Roofing is important to any home as it provides the necessary protection. However, there are times when it encounters issues or sustains damage, requiring repair or replacement services. You may be able to find several roofers, but not everyone can be counted on for quality work.
To protect you from shady roofers, here are a few roofing scams you should know.
Storm chasers are roofing contractors who specifically target areas that have been recently affected by a storm. They are out-of-town roofers who charge exorbitant rates for different kinds of roofing services, and they interact with their potential victims through door-to-door services. They typically target vulnerable homeowners who have little to no experience handling roofing matters, and once their services are done, they will skip town without a trace. The best way to avoid them altogether is to hire local roofers with a good reputation.
Unlicensed roofing contractors are not recognized by the state or any local governing authorities. Different states have varying licensing requirements for roofing businesses to provide customers an assurance that the roofers’ services meet industry standards. Before hiring any roofer, you should always ask if the company is licensed.
Some shady contractors also hike up the rates of their services by claiming there is additional damage that wasn’t there before. This can happen when you agree to hire a roofer and sign a contract before they inspect your home. That said, it’s always ideal to have your roof inspected before signing any contract.
