Well there gone, yes the so called local roofing company is gone, they made their money and made fools out of romans and left town. You can now thank this city for letting them come in to town take work from the locals and money from are residents of rome and leave town. ( The Storm Chasers CMR)

please explain exactly who LETS a business come in, better yet how legal business can be denied. seems to me these guys did nothing wrong. in fact they rented office space here and their workers were lodged and fed here. the market for their services declined so they left and that's the frkn mayor's fault? contractors chasing storm damage for work? gasp! how dare they go where the work is! i've had the displeasure of dealing with the kotary fools, the breen bros., bill's (the worst) idiots and a few other local yokels who charge more and did a sh!t job time & time again. now i use independent contractors whom although they operate under the radar do excellent work. and no they're definitely NOT from this city.

What is nothing wrong with what they did. They knocked on doors for business. Why didn't the local guys do it. Why would I support locals if they are not willing to do some leg work for business. They(cmr) were up front with me. I will support who is willing to work.

Let me just explain a few things about CMR roofing. They have law suits from all over. They were ripping off homeowners and over charging. Yes they did knock on doors and had a great selling pitch, homeowners do your homework. Call references. Look them up with the BBB. It's not the Mayors fault. They didn't break any rules other then overcharging the insurance company and doing horrible work on houses. They have a Tom of law suits. If people were aware and concerned they would have posted this a long time ago and called the mayors office. They hired some locals and you get what you paid for. I did my research and I had Platinum Home Improvements come and do my roof and they were excellent. Did a great job, never found a nail on the ground and the owner Scott was honest and not out to rip me off. He even covered my high deductible. If you want honest hard workers be at your house for possibly weeks at a time call him. His signs are all over my neighborhood so he must be doing something right.

I agree with most of what you said but this topic has been on here several times over the last year and a half. Also your last statement is wrong. CMR had signs all over my neighborhood back a year or so ago. That didn't mean they were good.

Finding a good, trustworthy roofing contractor is like finding a needle in a haystack. They all know they have the homeowner over a barrel and they take advantage of that.

Fact: The reason why they call themselves home improvement, contracting, and construction is because they don't have" Roofing Insurance" call the insurance company yourself and you'll see this is true! New York State Insurance Carriers do not sell roofing insurance and have a clause stating "they do not cover Roofing" so these contractors hide under these titles and tell their insurance company they refrain from roofing. So fact of the matter, someone gets hurt the homeowner is Screwed! and that's not to mention that 98% of the contractors have no workers comp insurance because it cost to much, and that most workers are working under the table because their on Welfare, SSI, Receiving Unemployment, or so called Disabled. Homeowners due your homework before you hire these clowns. Call their " Insurance company direct," Not their Agent because he will Lie to you to also because he's the one that sold them the policy.

What I meant was Platinum had sign all over my neighborhood. Not CMR. CMR are not good at all. They even put signs in people's yard and didn't even do the job
I take offense to that

I know a lot of "Home Improvement and Contractors" and yes a lot of them are under the table, but if you really knew what you are talking about then you would know that you have to meet a certain % of roofs you do per year to have roofers insurance.
There a lot of contractors that do maybe one or two roofs a year so why would they pay for roofer insurance? You do your homework. These so called scum bags that are on welfare or SSI? They are working you idiot and you are probably the one sitting home on welfare. The ones who have enough balls to start their own business and try to make a honest living in this area is hard enough. So think before you speak. Why do you feel you have the right to say things like that about hard working people? Let's see you carry 3 bundles of shingles up a ladder on a steep roof and bend over all day nailing. You probably just would like the bend over part you dick. Don't knock them cause you could never hang with the real men to work in a kinds of weather to make houses look nice and make Rome a better place.

Miss Welfare, its not one or two roofs these guys do and you know that, and the certain percent is less then 15% of their gross sales. Their just trying to beat the insurance system, like the welfare, SSI, system and work at the same time. These guys will be caught and reported and you can bet on that because, if I see them myself I will take pictures and mail them to the welfare office, ssi office and every insurance company in town. owe and for your info sweetie, real men don't send their women down to the welfare office to reep benefits why they are out working because they cant support you.
