Compare 2 or more

Once you have a decided on a couple of business to do the rooftop Metalwalk® system install, get some references and check them. Every good contracting business should be able to offer some references.
Learn about Business
When looking at a company to do install a metal building roof walkway system, make sure that it has an office. Check to see how long it has been in business. A company that has a physical location and has been around a long time is likely to be around after the job is done.
Check Better Business Bureau
Not having any complaints registered with the BBB is a positive. However, it shouldn’t be the only criteria that you use.
Check License and Bonding
Be sure that the company has the correct licenses and is bonded and insured. Bonding and insurance will protect you from any liability or damage done by the company when they are on your property. Additionally, it protects you from a worker’s compensation claim if someone gets hurt on the job.
Get an Installation Warranty
While many manufactures offer a product warranty, it doesn’t cover problems with the installation. See what kind of warranty the contractor offers on the installation of the product.
Learn Who Does the Work
If the company uses subcontractors to do the work, you may not get the quality that you want. Because subcontractors typically get paid by the job, they may rush the project and cut corners.
