I recently had a customer ask me,“Why should I hire a builder to replace my roof, instead of a roofer?” That’s a great question, and I welcome the opportunity to answer it!

Need a new roof? Here’s why you should hire a builder, not a roofer.

What roofers do:

Most roofers simply repair, install, and replace roofs. They’re adept at tearing off shingles, repairing or replacing the decking where needed, and installing new roofing materials. Ask one to take a look at your roof and there's a good chance they’ll agree that you need a new one and give you a quote for the project. Most will do a good job and your new roof will look great.

What builders do:

Most roofers don’t take the time to identify or explain the cause of your roofing trouble. Not every roofing problem is caused by old age. Sometimes, there are structural or environmental issues at the root of it. A reputable builder like Jesse James Roofing & General Contracting  will thoroughly inspect your roof and look for signs of trouble, including:

Before we replace a roof, we want to ensure that any presenting problems are addressed. A good roof is only as good as its surrounding structures and the decking below it. If we identify any issues that will give you trouble in the future, you can be assured we’ll tell you about them.
