How To Avoid Tales Of Roofing Contracts Gone Wrong

bryan roofer tales mini

Not every Bryan roofer has the same ability. Skills, experience and quality of workmanship vary considerably. You want to work with a time-tested and proven group that matches to the specific requirements of your job; not simply someone that puts you at ease and wins your confidence with their cheap prices.

Recent reports show that over 92% of homeowners go with a roof that is at least 14% above the cheapest offer. They definitely don’t want their roofs to be “training grounds” where chances are taken, corners are cut and quality is questionable. Truth be told, you won’t find the best rated charging dirt cheap for their services. They have a reputation to protect and they’ll definitely want to steer of compromise by: (a) using 100% genuine materials (b) paying their workers well so they’re motivated to give their best at work (c)fixing all small problems before they eventually grow to become uncontrollable calamities.

So, why save today and end up paying more later when you can pay 15% above those cheap offers and forget about all roofing problems once and for all?

Evangelina Depaz learned the hard way when she chose a roofer to do her roof on the basis of price. Too bad for her, only a week after the $11600 job was “completed” she says she noticed water flowing down the chimney inside and into her basement. She reckons “I didn’t have water in my basement before.” Depaz said that she later discovered that the company had tacked new roofing over three old layers and used inferior construction material. (Ref: Angie’s List: Roofing Rip-offs: Beware of scams, shoddy contractors).

Depaz says she paid up another $23000 for a roof to just to avoid losing her homeowners insurance. $23000 plus $11600 equals $34600. This lady ended up paying almost twice the cost she would have initially paid if she hired a fair-priced contractor.

Schulte Roofing has a very straight forward pricing policy. Our prices are flexible and vary depending on the amount of work that needs to be done on the roof. Before we give you the final quote, we first send one of our skilled techs to inspect your roof. Later, we’ll send you a comprehensive quote document detailing every repair job we intend to do on your roof and the price. Additionally, we will send you some two other quotes from our competitors so you can compare and make an independent choice.

Thanks to our many years in this industry, we have learned a couple of tricks that low-priced roofers use to fleece innocent homeowners of their hard earned money.

Use of inferior roofing materials

Quite a few use mill plywood instead of certified plywood which of course lowers the overall stability and quality of the roof. Schulte is keen to use plywood that meets the APA requirements.

Compromise on service

We don’t compromise on finish and preparation details. We take a step by step approach to every roofing project we receive. This ensures that there are no loose ends left by the time we leave the site.

Messy site

We always leave the site clean. Our technician will take time to walk around the compound to spot any lose debris including nails that could easily be left in your flower bed. We have large magnets that we use to capture all metallic debris.

Unqualified techs

All our technicians are duly certified by relevant local roofing authorities. We don’t hire until we do a thorough background check on the individual. All our techs are honest, hardworking and positive. Besides that, they are thoroughly trained to offer nothing but the best roofing services.
