Choosing the Right Roofing Contractor from ABC7 News
Channel 7 ABC’s news report on choosing a roofing contractor. The reporter interviews a few customers that have experienced poor workmanship and choose the wrong roofing companies.
They chose Preferred Roofing as a reputable roofer to interview about getting the roofing repair done right.
The news story offers advice on hiring a roofer, and the questions to ask. This story in the news features a Woodland Hills homeowner that has been waiting weeks to get her roof repaired — that had a new roof installed only two years before and thought it would last 20 years, only to find out she choose the wrong contractor and had to redo the roof again, this can be avoided.
If you wait until the rainy season to repair your roof, you will likely be waiting longer than you want. Quality, reputable roofing contractors book up when the rain hits. This sometimes forces unsuspecting homeowners to choose an unlicensed roofer/contractor. ABC7 urges patience to get your roof fixed if you wait until the rainy season — sometimes many weeks.
We offer emergency tarping service that holds off the rain entering the house until our crews can get to your home. Simply, it’s best to get your roof inspected and repaired before 1000’s of other Los Angeles and San Fernando Valley residents are needing the same thing.
Consumer Alert from ABC 7 News: Unscrupulous Roofers
This video was broadcast on ABC 7 as a consumer alert about unscrupulous roofers. In the video a company was hired as a “Licensed Contractor”, only to find out they were not licensed and failed to complete the project. This resulted in severe damage to to the property owners home which could have been avoided.
Hiring a LICENSED roofing contractor is a very important decision. It can be very costly if you do not use due diligence and choose wisely.
A licensed contractor must carry up to date Workers’ Compensation Insurance for his employees. The contractor should also carry liability insurance to protect your home and its contents. This gives you, the homeowner, the protection you deserve. In this news story, even IF a licensed contractor is hired, it may have not been enough due to damage to the home’s contents.
Roofers that say they are licensed can be checked out at the State of California’s Contractors License Board to see if they possess a current license, if they are properly insured, and if they have any current actions against them.
You can check out our license on the State License Board here.
Preparing Your Roof For Wet Weather After Dry Season
NBC4 News reporters discusses the problems with rain coming after a particularly dry season. The reporter contacts David Paine of Preferred Roofing Inc. for information.
In the video David talks about how the best time to call for a roof inspection or repair is BEFORE the rains start during the dry season. The reason is because quality roofing contractors book up very quickly once the rain starts and it means waiting weeks. Although, Preferred Roofing does offer Emergency Tarping to get you by until we can get to your roof for repairs, it is better to prevent the problems in the first place.

That’s when the customer called in Preferred Roofing, Inc. a State of California Licensed roofing contractor to fix the problem.
The news reporter asks questions about reputable roofing contractors and has chosen Preferred Roofing, Inc. to get the professionals advice. David Paine, the owner of Preferred Roofing, tells the KCAL9 news that choosing a reputable licensed, insured contractor is very important, problems like this are very common.
