As a licensed and insured roofing contractor, we have repaired roofing projects completed by unqualified and sometimes unethical contractors on too many occasions. We’ve heard the stories too many times. To add insult to injury, the contractor that installed the roof cannot be found.
Many of these situations have come up from the property owner opting for what seems like the low cost option. Only to be frustrated when they have to pay hundreds or thousands to correct what the previous roofing company failed to do correctly. It is rare for these low cost roofers to be able to meet the service expectations.
Stinson Services takes pride in our high praise from the Minnesota Better Business Bureau, Google reviews, Nextdoor and Thumbtack as well as a long list of previous homeowners willing to share their experiences.
