On a recent Tuesday morning, Jan 2019, two Irish chaps supposedly from “R and S Roofing” wanted to alert me to the fact that they were doing some work on a nearby house and wanted to apologize for any noise, etc., their activities might cause. Then one of them suddenly noticed that I was missing a cap tile on my roof. What an amazing coincidence! Two roofing contractors just happened to be in the area and decided to be good samaritans and alert me to a roofing cap tile that had suddenly just disappeared.To cut a long story short, they said they couldn’t possibly fix it because they were so very, very busy with other work, but they wanted to alert me to the “hole” in case it rained and flooded the roof. They didn’t have time to fix it, but perhaps something might be arranged…?I was extremely suspicious of them and I think it showed.They said they might be able to return later with a tarpaulin to cover the gap while I made a decision about the required repairs. I didn’t expect them to come back, and now I had a hole in my roof that needed fixing.I searched for “Roof repair scam” which led directly to a blog post on “The Roof Dentist” website about that very subject. I was lucky enough to reach Garry who just happened to be in the area and was able to come straight over to investigate.Our suspicion about this being a scam was confirmed when Garry climbed the roof and found the “missing” cap tile hidden behind the chimney! He quickly replaced it and will return in a few days to do some repointing.A big “Thank you!” to Garry of The Roof Dentist for his quick response and his kind, courteous and professional manner.UPDATE:A follow-up to my experiences with The Roof Dentist company after my roof had been damaged by roofing scammers and needed some urgent repairs.Garry from The Roof Dentist undertook the original remedial action and a few days later Jarrod and Barry arrived to complete the work.It was a very hot and unpleasant day but they both completed the task like the professionals they are: skillfully and efficiently. They even selflessly took care of a few new issues discovered during the final repair process.In this age of “fly-by-night” operators and outright scammers it’s comforting to know there are companies and people we can still trust in.Many thanks again to Garry, Barry and Jarrod for their exceptional expertise and considerate manner.
