Year after year, the home improvement industry ranks among the top five causes of consumer complaints to the Better Business Bureau. That’s because starting a contracting business is easy: a few fliers, a hammer and a truck and you’re in business. Delivering quality workmanship and reliable service – well, that’s not so easy. One of the best ways to avoid hiring a sub-standard contractor is to hire locally. While you may be tempted to hire an out-of-town handyman who advertises rock-bottom prices for his services, here are some of the reasons we believe it’s better to hire a local roofer in Richmond.
• Personalized attention. It’s true: cheaper usually isn’t better, especially when it comes to contracting. A local company is much more likely to offer you personalized attention and detailed workmanship because they’re not in a rush.
• Excellent pricing. Local roofing contractors can negotiate excellent deals on top products with local building suppliers and manufacturers. This means that you get quality materials, many of which can’t be obtained by the average Joe, at a cheaper price.
• Quality completion. While an out-of-town contractor may not worry about the occasional missed deadline or mediocre job, the local contractor is highly concerned with maintaining a good reputation. He knows that doing a job right the first time means word-of-mouth advertising and future business. For the same reason, any warranty issues with your BC roofing are much more likely to be followed up on in a prompt and thorough manner.
• Community spirit. When you hire local service professionals, the money stays in your town to contribute to local people, neighborhoods and infrastructure.
