It has been suggested that approximately 4.5% (22 billion pounds) of the waste dumped in landfills each year across the U.S. is roofing materials from tear-offs during reroofing jobs.… Continue reading

The roofer seems like a nice enough guy and his roofing estimate is even nicer—hundreds, maybe thousands of dollars, less than the roofing estimates you’ve received from other San Mateo County roofing companies. Stop! Before you sign a roofing contract or give a roofer a deposit, give serious thought about why this roofer’s bid is so unbelievably low.

The roofer says he’s just got a few guys working for him so insurance isn’t necessary. Perhaps residential roofing is his side job to earn a little extra… Continue reading
