“What do you mean that leak isn’t covered under my warranty?”

IMG_0980

A sentence that many Northeast Ohio homeowners have echoed a lot over the past few weeks.  As frustrating as this sentence is to hear, it is the stance of every shingle roofing manufacturer.  Even the most comprehensive warranties do not cover ice dam leaks due to the unpredictable nature of how and why they form.  However, there are things that homeowners can do to protect themselves.

Annual home improvement shows have been commonplace for years in cities all over the U.S. These venues allow contractors to showcase their products and services to interested homeowners. For many homeowners, it can become a one-stop shop to interview, discuss and in some cases even purchase these services. For many contractors and homeowners this is the good… However we at RSR subscribe to a different method, one that does not allow us to commoditize our services as just another roof, on just another house. A fancy booth or a clever “giveaway” will mean very little if the job completed is not effective in the end. We believe that meeting our prospective customers at their home to discuss the details of the upcoming project, big or small, is a far better way to determine if we are the right contractor for the job.   We invite you to stop by our office in Mentor or come with us to an active job site to see how we operate 52 weeks out of the year instead of 1 or 2 in the middle of winter.

shingle choice for homeowners!

This usually results in a homeowner selecting a similar product to their neighbors and only differentiating themselves by color.  Instead, consider the following when deciding what the right choice is for your home and style.

  1. A recent study conducted by The National Realtors Association shows that on average the value of a house that had a designer shingle look increased by 6%.
  2. Asphalt shingles can visually mimic the look of slate tile or wood shakes to preserve or restore the original character of the house.
  3. Professional designers and architects state that a roof makes up 40% of a homes curb appeal.

The Shingle Process

 


Categories → Roofing Education Shingles

No matter what your trade, hands on experience and training can always boost your industry knowledge; and in turn produce quality results for your customers. But where you train can also make a difference. Most experts agree that training in a safe, test-like environment under the watchful eyes of industry pros is more preferable and produces better results, than say, being thrown into the fire and trying to learn under high stress situations. The same goes for the roofing industry as well. In our line of work, even small mistakes can result in big leaks and big headaches for our customers. So it makes sense to ask yourself this question as a potential customer; “Is it better that my roofer trains in a dedicated facility, or on my home during the job?”
