Roofing Companies in Washington D.C.: What Every Homeowner Should Know

Friday, January 10th, 2014 by Danny Peterson

Are you looking to have a new roof installed? Homeowners in the District of Columbia are in luck!

There are several roofing companies in Washington D.C., ready and able to provide all the roofing contract work necessary. Even better, while a new roof is a significant investment, it is also a significant addition to the value of a home. In fact, when an old roof is removed and replaced with something new and modern, it can transform the look, style, comfort, and energy efficiency of the home – all while also reducing ongoing maintenance requirements. However, before calling one of the roofing companies in Washington D.C., there are a few important considerations for homeowners to make. Read on for our roof replacement checklist—written with District homeowners in mind!

Don’t Forget the Curb Appeal

Did you know that the roof makes up about 40 percent of your home’s visible exterior? It’s true, and it underscores the fact that a great deal of your home’s style and aesthetic is established by the roof. This is simply to say that, when picking a new roof, it is imperative to keep aesthetics on your radar. Do not spring for a “cheap” roofing material if you know it is going to look dreadful; this will hardly boot your homeowner self-confidence, any more than it will boost the value of the home.

Choosing the Right Contractor

Also note that, while there are many roofing companies in Washington D.C., not all of them are created equal. It is vital to get the best contractor possible, which means doing your homework. A reputable roofing contractor will have a permanent place of business, a phone number, a tax identification number, and a business license. Liability insurance is also strongly encouraged. Make sure to ask for proof of all of these things before settling on a roofing contractor, or else you may end up with someone disreputable.

Get Written Agreements

Even when you are dealing with an honest and trustworthy roofing companies, it never hurts to get everything in writing; this shows that everyone is one the same page. Make sure your roofer delivers a written proposal that indicates the type of roofing, the materials, the color, the scope of the work, and an approximate timetable. Of course, factors such as weather can prevent the roof from being completed at the precise time specified, but a good roofer will at least be able to offer an estimate.

Ask About Other Options

Remember that if this is your first new roof in 15 or 20 years, there have surely been some significant advances in roofing technology. In particular, you might ask about some of the options available to you with regards to attic ventilation, skylights, and other new developments.

See It First

One thing homeowners can consider, when working with one of the fine roofing companies in Washington D.C., is to ask that company to offer some indication of how a new roof will look. Major Roofing material manufacturers have on their web sites the rendition of a similar home to yours and provide you with how it might look with different roofing materials. This can provide you with confidence that you are selecting the best-looking material for your new roof.

Choose Integrity Home Pro

The bottom line is that a new roof is a big and exciting commitment, and one that requires a little bit of homework on the front end. We recommend doing plenty of research into the roofing companies in Washington D.C., and selecting one that is known for treating homeowners the right way. Integrity Home Pro is one such roofing company; we are committed to delivering value, and to always performing the job exactly how we say we will. For more information, contact us today!

Recently we hired Integrity Pro to design and complete a combination bathroom and Laundry room in our basement.We knew for quite sometime this would be a big time consuming job. We actually interview at least 6 other construction companies. We found out that a lot of plumbers were not interested in the construction aspects of this type of work. We found out that anyone offering to do this for 7-8 thousand dollars was not trustworthy.More than once we were ready to pull the trigger only to walk back from the ledge for different reasons.The first thing that stood out on the Integrity estimate was that big fat liability policy that was part of the estimate proposal. As a retired Casualty Insurance Professional this was definitely a determining factor. The other was the fixture allowance.But it did take 2-3 conversations to lead to the big hand shake.Then the next “feel good” factor was Alberto the lead carpenter. He came in on a Saturday after the plumber because he needed to get a jump on things. He worked every Saturday until finished.We saw Mike the Project Manager like 4 times. Very reassuring.The door to the laundry room needed some creative thinking. Once again great results.For us this was a once in a life time project, we had much to loose if done incorrectly, but much to gain when done right. That is where we are, on the plus side. Well done.Anthony Bynum

This company is very responsive. Not only did Danny (owner) listen to our concerns, but he heard our concerns. Many days, I was leaving as the workers arrived. Danny would leave post it notes to ensure the contractors addressed any concerns from the day before. The contractors are very respectful of our home. They cleaned up every afternoon so as not to leave our house in disarray.My fireplace turned out beautifully. My bathroom doors were moved and the new locking barn darns turned out beautifully. Danny is having a custom threshold designed to make the transition between too rooms seamless. Danny took a load barring wall down to open up the kitchen and the back room. Danny ensured the openings to these rooms were at least 36 inches. Ensuring the house is ADA accessible was very important to me.

Our project coordinator on site was Alberto. He was so fastidious, and was so committed to making the job look fantastic at the end. He even came back after he realized he forgot to put some thing on our final cabinet installation even thought he was in his truck, on his way out. He was just so excellent and we can’t have asked for a better project result.

I’m so happy to have found Integrity Home Pro! After working with multiple contractors on various house projects, Integrity Home Pro has been a breath of fresh air. They’re professional, courteous, knowledgeable, reliable, show up when they say they’re going to, and are quick to respond to phone calls and emails. Not only that, their work is excellent. We hired them to renovate a bathroom and were so impressed we hired them to renovate our sunroom and kitchen and make various improvements around the outside of our home. I cannot recommend them highly enough and will work with them again for any future home improvements.

My wife and I reached out to Integrity Home Pro for a quote to repair/replace wood under our bay windows that started rotting years ago. Within a few days, we had an estimate with several different options, and reasonable price set for the work done, as well as an estimate for how long the work would take.Within 3 weeks, Integrity Home Pro sent out their team to replace our rotted wood with panels and had finished the work within the time originally estimated. We're so happy with the work they've done, that we will certainly be reaching out again for more work on our home.Long and short: Integrity Home Pro has shown us professional courtesy, impressive workmanship, and genuine care for our needs. The quality of service is a rarity, and we plan on reaching out to Integrity again in the near future.Photos provided to show the before and after

Integrity Home Pro was a pleasure to work with. I had extensive hail damage to my house and the process of getting information to my insurance and approval for a full replacement was a long process. Ben at Integrity was very patient and extremely helpful every step of the way. He assisted with everything the insurance needed so that now I have a new roof and siding. The installers were outstanding and when they were finished you could not see any debris on the lawn or damage to any bushes. I used Integrity about 10 years ago for the previous roof that the hail damaged ( I thought they were terrific then) and I think they only have improved with time. I highly recommend them!

Integrity Home Pro did an excellent job at remodeling our bathroom. They are very skilled, professional, and they work together to get the job done in a timely fashion. They were very patient, attentive, and courteous, and always kept us abreast every step of the way. Our newly remodeled bathroom exceeds our expectations and is simply beautiful. We could not have asked for a more dedicated and devoted team.

Integrity Home Pro were very pleasant and easy to work with when our roof was damaged by a tree branch. They replaced my roof quickly in the morning. Also, I am a returning customer knowing they did a great job replacing my roof 20 years ago.

Integrity Home-Pro just completed remolding our kitchen. The process took two weeks. Elmer Lopez did the work. He worked non-stop everyday; his workmanship is premium. Tera Ingwersen guided us through the process from the office on a regular basis and was always available to answer questions. Integrity's quote for the work was significantly less than a quote given by another company. Integrity's owner, Danny Peterson, personally came when we called about getting a quote. He followed up on two occasions as the work was being done. Integrity Home Pro has done other major projects on our home and we have been pleased each time.
