How to Avoid Roofing Scams

Have you heard about the mysterious door-to-door roofing salesman? How about the disappearing down payment? There are many ways to fall victim to roofing scams, especially after a big storm.

Your roof is one of the single most important components of your home. No part plays a bigger role in keeping the elements out, so when a roof requires repair there’s little time to waste.

The desire to have a roof quickly replaced, and the fact that most people have little experience working with a roofing contractor, can set an unsuspecting homeowner up for a variety of scams.

Fraudulent roofing contractors prey on vulnerable homeowners and have become increasingly bold in their tactics. Be wary of “storm chaser” roofing companies that show up after bad weather; companies that use high-pressure tactics; and the “fluctuating bid.”

A new roof system is a big investment, and you should get a quality roof system at a fair price from a professional roofing contractor.
