How To Avoid Being The Victim of a Bad Roofing Job
As professional roofing contractors, we’ve been contacted several times to fix up the mess of unlicensed contractors and even DIY roofing jobs. Not all roofs are created the same and our staff provides training for every one of our roofers to make sure that common roofing job mistakes do not occur. We stand behind our work and we offer a comprehensive warranty on any of the roofing jobs that we complete.
If you’ve worked with another contractor, or even attempted a DIY fix, we want to help you out and get your roof back up to code. Keep in mind that these roofing issues can happen to anyone but here are some of the best ways that you can avoid being the victim of a bad roofing job.
Don’t Pay Too Much Up Front
No reputable roofer will ask you to pay the majority of your bill up front. If someone is using high-pressure tactics to get you to sign a contract or to get you to pay the funds up front, they may be trying to cheat you and do a quick job on the repair.
Ask About Permits
If the contractor wants you to get a permit or suggests that a permit isn’t needed to complete a full roofing job, you should consider going with a different contractor. Contractors typically handle the process of permits.
Check Online Reviews or Get a Referral
Learn more about the long-term clients with a roofer. If you can find out what happened after the roofer left, the type of customer service that they provide, and what you can expect from the craftsmanship, you will have more confidence during your roofing job.
