What’s the Difference Between a Fly-By-Night vs. Professional Roofer?

When you have a roofing repair or replacement that needs to happen, you often have a choice of a few different options. Most homeowners will get several quotes, some of which will be lower than others. However, there are any number of other aspects that you should consider beyond simple cost. Here’s a look at why you should always use a professional roofer instead of a fly-by-night operation.

Product Materials

The materials that make up your roof and the way in which they are installed make up the two major factors behind the quality of your roofing job and how long it will last. But when you use fly-by-night operations, you’re not necessarily getting the best quality materials. Though they may talk about their personal experience with the material, they haven’t stuck around to see how it performs long-term. Make sure you’re getting quality materials so they’ll stand the test of time.

Labor Warranty

Will the fly-by-night operator actually come back and take care of a problem a few months down the road or even several years from now? A professional roofer is in the business for the long haul and will offer a warranty on their work. A fly-by-night operator? Probably not, even if you can get in touch with them once they’ve left the immediate area. Make sure the work that is done will be covered.


Why is price listed last? Because it should never be your first consideration in construction. A fly-by-night operator will offer prices that are too good to be true, because they almost always are too good to be true. Stick with a professional roofer to ensure that you receive a quality job on your residential roofing project.
