Prior to starting Colony Roofing & Exteriors in 1990, I spent about ten years as a construction manager in the residential home industry. It was my responsibility to manage the construction of as many as twelve new homes at one time. The job required managerial skills of both people and time. I was expected to complete the construction within a specified time and under budget. In order to accomplish this it was imperative that I hired experienced and professional crews who understood the importance of being on time and producing superior work. I apply these same principles as owner of Colony Roofing & Exteriors.
When it comes to quality, our roofing, siding, window, and painting crews are second to none. Our roofers have worked for us for over ten years, while our siding and paint crews have been with us for seven. I have retained these crews because they meet or exceed my high expectations.
In the new construction industry it is understood that the trades do not get paid until they have finished their portion of the job. I have carried this idea into the way we do business. I do not expect the customer to pay until we are finished and they are satisfied with the job, unless the customer has purchased a non-returnable “special order” product. As a customer, you run the risk of being cheated by your contractor if you give him money before the work is even started. Sometimes roofing contractors are not “solvent” and, if they ask for money up front, it is sometimes a sign that they do not have adequate cash flow. If this is the case, they may not be there for you in the event you have a warranty issue. If you do choose to do business with a roofing contractor (or any contractor) be sure to check them out on websites like the Better Business Bureau, Angie’s List, and Katy Pro/Check-A-Pro.
Finally, as a construction manager, in order to run a tight schedule you must have people who are willing to make a commitment as to when they will be on the job, when they will be finished, and how much it will cost. As a contractor, Colony Roofing & Exteriors we make the same promise to our customers: always on time and at the agreed, contracted price.
So, when the time comes for a new roof, or for siding, painting or windows, give us a call at 281-347-4438 and let us make you another 100% satisfied Colony Roofing & Exteriors customer!
