Was your roof applied correctly and was it airtight?
Was your roof applied in a reasonable amount of time?
Was everything cleaned properly after completion?
The cheapest is not always the best
You will most likely get more than one estimate. Never pay for a budget. Most roofing companies will provide you with a free estimate. Once you get two or three estimates, you may notice a big difference in price. Your choice should be based more on quality than the cheapest price.
Your roof is your home’s covering and protects the exterior from rain, snow, and sleet. An improperly installed ceiling can allow moisture and water to enter your home causing interior damage that can be quite expensive to repair. Getting the job done right the first time is equivalent to protecting your home.
Choosing the cheapest roofing company generally means that you are choosing the lowest quality roofing products and installation. Experienced traders are not cheap and neither are quality roofs. As with most things, you get what you pay for.
Beware of roofing companies who want money up front
A quality roofing company will not ask you for a down payment on the roof. They have been in business long enough that they don’t need the money first. There are also many roofing scams that will take your money and be executed.
