Within the development business, there are good and dangerous contractors and the dangerous contractors appear to make life troublesome for the nice ones. Here is a narrative a few dangerous contractor who makes it onerous for the nice ones, whereas inflicting grief and stress to householders all around the nation.
Invoice the house owner, calls a roof restore contractor to repair his roof and the roof restore contractor tells him that it’s going to value him over $3000 to restore the roof however will solely value him $4000 to put in a brand new one.
Invoice does not have the cash and solely desires the roof repaired. His roof is simply 15 years previous and the unique roofer assured him that the roof would final at the very least 25 years. He solely has one leak over his lounge and it simply does not make sense to switch the roof that actually is not that previous.
The roofing contractor convinces him to switch the roof however does not inform him precisely how he’ll do it. The roofing contractor indicators the contract and inside a number of days the brand new roof shingles are right here and inside a few days after that the brand new roof was put in over the previous one.
The roofing contractor wins both manner. He won’t make as a lot cash putting in a brand new roof, however the $3000 to restore the previous one was outrageous. If the house owner would have had the roof repaired, the roofing contractor would have made a small fortune.
I can not stress it sufficient, to just be sure you get at the very least three bids from dependable contractors and if you cannot discover any dependable contractors, I might recommend that you simply begin asking round for dependable handyman or house restore folks.
Do not let one thing like this occur to you or any of your pals. Contractors like these give good contractors dangerous names and it is actually not truthful to the sincere and dependable contractors, merely making an attempt to make a residing within the development enterprise.
