3 Essentials to Look for in a Commercial Roofing Contractor

3 Essentials to Look for in a Commercial Roofing Contractor

There are certain characteristics of companies you want to work with and characteristics you hope to never encounter. When you’re on the hunt for a commercial roofing contractor, there are a few specific things you should be on the lookout for. We’ve put together a list of three essential factors to look for in a roofing contractor.

Quality of Service

Your first priority is getting a high-quality roof installed on your building but finding the best company to work with shouldn’t take a backseat. It makes all the difference to find a roofing contractor who will do whatever they can to help you. You want to work with someone who will ask questions to make sure they understand exactly what you want and expect out of your roof – and then deliver on that expectation.

The best roofing contractors will act with integrity every time. They will get the job done to your standards, no matter what. 

The level of service a contractor offers is also reflected in their knowledge of the industry. A great contractor will be able to walk you smoothly through every step of the process: quoting, planning, executing, and completing a roofing project. Everyone you work with should be knowledgeable in the solutions available, your existing roof, and even possible alternatives.

Quality of service can be measured by how their sales team speaks to you before you sign an agreement, but if you’re not sure, you can always seek out reviews from former clients of theirs.


Finding a roofing contractor that has been in the business long enough to handle anything thrown at them is an important factor in getting the best job done. A company that has been around for several decades has seen every type of roof and done every type of project. 

You know you’re in good hands when a company has a proven history of success. A long line of happy customers is proof enough of that.

The longer a company has been in business, the longer they have had to perfect their techniques and prove the quality of their work. That means better materials, better workmanship, and a better roof every time.

Products Offered

Did you know that it’s better to find a roofing contractor that specializes in one or two products, rather than one that runs the gamut? 

When a company specializes in a certain product, that means they know that material forward and backward. Do your research and look for a company that specializes in the type of roof you think you want for your building.

For example, IRC has worked with spray polyurethane foam (SPF) for years. SPF is our bread and butter. We can attest to the strength of this material for commercial roofing and know every situation where this material would work best in.

Whatever material you want to work with, you want to make sure it will stand the test of time and, hopefully, save you money in the long run.

With over 40 years in business and over 140 million square feet of roof installed, IRC is a commercial roofing contractor you can trust. When you need the best, we offer the best. Whether you have one building or one thousand, IRC has you covered. There has been no project that is too big or complicated for us to handle.
