Unless there’s no other option, you should be strongly against hiring out-of-town roofers. Most of them are unable to finish their contracts or honor labor warranties. Here are some reasons why cheap, out-of-town roofers should be your last resort.
Poor Value for Money
The cheapest roofer is not always the best deal. The lowest bid often comes from a sub-par roofing company looking to scam you. That said, these unscrupulous groups might do a decent roofing job, but a manufacturer’s warranty won’t cover their work.
Unfamiliarity With Local Building Codes
Local roofers familiar with building codes ensure you won’t face penalties after installing your roof. Furthermore, local roofing work won’t be halted or reinstalled later to comply. You can expect out-of-town roofers to be unfamiliar with these codes, so reconsider hiring them.
Unsure About Local Climates
Another benefit of hiring a local roofer is their familiarity with local climate patterns. Roofers outside of town are familiar with their local climate only. A roofer who knows the local weather cycles will tell homeowners about the best roofing materials that can withstand it, last long and protect the property.
Problematic Insurance Coverage
All top-notch local roofers have comprehensive workers compensation insurance and liability insurance. Without them, you’ll be held liable if something goes wrong during the project. For example, a roofer without liability insurance can leave you to pay for the property damage they caused during a roof installation.
