Putting on a new roof is a major investment of time, money and your well-being. Most people feel the same way they do about working with contractors as they do about going to see a dentist–only if it’s an absolute must. We have this already present belief that it’s going to go badly, and if we can just minimize it, at least we can protect ourselves. Most people can’t even imagine a good experience with a contractor (or a dentist, for that matter).
Try it right now. Imagine that you meet with a contractor; he seems honest, has a lot of experience and doesn’t seem too eager to get the job. He has references available upon request, which he offers you. You decide to hire him, based on his rating with the Better Business Bureau and after checking up on customer feedback online, which is very positive.
He says he will start on Friday morning at 7am and that the job will be done by Sunday at noon. At ten minutes before 7am, he shows up at your house with his crew to begin–early! They work expeditiously, take a break, and go right back to work. At the end of the day, they put all the scraps in one neat pile out of the way of the public eye and out of your way.
The workers are all courteous and are not rushing to get the job done. On Sunday at 10am–early again!–the job is done. Before asking you for any money, he takes you to the roof and gives you a tour of your new roof and gives you an opportunity to ask him questions. After thirty minutes, you give him a check with a handshake and it’s done. You just had an amazingly easy experience with a contractor, and you have a wonderful new roof at a competitive price. Still pinching yourself? It’s not a dream; it’s actually possible.
So, first off you have to believe it’s possible to have a great experience with a contractor; otherwise, you are bound to bring in a bunch of negative feelings and expectations, which may just come true.
A new roof is a great value to your home, and it also can help you to sleep a little better at night. It is important to know that a bad roof can become very expensive–and quickly. Get an assessment of your roof so that you can have the peace of mind knowing what you need to do. It is too dangerous to take the chance that it will all work out.
