While other companies employ commissioned salespeople without any construction knowledge, every person on the Ridout sales staff is salaried and an experienced roofer first. You’ll never feel pressured into making a decision, but you will be advised about any potential roofing problems before they arise.
In order to attract and retain “career professionals” rather than temporary, non-union laborers, Ridout has offered medical, vacation, and retirement benefits to all of our union roofers since 1936. They not only do a better job, but they stay longer, work harder, and deliver a superior product to our customers.

A roof that more than just looks great and protects your home or building from rain and wind. This also helps you keep your house cooler and save energy.
A gutter does more than just move water. It protects your most precious investment: your home.
Each continuous rain gutter system is custom-made to the exact specifications of each house. The contractor measures, manufactures and installs each piece of the gutter system on-site. The gutter, end caps, miters, and screws are all color matched to give your system a completely finished appearance.
Solar tubes, also known as light tubes, sun tunnels, and tubular skylights, consist of a polycarbonate or acrylic dome which are also placed in the roof of your home. The similarity ends there, as the dome works to capture sunlight, reflect it down a sheet metal tube into the attic, shining it through a diffusing lens in the room’s ceiling. We carry 10- & 14-inch sun tunnels.
Solar tube installation is simpler than that of a skylight. Generally, a solar tube can be installed in approximately two hours. Due to the ease of installation, solar tubes cost nearly half of that of a skylight.
Skylights are more complex to install, often requiring professional carpentry skills to get the job done correctly. Because rafters must be cut for installation, surrounding rafters must be reinforced. Given the added labor to install a skylight, it is more costly than a solar tube.
A skylight is a great choice for getting natural sunlight and adding ambiance to an interior room in your home. A solar tube is an excellent approach for getting natural sunlight into your home in an energy-efficient way.
Most experts recommend cleaning them out twice a year, once in late spring and again in early fall. Clogged gutters make it easy for water to seep under the structure of your roof, creating more than just a few water stains. It can also result in the gutters detaching from wall causing damage.
