4 Roof Project Red Flags You Should Look Out For

Given how most home improvement projects, especially a roof replacement, can be costly and time-consuming, you’ll want to ensure you’re picking the right contractor for the job. But while most roofers are honest and hardworking, there are still those who would try to pull a fast one. RX. Renovation Xperts, premier expert in roof replacement and basement renovation, list some of the potential lies a shady contractor might tell you.

  1. “Our prices are cheaper.” This is probably one of the first things a shady roofer would hit you with. They’ll try to entice you with a low bid so you work with them, but then they’ll discover some issues that will need solving, continually driving the costs up. If a roofer offers you prices that seem too good to be true, be wary because they almost always are. Instead, work with a contractor who offers reasonable prices and won’t cut corners.
  2. “You won’t need to apply for a permit.” Permits are usually required for large roofing projects, such as roof replacement, so you’ll want to avoid roofers that will try to convince you otherwise. Non-compliance of this basic procedure can lead to forced removal of your roof, large fines and even litigation. You should turn to RX. Renovation Xperts, trusted home renovation company, instead. We are fully licensed, bonded and insured, plus we always acquire the necessary permits before starting any project for your protection.
  3. “We will need to completely tear off your roof.” Extreme weather can damage your roofing system, allowing leaks to form, but it won’t require a complete replacement just to solve them. You should keep this in mind when a roofer is trying to convince you to forgo repair work. Roof replacement serves only as the last resort for an old and dying system. If your existing roof is relatively new and in fair condition, it will likely just need professional repair to deal with any of its issues.
  4. “You don’t need to see our references.” Of course you do. References, along with online testimonials from previous clients, will help give you a clearer and more accurate idea on how your roofer does business. RX. Renovation Xperts, for example, is a Better Business Bureau Accredited Business with an A-plus rating.
