Things to look for when hiring a roofing specialist:

Good for the local company bad for you because when they leave your the one that will have a hard time getting them back to fix anything.
- Many roofing companies start after a hail storm and then go out of business a year later, leaving the homeowner with a leaky roof and no warranty.
