What should you look for when hiring a residential roofing contractor? First.. make sure they specialize in roofing, or that it is one of their core competencies. As a general rule, roofing is a specialized skill with it's own codes, regulations, skill sets and equipment, so someone that is wearing the hat of a painter on Monday, a flooring guy on Tuesday and a residential roofing contractor on Wednesday may not be the right contractor for you.

What is the difference between a residential roofing contractor vs commercial? Should the 5 unit apartment building be performed by a residential roofing contractor? Should the flat tar and gravel roof on the downtown 3 family be done by a commercial guy? As always, it depends. Sometimes it's obvious, a single family house vs the Plaza. But for more gray areas as described above you should put some thought into the crew to call.

Commercial jobs can often be thought of as very large jobs, often flat or membrane roofs and will often have multiple protrusions. Sometimes a crane or specialized equipment is needed. Multiple crews may have to coordinate the job. Generally these are not issues with a residential roofing contractor. Regardless of the occupancy of the building, they will often be using asphalt shingles, flat or membrane roofing and most residential roofing contractors do not need to coordinate with heavy machinery or other crews.

The best advice we can give is ask. Ask the contractor or contractors giving you the bid what % of their total jobs are residential roofing contractor based, and ask for examples from the neighborhood for you to view. Ask for some done recently and some done several years ago... how are they holding up? Have they been in business for a long time? With today's 25, 30, 40, 50 and even lifetime warranty products, you want to make sure your residential roofing contractor will be around as well. A long warranty is useless if the company is out of business.
