Roofr Vs. 'The Big Guys'
Since Roofr’s launch just a few months ago many people have asked how we can possibly save customers so much money, and do so without sacrificing the quality of both workmanship and material. The answer is ingrained in the basic principal of who we are. We are ‘Roofing Simplified’. After many years in the traditional roofing industry, we’ve witnessed the seemingly endless inefficiencies and subsequent costs of the standard roofing operation. We’ve decided to do our best to change that.
How do most roofing companies work?
Let’s start by talking about ‘the other guys’. Why are large roofing contractors charging an arm and a leg to get the job done?
When it comes down to it, big roofing contractors are essentially marketing giants; consisting of elaborate tiers and avenues to be navigated. When you, the homeowner, call up one of the big guys and ask for a quote, they proceed to send out a sales rep to convince you their high price point is necessary.
They will then call up a guy who will probably call up another guy, who might just be the guy that installs your new roof. Large scale roofing companies subcontract 100% of ‘their work’ and tack on an additional markup as high as 50%.
That massive markup is necessary for these giants to survive. It’ll cover over head costs, sales staff commission, marketing departments, accounting departments, project managers, and so on and so forth. In the end you’re paying not only for your roof replacement, but for the big guys to keep the many archaic aspects of their business operational.

There are quite a few ‘fly-by-night’ roofing companies that often don’t have proper insurance, certifications, or WSIB clearance. There can be no guarantee of the experience they provide or most importantly, the end result. Be wary of these companies; if it seems too good to be true, it probably is.
All of Roofr’s installation teams have been hand selected based on reviews, years in business, amount of jobs completed, insurance, certifications and overall workmanship. You can rest easy knowing that your roof is in capable and reputable hands, and you didn’t have to spend that arm or leg to make it happen!
