Roof Cleaning Reviews in Chicago


I had a new roof put on 10 years ago and when J & B Perfect was working on rebuilding the chimneys and firewalls, they noticed some cracks in the aluminum coating which should probably last only 5 years. They put a new aluminum coating on my roof and then cleaned out the gutters as well.

The firm was very responsive and booked an appointment quickly with me. The specialist they sent out was very professional and on time. I felt he had a good understanding of what our issues were and did a pretty good job of explaining what our options were.

I received the quote and it was almost $10,000, which was higher than I expected, however, I hadn't gotten any other quotes yet so didn't have anything to compare it to. One of the decisions that had to be made was what color (or clear) I wanted the shake stained after it was cleaned. I hadn't considered this so I asked for addresses of homes in my area they did work on that would show me examples of what the different colors looked like in "real life." The woman I spoke to got back to me and she told me they couldn't give out any addresses of former customers for "confidentiality reasons."
? How does one look at their work/check references with other customers without having the addresses? I thought this was odd.

As summer progressed, we sort of postponed this project because it looked like it was going to be more expensive than we thought, but I didn't let
know one way or the other. A few weeks later, I got a quote from another company (Pro Woodcare, Inc--see my review of their work separately). Their rep was extremely knowledgable, professional....and their quote came in under $6000. Wow-what a difference for the same service/products/guarantees, etc. We went with Pro Woodcare and were delighted.

A week or so later, we received a letter from
----they now offered to do the job for around $7000. I'll say it again: Wow...what a difference! How could the price just drop by such a huge amount in a matter of weeks? Yes, I know the economy is bad and so many firms are willing to negotiate their price, but this was such a huge drop that it demonstrates that their initial bid was significantly inflated. We live in an area of very expensive homes, and know that trades often throw high bids out hoping they might stick. This just left a really bad taste in my mouth.

I called this company on a Monday, the estimator was out the next day. I had a Proposal on the same day emailed to me and we signed on a Wednesday. The whole Job was Completed in less then Three days from the first call. This company is simply the most proffesional and dependable company i have ever delt with. The Job site was left perfectly clean when they were finished. The supervisor stopped by the next day to inspect the work of his crew and asked if i had any questions about anything. The invoice arrived via email about 4 days later and i happily paid it. I recieved a call about a week later from the supervisor just following up and wondering if i had any questions. It was a pleasure to work with this Group. I have since hired them to Pressure wash our pool deck and roof and had them seal coat our drive way. My sister hired them in August of 2009 to do a tree removal of a very large cotton Wood that 5 other tree services didnt want to work on, the job went great, My sister is more then happy> i just signed a new contract for them to install a new concrete floor at our car wash.

They provided a written estimate and came during a pre-scheduled appointment time. They told us that there were two downspouts that were clogged with debris and another roofing co. would have to come take care of that because the downspouts had to be removed from the building using scaffolding, which they are not insured for (if I remember correctly). They cleaned everything else up and only charged us a site visit fee. They were pleasant to work with, always returned phone calls and we would use them again.

While the information was disappointing, I was very impressed with the honesty and advice to look elsewhere. I did find another company to do the work, was given a 10 business day time-frame, which they were able to keep.

I would not use the service again because of JOB PERFORMANCE. Debris from the was roof left, the ground and patio required cleanup by me, and no water was used to clean gutters. Fortunately, it rained very hard the following day. As info., up until last year, I throroughly cleaned ALL the gutters on the property. They were too casual about contact intervals between the need to change the starting time and starting, e.g. an employee injured on another job & the ASSUMED delay caused by anticipated rain. They called the residence too early. They called the customer by 1st name. They appeared upset to know that Angie's List maintained some record of payment in relation to the work requested. (Min. quote $175 for 2006; Approx. quote 2005 $140) The workers on site were very courteous & friendly. The Office & Field Personnel were friendly but not customer-oriented, e.g. demeanor gave no reason for customer to feel her business was VALUED.

Originally I called them out before buying the "big deal" on Angie's, because I wanted to discuss specifics before they went too far. They were apologetic but could not begin work before I had made payment, which is understandable and a mistake on my part.

and coworker were very polite even though I had essentially cost them a trip out for nothing. They even setup their ladder to help me remove some cable wires I was working on, and caulked the holes for me without my even asking.
It took some time to reschedule once I made payment because there was a mixup with my contact number. This is why I gave a "B" for punctuality, but honestly t is their busy season and the owner was extremely considerate about the mixup. I only had to wait 3 weeks before they could come back out, and as descibed above their work was far more than I'd expect for a general maintenance coupon. Everything about this company was professional and they take their work very seriously. Unlike other contractors they stand by their work and understand the best way to earn business is to do the job the right way and treat customers with courtesy and respect. I am very happy I hired
