It’s always best that you hire a roofing professional to get the repairs or replacements you need. Unfortunately, there are some contractors who are only reliable during negotiations. Once they’re hired, and you’ve signed the contract, they may begin to show signs that they may be not as reliable as you think they are. If this happens, you should take it as a sign that it’s time to release them from your employ. But how exactly can you tell if it’s time to fire your roofers?
Look for these signs:
They Fail to Follow Guidelines
When you’re getting a roofing project done, contractors need to follow local laws and Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) guidelines to keep themselves safe. As such, if your roofers refuse to take steps to protect themselves and their crew from unsafe work environments, don’t hesitate to part ways with them and find someone else instead.
They Show Unprofessional Behavior
If your roofing contractor or crew is behaving disrespectfully on the job, such as smoking, drinking and constantly showing up late, take it as a sign that it’s time to fire your roofer. This is because such behaviors are unprofessional, meaning that these aren’t the kind of people that you’ll want to trust with your roofing needs.
They Have Poor Communication Skills
Communication is important when you’re having a roofing project done as it allows you to communicate your wants, needs, questions and concerns regarding the project. With that in mind, it’s important that you and your contractor keep open lines of communication with one another. However, if your contractor is increasingly difficult to contact, take this as a sign that you need to find a new roofer for the job.
