We are certified by the manufacturers whose products we install

Roofing manufacturers take steps to ensure that their products are correctly and professionally. They will not honor a warranty on a roof installation by a company that has not been factory trained.

  • CertainTeed ShingleMaster
  • GAF Master Elite Roofing Contractor
  • Mulehide Roofing Products
  • Springfield Seamless Gutter Expert
  • Velux Skylights Certified

Blackhawk Roofing is licensed and insured

If you hire a Central Illinois roofer without a state contractor license or insurance coverage, or whose coverage is inadequate or has lapsed, you are setting yourself up for trouble. If an accident occurs on your property, or a worker is injured, you may be held liable. Many homeowner insurance policies and commercial property insurance policies do not cover such damage or injury. You could end up paying expensive damages out of pocket and might even face legal action.

Avoid these problems by insisting that the Central Illinois roofing contractor you hire provides proof of their current insurance coverage. Blackhawk Roofing carries liability coverage up to $1 million per job, as well as full workers' compensation coverage.
