Scams can happen in any industry at any given time. In the roofing business, while most of the companies you’ll meet are trustworthy and reliable, there are also a number of ways that you can be taken advantage of. Make sure that you are aware of such schemes so that you can identify them easily and avoid being a victim.
DryTech Roofing LLC, one of the area’s top roofing companies, shares more information about the most common roofing scams and how to avoid them.
Storm chasers are roofers who go from one place to another, following bad weather events and looking for damaged roofs that they can work on. They typically go door-to-door to offer their services to unsuspecting homeowners, claiming that their roofs appear to be damaged and in need of repair or replacement. Oftentimes they try to entice customers with a special discount. Do not fall for their claims or any promos they offer. Before enlisting their services, research the company and make sure they are a legitimate business that can actually deliver quality workmanship.
Overcharging or Undercharging
Roofing projects usually cost a significant amount. That’s why it can sometimes be tricky to determine whether an amount is reasonable, too expensive or too cheap. To give you an idea of how much your project would cost on average, you might want to compare estimates from four to five different contractors.
Sometimes it can also be hard to determine when a contractor is being thorough and when they are already doing unnecessary work just so they could jack up your total bill. One way that you can avoid this is to ask several questions about the project. You may also consult with other contractors to know if the job being suggested is really needed.
