I've had trusses with long bottom cords be out of plane because of bad lumber. The roof line could still be on plane.

The first couple of times that you did roofs for me, I came up on the roof to chit chat with you. Ok, not really. I was checking for nail placement.

It's hard to find subs that do quality work, which is why when I find one I stick with them.

Here's a good one...

If the best contractor is figured out by sales numbers.
Then Mcdonalds has the best burger.
