What You Can Learn in the Roof Leak Detective

When P.I. Roofing was founded in 2001, we noticed one of the most rewarding aspects of our business was helping home and building owners make smart decisions about their roofs. In fact, over our years in business it has become clear that the emphasis we place on educating our customers is a key difference between P.I. Roofing and our competitors. While our face-to-face conversations with our customers has proven to be extremely effective in informing them about proper roof maintenance and care, we wanted to do more. In 2014, owners Joel and Veronica Johnson wrote “The Roof Leak Detective,” a comprehensive guide for anyone who owns and must maintain a roof. We’re only a phone call away, but by releasing our own book, we knew we could better help our customers:

Why Many Roofing Companies Replace Roofs That Could Be Repaired

One of the primary reasons P.I. Roofing was founded was to prevent home and building owners from paying for a completely new roof when their current one only needed a few repairs (you can read more on that topic in last week’s blog). Unfortunately, most roofing companies hold the practice of giving a roof a quick look, finding a problem and telling the customer the entire roof needs to be replaced. We often shock customers when we tell them we can fix their roof, because other roofing companies have told them a complete roof replacement is the only way to fix their problems. There are a couple reasons other companies do this, and it comes down to more than just money. Roofing companies would rather replace your roof than repair it because …

It takes time to do a proper roof evaluation.

Getting up on your roof, properly evaluating it and pinpointing the problems is a time-consuming task. While it’s often what’s best for your pocketbook, other roofing companies simply don’t want to spend the time and manpower to do a complete inspection. At P.I. Roofing, you (and your wallet) are always top-of-mind, and we want your experience with us to be a positive one. We always do a full evaluation of each roof we work on, and our evaluating technicians perform a 17-point inspection to ensure they don’t miss anything.

It’s more work to do repairs.

With the added time of an inspection also comes the need to look over the results and formulate a repair plan, which is much more specific and nuanced than a replacement. While putting on a full new roof is still a lot of work, it’s much more cut-and-dry than customized repairs.

Roofers make more money on a roof replacement than a repair.

Finally, it is more economically beneficial for a roofing company to replace a roof rather than repair it – if you look at the exchange as a one-time transaction. At P.I. Roofing, we want to build longstanding relationships with customers that trust us, which in the end is more economically beneficial for everyone.

Why We Founded P.I. Roofing

Every company, from the smallest startups to the biggest corporations, has a story of how and why it was founded, and we believe this story says a lot about the company’s character and principles.

In 2001, Joel and Veronica Johnson decided to found P.I. Roofing to address the problems they had witnessed within the roofing industry, and because they knew they could provide a better product and experience for customers. Specifically, they wanted …

Signs of a Sun Damaged Roof in Arkansas

Most roofs, particularly those without much tree cover, are exposed to high amounts of sunlight. In the hot summer months, the effects of this exposure drastically increase along with the temperature. To keep any serious roof sun damage problems at bay, look for the below signs. While it doesn’t necessarily mean extensive repairs are in order, you may need new shingles or covering to help your roof last and prevent further problems.
