Like me, you may well have heard the horror stories about roofing rip offs where poor quality workmanship is easily hidden (until the rain or wind comes) or where a new roof is suggested when replacement of a few tiles would have done the job, or where the prices being charged are simply not justifiable.
Why are these stories so prevalent? I believe it's simply because many people may be like me and don't like heights, or the thought of climbing a ladder may worry you, so we cannot check and the whole job may be left to trusting that the person you employ, will do the job that necessary and do it well.
Well the good news is that in this article you will discover 3 of the lesser known but crucial steps to avoiding the stress and anxiety caused if you choose the wrong roofer in Leeds
Step one - Spend some time finding out everything you need to know about your roofing job so you can talk with authority - you can refer to an expert ,or read some books and articles and free information
Step two - Don't choose at random from the Yellow Pages because the biggest advert doesn't always mean the biggest reputation and equally the smallest can be a sign of problems too. You need more than just a telephone number before you make such a big decision. Bear in mind that many companies with a local telephone number may not even be local at all.
Step three is to arrange to get more than one opinion and if you are not sure that you are being told the whole story then ask another professional, also for a small fee you could ask for an independent report from a surveyor if you would like total peace of mind.
You can see that the major ways in which to protect yourself is to do some research first and get at least a second opinion
