Yes we are. We send out a copy of our certificate of liability insurance with every full roof estimate.
Generally Tom or Kevin will be out to survey your roof within 2 business days to measure your roof, take a look at your leak, or gather information to draw up an estimate proposal. You'll receive a proposal packet estimate via- Email within 1-2 days of site evaluation. Included in our packets are product brochures of all materials we use for your convenience.
Full roof jobs during the summer and fall can usually be scheduled in about 3 weeks after receiving your signed contract and deposit—usually 10% of the job. We can work in service repairs sooner than that depending on the type of work required and the urgency.
We have been operating as a full roofing company since 1991. Previous to that Tom Bott (President) worked on roofing projects doing everything.

We believe in providing our customers with top quality roofing materials without exception. There are certain materials that are standard to our contracts such as Certainteed and Air Vent Ventilation products. Informative material brochures are included in proposal packets. We also provide our customers with shingle samples as well as references of nearby completed work which aids in the decision making process.
We welcome any questions or concerns the customer may have regarding the work to be done. When you communicate what you are looking for we will be glad to inform you of the options available to you.
You need to go about this with an open but shrewd attitude. You want a contractor who will offer you quality.
*Warning* Beware that the lowest or the highest price does not guarantee quality or integrity.
When looking for a contractor you should ask them if they are bonded and insured. You may ask them about their experience with situations like yours. They should be certified to apply roofing systems. You should ask them what they think you should do about a problem. You may end up with more problems if you think you know what to do and hire a contractor to merely do what you tell them to do. Their insight in a situation may save you a lot of money down the road.
If you’d like you may ask them for references. You can also ask for addresses near you where they have done some work, installed a roof etc.
