Your Home’s Unsung Hero

December 18, 2020

One of the most important and yet underappreciated aspects of your home is your roof. It helps to keep your family safe from the elements, to keep your structure secure and, properly maintained, it can last for a long time. It is the unsung hero in the world of home improvement. But when it does come time to repair or replace your home’s roofing, how do you pick the best company to help “straighten that hero’s cape” as it were?

In short, what makes a good roofer?

Roofing is hard work that requires extensive experience, a keen eye for detail and safety and the fortitude to get work done, regardless of summer heat or winter snow. Open and honest communication, exceptional customer service, along with happy customers, are also key details to review when you are looking for a top-of-the-line roofing company.


Dick’s Roof Repair has been providing our valued customers in Kenosha and Racine with top quality workmanship and reliability since 1957. Our team is dedicated to the same family values, professionalism, and roofing philosophy that Dick Milkie opened the company with years ago. These business principles are the cornerstone of Dick’s Roof Repair Service and have helped us become a leader in the roofing industry in southeastern Wisconsin. Practically everywhere you look in Kenosha and Racine are roofs that Dick’s has either repaired, replaced or installed. That 60+ year history of trust keeps customers coming back.

“Dicks Roofing has been around forever….. and there is a reason.  Great Service, Excellent Ethics and Quality Work!” – Christine Matkus, Dick’s Roof Repair customer.

Safety and eye for detail:

Our team prides itself on our ability to keep our customers safe, especially during the uncertainty of 2020. We work closely with our customers, operate under the adage of “measure twice and cut once” and keep our home owners informed of each step.

“Just met with Jeff, the president of the company. He came through, measured and was very clear with what to expect if we would choose to go with his company re:window and door installations. Company follows covid guidelines, which was greatly appreciated. Will definitely recommend this company to others who are in need of roofs, windows and doors.” Nicholas Raabe, Dick’s Roof Repair customer.

Within today’s guidelines of social distancing, our team is ready to safely communicate with you in so many ways:

  • Call us! We would love to hear from you and schedule your home for an appraisal (all from a safe distance of course).
  • Online quotes! Our online quote system is easy to use and available 24/7 on our website for your convenience.
  • Discovery calls! Do you have questions and need answers? We can set up a call with you to discuss your options.
  • Video chats! Sometimes putting a face to a name is important, or perhaps you want to give us a virtual tour of your home and the issue you want to discuss. 


Beyond quality and experience of workmanship, another key characteristic of a good roofer is their ability to complete projects on-time and on-budget. We work closely with homeowners to make sure all of their questions and concerns are addressed. Discussing details of the roofing or siding project up front can help clear up any potential issues, questions or concerns.

“This is a good company. They did a great job. Our bill was exactly as was quoted plus the repairs that needed to be done. And it was done on time.” Kathy Hawley, Dick’s Roof Repair customer.

“From the estimate to the job being completed Jeff and his crew were FANTASTIC to deal with. Great local company that anyone would be FOOLISH not to call.” – Joseph LaScola, Dick’s Roof Repair customer.

Our relationship with our customers is extremely important. We know that undertaking home improvement projects — such as having a new roof installed or your home resided — are major decisions, and we understand the impact it has on your family. It is our goal to make that process as easy as possible. We offer FREE quote options, and we are available to visit your home to review the details of your project.

Dick’s Roof Repair also provides a 10-year workmanship warranty that includes any leaks or material that should blow off due to the installation of the roof. Not to mention, you are receiving the warranty that the product we are installing offers as well. You can rest assured that the investment you made to update your home is well protected.

“We just had our roof replaced and aluminum fascia, soffits, and gutters installed by Dick’s Roof Repair Service. The workmanship is sharp and the house looks great. The cost was very fair and the final bill was true to the original estimate, no add-ons! My wife and I try to hire local contractors whenever possible and we were very happy we did for this job. There’s a reason you see these red trucks all over town – they do excellent work!”  – Robert Ewald,  Dick’s Roof Repair customer.

“They were prompt in providing a quote, they were there on my first preferred date, the work was done quickly and professionally and they came in under the estimate. This was an outstanding experience. Thank you!” John Cooper, Dick’s Roof Repair customer.
