There a potential storm looming for Seminole County homeowners, and we don’t just mean the upcoming hurricane season. The combination of current economic conditions and the inevitable storm season means the already volatile market for roofing replacements and repairs could become downright dangerous for homeowners who fall for too-good-to-be-true offers from roofers who likely won’t be in business months from now.
There’s only one sure-fire solution: put your trust in a roofing company with a 35-year reputation for exemplary service in Seminole County and a perfect record with the Better Business Bureau. That company is Winter Springs Roofing & Repair.
“A dangerous trend has been brewing in our industry for years now, and the recent economic turmoil has made the situation critical – unscrupulous and unsustainable roofing companies are making promises to homeowners that they can’t fulfill,” says Bill Sumner, the founder and owner of Winter Springs Roofing & Repair. “Even worse, many of these so-called roofers are taking clients’ money with no intention of providing the services they advertise. It’s all over the news these days.”
Bill says many fly-by-night roofing companies simply could not survive the economic plunge caused by the coronavirus. That means any deposits they took for roofing services are now lost and any warranties they promised to provide are null and void. Because many of these companies improperly manage their assets and often employ unlicensed subcontractors, they won’t qualify for government stimulus money that could at least keep them in business long enough for homeowners to file a complaint.
“I’m proud to have been in this industry for 35 years, and I’m proud of our stellar reputation and perfect BBB record,” says Bill. “I started during the Central Florida housing boom of the ‘80s and ‘90s, so I helped build many of the area’s roofs with my own hands. I know how to fix them, and I know how to replace them with a new roof that will last for another 30 years or more. And, my company will be around to back them.”
You can buy a new roof for less. Bill doesn’t deny it. But if you pay a little less up front but A LOT more down the road (and not even that far down the road), did you really come out ahead?
If you do business with Winter Springs Roofing & Repair, that’s a question you’ll never have to ask. Instead, you’ll just sleep peacefully under the highest-quality roof you can get.
