Grooms was a super nice guy, but told me that he was not able to service my area. He was kind enough to give me some recommendations for" this service. If he ever did start to service my area, I would call him again.

"Great. I reached out to 4 companies to get quotes, they were the last to respond but also the cheapest by more than half. Considering it was 20 minute job I thought" their price wasa much more reasonable than all the other quotes above $100 for a 20 minute job. While he was up there, he inspected the condition of my gutters. The other guys wouldn't have done this. They would rather upsell me from clearing the clog to cleaning all the gutters, even though my house is a year old and there aren't any tall trees nearby. In fact that is exactly what another provider did... $100 to clear the clog, or $126 to clean all of them. Seems like a great deal. Unless they don't need to be cleaned!

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.

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? 
?
Sounds like wet felt to me. What process did the roofers use when replacing the roof? Did they tear it off and felt it in on day one and then shingle it on day two?   This method is frowned upon with organic felt paper because it leaves the felt exposed to morning dew.  Moisture such as dew will cause the felt to wrinkle.  Or if the roofers got caught in a rain and didn't protect the felt from the rain but kept on shingling this can also happen. 

The wrinkles will lay down flat if allowed to dry before first installing the shingles. However this is a waste of time. This is why I live by two 1 rule, never tear off more than you can put back in the same day, and if by some chance you opened more than you can shingle, tarp it. Felt is not water tight. 

I really am only speculating. Without seeing it I really can't give an accurate answer. 

There are a few other possible reasons, and framing (actually sheathing) is another possible reason. If the plywood is fastened improperly or if the plywood was installed without a gap between the boards for expansion and contraction, ripples can also occur.   The difference is you will see the ripples spaced very evenly 4' or 8' to match the spacing of the plywood.  If it is the case of improper fastening of the plywood, meaning the fasteners missed the framing so nothing is holding the plywood and it warps, you could easily depress the warped plywood with your foot. If the plywood actually buckled due to lack of expansion gap, you would not easily be able to depress with your foot.  If the roofer didn't install the plywood, it wouldn't really be his fault, though if he or his crew saw it when working and didn't fix it then they probably should have. But I am not going to play the blame game unless I know exactly what the cause is.


A storm ripped through the area two years ago. The storm chasers use the cheapest possible shingles, and I am seeing something I haven't seen before. I am only guessing but what it looks like to me is like the shingles are expanding too much and causing the ripple effect I mentioned above in regards to plywood and the lack of expansion gap. The difference is there is no expansion gap required with shingles.  This affect is something I never saw before and is only related to one cheap commodity dog house shingle which alot of cheapo roofers like to use.  I've been roofing 14 years and this year is the first time I have been seeing this particular problem. It seems to come and go, which also tells me expansion is some how involved. I don't think you'd be able to depress it with your foot, though I've never tried.


Can you post some pictures?   
?
To answer simply, yes, shingles can be defective, but most shingles are not rated for hail storms and therefore not covered by warranty replacement.  The shingles available through box stores are the lower line choices available and although they have good ratings on wind-speed, etc. they usually only come with a manufacturer warranty which depreciates quickly once purchased.  This sounds like an insurance claim to me; I used to work for a roofing company and here in the Northwest, we don't get much hail, but I have owned a house in Florida and experienced the damage a real storm can do.  I would suggest you have a couple of contractors look at the problem and see if the damage can be repaired instead of replacing the whole roof unless you have massive plywood sheeting damage under the shingles.

Cajun Softwash is THE company to beat for the best customer service and quality work. From the initial quote request to the finished job, I was extremely pleased with

and his crew. Dealing with a company that cares for its customers and delivers excellence consistently is so unusual these days.
My co-worker had a great experience with Cajun Softwash, who cleaned his roof, but he told me they cleaned a variety of exterior surfaces.

contacted me within hours of my request for a quote on his website. We set up a time for him to come by, and he took the time to give me a very detailed quote for all of the items I asked for pricing on (siding/
Providence Roof Cleaners Provider Name Locked
, brick, concrete, stucco, wooden door, roof, etc). Once I chose a package of several items and agreed to a price, we set up a date for them to do the work. They spent almost 2 full days cleaning the outside of the house and the results were amazing. Payment was not requested until we were satisfied that the job was done well. You can visit them on Facebook for my before and after pictures, along with others. All in all, I was extremely pleased with both the responsiveness and professionalism of the initial quote and with the quality of the work that was done.

My experience went okay. They did a fine job. I had a frustrating time getting something scheduled. They were really busy and there were weather issues so they kept having to reschedule me. They were very pleasant to work with., however.

The cleaning was great, so I thought at first. Afterwards, both roofs sprung leaks. I emailed them about it and they said it was impossible that they were the cause of the leaks. I feel that it is too much of a coincidence though. I had to payout $1,600 to fix one of the roofs and the other I was able to fix myself.

IT went excellently, all services were preformed beyond expectations.
Providence Roof Cleaners Provider Name Locked
was on time for the initial meeting, provided an accurate quote with the addition of driveway and walkway washing at an exceptionally reasonable cost to make the total job look great. The work was done exactly on time, my roof, driveway, walkway and house looks brand new. We did not need to be present, and got a great job. No one would be unhappy with the work preformed, unless they were unhappy already. The did GREAT!

The van that pulled up said something different than the title of their company. He began to damage the roof and he stopped. The wood didn't look good and he said I needed a roofer. The only thing they could do was the wood repair, then they walked off the job. Felt like I was overcharged. It turned out we didn't even need new wood. the only part that was rotten was the part in the corner. They arrived on time but walked off the job.

was a pleasure to work with. He's a great communicator, he's responsible, and best of all his work is excellent. We had been in contact with at least four different companies over the course of several months about stripping and refinishing our deck, and all of them ended up flaking out on us. By contrast,

was super responsive; he was out at our house within hours of our first contact, he explained what he would do (and when he would do it), and delivered a highly competitive bid. Once hired, he did exactly as promised, keeping on schedule and on budget. We ended up hiring him to clean our gutters as well, and there too he did a great and thorough job. I really can't say enough good things about him and his crew -- they are total pros. Thank you

I really liked this company. I was looking for someone who was bonded and licensed. I called and
Providence Roof Cleaners Provider Name Locked
came out the next day to give me an estimate. He was courteous, punctual, very professional in every way. I liked the estimate so we made the appt. for the next week. I received emails estimates, a reminder that they would be coming to do the work, and they even let me know that day that they were ahead of schedule and they would be like to come a little early. Roof was cleaned and treatment applied. They cleaned up their mess, and even blew off my deck and cleaned up the debris. I would recommend their work and I told them we would see them in a year.
