When you’re working on a residential roofing job for the first time, you might not know what you’re looking for from a roofing contractor. As such, your expectations from the job may not be that solid just yet. However, this shouldn’t mean that you should be satisfied with substandard services or workmanship.
Poor Work Quality
The number one reason homeowners sack their roofing contractors is because of poor workmanship. However, before you decide to end a contract with your roofer because of this issue, make sure that you document areas or have proof that the contractor did not perform the job according to the agreed upon standards. It’s important to have this documented from the very beginning. In turn, you’ll be able to prove that your contractor didn’t provide the kind of quality you expected. You can further supplement this claim by keeping receipts or a timeline of the project’s progress.
Violating the Contract
In all commercial or residential roofing jobs, the contract is the binding agreement between the contractor and the client that must be honored at all times. However, there are some situations where homeowners decide to terminate the contract, such as expenses and poor work quality. The amount of hassle you’ll run into when terminating it will depend on your agreement. Be sure to read the contract stipulations carefully so that you won’t get caught off guard by any hidden costs. Take notes of important details, such as material or service refunds. Your contractor should be clear and concise when answering all of your queries – if not, contact your attorney, and consult how the contract can be terminated.
Hire a Trusted Contractor
To avoid these kinds of headaches, be sure to trust a contractor that has been vetted by friends and family, or is known for outstanding workmanship and customer service. This way, you can be confident in approaching your roofing project, even if it’s your first time because you’ll know that your contractor is there to genuinely help you every step of the way.
