Defective Shingles Survey

Does your home or business have defective asphalt shingles?

I'm talking about ones that failed way before their time.

My own 30-year-guarantee asphalt shingles FAILED in just twelve years.

Look at them:

I'm trying to assemble stories like yours about shingles failing all across North America.

Please fill out the simple survey below to help me. It would be a GREAT HELP if you sent me photos of your roof. Close up ones like you see above are the best. Thank you.

If you do complete the survey you will receive FOR FREE at NO CHARGE an electronic digital copy of my final report. I expect this to be done no later than June of 2016, probably much sooner.

By filling out the survey you agree that I can share your story, and any photo(s) you upload, in a report, webpage, book, video, or any other form of communication - even one's not yet invented without giving you any financial compensation. I have to put this in because of the litigious nature of our society. Good grief.

Thanks in advance for doing this.

Your story, in the long run, should help to put pressure on the shingle manufacturers to begin to make a better product.
