Roof was leaking last year and needed somebody to handle the repairs immediately. Called Dominion Roofing and I’m glad I did. They got the job done and haven’t had any problems with the roof ever since.

Bill came to my home to inspect the water damage in a bedroom closet and quickly figured out the issue was with the shingles on the roof. He was able to make the necessary repairs at the moment and we have not had anymore issues with the roof. I highly recommend Dominion Roofing for the professional way they do business.

Over the last couple years we had shingles blown off and repaired by other companies. Well after the last wind storm i decided to just get the whole roof replaced since the shingles the builder put on our house were not rated for the MD weather, they were rated for FL weather. Dominion Roofing came out and did the estimate, wearing a mask and other safety stuff. In a couple weeks we had a new roof being put on and it looks great! The team did a great job and was very professional and friendly. I was surprised how they combed our whole yard with the magnet rake to make sure they got all the nails up! I highly recommend their service to anyone!

These guys do great work, always prompt, good value and great results. I had a minor roof emergency last year and the Dominion team was here ASAP and fixed the leak before the inside sustained any real damage. Would definitely recommend.

They did a great job coming out to assess my roof, and were quite accommodating for some funky payment hurdles that we got stuck with before work began. The work itself was done incredibly quickly, and we're happy with the new roof!

Dominion Roofing Co is great! We found ourselves in an insurance situation which required us to have our roof replaced within a 2 week period. Knowing how backed up a lot of companies are, I called Dominion Roofing Co and explained our situation. Bill could not have been more accommodating. He informed me that fitting us in would not be a problem and it wasn't. We had our roof replaced and our insurance situation resolved within the allotted time period. I am very pleased with the work that was done and would highly recommend them to anyone.

Anyone looking to replace their roof or remodel your roof look no further! We scheduled everything from out of state being military and flew into town with a short window to get our home ready for sale. Bill and his team went above and beyond arriving early and completing our roof in Kensington, MD on time and to perfection. His crew was extremely professional, hardworking, and well managed. The value he provides is well beyond other competitors and his pricing is fair. Considering the logistics of setting everything up from out of state he couldn’t have made us more comfortable and had impeccable follow up. Thank you Dominion, your work is unmatched and we couldn’t be more pleased. P.S. the office staff are also the kindest employees, they make you feel like family and take a real interest in trying to help and getting to know each job/customer.

Excellent Job - I had Dominion Roofing replace my roof over the Christmas holidays. Yes, it's taken me awhile to write this review, but I wanted to wait and see if any roofing problems developed. Replacing a roof in the middle of winter can be challenging. I have had no problems!I can say without a doubt that Bill and his team did an excellent job. Not only did they respond within less than a day for an estimate, but Bill took the time to examine the roof in detail and provide several options. His team then showed up in less than a week and replaced the entire roof. That team was able to complete the work in one day. They never took a break except to eat lunch. I don't believe I ever witnessed a harder working and more skilled group of people. They returned a few days later to replace the gutter and downspouts. I would highly recommend Dominion Roofing. They are a local owned company.Joel

I highly recommend Dominion Roofing. Bill came quickly, thoroughly assessed our problem, and fixed it immediately. There was a rainstorm later that evening, and he texted me to check in and make sure his repair held up - which it did! He was very professional, honest, and explained everything. Highly recommend!

Bill is the man. He came exactly on time and walked me through the whole process. I don't understand roofing and he took pictures, drew me a diagram and explained exactly what was wrong, how the roof should look and what the fix was. If you need a trustworthy person to come look at your roof, I would call Dominion Roofing.

I was extremely impressed with the professionalism and workmanship of Dominion Roofing. They installed our new roof in a timely manner at a fair price and did a great job to boot. Two seemingly small but important things stood out to me. First, during the March windstorm (when gusts reached 70 mph) about 6 feet of the ridge vent on our roof was lifted up, exposing the interior of our house to the elements. With rain in the forecast, I was desperate to find a roofer to repair the vent promptly. Bill Fowler of Dominion responded immediately and fixed the vent within 2 hours of my contacting him. No one else responded until the next day. Even more impressive, instead of charging for his time, Bill simply asked that we consider Dominion when we replaced the roof. Well, we did and we're glad we did! Second, on the morning the roofers came, I asked the crew chief if he could clean the 2 skylights when they finished the roof. The crew worked tirelessly from 7 in the morning until 7 at night. They had worked so hard and done such great work that I didn't have the heart to remind the crew chief about the skylights. It tuned out I didn't need to remind him. The last thing he did before leaving was to clean the skylights. Very impressive!I could not be more pleased or impressed with Dominion Roofing.

I am SO impressed with this company!!! After a bad wind storm, we lost several roofing tiles at our house. Bill came out quickly and did a beautiful repair, even taking the time to exactly matching our old tiles to our new tiles. I HIGHLY recommend this company!!! They do excellent work at a reasonable price!

We used Dominion Roofing to replace our 24 year old roof and couldn't be happier. Bill was very friendly and easy to work with. We had a lot of damage to the plywood underneath and to the wood trim and Bill worked with us every step to explain how they would fix it which made us happy. They fixed all of the wood and wrapped the trim in aluminum. His guys did a great job and even did a awesome job with cleanup. My yard was spotless when they were done. We are very happy with the results and how easy Bill was to work with. I would recommend Bill to anyone who needs a new roof!

We highly recommend Dominion Roofing for all your roof requirements. The professionalism and industry knowledge of Bill Fowler, the Owner, was well beyond our expectations. Bill's personal attention to every detail of the job form start to finish was extremely impressive. Our entire roof was removed and replaced with a high level of care and concern and looks fantastic. The installation crew was courteous and careful and the post-install clean-up was immaculate! We have never had a more attentive contractor in our 39 years of homeownership. Another great job by Dominion Roofing; well done!

I contacted several roofers (some who I had worked with on MULTIPLE projects) to help me with a home renovation/addition and I was not only impressed by Dominion's quick response to my initial inquiry but they were out to the house within 24 hours (it was the weekend!) to inspect the roof AND I received a quote the same day. I was so impressed with their assessment of the roof (other companies wanted to quote off of tax records and google earth images verified by a 2 minute stop at the house) where as Bill at Dominion took the time to go up on the roof and inspect the new and old portion. We are so happy with the roof, the water issues have been resolved, the crew showed up on time, and they could not have been nicer, or more neat with materials and debris etc. They are worth the 5 star review and more!!!

I am delighted with my new roof and grateful to Bill for making the whole process much easier than I'd expected! Bill responded to all of my questions promptly and was particularly patient with my indecision about materials. We were delayed by weather and Bill apologetically kept me informed about the unavoidable changes in the schedule. The crew was spectacularly neat (special thanks for keeping the garden safe!) and worked late hours to complete the project as quickly as possible. I always want to use local businesses whenever I can, and I would recommend Dominion Roofing without hesitation.

We called Dominion Roofing for an emergency siding repair. Bill came out to look at the damage within 24 hours and had a crew at our house the very next day. It wasn't a big job, but he treated us as if it was. We will definitely call Dominion Roofing again if the need arises.

Dominion Roofing recently installed a new roof on our 20-year old home. They were great to work with and kept us up to date on plans and progress. With their help, we chose architectural shingles for the main portion of the roof, and metal panels for some accent sections. They also installed new gutters to improve water flow. They followed up to make sure we were happy with all of the work they performed. We are extremely pleased with our new roof and would recommend Dominion Roofing to others.

We had several estimates from different roofing companies when we decided to replace our 25-year-old roof which includes a lower roof and an upper roof. Between two finalists whose estimated prices were in the same range, we went with Dominion Roofing Company (Kensington, MD).The main reason: Dominion Roofing Co. (DRC) itemized everything that needed to be done, while other companies who submitted proposals did not. DRC guarantees its workmanship for 10 years, provided the premium materials (roof-lining)--not the 15-lb or 30-lb quality, the Certain Teed architectural shingles (30-year warranty), installed drip-edges all around, replaced all flashing, and fixed damaged wood of the roof for free for several spots.None of the other roofing companies are up front in their proposals. Also those companies did not propose premium materials, nor install drip-edges, nor replace old flashing, and offered shorter warranty.So do look at the small print, the details, besides the estimated prices.DRC sent a crew of 6 men for the job. They worked from 7:30 AM to 4 PM and completed the job in a speedy and efficient manner. The afterwork cleanup is commendable.The owner of DRC, Bill Fowler, is approachable, low-keyed, and very accommodating. His gentility left a good impression on us. His crew was professional and helpful when asked on technical issues regarding the work being done.

Benefits of Slate Roofing

Beauty

There are many advantages to installing a slate roof. Chief among these is the beauty this natural material lends to a home. Each tile has a slightly different hue that blends together to give a deep and earthy loveliness to any structure. Slate is particularly well-suited to historic homes.

Duability

Slate is also among the most durable roofing material available. A well-installed slate roof can last up to 100 years. Slate roofs were very popular in the late 19th century and early 20th century. In fact, some of these 100-year-old roofs are still intact!

Savings

Slate roofs are non-combustible and resist water, wind and storm damage. Because of this, some homeowner's insurance companies offer discounts for homes with slate roofs. Such roofs also require little maintenance to keep them looking clean and beautiful for decades.

Slate Roofing Installation

Slate roofing requires different techniques and skills from those needed on asphalt and other types of roofing. Slate shingles are attached to the roof by drilling holes in each shingle and nailing them to the roof supports. Since slate shingles don’t expand or contract with the weather like wooden shingles, they are set closely together, with each layer slightly overlapping the next.

The roofers at Dominion Roofing know that there are unique challenges when installing slate roofing on many roofs. However, we have the experience and skills necessary to navigate any challenge—allowing us to install a beautiful slate roof with the care and precision needed for decades of trouble-free use.
