Roofing replacement projects are relatively expensive, but when comfort and safety are your priority, a high-quality roof replacement is a sound investment for the future. Roofs are important to the overall structural integrity of your property, so focusing on keeping them sturdy and well-cared for will result in a long-lasting home with a comfortable indoor space. Although roofs are constantly exposed to the elements, day in and day out, there will come a time when the system will incur damage and need to be repaired or replaced. When this time arrives, taking the lowest bid might be an ill-conceived choice. What’s wrong with taking low roofing bids?
Cheap and unknown materials with insufficient reviews and data lead to suboptimal performance and more problems in the long run. The lower the price of the materials are (regardless of quality), the easier it is to post low roofing bids that attract inexperienced or uninformed homeowners. To be assured of your choice, always hire contractors that recommend the use of reputable building materials backed by real reviews and trusted quality.
Roof repair projects can consume a lot of time and demand strenuous manual labor on the part of contractors. This is why their pay should be commensurate to the quality of the work they give. But shady low bidders don’t respect those kinds of ethics, and they do not care about the well-being of homeowners. They bid low to get hired fast and make a quick buck, so bad workmanship is commonplace amongst them. They cut costs and manpower as the fewer people they bring along, and the cheaper the materials are, the bigger cuts they can get. And it’s also possible that they underbid on purpose and underestimate the number of labor hours needed to produce proper results on the project (causing a rushed project with bad quality).
The more a bid looks too good to be true, the higher the chance that there’s a bad catch attached to it. The lowest bidders generally cut corners to bait people with the low price. In this case, lower bids are at a higher risk of containing insufficient warranties. Bare minimum warranties are bad for any homeowner as they might not cover costs for faulty workmanship, tear-offs, disposal and other important stipulations. When it comes to the warranties, always make sure to read them carefully and always aim for proper coverage of all basic issues and problems.
