Choosing A Commercial Roofing Contractor

How Do I Pick The Best California Commercial Roofing Contractor / Company?

Quality and roofing experience come first

Selecting the right commercial roofing contractor for your Los Angeles County, California or Southern California roofing project should be your first priority. Business Owners need to consider the following important criteria when choosing a roofing contractor. Stone Roofing has a documented history of meeting and exceeding expectations in each category. Before selecting any roofing professional, keep in mind that quality and experience come first when you make that final decision.

Research whether the prospective roofing company satisfies these key areas of concern:

Business Reliability

  • Reliability starts at the top! Your roof will last over 20 years, so you want to make sure your roofing contractor will still be around.
  • We suggest choosing a commercial roofing contractor with at least 10 years in the Southern California market.
  • Check out your employer’s history with the Better Business Bureau

Financial Stability & Bonding

  • Make sure that your California Roofing Contractor will guarantee all work and is bonded, and can assure financial strength.

All Under One Roof

  • Using multiple contractors or subcontractors for different trades as Sheet Metal and AC will lead to longer timelines and finger-pointing.
  • Ask your roofer who will be working on your roof.

Extended Roofing Warranties

  • Only contractors with enough experience, square feet installed, and repair ratio can offer you an extra 5 to 10 years on your warranty.
  • Check with the manufacturer and make sure your warranty gets registered.

Permit Processing

  • The #1 reason for delays in projects is incorrect permitting. Choose a contractor that can show you how many permits they process in your city.
  • Ask your contractor how many permits they process on a monthly basis.

Roofing Safety First

  • Safety should be the number one priority.  Ask your contractor about the Roof Safety Program.  Do they have a safety prevention plan with a good construction plan in place?

24/7 Service

  • Even the best roof can fall victim to severe weather outbreaks, fallen trees, vandals and other unexpected events. Who do you call?
  • Confirm that your Roof Contractor is available 24/7 – 365 days  in case of unexpected emergencies.

Reputation, Pride & Integrity

  • Pictures can say a thousand words. Choosing a roofing contractor that can back up their claims of quality with job pictures, both during the installation and of the final product, can help prevent surprises in quality and professionalism.
  • Ask your roofing contractor for pictures and references of completed projects and in-progress photos.

Roofing Repairs

  • You have a job to do and it should not be the roof.
  • Ask for references from customers 5 years past and ask how many repairs were needed after installation.


  • Feel good about purchasing your new roof.
  • Ask your potential roofing contractors what they do for the community, in addition to their clients.

Best Value Proposition

  • Know what you are getting for your money.
  • The price is competitive but over the life of the roof, which bid is your lowest cost/ROI?
