You can, once signed in (so the search engine kows where you are located) selects the Roofing category, then put in Sears in the Search the List box and it will bring up local reviews - may be under Sears or Sears Roofing or Sears Home Services as a company name. Bear in mind, like with Lowes and Home Depot and such, the reviews under their name may be highly variable, depending on which specific subcontractor they use for the job - the crews do not work for Sears, they are subcontrators.
From word of mouth that I have heard not good, and considering that Sears appears to be on its last legs and well on the way to bankrupty, plus the fact it has reportedly basically stopped honoring its applinace and tool warranties, I would think twice. Especially if you expect to get any value out of the warranty - not worth anything if they go bankrupt. My recommendation, especially considering (in my opinion) that most home warranty and box store contractors are doing that work because their own reputation does not bring in enough work so they accept the quick-and-dirty low payment jobs from box stores. I would advise you to find a well-rated and reviewed long-time local roofing contractor (or preferably about 3-4 if this is a new roof or total reroof rather than a minor repair) to give you bids, because while a good contractor can generally do an acceptable job with even box-store quality materials, a poor contractor can generally be counted on to make a mess of even the best materials.
