What is the difference between a Boston roofer and say, an Arizona roofer? Lots. First and foremost, codes are state specific and what your Boston roofer is required to do will be completely different from a New Hampshire based contractor. The materials are different as well.

Materials vary dramatically from region to region. Here in the Northeast we deal with conditions not present in other regions. Ice dams are a huge issue in our area. Our codes reflect this, as well as with the mandatory ice and water shield installations. A boston roofer will use these materials on every job, where a handyman or out of state contractor may never use it. Frankly, an unscrupulous Boston roofer may also cut corners because quality materials are expensive. Ice dams result from heat from the house penetrating the roof sheathing and melting snow load, which trickles down to the roof edge and refreezes until water penetrates under the shingles and causes a leak.
On the flip side, a Boston roofer may not be familiar with clay tile or standing seam metal roofing systems. If you are looking for a quality boston roofer to install a specialty system ( or slate, or wood etc ) then you should specifically search for a specialist. Two good ways to find specialty boston roofers is to ask for a referral from a homeowner that has had a recent install, or barring that, ask a local distributor rep for a referral.
