We at Crown Roofing do not believe in “guesstimating” and will provide a firm written estimate that leaves nothing to chance. As each home is totally unique with its own special needs we will be looking at home size, whether one or two stories, single or multiple car garages – if attached or detached, steepness of roof pitch, terrain accessibility of your home, as well as existing roof conditions such as dry rot, or whether or not the house requires plywood. These are some factors that will be considered when estimating the cost of a new roof
Crown Roofing is a family owned and operated business, 3 generations strong, which was originally established in 1973. Because we are a smaller company, our business model and operating costs are very lean and kept to a minimum. Lower operating costs translates into savings for you, the homeowner, as well as a tighter rein on our quality control ensuring a quick, efficient, and professional installation.

Indeed it will. A building permit will be secured prior to commencement of work. All city and or county building inspections will be completed as required by local jurisdictions and the original signed off inspection record will be yours upon completion.
