When in need of a new roof, many homeowners find themselves in the middle of a research project as they hunt down the most qualified Hanson roofer for the job. It’s important to vet as many roofers as you can, getting multiple quotes before you settle on one who will perform your roof installation.
Here’s why you should always secure a few quotes before making a decision.
1. Replacement vs. Repair
When you call a few contractors who come out to inspect your roof, you will get a wider range of opinions on whether you need a complete roof replacement or if you can get away with a repair for now. There’s a big difference in cost in regards to replacement vs. repair. Some contractors will tell you that you need a replacement just to get your business, while others will be honest about only needing a repair.
When you call for a few different quotes, you can compare what they say and come up with the best course of action for you and your budget. Second and third opinions can save you a lot of money!
2. Compare Prices
The biggest benefit to getting multiple quotes on your metal or asphalt roofing system is the ability to compare prices. You will get a wide range of prices from different roofers, as not all roofers are created equal. You may get a low-ball offer that may seem too good to be true. You may also get a high-end quote that seems outrageous. And you may get a middle of the road quote that seems reasonable and more in line with your budget.
Taking your time to compare each quote apples to apples will allow you to make a more educated decision.
3. Contractor Match
Finally, speaking with a variety of roofers will help you decide on which professional you want to do business with. One roofer may be unprofessional and show up late, while another seems eager enough but is brand new to the business and doesn’t have the experience you’re looking for. The third contractor may have the perfect personality that gels with yours, with commensurate experience and a professional demeanor.
Give yourself some options, meet them all, and then make a decision. If you skip this step, you could end up hiring someone that isn’t a good fit. You don’t want to regret your decision, as hiring a roofing contractor in Hanson shouldn’t be taken lightly.
