How to Buy Roofing Shingles Online
- 1). There's always a risk of fraud when buying online, so make sure you're dealing with a reputable vendor. Once you find a site that sells the shingles you want at a good price, try Googling the name of the company and the word "scam." You can find out whether others have had problems with the vendor.
- 2). Look for companies that offer price matching and special discounts for buying online. In some cases, you might have to pay more for your shingles by ordering online, thanks to the shipping costs.
- 3). If you're not sure which material to use or have other questions, contact a home improvement store. The local vendor may even want your business enough to offer an even better deal, and most stores have websites where you can place your order.
- 4). Order all of your supplies from one vendor, at the same time. It's always a good idea to speak with a professional contractor or home improvement manager to ensure you have made the right choices. He also will be able to help calculate the amount of materials needed for the project.
