Transparency, accountability and trustworthiness are only some of the most important values that should be upheld throughout a roofing project – and practiced by your roofer. Unfortunately, not everything a contractor says is the truth.
Here are the biggest lies that unscrupulous roofers will try to have you believe.
Lie #1: We’ve Been in Business for More Than 50 years
There are roofing companies that would claim to have been in business for decades. However, what they’re really getting at is that the combined experience and number of years in business of their workforce amount to a long time. It’s one thing to be proud of the level of expertise of your team and an entirely different thing to lie about your years in business just to beef up your company profile.
Lie #2: Our Bid Is All-Inclusive
Don’t be too quick to believe this until you see a contract containing all the details of the project, including the total cost. Dishonest roofers will offer you a decent-priced bid, but jack up the costs once variables are changed.
Lie #3: We Have an Office
One of the first things you should check when hiring a roofing contractor is the physical address of their office. Having a brick and mortar headquarters can help you make sure that a roofer is an established part of the community. Any roofing company that lies about something as simple as their address will lie about pretty much everything else, including their credentials.
Reputable roofers will go to great lengths to prove that you have made the right decision when you chose to work with them. This is the type of contractor that homeowners deserve.
