As a commercial property owner or manager, you can’t afford for your roofing to be substandard. And, when you do have roofing issues, you need them repaired quickly and reliably. However, when it comes to selecting the right roofing company to get the job done, you may not know where to turn. You know you want someone experienced, dependable, and responsive. But how do you assess a roofing company?
Below we provide some helpful guidance on selecting a commercial roofer and why you should always go with a local company.
Always Choose a Local Roofing Company
While it may not seem important at first, it is crucial that you only work with a local commercial roofer. Here in Colorado Springs, we see a lot of “storm chasers” coming in from out of the area and even out of the state. These roofers tend to offer too-good-to-be-true deals, perform substandard work, and then disappear, leaving you high and dry.
A local roofing company, with a well-established reputation in the community, will be accountable for the work they perform. They are also easier to vet, and you can verify that they are licensed and insured. Furthermore, a local roofer not only understands what you’re dealing with but is always available to answer your questions. Local roofers are invested in developing a lasting relationship with you.

Look for a Well-Rounded Company with Comprehensive Commercial Services
When it comes to choosing a commercial roofing company to install or repair your roof, experience matters. In addition to being well-established in the area, it is also important that your roofer is experienced in all types of commercial roofing. The more your roofer knows and the more experience they have, the better able they are to provide you with the services you need.
For example, at Divine Roofing, Inc., we install, repair, and replace all types of commercial roofing systems, including:
Does the Roofing Company Offer Emergency Services?
Ideally, when selecting a commercial roofer, you are choosing a company you will work with for years to come and who will get to know your particular property. Just as it is important that your roofing company can work with all types of roofing materials and offers a wide range of commercial services, it is crucial that they also offer emergency services. If your roof is damaged in a storm or other event, you need your roofer there to help you as quickly as possible with repairs.
Companies that do not offer emergency services will leave you waiting for the next available appointment. After a storm has come through, this can take days or even weeks. Meanwhile, your property is exposed to further damage, and your business or tenants may be impacted.
Divine Roofing, Inc. is proud to offer all commercial customers the very best emergency roofing services around. When disaster strikes, we are there for you. We act quickly, provide temporary shelter for your roof, and help you get your property back to normal as quickly as possible.
Do They Have Positive Reviews?
After confirming that the roofing company is licensed and insured, you should spend some time looking up reviews for the company you are considering. With a good, local roofing company, it should not be difficult to find legitimate reviews and examples of their work. When looking at reviews, you should do more than look at their overall star rating – read up on the quality of their work and how they treat their customers. Furthermore, many reviewers will provide pictures of the work they had done.
Relatedly, a good roofing company won’t shy away from providing you with references when asked. If the company isn’t proud of their work and therefore isn’t willing to share references with you, it is a red flag, and you should look elsewhere. At Divine Roofing, Inc. we take pride in our craftsmanship and we happily provide our customers with references and examples of our work.
