How to Avoid Roofing Scams After Storm?
Severe storms can be terrifying and difficult to struggle through. Unfortunately, when the clouds have cleared and the water has evaporated, many property owners are still faced with the frustration of repairing the damage. Sadly, there are many unsavory individuals and businesses who will try to take advantage of dire situations so they can maximize profits without considering the satisfaction and safety of their clients. At CMR Construction, we work hard to ensure our commercial and residential roof repair, replacement and installation services are always reliable and of the highest quality. However, we have heard our fair share of horror stories and want to help you navigate through this difficult time without stress or worry. Are you suffering from a damaged roof, but are afraid of hiring the wrong company? Here are some tips on how you can avoid roofing scams following extreme weather.
Do They Have Enough Labor and Resources for the Job?
During a crisis, a community may be in desperate need of roof repairs. Some may take on more than they can handle, finding it difficult to turn away paying customers. Unfortunately, hiring an overwhelmed company could leave your property on the backburner, as they have fewer materials, equipment and staff than normal. Don’t be afraid to ask directly if they have the employees and resources needed to get the job done on an appropriate timeline.
Can They Give You a Reasonable Quote?
Each property is different, and not every roofing company is accustomed to installing or repairing tile, slate, metal and other high quality materials. In addition, business and investment property owners should be aware that a lot of roofing contractors aren’t experienced in commercial roofing methods. Make sure they can give you a reasonable quote for your unique needs.
Are They Properly Licensed and Insured?
It’s also extremely important to know if they are licensed and insured. Ask to see a copy of their most current certificate of insurance. If they don’t provide the right documentation, you could be putting your property at unnecessary risk.
Is Safety a Priority?
Even if the company is licensed and insured, work hazards can still arise. You might also want to consider their safety record. Ensure they regularly follow OSHA standards for their crews and don’t forget to ask how often they will be on site, this will ensure the work is performed in a safe and timely manner.
