“We were very concerned about protection for our plants in the areas near the construction. It turned out that not one single plant was damaged. In fact, you could not even see any evidence that work had been done or that anyone had even been here except that a new roof was in place. Please pass along our thanks and appreciation to everyone involved in the project. The whole team did an excellent job”
Gordon and Lynn, Sussex, WI
“They came out to the house, looked at the areas we were concerned about, and offered practical and less expensive options than replacement. All the options were things we could do ourselves which is actually what the representative suggested! We were very impressed with and grateful for this honest appraisal of the repair work. We will definitely call Guardian in the future with any bigger issues that present themselves.”
Mary K., Racine, WI
“After doing a lot of research including two other estimates, I felt that you were the company that I wanted to go with! Your price wasn’t the lowest, but the quality was by far the best. The integrity of your people was impressive, every promise was kept.”
Richard, Menomonee Falls, WI
Advice for Homeowners Looking for a Roofing Contractor…
from a Homeowner.
The Typical Process of Buying Roofing Just Can’t Be Trusted
Here Are the 3 Biggest Reasons Why…
1. It’s Superficial:
However, this superficial process is simply not accurate enough to rectify specific issues that you may be having with your roof. If you are simply replacing your roof for esthetic purposes, it may work. However, if you are looking to solve a specific problem or problems, simple measurements won’t do. Here’s why…
Many Roofing Problems Aren’t Caused by Your Roof; They’re Caused by Your Attic
The most misunderstood and overlooked component of the roofing system is not the roof itself; it is the home attic ventilation system. Most homeowners aren’t aware that when you’re experiencing problems with your roof, the attic is one of the first places you should check for signs of a problem.
Beware that if a roofing company simply takes measurements of your roof to provide you with an estimate, you may end up with a new roof and a lighter bank account, but the same problem still remains.
2. It’s Product Focused:
It takes a tremendous amount of knowledge, time, and effort to properly diagnose the true cause of your roofing issues. It is significantly easier to simply suggest a new roofing product.
Beware of companies that immediately try to sell you new roofing products before taking the time to actually do a thorough inspection of your roof, attic, and overall roofing system. If the roofing company that you are considering simply takes measurements of your roof and doesn’t conduct a thorough inspection of every square inch of your roof and your attic’s interior, you risk being sold something that you don’t need, and more importantly, something that won’t solve your roofing issues.
3. It Lacks Details
One of the most common problems homeowners experience after signing a contract are change orders. This is something that is easy for dishonest companies to take advantage of because there is so little detail defined in the original contract. Without specifying the exact products that will be used, many companies will add on hidden costs, extra labor, and different products that can double the original price that was quoted. Since the contract has already been signed, homeowners don’t have a lot of options but to go along with it to try to finish their project. Although it is a common problem, it is also easily preventable when you educate yourself.
There is no such thing as having too much detail in the scope of work with roofing projects. The more details are discussed and written down, the more protection you have as the homeowner. You are in complete control until the contract is signed, so ask many questions about the specific products that will be used, different price options, the installation method that will be used, as well as the expectations you may have for the project. Any honest contractor will be happy to provide such details and will provide a thorough and specific contract to make sure your expectations are met.
Here’s a Better Way to Buy Roofing, & why Salespeople are absolutely NOT needed.
Step 1- THOROUGH INSPECTION
It is important that you and the roofing company you hire are both on the same page as to what you want to accomplish with your new roof. You want to avoid the all-too-common pitfall of a homeowner spending thousands of dollars on a new roof, only to end up with the exact same problem that they had before replacing the roof.
The fact of the matter is that you may not even need new a new roof!
A thorough inspection will reveal the true cause of the problem that you are trying to fix.
Once a thorough examination has been completed, then it’s time to move to the next logical step.
