Customers Trust Stonewater After Hailstorms Hit During Pandemic

Stonewater Roofing would like to thank its customers new and old for trusting us with your roofing needs. From emergency tarp services to complete roof replacements, the company saw more than 170 contracts signed during the month of April. This is a 20 percent improvement over the previous year, and it comes at an unusual time as our nation grips with a global pandemic.

As previously stated, Stonewater Roofing temporarily ceased all door-to-door sales efforts in response to the coronavirus threat. Gov. Greg Abbott ordered all Texans to remain at home and practice safe social distancing

However, while these measures were in effect, cities across East Texas and western Louisiana saw multiple severe storms. There were reports of golf ball sized hail in areas like Nacogdoches and Tyler on Easter morning. Bossier City saw softball sized hail less than two weeks later.

Curtis Jackson, Vice President of Sales for Stonewater Roofing, explained, “The Easter storm in Tyler was followed by two rounds of storms in Nacogdoches and a pretty large one that stretched from Marshall to Benton.”

In the days that followed, a massive number of homes and businesses sought help from Stonewater Roofing. With stay-at-home orders in effect, many customers took advantage of Remote Roofing by Stonewater. This allows the roofing process to take place with no direct contact with salesmen or contractors, in most cases.

With state and local governments beginning to ease some restrictions, Stonewater Roofing plans to resume door-to-door sales in the near future. “At this time, we are still adhering to the safety practices put in place with the stay-at-home order,” Jackson said. “I think you will see us back on the streets in mid-May.”

This, we hope, will allow us to more easily bring some peace of mind to property owners throughout the area.

Stonewater Roofing Still Hiring During Coronavirus Crisis

Unemployment claims skyrocketed across the State of Texas last month, climbing more than 600 percent according to the newest data from the Texas Workforce Commission. However, while many companies are releasing workers and cutting costs during the coronavirus crisis, Stonewater Roofing is actually looking to hire new talent.

More than 460,000 people throughout the state filed for unemployment benefits in March. “If we continue at this pace, we are on track to help the same number of Texans that filed for all of 2019 in just a little over a month’s time,” Cisco Gamez, spokesman for the Texas Workforce Commission, told The Dallas Morning News.

Those who have recently lost their jobs — and have strong sales experience — are encouraged to contact Stonewater Roofing about starting a career in the roofing industry. We are looking for honest, self-disciplined, motivated individuals to join our team as we continue to tackle projects in the Tyler and Longview communities.

“We want to find people who are passionate about a career in roof sales, people who want to help out others,” said Dianna Gregg, director of operations for Stonewater Roofing, “but we also want to offer a helping hand to those who may have just recently lost their jobs. We want to get them back on their feet and give them a way to provide for their families again.”

As an essential business that provides safety and protection to East Texas residents and business owners, statewide stay-at-home orders have not prevented us from offering roof services during this uncertain time. While our traditional door-to-door sales have been temporarily halted, our sales staff is still communicating with both new and existing customers, and the ‘Remote Roofing by Stonewater‘ method has made the process of getting a new roof completely hassle-free.

“The virus has really shifted how our sales team does business, but our guys are not missing a beat,” Gregg added. “They’ve done an excellent job at keeping in touch with our customers, following up with everyone and visiting any of the properties where they might be needed — and new technology has given us a way to ensure everyone’s safety.”

Stonewater Roofing offers health and retirement benefits, flexible schedules, advancement opportunities, and all with absolutely no commission cap. Your salary is based on your sales performance, and your earning potential is unlimited. If this sounds like a perfect career for you, contact us today.

Stonewater Halts Door-To-Door Sales, But Work Continues

With the safety of the community and our employees in mind, Stonewater Roofing has halted all door-to-door sales efforts at this time. However, as an essential business in the construction industry, we continue to have staff members in the office and crews in the field to help area homes and businesses stay protected from the elements during this time of crisis.

In compliance with government orders, sales operations were ceased in East Texas counties as their stay-at-home directives were issued: March 26 for Gregg County, March 27 for Smith County, and April 2 for the rest of Texas under executive order from Gov. Greg Abbott. Operations in Louisiana have also been suspended.

Recent storms across the area have proven why Stonewater Roofing is an essential business. An influx of customers have called to request roof inspections and repairs, and we are grateful to be in a position that can provide assistance to them during this trying time. Work continues uninterrupted for both current and new customers.

Stonewater Roofing is taking action to ensure that everybody remains safe while projects are completed. Employees are required to follow safety guidelines regarding sanitation and social distancing. Customers are also being encouraged to take advantage of a process introduced last year which has now proven to be extremely beneficial to residents and business owners.

Remote Roofing by Stonewater allows customers to keep in touch with us using text messaging. All documents are available in a digital format, and our secure portal can accept payments online. In most cases, this process can eliminate all direct contact with our salesmen and contractors.

East Texans have no reason to be alarmed should they see Stonewater Roofing vehicles and crews around town. This only means that we are working to protect your neighbors and their property. Our goal is to provide the community with some peace of mind during this uncertain time.

Find The Best Roofing Company

With all of the pressure-filled sales pitches and roofers knocking on your door, it can be difficult to know who to hire. They all say that they are the experts, but how do you know if that’s actually true?

Here are some tips for finding the roofing company that best meets your needs.

Make a list of questions to ask before hiring a roofer.

Ask detailed questions regarding the company’s methodology, and ensure you are satisfied with their responses. For example, ask about the number of nails that will be used for each shingle. Most of the time, more than three nails will be required for a good job. You don’t have to be a roofing expert, but you should do a little research to know what is necessary to get your job done.

Turn down offers made using pressure tactics.

Roofers who try to sell their product this way are not the people who you want to deal with your roof. Such shysters can be very aggressive, so do what is necessary to shut them down. Don’t let them pressure you into making a decision that makes you feel uncomfortable. Take the time to call around and learn more about them first.

Do some careful research before deciding which roofer to hire.

Never base your choice solely off of who is cheapest or who is the closest. You should be doing solid research and reading reviews about contractors in your area. You may utilize online resources or seek recommendations from those who you know and trust.

At Stonewater Roofing, we are thrilled to have a long list of happy customers. Check out a few of the reviews here!

Before hiring a roofer, check all credentials.

You may want to ask your friends or family for suggestions, if any of them have had their roofs done. You need to hire an excellent contractor. This is the best way to ensure that you aren’t looking at expensive repairs down the road.

Make sure credentials are up to date.

If you’re looking into hiring a roofer, you should be sure that they can provide complete credentials that are totally up to date. A license is required for roofers, generally. Check with local authorities to see of your roofer has theirs up to date. The company should also be fully insured and covered for worker’s compensation laws as well.
