3 Reasons to Be Wary of Low Roofing Bids


It’s not uncommon to get a significantly low bid when obtaining estimates from multiple contractors for a roof repair or replacement project. While this is hard to ignore, it doesn’t always indicate a good deal. Here Bone Dry Roofing – West, a trusted local roofing company, explains the reasons to be cautious about a low roofing bid.

Low Roofing Bids

Fewer chances of getting quality materials and workmanship. A low bid could mean that the contractor is offering materials and components that are of lesser quality. They may even be factoring unskilled labor into it. Inexperienced homeowners who don’t know any better and are less likely to review the details of the bid often fall prey to such scams from unscrupulous roofers. As such, you need to do your due diligence when obtaining estimates. Review and compare quotes, check the product specifications indicated in the estimate online and ask the contractor for a revised bid if you believe there’s an error in the quote.

Fitting the roofing project into your budget. This is another reason why some roofers offer low bids, but it’s simply not how reputable roofing contractors operate when planning a roof repair or replacement with their clients. Ideally, the consultation starts with a best-case design, working out options until they arrive at the solution that works best with the homeowner’s budget. If you have a limited budget, you can take advantage of various financing options that the contractor offers so you can jumpstart your project.

Substandard warranties. It’s also likely that the low roofing bid may come with the most basic warranty coverage, which isn’t what you should aim for when tackling a roof replacement project. Such an estimate may not include coverage for poor workmanship or wind or impact damage. To ensure you get the most out of your investment, it pays to get a new roof that’s covered by the most comprehensive warranties in the industry.

Working with Bone Dry Roofing was best decision I made to deal with a leak in my roof. They took their time to correctly determine where the leak was coming from and the best way to fix it! And, they did! Everyone I worked with from their staff was awesome! I will definitely use them again!!

Initially called this company for a quote because I saw their truck in Denver and the driver used their blinker. Compared to 2 other roofing companies their quote was in the middle and was later adjusted for less materials being used than expected. After signing the contract they were ready to start the next week on a garage roof and home roof repair (weather permitting). The team was respectful of our home & our neighbor’s. Throughout the entire process the communication was great. Highly recommend!
We are so happy with the service we received from Bone Dry Roofing! Nick came out quickly and did an inspection and a quick estimate for us! The repairs were done quickly! Fernando did an amazing job! He was very friendly. We have a very pitched roof and so I was very impressed with his bravery. ( would not catch me up there ever)<br /> <br /> Very happy customer and highly recommend!
