Greg Wolter founded Community Builders, Inc. and has served as its president for more than 30 years. The company offers home remodeling services to clients throughout Oklahoma, Kansas, Arkansas and Missouri. They are not general contractors, but rather specialize in the work they know best, and they do it well. This includes energy-efficient vinyl siding, replacement windows, gutter guard systems, high quality sunrooms, bath and Jacuzzi products, and metal roof systems.
“We’ve always impressed customers with our
competitiveness and customer
dedication,” says Greg. “We’re grateful that customers continue to put their confidence in us by giving us the opportunity to provide outstanding products and services in every remodeling project we do. We enjoy earning your respect and your business.”
Now is a great time to think about roofs, and Community Builders recommends metal and stone-coated metal roofs by Energy-Loc. “A common shingle roof has a life expectancy of about seven years,” says Greg, “and even top-of-the-line shingles generally last only about 11 years.” Community Builders offers metal and stone-coated metal shingles that carry 50-year labor and materials warranties. “While it’s true that our Energy-Loc roofing products cost more than composite shingles, one needs to compare the life expectancies of the products before making a final decision,” says Greg. “Most homeowners’ insurance companies discount premiums on their policies up to 35 percent for stone-coated or metal roofs.” Check this out with your insurance company. The number one home insurance claim in Oklahoma is for roof damage and replacement.
Here are some facts to keep in mind if you’re considering a new roof for your home. The patented Energy-Loc interlocking fastening system prevents panels from lifting and allowing blowing embers to ignite the roof deck. Their Class “A” Fire Rating is the highest in the industry. They come with a 120-mile-per-hour wind warranty and have withstood 170-mile-per-hour wind tests. Energy-Loc’s hail warranty has the highest rating in the industry, and their superior features reduce the threat of roof collapse in an earthquake. The Energy-Loc roof panels will not split, crack, break, curl, warp or absorb water, plus the stone granules in the stone-covered products are UV-reflective and provide protection against the elements. According to the manufacturer, metal roofs are lightweight, contain over 30
percent recycled content,
generally increase the value of your home, and are virtually maintenance-free.
A metal roof from Community Builders comes with the installation of a free Green Energy Barrier that features advanced space-age technology. “Customers usually recognize a savings somewhere between 20 to 40 percent on cooling bills and a little less on heating,” says Greg. “Plus, we offer 12 months ‘same-as-cash’ or easy low payment plans to suit your budget.”
When asked how long he thought a metal roof would last, Greg responded, “I don’t really know. We’ve only been installing them for a little over 30 years.”
