There you are, thinking about how you need to find a reputable roofing contractor. Like magic, one knocks on your door, ready to give a quote.
Unfortunately, those that go door-to-door often scam homeowners one way or another. Either they don’t have licensing, and insurance or they aren’t even roofers.
Others still try and use high-pressure sales tactics, desperate for a fast cash down payment. Worst yet, they may not even come back, having received several hundred dollars from you.
Finally, beware of contractors that only appear directly after a storm. They are the roofing equivalent of “ambulance chasers,” and aren’t worth your time.
