roofing contractorIt’s the time of year when there are storms, high winds, and colder weather. All the roofing vampires are out to make a quick buck and take advantage of your situation. Although you might be rushing to have your roof repaired or replaced after a storm, it is important to watch out for roofers who could make your already difficult situation worse. These tips will help you avoid scary roof contractors and all the potential problems that they can cause.

Drive-by/Fly-By-Night Roofers

After a major storm, these guys arrive in cities and towns to fix or replace roofs. They often “slap” roofs on quickly, without considering quality and durability, or compliance with warranties. After all, they don’t care about what happens to their roofs after the job is finished.  A local roofer is more reliable and will continue to be available for any future issues.

Why does it take so long?

Although some roofers may tell you that a roof can be done in a matter of hours, the actual project can drag on for days, weeks, or months while they wait for materials and workers to finish other roofs. Reputable roofers will stick to the time schedule that they have set for you and only do what is necessary to fix your roofing. Do not be afraid to ask your roofing contractor why they are taking longer than expected. If it isn’t clear, you can contact another contractor. Avoid contractors who complain about their scheduling or the time spent on the job.

Who will clean this mess up?

Roofers don’t care if McDonald’s wrappers are left on your roof or in your gutters. Without a second thought, they throw debris and shingles off your roof onto your lawn. After they finish, they tell you that someone will come to clean up the mess. True roofing companies will never do that and will respect your home by taking care of it as if it were their own.

The “Concrete Guarantee”

Many of these “roofers”, which offer a concrete guarantee, expire once they leave your concrete driveway. Although the materials may be covered by a warranty, it does not guarantee that they will work properly. Poor installation can also void any warranties, leaving you without recourse if something goes wrong. Greg Lilly Roofing & Restoration offers a 10-year warranty on both materials and workmanship. You don’t have to worry about your roof because we are here to help.
