The Ross Advantage

Please horizontally scroll the table below.

REQUIRED LICENSES
OTHERS
ROSS ROOFING
California requires residential roofing contractors to be licensed. Before hiring a contractor, make sure the company has a valid license in good standing. All Ross Roofing employees are licensed and bonded.
INSURANCE COVERAGE
OTHERS
ROSS ROOFING
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. All Ross Roofing employees and subcontractors carry both workers comp and liability insurance.
LONGEVITY
OTHERS
ROSS ROOFING
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 Ross Roofing is a family owned and operated roofing & solar business that has been in business since 1950. We service both commercial and residential areas.
MATERIALS
OTHERS
ROSS ROOFING
Not only is choosing the right roofing contractor critically important, but also choosing the right roofing product, with the right materials and workmanship warranty, is crucial as well. Our salespeople are experts in what materials work best in our Monterey Peninsula climate. With 68 years experience, we know what materials work best in any local city.
COMMUNICATION SKILLS
OTHERS
ROSS ROOFING
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. We pride ourselves on being proactive, positive communicators. We love to keep you in the loop about your roof, so you don’t have to guess where we are in the building process.
WARRANTY
OTHERS
ROSS ROOFING
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. Click here to see why Ross Roofing’s warranty is one of the best around, and protects you, the homeowner!
TRAINED EMPLOYEES OR SUBCONTRACTORS
OTHERS
ROSS ROOFING
Ask the roofing contractor if their employees/subcontractors are trained to do high-quality work. Insufficient training increases the risk of injuries, and may even delay the completion of your roof. Our offices are lined with our employees’ training certificates of completion. Ask us who will be working on your roof, and about their training depth!
WRITTEN CONTRACT / WORK PLAN
OTHERS
ROSS ROOFING
Always insist on a written contract which protects both parties and reduces the financial risk of making such a big 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. Ross Roofing insists on written contracts and work plans, because it ensures we are both working off the same page — literally!
POSITIVE REPUTATION
OTHERS
ROSS ROOFING
Talk with roofing contractors with a positive reputation in your community. Absent a personal referral, read online reviews or check with the Better Business Bureau. And check their references, too. Ross Roofing’s 5-star rating, plus its A+ BBB rating, makes us a very credible business to bid on your roofing project!
NON-COMMISSIONED SALES
OTHERS
ROSS ROOFING
Commissioned salespeople will often price gouge you, leaving you to pay more (so they make larger commissions). Ross Roofing’s salespeople are on salary, not commission, so you can be assured that you’re getting the best deal possible.
