5 Benefits of Hiring a Professional Commercial Roofing Company in Houston TX
Updated: Jul 15, 2020
Your commercial roof is what protects you and your companies assets, that's why you can't afford to cut corners. Discover the real difference in hiring a experienced professional company vs a cheaper alternative.
We have seen many times when a company calls us out to fix a leak on their roof. Often the roof is new or has been recently "repaired" but because the previous company didnt have much experience they used the wrong material, installed it incorrectly, or was naive about certain issues with the roof. You might save money in the short run but often times you won't see the real issues until 1-2 years later and it will cost you more in the long run. In Houston TX you can be sure your roof will receive a lot of rain, that is why expertise matters.
If you hire a cheap roofing contractor where is the accountability? Ask yourself why would they be cheaper? The roofing industry doesn't always have the best reputation. Most roofing companies actually fail within 2 years. If the roofing company that you hired goes out of business who is going to honor that warranty? In the future if you have repairs or questions who is going to be there to address them. Hiring a local professional roofing company that has been in business for many years will give you the ease of mind knowing they are going to be accountable.
#3 BETTER INSTALLATION
A professional roofing company has been installing the same type of roof system for many years. You can be sure that they have the expertise to ensure your installation is done to the highest standard. A poorly installed roof increases the chances of problems occurring in the future. A cheaper roofing company will often have to hire inexperience workers to justify the cheap price they gave you. These workers might not have the training and experience to handle your roof. The material might be the same for two roofs, but if one hires a cheap roofing contractor that improperly installs your roof (Drains, Flashing, Boots, Parapet Walls, etc.) the life span of both roofs will be vastly different.
#4 BEST ROOF MATERIAL FOR YOUR NEEDS
Not all material are the same. Using the incorrect roofing materials can cause big problems. Restaurants, Strip Malls, Hotels, etc all have different needs. For instance in fast food restaurants you have to be mindful of the type of roof material you use because animal fat and grease build up in the roof and can actually break down certain roof material. In our personal experience we have even seen all sorts of material being used together that have no business working together. Once we saw a metal roof that had been "repaired" with ice & water shield. Ice & water shield should never been used above the metal roof, but because the owner didn't know and wanted to save money the work was left like that.
A professional roofing company can provide warranty for both labor and material. A cheap roofing company cannot offer you warranty and if they do there is no actual proof or evidence. Certain types of warranty that come from the manufacture requires a roofing company to become certified. That often includes going through a background check and going through product, installation, and warranty training. If there are problems with your roof within the time frame, they will have it inspected and resolved without any extra charges. Give yourself the peace of mind knowing your roof has a real warranty.
