Q&A on Commercial Roofing Projects
We know the importance of checking with the Better Business Bureau and investigating a contractor before hiring them for a residential roofing job. (READ Q&A Part 1) But what about commercial roofing projects? Is there as much of a gap in quality in commercial roofing companies that homeowners may suffer from fly-by night operations or storm chasers?
Sam Boak: CEO of Boak & Sons Inc., Austintown: As for commercial roofing companies going out and knocking on doors, trying to get work, usually the newer companies are doing that. The older reputable commercial roofing contractors that have been here for years, we’re not. We’re waiting for the phone to ring. When you’re ready, you’ll call us because you’ve heard our reputation. We tell business people to talk to other business people in our community, and contact your insurance company.
