When obtaining bids for roofing work, you will likely deal with countless contractors. You’ll come across roofers of all varieties from veterans, new businesses, expensive, affordable, average, and even scammers. Avoiding a Cincinnati roofing contractor who is obviously displaying red flags will allow you to hire someone who will get the job done right at a price you can afford. Here are some common warning signs to be aware of concerning disreputable or untrustworthy contractors.
Asks for Upfront Payment
It’s not unusual for a Cincinnati roofing contractor to ask for partial payments. These payments may go to ordering materials and paying labor. However, no contractor should ask for the entire project payment upfront – before any work is done. They may take the payment and never show up to complete the job.
