you know not to defend homodepot
but it is not home depot staff that installs those roofs
home depot hires the lowest cost contractor in the area
they pay them less then a regular contractor would charge you
and the contractor working for home depot gets no advantage
no benifits or insurance or taxes paid...nothing
you are better off getting a roofer that is well known and paying a little
more then getting someone that home depot will use and throw away.
This way small contractors with 1 to 10 employees will stay in business and
they wont go the way of small farmers that got replaced by big companies.
do it yourself
if you can afford a house
you should be able to take care of it
unless you have real physical problems then you should get a contractors
the guys doing the roofs for home depot are the small contractors. they
have to honor at least a one year warranty. call the contractor, if they
refuse to come fix it, call home depot. I would bet home depot won't give
you any help with this, i am sure there was some sort of waiver form you
signed stating such.
Why do you think that HD won't help? When I got some wood floors done
through HD, I ordered through HD and paid HD for the job. That makes them
the General Contractor and the flooring guys were the subs working for the
GC. HD is 100% responsible for the job.
By your logic, we shouldn't need contractors at all except to help the
handicapped. And in doing so, contractors should work for cheap or free.
I'm glad I don't live in your world.
Real world logic would dictate that if you have a house you should be
able to afford to take care of it.
I have a 2800sf colonial with a fairly steep pitched shingle roof and a
steep dropoff in the back. At 56 years old, I have no desire to climb
up there and try to strip and reshingle the roof, doing it slower and
not as well as a competent roofing crew. Fortunately, I have the means
to not have to do that. I can hire a roofer. See how simple that is?
