My wife and I have spent last week interviewing six roofing companies for a bid to provide a new roof for our Virginia Beach home. The only thing I know about roofing is what I have read on the internet. Last week was an educational experience to say the least. Chuck Simpson was the last to be interviewed Saturday afternoon. He pretty much said what everyone else said and his price quote fell in line with most of the others. However, he did something during the interview that none of the others did or even mentioned. He went up into our attic to make sure there was nothing hiding under the shingles on the roof. Three of the six companies did not even bother to go up onto the roof to see what condition the roof was in and the other two just took measurements and said nothing about any possible concerns.
I signed a contract with Mr. Simpson Saturday evening because of his concerns that we receive a trouble free roofing system. Not because of pricing (there were three bids lower than his) or for his claims about GAF roofing materials. Mr. Simpson took the time to thoroughly check our roof to make sure nothing was missed.
I still think the price is too high, but after the roof is installed and I never have to call about a problem I suppose the price was just right.
