3 Reasons You Should NOT Hire The Cheapest Roof Contractor
Putting a new roof on a home is one of the most expensive renovations to make but the least fun as a homeowner. It feels much more rewarding to put the investment into a brand-new kitchen or a bathroom. A new roof is one of the most important investments because it protects the structure of your home. Here are three reasons why you should never hire the cheapest roof contractor.
- A new roof is a significant investment
A new roof is one of the biggest investments made in a home. A cheap roof may cost you in the long run. If you hire a cheap roof contractor, the work will not be done well, and this could compromise the structure of your home. Installing a new roof over an old roof may save money, but previous moisture damage may only be covered up. This will lead to more serious problems later. Quality work means added value to your property.
When it comes to a roofing contractor, ‘you get what you pay for,’ is most likely to be true. Some contractors may offer cheap estimates that do not cover the whole job. There is a difference between cheap and affordable. If a roof contractor is thousands of dollars lower than competitors in the area, costs are being cut somewhere. Do your research! Make sure the roofing contractor is licensed and insured. Ask about clean up and waste removal. What is the plan for bad weather? Are these items covered in your roof estimate? Better Business Bureau suggests that these questions be asked before hiring a roofing contractor.
Do your research! Make sure the roofing contractor is licensed and insured. Make sure the contractor is experienced in installing the roofing system you need. Find a contractor with a good reputation. Get testimonials of previous customers to verify the quality of work.
