Today, I would like to share some of my roofing experience with all my readers…
You’ve probably already heard many horror stories about bad contractors, including roofers. That is why it is important that you select the best one when re-roofing or installing a new roof. In this article I will explain some things that you need to consider when hiring a roofer.
If a roofer did a good job at your friend’s place, it will probably do good job at your place as well. You should also ask your friends, family members and coworkers for any bad experience – this way, you will be able to avoid the bad ones.
2) Price is NOT Everything
There are several roofing contractors that don’t know the business well, but they offer low prices. With the low prices, they are trying to attract customers that are just looking for the lowest possible price, without checking the quality. If the offer sounds too good to be true, it probably is.
3) Check for Online Reviews
Online reviews can be very helpful – most of them are real, so they can be trusted. If a contractor has 10+ positive reviews online, it’s probably good. Besides positive reviews, you should also look at the negative ones. What is the worst thing they have to say about a roofer?
4) Meet With The Roofer Before The Work Starts
Always schedule a meeting with the roofer before you hire him. This way, a roofer will see the job that needs to be done and will be able to give you a better estimate of the work. You will also be able to see whether a roofer is a professional or not by his vehicle, attitude and other things.
5) Use Common Sense
Make sure you always listen to your feeling . If you have a bad feeling about a certain contractor, don’t hire him – there are many other ones available.
So, always make sure you work with the best possible contractors – this includes roofers as well. They may cost a bit more, but they are probably cheaper on the long run.
I wish you all the best!
