Before you hire a roofer for summer storms roof repair, get a free estimate. You’ll benefit in three major ways from this wise choice.
Save Money
Asking for a free estimate is a very simple process. You simply contact the roofing company and request a consultation. Ask questions about the extent of the repairs that are needed. Remember that, at this stage, you’re in negotiations. Don’t be afraid to ask for a lower final price, or a little more work for the money. Most roofers will guarantee the estimate price for a set period of time. Be sure to act accordingly to avoid surprise costs blowing your budget.
Avoid Scams
Reputable roofers will be licensed and insured, with a highly visible presence. They’ll behave in a professional, polite manner and arrive in well-maintained vehicles. They will, very often, belong the local Better Business Bureau and local Chamber of Commerce. When asked for references, they’ll happily refer you to happy past customers. A scammer, on the other hand, won’t want to bother with any of these formalities. Be insistent that the roofer shows you proper paperwork and a guaranteed estimate, if they decline, find someone else.
Guaranteed Satisfaction
Once you receive the free estimate, and you decide it’s time to act, the roofer is under contract to do the specified work. It also sets the time-frame for the work to be completed. This can take days, or weeks, depending on the extent of the damage. What’s more, it guarantees the workmanship, and/or materials, for a specific amount of time. This could be anywhere from a few years to a couple decades, depending upon the roof, materials and other factors.
