Roofer recommendations - Rockville,MD area and other qns..

greenfingernailJuly 26, 2010

Hi -

Looks like the 2010 winter snow and yesterday's storm has taken a toll on our 22yr-old roof which has begun a leak.


AAA) We were looking for a local Rockville/Montgomery county area roofer - any recommendations would be welcome.

BBB) Not sure whether we should locate the leak, patch and correct or go for a new roof.

CCC) If new, not sure whether solar's still too early/experimental to try - whether there may be tax/other incentives that will make it worth it..

And finally (!!)

DDD) Not sure whether insurance will pick up any of the tab...

What do y'all think??

With a 22 y.o. roof, tear it off and replace it.
Ask neighbors for references; get two or three bids.
I doubt insurance would cover much, if any of it.
What type of solar system are you wondering about? Some are experimental while others have been around a while.
Ask the contractor about tax advantages for the various products.

We used Marshall Roofing, Very good company and they are also going to do my parents roof. They were quick and very straight forward with everything. You will get a typed written estimate, before they leave. Also, they don't hesitate to tell you if you don't need a new roof, they said my parents can go another 3-5 years before it needs to be replaced.

If you have any questions, let me know.

I am not affiliated with them, just a very happy customer.

Ps I live in g'burg...
