The Mister Shingle Difference

  • US - EVERY ROOF IS COMPLETELY REMOVED DOWN TO THE SHEATHING.  ANY BAD SHEATHING IS REPLACED.

  • THEM - EXISTING LAYERS OF FELT ARE LEFT ON.  EXISTING SHEATHING IS NOT INSPECTED AND LEFT IN ITS ORIGINAL CONDITION.

  • US - PROPERLY LICENSED, BONDED, AND INSURED.  PERMITS ARE PULLED FOR EVERY JOB.

  • THEM - PROBABLY UNLICENSED.  PERMITS RARELY PULLED.

  • US - WE CARRY A MINIMUM OF $1,000,000 IN GENERAL LIABILITY AND WORKMAN'S COMPENSATION INSURANCE WITH A $2,000,000 UMBRELLA COVERAGE.  THIS CAN BE COVERAGE CAN BE UPPED IF NECESSARY FOR LARGE COMMERCIAL PROJECTS.

  • THEM - $100,000 GENERAL LIABILITY ONLY, AS THIS IS THE MINIMUM TO OBTAIN A LOCAL LICENSE.  MOST HAVE NO WORKMAN'S COMPENSATION INSURANCE.  MOST MAY NOT EVEN HAVE INSURANCE, AS IT IS CHEAPER TO PAY THE FINE THAN TO ACTUALLY HAVE INSURANCE

  • US - WE USE TOP QUALITY MATERIALS FROM BRANDS LIKE OWENS CORNING AND GAF.  ALL INSTALLATIONS HAVE THE PROPER MATCHING MATERIALS FOR MANUFACTURER'S WARRANTY PURPOSES.  WE USE THE PROPER STARTER FOR EACH MANUFACTURER, AND HIP AND RIDGE CAP SO THE QUALITY OF MATERIAL IS CONSISTENT ACROSS THE ROOF.

  • THEM - OFTEN USE THE CHEAPEST BRANDS OF MATERIALS.  ITEMS LIKE STARTER ARE OFTEN GENERIC, AND RIDGE CAP IS MADE FROM A CUT 3-TAB SHINGLES AND NOT THE SAME QUALITY OF MATERIAL AS YOUR ACTUAL SHINGLES.

  • US - YOUR JOB WILL BE DONE WITHIN A MAXIMUM OF 14 DAYS FROM THE TIME YOU SIGN A CONTRACT. WE REQUIRE NO DEPOSIT TO BEGIN WORK AND ONLY COLLECT MONEY ONCE THE INSTALLATION HAS BEEN COMPLETED TO YOUR SATISFACTION.

  • THEM - YOUR JOB WILL BE DONE WITHIN A 3-6 MONTH PERIOD.  A DEPOSIT OF 25% - 100% IS REQUIRED UPON SIGING A CONTRACT.

  • US - ALL OF OUR PROJECT MANAGERS ARE EXPERIENCED PROFESSIONALS THAT NOT ONLY KNOW ABOUT THE WORK WE DO, BUT ARE WELL-VERSED IN THE INSURANCE CLAIMS PROCESS.  MANY OF OUR PROJECT MANAGERS HAVE MULTIPLE INDUSTRY CERTIFICATIONS, MAKING THEM EXPERTS IN THEIR FIELD.  FROM THE ADJUSTER MEETING UNTIL THE FINAL CHECK, MISTER SHINGLE WILL BE THERE TO ASSIST YOU IN ALL ASPECTS OF YOUR JOB.

  • THEM - LITTLE IF ANY EXPERIENCE WITH INSURANCE CLAIMS.  DURING LARGE STORM EVENTS, MANY ARE JUST REGULAR GUYS RESPONDING TO AN AD ON CRAIGSLIST TO SELL HAIL DAMAGED ROOFS.
