Watch Out for Bad Roofing Advice

If you’re talking with potential roofing companies about constructing a new roof or repairing the one you have, it’s not uncommon to get some really bad roofing advice. Unfortunately, not all roofing companies are as reputable and honest as Pressure Point Roofing. Here are just a handful of things we’ve heard from our clients about what other roofing companies have told them.

5 Examples of Bad Roofing Advice:

  1. The damage is so bad it needs to be replaced immediately. Hearing your roof needs to be fully replaced immediately often creates panic and anxiety. Keeping your investment safe from nature’s elements is a priority, so this type of advice can cause homeowners to make rash decisions without fully analyzing the cost or options available. Instead, take a deep breath and get some more estimates. Often, there are other ways to repair a roof or at least more affordable options for roof replacement.
  2. This is a limited-time quote, and prices will increase soon. This is often a typical tactic of home show vendors, but roofing company salespeople can use “limited-time offers” to try to get you to make a quick decision before getting more information or bids. If you’re working with a reputable roofing company, you’re not going to be forced into making a fast decision to get a good deal on a roofing repair or replacement.
  3. Don’t worry, we don’t need a permit. Any contractor who tells you they can do the job faster or cheaper because they don’t need to get a permit is wrong. Professional roofers don’t cut corners. There are valid reasons you should get permits for roofing work, like making sure the roof was installed correctly. Besides, in most areas, performing roofing work without a permit is illegal construction and can lead to many problems for you down the road.
  4. We’ll handle the insurance claim for you. While this sounds like a really helpful offer, cutting you out of an insurance claim could hide costs, workarounds, or other unethical work. Instead, seek a roofing company that is familiar with insurance claims and is willing to provide you with all the necessary documentation you need to file it. You should always maintain control of the work being performed on your home.
  5. We guarantee you won’t find a better deal elsewhere. If that’s true, the roofing company shouldn’t be worried about giving you all the time you need to get other estimates or talk with their competitors. However, don’t let statements like those persuade you to make an ill-informed or rash decision.

I just wanna give a shout out to one of your guys who jumped out of vehicle to help me push my van out from 62 onto coker Butte this morning awesome job and thank you so much..

No hassles, no stress roofing contractor.

We've worked with a number of contractors over the years doing home improvement projects and I can say that, without question, working with Pressure Point was about as easy as it gets.

Everything about the project, from sales all the way to final inspection, went like clockwork and without a hitch.  They delivered more than they promised, on time and within budget.   We could not have been happier with their personnel, products and services.  Highly recommended!

I've changed my review from a 1 star to a 4 stars. Matt Stone got right on a pretty poor job done installing a skylight. He had his guys remove the skylight, move it, repair the roof and inside ceiling to its original state, paint it, repair some external trim that was damaged, and all within a few days after talking to him about the multiple problems. It was really an eyesore from the inside. I'd give a 5 star if this had been done well the first time. The skylight just didn't fit the space I first wanted it and was told it would. More communication about the potential problems might have allowed this to be done right the first time. But, Pressure Point Roofing gets 5 starts for making amends and correcting a pretty ugly problem, very fast! Thank you.

I needed someone to come out to take a look at a leaky roof. I contacted Pressure Point Roofing, Inc. and they came out the same day. They gave me a quote to fix the problem and I agreed to their terms. It was about 4PM and I knew they closed at 5PM but they stayed and fixed the leak at no additional cost. I was very happy and impressed. Would recommend them to anyone. Thank you Pressure Point Roofing for earning our families trust. Will definitely be doing business with you again.

Wouldn't be good if I didn't think the best of my own company right?!

Matt Stone

Excellent experience, prompt and professional estimate, showed up on schedule (actually a day early) and did a thorough and complete job. All personnel were professional,polite and great at their jobs. Would recommend to anyone.

I am so happy I chose Pressure Point to replace my 40-year-old roof.  The crew was professional, efficient, and answered all my questions, addressed the few concerns I raised, and made me feel comfortable, trusting them with such a big project.  I couldn't be happier with their work and the look of my new roof.
