What should I look for when selecting a contractor?2020-03-19T02:45:27-04:00
  • A contractor rooted in their vision and values that align with your own
  • Preferred by a leading manufacturer
  • Local!
  • Licensed, bonded, and insured
  • Reputable

Trust, Simplicity, Excellence, Professionalism, Customer Success

When selecting a contractor it is paramount that you identify a company that resonates with you as an individual. Although it is easy to be swayed by marketing materials, a flashy sales pitch, or a low price, a company that aligns with your values and is committed to servicing your home and your overall wellbeing is a company you want to partner with. If you can align on those values than you place your trust in the fact that your contractor will partner with you to deliver you with the best service, products, installation, price, and professionalism in a transparent way.

To learn more about our vision and values. Take a look at our About or Our Team page. Learn a bit about why selecting Simple Roofing LLC as your contractor is more about a human partnership rather than a service.

Simple Roofing LLC is an Owens Corning Preferred Contractor

The cost to boot up a roofing or general contracting company is low. Anyone can take their truck, slap a logo on it, and start throwing shotty quality products and installation on people’s homes. Selecting a contractor who is backed by the largest shingle manufacturer in the United States, Owens Corning, ensures that you are getting a top-notch contractor. Owens Corning carefully selects their preferred contractors because their name, reputation, and warranty depend on it!

As a preferred contractor, Simple Roofing LLC can offer extended warranties that other roofers cannot. Additionally, you can be sure that the roof is being installed correctly because we have been vetted by Owens Corning. This is critical because even if you were to pick a lifetime warranty shingle if it is not installed correctly Owens Corning will not warranty the work or materials.


Picking a local contractor is important for a number of reasons:

  1. If for some reason something was to go wrong or your roof was to leak, we will be here to honor our warranty
  2. When storms roll through you will see 15-25 roofing companies you have never heard of who are here chasing a storm. They may have even grabbed a business address and changed their name to sound local. BE CAUTIOUS – they are here to make a quick buck off the storm and leave. When they do, they will not be here to service their poor installation by their traveling crew.
  3. Supporting local businesses is what stimulates the growth of our community. Creating money velocity on a local level will cause all of the community to flourish.
  4. We are your neighbor! We have been here our whole lives and know so many of you. We are someone you can trust.

Licensed. Bonded. Insured.

This one is easy. Small companies who are trying to reduce their overhead and increase their margins will skip paying for these vital policies that protect you as a homeowner. Simple Roofing LLC is licensed with the state, carries a bond should we fail to complete the scope of work that you may collect, and insured to protect you as a homeowner from any unexpected property, or personal harm.

Do I need an estimate for my insurance claim?2020-03-19T02:58:04-04:00

Once a claim on your roof has been filed and approved, the insurance company is going to write the initial estimate for us. (Insurance Process) The insurance company will assign an adjuster to your claim who will decide the full scope of work and produce an itemized loss sheet with fair market pricing for the work to be completed by Simple Roofing LLC. If we were to provide an estimate we would be guessing at the scope of work. It is worth noting that the insurance estimate is not final. Simple Roofing LLC will work to supplement their claim for any items that may be missing or you may be owed as a homeowner.

Your contract with us, under the price, will say “work to be completed per insurance agreement”.

Another contractor said they’d waive my deductible, will you?2020-03-19T03:08:10-04:00

If we could, we would! Unfortunately, waiving a deductible is insurance fraud. There are many companies who will still offer this or tell you it’s safe because they treat it as a marketing incentive for staking a sign in your yard…this is still fraud. We understand the allure but be aware if the insurance company were to discover this, it is not just the contractor who is on the hook, it is also you as the homeowner.

Another contractor can do the job for less than the insurance company is paying, can I pocket the difference?2020-03-19T03:15:56-04:00

Sadly, like waiving a deductible this is insurance fraud. A homeowner cannot financially benefit from their claim in any way. In this instance, you would be defrauding the insurance company in terms of what it costs to do the repair.

Once may claim is filed and I am assigned an Adjuster will you meet with them?2020-03-19T03:21:40-04:00

The insurance adjuster will come to your home to assess the damage determine if there is enough damage to warrant a replacement or repair of your roof, gutters, siding, screens, and other exterior items. Your Dedicated Simple Roofing Expert has trained on insurance claims and will walk the property with your insurance adjuster to help them identify damage to ensure your home has the best possibility to a valid claim.

Will filing a claim cause my rates to go up?2020-03-19T03:26:18-04:00

Chances are if you are filing a claim your neighbors already have or are currently in the process of doing so. For claims of this type, the rates are determined by zip code via an actuarial calculation of risk. Essentially if a neighborhood is hit with storm damage and your neighbors’ file a claim, your premiums will go up the following year but the increase should be small. Based on this, if your neighbors are filing claims we would strongly encourage you to do the same.
