Question DetailsAsked on 3/31/2014

I'd like to know which would be a better chose for a large residential roofing job, Home Depot or Lowes

Though both Lowes and Home Depot are reputable companies, they more than likely do nt do their own repair work and job this out to another contractor. I would think you can find a company here on Angies list that specializes in roof rfeplacement and actually save some money.

Also if your roof repair is due to storm damage , check your home owners policy, your replacement may be covered.

you may want to reconsider that all together, they do have deep pockets and are secure with being able to find them, but all there work is subcontracted and I can assure you that you will be paying 35% to 40% more to them then a local established roofing company.

best of luck with your project

I agree with the above answer. Both companies do not do the work with their own crews but use subcontractors. It is a roll of the dice as to whether you get one of the good ones or not. I would start with some you can find here or ask around in your local area. Keep your eyes open as you are driving around and if you see a roof being done in a nice neat and orderly fashion either stop and ask or jot down the phone number and name if they have a job sign. It is ay nicer to deal first hand with the contractor that is going to be working on your home and not some big company that is just sending out whoever is available. If after getting priced by a few locals you want to check with the big box stores you could and at least then you would have an idea as to what the job should cost and will better prepared to resist a hard sell salesman.
