El Paso roofer warns public over roofing scams

El Paso News

After the high winds the Borderland saw last week, your roof may have suffered some damage.

Experts at “Done Right” roofing in Central El Paso told KTSM it’s important to check up on any roof damage right away, but be extremely aware of who you choose to fix it.

“A good way to avoid yourself being put in a bad situation is first of all don’t pay anybody upfront. Any roofing contract that’s been in business can definitely do the work and get paid upon completion of the work,” Owner of Done Right Manuel Ramirez said, “Don’t every pay your contractor upfront, because a lot of times they unfortunately leave and you’ll never see them again.”

Ramirez also shared that it’s important to make sure the roofing contractor has a physical location and/or office you can stop by at. Usually offices are open during regular work hours.

It’s also important to note if your contractor is local, licensed, bonded, and if possible registered with the Better Business Bureau. 

Ramirez said it can hold businesses more accountable.

Done Right roofing does free inspections and assessments if you do have damage, then give the quote depending on the damage done.
