1ST- Did you know? Asphalt shingles takes 300 YEARS to break down? Now That I have your attention....Read on...Reason's why choosing asphalt might not be a great idea....Not environmentally friendly at all....Still it can be a perfectly good material to work with, however, not disposed of correctly ....Well, that can be a problem....Read on my friend and watch the video below after.
With all of the roof Replacements going on in the San Antonio area, we have seen a number of different ways that unscrupulous roofing contractors have been trying to cut the costs.
Unfortunately this short video that I took came from the Timber-wood area just earlier this week. These people have decided to use there front lawn as a asphalt roofing dump.
I was quickly reminded while sometimes we are not always the cheapest estimate that you will receive it's because we do things right.
Looking at how some people choose to dispose of shingles is shameful to the state and the people that live here. One of the ways that these get rich quick roofing companies do is come in scrape your roof and dump it wherever they can find. If these people that are willing to poison the ground that they live on or even their neighbor for nothing what do you think the quality and workmanship of their work it is?
It's important that if you need to save money you need to understand where you're saving the money from. Are they hiring unskilled labor? Are they short cutting materials? Where is it that you're losing value?
The adage that has been said so many times has been known around the world you get what you pay for.
The bottom line is we are definitely not the cheapest. However we are ones that strive to do it correctly. Its shameful to see locals doing this type of thing to our ground and we hope by drawing attention to this that it stops the problem
