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?

is wonderful. From start to finish, they were professional and trustworthy. King Cheek, the person I dealt with was phenomenal at organizing the renovation and dependable in every way. The workers were perfect- good people who did a wonderful job. Actually, better than I ever expected. Thank you to them and to Angie's list. I had had at least 5 other contractors come to give estimates. They were either terribly over priced, never showed up or never kept their appointments. Allied was wonderful and helped me solve some construction problems that had been giving me nightmares for a year. Thanks again!

nailed the aluminum siding back onto the house. We both felt this could solve my 2 water stains that were showing up on the garage ceiling. If this doesn't solve anything, then we will look into replacing the aluminum siding with vinyl siding.

did not pressure me at all to replace it, which I appreciated. He said the gutters were clear, and he resealed 2 bathroom vents on the roof while he was up there, no extra charge.

2 months ago we asked
Fort Madison Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
for an estimate for a new tar and gravel roof as we have multiple leaks in an apartment building we manage. He said he could come out on a Thursday to provide the estimate. He did not show up until the following Sunday. We told him we were Angie's list members and would like to take advantage of the -$250 for members. He gave us a reasonable quote but did not include the $250 off. I emailed
Fort Madison Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
and told him we would like to schedule him to replace our roof and asked him if the quote included the $250 off. He never responded to the Angie's List discount question, but scheduled us a month out for a new roof. The original date scheduled was set for August 17th. The night before August 17th
Fort Madison Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
emailed us that he would have to push the date back a 'few days' due to lots of rain in the area causing leaks to other roofs. A week passes by and still no word from

, so I email him to ask what is going on.

replies his foreman's relative passed away and he had to leave the country for a couple weeks for the funeral. Our heart does go out to anyone who loses a close relative, so of course we decide to wait patiently again.

then contacts us on September 1st and states they can begin work on September 2nd. On the night of September 1st, yes the same day he rescheduled us,

This was the first time my husband and I had to do anything of this magnitude to our house, and I have to say I was pretty nervous and didnt know what to expect.
Fort Madison Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
and his associates have been so wonderful. They helped with the process step by step and have been available to us whenever we needed it, by phone calls and texts and even made house calls when we needed to talk with them. This is first class service for sure. I am so amazed. They have been so honest and patient with us. I was worried we were going to be taken advantage of since this was our first time doing a repair through our insurance and mortgage company but even USAA said they were a well known and reputable company. The work they did was incredible and everything looks as perfect as it did when we bought our new built house in 2008. Thank you

, the salesman was very professional and answered our MANY questions before providing a reasonable quote. He didn't nag us to make a decision quickly or pressure us to buy more than what we wanted/needed like we experienced with other companies. The installers were great and did beautiful work in the time they promised. Our property is difficult to put up and move ladders because we have a ton of plants near the house. The guys took extra precautions to ensure they didn't damage anything which was much appreciated. Clean up was amazing - I exected to find nails/screws for weeks after they were done, but only found 1 or 2. No other signs that they had even been there. The price was very reasonable and beat out most other reputable roofing companies in the area. We were very happy with our decision to go with

and can't believe how quickly we had a beautiful new roof.

J Andewprson Construction was quick to respond, prompt service and very professional. The quality of paint was great from
Fort Madison Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
. This could have been an excellent over all experience with a little more attention to detail by the paint crew. The prep work which is the foundation for any good paint job was not as thorough as I would have liked. The crew didn't pick up well as well as i thout they should have after themselves as I found 4 razor blades around the house( fortunately not been cut) as well as plastic bottle caps and balled up masking masking tape. All that said, it must also be said that I like attention to detail and want any work I hire out to bedone to the same standard I would have done myself.
Fort Madison Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
offered to bring the crew back and address items of concern when I was providing this feedback after the job was complete. I declined the offer as it was all minor detail stuff that I preferred to take care of myself.
