As commercial roofers in Atlanta, we know business owners want only the best when it comes to contractors who are professionals, and you don’t want someone who is going to try to sell you services you don’t need. When you have a problem, you want to feel confident the company that has come to assess the situation employs contractors who are skilled and knowledgeable. Below we’re sharing three things you don’t want to hear when having your commercial roof looked at.
It will take less than an hour to inspect your roof
Sure that would be nice, but this isn’t sufficient time to fully assess the roof and determine where damage and wear exists. A thorough inspection includes:
- Pinpointing any suspect areas where leaks or wet insulation may be present, through an infrared scan.
- Performing a visual check that is thorough and includes the perimeter, expansion joints, drainage system, roof field, flashed areas, areas around installed equipment, penetrations, etc.
- Determining the composition of your roof by taking core samples and properly sealing or replacing extraction sites.
- Providing you a detailed inspection report covering all that was found.
I’ll attempt to make the repair, but I’m not familiar with this type of commercial roof system
This should be obvious; you don’t want a contractor who has never worked with your type of roof system making repairs to your roof, as it could result in additional damage. Continue your search and find a roofer who is qualified and skilled in your type of roof.
Your roof needs to be replaced ASAP
Scare tactics are a bad thing, and “sketchy” contractors often use these tactics to get business owners to make an on the spot decision about something that may not even be necessary. If you called because you have a leak and are immediately told you need to replace the roof, send the contractor on his way. A thorough inspection is necessary to determine whether your roof needs to be replaced, so beware of contractors who make this assumption right off the bat.
