Hey, it’s Joe Blue, owner of Joe Blue’s Roofing. We’ve been roofing Miami homes for more than 15 years now and we’re proud to have established a great name in the community.
I know it can be a tricky process trying to find the right roofer. It can be a gamble trying to decide which one to choose. While some roofers are qualified, experienced, and honest, others can leave you with a bad experience and a faulty roof.
That’s why I’m here to provide some helpful advice on how to spot a bad roofer and how to fire them before it’s too late.
First things first, research the roofer. Check out online reviews, ask friends and family for recommendations, and ask for proof of past jobs completed. Also, make sure the roofer is licensed, insured, and can provide the necessary permits.
Now let’s talk about some common warning signs of a bad roofer.
Poor Installation: Poor installation is one of the most common signs of a bad roofer. If the installation job isn’t done correctly, your roof won’t last as long as it should. Make sure to inspect the installation job to make sure it was done properly. If it wasn’t, it’s time to find a new roofer.
Adding Work Outside of the Initial Contract: This is also a big red flag. If the roofer begins to add more work outside of the initial contract, you should question their motives. Make sure to go over the contract and make sure everything is included.
Lack of Licensing/Permits/Insurance: Before hiring a roofer, make sure they have the necessary licenses, permits, and insurance to carry out the job. If they don’t, find somebody else.
Unprofessional Behavior: If the roofer is unprofessional or disrespectful, you should consider finding a new one. Professionalism is key in any industry, and roofing is no exception.
Delays and Absences: If the roofer is constantly missing appointments or taking longer than expected, it’s a sign that they’re not taking their job seriously. Find somebody else who is willing to get the job done in a timely manner.
Failure to Follow Laws and Guidelines: Roofers must abide by certain laws and guidelines to ensure they are working safely and efficiently. If they are not following these laws and guidelines, they could be putting you and your home at risk.
So as you can see, there are many warning signs of a bad roofer. Doing your research, asking the right questions, and being aware of the warning signs can help you find the right roofer.
