In the Milwaukee and Whitefish Bay area, there is certainly no shortage of fly-by-night roofing contractors. In order to filter out the disreputable contractors and find the best in the business, there are a few key considerations of which you should take note. Community Roofing and Restoration would enjoy the opportunity to be considered against these factors because we believe it will become clear that we’re the best choice for residential roofing in the Milwaukee and Whitefish Bay area.


If a prospective contractor isn’t bonded and insured, stay away. If a contractor doesn’t possess license bonding and insurance, it is likely that there are issues with the way they do business. You are headed down a dangerous road when you take a risk on a contractor that doesn’t have bonding and insurance.


A reputable contractor doesn’t need fancy ad campaigns, slogans or jingles. The work speaks for itself, through the voices of satisfied customers. When it comes to residential roofing, a satisfied customer will make a point to promote their positive experience with their contractor to other potential customers, and at Community Roofing and Restoration, we’ve seen it first hand. Just take a look at our Testimonials page for many examples of customers that are thrilled with our work.


Look for contractors with certifications, accreditations, and positive reviews online. Organizations and services such as the Better Business Bureau, Angie’s List, Yellow Pages, Yelp, and Facebook have a wealth of information about contractors. It takes an extra special experience to motivate a customer to post a positive review online, so you can put great stock in the words of these satisfied customers. Feel free to peruse the online reviews of Community Roofing and Restoration and you’ll see happy customers abound.

When you’ve made your decision, there are still factors to consider before you write a check. The estimate and scope of work is a critical indicator of the competency of your contractor. Make sure your estimate is accurate and complete, and read your contract carefully before signing.

If you sense that your contractor is skimping on the work to save costs, or that details are left out in order to save time and lower costs, your project could be in trouble. Moreover, roofing jobs can be dangerous, and inexperienced workers can put themselves at risk. You don’t want to be involved in a situation where a worker is injured on your property due to negligence by an employer who was cutting corners.
