This past summer, after weeks upon weeks of storms – which all seemed to be complete with wind, hail and LOTS AND LOTS of rain – plowed through Lincoln and the surrounding communities, there were all sorts of new roofing companies popping up – seemingly overnight. With all the stress that comes with dealing with storm damage, having a roofer ‘magically’ appear at your front door with offers to help may seem like the answer to all that ails you. Unfortunately, that’s not always the case.

So, with that in mind, we’d like to review some of the biggest benefits to hiring local. Let’s start with the obvious…

Local contractors are local

They’re not from out of state. References can be obtained from someone down the block or across town, as opposed to some mysterious ‘satisfied customer’ who’s all the way across the country. That means you can physically drive by the houses those local contractors have done work on and see their final product with your own eyes. It also means that, should you ever have a problem or need additional work done, your contractor is – again – local. We’re your neighborhood business. We’re visible and present in the community. We’re familiar with local building codes. And, most importantly, we’re here when you need us – as opposed to in another state, on another job – with our customers out of sight and out of mind.

Another thing to think about is this…

If someone is ‘chasing’ business, you might want to stop and ask yourself the all important question – WHY?

Here at Golden Rule, we love what we do – and we love that our customers love the way that we do what we do. As such, we don’t have the need to go door-to-door looking for work. Trust us, we’re pretty much always busy! Now, that doesn’t mean that we’re too busy for you, but it does mean that we don’t have roofers out pounding the pavement in an effort to drum up business. So, if you’ve got someone walking around your neighborhood in search of customers – .well, there might be a not-so-good reason why they’re not as busy as us.

What it all boils down to is peace of mind for our community and customers. Local, established contractors are, again, just that – local and established. We’re here when you need us and NOT the other way around – we don’t just show up when we need you.

So, if you’re looking for a top-notch, reliable, LOCAL roofing contractor, please don’t hesitate to give Golden Rule Contractors a call!
