A roof repair or replacement job is no joke and can cost tens of thousands of dollars depending on the scope of the work. Aside from the cost, a large home improvement project can potentially alter your lifestyle and daily routine for weeks or even months.
While most roofing jobs go smoothly and meet client expectations, there are some companies out there that are a pain to work with even for the most patient person. If your roofers are not conducting their work in a professional manner, you may want to let them go and look for a more reliable company.
Here are a few red flags that should tell you that it’s probably best to fire your contractor.
If your current roofer keeps finding excuses to add extra work that was not previously agreed upon, this could be an indicator that you are being taken for a ride. A disreputable roofer may offer a low bid initially to attract your business and then keep adding “extras” to drive your costs and the company’s profits up.
If the workers you hired for your roofing project are behaving disrespectfully or even dangerously towards you and your family, then you should fire them immediately. A roofing professional should conduct themselves in the proper and respectful way at all times. Anything less than that then you should not hesitate to give them the boot.
Habitual Delays or Absences
A roofer who constantly shows up late or, worse, does not show up at all on some days cannot be trusted to do a good job. You should not have to deal with tardiness or unexcused absences which can greatly add to the cost of your project. If your contractors have a habit of not being around when they are expected, then this should be enough grounds to show them the door.
Starting over with a new roofer when a project is already underway can add thousands of dollars to an already costly project.
