How to Tell if You Are Being Overcharged for a New Roof Installation, Morgan, Ohio

Typically, a roof installation will cost at least $7,000; however, there are several factors to consider that can influence the final amount you pay a roofing company, like the material used and the size of your home. Since most of the roof installation projects executed by Graff Roofing in Okeana, OH, have been for standard ranch-style homes, they follow the industry standard of approximately $450 per square foot. 

Now that you know how much a roof installation will cost, keep an eye out for the following signs that a roofing contractor is trying to overcharge you:

  • They Refuse To Provide A Written Estimate: Without a written quote, roofing contractors can charge you whatever they want on a roof installation job. To make sure that you’re not getting taken advantage of, ask any potential company for an estimate in writing that includes any extra fees or costs you may incur, depending on the circumstances.
  • Roof InstallationThey’re Soliciting In Your Neighborhood: One of the oldest roofing scams is knocking on your door before or after a storm rolls through the Midwest. Make it your household’s unstated rule to not accept offers from a door-to-door roof salesman. Usually, these roofers aren’t legitimate and will end up ripping you off.
  • They’re Trying To Add On Special Features: A new roof installation is relatively simple to execute; it doesn’t require any bells and whistles.  If your contractor starts trying to sell you something extra, make sure you know what you’re paying for before signing off on anything.

New roof installations are necessary about every 15 to 20 years, so if you haven’t had an inspection recently, then schedule an appointment with Graff Roofing today.
