Roofing decisions can be unexpected, ESPECIALLY as a result of a water leak, or a fallen tree. Insurance companies assist by offering you Preferred Contractors.
Eastco, a preferred contractor, works hard to keep a good rating with the major providers. Your contractor should know roofing and do other work such as soffit and fascia repair, and siding.
Eastco is celebrating 40 years–be wary of fly-by-night contractors that change their name every few years. If they say they’ve been doing this for decades, but the company is a year old..
Roofing is in the top 5 deadly jobs, so make sure that the company’s insurance includes Liability Insurance (Texas requires a $250k policy- Eastco carries $2 Million) and Workman’s Comp Insurance, or require the workers to have their own.
“Price—MOST IMPORTANT!?????”, Not a chance. Roofs are expensive. Good roofs aren’t cheap. Examine what work is detailed. Are they removing the old shingles? What underlayment is used? What shingles, or gauge of metal in a metal roof? Are the pipe boots or gaskets being replaced? Starter strip? Drip edge? Ridge? Flashings? If the estimate doesn’t specify, ask.
for a roofing company that will be around when you need them, do a great job per manufacturers recommendations, been in the business longer than many have been alive, a family oriented business that believes in Fairness, Reputation, and Professionalism.
Eastco is Reasonable–not cheap. Cheap means the guy probably won’t be around should you have any issues later, may not have insurance, and their crew is sketchy characters that the roofing industry seems to attract. Make sure whoever you hire has insurance and demand a copy of it.
“For some, Roofing is a commodity—the cheaper the better… After 40 Years, Eastco disagrees.”
Over 40 years, Eastco has seen many changes. Yesterday’s Best is surpassed by a Better product today.
