Becoming a Full-Service Contractor

As a commercial roofing contractor, you provide a vital service to building owners and property managers in your local area.  However, if you are not a full-service contractor, you might be missing out on the opportunity to provide a long-term relationship with your clients.

In the past, commercial roofing systems were known as “set it and forget it” applications.  After they were installed, the contractor would move along to the next and not look back.  While this worked for quite some time, manufacturers slowly began to add wording to their warranties that included the need for annual maintenance.  If you haven’t read your preferred manufacturers warranty, we suggest you do that as soon as possible.

As the industry has changed, contractors have also changed and adapted.  Instead of only focusing on repairs and replacements, contractors must now focus on more to protect the longevity of the roofs that they complete.

What is a Full-Service Contractor?

A full-service contractor is a service provider who can provide virtually any roofing solution needed for their clients.  This can include:

  • Repairs
  • Replacements
  • Restorations
  • Inspections
  • Maintenance
  • And more

When you are able to provide all of these services for business owners in your area, they can see that you are someone that they can partner with for the longevity of their current roofing system, and after installation of the next one!

Why This is Valuable to You

A roof replacement is an expensive expenditure that most business owners and property managers put off as long as they can.  When you work with them to provide other solutions, like repairs and restorations, you open the doors for a vital working relationship.  By showing them you care about their facility, as well as their budget, they will be more willing to have you provide the replacement when that dreaded time (for them) comes.

When you replace a roof for a new client, showing them that you have the best interest of their facility in mind, and the new product you installed for them, will continue to build confidence.  Routine maintenance and inspections can protect their new investment and cut the cost of future repairs.

All in all, becoming a full-service contractor is vital for contractors, as well as for the clients they serve.  If you’re interested in learning more, we hope you will reach out to the team at Top Roof Contractors to see how we can help you maintain a full-service commercial roofing operation.  You can reach us at 800-795-4029.

Importance of Third-Party Verification

How Contractors are Vetted

Each contractor that applies for membership goes through our third-party verification system in order for our badge to truly mean something of value.  We require the following before acceptance into the network:

  • Three or more Commercial Roofing References
  • Proof of Insurance
  • Proof of Business Licenses in Your Area (if applicable)
  • Background Check

The background check searches for the following:

  • Social Security Verification
  • Criminal Record Search
  • Civil Record Search
  • National Criminal Record Search

But we don’t stop there.  After you have become an approved contractor, we will continue to check your insurance and business licenses yearly, and follow up with each business owner/property manager that we connect you with.  This is just another way we help position your company as the “top” choice for your local area.

Why This Is Important

Building owners and property managers already have enough on their hands.  Their expensive roofs are valuable investments that they don’t want to trust to just anyone.  By having this important verification process already complete, you are able to give your potential clients additional peace of mind.

Our goal at Top Roof Contractors is to provide connections between contractors and business owners that are respected and long-lasting.  Our third-party verification is the first step towards a thriving business relationship. Plus, once in the network, you can directly reach out to other contractors who have all met the same criteria.
