I just spoke with my suppliers and nothing out of the norm from Joplin.Pick a manufacture and they all have quirks with exposures,lengths and height.
I would wonder how you could buy a few truck loads of defective material and feel comfortable selling and installing them.
Are there that many stupid homeowners who would willingly allow installation of a defective product without any type of warranty?
The material obviously has no warranty and the contractor could easily side step coverage of a workmanship warranty.
Just out of curiosity.,.,what is your sales pitch?.,Or do you own a C rated material salvage home improvement warehouse?.,.,If that is the case alot of contractors in your area are buying this junk and installing them on unsuspecting homeowners properties.
I am the first to agree with free enterprise but IMO that is some crooked sh**…,.,it would be almost worth it to contact your Attorney General and have this process investigated.You can say all you want but somewhere between you and the final installation is some seriously dishonest dealing going on.
Roofing contractors are ALWAYS in the cross hairs of the media,BBB,A.G etc.What sucks is the ones who do things right are suffering because of crooks like you.I have a hard time believing Tamko or any other manufacture would sell several hundred truck loads of materials to a 3rd rate distribution center knowing that they will at some point end up on thousands of homes.It is just not a good marketing plan.
I maybe wrong but it seems more productive to melt them down and start over.If a true conspiracy is being played out by Tamko it seems more logical to load all the shingles up from all the suppliers in the dead of night while nobody is watching rather than roll the dice.Billion dollar companies don’t stay billion dollar companies by tossing the dice.,But hey.,what do I know.,???.,
