When it comes to paying for any job, most people would like to get the lowest price possible. Roofing is no exception, and many homeowners who need to have their roof repaired or replaced simply seek to hire contractors or roofing companies who offer the lowest rates.
The problem with cheap
While going with the cheapest roofing companies may seem like a good idea, it can actually result in you spending more money as a result of poor workmanship & the use of sub-standard materials. This is because cheap contractors and roofing companies often work slowly, use cheap materials, do not pay serious attention to detail, and do not make an effort to provide the best result overall. The reason is because they simply don’t have the incentive to because they are being paid lower wages.
So, you may think that you are saving money hiring the cheapest contractor possible. But when the job is done, and your roof develops a leak a week later, you may have second thoughts. This is especially true if the roof leak cause secondary damage by getting water onto your paintings, electronics, carpets, furniture, etc. Secondary costs can add up quickly. There is an old saying, “you get what you pay for.” So, if you pay for low quality/poor labor, you will most likely get low quality and poor results. The roof of your home protects everything important. A good investment in your roof will pay dividends.
To avoid getting a poor result for your roofing job, you should simply hire a local, reputable roofing company that is high quality. High quality tends to cost more. But the reason why they cost more is because they do what is necessary to get the job done properly. This can mean having a supervisor on sight to oversee and manage the whole project correctly – something that independent contracts usually never have. It can also mean having inspectors inspect the roof upon completion of the project to double check that every single issue was resolved.
There is simply no substitute for great quality work when it comes to your roof. Roofs are too important to risk with poor labor. If you want to ensure that the job is done correctly, that good quality materials are used, and that your problem will actually be fixed, then you need to hire a high quality roofing company. Otherwise, you are just rolling the dice.

“It’s unwise to pay too much, but it’s worse to pay too little. When you pay too much, you lose a little money – that’s all. Whe you pay too little, you sometimes lose everything, because the thing you bought was incapable of doing the thing it was bought to do. The common law of business balance prohibits paying a little and getting a lot – it can’t be done. If you seal with the lowest bidder, it is well to add something for the risk you run, and if you do that you will have enough to pay for something better.”
