At Professional Roofers, we like to believe we offer a great service for a great price, and we are willing to stand by that service no matter what. It’s one of the reasons we are so adamant about creating a fair and comprehensive contract for all our clients – so that they can hold us to the standards we pride ourselves in. However, we know that not every company is as transparent or honest as ours. Some roofers will do anything they can to “bait” a customer into working with them, then they will break their promises or find loopholes in their agreements, souring the good name of roofers everywhere.
With the holiday season now upon us, money has a way of disappearing quicker than any other time of the year. We at Professional Roofers know that the cost of hiring a roofing contractor can be daunting for any homeowner, particularly at this time of year, which is why we decided the next blog in our series on “choosing the right roofing contractor” would be about the importance of receiving several quotes or bids for the work you need completed. However, when you receive a roofing quote, it is not simply as cut and dry as opting for the cheapest contractor out there. A bid that is initially the cheapest might actually end up costing you the most in the long run if you don’t know what you are looking for. There are a lot of factors you need to consider in order to accurately and appropriately compare bids, and we’ve created this blog to help you sift through your options and hopefully allow you to make an informed decision on the company you inevitably choose to hire.
In our last blog we covered some of the most important interview questions you will want to ask any prospective roofing company you considering working with. If you haven’t read it, or the first blog in our series of how to choose the right roofer, we suggest you start there. Once you’re clear on the type of roofer you should hire and the interview questions you should ask them, the next step in the hiring process should be to contact a few of their references and get a real account of the services they provide. Any reputable contractor should be willing and able to provide you with several references of past clients who are willing to speak openly about the work they were afforded.
