When someone comes to your house and says they’re with a roofing company, are they scamming you? Why would a roofing company do that? They could legitimately want your business. They could be coming around because of recent storm damage. Think about it. Do you really read your ‘junk’ mail or advertising in the newspaper? Do you watch TV commercials or do you run to the fridge or Tivo through them? Personal contact sometimes is more a effective way to reach new customers. And if the person they send out is a roofer, instead of just a salesperson or advertising delivery firm, they can do an inspection on the spot.
Should you be wary? Of course. If you are aware of roof repair scams, you can prevent being a victim. Always get at least three quotes. This way you can be sure that the company with the in-person offer really is giving you a decent price, rather than an inflated price. Don’t pick the cheapest one either. They may be cutting costs or corners to make a decent profit while still being low priced to get the work.
Investigate the companies in the phone book, internet, and the Better Business Bureau. Ask friends and check websites for reviews of their work. Get an estimate and if possible, pay with your credit card. That way, if there are problems, you can dispute them. A roofing company may send someone to your door legitimately, but use these practices to prevent being scammed.
