How to Handle Bad Roofing Jobs
If you are looking for a legitimate tile roofing contractor, it’s easy to find one. Just by simply keying in ‘tile roof companies near me’ in your search engine and you would be provided with a list of different roofing contractors within your area. Keep in mind that it’s not enough that you just look for ‘tile roof companies near me,' it would be better if you check for the feedback given by previous clients to find out if there are any red flags.
However, there may be times that even though you’ve done your best to investigate before hiring a contractor, you still receive faulty service.
There are many reasons for receiving bad roofing jobs for your tiled roof, but no matter what that reason might be, it should be attended to and straightened out as soon as possible.
First and foremost, review the contract you have with your roofing contractor. Check for workmanship warranties.
While others may immediately seek their lawyer’s help, it would also be wise if you try to talk to the roofing contractor who carried out the job first. If it’s a self-employed roof professional, get in touch with them directly. If it’s a roofing company, talk to the manager or supervisor company instead. You can ask the supervisor or manager to visit your property in person for them to get a first-hand look at the problem.
Once you talk to the roofing contractor, put the communication in writing. You have to make sure that you have everything documented properly just in case it comes to the point that the dispute needs to be taken to court.
Take pictures of the faults or flaws of the unsatisfactory roofing job. This would serve as proof, especially if the issue calls for court settlement.
Even when you want to do more investigation on the job done, refrain from poking around the portion where the defective repair or installation was done – you might just make the problem worse.
If the roofing company is connected to a trade association, you can get in touch with the trade association, too, and seek their help.
If the worst comes to the worst and you need to escalate matters to trial, compile all the proof you have gathered (correspondences, images of the defective roofing job, and so on).
