Create a Great Contractor Relationship

You’ve heard the term “unprecedented times” so much over the last two years- it’s hard to wrap your head around what people mean when they say it! But let me say...the construction industry? It’s “unprecedented”! I’ve never seen so many homeowners calling us, stressed...

Winter Roof Style Guide

It’s March 13th, 1993.  The grocery is picked clean as anxious homeowners stockpile essentials.  Everyone is hunkered down at home watching the weather report.  By the end of the day, an estimated 23.6 inches of snow had fallen. And it just kept coming. Snow was...

Ask Vern: How Do I Choose a Roofing Quote?

Hey Vern,  We need a new roof bad...but deciding between different quotes has been a real headache. It’s just asphalt shingle. We received one roofing quote for $8,250 and another for $17,450. That’s a HUGE DIFFERENCE. How am I supposed to know whether the larger roof...
