Is a roof contractors experience more important than the quality of the shingle?
My 3 choices with price NOT being an issue.
1 Should I use an experienced GAF Master Elite roofer installing a
GAF Timberline HD Reflector, with a 10 year labor warranty.
No 25 year labor Golden Pledge option, because my mobile home does not allow the installation of a GAF ridge vent.
2 An roofing company with more than 25 years in business, installing the Certainteed Landmark shingle with a 5 year labor warranty.
3 A roofer that just started a new company, with a 10 year labor warranty. Using Owens Corning Duration Cool.
Consumers Reports says to hire a contractor with at least 5 years experience and good local reviews and use a high quality shingle. They also give a high rating to the Owens Corning Duration shingle.
I live in a mobile home in San Jose CA.
My mobile home is 20 years old and 1600 square feet.
Insurance is covering most of my re-roof cost.
My insurance company said that I should send him 3 bids including the one that I am choosing.
