With so many roofing companies and contractors around these days, it can be hard knowing which one to choose and why you should choose them. Some contractors may charge less and deliver sub-par work while some may charge more and still deliver a poor result. In this article we hope to explain the benefits of choosing a commercial roofing company like North Vancouver Roofing & Contracting over other any old independent contractor.
First and foremost a commercial roofer will not only ensure a better job to keep you safe but will also have safety equipment in use to avoid any potential accidents that may happen while working on top of a house. This equipment can be expensive, and many small businesses and contractors will simply trust their balance rather than taking precautions.
Following Building Codes
A commercial roofer such as ourselves will always ensure that anything we build follows the codes set by whichever city you live in. If you don’t follow these codes, an inspection by the city will quickly reveal any errors and, in the worst-case scenario, may lead to your roof having to be demolished. You don’t want to risk wasting all that money for something that will be torn down.
Adhering To Your Budget
Projects like roof installations can easily go over budget, if you use an independent contractor you may be stung with a huge additional charge that you didn’t expect once the work is complete. With a commercial roofer you know in advance how much the project will cost and how long it will take.
Another thing that independent contractors and companies will lack is warranty. This means that in the likelihood that they do a poor job, when it begins to fall apart and cause problems, they are in no way liable and you will end up paying more to repair something that should have been done right the first time. Commercial roofers will have insurance, for example, North Vancouver Roofing & Contracting offers a 10-year warranty for any work we do. Leaving you with peace of mind that the job will be done properly from the beginning.
When using a commercial roofing company, you will be able to save money on the materials required for your roof as they will be able to source them at a wholesale price by buying in bulk. Ordinary people and independent contractors will use a local hardware store and will be paying full price for anything they purchase.
In the unlikely and unfortunate event that your roof collapses or begins to come apart, it is possible that it can injure someone. If someone is hurt by your roof, an independent contractor will claim no responsibility and you will find yourself liable. A commercial roofing company provides insurance that should anything happen because of their work, they are liable and will take care of any potential lawsuits. After reading this we hope that you are more aware of the problems independent roofers can cause and that you properly understand the benefits of using a professional roofer.
