Now You Too Can Get A
'No-Hassle' Md Roof Estimate
Delivered Right to Your Computer
Using the Internet to Deliver Your Roof Estimate Is So Convenient;
You Save Time, Money, and Headaches!
Yes, that's me, Bill Thomas, in the middle of another roof analysis and
estimate -- making sure that you get all of the pictures, videos, diagrams, and other information you
need so you can make a truly informed decision regarding your new roof.
So what's up with the computer on the roof? Well, sending your
personalized estimate via the internet is the best way for me to get you the information you need
right away, so that you can get your new roofing project going and avoid damage to your
The #1 Problem With Getting Roofing
Let's face it, getting roof estimates can be a real hassle. Meeting with three
or four roofing contractors can take hours, days, or sometimes even a week or more! That's a big wasted
chunk out of your busy schedule. It's time consuming but it doesn't have to be.
Plus, people tell me that half of the roofers they called never even show up! So, sometimes you're
at the mercy of picking from the ones that just make the appointment.
Problem #2: "Who Can I Trust to Tell Me What I Really
Can you believe that many roofing salesman never even get up on the roof to make an
inspection? I can't believe it either. How would they ever have a clue what hidden problems are lurking
under the shingles, flashings, vents, or fascia for that matter? I don't know.
Do you think they charge the top price, expecting to replace all those
things? Or do you think they could "lowball" the price and then hit you with "the big surprise" upcharge when
they're actually on the roof doing the work? I know that both of these things happen because in my 30+ years
of being in the roofing business, I've seen it -- and heard about it -- a lot.
Problem #3: "What Kind of Installation Will I Really
It surprises me that when I ask homeowners if their roofer did a good job, they
respond, "I don't know -- we'll see when it rains." That's a lot of pressure wondering if your roof was
done right, and worrying about bad weather. Especially if you've had a bad experience or two with
Having said that, we actually repair lots of roofs that are less than five (5) years
old. Sometimes, the installer can't even fix the problem, if he can be found . . . so the homeowner
calls us. We have plenty of photos in our "Pictures" section on this website that prove it.
Don't put yourself in that position.
Here's How Our System Solves These Problems and Saves You
It's Simple, Convenient, and Provides Verification, Too.
Unlike many roofing salesmen, I always get up on the roof and inspect every
square foot. While I'm inspecting, I'm also taking high quality digital pictures and video to show
you things you need to know to make better, more informed decisions.
It's all documented and you get to actually see it online!
Personalized Online Pictures and Video Help You See What's
I'll immediately process the pictures and video put them online where they're easy for you
to see. Then I will send a link to your email. All you have to do is click on the link, and all of
the information you need will be there. Plus, you can share the link with others; or pass it along
to friends who may also need our roofing services.
It's much easier to make smarter decisions when you're informed and not under pressure. You can review
your material in comfort, wherever and whenever you wish . . . and because I am posting your pictures and
video on "your own special web page", no large files are being transferred by email.
Your computer won't slow down to a crawl or be at risk of being infected with a virus. And, you
won't have to deal with any "High Pressure" salesman. That might be the best part of all . . .
Our "Fixed Pricing" Policy Eliminates Costly
Detailed pricing information will be addressed by our "fixed price proposal". There will be NO
upsells, NO add-ons, NO surprises, or any other type of "monkey business". There will be NO hourly rate
charges or other variable pricing methods. If there's a risk of questionable plywood that we can't
see until we remove some shingles, we'll quote a fixed price per square foot beforehand and then completely
document the replacement with photos (after talking to you first, of course).
Please don't ever sign a contract with anyone that doesn't completely close all of the "loopholes" concerning
price. And please stay away from those "bottom feeders" that sell on low price only. There is usually a
reason that they have to cut their prices way down to get the work.
Follow Up Pictures And A Ten (10) Year No Leak
Guarantee Offer Security and Peace-Of-Mind.
OK, now that we've solved the first two problems, let's concentrate on the follow
up. Over the years many of my customers have enjoyed seeing "close ups" of their completed roofing
work. So a couple of years ago I just made before, during, and after pictures our standard
procedure. Folks really like looking at the quality of the work and verifying that all of the work was
done right, as promised.
Plus, we really don't want you to risk getting up on your roof just to have a look. Leave that to a
In additional to the shingle manufacturer's materials warranty, we issue you a "Ten (10) Year No Leak Guarantee"
that covers all of the labor required for us to fix unexpected leaks in the first ten years after our
installation. No questions asked and no strings attached!
Plus Limited Time Free Upgrades Totalling Up to $1,997.00 . . . Or More!

"I like the fact that I can come home from work knowing my roof is
repaired, and I didn't have to do it myself. After my busy day to day schedule, I do not have
time or the desire to climb around on my roof fixing wind damaged shingles-We live in a
high-wind area with a steep pitched roof, and lose shingle tabs each year. The trick is to
repair the damaged shingles before the wood becomes exposed, wet and eventually rot.

website that showed the details of a number of before, after, and in-progress roofing projects via
photos and annotations. This showed how various projects were completed and really gave me a good
idea of the professionalism and thoroughness of Bill’s approach to the job. That expectation was
borne out fully by the work Bill did in making the repair, and being able to see exactly what he
had done, through the documentary photos he took during the project, was most interesting and

efficiently, and with an engineer’s attention to detail and quality.

found the builders had not properly attached a stand pipe that led to the damage, and a
potentially dangerous carbon monoxide build up in the attic -- something my wife and I had
never expected. Mr. Thomas documented the damage and repairs -- clearly showing the
missing seals on the stand pipe -- with a digital camera.
