The roof on your commercial building is probably something you tend not to think about, unless you have a reason. Issues with your roof system or leaks could result in a much bigger problem for your business, warehouse, etc. Commercial roofing in Texarkana is not something that can be done in a “DIY” fashion, so here are a few frequently asked questions (FAQs) about a new commercial roof in the Texarkana area.
Repair or replace?
Sometimes, a problem in a commercial roof can be solved by some patching or minor repair work. Ability to be repaired can depend on the roof’s age, condition, or damage. Consult with a Texarkana roofing company to get a professional opinion on whether your roof should be repaired or fully replaced.
What should I look for in a roofing contractor?
A roofing company should have a contracting license in the state that they are performing work in for any project over $50,000. Hostetler Roofing has contracting licenses in Arkansas and Oklahoma. Your roofing company should provide you with a physical copy of any estimate, contract, invoice, or receipt regarding your project. Finally, the roofing company you choose to do your roof should reflect family values. At Hostetler Roofing, we take pride in our family-based values: honesty, integrity, and accountability.
How often should my roof be inspected?
If you’ve just replaced your commercial roof, it should be inspected by roofing professionals every 9-12 months. Professionals can help catch issues such as leaks and storm damage, before they cause roof system failure. In the long run, having your roof professionally and regularly inspected can save you a load of stress and money.
What can I do on my end to speed up the roofing process?
If you are working with insurance, be sure to provide the Texarkana roofing company with your claim information, as well as regular updates on insurance payments. If you are on a time-budget, consider a roofing company with a close availability. Some roofing companies may be scheduled months out.
