Chaffee Roofing knows New England: We are a third-generation, family-owned roofing company that has installed over 30 million square feet of roofing for prolific companies and start-ups.

Why should this information matter to you, as you set out to find the right roofing contractor for your business?

Let us share 3 compelling reasons that you should consider an established roofer that has left a long line of satisfied customers in its wake.

  1. Chaffee Roofing removes the drama from roof installation

Principia, the prolific consulting firm, published a report titled Commercial Roofing 2016, pointing out that as the demand for commercial roofing has increased in recent years, so has consumer demand for better service – before, during, and after installation.

But as consumers look for roofing companies who will work with them as true partners in improving their commercial real estate, they are finding that roofers are not uniformly up to this task. The Better Business Bureau received more complaints about roofers and utility contractors, in 2016, than any other type of businesses. Ouch.

Chaffee Roofing does not deal in surprises and drama. We know that you have better things to do than micro-manage your roofing contractor.

  1. You will hardly know that we are there

Well, this is a (slight) exaggeration. Let us just say that as we install your roof, we make every decision through your eyes, considering its potential impact on the operation of your business. We think about:

  • how noise levels can impact your customers and employees
  • the solid relationships that you’ve built with your neighbors, and how you want to keep them that way
  • the visual impact of our workspace
  • being friendly and helpful to all human beings we interact with at your place of business
  • how our daily schedule affects your daily schedule


  • how clear communication throughout the installation of your roof removes the element of surprise.
  1. We tell it like it is

Installing a commercial roof is a complicated process that experienced roofers make look easy – but the fact remains that there are many factors to consider when installing a roof.

Perhaps you are working within the confines of a tight budget and are looking to keep costs low?  A quote that puts a beaming grin on your face, as it is far lower than you’d ever imagined, is a wonderful thing – for a moment or two. But as reality sets in, you will realize that a worthy roofing contractor may cost more, but you will be left with the roof you need. As the old saying goes, “The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of a low price is forgotten”.

  1. Installation is a beginning, not an end

As our climate changes, bringing rain that falls harder, and more often; snow that accumulates in higher amounts; and summer temperatures that soar higher than before, you need to show your commercial roof some tender, loving care.

A roofer that is worthy of your business will offer you an after-care program for your new roof and will use new-fashioned technical equipment, like Chaffee’s infrared tools that analyze moisture within insulation, to fix problems before they become complex, and threaten the integrity of your roof.

Chaffee has been in the roofing business since 1908. We’ve learned a few things, and we’re happy to share.
