For a roof to last decades, it needs a few things.
- An expert roof audit with the confidence to present you the facts.
- Quality tradesmanship to ensure a strong structural frame.
- Products you can trust to provide a sturdy, watertight roof.
But that’s not always what you get.
If you’re looking to save a dollar or two to fix your roof, there are a few things you should know. Here are all the essentials you miss out on with cut-price roofing.
Qualified builders that know how to build a roof that lasts.
It’s a tragedy there are so many under-qualified roofers out there. It’s not just that they endanger lives by cutting corners; they lack the fundamental training laid out by the QBCC. This is why we’re continuously called out to fix the problems left by these irresponsible contractors who aren’t even qualified to do their jobs.
There are many reasons why we demand that our roofers are qualified builders.
Quality builders ensure:
- Everything we do is good value.
- Our name stands above all others.
- That our workmanship is safe.
Customer Care staff that are ready to hear your story.
You should be able to pick up the phone and speak to a person who cares. If their website only has a mobile phone number, how are you ever going to reach them when you have a problem? It’s way too easy for them to dodge your calls.
Look for a company with a dedicated office or call centre, and who employs a team of staff so there is always someone there to take your call.
A quality project management team so everything goes off without a hitch.
Demand the best service for yourself. If you have questions, you should be able to ask. If plans need to change, there should be someone you can reach at all times. So choose a team with plenty of resources and experience. An experienced team that runs like a finely-tuned machine will save you money in the long run.
Trustworthy brands like Colorbond and Dulux that outlast and outperform.
Looking to save a buck? There’s some cheap roofing sheets on Gumtree. Not cheap enough? Maybe you could import some from China, or Pakistan. It’s just metal, right? She’ll be right.
Wrong. There are established brands that we trust. We’ve used them for many years, on many homes, and we know they’re the best. They are Colorbond steel, and Dulux roof paints. They invest millions and millions of dollars in their technology. It’s what ensures your home has the best protection money can buy.
We don’t use anything but quality brands, and neither should you.
Quotes for what you need, not just what they’re selling.
We’ve all the *that* salesperson. The one who’s only out for themselves. They’re easy to spot when you know what to look for. They don’t listen to you, or they make unrealistic claims. A common trick is to offer crazy big discounts of 50% (or more!), just to get you to sign today. Do you want to spend years paying off something you didn’t even need in the first place? I doubt it.
Warranties from an established company that’ll still be there when you need them.
Nobody would buy a family car if it were built in a shed. Yet everyday people buy a home’s most important element – the roof – from a dodgy bloke working from a van. It’s a risky move, especially when you know a roof protects your family, and everything your own.
Choose a company that you know will still be around tomorrow, next year, and many more after that.
