The Dangers of Hiring the Wrong Roofer

There are basically two types of roofing contractors in Canada – licensed contractors and unlicensed ones. By finding the right one for you and maintaining a good communication all throughout your roofing project, you can expect good results. Of course, you should be wary of the second type of roofer who might come by your house, offering you a too-good-to-be-true proposal with an incredibly quick completion period at an astoundingly low price. Trust us when we say that the reason that proposal sounds unbelievable is that it’s exactly that – something that you should not believe in.

Selecting the right roofing contractor for your project becomes an even bigger deal when you consider everything that can possibly go wrong with a roofing project:

No Proper Planning

A good roofer knows that the only way to prevent expensive change orders and delays is to have a solid roofing plan. Lack of planning can cost you too much. Poor design and planning will most probably result in unsatisfactory results, too.

Substandard Workmanship

When you hire a roofing contractor, you expect him to deliver the results that you want. The last thing you want is to be bothered by construction defects caused by sloppy workmanship. Those defects are not simply cosmetic issues. They can also lead to serious structural damage and other issues in your home. There are many roofers who offer low-ball prices but if their low rates mean they do a shoddy job, trust us, you better find yourself a reputable roofing company. Doing so might be pricier up front, but it will surely save you from much more costly repairs in the future.

Inferior Roofing Materials

Another way fly-by-night roofers play homeowners is by using materials that they claim to be “quality”. But what most homeowners do not know is that their quality often lies on the much lower end. Of course, using materials of inferior quality can only lead to disappointing and perhaps even dangerous results – the effects of which you’ll probably start noticing in just a matter of months.
