Whether you need a roof repair or replacement, obtaining quotes from multiple contractors is essential. Doing so will give an idea about the cost of your project and determine who is the ideal roofer for you. However, many people make the mistake of choosing the contractor who is offering the lowest bid.
Keep on reading to find out why you should be wary of low roofing estimates.
As much as possible, you should choose the best-quality materials that are within your budget. Make sure that the quote your prospective roofer provides includes all the materials that would be used during the project. It should not only list all the parts, but these components must be correct. If the contractor offers a lower price than others, ask why. It could be that they are missing some materials on their list, or they are using low-quality products.
Trying to Make the Budget Work When It Doesn’t
When planning a roof replacement project, you must set a realistic budget and expectations. Even before you consult a contractor, you must already have a budget in mind. A typical indication that your prospective roofers might attempt to low-bid you is if they ask what your budget is even before they assess your roof or provide quotes.
Not Offering After-the-Sales Benefits
Your roofer should give you peace-of-mind before, during and after the installation. A reputable contractor would offer you after-safe benefits. It usually includes comprehensive warranties for material and labor. By offering a workmanship warranty, contractors can show how confident they are about the services they are offering.
