2 Big Misconceptions About Roofing Contractors

Before you choose a contractor to handle your Lake of the Ozarks roofing needs, it's important you do your research. In today's blog, your Lake of the Ozarks roofing company addresses two of the biggest misconceptions about roofing contractors. This knowledge will help you to make an informed decision and rule out some contractors from the beginning.

1. Choosing the Contractor with the Lowest Price Saves You Money. 

When it comes to making purchases, price is always top of mind for people. It's important to realize though, that with a lower price often comes a lower quality. Applying this principle when hiring a roofing contractor is important. Be sure to ask for estimates from multiple contractors. If an estimate comes in lower than the others, you need to ask yourself what's being left out or what shortcuts are being taken to make this quote lower than the others. While the upfront costs may be cheaper to choose contractor A over contractor B, the quality of the work provided could lead to premature repairs or replacement of your roof, costing you more in the long run. While you don't necessarily have to pay top dollar for a quality roof, you should base your decision on more than just which contractor has the best price. Remember, you get what you pay for. Common scams revolving around price are not including cleanup costs in the estimate, charging extra for materials that were implied to be included in the initial quote, or providing a low estimate to get in the door and then increase the price with change orders. A low-ball quote should definitely raise a red flag and cause you to investigate further.

2. A Contractor with Years of Experience Will Do the Best Work. 

While experience is plus, you can't assume someone does good work just because they have been in the industry for years. You never if that particular roofer has been producing poor quality work for all those years. Twenty years is plenty of time to create bad habits. In addition to asking how much experience a roofing contractor at the Lake of the Ozarks has, it's important that you ask for references and follow up on those references. That's the best way to ensure that your "experienced roofer" provides quality work to customers. A contractor that's not willing to offer up references is another red flag.
