What To Look For In a Roofing Company

Roofing Company

Selecting the right roofer can change everything about the project of installing, replacing, or repairing your roof. Yet, knowing how to find the correct roofer will be a confusing task if you don’t know what to look for. That is why we have made a list of things to look for in a roofing company that you can use. This will help you select the roofing company that is local and within your budget. 

Here are the things you should focus on when looking for a roofing contractor or company:

  • Business licenses 
  • Certifications and credentials
  • Local references and testimonials
  • Insurance
  • Warranties

Let’s look at these points in more depth.

1. Insurance 

The roofing company should always have insurance to cover any mistakes or injuries on their part. When you check the website, you might see some of the insurance certificates on display; but you can also call the company to request information about their insurances and confirm validity. 

2. Go Local

A local business that knows your area and community, and more importantly, has also serviced your area, is going to be better than the company far outside your region. Not only does this mean you may know someone who has used said a company in the past, but you can also trust the testimonials and reviews on their site or other rating sites, you will know whether they have an established business. 

A local company that has been around for a while is also better than a new one. Many roofing contractors will come and go—and this can be problematic if there is a problem. If the contractor leaves the area, how will they own up their warranties or insurance? So go local. 

3. Communication

A transparent and honest company is going to be one that communicates well. When you call, how long does it take to reply? Do they return your calls? Is the representative friendly and informative? Do they follow through with promises, like calling you back or sending requested information? If you feel concerned about what they are saying or if the interaction upsets you somehow, then you shouldn’t use that company. 

Communication is key to everything. 

1. Read the Contract

You should always take your time when reading the contractor. Upon receiving the written estimate, make sure it has everything you discussed, even oral promises that the contractor has made. Discuss anything that is missing to prevent future confusion. Ask for explanations of anything you don’t understand. Be sure to hold onto the final copy of the contract. Never sign a contract with a company that tells you to pay for everything before the job is completed. 

When it comes to your roof, one of the most important pieces of the house, you should only choose the best roofing company in your area. Remember to search for insurance and warranty information on their website, get reviews and references, and ask the company your questions. If they don’t live up to your expectations, move on. There are better companies out there!

PM Modi was Seen Plogging at Mamallapuram Beach

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is a name that needs no introduction. He is a man of words, what he said, he does. As we know he is so strict regarding preserving Mother Nature and preserving our environment. That’s why he encourages everyone to avoid the use of plastics in daily life and he is the man behind launching Swacch Bharat Mission in India to encourage everyone to make India neat and clean. Recently, we also him on a cleaning spree at Tamil Nadu’s beach, Mamallapuram ahead of meeting with Chinese President, Xi Jinping. Most of the individuals have appraised Modi for this act while some are making fun of him by saying, cleaning plastic with plastic and some other comments.

PM Modi also releases a video on Twitter while cleaning the trash-

Even PM Modi also released the video on Twitter where he could be seen picking up plastic garbage from the beach and other kinds of waste from while doing his morning walk which got viral on social media. He was wearing a black kurta and dhoti, walking barefoot and picking up litter very nicely.

Modi on Twitter Said

On his Twitter profile, he mentioned, “Plogging at a beach in Mamallapuram this morning. It lasted for over 30 minutes. Also handed over my ‘collection’ to Jeyaraj, who is a part of the hotel staff? Let us ensure our public places are clean and tidy! Let us also ensure we remain fit and healthy.”

Seeing his Post on Twitter, fisherman K. Vinod who belongs to the Ocean awareness group, responded, “When the Prime Minister can do it, why can’t ordinary people too.

One of the Mamallapuram residents appraises Modi’s Act

Appraising the act, Mamallapuram resident, Aine Edwards had also posted several photographs where she says how clean the town and beach looks after the summit. “It just shows that the town has the potential to be clean. The humans, who cleaned it up so beautifully, did a good job. But can they keep it that way?” she asked.

Actor Prakash Raj criticized his exercise

Some of them also criticized this act of Modi, Actor Prakash Raj on Twitter said,

Other people said that the beach was already clean since it’s a tourist place. Modi is just trying to raise his name that’s it. For example Kancheepuram District Collector, P. Ponniah said the plastic must have washed up onto the beach. “Since the beach is visited by tourists, it is usually kept clean. We had also cleaned up the beach before and during the summit,” he said. Here, he means to criticize his exercise.

As PM Modi has arranged an informal summit with Chinese President, Xi Jinping, he also discussed with him lots of other areas of concern and issues that are affecting our environment and nature. They both met at Mamallapuram and held the second round of talks at Taj Fishermen’s Cove in Kovalam.

This year while giving a speech on the occasion of Independence Day, PM Modi had announced a campaign to make the country free by not using any kind of plastic. Now, we need to wait and watch how many of us will follow what he said to keep our country clean.

Many people are telling that he is pretending to clean the beach. For all those haters, Team GudStory wants to give a simple msg which is the same in the following tweet..

Finance Ministry Decides To Shut Down Two Telecoms BSNL and MTNL Putting The Lives of Over 2 lakh Jobs at Stake

Finance Ministry Decides To Shut Down Two Telecoms BSNL and MTNL

The two of the most prominent broadband companies, Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited (BSNL) and Mahanagar Telephone Nigam Limited (MTNL) are going to be shut down as decided by the Finance Ministry. Well, this news has made many people sad and disheartened. The reason behind this is their love and attachment towards these service operators they have for decades that they can’ afford to forget. As per the reports by the Financial Express, the two public sector undertakings are now finding difficult to sustain amid the competition between private companies that have taken over them. This is why the government has finally decided to shut them down permanently which will leave people working here in the lurch.

The report also tells that the ministry has rejected the proposal kept by the two telcos of pumping in a massive amount of Rs. 74,000 crore to revive them. The ministry has told that the total expense in closing both the companies would be less than Rs. 95,000 crore including the payment to their 1.65 lakh employees for the voluntary retirement scheme and its debt repayment.

While the proposal to shut down these two companies might be very surprising for many but for some it was obvious as we all know how hard it was for BSNL to survive between too many competing companies in the private sector. BSNL has been struggling for very long and even its employees were also not paid for a long time due to their incapability. Last month, it was reported that BSNL had asked 50% of its employees to resign at their will. Even, MTNL is also making defaults for not paying their employees on time from some months.

Both of these companies have a huge employee base. BSNL has 1.76 lakh employees across India while MTNL has around 22,000 employees and the total monthly salary expenses of BSNL are in the range of Rs. 750-850 crore while that of MTNL is around Rs. 160 crores which they are not able to pay right now.

As soon as this news came out, people became emotional and they start outraging their comments on Twitter for the companies and their attachment towards them.

6. Children were made ambassadors of Swachh Bharat

Many small children were also made brand ambassadors of cleanliness mission, Swachh Bharat for Indore. The songs were also recorded by the children regarding the garbage collection and were played so that other people would get to know about this. Even they use rap to make it more attractive and attention-seeking.

Not only these measures have made the city beautiful and clean, but also the government efforts and some strict policies related to garbage collection have made people attentive. Those who do not pay attention to it were also levied a hefty fine and those who followed were given awards. This is due to their combined efforts, Indore was ranked the cleanest city in India, according to Swachh Survekshan which is an initiative of the Urban Development Ministry.

So, by following these ways we can also make our city clean and beautiful like Indore. Let’s take a pledge that we will not litter and try to save our environment and mother earth.
