The Data & Research: Why You Should Trust Us
HOMR handled 49 residential roofing projects for our members in the last year. Roofing services provided in these projects included new roof installation, roof repair, full roof replacement, solar panel installation, gutter installation, and routine maintenance service calls.
We used member data and feedback from these roofing service calls to choose our 5 Dallas Fort Worth area roofing categories. We combined that information with Dallas residential roofing contractor data points to select our winners.
DFW homeowners face some of the most challenging weather conditions in the country — factors like hail and extreme heat can shorten the lifespan of roofing materials.
“A 30-year shingle isn’t a 30-year shingle in Dallas,” Travis Jones from Smart Roof and Home Performance told us. “We have extremely harsh weather conditions. Brutal heat, bitter cold, torrential rains, hail and high winds. Whatever you can throw at a roof, DFW does it.”
Dallas area residents have 3 key roofing concerns to contend with throughout the year. HOMR looked at each roofing company’s ability to address the following concerns:
Roof Damage from Debris and Hail. Dallas roofs and gutter systems sustain damage from live oak and crape myrtle debris, especially after heavy rainstorms. Texas also experiences over 500 hail events per year — these hailstorms cause dents and dings to your gutter system, rip up asphalt shingles, and dent metal roofs.
Roof Damage from Extreme Heat. North Texas recently experienced 72 straight days of over 100° heat. Prolonged heat exposure can melt your asphalt shingles and cause metal roofs to warp.
Foundation Damage from Rainwater. Dallas gets 39” of rain per year. On a 1,000 square foot roof, that’s over 23,400 gallons of water. DFW homes need quality roof and gutter systems to properly guide all that water away from their foundations.
We decided our Dallas-Fort Worth roofing award winners had to provide expert solutions to these roofing issues.
So how did HOMR use its residential roofing experience, service data and feedback, and Dallas’ homeowners most pressing needs to select the top 5 DFW roofers in our award categories? Let’s explain our decision-making process.
Dallas roof replacement costs 15-25% more than the national average. Learn all about the true cost of replacing your roof in Dallas in our updated cost guide.
How We Selected the Top 5 DFW Roofers
It wasn't an easy choice. The U.S. Census Bureau reports over 4,300 roofing contractors in the Dallas Fort Worth area.
We started our selection process by checking for current licensing and insurance information for every Dallas area roofing and gutter company. We eliminated any contractor who did not have an updated license or insurance.
We then eliminated any provider who had an outstanding complaint levied against them with Dallas City Hall in the last 2 years.
We strongly preferred local roofing companies with a wealth of Dallas area experience. We selected contractors who live and work in the Dallas area — living here gives a roofer personal experience with what DFW homeowners actually need from their contractors.
As part of this section, we also gave preference to DFW roofers and gutter pros that offer warranties on both their materials and their workmanship. HOMR likes contractors who stand by their work long after the job is completed.
From here, we became highly specific with our selection process. For example, there are several exceptional commercial roofing companies in Dallas, but our focus is on residential roofing services. We chose to focus on roofers who specialize in residential projects.
We looked for service providers with outstanding service records in our 5 specified categories:
Overall Residential Roofing: We looked for the roofing contractor that provides the most well-rounded roof system for total home protection at a price point that meets current industry standards.
Roof Repair and Maintenance: The average Dallas roof replacement costs between $8,000 - $15,000. Make sure that money is well spent on the right contractor.
New Roof Installation: A professionally installed roof protects your home from Texas hail storms, extreme heat, and falling debris from live oak and myrtle trees.
Gutter Repair and Installation: A quality gutter system is an important piece of your roof structure, diverting rainwater off your roof and away from your foundation
Solar Roofing: Texas ranks 2nd nationally for solar installations (SEIA). Solar roofing systems are a part of Dallas’ energy future, so they’re a vital part of our roofing awards.
It took a great deal of time and research, but we narrowed down 4,300 DFW roofing companies to our 5 award-winning DFW roofers, gutter contractors and solar providers.

Specialty Service:Solar Panel Expert Estimates.
The key factor that set Smart Roof HP apart as the best Dallas solar expert is Travis’ ability to Dallas residents when solarisn’t right for their homes. HOMR likes that Smart Roof HP won’t install a solar system on a home unless the owner stands to actually save money over time.
