About Me

Hi, my name is Craig, and this blog is for anyone who needs to know about roofers and roofing. When I needed a new roof on my office building, I wasn't sure what type of roof I needed. I wanted a roof that would be energy efficient, but I also wanted to stay within my business budget. Before choosing the roofing materials, I talked with several roofing contractors and other business owners about the different kinds of roofing materials that are available.
