In the past, we have discussed all the steps you can take to find and hire the right roofing contractor.
This time around, we’re going to take a different view. We’re going to look at the many mistakes that could lead you to hire the wrong person.
Here are three things that could push you down the wrong path:
- Making a decision on price alone. Yes, you want to pay a fair price for your new roof. However, this doesn’t mean you should shop on price alone. This may allow you to save money upfront, but it could cost you big time over the long run.
- Shopping for speed. You don’t want your roofing project to drag on for an extended period of time. At the same time, you don’t want a contractor who will rush through your job as quickly as possible. This can lead to a variety of mistakes, all of which will cause you headaches in the future.
- Neglecting to read reviews or contact references. Simply put, you should learn as much as possible about a roofing contractor before signing a contract. You can use the internet to read reviews. You should also ask the company to provide three (or more) references.
Now that you know the things to avoid when hiring a roofing contractor, you’re in better position to make an informed and confident decision when the time comes.
