Did you have your Ice Dam hacked at this winter ?

Posted by Dan MacDonald on Mar 10, 2015 2:11:14 PM


This winter we had over 100 calls an hour everyday over a 4 week span in Feburaury. In the metrowest area we had over 90" inches of snow in that span. A new record for snowfall in that short of time frame. We also had over 40 days of below average temperatures, add all these elements together and you have huge ice dams issues !! We tried to get to every call we could but just wasnt possible with the volume of calls. Wheather it was our commercial flat roof customers concerned with the weight and roof collapse or it was residential sloped roofs leaking into homes and causing damage. We at Robert Evans Jr Contracting recommmended removing the snow above the dams to help alleviate the dam and leaving mother nature take care of the massive ice . NOT hacking at the ice with hammers ,drills, ice piks,etc.


 

This customer had her ice dam removed from her 8 yr. old roof by a company her insurance company sent over, causing extreme damage. Now she's left with having to replace her entire roof!!

Hi Dan,
Thanks for another job well done on the roof. I will continue to share my experience with Evans Contracting with my colleagues at our expanding MathWorks campus to hopefully drive more businesses for you. My father-in-law Leo would like to get a receipt from Evans Contracting for his record. Could you kindly send me one when you are free?
Thanks,
Eddy

This is a fine example of COO Danny MacDonald hard at work.  Danny is not only the backbone of sales at Evans Contracting but a significant element to the demanding labor.

On a recent job Danny replaced soffit and fascia demonstrating his knowledge of the product and installation process.  At Evan's Contracting we try to differentiate ourselves from other companies by having our sales and service be one in the same.  Danny has a thorough understanding of both the products we sell and the installation processes because he does the physical labor.  His well rounded backround makes him a great salesman and he can assist customers better than one who has never seen the top of a roof.  Danny's experience gives him a competitive advantage and more importantly eases the customer's mind.

It is beneficial to the company and to the customer to have well educated and trained employees.  The customer's will buy with no remorse if they are presented all options and work with confident contractors.    Robert Evan's Jr. Contracting prides itself in consistent and quality work; this starts with consistent and quality employees. photo[2] resized 600
