Let the Roofers Bid on Your Home
Getting a new roof is expensive and not the way most people look forward to spending their money. However, it is important to the maintenance of your home, particularly if you have many leaks that destroy the integrity of the house and the interior. While you might be in a hurry, finding leaks everywhere, don’t rush into hiring a roofer before you know the actual price. You should always have comparative bids from Infinity Home Improvement for any major work you have on your home, ask for referrals and hire a roofer that’s both licensed and insured.
No matter how badly your roof is leaking, most roofers, even if they’re swamped with other work, if you hire them for the main job, many will patch the area to prevent further damage until they have time to do your work. When you call a roofer requesting a bid, many are glad to get you the bid immediately, particularly if they’re seasoned veterans of roofing with plenty of experience under their belts. They know it’s important to let people know the price so they can compare rates and plan for the expense in their budget. Some with larger crews may even be ready to take on the job immediately, saving the need for temporary work.
Roofers who refuse to provide an estimate have a huge advantage over the homeowner. They can tell you any price when they finish and you can’t dispute it. After all, they’ve already completed the work. While some of these individuals are fair, in many cases, you’ll find they’re far higher in price than those who bid for their work, knowing there’s a potential for a lower competitive bid. Even when you do secure a bid, make certain you have the same quality of materials quoted in each bid. Discuss the bid with each contractor and ask questions. If necessary, look up a review on the type of shingle used or ask at a local home repair superstore or hardware about the quality of the shingle. Try to secure all apples-to-apples bids, meaning you always use the same type of shingle with the same life expectancy.
