Metal Roof Contract Consulting
March 24, 2013 | Filed under: Articles
If you are considering signing a contract to have a metal roof installed on your home, let me put my years of metal roofing experience to use and provide you with real world advice that leads to a good metal roofing contract decision.
I frequently answer metal roofing questions free of charge. Many times each week I answer phone calls and emails with specific questions. I am happy to do that. Some homeowners, though, ask whether I can provide more in-depth advice regarding their roofs and contracts they may be considering to sign. I am pleased to do that for a small fee.
Here’s how it works:
If you can send me photos of your home, along with your address (so I can try to access satellite imagery), and a copy of the contract or contracts you’re considering signing for a metal roof, I will be happy to review those things and provide you with an easy-to-understand report and evaluation.
My report will include my thoughts on the scope of work, the products being used, the contractor, any special circumstances concerning your roof, and details on anything I see missing. I will also give you advice on questions to ask your contractor and additional information you need to request pertaining to warranties and other matters. My goal is to help you avoid a roofing nightmare but instead join the ranks of metal roofing success stories.
In most cases, I will have about two hours of time involved in reviewing what you sent me, perhaps asking some follow-up questions, and writing a report. My fee for this entire service is just $175. This is much lower than my normal fee of $200 per hour when I do professional metal roof consulting. All of our correspondence about your roof will be via email for this fee.
If I do not feel I can complete report within 48 hours, I will let you know immediately and you can decide whether to go forward or not. This special fee of $175 is available only on single family homes. If you have a larger project where you’d like to use my services, please let me know details.
Avoid a roofing nightmare … make sure that your investment in a metal roof is successful. Get started today by emailing me photos of your home, your address, and copies of contracts you are considering. Please email these items to me at email@example.com
Let’s get started! I hope to hear from you soon.
