Paul Saunders Roofing Company
Buyers of our home hired Saunders (family related deal) for the roof assessment and Saunders did an estimate of repairs at 20K - stating the "active roof leaks, cracks and a condition of the roof". We have been in the house for three years and roof was installed 10 years ago and every year - before the fall - we have a roofer come in to inspect it. After we got lowballed, we refused to listen to the crazy estimate and we got two roofers in. There is nothing wrong with it, no active leaks, nothing. Since, we sold a house, as buyers hired local and registered roofer. But, Saunders scam estimate did make it time-costly and since one has to disclose the inspection - it was just a very avoidable issue. We would never hire them as we now have a reason to believe they lie, they scam people and one is possibly paying for things that need not work.
Tips & Advices
The most common types of roofing material are:
  • Asphalt shingles
  • Metal roofing
  • Slate shingles
  • Concrete roofing
Metal roofing material and algae-resistant asphalt shingles are the appropriate roofing material for rainy climates.
Houses located in  areas which are prone to wildfires, should avoid the use of flammable roofing materials such as wood shingles.
Not only should you ask to get in contact with past clients, it is also recommended that  homeowners visit projects currently underway to see how the contractor or company actually performs during a job. You can also go online and check out other customer reviews.
Reputable roofers do offer a warranty against poor workmanship. Additionally, the material used often carries a warranty from the manufacturer against defects (assuming proper installation). It is the homeowner’s responsibility to check on the availability of all such warranties before any work is performed.
