Family Owned

While there is no shortage of roofers in North Texas, husband and wife, Ricky and Shelby Bell saw a need that could be filled with solid business practice to back it up. Ricky’s schedule as a fireman allows him the time to own his own business and Shelby’s background in real estate and customer service showed her how uncommon it was to find a contractor with good processes to make the process simple. They live in Cooke County with their 2 (almost 3) kids and enjoy serving their neighbors around North Texas with the best service possible.

FAQ

Frequently asked questions and answers about our company

Ricky and Shelby started Red Ladder Roofing in early 2016 after simultaneously seeing an opportunity in construction and a need for contractors with good business skills and communication abilities.  

For those of you in North Texas, we are a local roofing company. Our office is located in South Denton but we service all of North Texas. 

We are BBB A+ accredited, GAF certified installers, CertainTeed Shingle Masters, and members of both the RCAT and NTCRA.

Both the company and our subs are appropriately insured. 

There is currently no license for roofers in the state of Texas, although we support the need for that and will be ready to join in if Texas develops one. Our business is a registered LLC however, as well as registered contractors with all applicable cities. 

On most jobs we are able to offer a 5 year labor warranty as laid out in our contract. Our products also carry warranties from the manufacturer; most product warranties are transferable. 

A project manager is on every job to oversee the project, check supplies, answer your questions, and manage the crew. We don’t just send the crew, we’re there making sure everything is done correctly and you are informed. 

During all jobs we make an effort to tarp flower beds and sensitive areas, protect pools in close proximity, and cover AC units. Our priority is getting your house dried in, after that we make several sweeps to pick up trash and use a magnetic roller to collect nails. 

A typical residential reroof takes us 1-2 days.
