Frequently Asked Questions
SHOULD I LOOK FOR THE LOWEST PRICED ROOF FOR MY HOME?
Remember you roof protects all the contents of your home. One should not take the cheapest price because you may pay less now but you will pay more in the future if the work and materials are not installed properly.
ARE ALL ROOFS DIFFERENT?
All roofs are different and you should ask as many questions as you can think of!
SHOULD I GIVE THE CONTRACTOR A DOWN PAYMENT?
Yes but no more than 60%. If a contractor asks for more that 60% that contractor may have a money problem.
SHOULD YOU CHOOSE THE LOWEST BID OR PROPOSAL?
No, never go with the lowest. The contractor with the lowest bid usually missed something and will ask for more money during the job or the contractor is using substandard materials.
HOW MANY BIDS/PROPOSALS SHOULD YOU GET WHEN YOU ARE REPLACING YOUR ROOF?
You should get at least three bids/proposals. Three will give you a fair idea of the cost and also a chance to interact with three contractors.
