How we stand apart

When choosing between items of comparable value, it makes sense to go for the lowest price.  Why spend $3 on the same bottle of soda you can get at the Dollar Store?

However, not all things are created equal, and price doesn’t always equal value.  A 40 year old crib with lead-based paint, while cheaper than a new safety-tested model, is still not a good value (or even a good idea!)

As your home’s first line of defense against the elements, your roof is an important investment.

Like many things, shopping for a new roof goes beyond just comparing prices.  We know that quality is important to you, and you deserve to know what you’re getting with your hard-earned money.  When looking at the lowest bids, ask yourself “are corners being cut to be able to offer this price?”  Hidden details can mean the difference between a roof that will leak and one that won’t.

We have provided the following checklist as a helpful guide when shopping for your new roof.  When reviewing bids from other contractors, be sure to have them explain the details of the work they are proposing until you are satisfied that you fully understand all they are offering.
