[guys-roofing-houses-for-really-cheap-aliens] 

Roofing is not an easy job and it is not a cheap job so never let someone fool you into believing this. A guy came to use last week after he had been scammed out for $3,000. Every roofing company he went to quoted the job at $6,000+. What he paid for and was scammed into was a temp fix up that lasted him 3 months and now he is dealing with leaking all over his house and huge damages.

I kind of don’t feel bad for people that get ripped off.  You know what they say about something that sounds too good to be true.  Suckers will always get ripped off in their pursuit of paying next to nothing for something.

You get what you pay for.  There are those who’re struggling financially and they’re trying to find a bargain.  Sometimes their bad fortune makes them overlook something even thought its too good to be true.

I am not saying this to sound mean but when you go in assuming a HUGE job everyone else is quoting double for and think nothing of the business charging 50% less.. Egg on your own face. As mentioned above, it is hard to feel sorry for people like this.

A home is a major investment.  How can you feel too sorry for people who don’t research before investing in a roof?  I do feel sorry for elderly people who are taken advantage of.  It does happen and the scam artists are a cruel breed all of their own.

We had a few people come to us last year with this issue. I felt sorry for them at first but then when they went into detail, I didn't. You have to research. I would never let some 2 bit company do any work on my house.

There are scammers everywhere you look in this world.  It really doesn’t matter what you’re talking about.  There will be scammers somewhere down the pipeline.

You have to be aware that people will pose as legit anything to get money or something else. What about that dude who posed as a doctor and got away with it for MONTHS? People can't be trusted anymore and it is a shame. Can't even trust your neighbor.

All the more reason to check into everything. My wife does a lot of online shopping but she wont just buy something from anymore (ebay/amazon or not). She does research. People need to do that with everything when they are looking to spend money.

I hear stuff like this on the news all the time. So and so thought they were getting a deal and all they got was a headache. You know how the news goes. Anyways, as others have mentioned - you'd have to be a moron to think roofing is that cheap.

It is the foremost job of home owners to do a detailed research of roofing company and go through their services thoroughly before availing their roofing services. They should cross-check their services and ask for feedback with the customer who has already availed their services.  It is really bad how unexperienced roofers decieve home owners and do a cheap quality of work. It is totally not acceptable.

I can understand on some level why people want to go the cheap route.  I’m in a financial situation where my wife and I are always trying to find ways to save money.  The other side of the coin is, cheaper can be more expensive in the long run.  Even a good cheap product may not last as long as one that’s a little more pricey.  Value is what people miss in the equation when trying to determine the real cost of something.
