Let me share a story that just happened last week. I was outside filling a bird feeder and my neighbor was talking to a contractor about his roof needing to be replaced; the neighbor suggested I have his ‘friend’ check my roof as well; since it was free I said ‘Go ahead’, knowing I’d just had JH Exteriors do repairs to the roof a yr ago and it was fine. Wrong; the guy came down telling me I ‘desperately’ needed a new roof and additional repairs! He scared the hell out of me; so I called my insurance company and asked for an adjuster to come out and look. The ‘other contractor’ was here as well; and –amazingly – I did NOT need a new roof; the young man was here for 1 ½ hours checking and explaining everything to me (in down to earth language); gave me all of the info/diagram in a folder. I had already told the other contractor if I needed a new roof, I had someone else in mind to do the work. The adjuster said the repairs were just fine and I only had one small area of shingle that should be replaced. I told the other contractor his practices were at best frightening and at worst dishonest. I explained I would have the repair done by JH Exteriors. I must have told this young man three times that if there was work to do, it was not going to be his company; but he persisted. He lost not only a potential customer or reference, I asked him to leave my home. JH Exteriors is completely aboveboard, honest, reliable, and do excellent work. They do not use scare or scam tactics to get your business; they are legitimate and responsible. Don’t allow this type of thing to happen to you; it was despicable of the other company to scare the hell out of an old woman like me.
