Quality materials and proper installation are crucial for your roof system to perform according to standards. Sadly, there are some contractors who take advantage of their clients or cut corners in order to save money or earn more profit.
In today’s post from Frame Restoration Roofing and Construction, we look at some of the most common roofing scams that are used to trick customers. We also share a few tips on how you can avoid dishonest contractors.
Unscrupulous companies would sometimes bait customers with an extremely low bid, only to increase the prices in the middle of the project due to “unforeseen circumstances.” While such unexpected situations may really happen in some cases, you should still be wary if you are offered a quote that’s below industry average. It helps to compare prices from different businesses, but you should also review the items or services included in the written estimates you receive.
Some contractors will make you believe that your roof needs certain repairs when they’re not necessary at all. If you are unsure about the roofing issue being pointed out or if the roofer can’t explain the problem well, you might want to consult another contractor that you trust.
Storm chasers move from one place to another, offering their services door-to-door in areas that have been recently hit by a storm. In some cases, the roofers are well-meaning; they will knock at your door and offer to repair your damaged roof. However, to be safe, only deal with or invite roofers into your home when you have personally called them up. Storm chasers may leave you with substandard work. And since they are not based in your area, it would be impossible to run after them.
