Avoid a bad roofing job with these five signs of a bad roofing contractor.
Quality roofing companies proudly show off their website and online reviews on Google, social media, or other review sites. If you can’t find online information about a roofing company, they may be avoiding issues with other customers or hiding the fact that they do not have a roofing license or insurance.
A roofing company that can’t show you a valid license and up-to-date insurance information isn’t qualified to work on your home. Don’t feel guilty asking for proof of a license and insurance. A good roofing company will recognize that you are doing your due diligence.
When you have to wait for roof repairs, the damaged area has time to worsen and grow. Roof replacement delay puts your entire home or building in danger, sometimes to the point of a roof collapse. If your contractor delays your roof repair or replacement multiple times, you need to call a legitimate roofing company.
Good contractors are always willing to stand by their work. If you’re working with a bad roofing company, they could install your new roof but refuse to discuss or perform repairs once they’ve finished the job.
If your roofing contractor won’t answer questions about their process, they may be hiding information from you. Bad roofing contractors cut corners by using low-quality materials or skipping proper installation procedures to complete your roof for a higher profit on their end.
The easiest way to avoid a bad roofing job is to do your research. Take time to find a good, well-reviewed company online that keeps their appointments and is happy to comply with your requests for licensure, insurance, and process review. Whether you’re re-roofing your home or business, it’s important to recognize these five signs of a bad roofing contractor you should avoid.
