There is a positive energy in the air you can feel when you walk into Stellar Roofing. This energy continues with managing partners, Daniel Shumway and Matthew Hebert. Matthew and Dan bring to the table all the youthful enthusiasm of a company seasoned with their 40+ years of combined experience. From asphalt shingles to durable metal roofs, Stellar Roofing does it all and does it well.
Customer satisfaction is of the utmost importance with Matthew and Dan describing Stellar Roofing as a “customer first” company operating on the Golden Rule. “We treat every roof as if it were over our own home,” said Dan. “We think, ‘What if I felt this way about my house?’ and do our best to make all of our customer families happy.” For Matthew and Dan, helping families work with insurance is a priority. Matthew is a licensed public adjuster and an insurance damage appraiser, making his knowledge of insurance claims unparalleled in the industry. Assisting each customer who needs a new, durable, beautiful roof is truly a labor of wisdom and love.
“It is a huge blessing to help a family get a new roof,” said Dan. “Matthew and I work very well with insurance to assist families in covering the cost of the new roof they need. One of our clients had the elements pouring in her roof, yet her insurance was denying her claim. We came in and were able to get her insurance to cover the entire cost of the roof she so desperately needed. Everyone needs a roof; it is non-negotiable.”
Matthew and Dan’s families are also involved, giving them motivation and support. “Matthew has been roofing for 20 years. As for me, my dad was a builder, so it is in my blood,” shared Dan. “Now, my son enjoys going with me to share our business fliers. Our wives are also very supportive. We owe everything to Jesus. Yes, we are managing Stellar Roofing wisely, yet we give all the glory to God for our success.”
Professionally, Dan and Matthew also put their personal faith in modern metal roofs. Metal roofs last significantly longer than traditional asphalt shingle roofs thanks to their unique powder coating which prevents rusting and fading. In fact, metal roofs are so durable they come with a 40-year warranty, besides Stellar Roofing’s 15-year labor warranty. “These metal roofs will essentially be the last roof a customer will ever have installed on a particular home,” said Dan.
Usually, such a high-quality roof would be expensive, but Stellar Roofing offers extremely fair prices. “There are three options when you hire a contractor for any project, including roofing,” explained Dan. “You can have the work done quickly. You can have it done with high-quality and good craftsmanship. You can have the work done cheaply. You can choose any two, but you cannot have all three. If you want good craftsmanship done cheaply, it may take a long time. If you want the work done quickly and well, then it will be costly. If you want it done quickly and cheaply, then the quality and craftsmanship will not be very good. At Stellar Roofing, we install your roof quickly and with excellent quality while working hard to keep our prices reasonable.”
“We are a local, family-owned business,” said Matthew and Dan. “We work to make sure everything is right for each and every one of our customers, making certain they are happy and satisfied.”
Stellar Roofing’s 5 Must-Have Tips for Purchasing a New Roof
Insist upon an attic inspection.
“A quick glance around an attic often does not allow you to see the mold that could be hiding there,” explained Matthew. “When we see damage on a roof, there is often black mold inside. Pay attention to loose granules, shingles that are cupping and other damaged areas. If you have had your existing roof 15 years or longer, your attic space should be inspected.”
Be certain your roof is well-ventilated.
Good ventilation is key to maintaining your roof. “If your roof is not properly ventilated, it could be brand-new, but it will rot in less than a decade and be covered in black mold,” shared Matthew and Dan.
Consider the type of roof you would like.
While asphalt and shingle roofing is certainly an option, Stellar Roofing highly advocates durable, long-lasting metal roofing. With its guarantee not to rust or fade for at least 40 years, metal roofing is a clear win for homeowners. “Ask the brand(s) of roofing materials a contractor intends to use and research the quality of them,” said Matthew. “While most materials are similar in cost, many are not similar in performance.”
Beware of paying too much upfront.
Is a contractor asking for 50%, 80%, even 100% payment upfront before even starting work on your roof? Recognize this bad sign and stay away! “At Stellar Roofing, we only collect 10% upfront and 90% upon completion,” said Dan and Matthew. “We put our money where our mouth is, making sure our customers are satisfied first.”
Know your contractor.
When selecting a roofing contractor, check contractor reviews as well as the contractor’s BBB rating and reputation. Also, avoid contracting the lowest priced contractors. “For the most part, roofing contractors pay the same costs for their materials,” explained Dan and Matthew. “If you select the lowest priced contractor, you are usually paying for poorer quality work since the cost of materials is fairly constant.”
