A poll on the Roofing Contractor Network on LinkedIn asked respondents to estimate the percentage of contractors who operate with a high level of integrity when doing storm remediation work. Here’s a link to the poll.

Frankly, I’m surprised at the early results. The mean response is in the 25-50 percent range; that is, most people believe that only 25 to 50 percent of contractors doing storm work are on the up and up.

I’ll check on the results next week and follow up with a report on how things are trending. I’m curious — what do you think of the results so far? And what can roofing contractors do to combat unscrupulous people posing as roofers and keep them from giving the industry a black eye.
