The Ross Advantage


California requires residential roofing contractors to be licensed. Before hiring a contractor, make sure the company has a valid license in good standing.

Required Licenses

All Ross Roofing employees are licensed and bonded.

Roofing contractors should carry two types of insurance: workers’ compensation insurance and liability insurance. Without workers’ comp, you are responsible for paying for any injuries which occur on your property.

Insurance Coverage

All Ross Roofing employees and subcontractors carry both workers’ comp and liability insurances.
Roofing contractors should have an established history of doing excellent work in our area. Without that history, you have no way of knowing if a roofing contractor has the skills, experience, and results you deserve.

LongevityRoss Roofing is a family owned and operated roofing & solar business that has been in business since 1950. We service both commercial and residential areas.
Choosing the right roofing contractor is important, but so is choosing the right roofing products. Make sure your chosen contractor can provide you with great materials and a workmanship warranty.

MaterialsOur salespeople are experts on which materials work best in our Monterey Peninsula climate. With 68 years of experience, we know what materials work best in any local city.
You need to be able to easily communicate with the contractor. Roofers should willingly answer your questions and provide the information you need to make an informed decision about your roof.

Communication SkillsWe pride ourselves on being proactive, positive communicators. We love to keep you in the loop about your roof so that you don’t have to guess where we are in the building process.
Many roofing warranties are one-sided — against you, the homeowner. Even many years from now, you could be stuck with a roof repair bill and very little (if any relief) per your warranty’s terms and conditions.

Ask the roofing contractor if their employees and subcontractors are trained to do high-quality work. Insufficient training increases the risk of injuries and may even delay the completion of your roof.

Trained Employees or SubcontractorsOur offices are lined with our employees’ training certificates. Ask us who will be working on your roof, and about their depth of training!
Always insist on a written contract which protects both parties and reduces the financial risk of your investment. Then, before the contractor does any work on your roof, ask for a work plan. It will list all the materials to be used, the anticipated start and end date of the project, and other details about your roofing project.

Written Contract / Work PlanRoss Roofing insists on written contracts and work plans because it ensures we are both working off the same page — literally!
Talk with roofing contractors with a positive reputation in your community. If you don’t have a personal referral, read online reviews or check with the Better Business Bureau. You can always request references, too.
