We Only Hire The Best…

Because Even The Best Products In The World Will Fail If They Are Not Installed Correctly…

In the world of roofing (and home improvement) it’s the guy holding the hammer that is going to make all the difference. Hire a top-notch quality craftsman and you are going to get top-notch quality construction. It’s that simple.

That’s why it drives us nuts when we see other roofing companies ruthlessly cut costs by hiring untrained and unskilled “day-laborers.” Don’t get me wrong. I don’t think there is anything wrong with hiring day-laborers per say… I’m just saying they are best left for demolition and clean up—NOT INSTALLATION.

Roofs are complicated. They take expertise to install them correctly. In fact, according to a joint report by the National Roofing Contractors Association & Clemson University:

“Even though winds in hurricanes Bertha and Fran were well below expected design speeds, shingle damage was widespread and frequently severe, resulting in interior water damage. Field investigations concluded that damage was caused by inadequate workmanship, standards, and design. Some shingles were not installed properly, according to the manufacturer’s recommendations. For example, often shingles were attached with too few and/or improperly positioned nails.”

As you can see, the proper installation of a roof, using the manufacturers recommendations, and the proper materials is the only way you can ensure a roof that is going to last. It’s why we only hire the absolute best roofers we can find. Then we do everything humanly possible to keep them on the Hippo Roofing Team.

At the end of the day, it’s our roofing crews that are going to install your roof. And they are going to install it flawlessly. It’s because of our trust in them that we back our roofs with a REAL LIFETIME 50 year warranty that has teeth and bite…not loopholes.

If you’re ready to upgrade to a permanent roofing solution, give us a call. We’d love to hear from you.
