Beware the Bad Roofers

Warning- Beware the Bad Roofers

Minnesota is a land of wonders and joy. It’s a state of smiles, waves, and kindness everywhere you go. However, it’s not perfect and there are people out there taking advantage of homeowners when it comes to home roof repairs.  Stinson Services, Inc. wants to warn you about the potential mistakes many homeowners make when choosing their roofing service for their home project.

Below is a video done by a professional roofing repairman. (Not a great speller though…haha)

As homeowners, our property is one of our biggest financial purchases in our lifetime. Therefore, it’s important to make sure that you’re putting your best foot forward when taking care of your home. The best way to make sure your home is in good hands is through research and commonsense.


Signs to look for when Picking a Roofing Crew


Lack of Recommendations and References-

Any quality Twin Cities Roofing Contractor will have an extensive list of referrals. Make sure to ask for a list of projects they’ve worked on in the past so you can drive by these homes to check the quality of the work. It’s never a bad idea to give a call to a past customer to see how the project went too! Your eyes and ears should help you determine if the roofing company is right for you.

Full Payment Before Job Completion-

Anyone looking for full payment before the job is complete is most likely not the right roofer for you. Most Minnesota roofing companies will ask for a down payment or deposit before the job starts. However, the full payment shouldn’t be made until after the job is fully inspected and approved. These are the types of roofing crews you should look for during your research.

Charging for a Quote

A professional Minneapolis roofer worth hiring for the job will provide you with a detailed estimate without charging you for it. Stinson Services offers a free consultation to help you determine who is right for your job.

Cheaper is not Better-

This may seem counter intuitive but cheaper is not always better in the game of your home. When it comes to your home it’s important to understand that your roof is the first line of defense from water damage and other hazardous elements. A poor performing roof can lead to structure and foundation problems down the line that will add even bigger expenses to your wallet. A quality roofer may cost more but they will also assure you that your home is safe from the elements and guarantee no future problems. So beware of the price that looks too good to be true…. Because it probably is.
