We Dare You To Compare!
Compiled below is a list of important criteria for any business owner, Property Manager, or consultant to consider when selecting the right contractor for roofing projects. Advanced Roofing has a documented history of meeting and exceeding expectations in each category. Before selecting any roofing professional, research whether the prospective company satisfies these key areas of concern, or as we like to say Dare to Compare.
Longevity in Business
Your roof will last over 20 plus years, so you want to make sure your roofing contractor will still be around. We suggest using a contractor with at least 15 years of experience in the Florida Market. Established in 1983, Advanced Roofing has three decades of re-roofing and service experience with a history of success.

Contractors go under because they do not have proper financials and safety procedures in place. Advanced Roofing is financially stable and consistently ranked among the top earning contractors in the State of Florida by Roofing Contractor Magazine and the South Florida Business Journal.
Ask for audited financials, bank references, surety information and/or check online at www.db.com.
All Under One Roof
Using multiple contractors or subcontractors for different trades as Sheet Metal and AC will lead to longer timelines and finger pointing. Advanced Roofing has in-house divisions in HVAC, sheet metal, cranes, trash, lightning protection, and solar energy to ensure your next project is completed on time and within budget.
Ask your roofer who will be working on your roof.
Only contractors with enough experience, square feet installed, and repair ratio can offer you an additional ten years on your existing warranty. Advanced Roofing is certified by every major roofing materials manufacturer to install the highest quality products with comprehensive warranties.
Check with the manufacturer and make sure your warranty gets registered.
The #1 reason for delays in projects is incorrect permitting. Choose a contractor that can show you how many permits they process in your city.
Ask your contractor how many permits they process on a monthly basis.
Full-Time Safety Division
Florida has many tall buildings and inclement weather that without safety protocols and proper management, an accident can stop or delay your project. Advanced Roofing has a full-time Safety Division dedicated to ensuring the safety of all job sites. With an Experience Modifier Ratio (EMR) of 0.68 Frank Furman Insurance ranks ARI among the safest contractors in the State of Florida.
Ask for your roofer’s EMR ratio.

Reputation, Pride, and Integrity
Pictures can say a thousand words. Choosing a contractor that can back up their claims of quality with job pictures, both during the installation and of the final product, can help prevent surprises in quality and professionalism.
Ask your roofing contractor for pictures and references of completed projects and in-progress photos.
You have a job to do and it should not be taking care of the roof. With multiple in-house divisions, state-of-the-art technology, seven office locations, and more than 350 employee’s, Advanced Roofing ensures your complete protection against roof leaks.
Ask for references from customers 5-10 years past and ask how many repairs were needed after the roof installation.

Best Value Proposition
Know what you are getting for your money. Any roofer can install roofing membrane. However, most leaks and system failures occur in the details of your roof system causing you to need frequent repairs after installation. These details can include the roof access hatch/ doors, walls, skylights, curbs, coping caps, exhaust, and HVAC stands to name a few that encompass your roof system. With more than 30 years of experience re-roofing occupied commercial buildings in Florida, Advanced Roofing specializes in the details and has earned many awards for its craftsmanship and excellence in overcoming difficult challenges in low-slope roofing. Some of the awards won include first place in the low slope roofing category from the FRSA Star Awards, CASF Craftsmanship Award, GAF Master Elite Contractor, Sarnafil Project of the Year, ABC Eagle Award, and QARC Award.
Ask your contractor who will perform the details on your project. Also, if the prices are competitive, which bid is your lowest cost/ROI over the complete life cycle of your roof system?
