Whether you’re conducting a roof repair or replacement project, it’s important that you’re as thorough as possible in every step you need to take. Otherwise, you might waste time and money.
In this post, Affordable Roof Care discusses the four biggest mistakes to avoid when planning your roofing project.
Not Getting a Written Estimate – One of the biggest mistakes to avoid is failing to get a written estimate when you have contractor look over your property. Written estimates are proof of what the roofer said the cost of your roofing project will be. This document helps protect you from a sudden inflation in costs.
Prioritizing Price at the Expense of Quality – It’s always tempting to go with the lowest bidder. When it comes to your roof, however, quality is critical, and you get what you pay for. If someone is offering a quote that seems too good to be true, it probably is.
Being Unfamiliar With the Roofer – When looking for a roof installation contractor, always conduct thorough research. Make sure to check out each candidate’s online reviews and review their page on the Better Business Bureau.
Failing to Sign a Contract – The contract ensures the contractor’s legal obligation and commitment to you. Never allow work to begin on your house until the contract is fully executed. This document will protect you in case of misunderstandings down the line.
