I purchased a new home that had severe algae growth on the roof and several items (per the inspection) that needed to be repaired before I could close.
was working on the roof when I stopped by the house to check on the status. The gentleman on the roof (although young) was working h****** cleaning off the algae and cleaning years of organic matter out of the gutters. When he stopped for a quick chat, he told me he was the owner's son. He was polite and very helpful with lots of roof information. Additionally, he cut away several tree limbs that were banging into the gutters and hitting the roof. The seller paid to have this service completed, so I don't know how much the final bill was. I just know I am extremely pleased with
and wouldn't hesitate to use them in the future or recommend them to others.

I purchased an Angie's List Big Deal for the roof inspection for $20 to inspect the roof of a home I just purchased. I definitely got my money's worth!
come out and spent quite a bit of time on my roof. He snapped several photos and explained everything to me when he came down. He then followed up (on my request) with an email estimate of what each item would cost to repair. I didn't feel any pressure to use their company for the repairs - but will definitely do so when I can get them scheduled.
will definitely get my future business.

Took pictures while on roof and showed me pictures. We have a few more years on the current roof. They probably could have talked us into a new roof within the next year and they were honest and didn't. They pointed out an area of concern with chimney and we have since followed up with another angie's list provider and had it fixed. Will have them re-inspect roof in 1-2 years. Highly recommend!!

I scheduled the first call and they were able to book something a few days out.
Issue 1: On the day of the service, I received a call that they needed to reschedule. What I was told was that because of the rain and storms from the previous week, they had a backlog of work they needed to get to, since they couldn't complete this work while it was raining. I understand that things come up, but they would have known this well in advance. Instead, they contacted me a few hours before my service/review was scheduled. This shows very little consideration since I had to take off work to be home for this service. When I told the lady this, I received a pathetic apology.
Issue 2: The service was rescheduled for the following Monday. On Monday morning I received another call that they needed to reschedule again. The lady on the phone explained that the individual on their team had needed a surgery that weekend and they would not be available to come out and review my issue. Medical emergencies happen, but again, I was give no notice of this, when they clearly knew this resource was not going to be able to assist me. Given their previous cancellation, one would think that an organization with any sort of customer service would send another resource out to review my leak. I seriously doubt they have one person on their team.
I can understand that unplanned things come up, and it's hard to make everyone happy, but for two incidents to happen within a week, and little effort was done to make the situation better, I have no problem giving this provider a bad review. Maybe next time they will think about their prospects and how their schedules are impacted by their lack of customer service. I will never reach out to this provider again.

So far it looks perfect.
Columbus Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
was a pleasure to talk to. He took the time to discuss my roofing problem in detail over the phone and explore all the options available ( repairing the roof vs replacing ). I felt what he charged was very reasonable, more so than the other contractors that I had talked to.
Columbus Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
was willing to save me money by making repairs and therefore extending the remaining life of the roof, where other contractors were only willing to replace the entire roof. In spite of the reasonable cost I received a quality professional job. I could not be more pleased.

The roof is fine, as are the slates, but to clear downspout, which gutter cleaners won't do bc of the slate roof, they removed it and didn't put it back securely. It's now sitting on my lawn. They also put the detritus in my lower gutters which are now clogged. I called to have them come back and they said they would but it's been over a week.

Columbus Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
was recommended to us by our gutter repair company.
Columbus Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
fixed a large hole in our roof within 48 hours and the work appears do have been done acceptably. While they were at our house they pitched a number of other services, including replacing our roof, building a new deck and fixing the French door at the back of our home, which was damaged during a burglary.
We agreed to order a new door. They talked us into a cheaper door than what we first wanted, which may or may not have been a good idea. We were told the project would take a day or two to complete; the new door was finally fully installed about three months later. There were delays from the manufacturer, incorrect orders by Pantheon,
Columbus Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
appointments and a failure to return calls promptly, multiple site visits, and, finally, disgareements over what was specified in the contract.
Columbus Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
and his family were generally very nice but they were unprofessional and didn't place a priority on getting the work done in a timely, first-rate manner. They told us they'd take care of us and they did not. Worst of all, I am not 100% confident that the door is high quality and is going to work properly for many years. We'll see.
I would not recommend
Columbus Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
-- especially for anything other than roof work.

Fine, at first.
Skylar met with my husband on 6/27/14 and did an initial review the two and a half car garage roof. He was told about the locations of the leaks at that time. He said this would be an easy job for the guys and they worked out a contract with discounts. My first concern was when I saw the 'contract'. All that it should was the material, quantity, and unit footage. There were not material costs or labor.
All went well when the crew showed up until they 'found' the part of the existing wood needed replacing. They hadn't included an estimate of wood replacement or installation, but we figured how much can four long 1" x 12" x 16' boards cost? The rest of the work continued on the other side of the roof, but work for the one section had to stop for about an hour until one of the guys came back with the needed planks. During that day, the crew started rushing because it looked like inclement weather. When they finally finished, the sun came back out. They were good about the clean up and haul away of the old materials.
A couple of days , Skylar came back and presented my husband with a new adjusted contract that added on an additional $240. There were no copies of receipts provided or a breakdown of the cost of the material or labor on this one either. There was not enough material or labor used to add an additional $240.00. My husband questioned how much the wood and additional labor ended up costing and Skylar couldn't (or wouldn't) tell him how it came to be $240.00.
This is not the experience I would have expected from an Angie's List provider!
This was only the garage roof we had done, but next year we're looking to have the main house roof replaced, but after this, we will contact other roofing companies for estimates and much more detailed contracts.

Following a meeting in early October, 2012 with
Columbus Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
, President of B&T Roofing in Westerville. I signed a contract on 10/18/12 to have them replace a roof (approx. 16 Squares) on a rental property which included a $2,000 deposit (approx. 1/3 of
estimate). The work was performed on 11/9/12 at which time I was summoned to the house to inspect/approve the replacement of a number of plywood decking sheets found to be in marginal or poor condition. I told the foreman to use his
judgment and replace any sheets he felt were necessary which I believe resulted in what they said was 15 sheets
(7/16” x 48” x 96”).
I did a visual inspection of the completed work 4 days later and was extremely disappointed to see an unsightly degree of waviness and undulation with the shingles and the slope line of the roof. I contacted Mr.
Columbus Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
to express my dissatisfaction and concern and we met at the property on 12/5/12. He agreed with my assessment and concurred that the roof didn’t look right and said he would initiate a claim with the shingle manufacturer,
Columbus Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
(OC), which on a phone call to me on 1/30/13 he confirmed was submitted. It was also during that 12/5/12 meeting when I pointed out to Mr.
Columbus Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
that the installation crew had not replaced the gutter guards they removed during the job, an issue which took 18 months to finally get addressed.
After receiving a letter from OC dated 2/27/13 stating they would review the claim after the shingles were exposed to warmer weather, I received a call from
Columbus Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
, an OC Product Technical Specialist to inspect the roof which we did together on 5/21/13. Right away, he agreed that the roof did not look as flat and uniform as it should, but did not agree it was related to a shingle manufacturing defect. He suspected it could have something to do with faulty installation and/or attic ventilation (B&T installed ridge vents which the specialist questioned whether it was a proper choice based on his inspection of the attic and exiting venting). He advised me that he would contact B&T of his findings and I would hear back from them.
In mid-October, almost a year after the initial installation, a follow-up inspection was arranged for 10/21/13 (with Mr.
Columbus Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
showing up over 30 minutes late). Although the shingles appeared to be laying a bit flatter, I once again expressed that the undulation and non-uniformity of the roof under layment was unacceptable (referencing examples of neighboring houses despite many with much older roofs). In fact, when he got up on the roof to do an inspection, I observed and pointed out to him various spots that sagged from his own weight while he kept insisting that there wasn’t any issue with respect to substandard
appearance, workmanship or materials. As I left, I told him to finish his evaluation and let me know his findings.
Over another month passed by until we spoke on 12/3/13 when I told Mr.
Columbus Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
that I did not want to address any remedies until the spring’s warmer weather and that he would receive no payment from me for the balance due until the roof was brought up to industry-accepted standards for aesthetics and workmanship. That was when he told me he intended to initiate a
Columbus Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
on my property, which he filed with the
Columbus Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
County courthouse on 12/4/2013. This represented the breaking point for me in terms of frustration and exasperation with Mr.
Columbus Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
and B&T Roofing.
It is quite revealing at this point to introduce two significant issues relating to Mr.
Columbus Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
’s failure to be consistent in his assessments as to the validity of my dissatisfaction nor his desire to reach some kind of good-faith settlement with me.
First, if Mr.
Columbus Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
felt I was being unreasonable or that my objections had no basis, why did he agree to file a shingle warranty claim with OC in the first place? Why did it take him five months after the inspection by OC’s Mr.
Columbus Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
to follow up with me for a roof evaluation? And why is it that I have never received an invoice from B&T itemizing the extent of the work performed and balance due? A logical conclusion could be drawn that there was a question in Mr.
Columbus Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
’s mind from the November, 2012 completion of the roof replacement until the final inspection in October, 2013 that my level of dissatisfaction had some degree of merit.
Second, the Ohio Revised Code is very specific about the procedural process needed to file a legally valid and enforceable mechanics’
Columbus Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
in the state. Two of those issues which Mr.
Columbus Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
has tried to manipulate/ignore include the following:
1. The statute states that the claimant has 60-75 days from the last day materials or labor was provided to file, depending on whether the work was performed on a residential or commercial property. In filing his
Columbus Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
affidavit with the court, Mr.
Columbus Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
declared the last day that materials or labor was provided was on 10/21/2013, which was the date the two of us met at the property to inspect the roof together (nearly a year after the work was completed). By citing that date in his formal claim, Mr.
Columbus Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
is trying to declare that a
Columbus Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
roof inspection satisfied the condition that material/labor was provided on that date. Although I left the home with Mr.
Columbus Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
on the roof finishing his inspection, I did not authorize any work to be performed on the house other than a visual evaluation.
2. The statute also requires that the claimant serve written notice on the property owner within 30 days after the filing with the local county recorder’s office (standard procedure is through certified mail or similar document delivery service where the
recipient’s signature is required). If such a delivery attempt is unsuccessful, a copy of the
Columbus Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
must be posted conspicuously on the project site within 10 days of failure of service. Mr.
Columbus Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
never sent me such a letter and I never received or signed for one. And the tenants at the related property have confirmed the absence of any
Columbus Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
posting at said premises. According to the statute, failure to properly serve the
Columbus Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
is considered grounds for invalidation.
In March of 2014, I contacted a structural engineer to inspect the roof both from the exterior and from the attic. Although he agreed that the shingles appeared to be solidly sealed and not lacking in integrity or performance, he did bring up several issues that should have been addressed during the tear-off, under layment replacement and new shingle installation.
1. There is insufficient space between many of the replaced underlayment plywood panels to allow for proper expansion and contraction due to temperature fluctuations (i.e. many sheets are butted
Columbus Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
-to-
Columbus Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
). Although the engineer admitted it
was not a violation of any code, he did indicate that incorporating
Columbus Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
gaps was standard practice with most experienced and reputable roofing contractors. He also commented that a high quality job would have included the installation of “H-clip” separators between the panels for proper and uniform spacing.
2. Part of the contract with B&T included the installation of a bathroom vent stack in the roof and ducting connection to the fan exhaust. During the attic inspection, the engineer noticed that the duct had become disconnected from the roof vent because of a short-cut used during the installation. Specifically, the connection was made with duct tape in
Columbus Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
of a much more durable and appropriate metal clamp.
3. Both the engineer and Mr.
Columbus Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
made statements to me about what they considered to be inadequate ventilation in the attic. Although Mr.
Columbus Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
and I agreed to the installation of two ridge vents, the crew failed to seal off the gable vents to allow for the proper air flow and circulation needed for a “healthy” attic and maximum roof life.
Several months ago, Mr.
Columbus Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
contacted me and we met at the property on June 9th, 2014 to try to come up with a resolution on the issues described above. Mr.
Columbus Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
finally arranged to have most of the items addressed/corrected and agreed to withdraw the
Columbus Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
upon receiving payment of the balance due (a check was sent and cashed the middle of June). Nearly a month has gone by since then and according to the
Columbus Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
County Recorder’s Office website, the $4,525 mechanic’s
Columbus Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
has yet to be released despite payment in full (less a valid Angie’s List coupon).
Based on my entire unpleasant and and exasperating experience with B&T Roofing and the president of the company, I would not use this roofing contractor again and strongly recommend that people in need of roofing work use anyone other than B&T
Roofing.

Columbus Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
called from
Columbus Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
to take a look at our roof. We had a few leaks and wanted an honest opinion of our options. I do not think I got an honest opinion from
Columbus Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
and therefore would not recommend this company to anyone. Here is why:
Columbus Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
said my roof was about to cave in and need immediate attention. A complete roof replacement. He also said that he did not get up on the second story roof because "there was too much moss and stuff" He said that if I hadn't showed him where the leak was he might have fallen through the roof it was so bad. He was trying to scare me into buying right then in there! He said the roof shingles were baked and were cracked. He said the entire surface of the roof was spongy and that was why he wanted us to replace the roof. He would not even give me an estimate on a repair, only a complete roof.
I do not believe a word he said because he was one of three contractors I had look at my roof.
My story is as follows.
Roofing contractor 1: Said I have about 5 years left and the repairs to fix the leak shouldn't be hard at all! Will give me a quote, in the mail soon. This guy was very kind and explained why the shingles were cracking. They were cracking because the only thing that was cracking was the "painted" (not what he called it, but close) surface, not the shingle itself. He said he would include a brochure on what he was taking about to better understand the shingles I have on the roof now. He said they are getting old, but still have some life in them. Said that we would need to replace some wood, because of warpage, when we get the roof replaced, but it is not needed at this time. He had no problem getting to the second story roof of our home.
Columbus Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
: Said above.. The roof is in horrible shape and I need to get a roof NOW! Said he didn't want to get to the second story roof because of the moss and mold on the first story roof. Look at my comments above for more info.
Roofing contractor 3: Said we need to get a few repairs done and we have about 2 or so years left on the roof. They would repair the few leaks and recommend an inspection next year.
Based on the opinions of the other roofing companies I will not use this company for service. I must say the inspector named
Columbus Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
should be closely monitored as he is providing false information to his prospective customers.
