Price vs. Quality

As a homeowner, your roof is one of the most important components of your home. Not only does it protect the entire structure of your house, but it also protects everything and everyone in it. As you go through the process of obtaining quotes for services done to your roof, the lowest price is often the most appealing. But is this option worth it in the long run?

There will always be contractors that are willing to work for the least amount of money that they can in order to gain your business, but they will return the favour by giving you the least that they can when it comes to labor, material, attention to detail, quality and value. Unfortunately the old adage “you get what you pay for” holds true in this case. Although this option likely won’t create short-term problems, you may find yourself paying for expensive repairs further down the road in order to compensate for the lower level of quality and service you initially received. Potentially, this option might cost more money than if you had originally hired a more qualified contractor in the first place.

On the opposite end of the spectrum, top quality contractors that give your roof the higher level of care and attention that it deserves may cost a bit more initially, but it will pay off in the long run when your roof holds up to 30 years of weather without damage or leaks. Inspections and quality control are services that qualified contractors consider an integral part of every job, but this comes at an added expense. For contractors unwilling to raise their prices, this tends to be the first service that is removed from the scope of the job.

You need to ask yourself what it is that you want in a major construction project, and realize that excellent quality and service will come at a higher price. Top quality people offer better skills, service, and quality of work. Low prices come at the cost of supervision and inspections, and this often results in short cuts and lower levels of performance.
