How To Spot A Rogue Trader

Posted on Jul 21, 2016 by David Jones

If you’ve got roofing problems and need to call out a professional tradesman, it’s important that you do your research so you know you’ve picked a reputable company that will fix the problem and not make it worse.

There are tell-tale signs you can look out for that will help ensure you’ve chosen the right kind of company to work with. For example, keep an eye out for anyone offering very cheap estimates or quotes. This suggests that they either lack the right amount of experience to give you an accurate quote, or they could be a cowboy builder.

You would also be wise to steer clear of anyone not willing to give you your quote in writing as this could be a signal that they have no intention of sticking to the quote. Ask for references so you can check that their past work has been up to scratch and always ask for their address and landline phone number so you can check credentials.

If anyone asks you for money up front, it would be best not to work with them. Reliable builders will never ask you to do this – they should have enough capital in order to cover the costs themselves before you pay. You should also make sure that you don’t pay them in full until you’re satisfied that the work has been done properly.

If you’ve discovered that you have a leak or there’s something else wrong with your roof, get in touch with us here at Central Roofers today to see how we can help you resolve the situation quickly, easily and with minimal fuss.
