About Delaware Roofing
One of the most important professionals in construction is the roofing contractor. In addition to consultation, they're also responsible for roofing installation and repair. Roofing contractors recommend area-specific roofing systems. Roofing contractors who work on commercial buildings use tar, gravel and rubber-based materials. Those who work residentially use asphalt and metal materials. Some climates also allow the use of cedar shank roofing. Waterproofing and winterizing roofs are also part of a roofing contractor's job description.

The highest temperature recorded in Delaware was 110 degrees on July 21, 1930. The lowest temperature was -17 degrees on January 17, 1893. Both of these record temperatures were recorded in the town of Millsboro. The average recorded rainfall between 1971 to 2000 was 42.8 inches.

In the state of Delaware, roofing contractors who bid for jobs over $50,000 must obtain a license. The license must be renewed annually and obtained from the Delaware Division of Revenue. Nonresidents can obtain licenses, provided they have a surety bond for at least 6 percent of a year's contract work totaling $20,000. Roofing contractors must also get an annual Asbestos Abatement Certification.
