"Bought the $89 roof inspection Angie's List deal, figuring it would cover the small repair we think we might need as well as the inspection. He called to tell" me my roof was too steep so would incur a surcharge for the inspection. I agreed, thinking I would get something out of it. He also said I didn't need to be home - that they would do it whenever and send me pictures afterwards. I thought this was rather odd, as I figured I would need to be there to authorize anything they do (not to mention see proof of insurance before they climb on my roof!) and also wanted to be there to point out the area we think might be leaking. But since I had paid for it... I had originally emailed dates I would be available in June, as my schedule was really full for April and May, but when he said we didn't have to be there I kind of expected he would ignore that and come out sooner. But then the dates in June I had mentioned came and went and no inspection, so I got on here to contact him about it, initially asking when they were actually going to come out. Before he could respond I saw some of the other negative reviews, and figured I would cancel rather than paying EVEN more to them for what I am expecting would be nothing. That's the last Angie's List deal I ever do.

Angie's Answers

Wow, i aum surprised you didn't get 10 answers already with roofers say X was the best or N was the best or A was the best. In reality you are focusing on the WRONG THING!

5 estimates? Why 5? Why would you do that to yourself? Normally if you are dealing with reputable companies you don't need more than 2 estimates. I advocate to people to always get at least two estimates and if the roofers are saying something very different or if the roofers are way way way off in price, get an equalizer, get a 3rd.  Obviously if you don't trust a roofer disqualify that roofer immediately.  I beliee you have now fallen into "Analysis Paralysis" which is what happens when you have too many opions.

But back to the topic, I said you are focusing on the wrong thing. Why did I say that? Because you can take the best shingle in the world and if installed wrong is compeltely garbage. i can take the worst shingle, known to fail, and if installed properly will last some ammount of time. So you should focus on the roofer, not the product. The roofer is more important and a good quality roofer will only want to install good quality product.

The roof is a system comprised of many components, not just the shingles. You have the water proofing underlayment such as ice shield, the water resistant underlayments such as felt. You have the shingles, the ventilation and the flashing details. All of these things add up to equal one roof. Neglect one and your roof is doomed to fail.

But the roof is more than just product it is detail, know how and heart. Heart? yes heart. It takes the utmost CARING the utmost DESIRE to want to install a good roof. It's hard work and easy to fall into the train of thought as to do what's easier, instead of what's faster.  Faster and easier seldom ever equals better. At the end of the day you ened a roofer that cares about your roof.

So what product is best? That's hard to say. Each manufacturer has multiple plants and it seems each plant puts out varying levels of quality. I will tell you in my area Atlast is known as a cheap commodity shingle. I have Tamko Heritage on my house but I stopped using it because I was having seal failue issues and at the time they offered no contractor certification program, but I hear they started up one. Ownes corning is a decent product backed by a great company. I don't install very many OC's though. I primarily install CertainTeed Landmark shingles and my feeling is that they are the best on the market in my area. I'm sure others will disagree with me.

But don't miss the point, the roofer is more important than the shingle.

I appreciate the fact that with homeowners like you who want to beat the insurance co out of deductibles, so then my rates and every other homeowners rates can also go up just to save you.....Thanks for NOTHING..[8o|]

Any roofer worth using should be able to do the roof with NO MONEY DOWN.

 

The only scenario I would ask for a deposit is on a crazy odd ball shingle that had to be special ordered.

?
The question was, Can it be done? The answer is yes. The real question is "Should" it be done? The answer is, no, not unless it is an emergency.   But also let's clarify winter, because we are having a pretty mild winter, so there's kinda not a problem this year so far. I'll refrence "below freezing" from this point forward.

As a certified and licensed roofing contractor, my reputation is on the line. I debate this topic quite often with other roofing contractors who seem to care more about profit than a job well done.  Well, I can tell you from past experience having been a professional roofer for 14 years as of the time of this posting, that the chance for failure increases exponentionally when installed below freezing.  It's better just not to risk it.

Personally I will not, unless absolutely necessary and the customer signs a disclaimer of limited liability, install a roof below freezing and really really want to install the roof at 40 or above. The shingles need to seal, and will not seal unless they warm to about 70 degrees F ambient temprature. This does not mean it needs to be 70 outside, because the shingles will warm from the sun.  

So what can be done to install the roof below freezing? Well first, the roof should not be gun nailed below freezing. This is because the shingles become brittle and it's easier to "blow through" with your nails. It's also harder to regulate air pressure when it is cold, I speculate because of barometric pressures, but I am just guessing.  Therefore the roof should be hand nailed. This takes more time. Furthermore since the seal strips will not seal, they must be manually sealed with proper compatible adhesives. This will also take more time, and more material. I once spoke with a roofer in Alaska who builds tents around the houses he is working on and covers them with tarps and heats with propane heaters.  Now that takes real time!    The question is, are you prepared to pay for this extra time? Can you wait a few more weeks?

We were buying a home and the sellers agreed to replace the roof. Jarrid at

spent hours on the phone with me, explaining every step of the process. He suggested upgrades in some aspects of the roofing and let me know other parts where upgrades were not warranted. We had to have the roof done by closing and

got everything done in less than a week. We submitted the contract on Friday. Materials were dropped on Wednesday, and the roof was installed on Thursday. The crew did a fantastic job. Everything was cleaned so well. You would have never known that any work had been done. Jarrid kept me informed every step of the way. The roof looks fantastic and we are very happy with every aspect of service provided.

a wall outletKevin was a solid young professional in all of the communication I had with him. His response to my leaking skyight in the middle of a storm couldn't have possibly been better. I had water leaking down my wall, ready to pour right into a wall outlet. I was standing there, with a towel against the wall keep the water at bay when I called
Kansas City Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
. He came over in the middle of a rainstorm, got up on the roof and installed a tarp perfectly. This stopped my immediate problem, and held until he could come back and assess the situation. This is was one issue from hail damage on a reasonably young roof.
We did a full tear off and re-roof, it looks good from the street, and most importantly, not a single leak. The only grade other than excellent was the one I gave for "quality." I did so due to some significantly rough siding cuts made to be able to

the shingles/flashing in behind the siding. I understood the "why" behind this strategy, but there are some rough edges that could have likely benefitted a more deft hand.
Overall, a solid job with ultra-punctual service. I would use CB again. I just might be super specific about attending to aesthetic details where the shingles meet the siding.

The project manager
Kansas City Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
gave me options and made suggestions regarding roof replacement and changes to attic ventilation. I accepted his recommendations. He ordered materials and scheduled an installation date right away. The office staff was very helpful and courteous to me. On installation day, the crews showed up right on time. They worked very hard all day long and took no breaks even when the temperature got miserably hot. My neighbors commented that they expected a very noisy day but they were surprised that the noise level was minimal. The crews could have stopped work at the end of a normal business day and returned on the next day to finish, but they did not. They pressed on and worked until sunset just so they could fulfill the promise to complete the job in one day, which included cleanup of the property. The roof looks great. The new ventilation is a real plus and I am glad I accepted
Kansas City Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
's suggestions. As project manager, he returned to the job site numerous times during the day, to insure the crews were doing exactly what was agreed to in the contract. He was in contact with me on a regular basis and explained, in detail, everything about the various materials used and exactly what I could expect from the installation crews. He personally did the final inspection to make sure that I was satisfied and that the work was completed according to the high standards of

located and repaired the sources of wet grout on an exterior bathroom wall in our 1927 Brookside home in 2014, so when we had a similar problem in a different place after a period of very heavy rains, I called him again. I knew if anyone could find and fix the problem, it would be him.

came out, looked at the wall where the moisture had appeared, and immediately figured out that an area above the moisture needed to be recaulked. He also cleaned out a gutter that he thought might have exacerbated the problem. Because he was able to pinpoint the source of the problem so quickly, the repair took
Kansas City Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
about 10 minutes. Though this call was in no way related to the previous repairs

did on our home, he refused to take any payment for his work. He is a consummate professional and an expert in locating the source of wood rot and moisture problems - and in fixing them. I would never call anyone else in the K.C. metro area for this type of work!

We obtained quotes from 5 Angie's List recommended roofing contractors. Geremiah
Kansas City Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
, owner of G&G Restoration, worked very closely with us throughout the process to educate us on the products choices, installation process, possible upgrades, and the warranty. He was the only one that did not come in and tell us he was the only contractor in KC to do or use product XYZ or the only contractor to do XYZ. G&G Restoration started and finished as scheduled. If we ever had a question or concern, Geremiah immediately addressed them and always kept very open lines of communication. After the work was completed, the yard was left the same as it was when they arrived. Strongly recommend them for your roofing needs.

They did a good job. They were efficient and were completed within a few days. They got to me quickly and were very responsive. They cleaned up as they went along so I never had to deal with a big mess. I would use them again.

Just so you know, I am the person who filed the complaint with the BBB and shows as "resolved" after the business supposedly made a good faith effort to resolve the issue. The first thing I must point out is that they DID NOT make a good faith effort about any of my concerns, and the BBB did not step in to mediate or weigh the merits of either side. It is a downright shame that this complaint shows resolved, when it fact it merely "went away". Now, to tell you why I filed the complaint in the first place, I must convey that these two guys - father and son, Stean and
Kansas City Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
- were as nice as could be when they first came to give an estimate, and present their credentials. Very affable, pleasant, etc., although they repeated a few too many times (for my confidence level, anyway) how MUCH they would like to earn my business. I even mentioned to
Kansas City Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
on the side afterward that they need to
Kansas City Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
it down a bit, as it came across as "needy". Anyway, my partner on this rehab chose this company, and we finally got the roof installed in September of 2014. For what it's worth, to be fair, the workmanship of the roof itself is really good. Even the home inspector said so later. However, my complaint focused on a few things: 1. I had 2 rolls of tar paper on site which were inadvertently taken by the crew when the site was cleaned up; 2. There was no metal valley flashing installed, only overlapping shingled, despite the contract saying there would be; 3. The chimney flashing had not been replaced, repaired or even spray painted to match the roof so it was a terrible eyesore that
Kansas City Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
attention away from the new roof immediately; 4. Only 1" drip
Kansas City Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
had been installed around the perimeter of the roof, which is normal when a shingle roof is replaced by another single roof, but in this case it had been a tear-off of cedar shakes with new decking installed OVER the slats, making the gap between the decking and fascia much wider than normal - 2" flashing would have solved the problem of now having a gap. The biggest issue I had was that no written warranty was provided to me. I asked for this numerous times and the
Kansas City Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
answer was that once I sold the house and provided the new owners name, they would give it to me. In the meantime, no "draft", no "sample", nothing. I would have thought that they would have liked the opportunity to get their name in front of people who would be coming through on showings of this house, but no. When I called to raise these concerns, I was scolded, belittled, and yelled at by Stean, him telling me that having someone walk on the roof AT ALL would void the warranty and do damage to the roof. I tried explaining that the only person who had been on the roof was a guy who came by to collect the satellite dish for recycling. I called back and got
Kansas City Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
this time. He argued and argued, to the point my temper flared, and so I finally hung up on him. My partner called and had a much better conversation with one of them and got them to agree to send the roofing crew supervisor to come out.
Kansas City Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
brought the 2 rolls of tar paper, and agreed that the flashing should have been painted, so he went up there and did it. He also agreed that the wider drip
Kansas City Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
should have been ordered, but that
Kansas City Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
always ordered the "standard" materials and did not deviate from that, which he thought was a little "quick and dirty". He said he would speak to Stean about how wider drip
Kansas City Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
could be installed now that the roof was complete, but that doing so would be the right thing to do. He also acknowledged that Stean was something of a hot head whom he had had several disagreement with in the past.
Kansas City Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
issued me a refund of $200 for the lack of metal valley flashing. To my surprise, a couple weeks later, when I hadn't heard back from anyone, I called again and spoke to one of them and was told that
Kansas City Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
(supervisor) no longer worked with them. My guess is that
Kansas City Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
got fed up when they refused to fix the drip
Kansas City Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
(along with undoubtedly countless other past issues) and quit. When I filed the complaint about the roof, it included the drip
Kansas City Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
and the lack of warranty. In their two responses, all Stean did was rehash how my complaints were unreasonable, I had people traipsing all over the roof, etc. No real adult answers. So the BBB "closed" the complaint after I didn't respond a third time. The only reason I didn't respond was that I, too, would merely be restating the same things I had already said, which hadn't been addressed. I thought at the time that this is when the BBB would step in to assist with a mediated resolution. I was wrong. So now fast forward to May, 2015.The house is under contract, I know the buyers' names and we are set to close in roughly 10 days. So I send an email requesting the warranty on Thursday, April 30, with this information. Nothing. I call on Monday afternoon and speak to
Kansas City Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
. he says he just saw the email and was working on getting the warranty. Wednesday I call and speak to him again. He says he is still working on it and will place it in the mailbox. As of late Sunday afternoon, when I went to retrieve my last belongings from the house, there was nothing. Monday morning, May 11, I call and leave voicemail with each Stean and
Kansas City Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
. My realtor also calls and leaves two voicemails. Nothing. Tuesday morning, the day of closing, no one has heard from
Kansas City Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
, and all we get is voicemail when we call. That's when I opened what I thought was a NEW complaint with the BBB. But no. They said it was a complaint on the SAME ROOF so they closed it again!!! I called and spoke to a fellow at the BBB and said, very calmly, that all I wanted was for the new owners to get their warranty. Could he please speak to
Kansas City Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
and make that happen? He said he would look into it. That's the last I heard. I no longer own the house so I have no vested interest in the matter, and have no way of knowing if
Kansas City Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
sent anything to the new owners. I know this got lengthy, and undoubtedly Stean and/or
Kansas City Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
will have perfectly sound rebuttals if you were to ask about my situation when you are getting an estimate from them, but my caution to you, the potential customer is this: Can you even RISK not getting satisfaction from a purchase this expensive, which will presumably last many, many years? Can their price be so much cheaper that you think it might be worth it? Remember these things: 1. They gave me back MY OWN rolls of tar paper, not additional materials as a good will gesture; 2. They credited me $200 because they didn't perform what was in the contract, not because they were trying to appease me on other things; 3. They do not pay attention to you and your roof individually (i.e. 2" drip
Kansas City Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
), they just go from one sale to the next once they have your commitment. Is that the kind of company you want to do business with? If you DO choose to risk dealing with these bi-polar people, I sincerely hope you get a warranty before you pay in full.
