Planning your roof replacement project enables you to be prepared for the expenses and inconveniences that usually come with the work. To help ensure a positive experience and avoid additional, unnecessary expenses, below are some mistakes that you should make sure don’t happen.
Forgetting to Sign a Contract
A contract signed by you and your contractor essentially cements your legal relationship between each other. So, in the event that your contractors deliver subpar quality or commit an error during the installation or repair of your roofing, they have the legal obligation to correct those mistakes. A written and signed agreement will also help prevent any misunderstandings or ambiguities about the terms or scope of work.
Failing to Ask for a Written Quotation
Trustworthy roofers will offer written estimates for your project, complete with details of the materials and the services to be provided. This ensures that you have a good understanding of what the roofing expenses entail. Furthermore, a written quote helps you avoid being scammed by unscrupulous contractors, who don’t give written quotations so that they can jack up prices as they carry out the job.
Going With the Lowest Quote Without Checking the Details
A cheap quote will naturally sound like a good deal, but make sure not to go with the lowest bid without checking if the prices are realistic. Take a look at the details of the quote as well. Sometimes, a low price could mean that lower-quality materials are going to be used or the services to be provided will be incomplete. There might also be hidden fees that could be added to your bill later on.
