Effective September 1st, 2019, homeowners will have an added layer of protection when it comes to preventing being scammed by less-than-reputable roofing companies. According to the Texas Insurance Commission, it is illegal for contractors to waive or absorb insurance deductibles, as well as to offer deductible-based rebates as a selling point to get your business. Contractors who offer to waive or absorb deductibles are more common than most homeowners might imagine and should serve as a huge red flag to anyone in need of roof repairs or full roofing system replacement.
Here are a few ways to ensure that you’re dealing with a reputable roofing company when having your roof replaced after storm damage or other major catastrophes.
- Be sure to get detailed estimates in-writing on official company letterhead
- Have evaluations done by several companies to gauge pricing consistency
- Always verify the company’s phone number, business details, and references
- Deal exclusively with roofers in your area and avoid door-to-door sales
- Never pay your entire invoice upfront and retain final payment until completion
- Notify the authorities in cases where roofers offer to waive insurance deductibles
- If the price for your new roof sounds too good to be true, it likely is.
