Don’t trust companies that are unwilling to show you proof of liability and workman’s comp insurance credentials. If you do, you are taking a high risk for a liability case. Only entrust your roofing issues or contracting to a highly rated company that is more than willing to provide proof of insurance. Fly by night companies are a dime a dozen and they count on your willingness to go for price first without inspecting their credentials.

Too many customers have been ripped off by out of state and out of town roofer’s who are here today and gone tomorrow!

Reputable roofing companies will guarantee supply and material prices within a certain date of installation as well as warranty their labor, shingles and provide proof of coverage. Engaging an out of town, or out of state roofing contractor can be a financial risk because man of them are quickly unavailable when you have concerns or issues.

Sure you can get your roof done cheaper from out of state or out of county contractors, but do you really want to take the chance on their response time if you have an emergency issue? Go local and do your homework. Out of state contractors are famous for being long on promises and short on delivery once they have received your payment for a completed job. However, local roofing companies are accessible and readily available upon completion of a job and any questions or concerns you might have.
