While there are some repair projects you can comfortably tackle yourself, roof repair is almost always best left to experienced professionals, like those on our team at Tony’s Roofs. Our team has been working in the roofing industry for many years, and we have tackled countless roof repair projects in that time.
Due to our long experience in this industry, we also know how to assess contractors’ abilities, and we know what red flags to look out for in order to avoid hiring incompetent team members. In this article, we’ll go over a few of the most important red flags to be aware of when searching for roof repair companies.
- No Portfolio, No References – When interviewing roof repair companies, always ask to look at their portfolio of past work and a few client references for you to contact. Any reputable company will have plenty of photos of past projects to show off, and they will be happy to put you in touch with previous satisfied clients. If the company seems reluctant to provide this information for any reason, we suggest you move on.
- High-Pressure Sales Tactics – Our team, like all reputable roof repair companies, understand you need time to decide who to hire. Roof repairs represent a major expense, so it’s important to compare your options before making your final decision. If a company is using high-pressure tactics to scare you into hiring them right away, they are not someone you want to hire.
- Suspiciously Low Bids – A third red flag to be wary of when searching for roof repair companies is unrealistically low bids for your project. If the price seems too good to be true, it probably is. Our team is confident in our work, and we price our services to be competitive while still reflecting the value we provide.
