Contractor Exposes the Biggest Lie About Roofing Warranties

The Roof Medics Offers Program to Protect Homeowners

PHOENIX, AZ--(Marketwire - December 8, 2009) - The Roof Medics, LLC - Nicholas Bryditzki, "The Roof Medic" states; "Warranties are cheap! -- It cost the contractor nothing to add on another 3, 5, or even 10 more warranty years to his proposal. The Registrar of Contractors only requires 2 years, anything after that is up to the contractor. If they go out of business so does your warranty." In this down economy mixed with months of no rain, contractors are offering extra long warranties to entice property owners to purchase new roofs.

The Roof Medics, LLC a Cert-A-Roof® authorized contractor has developed a Double Warranty Protection Program for homeowners, through a Cert-A-Roof® Alliance. This coalition of roofing contractors in the Phoenix market work together on projects offering the property owner double protection. Each authorized contractor must carry all required insurances, which protects the property owner during the project. Each contractor inspects the workmanship of the other limiting the chances of poor quality. Both contractors carry the responsibility of the warranty. If one does go out of business the other is there to honor the warranty.

Nicholas Bryditzki, "The Roof Medic" suggests that property owners should at least get a full roof inspection report prior to hiring any roofing contractor to make sure contractors are bidding apples to apples. Cert-A-Roof authorized contractors offer Visual ROOF® inspection reports. This written inspection report along with color photographs, provides the actual condition of the roof, whether the roof can be repaired or if it actually does need to be replaced. This added step could protect a property owner from being taken advantage of by an unscrupulous contractor. It also can help when collecting bids (making sure all contractors are bidding on the same scope of work), and choosing the best contractor for their particular roofing project.
