Roofing projects, particularly installations and replacements, are big investments. Because of this, price is usually a significant factor for many clients when deciding which roofer to hire. However, value is important too, and the contractor with the lowest bid may not provide the greatest value.
In this post, trusted residential and commercial roofer Done-Right Roofing & Sheet Metal Ltd. discusses why you should be extra cautious when you receive a low roofing bid.
In some cases, roofers are able to offer a low roofing bid simply because they plan on using cheap materials. To ensure that the contractor will be using quality products, review the written estimate. Their quote should include a breakdown of the costs as well as the details of the materials to be used, including their color, style, brand and quantity.
Lack of Roofing Experience
Needless to say, roof replacement should be done by qualified and experienced professionals. If a company is offering their services at a suspiciously low price, you might want to check how much experience they have.
Take note that it’s common for new roofing companies to offer lower bids in order to attract more clients. However, this does not necessarily mean you shouldn’t trust them. Many of these businesses are owned by experienced roofers who simply started their own companies, so that’s one thing you should consider as well.
Minimum Warranty Coverage
Roofing warranties provide different levels of coverage, and the basic ones tend to be cheaper. Make sure to review the terms and conditions before signing on so that you know exactly what to expect and what you’re paying for.
