November 21st, 2012 - Ballantyne and Weddington Roof Replacement Projects

 

The following homes were completed in the Ballantyne Country Club and the Weddington areas. The landscaping and size of the homes made for challenging projects, however our team was able to demonstrate our ability to successfully implement timely roof replacements, while maintaining a detail-oriented focus on quality. We're grateful for an email we received from one of the homeowners:

 

"As a professional engineer with experience in industrial and commercial construction, I fully appreciate M1 Roofing's excellent workmanship and the high-quality roofing materials that M1Roofing used. My original roof was not installed properly and, as a result, I had to have several repairs before the roof was 10 years old. I would recommend M1 Roofing to everyone."

August 23rd, 2012 - What is Ice and Water Shield?

 

Ice & water shield offers added leak protection for sloped roofs in climates subject to ice dams and wind-driven rain. It is applied to the roof deck prior to the application of the finished roof covering, used in conjunction with roof underlayment. The membrane seals around nails and roof discontinuities, so water that doesn't drain properly cannot penetrate the roof. It also creates a weather-tight barrier against wind-dirven rains that can cause shingles to lift and leak. Ice and water shield is typically installed throughout the length of valleys, around penetrations, dormers, chimneys, end-walls, and at eaves. M1 Roofing includes the use of ice and water shield in roof replacement quotes. Be sure that your roofing contractor is, in fact, making of this roofing material.

March 22nd, 2012 Thank You to Our Customers!

 

As a company we would just like to say thank you to all the customers who have gotten us to where we are today. It is your choice on the roofing contractor you choose to use, and we're thankful for all those that have chosen us to perform their work, in addition to those that continue to refer our business. We take our business very seriously and strive to operate a customer-focused organization, with the added benefit of vast experience in the industry. We will continue to do our part to stand out from the competition, by focusing on the little things. Once again we would like to say THANK YOU!!!

 

February 16th, 2012 Shop Local!

 

See the following link which discusses the positive impacts of shopping local. Not only is this important for all businesses, but especially for contractors and roofing contractors alike. Homeowners who use contractor services should ensure that the business they are dealing with is local to support what for most people, is a long term investment in their home (as long as they plan on living there, and for reselling value). In terms of roof replacements, the roof is typically a 25-30 year investment, therefore it is important to use someone local that you can trust.

 

SHOP LOCAL!

 

January 28th, 2012 Free Roof Inspections

 

Don't hesitate to contact us for a free roof inspection if you believe you have roof damage. It could be in the form of wind or hail damage, meaning if your house was in an area which was affected by hail storms, an inspection could determine if you have damage not easily visible from the ground. Wind damage is much easier to spot for most homeowners in the form of missing shingles, however hail inspections do require trained personnel familiar with what is actually considered damage by insurance companies and adjusters. There have been cases where homeowners we have been called out for to perform repair work were surprised to learn that they had hail or wind damage, at which point their entire roof was replaced through insurance.

 

December 27th, 2011 Recently Completed Project!

 

Here's a photo rundown of our approach to roofing. You can see we do what it takes to take care of all landscaping, in addition to any other obstacles like the pool seen in one of the last photos. We also place ice and water shield in all valleys, endwalls, and around pipe penetrations. This is standard on all our roofs and should be for any reputable contractor. We also install ridge vent throughout the ridge with 1 foot offsets on the ends, maximizing your air flow rather than cutting you short. This was a major project which was finished in just over one day. The blue paper you see is an upgraded underlayment refered to as "Palisade". This product is rated for 30-Years.

 

Here's the email we received from the homeowners when we completed this project:

 

Dale/Matt:

 

We just wanted to let you know how happy we were with your service today – we have already sent your company name and a very positive recommendation to our entire neighborhood.  We chose you because of your honesty/professionalism and quality of work and are very thankful that we did so.  Thank you for making this process as painless as it possibly could be. 

 

Please feel free to use our names in any of your marketing materials as a reference.  We are beyond satisfied!!

 

Our best,

Jen & Brad

October 12th, 2011 - Common Cupboard

 

Be sure to check out Common Cupboard in Indian Trail! Common Cupboard is a non-profit organization food pantry located in in the business park behind the Post Office in Indian Trail. Through volunteer work and donations, the organization reaches out to over 200 families in need per month. Each family receives about a week's worth of groceries. Common Cupboard opened in July 2006 and has steadily grown its roots into the local communities. After speaking with the owners, I got a sense for the grassroots beginnings of this humble organization. They are always in need of volunteers, so don't hesitate to contact them regarding loading/unloading materials, sorting foods, delivering groceries, and so on. You may also wish to make food donations to them to help others. They also run a thrift store called Common Things so be sure to stop in some time to browse around for a good cause.

 

Visit their homepage at:

www.thecommonplace.org

 

There's also a banquet coming up on Thursday October 27th, 2011 from 7pm to 9pm. The event is hosted by those affilifated with Common Cupboard. It will be a celebration of the many volunteers that have had an impact within the organization. There will also be a silent auction at the event! See the link below for more information on the banquet.

July 10th, 2011 - We Recycle our Shingles

 

 

logotop

 

We proudly recycle asphalt shingles with Boggs Paving. Why recycle asphalt shingles? It reduces landfill waste and is green certified! We separate our debris into asphalt shingles, nails and the felt. Other materials such as felt paper rolls, wood, metal flashings, gutters, plastic wrap, buckets, paper waste, or other construction debris are dumped separately.  Check out more information on the Boggs Group at www.boggspaving.com.

 

 

May 20th, 2011 - Inspection Reports

 

Many customers call requesting roofing inspections for hail or wind damage. We happily provide these services free of charge to our customers.  When we perform an inspection we create reports so that all information from our inspection is documented.  We include photos of any hail or wind damage, in addition to other issues which may include ventilation deficiencies, possible sources of leaks, or any other problems that may be linked to the roof's existing condition.

 

Our reports are created for each and every customer, which allows them to view all the things we see when we are on the roof.  This establishes evidence and a basis for moving forward (or not) with a replacement, and allows the customer to better understand what is going on with their roof.  Many contractors make claims that a roof has hail damage without stepping foot on it (many from out of town, just heard of a crew from California the other day!), hoping to get homeowners to call their insurance to get the adjuster out. Inspecting for hail requires stepping foot on the roof, unless soft ball sized hail has made it's way through the area leaving obvious damage. Making a claim that a roof has hail damage (without inspecting it properly), leads to a waste of time for all those involved, including the homeowner making the calls to their insurance company, as well as the adjuster coming out to investigate the roof.  We step foot on each and every roof, preparing reports to provide valid evidence for why or why not to perform a replacement or contact your insurance.

April 16th, 2011 - Recent Wind and Hail Storms

 

Over the last couple weeks there have been storms that made their way through Gastonia, Charlotte, Union County, and the upper portions of South Carolina.  There have been varying cases of damage ranging from obvious wind and hail damage to roofs and vinyl siding, to not so obvious hail damage that cannot easily be seen from the ground.  If your property was in the area where hail storms passed through, it is recommended having an inspection done to verify that no major damage has occurred which could affect the life of the existing shingles, rubber, or metal roofing.  Our inspections include pictures and a report which documents all of our findings. We are available to perform roofing replacements, as well as vinyl siding repair that is associated with storm damage. Don't hesitate to contact us if you are interested in a roofing inspection.

February 4th, 2011 - Roofing Contractor Tips / Local News

 

 

 

 

 

 


As a roofing company, we strive to provide exellent service to our customers, whether it's a small repair or a major commercial project.  There are many companies out there in the roofing industry, some reputable and some that use unethical practices.  We like to provide property owners with tips that are applicable to any project in which a contractor is needed. 

 

Here's a few of the tips we suggest to our clients:

 

Always do some background research on the contractor you wish to use. Are they locally owned? Do they carry proper licensing as a company. It's important that they offer workman's compensation insurance and general liability in order to cover their company and the property owner in the event of an accident.

Get multiple estimates. Don't always accept the first unless it's someone you've used in the past and trust.

Never pay money upfront. If a company needs money upfront, then they may not be in a good standing financially. They can also accept your money and never step foot on the roof, which is one of the worst cases of companies giving the roofing industry a bad name. The majority of roofing contractors have accounts set up with their materials dealer, so they are able to cover materials, then pay their labor once the job is complete.

 

Here's a news article link about a roofing contractor that came in from out of town "storm-chasing" hail damage insurance jobs.  The company took the money up front without ever placing the first shingle, leaving many homeowners across North and South Carolina without the roof for which their insurance companies paid for. Click this link to read the story at www.wbtv.com.

Be weary about door-to-door tactics, there are many storm chasers that will enter the area when a storm hits. They can come from neighboring states, and if used, when problems arise, getting them back out can be a hassle.

Do a little reading up on roofing, and ask the contractor questions when he comes out. Test his knowledge base.

There are good, reputable roofing companies out there, just do your homework!
