Yates Roofing and Construction has stepped in to help a local grandmother who was scammed by a Tecumseh construction company. Ms. Thompson, who shares the home with her ten grandchildren, hired and paid a considerable deposit to the construction company to replace her roof and remove a shed and two trees from her backyard. Unfortunately, after taking her money and starting the work, they left the job unfinished leaving the grandmother and her ten grandchildren in a lurch with her insurance company threatening to drop her coverage.
We heard of Ms. Thompson's predicament and decided we had to help. Hiring a roofing contractor or construction company can be a daunting task. It is best to take your time, get estimates from a few different companies, and check multiple sources for reviews on each company. Get a written estimate and make sure that any verbal agreements are added. Go with a local company and not some fly-by-night company that won't be around if you have problems. Be wary of any company that asks for a high deposit up-front. A deposit of one-third of the total cost is a standard in most cases. The Better Business Bureau has these tips for choosing a roofing company.
