Roofing scams operate everywhere and you may encounter one when you least expect it. It is important to know how to identify these so-called roofing contractors and be less vulnerable to fraud.
The roof is a fundamental part of the building and the last thing you want is to have problems with it. The only thing that roofing scams offer are problems, and statistics reveal that many homeowners still fall victims to them, every year. Scammers are very crafty in their approach and execution.
As a thumb rule, you should reject any contractor that shows up at your door, promising you high quality services but asking you money up front and neglecting to offer warranties. Do not sign any agreement before taking the time to check the roofing contractor with the Better Business Bureau and other online resources able to offer customer reviews and ratings. Always look for licensed Colorado Springs commercial roofing contractors.
You should also avoid roofers that go door to door after a storm or during periods when the economy is in decline. Some of them offer free inspections only to gain access to your roof and cause intentional damage or claim to observe damage that is not actually there, only to take your money.
