EXPERIENCE THE MISTER SHINGLE DIFFERENCE
NOT ALL ROOFERS ARE CREATED EQUAL
There's a dirty secret among contractors that they don't want you to know about: NO ONE ACTUALLY WORKS FOR THE CONTRACTOR!!!
Most contractors SUBCONTRACT their work out to someone else, and it's usually the cheapest they can find. Most of the time, the subcontractors do what they want with little supervision from the actual roofing company, usually resulting in corners cut and shoddy workmanship. If your home was impacted by a major storm event, it makes it even harder to find a roofer who can even do the job at all!
In many areas, licensing requirements are lax, if even enforced at all. Most of the time, a minimum of only $100,000 in general liability insurance is required. Most contractors only carry the minimum to qualify for a license, and a large number don't even have any Workman's Compensation coverage. Not all jobs go according to plan, and roofing is an inherently dangerous job. If there's an accident or other damage to your property, there's a good chance your the one going to be footing the bill because your contractor is underinsured or possibly not insured at all!
At Mister Shingle, all of our crews, whether roofing, siding, gutters, or painting, all work directly for the company. There is no middle man. This gives us much more control over the process, from shingle delivery to tear-off, clean-up and disposal, to the quality of the finished product.
Mister Shingle is fully licensed, bonded, and insured for $1,000,000 in General Liability and Workman's Compensation Insurance with a $2,000,000 umbrella for your protection as a homeowner.

Meet the "Misters" in Mister Shingle
Hi, my name is Andy, and this is Gabe.
Mister Shingle was started by two friends came together working for a roofing company during Hurricane Katrina. By then, both had over 15 years experience in the roofing industry. They decided the only way they could offer the best quality service and workmanship was to simply do it themselves. Thus, Mister Shingle was born.
