Why Some Ottawa Companies Falsely Advertise Roof Repairs

Why Some Companies Advertise Roof Repairs But Have NO Intention Of Doing Them

At Firon Roofing, We Say We’ll Do Roof Repairs …And We ACTUALLY Do Them

It’s common for other roofing companies to advertise roof repairs but refuse to do them when the time comes.


1.) They make less money off repairs than they do with full roof replacements, or 2.) Multiple repair jobs require more time than one replacement project, taking them away from other potentially more lucrative replacement jobs.

Either way, they’re focused on one thing – profit.

But at Firon Roofing, our focus is on something more important to us – customer satisfaction. So, when we say we do repair jobs, and that’s what your roof needs, that’s what we do.

How The Roof Repair Scam Works

The setup is often the same – an Ottawa homeowner calls a roofing company after noticing damage on their roof. The contractor comes out to inspect the damage and reveals the damage is much worse than the homeowner anticipated. Instead of a roof repair, a full roof replacement is the only fix.

The homeowner falls to their knees in gratitude. How lucky they are to have found a roofing contractor who could spot and address the damage, saving the vulnerable family from total home destruction.

Sound familiar?

Well, here’s the reality of the situation – that roofing contractor “savior” never intended to conduct the roof repair. Instead, they slap the service on their website to entice unsuspecting homeowners and then use the homeowner’s unfortunate situation to pull a fast one.

So, no matter the size or scope of your roofing damage, they’ll claim a replacement is the ONLY remedy!

The Solution? An HONEST Roofer

Unfortunately, this common setup happens quite frequently in the Ottawa area. But thankfully, there is a solution – choosing an honest, trustworthy roofing contractor. And that’s exactly who you deserve to work with.

But how do you determine who’s honest and who isn’t?

Any roofer can say they’re honest, but a little proper research is necessary to weed out the bad ones from the good. So here are a few tips for finding a roofing contractor you can trust:

  • Read Online Reviews – Read what past customers say to learn how a particular contractor works and treats their customers. Online reviews are an excellent source and often reveal and stop a dishonest contractor in their tracks.
  • Browse Company Website – Look through their website to ensure your contractor ACTUALLY does repairs. Look for roof repair galleries with photographic evidence of the services they claim to offer.
  • Contact Contractor – Sometimes, body language and one-on-one communication are all you need to determine if a contractor is right for your roofing project. Feeling respected and listened to are good signs your search for the perfect contractor is headed in the right direction.
