Roofing reviews in Novato


Yorkshire was hired to reroof 58 homes in our
Novato Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
. As a Board member I was part of the decision making process. They out bid 4 other roofers. The price, professionalism, experience and quality of work were the reasons for choosing Yorkshire over the other bidders. The owner of this family run company was on site every day of this large and complex project directing his crew ensuring a quality job. His attention to detail was a big plus. Some days he was on site late into the evening to ensure quality work, clean up and making sure we were water tight as this project began in the winter months.
Our homes have unique architecture with many siding to roof junctions that created challenging situations which were resolved effectively with custom made flashing. At the homeowner's direction and approval he repaired any siding issues that comprised the water tight envelope. He offered homeowners skylights, solar tubes and gutters at the owner's discretion at very reasonable prices. He added guitar guards at a reasonable price.
He has a stable crew and treats them with great respect. His crews are fast and efficient and clean up everyday. He helped guide the

Oh my God they are fantastic. Oh my God , they are the best. They are just really good they are the best vendor I have ever used. Well because my roof is beautiful. What happened was, we had a you know, they came out and gave me a bid. My roof was having some issues and I did not think it was, he did not even think it was that bad, and what happened was that the roof started to fail, like it was too weak. And they came out everytime I called them. Because we had ran into like a time, and they had to do a schedule, a reschedule of three weeks and I am waiting for this roof. They came out every time it rained and a drop came in through that, if I had called for a complaint, they came out immediately that day. And they needed time to fix it but they instead of fixing would replace the whole thing. It was a $ 30,000 roof. Yeah, so it was a huge roof. So they did a great job. One of the other contractors came out after that, and said you know,
Novato Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
your roof is beautiful. Modern methods, they are like A+ . I worked them over, I made them put me on their insurance. They are really quick, every time I called them out, they did not charge me and they knew that I was going to replace the whole thing. And I was really really very happy.

Another roofer had installed a new roof that had not been vented properly, and stains had formed inside on the vaulted ceiling near the top.

Sleep of

said that the ridge vents would relieve some of the problem immediately. He said that to properly vent the roof from the ridge to the eves, the new roof would have to be torn out, but the tear out would all be below the ridge so the ridge vents he installed would remain in tact. I paid about $180 to reopen the permit, and I paid
Novato Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
$710 for labor and materials. After I paid him, I called to request an invoice for my records but never received it. I later received another opinion that the roof could not be vented without taking out the ridge vents, and only the ridge venting materials could be spared but not the labor. I do not know if this opinion is correct or not. I called to ask
Novato Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
but he does not return my calls. I may have paid for work that will have to be repeated but he will not provide an explanation of how to perform the repair he recommended.

The new roof was installed improperly. The roofer failed to install proper venting which is essential to the life of the roof. It looked beautiful in June but by the time of storms in December, stains formed on the livingroom ceiling. I called the roofer and he came out and said there is not a leak, and he told me to get a dehumidifier. I received two opinions in January from roofers who said the roof should have been vented, and without venting it will overheat in the hot weather and mildew in the wet weather, which will cause the roof to deteriorate quickly and also cause moisture problems inside the house. It was supposed to be a 30 year roof. An air gap was needed from the ridge to the eves. This requires possibly tearing out the new roof. The roofer responded to the information on venting with "Boo to You." He must be in his 30's or 40's. He also suggested a repair method of cutting strips down the plywood, which I was told would destroy the sheer value of my home. A licensed roofer should know how to vent a roof properly and should not suggest make shift repairs. I went to the bond company and received a partial check with no explanation on how to repair my roof for the monies provided. So by now over a year has gone by with no resolution. This contractor receives most of his business through Yelp, but the review I posted on Yelp disappeared in a short time.

They were responsive from the first call. They provided an estimate timely and were willing and responsive to adjust from pulling up the old roof to an overlay. They provided shingle samples to choose a color and had the entire roof done in one day (shingles) and came back after the rain to do the coating.

It was a terrible experience and now the roofer won't respond to come out and fix it. It has been ongoing for almost 4 years and I have been patient. I thought about
Novato Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
him in small claims court but he only keeps a post office box and he has been very evasive. I have been so patient. He promises to come out again to do the repairs and then never shows. I gave him 3 jobs on a house that he did work on and it was okay and I was happy with it. Then I gave him a job to work on my girlfriend's roof for a tar and gravel flat roof and immediately had problems. That has not been completely resolved for 4 years. He did another flat roof on this property and that has been okay. The problems have consistently been on her residence. I have probably placed over 50 phone calls and have had a dozen conversations on the phone. After a year he finally came out and said that he didn't know it was that bad. After the first of this year he came out and said that when the rains stopped he would come back. We haven't had very much rain. He said that there in his experience there is always one particular house that he has to come back on. He said not to worry and he would take care of us forever. He said not to worry about it and he would be out the next day. He never showed up. He said he had the flu and would be out on Thursday and never showed. It has been consistently like that. I really only wanted the problem solved. He is a very smooth talker. His mouth is full of promises but his hands are full of disappointment. I understand that mistakes occur but it is how it is handled afterwards. He tried to correct the mistakes once but it didn't work and it continued to deteriorate to the point that there is mold inside the house now. The entryway door into the house has deteriorated because the water from the roof would pour off the roof above the main entryway and slide down the screen and hit the threshold so water pours on my head when I walk in and out of the house. He put a gutter there but didn't install it correctly so the water goes behind the gutter and doesn't do any good. It is really, really difficult. I had several other estimates and he came in lower on this job because of the prior work I had given him.

Our home had an older wood shake roof, and it was time to upgrade. I called several roofing contractors and received 5 estimates.

, was highly recommended by my real estate agent (buyer's agent) from feedback she has received from her other clients.Our roof was more expensive than just a regular roof replacement because wood shake does not have plywood underneath the roof. Therefore, we had to have a full covering of plywood installed along with the new composite shingles.

was on-site every day with his crew, which made the job move smoothly. The finish work done to the vents, flashing and molding is superb.

was not the cheapest estimate I received, but you really do get what you pay for with a roofer.

The overall experience was great!
Novato Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
, owner of

, is an incredible roofing contractor. In
Novato Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
County, to get a roofing contractor to return a phone call, let alone answer questions can be a major feat! Not only did he promptly return my phone call to arrange for an estimate, he provided valid answers to several questions raised while comparing the 3 bids I received. When I took longer than usual to make my final decision, he followed up to find out if I had any questions -- his competitors did not. The references I checked with were glowing about

Excellent office staff. Good communication. Estimates very clear with good description of work. Started on time and coordinated well with my tenant. Finished on time.

It was an excellent experience with them. The communication with them before the job was first class. They knew everything that needed to know and were aware of the new fire regulations that they had to deal with. They gave us a competitive bid and they were the most impressive putting their bid together and the way they carried it out was also first class. The workers were very good and they cleaned up well after themselves and I can?t find any fault with them.
