#3- Don’t take the lowest bid
Many customers like to get several bids for their roofing project. This is a good idea, but it can be hard to compare the estimates “apples to apples”. What kind of materials is each contractor bidding with? Are they bidding with the highest quality or are they cutting corners? Are they bidding to use all new flashings or are they going to reuse the old? What about the installation methods? This is why the more detailed the roof estimate is the better, so you can really understand what you are getting. A good rule of thumb is to never accept the lowest bid. There is a reason why that company is cheaper than anyone else! They could be cutting corners with the materials, they could be not installing the roof details to code or industry standards, or could be planning to rush through the job and provide shoddy workmanship with seasonal or temporary employees. CC&L Roofing Company may not be the cheapest estimate you receive, but we have the experience to do the job right, we use quality materials and industry standard or higher installation methods, we stand behind our work with a new roof workmanship warranty for 10 years, we will be here to stand behind that warranty, and we have long term employees and never hire seasonal or temporary employees.
