Owning a home comes with a long list of responsibilities. After all, an investment that large deserves the best care. And residential roofing experts Massey Roofing Services LLC is here to inform homeowners their roof should be at the top of their list – but there are a few things to know before investing in a roofing contractor. Read on to learn more.
The Sunshine State of the US – Florida – received its nickname for a reason. With an average of 230 days of sunshine a year, it makes it one of the most sunny states. But apart from a year full of bright days, Florida is also known as the lightning and hurricane capital of the US. So not only do you need to account for the effects of high temperatures on your home, but you also need to protect it against the harsher aspects of Florida’s weather: hurricanes.
The hurricane season is underway, which began on June 1st and runs through until November 30th, and the 2023 Atlantic Hurricane Season Outlook by NOAA predicts 12-17 storms, 5-9 hurricanes, and 1-4 major hurricanes.
As a homeowner, have you recently had your roof inspected in preparation for hurricane season? If not, this Florida-based roofing company can help.
Enter Massey Roofing Services LLC, a veteran-owned and operated roofing company certified through GAF – America’s leading roofing and waterproofing materials manufacturer. Founded in 2017 as a one-person operation by Chase Massey, he brought on his lifelong friend Zachary Buchanan in 2021 as co-founder, and ever since the duo has become one of the best in Florida. With over 150 employees on the team, and upwards of 50 projects completed every week, it’s no surprise they’re the number one choice for Florida homeowners.
“Because of all the hurricanes and the wind load ratings we get down here and the consistent storms we get, we’re held to a higher standard than I’d say anywhere else in the United States. So you really got to know what you’re doing down here,” Massey emphasizes.
And with a wind load rating as high as 180 miles an hour, you need a company that provides the best quality service and materials. Two things the roofing company prioritizes.
Massey Roofing Services serves over 10 Floridian cities, including Lake City, Palm Coast, Palatka, Jacksonville, Jacksonville Beach, Lakeside, Gainesville, Fernandina Beach, Saint Augustine, Atlantic Beach, Palm Valley, Orlando, Daytona, and Tampa. So wherever you’re located in Florida state, Massey and Buchanan can repair, replace, or simply inspect your roof.
And did I mention, they offer detailed and efficient consultations on the house? And you know what that means? There’s no excuse to not get your roof prepped and prepared for whatever weather this year brings – which should be on your list of top priorities.
Regardless of who you choose to service your roof, there are a few things to be aware of when it comes to investing in the right contractor. And a big part of that is a contractor’s dedication to providing fast and reliable service no matter what, which can be hard to come by.
“It happens quite often with a lot of different contractors where they’ll push off a leak for a couple of days, and by the time they get there, instead of fixing a minor leak that would have cost you almost nothing if you went out there in a timely manner, turns into them having to paint ceilings, paint walls, do mediation, repair, and more,” Buchanan discusses.
“A 24-hour turnaround time on active leaks, or any type of damages or problems that arise is what we always aim for,” Massey continues, and without a quick response time, “it could go from a simple $100 fix to thousands and thousands of dollars if we didn’t have that turnaround time. It could start raining out of nowhere and a small little hole can turn into a massive leak with mold everywhere,” he highlights.
Your home is your haven, and the first line of defense is your roof. It not only protects your home from the harsh exterior variables, but it also keeps you and your family safe: aspects Massey Roofing Services prioritizes with every job completed no matter how big or small.
Another important part of safeguarding your roof is choosing the right material without any risks down the line.
As a preferred vendor with GAF, the roofing company primarily encourages the use of GAF HDZ shingles as they offer an amazing 50-year manufacturer’s warranty and a 10-year workmanship warranty.
“Even if we went out of business tomorrow, the customer is still covered by GAF,” Buchanan explains. “Also, it has an unlimited wind rating,” and being out in Florida with the highest wind rating in the country, Buchanan encourages clients to choose this option to secure their investment and home safety.
The entire process is streamlined to service homeowners quickly, without sacrificing quality. Massey and Buchanan’s highly trained and experienced team makes the experience stress-free in 4 steps:
- Consultation ― They listen to your needs, wants, budget, and goals.
- Inspection ― They perform a thorough inspection of your roof and generate an estimate.
- Proposal ― They present their plan and estimate and cater it to meet your expectations.
- Execution ― They start and complete the project with skill and the utmost care.
“Our client’s satisfaction is our primary concern and the driving force behind our success,” states Massey Roofing Services. And their 4.9-star review rating on Google proves their commitment to excellence on all fronts.
