There is a BIG difference between a “roofer” and a fully licensed, fully insured roofing contractor.
A licensed contractor is someone who maintains an advanced level of industry training and knowledge. This you will get a professional grade, high-quality roof installation for your home. An insured roofing contractor takes the pressure off you, and your homeowner's insurance, in the event an accident occurs on your property. A credible contractor will provide you with proof of their insurance coverage and licensing.
We know it can be tempting to get the job done at the lowest price possible, but a new roof is an important investment and not one you should have to reinvest in after just a few short years.
