Need Roof Repair? Buyer Beware!
Welcome to Peak Roofing & Construction’s video blog series. Our goal is help inform and educate people in the Dallas – Fort Worth area on topics affecting the roof and exterior of their home or commercial property.
Hello. My name is Jeff Riss. I’m the president of Peak Roofing & Construction, based here in Frisco, Texas I would like to thank you for taking the time to watch our video series. Today, our topic is Buyer Beware.
In the last five years, the DFW area has experienced 25 significant hailstorms within a 30-mile radius. The second reason buyers should beware is that here in the State of Texas, there’s no licensing or registration to be a roofer. Any person with a ladder in the back of their truck can call themselves a roofer. Scary, right?
I recommend during storm season that you go to the North Texas Roofing Contractors Association website and social media channels to review their guidelines and recommendations.
One thing you need to consider is if they are local or storm chasers getting a local UPS address and looking like a local roofer. Do they carry both liability and worker’s compensation. General liability will protect you from water pouring into your house from an unexpected rainstorm. But if a labor worker falls off your roof, you are responsible for those injuries as well as myself.
Are they following safety guidelines by OSHA? Are they wearing eye protection? Fall protection? Do they have their ladders in the right positions? These are some of the important factors when you know deciding on a roofer.
We’re also seeing some issues with pricing here in the last couple months. We have seen proposals that are 30 or 40 percent less than our current job cost. Are they writing down exactly what they’re going to do when they replace your roof? Are they letting you know what materials they’re going to be using?
Thank you for taking the time to watch this video and just remember Peak Roofing & Construction is based here in Frisco. We work all over the Dallas – Fort Worth market and we have 30 years of experience and have strong labor and workmanship warranties.
