The Dangers of Hiring a Cheap Orlando Roofer

We have been told many times that we’re not the cheapest option for a roof replacement or roof repair. There are many reasons why we aren’t, and never will be, the cheapest Orlando roofer. Just because we’re not the cheapest doesn’t mean that we’re making more money than our competitors. There are actual dangers in using the cheapest contractor for anything.


We use only quality materials. That includes the underlayment, nails, and shingles themselves. As a GAF Master Elite® roofer, we’ve had countless roofs inspected by their team. Even if you don’t choose GAF shingles, we’ll still install your new roof with zinc coated nails, high grade synthetic underlayment, and name brand shingles. The dangers in hiring a roofing company who doesn’t use the best materials is failure of your roof. What seems cheaper up front, could end up costing you in the long run.


Many fly by night roofers in Orlando don’t carry proper insurance. Any contractor you hire to work on your home should have both liability and workman’s compensation insurance. Don’t hesitate to ask your contractor to see their insurance certificate and call the company listed to verify the policy is still active. Without those, you may be liable for injury to workers, your home, or others caused by the roof replacement. Orlando roofers who aren’t established, like the many storm chasers now invading Orlando, may use sub-contractors. Subs are rarely covered by any insurance.

In addition to injury liability, there is the matter of permitting. If your roofer isn’t licensed to do business in your area, they can’t pull a permit. If you’re having a roof replacement and it’s done without a permit, you’re liable for the fines associated with not having one and the permit itself.


A good roofing company has employees, not subcontractors. We mentioned the insurance liability regarding subcontractors, but bigger than that is the lack of training. Roofing companies who use subs can’t be assured of their training. That means your roof may or may not be installed by someone who knows the best and proper methods of installation.

Russ Noyes Roofing doesn’t use subcontractors. We will give you a date for your roof replacement when we have a team available who is trained on your roofing type and brand. We always use zinc coated nails to aid in prevention of wind damage from strong storms. In the end, you get what you pay for when you use a cheap Orlando roofer.
