The facts!

1. You get what you pay for
We understand that everyone is on a budget, but if you hire the cheapest roofing contractor, it’s going to show up in the final quality of your roof. For instance, if they cut corners by not installing crucial components like drip edge and underlayment, it will ultimately lead to roof leaks and more stress for you.

Hiring a cheap contractor means you’ll get the cheapest components and labor available, setting your roof up for premature failure. That makes investing in quality from the beginning crucial anytime you need repairs or a full roof replacement.

2. Pay more money in the long run from poor workmanship
When you hire the cheapest roofing contractor, it shows in the finished quality of your roof. Getting the cheapest roof possible might seem like your only option, but a roof is an investment. The last thing you want is to pay more out of your pocket after spending thousands of dollars on a new roof. And that’s exactly what will happen when you hire a cheap roofing contractor.

3. Your roof won’t last long
When you hire a contractor for their low price, we can guarantee your roof’s life will not be what the contractor said it would be. The reason for this is you’ll get the cheapest materials and labor to install your roof. This will lead to improper roof installation and other problems, which always leads to premature roof failure. While problems might not arise right away from hiring a cheap roofing company, your roof will eventually have leaks.

4. No roof warranties available
When you get a new roof, you’ll have two warranties. You’ll have one from the contractor’s workmanship and one from the manufacturer on your roofing materials. However, you won’t qualify for the enhanced warranty when you hire a contractor for their low prices. Even if you do somehow qualify for this warranty, it’s highly likely it’ll be voided because of improper installation or inadequate attic ventilation.

You want to invest your money in a business that takes these things seriously and whose concern with the safety of your home matches your own.

At KY Roofing Ltd., we take the quality of our work and of our workers seriously. When we install a new roof or make any repairs on existing roofs, the work, the materials, and the guarantee are above and beyond expectations.
