There have been, in the last two years, locally three tornado systems which have come through the area. Suddenly, roofers came from all over, and it seemed from all professions, as many of these roofers had no credentials. Sadly, many of these fly by night roofers took advantage of people who knew no better in their time of need. Local roofers were quite the opposite. They, of course, we are as busy as they could have possibly have been. It did, in some cases, take a while for the local roofers to be reached, but the wait was worthwhile. There were very few complaints with local roofers, while people were howling about getting robbed by the out of towners. Even though it did take quite a while for local roofers to answer all the calls that they received, they worked steadily until the town was finally dried in. In many cases this took the form of giant blue tarps pulled over entire roofs, some of these to stay for weeks or even months until the local roofers could get back to finish the job. Local roofers seemed to work night and day during the weeks after these storms. They were in such demand that they must have gone sleepless on many occasions. Oddly enough, even though it may have seemed tempting, not one complaint was heard about the local roofers pricing patterns. Of course, this absolutely opposite in the case of the migrant workers. They would act quickly, charging huge repair bills, doing shoddy work, and being gone before it started raining again. All of this work had to be redone by the local roofers, of course, an added expense to the homeowner.
