Maintaining a client-contractor partnership can be quite tricky, especially when it comes to any roofing project. Many misconceptions about roofers remain rampant, but for the most part, these professionals are trustworthy, hard-working people aiming to provide outstanding customer service and high-quality results.
In this blog, local roofing contractor Progressive Remodeling & Roofing shares the three things roofers wish customers knew about them and the work that they do.
1. The Value of Trust
Reputable roofing contractors only work with people they trust. Having someone in your family with prior roofing experience work alongside them, no matter how noble the intention is, does a disservice to everyone involved. Sometimes, it is wise to just sit back and let the pros do their job.
2. Choice of Roofing Materials
Some homeowners insist on reusing old materials in roof repairs to reduce landfill waste and save on renovation costs. Roofers, however, would rather choose brand-new materials and components in their projects. There’s a big chance reused flashings and asphalt shingles will fail a few years after installation, leading to premature repairs or early replacement, which can cost you significantly.
3. Additional Work
Homeowners are within their right to be doubtful of contractors creating additional work in the middle of an ongoing project. Keep in mind, however, that roofers can find other compromised roofing materials and components that weren’t listed in the contract. This happens as they work on damaged areas of the roof, and since there’s no way of knowing the extent of the repair, expect the roofing agreement to see some changes and amendments.
