Call a Pro at a Glance
Roof Types Serviced
Let’s get one thing straight. When you go on the Call a Pro website, don’t expect to walk away with an appointment for a roof specialist to be at your home the next day. Call a Pro is actually not a contractor, so this isn’t the case at all. Instead, Call a Pro offers homeowners a simple system for finding contractors in their area who deal with the kind of problems they have. So, if you’re looking for a roof restoration, a roof replacement, or a brand new roof installation, for example, you can use Call a Pro’s search engine to find roofing experts near you.
A good service that hosts a network of reputable contractors, Call a Pro partners with roofing professionals who specialize in projects like the following:

This is only a partial list of the roofing services available, of course. So, if you are looking for something more specific or specialized, then you'll do best to speak to one of the recommended contractors directly. They can tell you whether or not they deal with the particular services you require.
Once again, there’s a distinction that needs to be made between Call a Pro and the contractors in its network. The search engine services provided by Call a Pro are completely free of charge. You can search for and receive qualified local contractor leads directly on the website without having to pay for the service.
Once you start dealing with the actual contractors who will be doing work on your roof, that’s a different story. You cannot find specific pricing charts for the different types of roofing services you might need from a Call a Pro partner because each project’s pricing is individualized according to the specific project needs and particulars. For example, where you live, what type of roofing project you’re requesting, which materials you choose, and other details will determine the final cost of the roofing project.
If you want to get a personalized quote, you can speak directly with the contractors that Call a Pro suggests when you do a local search. Remember that you are not obligated to use the services even after you've been given a personalized quote. You can get quotes from multiple contractors, compare the terms, and go with one that works best for you (or none of them, if you wish).
Customer Service and Response Time
Call a Pro offers customer service both over the phone and via email. If you want an answer immediately, you can speak to a rep on the below-listed number. Otherwise, send an email, and a representative can answer your question during business hours.
In terms of emergency services or setting up an appointment with an actual contractor, that will have to be done directly through the contractor’s website or customer service. Hours, methods of communication, and levels of professionalism vary depending on the contractor you’re dealing with.
Additionally, Call a Pro is also eLocal.com certified. eLocal is a performance-based advertising company that connects consumers with quality local businesses. The services vets all its businesses, checking and verifying which are quality leads versus the shady businesses that don’t have any accreditations. What’s more, Call a Pro professional contractors are insured, licensed, and expert craftsmen and technicians. So, you are dealing with real professionals.
Call a Pro does not have any warranty on the roofing contractors that are found within the network. This isn’t unusual for the industry. But homeowners should be aware that they’ll need to verify personally whether or not a roofing specialist has a warranty on their work. Most contractors within the Call a Pro network do offer a guarantee. This may extend 30, 60, or more days and can include the parts and the labor. But again, check with the roofing expert before you have them do any work to determine what exactly is covered under the warranty, just to be safe.
