Easy Ways to Avoid Working With a Bad Roofer
No matter how high-quality the roofing material is, your roof will only turn out as well as the workmanship invested into it. For that reason, it is important to find a reputable roofing contractor to partner with in order to get the results that you want, need and deserve.
Some of the ways in which you can avoid hiring the wrong so-called pro may surprise you:
- A true industry expert is willing to listen to you and answer questions. A roofer to avoid is the type of talks over you or ignores your input. They simply want to tell you their assessment and have no interest in what you have to say. This type of know it all approach often is in place to hide the fact that they don't know as much as they'd like you to think and that they lack experience.
- They try to avoid paperwork, including written estimates. It is impossible for both parties to just remember the agreement you had in place. You can bet at the end of the job the written out receipt won't look like what you talked about. Bad news, now you don't have a leg to stand on in regards to proving what you two initially agreed on. Don't pay and they could put a lien on your home.
- You knew you needed a few minor repairs but this contractor is suddenly listing all these other issues they want to address. If this is during the estimate phase, you can still back out or at least get a second opinion. If they have already started the work, it is a whole other problem. They often leave your roof in a state of disrepair so you can't halt the process and get a second opinion. However, if you manage to avoid hiring a less than scrupulous roofer from the beginning, you won't have to worry about this type of scam.
