Protect you're property from cheap price reality that relates to concerns for operating with unsupervised careless production workers, and the unskilled contractor working out of trade; paid for shoddy workmanship leaving deep knife cuts in the Underlayment, hazardous slipped roof tile exposing the roof felt, and other defects resulting in premature roof decay linked to toxic mold and expensive structural damage as documented below and throughout this site.
Don't be fooledinto a cheap throw-on project compared with quality that should last 10 - 50 years.
Your home and/or business were designed and built with complex
waterproof systems to protect the structure, its occupants, and
contents from fire, structural damage, water, and noise. Don't Be
Fooled by Wanna Be Contractors who create Poor Workmanship Issues due
to their lack of trade skill experience.
Hiring the cheapest bidder without research can have serious consequences relating to poor quality work linked to construction defects, as well as the potential for major litigation in the event the contractor is unlicensed, uninsured, and/or operating under the table without Workers Compensation or a certificate of self-insured. And by participating in the underground economy, you affect the government's
ability to provide services such as health care, pensions, and
employment insurance. The CSLB
takes this problem seriously, and has a number of Federal and State
agencies involved on identification, audit, and enforcement initiatives
aimed at addressing the underground economy.
An El Nino climate can produce very wet weather with high winds. The October 2004 El Nino resulted in producing the heaviest rains to our region in 64 years due in part to Global climate changes (Global Warming) with rising temperatures resulting in heavier and longer storm patterns leading to property damage. Wet weather puts heavy demands on the roofing and waterproofing industry, therefore, considering the distinct possibility for longer storm patterns to our region, normally characterized by mid year fair climate, we recommend taking advantage of the fair weather pattern by requesting a Preventative Maintenance Inspection "BEFORE" the next heavy rains to our region.
Our Credentials During the 2004 and 2010 heaviest rains
to Southern California in 70-Years, we received (No Leak Callbacks) for the custom quality projects we've completed during our four decades in business, proving that we have the stability, and the proven reliable quality that stands
the test of time!
Roofs are designed with complex waterproofing systems. When selling your property buyers look for aesthetic curb appeal as well as durability relating to investment value. Before you hire for price, read examples below:
Contractors who don't prepare contracts may not protect you from employee accidents and construction defects, linked to safety hazards, and homeowner insurance cancellation.
You could face litigation coupled with financial loss if there is a work related injury or damage to your property.
Without a contract, you could lose any deposit or advance payment given to the contractor, or find yourself charged far more than you expected.
There is little you can do about poor quality or incomplete work, and no assurance that you will get warranty coverage during and after sales service.
Also understand that Home Inspectors are often prevented from
performing roof inspections due in part to: A) Unsafe roof access; B)
Roof surface is too high;
C) Potential roof deterioration creating inspection safety hazards;
D) Moisture, and/or moss creating an unsafe slippery condition;
E) Potential roof tile damage as well as damage to the Underlayment
from foot traffic;
F) Seller's refusal to allow roof inspections; and G) Lack of building trade experience.
