What to Look for in a Roofer

It’s smart to shop around for the right contractor whenever you’re having work done on your home. After all, shoddy work can leave you with plumbing leaks, HVAC unit breakdowns, or renovations that just look bad. That’s why it’s crucial to find an expert when it comes to repairs and renovations for your abode. And your roof is no exception. You should be sure to weigh your options in your search for the best roofer in the area. You

Reviews & Testimonials

First thing’s first, you should take a look at the reviews and testimonials that each contractor has. Check HomeAdvisor, Houzz, Angie’s List, and Google (among other sites) to see what folks are saying about a contractor’s work. You’ll find out whether or not a contractor is consistent and reliable, or if their workmanship and customer service may not be the highest quality. Rock Solid is a Top Rated company by HomeAdvisor, and we have a Best of Houzz Award for Service in 2017.

Licensing & Insurance

You should always find a contractor who is licensed and insured to do the job. Otherwise, you aren’t working with a professional. If you hire an uninsured or unlicensed roofer, then you won’t be protected should an accident happen while they’re on your property. Moreover, any warranty covering roofing material that you may have been able to obtain will be voided. You may not even be able to properly insure your home against unforeseen damage. Ask for credentials when you call a roofing company.


Experience goes a long way in this business. Alongside experience you’ll get a better finished product and a quicker turnaround time, so that you can rest assured that your roof will be ready when you need it, and it will last as long as it was designed to last. Here at Rock Solid Exteriors, we have 25 years of experience helping folks with their roofs and exteriors throughout Michigan. You can trust that the roof over your head will be around as long as we’ve been around (if not longer!).

Guaranteed Workmanship

Roof work can be expensive. And if it’s performed poorly, it can be costly to replace or repair your roof. You should find a company that guarantees their workmanship. Ask around to see which contractors offer guarantees for both their workmanship and the roofing materials used. Here at Rock Solid Exteriors, we’ve partnered with Owens Corning® to provide both a Lifetime Warranty for their shingles as well as warranty coverage for our workmanship. So, if you should have a problem with your roof, we can fix it without having to spend another dime.

Full Service

For larger projects, you may want to look for a crew that does it all. For instance, if you’re redoing your roof, and you’ve noticed that you have poor insulation, and your gutters could use replacing, it’ll be worthwhile to find a contractor that can tackle all of the projects surrounding your home’s exterior. Rock Solid offers a litany of surfaces, going above and beyond the traditional roofing company. You can count on us to install roofing, siding, gutters, insulation, windows, and doors. We even offer exterior painting services. Save money and keep things simple by calling one contractor to complete all of the work that you need completed.
