Roofer referral service in Texas offers approved network of roofing contractors
IRVING, Texas, Oct. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- FindRooferNow.com, a referral site dedicated to helping homeowners in Texas locate reliable roofing contractors, is highlighting the dangers of contracting roofers through review sites.
FindRooferNow.com is taking steps to ensure that Texas residents have an outlet to reputable companies, without the fear of scams or subpar work. Through its website, the company is working to prequalify contractors and educate homeowners on the necessary steps to picking a trusted roofing contractor in Texas.
With the rise of peer reviewed services through sites such as Angie's List and Yelp, homeowners seeking roofing contractors services are now turning to these outlets to find their next service professional. However, with accusations of bribery, extortion and slander paving the way for reviews-both good and bad-on these sites, it's becoming harder for homeowners to find reliable, qualified professionals to service their homes.
In a September 2013 Consumer Report on five of the most popular customer review sites, it was uncovered that many practices of these sites pave the way for biased ratings. On some sites, including Angie's List or Yelp, companies can trade advertising dollars for more favorable positioning. On other platforms, such as Consumers' Checkbook and Porch, a lack of quality control creates unfair reviews for companies, clouding a true comparison of contractors.
"We've seen the rise in disingenuous reviews and recommendations on sites and are working to actively protect homeowners against scams and other costly contracting mistakes," said Reginald Grigsby, Co-Owner of FindRooferNow.com. "Not only do we pre-qualify roofers for our exclusive network, but we do something really special for homeowners as well. We are in touch with them throughout the entire process of hiring a contractor, from talks with roofers in our network to hiring one. We educate homeowners on the complete screening process and what to expect and look out for in their selection process."
FindRooferNow.com's exclusive network of qualified roofers offer their services to Texas homeowners and each roofer within the network must maintain a favorable standing to remain a member. Should a homeowner receive subpar work or be treated unfairly, roofers will be evaluated and removed from the network to guarantee only a superior selection of service providers. All of the contractors evaluated by FindRooferNow.com are done so in an unbiased manner, ensuring total transparency for homeowners.
"Currently, roofers in Texas are not required to be licensed or registered by the state and with the rate of insurance fraud in regards to roofing contractors on the rise, it's now more important than ever to ensure that people are getting what they pay for," said Grigsby. "FindRooferNow.com is taking steps to protect homeowners and make it easy for them to find a reputable roofer."
