Any recommendations for a roofer in SF?

Asked by E, San Francisco, CA Sun May 20, 2012

I need a new roof, and have gotten a couple high end quotes from high end roofers. Wondering if anyone has a recommendation for a "mid range" roofer. The Re-Cole-Mend service only got me two low quality guys.

Have you tried asking your family and friends in your area? That is usually a pretty good way to find referrals. Nobody refers someone they hate to someone they like. I would try asking around and making some calls. http://easttexasroofworks.com/

I agree that finding a roofer can be somewhat difficult. If I were you, I would suggest calling friends and family in your area who have had to hire a roofer before. Their experience should be able to help you find what you're looking for and fit it in your price range. I would highly recommend calling them as soon as you can! http://www.affordableroofingfl.net

E. One problem is finding the right contractor for your job. Then it's price and scheduling. The best
contractors tend to stay very busy.

Buyer beware: there are many roofing materials used, and many systems. They are not all equal. Each system has pros and cons, so doing a great deal of patient homework is important, unless you
already have your mind made up, or just want to fix and flip. Some systems are DIY and fast, others are technical, and time consuming. Even a badly done job may last many years before it fails (usually out of warranty), or due to faulty workmanship which most insurers don't cover for the contractor who installed it.

The most important references would be from owners of homes reroofed 10-20 years ago. Everyone
who's roof doesn't leak today is a satisfied customer today. It means very little.

And when you've made up your mind, don't hesitate to negotiate. There's no secret little rating system used to provide you a fair price. It's all about whatever an estimator thinks he can get out of
you. Much like buying a car.

I like how you included some criteria besides cost. I need a new roof, and I am mainly concerned about the quality of work. It makes sense that the best contractors are the hardest to schedule. I would be willing to wait if it means getting the most competent roofer.

I had a new roof put on my home a few years back. We also had a few quotes done. Getting a new roof makes a big difference for the appearance of your home!

We used Excelsior Roofing. Easy to work with. Seem like honest guys. Not sure if the are considered "mid-range". Good luck.
