Do Not Repair Your Roof!


Hey, Daniel, here with CCIand I have a very important message for you today. Do not repair yourroof now. Why, as a roofing contractor, would I be telling younot to repair your roof? That doesn't make much sense, does it?Well, I want you to consider a few things while you're thinking about maintenancefor your roof, before you go to repair it and potentially cost yourself alot of money. I've seen it happen to a lot of apartment complexes,I've seen it happen to property managers and I've also seen it happen to homeowners. So if you fall under any of these categories, listen to what I'msaying, because I don't want you to be hurt in the end. Okay, we've seen a lot of people dealing with insurance claims where they've patched theirroof, they've made a repair, they've tried to maintain the property, butthey've used a shingle that doesn't exactly match the shingles around it. So whatthey've done is now the insurance company can come in and say, Oh,you're clearly okay with a mismatch roof,...

...with a patchwork quilt, so we'renot responsible now to make the whole thing match again. We're just going topatch it up and now it goes from a full replacement to a repair whenthey should have gotten the full roof or placed. I've seen this happen countlesstimes and usually you know you don't know any better, you're just trying toprotect your home, but you don't think about the consequences that could be downthe road. So our three big things are local, honest and experienced.How this is going to apply to you? Apartment Complex has property managers and homeownersin terms of roof repair roof maintenance, is that we understand the storm datesand the storm events, so we know likely when your property was damaged. We know what type of wind speeds there were, what size hail itmaybe we're very into with that because we're here. We look at the stormreports, we see the hell reports, we know the wind speeds and wehave a great understanding of building code. So when we're they're inspecting your property, checking for storm damage, we're going to be able to know if there'ssomething out of building code or if there's...

...a concern. Maybe the building codeis recently changed and something's not up to par. Honest. We care farmore for the relationship and the longevity then we do for the immediate business.So we're not going to come out to your property and tell you there's anissue when there's not an issue. We would rather build that relationship over timeand make sure that you trust us, make sure that we're giving you honestfeedback of the issues before we move forward with recommending a repair or recommending yourreplacement. We're going to tell you what to expect down the road with eachstep we take. Okay, you're going to get that transparency from us because, again, what matters to us is the relationship, not the immediate business. Now finally experienced this, especially in terms of insurance restoration. We have, between everyone here at the company, thousands of ours. We have decadesof experience dealing with insurance claims, so we can identify damage. We've gothay certified inspectors, we have IIC OURC certified water text we have exactimate certifications, we have everything we need that to...

...understand the insurance restoration process to makesure that we can tell you what to expect and we can jump through thehoops to make sure you get a proper outcome. Okay, we also understandhow to document damage. Now this is huge for you, apartment complexes,condo associations, property managers. Maintenance on your roof is huge because we cantrack throughout the years. Maybe it's a small, you know, annual orsemi annual contract where we come out and maintain your roofs. We make surethere's no issues. We document each time and now, if a storm eventhappens, we can say one hundred percent this is what the property looked likesix months ago, this is what it looks like now. These are theclear new damages from this storm event and there's no questions asked because we havethat proper documentation in place and we've done the homework to make sure that thatprocess is easier for you and your properties maintained and keeps his value. Okay, now we know the proper repair methods. That won't hinder your approval, sowe're not going to go in and patch up your roof and potentially disqualifyyou from a full replacement down the road.

That's huge. We've seen it happento a lot of people and it's really, really hard, after that'shappened for us to come in and do the right thing. So make sureyou use someone who is local, honest and experienced. And the final thing, with experiences, were trusted by the biggest shaped shingle manufacturers in America,GF and Owens corning. Both have selected us as preferred and certified contractors toinstall their product. So you have the peace of mind that even if,God forbid, we go out of business, they're going to be backing our warranties, so it's always protected by a large billion dollar company that our workis done correctly. Great Ratings on the BBB, great ratings on Google,facebook, yelp. We're here for you. Local, honest and experience. TheCCI residual.
