the two terms don't go together well: good & inexpensive.

You could ask around and get quotes to find the best price in your area. I think it is a good idea to get your roof repaired if you plan to sell. Most people feel better buys a house with a good rood. Good luck, I hope you find someone to get it done for you!

Good, and fairly priced would probably be best. My sister just got a new roof on her house. The roofers got it done fast and it looks really good. She said it wasn't a bad price. I'll have to ask her for the name of the company.

Having a good and solid roof is a great thing to have done. If I was you, I would ask around in your area. I would talk to friends or neighbors and see what they would suggest in your area. Good luck!

We just used Homeadvisor.com to find a bunch of home maintenance recommendations for the area. They put you in touch with 3 vendors (all vetted like angie's list) and you'll get three bids, usually within 24 hrs. It's a free service and worked pretty well.

Good roofers are fairly plentiful. I have known many good roofers over the years. It is usually a matter of finding one that you are comfortable with and that will differ from person to person. I have usually found a good contractor through asking my friends and family who they have used themselves. http://www.bettercontracting.ca/aboutus/

It's probably better to ask friends who live in your area or people in your neighborhood to get references. There might be local companies that those of us who don't live in your area wouldn't know about. Many people have had experience with roofing companies so they can give you the best references. I hope your search goes well!

Contact a "big box" store such as Home Depot. They will have excellent financing options, a broad selection of quality materials, and they can set up the installation. I'm all about making something easy-breezy, and Home Depot did that for me when we needed a new roof. Good luck.

I am looking to sell my house in the next few years. My husband and I think it would be a good idea to get the roof replaced before we try to sell it. We think that having a new roof will increase the value of our home. Hopefully we can find a good roofer as well.

You could try asking your friends. Often, recommendations from friends can be the best. I have been looking into getting my roof replaced after a storm blew off a few shingles. I've found that cheap roofers are not always the best. It's better to make sure that you get the roof you need than it is to save money. http://www.palmerroofing.net

I completely understand how frustrating it can be to find reliable contractors. I bought a beautiful Victorian house which is wonderful, but the roof started leaking. Are their different roofers for specific types of roof repair?

Yeah, I know it's tough to find people. I hope you found a roofer to meet your needs. My first move is always to go to friends and neighbors and compare their experiences if possible. If someone had a good experience getting similar work to what I need done, then I ask for a quote. Thiago | http://www.palmerroofing.net

You can check with a number of sources. Angie's List is one source, another source is the local builder's association and ask if any co-workers, neighbors or friends have used one that they will recommend. After you get a list together, be sure to check with your state licensing to see if they have had any complaints. One other thing to remember is to get a minimum of 3 estimates from the ones you have checked out. In my area, an estimate is usually good for 30 days for roofers, plumbers or other contractors. Make sure everything is in writing and keep a copy of the contract between you and the contractor. One thing I learned early on was not to pay money up front. Be sure you have in the contract when payment or payments are due. When I put a roof on my house, I paid for the shingles but my contractor was not paid until the job was completed and everything was cleaned up around my home. Roofing nails can get in the yard and parking areas so make sure that the contractor has one of the large magnets to go over your yard and parking areas. Saves on flat tires.
Hope you find a competent roofer soon but always remember you get what you pay for and cheaper is not always better

It's probably most helpful to ask around your neighborhood if they've used a roofer recently. People in your area will know best which roofers are good or not. There are always online reviews that can be helpful as well.

Although I never used these guys, If you're in Eastern Canada (Quebec, specifically) you could check the people out at http://www.couvertureslachenaie.com/services_fr.htm . These guys are couvreurs (roofers in French) professionals, so I've heard. Hope this helps; I don't know where Kenmore is.

Bill Eckler,

You don't always get what you pay for. Back when I practiced bankruptcy law, some of the firms that charged the most to file a simple bankruptcy were the least qualified. In the real estate area I wouldn't say that every agent that charges 3% is of the same quality.

Is there any such thing as "a good inexpensive" anything. My experience is that "one usually gets what they pay for......."

Hmmm....2008?

I agree with Scott 100 percent... Angie's List is the way to go!
Good luck with the roof!
Have a great day!

Can we put this one to bed? Tammy's "new" roof is now five years old . . .

Hi Tammy.

If you're an active agent working for owners that need different contractors on a regular basis, it would be worth joining a service like Angie's List. It will save you time and money, and you know the contractors are already screened.

GOOD LUCK.

I am also looking for a roofer. The difference is that I'm looking for a roofer in Vancouver. Has anyone called somebody from the site http://affiliatedroofers.ca/about/? Was it cheap? Did they do a good job? I would love to hear some reviews.

I'm not sure good and inexpensive go together. Roofers tend to come and go and roofers whose prices are too cheap do not stay in business. I would recommend you hire a quality roofer. An outstanding roofing company is Versatile Roofing, 425-576-1200. They offer a very high quality of service, advice and workmanship for a fair price. If you call them, please tell them I gave you their name.

Call Rick Larson at Roof Doctors in Seattle. He is absolutely the best roofer and his prices are lower than virtually everyone else. I have referred people to rick for over 15 years and hired him to do my own home last year. I don't have his phone number handy but you shold be able to find him in any online or paper Seattle directory.

I use Angie's List, which is a GREAT resource for all types of contractors. Customers rate and give their opinions on the service they received . . . or didn't (as the case may be). I found the reviews were very helpful in focusing on the companies I would call for estimates, etc. Rather then refer contractors, or service technicians to my clients, I just point them to Angie's List. A few reasons; they can pick their own company to use, read the reviews, and if they do not get quality they are not mad at me (for a bum referral), but they can write their rant review.
