Maintaining good working relationships with commercial general contractors will give commercial property owners the security of knowing that their business won’t be jeopardized by roofing problems. If you are a commercial property owner or manager, read on as we discuss how you can maintain a good working relationship with your commercial roofing contractor.
Choose the Right Contractor
It sounds like a no-brainer, but many working relationships fail because of a mismatch between client and contractor. The property owner may not have made the right choice by choosing an unqualified contractor or one that doesn’t have the extent of services that their property requires.
This is why taking the time and care to find the right contractor is important, and it goes beyond just choosing one with a valid license, insurance coverage and accreditation. Review their list of industrial construction services and the products they represent and other factors such as proximity and reputation. It is likely that you will receive several bids for your property, so make it a point to carefully examine each one before making your decision.
Know Your Contractual Obligations
Hiring a commercial roofing contractor is more often than not a long-term commitment, and often involves a contract that stipulates responsibilities between the contractor and yourself. Take the time to understand every stipulation in the contract, and make sure you follow through with your obligations. This includes periodic checks, keeping the contractor updated in case of roofing issues, as well as adhering to scheduled maintenance checks and timely repairs.

It makes sense not just from a business standpoint, but more importantly, it also helps ensure that our customers’ properties are well taken care of.
