The Following information provided in this report is based on comments made by Brian Wedding and his staff during an on-site inspection held by a third party verification company with no biases toward Jasper Contractors.
Jasper Contracts is a roofing and HVAC company located in twelve cities nationwide. Their target market is everyone because everyone has a roof over their head, whether that be at work or at home. The company believes that their size and various awards they have won set them apart from other companies in their industry. Additionally, they believe they are a competitive employer because they offer benefits such as company vehicles and insurance coverage for their employees and their families with no out-of-pocket costs.
The sales process at Jasper starts out with a salesmen knocking on homeowners doors. Occasionally, their sales force focuses on an area where damage has occurred due to storms or environmental conditions. While meeting potential customers, the salesperson is responsible for explaining to the homeowner the services Jasper can provide. At this time, the salesperson explains the steps it will take to complete the roof installation and provides advice when dealing with the homeowners insurance company. Additionally, the salesperson will aid in working with the insurance adjustor to assess the damages. During the entire sale and installation of the product, a representative from Jasper stays in constant communication with the client to ensure they are receiving the best customer care possible.
Jasper has noted that there are some areas of concern that need improvement internally, such as some of their methods of communication. Currently, they are taking an active approach on implementing new systems. For example, all of their employees are now given Android phones to ensure that orders can be processed right away. Additionally, employees have special email addresses for billing to make sure orders are taken care of in a timely manner.
One of the most common complaints Jasper receives is they occasionally leave nails behind after a job is complete on the ground. Jasper states that they go back out to the site and provide a magnetic sweep to clear the nails left behind. The other complaint the company commonly receives is in regards to the customers invoice being different than the quoted price. This is usually due to supplemental damage to roof that cannot be seen until the original roof has been taken off. Jasper does their best to explain this to customers. Additionally, the company states that if clients are dissatisfied with something, they send a representative onsite within twenty-four hours of being notified. They work with the homeowner until the situation is resolved.
Jasper has received many complaints from former employees in the sales department in regards to their termination policies. The company stated that they have put new training in place for the sales department which they feel helps to retain employees.
Since Jasper Contractors has been a part of Ripoff Report Consumer Advocacy Program, changes have been made to do whatever it takes to make the client happy. Japer is now requesting satisfaction surveys from current customers, they have more field managers working onsite, and they work to fix problems with-in twenty-four hours.

Jasper feels as though it is beneficial to defend how they are represented in their industry.

===================== NOW TO THE ORIGINAL REPORT THAT WAS FILED
===================== Jasper Contractors, Inc Ripping off their salesmen Internet
After reading the pay structure for Jasper Contractors that yield somewhere between $432 and $192 commission on an 8k job (current salesman vs ex salesman's calculations)
its pretty obvious its their salesmen who are getting ripped off.
A normal commission structure for companies that are fair to their people (not giant storm chaser turn and burn types) is 10% overhead then split the profit generally around 50/50. Some companies have paid a 10 percent flat percentage but that method is less common now. On a roof coming in at 250 a square, the commission would 960 dollars.
All day, every day, year in, year out, long after Jasper Contractors has left town.
Jasper and all storm chasers will tell you how amazing they are and to watch out for all other roofers. However, with the little tiny percentage they are paying, it looks like the thing they are the best at is taking advantage of new salesmen that don't know any better.
Companies that travel around have no incentive to be good to their people or care about the longevity of the roofs they put on. Its all about quick money now, and the salesmen and homeowners that use them are the big losers.
