3 Common Lies Unprofessional Roofers Tell Customers

Always vet a roofing contractor before hiring one. This is to make sure the selected contractors are qualified for the job and your roof is installed correctly. Still, it wouldn’t hurt to learn some of the common lies unprofessional contractors tell their customers. 


1.All of Our Roofers Are Full-Time Employees 

In addition to checking a roofer’s qualifications, you should also check the size of the company. That’s because a small company won’t have the necessary manpower to complete a large home improvement project. To make up for the lack of full-time contractors, the company will have to hire subcontractors. The problem with hiring subcontractors is that it’s nearly impossible to maintain strict oversight over the quality of their work. 

2.Our Prices Are Cheaper

It might be tempting to hire the roofer with the lowest bid. However, if the price is too good to be true, then it probably is. To offer ridiculously low bids and estimates, a contractor will most likely have to cut corners when it comes to the quality of the materials used. Remember: while it’s important to stay within budget, you can’t get too preoccupied with the project costs. Focus instead on how you can maximize the returns on your investment.

3.Our Warranty Covers Everything 

A warranty’s coverage always has limits. For instance, labor warranties, as the name suggests, will only cover the labor. To learn what the limits of the warranty coverage are, ask the roofer to show you the warranty agreement. 

You shouldn’t worry too much about these lies or shady business practices if you did your research. A reputable roofing company relies on the community’s support, which is why these roofers would never resort to lying to their valued customers to make a quick profit.
