What Should You Ask To Your Roofing Supplier In The Philippines?
Hiring a roofing supplier in the Philippines requires IMMENSE trust (and a lot of research!) on your end. Since it’s a lot of money you’re putting out, it’s only natural to want to get what you paid for.
But there are some suppliers that don’t hold up their end of the deal. And you should be aware of these schemes, whether big or small. To make the most out of your partnership with your roofing supplier, even something as simple as asking questions is a great way to save time and money— while ensuring that the roof supplier you’re dealing with is what you’re looking for.
Here are some of the things you should discuss with your roofing supplier:
1. Are you licensed to operate?
Bit of a heavy question during the first meeting, but definitely a necessity. You have to have the basics down before you talk business with anyone, and we’re talking ANYONE… even if they’re famous or if they’ve done your neighbor’s roof before. Ask for permits, documents, or anything that could prove their legitimacy… it’s better to be safe than sorry later on.
2. Legally insured? What does your insurance cover?
3. Do you have written estimates? Is it open to negotiation? Is there a commercial contract before the transaction?
Before signing any contract, make sure to read the fine print. If you’ve come to an agreement before drafting the contract, make sure that the written estimate is equivalent to what you will be charged for. Be sure to leave a paper trail for ALL transactions.
It’s okay to nitpick and be vigilant. Better ask questions first before engaging with roof tiles suppliers.
