I interviewed about 5 different roofing companies. Ranier Roofing impressed me with their professionalism and presentation. At first visit I was given 3 estimates and Danny explained in detail what the difference in price was. The roof installers were polite and cleaned up after each day of work. Everything looks good and just as expected. (8/21/19)
