Roofing Contractors


Are roofing contractors becoming more easily available in the northeast with the downturn in housing, or are they as hard to get as a year ago?

IMHO: When you look through the media hype, you don't see much non-new construction going on. So if you want a tradesperson, you might have to wait. This gives you time to get references, and estimates.
good luck,

Hi tom,
thanks for your response.
just wanted to confirm that you mean that I will still have trouble getting a contractor for a roofing repair job. does that mean that it is business as usual for these guys. Apart from my interest in getting a repair job done, I am also an investor, and am curious how the current downturn is impacting the roofing industry.

I would not think that roofing contractors are effected much by the economy. After all you can not put off fixing a roof. It is more a need that a want item.

IMHO:
Good roofers don't work for builders. Builders are targeting low cost for high profits. So Good Roofers tend to be out of their price range. Good Roofers are repairing the junk they are putting on new houses. :D
Get yourself a good set of references from neighbors, check the BBB, and talke to several roofers. Understand like trying to get an appointment to a medical specialist, you might have to wait.
The wait is ok, since "WE" should be replacing/repairing our roofs before the end of life. ;) Yeah right.
