. The important thing to remember is that the lowest price isn't always the best! Properly vetting a roofing company is important. As one of the top roofing companies in our local area we have encountered a number homes with roof related issues and leaks caused from "fly by night" roofing companies.
Essentially a "fly by night" roofing company is someone who lacks knowledge and ability in the roofing trade but poses as a professional. They exploit the fact that budgets are important and will always undercut competition. What you must keep in mind is that a very cheap roofing price is always too good to be true.

To conclude, price is everything and everyone has a budget for their needs. But their is a reasonable margin that will differentiate between reputable companies quotes. The most important aspect is TRUST YOUR GUT!
