Correct Roofing / Workmanship, etc.
Correct Roofing respresentative canvassed door to door. Their pitch was that they work with the insurance companies so i don't have to. We had some bad hail damage to our area in August 2008. Many homes had damage to their roofs, gutters, downspouts, soffits and fascia. The representative talked a really good sale and was easy to trust. He spent a lot of time explaining things and had come back a few times. Everything got screwed up after that. At this point the owner met with me and two of my neighbors that were to have them do a tear off and re-roof. At this point a "smart" person would have said forget it! The owner was talking the talk too. She actually tried to charge me $1, 300 more than we had just discussed! I, at this juncture, I said Wait a minute! During several conversations with the representative and the female owner I made it a point to ask if the roofers were skilled roofers. People that worked for them on a continual basis. I was assurred time and time again that they were. When my roof replacement was started, I saw they were using the standard grade of under layment paper. It was my understanding that a heavier grade of paper was to be used due to the fact that I was having the Archetectual/Dimensional shingles put on. When I went to speak to two of the men outside, they did not even speak English. They directed me to one of the men that did speak English. After this I went outside and started taking pictures of the roof. The men that saw me about froze in their tracks. Cut to about about 3 - 4 months later. I have a leak from the roof where the vent for the kitchen stove exhaust fan is. They did send someone out to fix it. Had the work been done by a skilled roofer there should not have been a leak. Bottom line: As they say, if someone comes to your door to solicit, SAY NO THANKS AND CLOSE THE DOOR. I will now have to always be worried that I may encounter more problems with this new roof. Also, I feel terrible because I got several of my neighbors to contract with Correct Roofing. If they have any problems due to their new roofs I will feel responsible. I had checked Correct Roofing out with the BBB. They were not listed with them. They had an excuse for that also. Word to the wise, use a local contractor that has a stake in the community and would have some accountability.
