Jasper Contractors Jasper Roofing Fired After ONLY 2 weeks?! Lincoln, Nebraska
3rd of Dec, 2010 by User312057
Jasper Contractors is a joke.

^^ oh how i wish i could underline that a few more times.

Firstly, i was contacted about working for this company through my friends brother-in-law, he sat me down, discussed a few things and explained to me that the expectations for a person starting out in the company were not that high and that i would be sent to Lincoln, Nebraska for a training period until after Christmas, when i would be sent to Phoenix, Arizona for more permanent work. Jasper informed me that they pay a 30k base salary plus commission and sweetened the deal when they mentioned paid health care and a paid hotel (the only real money out of pocket was my travel). For a 20 year old, that's a big step up from working at wal-mart like most my age.

So, I basically leave my friends, family, and girlfriend in Tennessee (almost a thousand miles away) to come to Lincoln to work for these clowns. I've never been in sales, nor done anything involving construction, so naturally i would have to learn about the company and their processes as well as basics about roofs. My "training" with the manager lasted 2 days and consisted of inspecting 2 roofs and signing ONE contract. (Great training huh?)

As a side note I'd also like to add that during my 2 week stay in Lincoln, it didn't get above 35 degrees. Most days it was in the teens. Now, nobody wants to open their door to a door-to-door salesman in the blistering cold, i know i wouldn't. And then they expect us to explain that its OK to remove their roof and put a new one on in this type of weather? Any INTELLIGENT person would tell these people to get back in their trucks and go back to where they came from.

On my last day with Jasper Contractors, I met with an insurance adjuster and got my first roof bought, went back to the office to input some information about the sale into the computer, and was FIRED soon thereafter and was told that i was not "living up to expectations" that were never explained to me NOR was i ever told that i would need to step it up a little bit.

All in All, I spent upwards of 400 dollars in gas to travel, and the night before i was fired spent 100 dollars on food that is sure to go to waste on my 13 hour drive back to Tennessee, none of which the company will reimburse me for. I warn anyone who is considering applying to work for these clowns to think twice before accepting the job, they'll just take you a thousand + miles away from home and send you packing soon after.

I'm a homeowner who contracted with Jasper. They were paid 5, 500 dollars for a new roof on a 12 hundred square foot home. Plenty of money to to a great job. Unfortunatly my experience isn't the same as their website describes. I received the worst roof job ever. I was home at the time of the roof job and the next day took a look at the roof. 1. They didn't knock on the door to let me know I had rotten wood. They roofed over it. They used nails that were too long. They did not correctly roof around the air conditioner wires and my thermostat is behaving strangley, they also left holes in my elbow to my air conditioner. They had torn tar paper that was accidently caught in a picture of excitement of getting a new roof. I have no confidence that the tar paper was fixed. They evidently put their foot through a part of the wood they should have replaced and now I have shingles that cover a hole that measures at least 15 by 15 inches. the were paid to paint the vents but they are refusing saying they can't get the paint to stick. They put people on my roof who have never roofed before and the drip edge is cut at each corner with nail holes in the drip edge. They caulked around the vents but the caulk just sits on the vent and does not seal with the shingle. They left finishing nails on the outside of the shingles. They stole my basket ball backboard along with two shovels. They came back twice already and ground down the nails that were an eyesore on my front door eve. They replaced 2 pieces of the wood that were rotten but they did not replace the 2 by 6 because they said they are roofers not carpenters. They supposidley cleaned up the nails that were on the outside of the shingles but left 10 still untouched. They replaced the drip edge but left it cut at the corners and still two pieces have nail holes through them with not enough overlap. The neighbors said that the forman was yelling at the worker because he had already told him how to place a vent. They ripped up my roof three times fixing their mistakes and they never once mentioned the hole in the roof, which was accidently found. Anyone who steps on it may fall straight though. I contacted the Registrar of contractors and Jasper did not bother to show up for a Compliance meeting. I cannot believe for one minute that I'm the only one who received such shotty work from this company. The Registrar of Contractors sent them a report from the meeting and I've not heard a word on how they plan to resolve my issues. Right now I paid top dollar for a roof that is a patch work roof. They did not bother to send me the final notice for pay off and the 2 year guarantee of their work and the 30 year guarantee of the Owen Corning shingles. The shingles are so poorly placed, I can't imagine why Owens Corning would even guarantee this job. I now have to file a formal complaint with the Registrar of Contractors if they don't resolve my issues. I can't possibly be the only one out there, please look at your roof and make sure it is done right before they leave town and leave you with a mess like I have.
