As a successful entrepreneur, Mr. Wedding feels it is imperative to listen to his customers and to respond promptly and considerately. By always putting his customers first, Mr. Wedding hopes to maintain Jasper Contractors reputation as a trustworthy and reliable company in the roofing and HVAC industry. Jasper Contractors takes employee satisfaction seriously as well and strives to promote a positive working environment by encouraging feedback from associates on a regular basis.
Jasper Contractors recognizes that complaints posted on Ripoff Report regardless of validity are issues that need to be addressed and not ignored. With the feedback generated by Rip-off Reports Investigation Jasper Contractors has made organizational changes allowing its clients and employees a more streamlined approach to problem resolution and a commitment to a great client experience.
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. They also have learned to communicate better with their customers and are implementing that through a blog and responding to the complaints on Ripoff Report. Jasper feels as though it is beneficial to defend how they are represented in their industry.
In summary, after our investigation, which included discussions with Mr. Wedding and many of his past and current associates, Ripoff Report is convinced that Jasper Contractors is committed to quality delivery of services resulting in total client satisfaction.

NOW TO THE ORIGINAL REPORT THAT WAS FILED
Jasper Contractors Jasper Roofing New roof failed inspection twice and still leaks, now getting the run around Baton Rouge, Louisiana
The first snow melt a week after our new roof was installed by Jasper Contractors aka Jasper Roofing resulted in every upper ceiling becoming wet and stained.
The roof failed inspection the first time due to the tar paper being cut too short by 3 to 4 inches and not reaching the edge of the roof all the way around the house.
Ceilings in 6 rooms are water damaged due to the leaky new roof and need to be painted and possibly need mold mitigation.
Attempted repairs fixed most of the leaks but not all.
The roof failed inspection a second time due to the repairs being done incorrectly. Jasper has ignored this.
Their president Carl McNair is giving me the run around by telling me they will fix the leaks yet has not authorized his people to do so. When I call to schedule repairs their supervisor Richard Mead either hangs up on me or says he can not do anything unless Carl says so then says he will check with Carl and get back to me which never happens.
The owner Brian Wedding refuses to return my calls.
Carl McNair refuses to accept responsibility for the water damage to my home.
Since Jasper has become uncooperative and stopped returning my calls I have turned this over to the Better Business Bureau for resolution. Jasper did not respond to the BBB and now the issue has disappeared from the BBB web site. I left a message two weeks ago for the BBB representative assigned to this issue and they have not returned my call.
I replaced the roof in preparation for selling my home last year thinking this would be a good selling point and now I can not sell it with a leaking roof because the Jasper warranty is not transferable.
The roof still leaks and causes the ceiling to get wet after every snow melt or rain.
There are multiple damaged tiles from careless use of the trim knife.
The starter tiles were installed wrong causing no seal.
The wrong drip edge was installed causing the tiles to level out at the edge slowing water run off.
The ceiling was cracked when a Jasper supervisor jumped down from a higher level instead of waiting for a ladder that was being brought to him.
The gutter is damaged from Jasper's ladders.
I paid for but did not receive the following items:
$409.37 for new chimney flashing
$209.48 for 33.25 LF of step flashing and only 3 LF was installed.
$61.86 for 19.33 LF of 14" flashing to tie in metal porch roof.
$61.33 for a replacement exhaust cap, instead was painted.
$192.80 for permits and only $90.44 was used.
I need help dealing with Jasper Contractors to receive what I paid for which is a properly installed, non leaking roof plus damages repaired.
