Roofing reviews in Davenport
We were told that construction was to start the middle of May. When the builders didn't show, we were told he hadn't given us that date. (The major hinderance was that the GC was not licensed in Davenport IA which has its own licensing and is more strict than IA. He had told us that he would pass the test by the time we were to start. Didn't happen)
Next we had to wait for different reasons including our builders had started working on another job. Then we were told that because they weren't licensed in Davenport, we would have to go take out the Building Permit. This was the only time we saw the GC; he came up to pay for it.
The GC all knew that our main power line post to the house would need to be moved because it was in the way. He 'forgot' about it. The builders had to work around it until they could go no further. It wasted two weeks while the builders arranged to get this moved. Instead of having the building supplies on site ahead of time, the builders were continuously having to go pick them up. The GC did not arrange for an electrician for the site, so that caused numerous delays. Once we did have and electrician, there were numerous delays because the GC did not communicate well with them. My wife had to act as the go between with them and the city's electrical inspector on numerous occasions causing delays in the inspection.
In conclusion, an A for the company's owner, A for the builders, and an F for the GC. I would use this company again as long as I had assurances that this GC had nothing to do with it. I will give him one concession though. We were told that he is licensed in Illinois and Iowa but not Davenport. Davenport seems to be very protective of its own local builders so they do make it difficult for someone to break into the

When talking with the company - had to threaten going to court before they agreed to redo the whole roof.
The roof was replaced and inspected by the
Company did not have a building permit last fall - but did have one this spring.
Still waiting for repairs of water damage inside of house.
When we called to report the leak - they promised to repair it. When they were here to do the repairs - we had a carpender here to inspect the roofing job with the roofing crew.
. The roof was so POORLY put on - No needed repairs had been done - a hard wind would have stripped all the shingles. Nails were sticking up. Acorns were shingled over. Strips of shingles came up when pulling up one shingle. Holes in the decking under shingles had not been repaired, just shingled over. Pictures were taken of everthing.
.At this time we demanded a new roof. And had to threaten going to court in order to get the job done right. April 2012 they returned to reroof..
This time they had a building permit. They did strip the old roof and replaced with new materials. Repairing the holes in the roof that should have been done the first time.
