The quarantine period has increased the activity of Littleton, CO homeowners in online marketplaces, and digital stores. In this light, we’ve received homeowners’ questions regarding the trustworthiness and quality of roofing materials from independent distributors. Our collective answer: they’re never trustworthy.

We’ve all had pleasant experiences purchasing items online from stationeries to gadgets and digital equipment. However, when it comes to roofing materials, digital marketplaces will lack the same integrity and trustworthiness that top-shelf roofing brands can provide.

For example, a specific brand of locally-designed and manufactured asphalt shingle roofs has undergone tests and certifications. In doing so, it can achieve a stellar 20-30 years of unparalleled lifespan and exceptional performance.

On the other hand, an online marketplace roofing material distributor can make the same claim. However, because you can’t consult roofers in their country, you can only trust reviews underneath the material. They might seem trustworthy at first, but we would like to remind everyone that reviews can be bought and sold online.

The best course of action is to message and ask the reviewer questions, if possible, privately. If not, you can only depend on blind faith and order the roofing material, which is cheaper than average when it comes to price. Once it arrives, there’s a high likelihood that the material is shoddy and poorly made, which leads to its short lifespan and poor performance.
