Need a New Roof – Lowe’s is the Place

If you need a new roof, make sure to look into Lowe’s.  They will actually come to your house, with the dimensions already drawn from a satellite image.  They will give you a quote on the spot.  They will find the local contractor, take care of the warranty work for the materials and give you a 12 month labor guarantee.  Unlike dealing with most local contractors, you can put it on your Lowe’s credit card at 5.99% interest for 84 months.  They do stand behind the work and make sure you are completely satisfied.  Their prices are very competitive with other bids you will receive.  Definitely worth looking into! (Make sure to have plenty of snacks available for the construction crew to keep them happy and working well!)
