Here’s Why All Parties Benefit:
Registration Will Protect The Customer
Only reputable roofing companies registered in Missouri will be able to work on residential or commercial roofs. Fly-by-night storm chasers descend on a stricken area and will “take the money and run” without completing the job, while leaving bogus contact information. Customers often need their roofing jobs redone from the damage caused by a storm chaser and the insurance companies may only pay once. And it’s not just storm chasers. Large out-of-state companies also “chase” storm damage. Many “locals” decide to start in roofing in times of storms. Other trades even try to get into roofing.
Registration Will Protect Residential and Commercial
We want to see legislation that will ask contractors to be registered with the state. Many of the same requirements of registration are the way reputable roofing contractors have been doing business for years, many of whom are fourth and fifth generation family businesses, with A+ BBB ratings. So it won’t hurt, change or impact how they do business, but it will keep out the companies who give all roofers a bad name.
Registration Will Benefit Missouri
Fewer lawsuits, fewer consumer complaints, less work for the Attorney General’s office.
