Question DetailsAsked on 6/30/2014

How do you find an honest roofing contractor who will send an experienced roofer instead of salesmen to give a bid?

Several roofing companies have refused to answer questions regarding materials used, qualifications of installers, and contractor/manufacturer warranties. They refused to provide references that you are permitted to contact. In the interest of "privacy" you may only be given some addresses of customers. Is this typical?

In addition, many companies recommended on the NRCA site have many complaints regarding workmanship. How do I locate a good, honest roofer that works for himself? (Area north of Baltimore, MD - urgent need!)

Word of mouth is best - recommendation from neighbor who has done a recent reroof, from another building trades contractor you have had good luck with, coworkers, Angies List reviews, etc. And ones that have been in business under same company name for MANY years.

If they refuse to give references they must not have many people who liked their work. Unfortunately, from what I have seen on jobs and driving by worksites, I would not have about 80% of roofers on my property.
