Get references and ask for phone numbers. There’s nothing better than getting it straight from the horse’s mouth.

if they lived up to their commitments and promises. Also ask about whether they completed the job on time. You don’t want a roofing job going on forever.

3 Check Employment Standards.

It is critical to find out how they source their employees. The last thing you want is for a company to use subcontractors to do their work, as to be honest you have no idea where they’ve come from, what training they’ve had and how committed they are to any project. You ideally should look for companies that have trained and uniformed long term employees. Also check their code of conduct.

4 They must be Licensed and Insured
A roofing specialist in commercial roofing Minneapolis MN and commercial roofing South Metro MN areas must be licensed as well as insured. They need to have liability insurance for at least $100,000 per occurrence and at least $25,000 property damage coverage. They will also need to have Minnesota Workers’ Compensation Insurance.

This is to protect you in case they go out of business. Never allow any work to start until you have all the certificates.

5 Check they’re Financially Solid
Make sure the contractor you are dealing with is financially solid. Check this out by calling vendors and suppliers to check that they’re paying up. Also an alarm bell should ring if they want too much money up front. Stay away from this one for sure. If anything seems odd then steer clear.
