Md Roofing Questions We
Answer Often . . .
Q: How do I know if I need a new roof?
A: If your roofing is buckled, there are missing shingles, it's
leaking, or there are shingle pieces or granules coming out of your downspouts -- you need to have your roof
inspected for a replacement. Roofing shingles of "a few years back" don't often last as long as the warranty.
You may just need a roof repair, however. So before you commit to a new roof, contact us to get a roof repair
evaluation. Sometimes a repair is all you need. We'll tell you if that's the case, and show you digital pictures
to prove it. We specialize in roof repairs too, and will tell you exactly what you need to do -- whatever is in
your best interest.
Many roofing companies do not want to do roof repairs and will recommend a roof replacement no matter
what! It happens a lot, folks.
Q: How much does a roof estimate cost?
A: Believe it or not, many Md roofing contractors now charge for estimates. We don't. Our Roofing Estimates are FREE!
Q: Do I need to be home to get an
A: You do not need to be home for us to
perform and inspection and estimate. All we need is your permission to get up on your roof, make the analysis,
take some digital pictures, and video.
Q: What's included in a roof estimate?
A: Your roof estimate link will arrive in your email, and when you click on the link you'll get:
- Pictures with text showing you what I found
- Options that you have
- Samples for you to see
- A detailed written proposal
- Pricing with no hidden add-ons
Everything you could want to make an informed decision. And it's totally customized . . . the pictures, video
and diagrams are of your roof, not some standardized junk. No standard forms with 'fill in the blanks' and 'check
boxes', I promise.

later -- so that you can see that the work was done correctly, and as expected.

A: Yes, we do lots of insurance work, and we're very good at
negotiating with insurance companies. Most homeowners are not experienced in dealing with insurance adjusters, so
we can really be of help! We can help you get the money you deserve.
One of our advantages is the ability to post damage pictures online, where the adjusters can quickly access and
print them. By helping them do their job, we're often helping you get a check faster.
Q: Will my homeowners insurance pay for a new

damage, your homeowner's insurance will often pay for a new roof, parts of a roof, or repairs -- minus the
deductible, of course. It depends on many factors, including the ability of the contractor to negotiate with the
