Low Price Metal Roofs, Be Careful What You Wish For

Low Price Metal Roofs, Be Careful What You Wish For

How often are your decisions driven exclusively by price and nothing else? If the answer is always, you may want to consider your reasoning moving forward. A metal roof system is more than just a temporary cover for a commercial building or home. The quality of the material, the quality of the paint that covers that metal roof and the support that you get from the metal roofing manufacturer covering both the material and the paint finish is critical.

Remember the old Chinese proverb – Be careful what you wish for. Well, be careful because you might just get your wish!

How many times have you heard the story about the loyal, long standing customer leaving their current supplier in pursuit of a lower cost product? It happens all the time.

At first they’re thrilled because of all of the up-front money they believe they’re saving on the cheaper product. But wait, two, three and four years into their cost reduction experiment their customers begin to experience the effects of weather erosion – including peeling paint and rust…. on dozens, sometimes hundreds of roofs. The quality that they were used to getting, that they counted on, they were no longer getting with their new less expensive supplier. What a black eye!

How much do you think it cost them to save face, to fix the problems and salvage their reputation?

Well, they got what they wished for, what they paid for – a cheaper price and look what it cost them.

If you care about your business, your reputation and yes, your bottom line then make sure you know what you’re buying before you make the switch just to save a few bucks – it could cost you in the long run.
