The Customer Scam
Unfortunately, bad people can show up on both sides of a roof deal. Sometimes, quality roofers deliver the materials, do a good job, finish the project and then cannot collect payment from the homeowner. The homeowner has the benefit of a finished roof, and the roofer has very little bargaining power to try to collect the payment that is owed. Solving the problem can end up costing the roofing company more money than it collects, and it is a lose-lose for a small business trying to do a good job.
