There are a ton of roofing companies that serve the Triangle area, and as a result, it can get pretty convoluted when you’re trying to find the right one for your roofing project.
A quick Google search turns up plenty of results, but sometimes that even confuses things further, as it may only show roofing companies located in your city, excluding some great ones that do serve your area.
So in order to help you narrow down your search, and give you a solid place to start, we’ve been writing about the best companies that we know to serve homeowners across the various cities and towns in the Triangle.
In this blog, we’re going to be going over:
A quick disclaimer before we get started: We don’t have personal interaction with any of these companies, and they are not ranked in any particular order on this list. The information we’ve gathered here is based on the reviews the company has received, as well as facts listed on their website.
Also, if you’re finding yourself thinking: “Why is this roofing company, that also seems to work in Fuquay, publicizing its competition?”
Our mission at On Tops is to become a trusted source of roofing information for homeowners in our area, and our hope is that by sharing our expertise and knowledge with you, you’ll feel like you know us before you even speak with us about your roofing projects. A big part of that is helping you understand what the different companies in the area are, and what they specialize in, so we wanted to create a list of local roofing companies that isn’t paid for, like some of the more popular rankings and review sites out there.
Alright, with that being said, here are the best roofing companies in Fuquay-Varina!

Received Storm Damage in Fuquay?
Now that you know some of the companies you can reach out to, how do you know if you actually have a good reason to call someone out?
There are actually a few common signs of storm damage, that you may be able to look for even without getting on top of your roof!
Wind may not be what you think of as directly damaging to your roof and home, but strong, straight-line winds might have a heyday with an older roof that’s taken some wear, or some previous damage.
Seeing that your home has received storm damage can be difficult if it occurs in less visible parts of your roof. Wind can blow up under shingles, bending them, and potentially blowing them up and off your roof if the wind is strong enough. One of the main things preventing shingles from being blown off is the asphalt sealant applied to the underside of the shingle. It attaches the shingles to the surface below it, but that wears down over time, opening up the roof to receiving damage.
If you have a row of shingles missing, that’s usually a pretty good indicator that you received some very strong and driven wind. Even if the wind wasn’t strong enough to take them off cleanly, you may be able to notice creases where the wind was bending the shingles up. Those areas in both cases will be much weaker, and more susceptible to further damage during the next storm.
Three-tab shingles typically face more wind damage than higher quality designer shingles. Architectural and luxury shingles are much heavier than three-tabs, so they are less likely to be lifted from the roof.
Another thing to watch out for with wind, is the potential for debris to be blown onto the roof, and puncture the shingles and other roofing materials.
If you’re able to see the sections on your roof where it happened, hail is pretty easy to see, and It’s hard to mistake it for anything else. When hail falls on your roof, you’ll be able to notice the dents that it leaves on softer metal parts of your roof, like vents or flashing, and even on your shingles themselves.
Hail can even cause shingles to crack and break off if they have already received some wear, a result that will greatly increase the likelihood of damage occurring. If you see some dents or cracks in your shingles, you’ll want to get it taken care of pretty quickly, as those small damages can grow much larger with time. If your see that your vents have taken hail damage, they should be replaced as well, as they won’t be able to function the way they are supposed to with that damage.
Water damage really starts to become an issue when your roof has already been damaged by wind, hail, or some other debris. Once one of those other things exposes part of the roof, and rain comes, it will find its way into the roof decking, and damage the structure of your roof.
If you notice a patch of wood in your attic that is darker than others, or has started to rot, that’s a sign that water has been eating through the wood and weakening it. Sometimes a roof leak will also work its way down to your ceiling, staining the plaster.
That’s when water damage is the most problematic. Roofing materials are quite heavy, and as water rots the decking underneath it, the integrity of the roof will be compromised. The longer something like that sits, the more you increase the risk of your roof collapsing, especially during weather events like heavy rain or snow.
