Finding a reliable contractor is among the first steps toward a successful roof replacement project. An effective way to find reputable professionals is to obtain multiple quotes from different companies. If a contractor offers a bid that is too good to be true, you should think twice about hiring them.
Here’s why you should be careful of contractors who offer low bids.
The Contractor May Be Inexperienced
A roofer with less experience may offer lower bids to get more customers to hire them. The lesser the experience of a contractor, the higher the chances of mistakes during installation. Keep in mind that installation mistakes can lead to early roof deterioration. On the other hand, a roof that’s installed correctly and maintained regularly lasts longer.
They May Be Using Low-Quality Materials
The longevity and durability of your roof hugely depend on the quality of material your roofing contractor uses. A roofing company that offers a low quote may be using inferior products. You don’t want to work with a contractor who cuts corners by using poor-quality materials. At Masters Roofing, we only use superior quality materials from leading manufacturers in all our projects.
They May Have Intentionally Underestimated the Work
A common reason a contractor can offer you a low roofing quote is that they have intentionally underestimated the work required for your project. Labor costs make up a significant amount of your project costs, meaning underbidding can lower the estimate. Low labor costs usually result in poor workmanship.
