Baltimore’s Premier Industrial Roofing Contractor

The roof is an essential part of your industrial building. There are instances when your industrial roof will need to be repaired or replaced. There are countless industrial roofers online, and this makes it hard for building owners to make a perfect choice. Here are some crucial tips for hiring the best industrial roofing contractor in Baltimore:

A Reputable Industrial Roofing Contractor should be licensed and Insured

Your potential industrial roofer must have both liability and employee compensation insurance. These insurance cover will safeguard you, in case an accident occurs in your industrial park. For instance, if an employee gets injured while completing your project, if the contractor has valid workers compensation, then you won’t have to worry about meeting the expenses related to treating the injury.

Liability insurance safeguards you from incidents that may occur on you while the roof is being installed. We recommend that you request the contractor to give you their insurance certificate even before they commence your project. Also, contact their insurance company to confirm whether their policies are valid and active.

Hire a Local Industrial Roofing Contractor

You might have heard industrial building owners complain about a roofer who did not arrive early to sort an emergency. In many cases, this occurs when you hire an out-of-town contractor who cares less about the local community they serve.

For that reason, you should hire a local industrial roofing contractor in Baltimore because they are concerned about the local community, offer prompt response to emergencies, and are familiar with local industrial building codes. Furthermore, if a problem arises, you can walk or drive to their regional offices to have it resolved.

Experience Matters

Countless industrial roofers claim to do excellent work. In most cases, only roofers who offer impressive services survive in this industry. Such roofers can handle complex industrial roofing projects that their new counterparts can’t handle.

Furthermore, reputable industrial roofing specialists have the required permits and licenses. Therefore choosing an experienced industrial roofer is one way of avoiding problems with authorities.

Industrial Roofing Equipment

You want to make sure that the contractor has all the right equipment that will solve your need. Hiring a contractor who does not have the required industrial roofing tools will not guarantee quality work being delivered.


It can be a daunting experience when your potential contractor does not respond to your texts or calls. If a contractor does not follow up on their conversation, how sure are you that he is going to deliver on his promises? Communication is a crucial component of any contracting business.

Use Their Previous Projects to Gauge their Expertise

Every roofer that you approach will boast of being an industry leader by his right. This makes it hard to select a professional contractor who meets your project requirements. If you are unsure about the past performance of your potential contractor, request photos of recent projects that they have completed. Experienced contractors will be proud to showcase their previous projects. On the flip side, weak roofers will have many excuses about why they don’t have photos of their recent projects. You should run from such contractors as they are there to swindle your hard-earned cash.

Don’t Allow Low Price to Mislead You

In Industrial roofing, you obtain what you pay for. Therefore if you select a roofer who provides ridiculous low prices, it is likely they will offer shoddy work, and you may end up spending a lot to correct the blemishes caused by such contractors.

Most reputable industrial roofing contractors charge relatively higher prices because they collaborate with manufacturers to offer both the craftsmanship and materials warranties. This means that you will not pay anything if problems arise after your industrial roof installation.

Request for a Budget Estimate

Before a contractor starts to work on your project, ensure that they first inspect your roof and provide a detailed estimate showing the full cost of the project or the pricing structure. A detail project estimate will assist you to compare various contractors and settle for the best.

“Your project isn’t fully finished until you’re fully satisfied”.


The answer to this depends on several key factors. The first of which is the size of your commercial roof. A 5,000 Square Foot roof will take a much shorter time to complete than it will to tear off and replace a 450,000 Square Foot roof. Second, does your roof have one layer or multiple layers? Multiple layers will likely add more time to the duration of your roof replacement. Other factors include the scope of the project and all of the components that need to be replaced. Third, the type of roof that you are looking to have put on is important. A roof coating can be directly applied over your existing roof and is the least disruptive. A coating would likely take less time than it will to tear-off and replace a TPO or rubber roof. Weather also plays a crucial role as Mother Nature can dictate if a project needs to be rescheduled. Prolonged storms could push the project’s completion date back.

Mother Nature is very unpredictable, and can disrupt even the strongest roof. Excessive winds & hail stones can penetrate and impact your roof. If left unrepaired, minor leaks and punctures can turn into major leaks or catastrophic roof failure. The best option after any storm is to schedule a free storm damage roofing inspection to have a professional provide an expert opinion. It is a good idea to have a roof inspection at-least twice a year for your commercial roof to check on its health bi-yearly.

When your flat roof starts leaking, that can serve as the most visible symptom that something in your roofing system is broken. If you have a newer roof, a leak may just be a minor and inexpensive fix. However, as a commercial roof ages, it becomes more brittle and vulnerable to the elements. It becomes more susceptible to each storm that passes through. One major wind storm or hail storm can cause catastrophic roof failure. The older a roof becomes, the more difficult it is to safely repair it. In some cases, repairs to aging roofs can cause more damage, and are difficult to guarantee as the patch may only hold for a short while. Not all roofs require full roof replacement, and some older roofs can qualify for roof restoration, which means having your roof spray coated which can extend the life of your roof for 10 or 20 years. A roof coating can cost 50% less than having your roof fully replaced, and is a strong option to consider for many.

What Should I Look For in a Commercial Roofing Contractor?


Should I Choose To Replace My Roof Or Restore It?


How Long Can a New Commercial Roof Last?



Not all commercial roofers have the same level of expertise or experience. The roof on your building is one of your most valuable investments, and keeps your tenants and their inventory safe. A leaky roof can disrupt a business’s day to day and damage valuable inventory. Moreover, a commercial roof replacement is an involved process, and the more efficient your roofer is, the quicker they can get out of your way and allow your business to resume normal day to day functions. You should consider a commercial roofers previous customer reviews, their gallery of flat roof jobs, their experience doing commercial jobs, the warranty, price, and the materials they are proposing to use. Quality and reliability of a commercial roofer are two of the most important factors.

This is an excellent question – with many building owners and property managers not even realizing that roof restoration and roof coatings are possible! In many instances, not all commercial flat roofs, low slope roofs & commercial metal roofs require being fully replaced! The solution is to have a roof coating applied over-top of your existing roof, restoring it, and providing it an extended 10 or 20 years lifespan. Roof coatings are less disruptive than having your roof entirely replaced. Roof coatings can also save you as much as 50% as compared to having your roof entirely replaced. Unfortunately, not all roofs are candidates, particularly if your roof has suffered extreme hail damage. This can be discussed during your free inspection.

This will depend on the type of roofing system that you decide to have installed on your building. Roof coatings, TPO, metal, rubber and rolled roofs all have different lifespans that we can discuss with you during your free inspection. Climate and environment can also play a role in the lifespan of your new commercial roof as hail and excessive wind can both wear down and break your roofing system. Lastly, the roofing contractor’s craftsmanship can impact how long your new roof lasts, as a contractor that does not adhere to manufacturer code and guidelines can not only void your warranty, but significantly decrease the lifespan of your roof.
