Our team at Cert-A-Roof® is passionate about what we do, Roof Inspections and Roof Certifications. This is because we strive to fulfill our mission of protecting our customers through keeping the first line of defense strong: their roof. After we finish inspecting, repairing, or certifying a roof, our mission is one step closer to being complete.

In 1993, he combined his application of genuine customer service, his spirit of entrepreneurship and his passion for roofing, in order to create what Cert-A-Roof® now stands for: a business that adds value to every customer through quality roofing and quality protection.
