WHY YOU SHOULDN’T HIRE A ROOFING CONTRACTOR FOR YOUR BUILDING
Can You Pay the Price?
The most obvious and most commonly cited problem with outsourcing your roofing needs to a contractor is cost. Building owners don’t want to pay for anything they don’t absolutely have to, so the roofing budget often gets cut and they do the roofing themselves or in-house. This can be a great way to save some money, but can also add a stressful component into your life.
If you simply cannot afford to put professional roof maintenance in the budget, then this is just something you have to do; you have to take care of your roofing yourself. However, if you’ve got room in the budget, then you’ve really got to do some thinking and weigh the pros and cons.
Do You Want to Know?
Many building owners want to know the details of anything and everything that takes place in and on their building, including any roofing issues. Other building owners simply want their stuff to get done, and if it does, they don’t care to know the details. As long as the roof is fixed, as long as the warehouse is cleaned, as long as the overhead doors are working, they don’t care who did it. Just keep projects under budget and get them done and these building owners are happy.
So, the question you need to answer is which type of building owner are you? Do you care about the specific details of what takes place on your roof? Do you need to know how everything gets done? Or can you tell someone to make sure something gets done, and then stay uninvolved as long as things are getting done? Depending on your answer, you may or may not want to hire a professional to handle your roofing.
The price tag that comes along with hiring a professional is a major con, as well as not knowing what is going on with your roof. Not knowing can be a big time con, but if that doesn’t bother you, that’s not as big of a deal.
