Certain qualities are prioritized when selecting a new vehicle: appearance, reliability, quality, fuel economy and most certainly price.

When you’re house hunting, you might be looking at close proximity to work or school, square footage, neighborhood safety ratings and, of course, the price.

With any big decision, it’s important to list what qualities are important and build a checklist to ensure you’re making the right choice.

Selecting a commercial roofing company certainly qualifies as a big decision, both from cost and longevity standpoints. Below is a list of 10 qualities you want in a roofing company:

Local: Many companies claim to be “local,” but in reality, their headquarters might be located in another part of Florida or even another state. Hiring subcontractors or day laborers from the area does not constitute being local. Target Roofing is proud of its state-of-the-art sheet metal shop and 19,668-square-foot headquarters in Southwest Florida that is home to the company’s 200-plus full-time roofing professionals.

Ethical: Every business wants to make a profit, but it should be done the right way. Target Roofing offers honest (and free!) estimates for commercial projects, which allows clients to know exactly what our experts are recommending, how much it will cost and when the project will be completed.

Trusted: Seek out references from property managers and business owners, and check reviews on Facebook, Angie’s List and Google. Target Roofing also features reviews on its web page and is proud of its A+ rating from the Better Business Bureau.

Experienced: A roof may cost tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars, but it can be a multimillion-dollar investment that protects you and everything inside your property. From surveyors and estimators to superintendents and roofers, Target Roofing’s team members have dedicated their careers to roofing and have completed hundreds of high-rises, apartment buildings, condominiums, shopping plazas, churches, schools and government facilities.

Committed: Renting or leasing equipment is a short-term solution that allows a business that cannot or does not want to make an investment to use equipment for a temporary period. Target Roofing owns all of its equipment, including heavy machinery, because the company is here to stay.

Responsive: Roof leaks and storm damage warrant immediate attention, even if they’re discovered at nights and on weekends. Target Roofing answers its telephone – 239-332-5707 – 24 hours a day and seven days a week.

Reliable: Construction projects can be an inconvenience, so time is of the essence when repairing or replacing a roof. Target Roofing’s team members are known for their punctuality and reputation for getting jobs done “on time and on target.”

Certified: Contractors in Florida are required to be licensed and insured to perform work in the state, but the roofing companies truly invested in the trade also seek outside certification through professional associations and belong to industry groups like the National Roofing Contractors Association. Manufacturers also offer certifications and awards. For example, GAF, the leading roof manufacturer in North America, honored Target Roofing as a Triple Excellence Award winner.

Professional: Employees of any business should be easily identifiable and adhere to a professional code of conduct. Target Roofing employees wear uniforms and drive vehicles with the company logo, and each new hire undergoes thorough background checks and training programs to ensure high standards are maintained.

Innovative: Roofing isn’t typically considered a technologically driven industry, but advances in materials and equipment are helping to improve efficiency and maintain costs. Target Roofing stays ahead of industry trends and raised the bar for 21st century roofing companies with its investments in equipment and training.
