Roofing Estimates Could Damage Your Roof

Did You Know Getting Roofing Estimates from Other Roofers Could Damage Your Roof?

Roofing estimates could damage roofUnless the roofing company is experienced and extremely careful during the roofing inspection process, getting a free roofing estimate can cause damage to your roof that you didn’t have previously. Homeowners need to be aware that some San Mateo and Santa Clara County roofing companies’ roofing estimate practices should be avoided.

Common free roofing estimate activities to look out for include:

  • Walking on your roof, which causes old, brittle shingles to crack and leak
  • Leaning ladders against gutters scratches and dents them
  • Pulling back flashing during a roofing inspection loosens it, creating leaks you didn’t have before
  • The risky potential for a lawsuit if the roofing company’s estimator falls off or injures himself while on your property for a free roofing estimate
