Fraudsters exist in every industry and the roofing industry is no exception. Fortunately, understanding the signs of roofing scams will protect you from them. In today’s article, Arrow Painting, the leading commercial painting and roofing company in our local area, discusses some common roofing scams and explains how to avoid them.1. Unnecessary Roof Repairs
Some bad contractors scam homeowners by performing unnecessary roof repairs. This scam can be difficult to spot because a lot of roofing damage is actually not visible from a casual inspection. To avoid it, you will need to avoid being exposed to the kinds of contractors who will perform this scam in the first place. Stick to reputable and established local companies. These companies have a history in your community, so if they scam people, everyone would already know.
2. Incredibly Low Bid
Another common scam is a roofing contractor offering you an incredibly low quote for their services. Often, this quote is far lower than the competition. Don’t be fooled. Once you hire this company they will start increasing the price through inflated material costs and imaginary problems with your roof. As an experienced roofing and siding company, we recommend doing your research on the possible costs of your project before looking for contractors.
3. Poor Workmanship
Finally, some roofing contractors perform sub-standard work in order to offer low prices to customers and to get as many projects finished in as little time as possible. These contractors often come from out of state and often appear in neighborhoods that recently experienced a storm. They pressure homeowners into hiring them, perform shoddy work and then disappear before their poor work is discovered. Be wary of any contractors going door to door after a storm. Stick to established local companies instead.
