Around Wappingers Falls, every business has choices in selecting a commercial roofer. How you go about picking the perfect partner for your commercial roof is a matter of personal preference, but some basic, foundational truths apply.

Local Ties

A good commercial roofer is proud to be part of a community. When vetting roofers, ask if they are part of a national chain or are tied to the area through family, community action and local ownership.

A local company should also have the years of local experience needed to know the area. What weather patterns, building trends and construction projects drive local markets? A commercial roofer with, say, 40 years of experience working in and among Wappingers Falls businesses is preferable to a startup roofer recently relocated from another state.


A high-quality commercial roofer will also be part of local and national affiliations. Consider the level of interaction and involvement needed to be connected to these organizations:

  • The Northeastern Subcontractors Association
  • Orange County Chamber of Commerce
  • North/East Roofing Contractors Association
  • Dutchess County Chamber of Commerce
  • National Roofing Contractors Association
  • Building Owners and Managers Association
  • Association for Facilities Engineering

Beyond the Roof

A really exceptional commercial roofer will go above and beyond simply selling and installing roofs. A typical business strategy for top-tier roofers will be to offer the customer far more than other companies:

  • Powerful, valuable commercial roofing warranties that last up to 25 years
  • A planned preventive maintenance agreement
  • Options for eco-friendly green roofing solutions
  • An accurate, tracked bidding process for peace of mind

Couple these qualities with friendly customer service and you have a worthwhile commercial roofing contractor worthy of working on your company’s roof.
