ROOFING CRAFTSMANSHIP HAS DETERIORATED OVER RECENT DECADES

The roofing trade is perceived by consumers as being easy, requiring little skill by the contractor and tradesman. It is easy to get into and get out of, according to industry surveys. A Columbia yellow pages survey shows that there were 31 total listings in 1992 for roofing contractors, only 16 of these were listed in 1988, only 9 from 1982. Just as astonishing, is that 17 additional (listed in 89-91, but not listed in 88 or 92) have come and gone.These statistics are still representative of the industry today.

DON’T GET CAUGHT SHORT ON OUR NEW ROOF

It seems to make sense to invite a number of roofers to bid on your roofing project. It would seem that hiring a lower bidder also makes sense. But consider this: Over a 10 year period, Naugle Co. has repaired 142 relatively new roofs for failures, leaks and collateral damage due to the poor craftsmanship of the “low bidder”. The cost of the repairs and collateral damage averaged $931.69, almost 1/3 the cost of the original roofing project. We’ll make sure you keep that $931.69 by quoting you a price that guarantees a roof that will last.

A QUOTE FROM PROFESSIONAL ROOFING MAGAZINE

“In every roofing competition that I have ever seen in the United States, the main criteria that is typically judged is speed. This unfortunately betrays our “Yankee” obsession with quick, short-term profits from fast roofing. We must get a handle on our cheap attitude toward roofing.”

THE HUMAN FACTORS IN ROOFING FAILURES AND LEAKS

Most contractors price roofing jobs and worker output by the “square”, disregarding the actual tasks involved. In fact, most employees are paid by the “square”. This results in reluctance of both the contractor and the employee to take the necessary time to properly perform the task at hand.

ROOFING IS MUCH MORE THAN NAILING ON SHINGLES

Most roof failures are caused by poor treatment of details such as: ventilation, edging, flashings, underlayment, vents, shingle condition, deck surfaces, fastenings, configuration, valleys.

THESE CONDITIONS OF THE INDUSTRY HAVE RESULTED IN:

  • Short lifespan of quality materials
  • Excessive roofing leaks
  • Gauging skill by speed
  • low compensation that discourages quality
  • Few contractors and tradesmen that stay in the industry long enough to become skilled and knowledgeable in the requirements for roofing applications techniques
