Roof Materials, Contractors, Repair and Roofing Price Guides

This Roofing Tutor will answer your questions about roofing and to give you the information you need to make great choices for your home roof.  Many of our customers are homeowners who plan to hire a local roofer to do the work. Their goals include learning when repairs or replacement are needed, what their choices are, and knowing enough about roofing to be able to make good decisions rather than leaving them in the hands of a roofing contractor.

Other readers are homeowners with the DIY skills to handle the project themselves.  They consult the Roofing Tutor to get input on common roofing problems and repairs from our Roof Repair Guides, research and compare Roofing Materials, and to learn about the equipment they’ll need to get the job done.

Practical Tips for All Homeowners

On the pages of the Roofing Tutor, there is a wealth of practical information you can use whether you are doing the job yourself or not.  We’ll show you how to save money on materials and/or labor.  We give detailed overviews about the most common types of materials along with their strengths and relative costs.  Browse the Roofing Tutor and you’ll learn from every page!

Find a Qualified Contractor

There are probably dozens of roofers in your area, but not all of them have the experience, the skills or the highly trained crews to do a superior job for you.  Roof repairs and roof installation have to be done correctly or you’ll have ongoing problems until they are fixed.  The Roofing Tutor will teach you how to find a contractor you can trust to do the job right the first time.
