If there is one constant in this life, it is that for something positive, there must be something negative. The balance of Ying and Yang, some might maintain. Or, perhaps you are more versed in say, Murphy’s Law: If something can go wrong, it will go wrong.

While a portion of society may bristle at this idea of doom-and-gloom, others may view it as being realistic with the way things work in the world from time to time.

It is no different in the sphere of roofing and roofing contractors. For every good roofer, there is a bad one. We here at RocStout Roofing fancy ourselves as being one of the good guys. And as a show of well-founded faith, we would like to provide you with homeowner acumen when it comes to spotting the negativity within the roofing industry.

  • Don’t Be Afraid To Ask Questions When Someone Comes Knocking At Your Door

It would be a gross misrepresentation if we were to sit here and claim that all door-to-door salespeople are shady, no-good divenants. Grassroots advertising is still very much an effective way to get your brand out into the community where your business resides. However, the important factor when dealing with door-to-door sales is to ask questions. Not in a demanding or angry way; simply in an inquisitive and smart way. Why? Because many non-local roofing companies will move from community to community following the aftermath of storms, displaying predacity while they offer less than satisfactory workmanship. Make sure to inquire about the business’s location, history, etc.

  • Why Is It Taking So Long?

From the homeowners perspective and keeping in our theme of being proactive and asking questions, be congnascent to curb any attempt by a roofing company to extend your roof repairs out beyond what was agreed upon at the outset of the job. If your contractor continually pounds you with the same excuses over and over again as to why things are taking longer than expected, ask upfront, point-blank questions.

  • Not All Coverage Is Good Coverage

And guess what? Yep, our last tip is going to recommend that you ask questions of your roofing contractor! You go buy a cell phone, they offer you coverage. You go buy a TV, they offer you coverage. You buy a house, insurance. You drive a car, insurance. You get the idea… When you have a roof replaced or repaired, you most certainly want to make sure that your investment is covered for years to come. Just don’t get bamboozled by some half-pro roofing company that is claiming to be providing you with this  wonderful and unbelievable warranty. Read the fine print and ask, ask, ask questions.
