I’ve been dealing with roofing contractors and other contractors for quite some time. There’s a couple of things that most roofing contractors will never seem to admit to. Here’s some things that you won’t find roofing contractors ever saying to their clients.
Locate roofer-related organizations. There may be a roofers’ group or construction companies that can tell you what to look for in a roofing contractor, and perhaps recommend a few local names.
“It’s my fault.” The minute that your commercial roofing el paso admits blame, they’re going to have to pay to repair the problem. Even if it is their fault, they will often direct blame towards something else. Sometimes the something else, will be their workers or the roofing manufacturer.
Always get a few estimates by contractors before you begin any work. If you get the chance to meet a few people you will have a better understanding of the different roofing contracts. Many will offer different prices, warranty work and types of roofs to buy. This can assist you with making a confident choice.
You’re about to spend the money, so make sure your investment in your roof is well spent paying a company that is more than deserving of your hard earned cash.
So just how long do you figure it will take you to complete your roofing job anyway? A week? The fact is that even professional estimators have trouble getting their scheduling right, so you can count on doubling and even tripling your estimate. Meanwhile, a contractor can bring in a crew and have the job done in days.
Another thing that you want to look out for is if the roofing contractor seems to be pushing you into a lot of extras. You can always get more than one estimate, and most companies provide free estimates anyway. This will help you gage how serious it is to get a roof replacement. If you have a contractor tell you that they could repair a little flashing and a vent and you’d get some extra life out of the roof, it might save you some bucks. But don’t sacrifice the roof over your head to save some money!
