Roofing Contractors and the power of the internet

The net has changed the roofing industry significantly. Several years ago someone interviewed me and stated “hi, exactly how would the internet ever affect the roof industry. I said I don’t see how it can possibly influence the market. However I was wrong, it has been fantastic, due to the fact that the internet has actually created a resource for home owners to go out and find products that perhaps aren’t easily available in their area or items that maybe again the market establishment doesn’t always want them to understand about. You can do a great deal of study on the net, go to producers website, go to trade association internet site, the metal roof individuals have a couple of trade associations, metal roof lines, metal construction association, the asphalt roof individuals have the asphalt roofing associations, the concrete roofing guys have the concrete and tile institute or something like that, there’s even a wood shake bureau.

There are trade associations out there and a great deal of times, they will provide you practically straight and impartial details on their products and on their industry. That is a good place to do your research – go to individual makers if you discover a product that you think you want, go to the manufacturer, call them, inquire for information, or send them photos of your home even and state ‘hello, will your item work on my house before I head out and find a contractor or get somebody to put this on. I wish to know will your item deal with my residence?’. I am going to inform you a little trick right here, if anytime during your roofing research, you reach out to somebody who does not react to you, that need to throw up a big red flag. If they do not reply to you throughout your purchasing process when they should wish to respond to you, they desire to offer you things … believe me.

Can you possibly expect them to respond to you down the road if you have an issue or a concern or a problem. If you do not get any feedback upfront from a contractor or from a producer, or even a trade association, that has to be a red flag that these men are not going to assist you now and they are not going to assist you later. Think genuine difficult about that. What kinds of roofing products that are out there that you could want to consider.
