Comparing Roof estimates can be daunting and confusing due to the many types of Roofing shingles and components, warranty levels, and labor force being use and how the job is actually being done. 

Furthermore, not all roofers are the same.

The vetting process of the roofer and the estimate comparison should be done separately.

Why did I join GenSun?

The decision to join the family at GenSun was very easy.  GenSun has a long history of being honest, transparent and educational.

They believe in educating all homeowners regardless of the project they desire.  Coach Jim has 100’s of education videos on every topic imaginable.  It truly gives me the confidence that property owners are properly taken care of in a professional and transparent manner.

GenSun continues to promote family values and traditional old fashion values that have seen to have disappeared in todays society.

Compare estimates Apples to Apples:

  1. Get an Exact Material list item by item!  Make sure the list of material is all from the same manufacturer!  The biggest scam is that contractors will low ball you by giving you brand name shingles but then all the roofing components underneath will be cheap brands.
  2. Get a Measurement report showing you the exact amount of square footage that they are quoting.  Many contractors will try to scam you by quoting low square footage and then the day of the job, tell you it more.
  4. do not put Ice and water shield on the rakes, in addition to the eaves!
  5. They do not input brand new drip edge and rake edge
  6. They will not install Ridge Vents along the ridge to help reduce your electric costs
  7. They do not Counter Flash the Brick chimney
  8. Outline the clean up of the property and their Property Protection policy
