To the general public, the roofing industry has a shady reputation. Over the years, numerous dishonest and illusive contractors have taken advantage of trusting clients. The result has often been an ineffective end-product, an overpriced project or a negative experience. We’ve all heard stories of having to hire a second contractor to repair the deficiencies of the previous contractor.
When listening to homeowners who approach us for help, we have heard countless horror stories about projects gone array. As contractors ourselves, we want this to stop tarnishing our trade and our reputation through association. Ultimately, our goal is to educate, guide and help homeowners with the protection of their building’s envelope, from the roof to the foundation. Therefore, we have decided to make a list of the most common “scams” to watch out for.
