Scam Alert!!

We have received several phone calls over the past few days regarding a tactic some roofing companies are using to get your business.

These companies are inspecting roofs and then “requiring” homeowners to sign a document stating that it is “only permission their company needs” to get on your roof. However, this document is actually a contract and you are entering into an agreement for that company to do your roof and any other work that needs to be completed. This is a scam. Those contracts likely contain a “cancellation fee” if you decide not to use that company.

Many residents we have spoken to were unaware of what they were signing and now feel stuck and are being pressured with legal action if they do not want to use that company. There are steps you can take to get out of this and we can help (even if you choose not to use us).

Remember:

Don’t Sign Anything. Always do your research and do not give into high pressure sales tactics like this.

A reputable company will NEVER ask you to sign something during an inspection.

Greeley is home not only to our business but to our neighbors, friends, and family and it is important we alert you of this scam. Only allow local and well established contractors on your roof and don’t be pressured by door knocking companies. Please let us know if we can help.

July 29th Hail Storm

The hail storm on July 29th was a bad one. We've had reports of large marble to golf ball sized hail. We hope everyone is safe.

Some helpful tips: 

Broken Items: If you have experienced any broken windows or skylights use caution when trying to do any temporary repairs. Give our office a call if they are located in areas you are unable to access easily. Document any other damage you may find over the next couple of days and determine if you have any emergency repairs that need addressed. 

Door Knocking Companies: Just like the June 19th storm, this storm was large enough to attract out-of-town and out-of-state contractors. Download our "No Knocking Sign" and only allow local and trusted contractors on your roof.

Contacting Slaughter Roofing: Our office is still receiving a high volume of calls from the last storm and if we are unable to receive your call -- please leave us a message and we will get right back to you. Our office staff is the best and will be glad to return your call and answer any questions you may have.

Be Patient: Local quality contractors are busy and your insurance company understands this. Many companies give 1-2 years to repair any damages. Don't be pressured into getting your roof done right away.

Thank you to Steve Pratz, Brian Miller, and Mike Montoya for the pictures.
