When you specialize in something you can invest in the equipment and manpower to do the job efficiently. Gouker not only has a fleet of trucks for carrying material to jobs, he also uses a piece of equipment called a “roofers buggy”. This is a portable dumpster on wheels. The buggy eliminates the need for a stationary dumpster to be in your driveway or yard while the project is going on. “It’s a showstopper,” Gouker said. “It saves mess, it’s easier on lawns and landscaping and it can be positioned anywhere we need it to catch debris. We have three of them and we use them all the time.”
Craig Gouker Roofing also has a dedicated conveyor truck that moves shingles from the truck to the roof without touching the yard.
“We believe strongly in being the best at your craft. This is all we do, all day every day,” Gouker said. “When you dedicate yourself to that, you can give back more to the customer in quality and conscientiousness regarding their home and yard that other companies can’t compete with.”
Gouker only installs Owens Corning shingles and is an Owens Corning Platinum Preferred Installer (#202690). He carries their Duration line of shingles exclusively which provides a limited lifetime warranty for as long as you own your home plus a wind resistance rating of up to 130 mph. The Duration shingle warranty also guarantees algae resistance for 10 years. The line comes in a variety of colors to choose from that can match any style of home.
Gouker offers free estimates, financing options and is fully insured with proper insurance classifications, something that not all roof installers may have. “It’s very confusing, so make sure your roofer has the proper classification on their insurance” Gouker said. If they do not and there is a catastrophic injury, their claim may be denied and they can come after the homeowner. That won’t happen with us.”
In fact, Gouker’s safety record is excellent with most of his employees have been with him for over 15 years. He has an excellent record with the Better Business Bureau and multiple 5-star reviews from satisfied customers.
“It’s a difficult thing to be an honest, professional roofing contractor in 2020,” Gouker said. “But we are up for the challenge. We have been ahead of the pack for over 25 years and our record and testimonials speak for themselves.”
