Roof Repair: Seek Integrity, not just Instant Quotes.

Get a Free Estimate from Total Construction ServicesWhile the storm season can seemingly produce hail out of nowhere, it also produces another sudden phenomenon: An outbreak of advertising leading you to websites offering fast free bids, instant quotes, instant roofer comparison lists and overall instant alleviation from your worries as a homeowner with roof damage.

And while these websites can sometimes yield a few good roofers with a click of your mouse, the fastest option is not always the best. Wise consumers know how to sort quality from quantity when they’re comparing which roofer is best for them—and can still fit an expert repair into a busy roofing schedule when it seems as though several contractors are backed up for months.

Be enticed by solid repair, not speedy repair.

While you’re understandably looking for an available roofer fast, it’s important to reiterate: Always look for the indicators of a great roofer first and foremost. Does the company have a good local reputation that’s backed by awards and testimonials? Do they offer a solid warranty? Do they have experience that proves their longevity in the industry? Do they work with an insurance company who can vouch for them? The roof is a literal investment over your head. It’s important to have it done right—and you’ll be much happier down the road.

You can still have both—quality repair and no waiting list.

After you’ve weeded down your options by asking the above questions, you can fine-tune your comparisons from there. And if the roofers you contact are too busy to serve you now, there’s a smart option not widely known to the public called a third party—a network of local, regional and national roofing contractors who serve much like an elite national guard wherever roofers are needed (especially right after heavy storms). And you can always ask your insurance—as well as the roofers you’re contacting—for companies that they can refer.

So if you’ve received recent hail damage to your roof, chin up. The roofing industry is evolving fast, better options are becoming available, and there’s no longer a need to settle for speedy subpar options. You can still get the best service for your roof—on time and on budget!

Storm or hail damage to the roof? A third party manager can work miracles.

Total Construction Services Roofing Restoration ExpertsWe’ve all heard the old saying, “the calm after the storm.” But can there be peace of mind after storm damage to the roof, especially when it seems like all roofers are suddenly overbooked and unavailable? Thankfully, there’s an answer. It’s a smarter, lesser-known approach to gain fast access to a top network of roofing contractors in the area, a better warranty, and most importantly, the level of repair your home deserves.

Why a third party should be a first choice.

In a nutshell, a third party management repair program is a network of local, regional and national roofing contractors who serve much like an elite national guard wherever roofers are needed (especially after heavy storms). This roundtable of roofing experts have all undergone a rigorous credentialing process and have delivered proven craftsmanship and customer service on every job. Only the best pre-qualified roofers get in, and by contacting or registering with a third party, you’ll reap major benefits:

Faster response. There’s often a shortage of roofing manpower for weeks, or even months, after a storm. A third party solves this by managing a network of readily available contractors.

An extended warranty.
Up to five years, which is currently the best roofing warranty in the industry.

A watchdog for you.
Above all, a third party serves as a manager on all ends. They manage the roofing contractor assigned to you to ensure everything is inspected accurately and repaired on time, on code. But they also bring more experience to the job, enabling them to handle necessary paperwork and work with adjusters to pinpoint exaction. There’s no hassle, guesswork, or improper estimates when a third party is managing all sides.

An emerging trend in the roofing industry.

A third party management solution stemmed recently from a legitimate need for a better industry-wide solution. In a sense, it’s a modern repair to the roofing industry as a whole. Homeowners love it, insurers love it, and it’s a great way to ensure you receive better, prompter repairs after a storm—whether it’s your roof, siding, or gutters.

Total Construction Services is proud to claim that we are an approved third party roofing and restoration contractor, providing acclaimed roof, restoration and repair services across the Omaha, Norfolk and Lincoln metro areas since 1987.

Looking for a good construction contractor after storm damage? Contact your insurance agent.

Few things are closer to the heart than home sweet home. So when you’re dealing with damage to your house—whether wind, rain, hail, fire damage, water damage or disaster—you want the repairs done right, on time, and without hassle. Fret not. You can put your insurance company to use, along with a few other rules of thumb, to help you find a proven contractor who will work on your home as if it were their own, and for an honest price.

It’s a numbers game.

We all know that insurance companies, by nature, are careful and sticklers for accuracy. But that’s a good thing. In 2013, they’re measuring ways to satisfy customers even better. They’re scoring customer satisfaction right down to the decimal. That means insurance providers are shortening their lists and becoming stricter on who remains in their network of preferred contractors. Only the best ones make the cut, and as the market only grows more competitive, today’s insurance companies won’t gamble with a contractor who’s anything less than legendary at their specialty.

The driving force behind this trend is called policyholder retention, a.k.a., your happiness as a customer. Your utmost satisfaction is the goal of good insurance, as well as the good contractors they keep in their proverbial rolodex. So if you receive, or request, a list of preferred contractors from your insurance company, you can be assured that they mean good business. Because in 2013, it’s not about who they know; it’s about who produces impeccable results for customers, again and again.

Other signs that lead to stellar contractors.

While insurance is a good start to finding an A-list of construction contractors, here are some other ways to help narrow it down when you need a tried-and-true specialist in restoration, roofing, or repair:

A good reputation.
Has the company earned local awards to prove itself as a standout against the competition?

A solid warranty.This not only signifies a company’s faith in the high quality of its own work, but commitment to the satisfaction of each customer.

Testimonials. While it’s important to find a roofer who’s certified, it’s also important to locate solid customer testimonials that lend credibility to a company’s level of care, friendliness, and timeliness getting the job done. Angie’s List is also a reliable source.

Local dependability. If you’re looking for service in Omaha, Bellevue, Papillion or surrounding areas, Total Construction has been a trusted contractor in the metro since 1987. Winner of the 2010 Better Business Bureau Integrity award, we serve each customer’s exact needs and while working seamlessly with insurance companies through our insurance claims department. We believe it’s important to seek the best contractor, and we believe we can compete with the best.
