Unfortunately, many unscrupulous individuals show up on the scene after a major storm to take advantage of vulnerable homeowners. These individuals often try to pass themselves off as contractors, but all too often they are nothing more than an individual with a hammer, a ladder, and a pick-up truck but lack the experience, equipment or even motive to deliver what they were paid for. These people have been known to do inferior work or just take the money and run. The hapless homeowner often cannot find the worker who did the shoddy work, much less get the work completed to the proper standards.
Quality local roofing contractors, such as Evergreen Construction Solutions, have a vested interest in delivering a quality product. They are not here today and gone tomorrow. Their business is in Charlotte, and they serve Charlotte and the surrounding areas. Consequently, they must deliver superior services to stay in business. Word of mouth, good or bad, is a major factor in a businesses’ success.
Moreover, a local roofing contractor can offer a better product at a lower price because the overhead is lower. For example, if a contractor is hired from a distant area, the contractor will have to supply his crew with living quarters and a food allowance. This of course increases the contractor’s cost, which is passed on to you. You may argue that you hired the out of town contractor because he offered a lower price. If that is the case, look closely at what you are getting.
