As with handymen, great roofers are few and far between. Oh, there are plenty of roofers out there, but not plenty of roofers that can be counted on to do the job well. Roofing is one area where you do not want to hire the “cheap” guy. Over the years I have seen countless beautiful homes suffer serious damage due to faulty roof installation — while the home owner is in shock because their roof is “practically new.” It doesn’t matter if it’s new, and it doesn’t matter if it has a permit. If it’s not done right (there are so many ways for it to be done wrong, I can’t list them all here), you are in trouble, period. Call a good roofer, and pay a reasonable fee. It’s worth it.
I have had great experiences with, and personally recommend, all of these:
