When dealing with something as important to your house as the roof, it is important that you choose the right roofing services company to work with. This industry, however, is crowded with unreliable companies. So many, in fact, that complaints against contractors have risen a whopping 758%. Keeping this in mind, we knew that we had to be better - and that meant being different.
There are ten ways that our business practices differ from other companies in the Fort Myers area. Let’s take a closer look at some of them.
No Deposit Required
One of the biggest red flags that is often seen in our industry is the requirement of a deposit before any of the work even begins. If you see a company doing this, it usually means they don’t have the capital necessary to purchase the materials or the labor for your job until you pay for it. Running a business like that is never a good idea. There is too much room for error, and it could lead to the company walking away and leaving the job half-finished because they couldn’t afford to finish it.
We do not need your money to prepare for your roof installation or repair. We only ask for a deposit of 50% when we arrive to start the job, and expect the rest of the payment upon completion. This shows we have mutual trust that the job will be finished and done properly.
Licenses and Warranties
Being a licensed roofer in the state of Florida is not easy. Many companies end up “renting” or pretending they are a licensed contractor, even if they are not, because they can’t meet the rigorous standards set forth by the state. We have been licensed to operate since 1990, which shows we continue to understand and meet the safety and operational requirements for a competent roofing company.
Also be wary of those companies that do not offer a warranty of their work of any significant length. Only those contractors who trust their employees and the work they do will feel comfortable guaranteeing their products. We offer a warranty of 10 years, guaranteed in writing. We know our employees produce quality work, and we’re willing to back it up.
Great Reviews and Association Membership
It goes without saying that any company relies on the positive reviews to grow their business. Not every company is able to have the multitude of testimonials that we do. If you can’t trust your neighbors’ opinions of a company, who can you trust?
We are also a member of many contractor and roofing associations. These memberships show that we are dedicated to our industry. We are constantly striving to make our industry the best it can be.
There are many companies that rely on temporary day labor or subcontractors to complete the work on your home. These companies cannot be trusted to perform the best work possible, as there will be no repercussions if something goes wrong. We only use employees that are hired by us and who we know. Our employees are all insured, certified, and come in a recognizable uniform. Operating with this business structure allows us to be confident in the work our employees are doing, and also allows you to feel comfortable with the people working around your home.
