The Value of Longevity in the Commercial Roofing Industry

Finding a commercial roofing contractor can be overwhelming. As you prepare to make a substantial investment in your building, you want to make sure you choose the right company. But with so many choices, how do you make the best decision? We view longevity as one of the most valuable assets for a commercial roofing company. Let’s take a look at what makes longevity such a critical element. 

Why Longevity is Important in the Commercial Roofing Industry

Extensive Industry Knowledge

In any industry, years of experience lead to a more knowledgeable team. Commercial roofing companies are no different. Those that have been in business for years have worked on countless projects and have learned from each one. Longevity allows roofing companies to develop extensive knowledge that they can use to better serve their customers.

Fine-Tuned Processes

Years of work and fine-tuning a company’s operations leads to better safety, customer service, and overall project efficiency. Companies that have completed a large number of projects over several years have found the most efficient way to carry out their work.

Proven Track Record

With years of work comes years of loyal customers and completed projects that can speak to a roofing contractor’s value. It’s crucial to look for a company with a comprehensive background of work. Longevity allows a roofing company to build an extensive record of work and customer recommendations.

Commitment to Employees and Customers

A roofing company that shows up for its people year after year demonstrates integrity. Look to well-established roofing contractors that emphasize their commitment to people, employees and customers alike. Companies that have withstood the test of time are those that have taken care of their employees and while providing great customer service, because it’s people who make a company truly great.

Higher Quality Products and Services

New roofing companies hoping to land the sale will often offer discounted prices and, with that, cheaper-quality products. Companies with longstanding reputations are focused on offering customers quality service that will keep their roofs lasting as long as possible. 

Through decades of working in the commercial roofing industry, Maxwell Roofing & Sheet Metal, Inc. has learned a valuable lesson about business: trust and reputation are earned over time. To be competitive in the industry, roofing companies must show time and time again that they can finish a job on schedule with quality workmanship.

Why Reputation Matters When Choosing a Commercial Roofing Partner

When choosing a commercial roofer for a new building, the budget is often the first consideration. But while affordability is important, a “budget roofer’s” poor work may end up costing your company more in the long run.

Finding a commercial roofing company with a good reputation is the best thing you can do for the quality and life of your commercial roof. Maxwell Roofing & Sheet Metal, Inc. knows that reputation is more than just gossip. It’s trust that’s built through years of good work. Reputable roofing companies should embody these six qualities:

  1. More Experience—The best roofing companies will have had at least ten years on the job, preferably more. With more than 60 years of commercial roofing experience, Maxwell Roofing has seen it all.
  2. Better Safety Record—Companies that have accidents on the job or build roofs with liability issues never develop good reputations. If your roofer comes recommended, it means they know how to keep their employees (and yours) safe on the roof.
  3. More Expertise—To build a good reputation, roofing companies need to keep their employees up-to-date on the latest trends and technology. Maxwell Roofing has experts in everything from energy-efficient roofs to custom metal fabrication, ensuring that you’ll have the expertise needed to get your commercial roof done right.
  4. Better Value—Cheap is not the same thing as a good value. While cheap roofers will skimp on your roof to keep costs down, good value roofers find ways to get you more for your money and to make your roof last. Our team at Maxwell offers customers a full roof management service called MAXCare that ensures their roof is well cared for and cuts down on surprise costs that come with poor workmanship.
  5. Professionalism—Good reputations are built by treating customers right. Maxwell’s team prioritizes customer service, and our sales team and project managers always keep our customers informed.
  6. Quality—Though it might cost more up-front, using a roofer with a good reputation ensures that you will get a quality roof that will last. Maxwell does all we can to extend the life of your roof and to eliminate costly mistakes in the construction process.
