PRLog - Jan. 10, 2014 - ST. LOUIS -- In October of last year, a local St. Louis TV station profiled a Granite City couple who had been ripped off by a roofing company. After their home was hit by a tornado, the couple hired a company and paid in full for a new roof and new gutters. Unfortunately, after the new roof was installed, the company and employees disappeared without replacing the gutters. At the time of the news story, the couple’s home still had the old, damaged gutters.
Fortunately for the Granite City couple, Brett Tesson – owner of St. Louis roofing company Tesson Roofing & Exteriors, LLC – took notice of their situation and volunteered to complete the job free of charge. The couple – who were overwhelmed by Mr. Tesson’s generosity – is extremely thankful for their new gutters, which look great and are functional.
According to Mr. Tesson, these types of experiences happen much more frequently than most may think. Aside from unethical contractors, there is an increasing trend of uncertified individuals or companies presenting themselves as certified professionals. This creates the risk of jobs being completed poorly, or not at all. As many of these companies or individuals are not properly insured, property owners face additional risks.
Although the story ended on a positive note, it can serve as a reminder to business and home owners of the importance of thoroughly vetting companies and contractors before making the decision to hire them. With projects as large and important as a new roof – and with any home-improvement or professional service for that matter – hiring certified professionals is essential to ensuring that jobs are completed successfully. Mr. Tesson recommends that property owners selected businesses accredited by the Better Business Bureau (BBB) and do their research before spending their hard-earned money.
