What we do
RoofSource does much more than sell roofing products. As a manufacturer representative company, we partner with our clients on their roofing projects end-to-end. We help our clients assess their project needs, recommend the best products and specifications for their needs and budget, create a scope of work, assist with the contractor selection process, and maintain an on-site presence to make sure the job is done right.
Whether you need roofing repair or replacement, or whether you’re performing a simple maintenance inspection, RoofSource can provide an unbiased assessment of the condition of your roof and any services you need or don’t need. We visit the structure in person, inspect the roof to find out its condition, and prepare a full evaluation to assess the repair needs, if any.
You have many factors to consider when selecting roofing products, including the type of roof, building use, location, climate zone, exposure to weather and/or chemicals, budget, and other considerations. We partner with many manufacturers who offer a wide range of product lines, giving us the ability to help you select the ideal roofing solutions for your needs.
Roof specification writing defines what is needed to have the building meet building codes and industry-level standards, including the exact types of materials to be used so that bidders can incorporate those costs into their quotes. We help create a full set of construction documents that outline the repair or replacement of your commercial roofing system, including roof plans, product data sheets, project conditions, technical specifications, and the products recommended for the task at hand.
We represent product lines designed for many different roof types at varying price points, which gives us the latitude to recommend roofing solutions for a wide range of budgets. Understanding your budget expectations helps us make critical decisions and have frank conversations with you about how far your budget will go and what we can or cannot achieve within budget.
The contractor bidding process can be very confusing for building owners because every contractor has a different opinion on what needs to be done. We level the playing field by working with you to determine the scope of work and specifications beforehand. We then invite trusted contractors to review the project and bid on it. This process gives you a fair id comparison, so it’s much easier to choose the right contractor for the job.
On-Site Project Presence
RoofSource doesn’t just sell roofing products: we maintain a presence to ensure those products are installed to the manufacturer’s specifications. We visit the worksite to ensure the project kicks off correctly and then follow up with visits to ensure the installation goes according to plan. Our goal is for the final inspection to have as few items on the punch list as possible, ensuring the installation qualifies for warranty specifications.
RoofSource goes through a multi-step process to make sure your roofing project needs are fully met.
Step One: Discovery Meeting
We begin by scheduling a meeting with you to ascertain your needs for the project, considering your goals for the building and your budget.
Step Two: Building Assessment
We conduct a physical inspection of your roof itself, and we provide you an unbiased evaluation of the roof’s condition and the work that needs to be done.
Step Three: Scope of Work and Specification Documents
We draw from our interview and building assessment to provide options best suited to your needs based on many factors such as building codes, project location, system features, life-cycle costs, and available tax incentives. We compile these into documentation, detailing the scope of work to be performed, products to be used, and specifications to be presented to contractors.
Step Four: Bidding and Contractor Selection
We invite qualified contractors to bid competitively on the project based on the scope of work and specifications we have compiled. These bids are submitted directly to you to keep the process fair and unbiased.
Step Five: On-site Project Monitoring
At the beginning of construction, we show up to review the scope of work and specifications with the contractor you select and make sure the project starts correctly. We follow up with additional visits to monitor progress and provide a final inspection and report on the finished project.
Our job is simple – to protect your building assets.
