Many homeowners let their misconceptions keep them from choosing the best roofer for repairs or replacement. To be fair, most homeowners will go through life without ever needing to replace their roof. When it comes to hiring plumbers, painters, and carpenters, most homeowners are familiar, if not comfortable, with the process. Roof replacement can be one of the largest investments made in a home, so when things go wrong, the word and the misinformation can spread like a wildfire. Here, we will attempt to dispel the misconceptions in an effort to help the homeowner find the best Charlotte roofing companies.
Avoid the cheapest bid
The first bit of misinformation that most homeowners carry is that they should collect the bids and select the lowest price. This stems from “commodity thinking.” Roofing materials are designed to withstand severe exposure to the elements. So the quality can vary greatly from products designed to last 10 years versus products that are designed to last 20 years. “Commodity thinking” looks at the cost per square foot and bases the choice on the lowest bid. Commodity thinking is ok for buying nails by the pound, but it will most certainly lead you down the wrong path to finding the best roofer. Evidence has shown that the best roofers are not the cheapest. Contractors who offer work for a substantially lower price must use cut-rate materials, cut corners, or find a way to cut cost on labor. No homeowner wants a cut-rate job for their once in a lifetime investment.
Family owned roofing companies
Another misconception that many people hold is to avoid family owned roofing companies. The perception is that family owned companies might not hire the most competent staff, and there is no resolution if you have a complaint. Actually, the roofing business is one of the most competitive segments in the construction industry. Family owned companies that have been in business for decades did not become successful by offering substandard work and service. Family owned companies have a reputation and livelihood to protect. In this regard, family owned businesses are the ideal operation for the roofing business. They are an integral part of the local community, and they know the needs of their customers.
