5 Tips for Choosing a Home and Roof Re-modelling Contractor

Every one of us wants the best for our homes and business. You might have thought about giving your home and roof a fresh new face, either because you want to make it more safe and secure, or perhaps you just want to give it a new look. Well, you don’t have to worry about that because that is normal. To deal with that, all you need to do is to hire a home and roof remodeling contractor. There is a lot of metal roofing in Charleston WV.

However, in choosing one, you need to consider a few important things. In this article, you're going to know all about the tips in the choice of the best metal roofing systems in Charleston WV.

1. Ensuring there’s Insurance

The very first thing you should consider in hiring a metal roofing company is to see to it that they have insurance. This is important because you’ll know never know what’s going to happen when the home and roof remodeling starts. There might be unnecessary damages or improperly installed fixtures.

You sure don’t want to spend another couple of bucks to get those repaired. To give yourself the peace of mind, it’s best that your metal roofing systems are insured by your contractor. This way, you don’t have to worry about getting any collateral damage because your contractor is obliged to pay for it.

2. Experience

Experience is the number one criteria you have to check when choosing a home and roofing contractor. This is where you can gauge their level of expertise. You'll get to know if they have the capability to do your home and roof remodeling properly. Their experience is what makes them reputable.

Learn about their past projects. How did it go out? How many clients they had? Or check out if their previous projects were all successful. Remember that it is impossible for a company to be an expert roofer in just a few days, weeks, or months. The more experience your contract has, the most likely your remodeling project will turn out well.

3. Certifications

Another important tip to remember when hiring a metal roofing in Charleston WV is to check whether they are certified. What we mean by certified is if they have passed the standards to continue their remodeling operations. Being also certified means that the company, as well as their workers, has all undergone the required seminars and training.

These are vital as these are what give them the proper skills and technical know-how. Getting a certification also means that your chosen contractor upholds a high level of professionalism.

4. Welcomes Personal Suggestions

This is perhaps the most underrated tip when it comes to choosing a home and roofing contractor. Most people tend just to let their contractor do the job. They think that they don't have the right to suggest their thoughts regarding the design, placement of things, and other things. Well, you don't have to feel that way. You are the contractor's client, and you have the right to speak your mind out.

Feel free to share your ideas regarding the design, color, materials, or whatever you could think of. Remember that it's your house and roof that they're working on, so they better make it suit your liking.

5. Time Sensitive

When choosing a metal roofing in Charleston WV, it’s also important for you to know if they’re approachable and that they take time seriously. What we mean by this is that they should come right away when you need their services. It might be that your roof has water leakings. You surely don't want to wait for a week or even just a day for your contractor to come just because they're still "busy."

A reliable remodeling contractor should always be on-the-go.  It's best if you ask a timetable from your metal roofing systems contractor. This way, you'll see when they can get things done. If you can see that it won't take long for them to finish the project, then that's a good sign that you've chosen the right metal roofing contractor like Master Built Construction.

Final Thoughts:

It is very important to you to spare some time to know more about the remodeling contractor of your choice. Check if they have the experience, the certification, and the right qualities. When you do, you’ll surely find your newly remodeled house more refreshing and conducive for living.

To love once again, I'd do
Anything, oh yeah

Don't be sorry, I really need to hear the truth

Maybe time alone will make you see
How deep our love could be
No, it's never too late"

The curve of your body, the feel of your skin
My hands could never, ever trace"

If you know what I mean

Oh, let's get rich and buy our parents
Homes in the South of France
Let's get rich and give everybody nice sweaters
And teach them how to dance
Let's get rich and build our house on a mountain
Making everybody look like ants
From way up there, you and I, you and I

6. Half Life by Duncan Sheik

"I'm awake in the afternoon
I fell asleep in the living room
And it's one of those moments
When everything is so clear

Before the truth goes back into hiding
I want to decide 'cause it's worth deciding
To work on finding something more than this fear

It takes so much out of me to pretend
Tell me now, tell me how to make amends"

can't believe, that we're not together anymore.
Something in her eyes, I've never seen before.

When she said: I'm not in love anymore.
Oh, baby.
I keep holdin' on, can't let go.
Please let me know.."

8. Cry On My Shoulder - Superstar

"If the hero never comes to you
If you need someone you're feeling blue
If you wait for love and you're alone

If you call your friends nobody's home

You can run away but you can't hide
Through a storm and through a lonely night
Then I'll show you there's a destiny
The best things in life they are free"

9. Everybody by Ingrid Michaelson

"We have fallen down again tonight
In this world it's hard to get it right
Trying to make your heart fit like a glove
What it needs is love, love, love

Everybody, everybody wants to love
Everybody, everybody wants to be loved
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh

Everybody, everybody wants to love
Everybody, everybody wants to be loved
Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, oh"

Begin where it ends
end to begin
Knock on that door, so you can get in

And don't mind the time, forget all that's been
Get lost in the park, find a tree that will last
Find a secret path, that leads to her house
Climb the stairs to the roof, lay flat on your back
No use feelin down, get rid of that frown
Take a walk, on the sunnyside
Take a walk on the sunnyside of
wash up in a stream, let it take away

13. Shine - Jade Ambroze

Don't you know there's never been anyone like you and never will be again.
Don't you try to be different just to be the same as everyone my friend.
'Cause you have qualities in your personality that nobody else can possess.
And authenticity is the key to your greater destiny,
To be your best.

Philippine Taxi Driver's: Are Abusive, Arrogant, Discourteous, Rude and Opportunist

As the Christmas season is getting near, a lot of people especially in Metro Manila are now preparing to buy something for their relatives as a gift during Christmas day. December is the month where malls and tiangges are encountering high volume of customers for the preparation of the holiday season. This is the only time of the year where relatives and family clans are having bonding and reunions.

Actually, my above statement is just my introductory of personal experience staying in the Philippines. The hospitality and generosity of Filipino people are extremely exceptional, I have a lot of Filipino friends whose working in a BPO industry which where I am working also, I have been working in the Philippines for almost 3 years and its quite amazing working with them.

The main purpose of my blog is to express how I feel with Philippine taxi drivers who are unscrupulous and taking advantage with the passengers/commuters mostly in Metro Manila. They don't even think that they are giving the Philippines a bad impression in the perception of the foreigners due to those exploitation of taxi drivers. The purpose of this blog is to notify the public especially the Philippine Government to have a greater punishment and higher penalty for Philippine taxi drivers who will be reported for being:

- Rude, Discourteous, Abusive and Arrogant to Passengers
- Refusing to Transport the Passenger
- Having Fast Taxi Meter
- Overcharging the Commuter to their Fare.
- Reckless Driver
- Maniac Driver
- Refusal to grant the 10 pesos discount of the commuters.
- Opportunist to passengers

Those mentioned grumbles above are the usual complains of an ordinary commuter most of the time. I can say that I normally experience them all daily. I've tried to file a complain by filling out this form of  Land Transportation Franchising & Regulatory Board (LTFRB), http://ltfrb.gov.ph/main/getinvolved#sthash.5q5DWP6y.dpbs but unfortunately nothing happens, they haven't respond to my concern or even notifying me a receipt of message.

Here is my story, Last Friday, it was December 2, 2016, I had several scenarios of refusal and contracting going to my destination.

Philippine Taxi Meter
Philippines Taxi Meter
I was at the back of SM North EDSA looking for a taxi to ride going ti Ayala, Makati. I called the attention of the first taxi near me and it stopped in front of me, I talked to the driver in tagalog and I said "Manong, pwede po bang sa Ayala, Makati sa PBcom tower?" (can you drop me off to Ayala, Makati in PBcom)? the taxi driver replied, "Malayo yun, tapos ma-traffic pa, kung gusto mo isasakay kita pero Php 700, lugi kasi ako sa gas eh" (It's far and it's already traffic, if you want I can pick you up but you are going to pay me 700 pesos, it's a big consumption to my gasoline).

And then I replied "telling, Sir, it's too much expensive my normal taxi rate from here to Makati ranges from 280 to 350 pesos only. The taxi driver response, "Eh kung ayaw mo maghanap ka na lang ng taxi na iba, ang dami mong satsat" (if you don't want, look for other taxi, you have a lot saying) that's my first taxi scenario.

I looked for another taxi, it was peak hours during that time it was 5:30 pm and it took 10 minutes to find a vacant taxi, I called the attention of the second taxi driver, it stopped in front of me, I tell the driver to drop me off on Ayala, Makati near Pbcom. The driver agreed to convey me going to Makati. I thought it was all good along the way, when we were in EDSA Cubao, The driver keep saying that "Grabe, Ang traffic. Ma'am, kung gusto bayaran mo na lang ako ng Php 500, hindi na ako mag-memetro kung ayaw nyo baba na lang kayo dito sa Cubao. (It so traffic, Ma'am if you want you could pay me Php 500, I won't operate my taxi meter but if you don't want, you can now drop here in Cubao).

During that time, I was totally pissed-off and I don't know what to react my temper went high. To avoid any argumentation or any conflicts with the driver, I just agreed on his condition to pay him 500 pesos to drop me on Ayala Makati.

It was an horrible experience specially for a foreign woman like me, this is not my country, I don't know where to run through or seek for help. I was traumatized of what happened and I told to myself that I would ride any Philippine Taxi anymore. I lost my confidence and trust with them now I would prefer to ride their transport competitor which is UBER even though it will take more minutes to arrived but still it safe and more reliable that the usual cab/taxi in the Philippines.

If in the future I would encounter same scenario again, I will post the plate number, taxi name, name of the driver and probably will take a photo of the driver and post it here in my blog. I am hoping that the LTFRB and the Philippine Government will have an immediate action to these kind of experiences we encountered with taxi drivers.

Here are the sample videos being caught and captured by the victims:

Abusive Taxi Driver - Taxi operator Margie V. Tan, Plate No. TXR 752
