(the owner) came out to do the estimate, and was on time, professional, and friendly. He was very specific in what they would do, and made sure I understood" the exact details of the proposed contract. The contract he brought for my review was not the best written contract however! I spent a couple of hours reviewing what it said, and rewriting portions of it to reflect what I thought it should say, relative to the work proposed.
was very flexible in dealing with me on this. This was not the cheapest bid. Once we decided to go with
(based on a friends' recommendation and review, and our own investigation and review), we arranged to have the work performed. When we called back,
told us he would send out his partner to work with us (
).
came out to meet us and work out the specifics with the rewritten contract. The work was performed on time and under schedule, and the crew was very professional in their actions. We had one small confusion in the contract:
signed up to
two layers of 30 pound paper down instead of one
of 30 pound paper (code for
Beach is 30 pounds total). I had talked with
about the extra protection - it was a concern of mine!
assured me he would honor the contract, and they did, in fact,
down two layers of 30 pound paper, without any argument or hiccup! They completed the work ahead of schedule, and did a beautiful job. The inspector had them come back once to 'fortify' an area near a skylight, but they accomplished that within a day, to the inspectors satisfaction. It hasn't rained here since the work was completed, so I don't know that our home is water-tight now, but I'm very confident it is! I was very pleased with the communication between us and both
and
. This experience improves my view of contractors (in general) a lot! I would work with them again in a heartbeat!! They're work was exemplary!!!

"We contacted a few companies and two of them were exorbitant. But these people were right on spot. They came right away. They gave us a very good estimate. We will have them do it" as soon as we get ready to have the work done. The estimate was $11000. The other estimate was like $18000. They came out quickly the next day. They were very professional and thorough. My husband was here and I wasn’t here. He said that they were personable. He liked them and had a lot of confidence in them.

spent much of a day here.
staff had to replace a rafter another contractor had removed and covered over to hide their mistake. We learned" about the error when we were on the roof and it sprang like a mattress.
fixed the mess another contractor left. They did excellent work and left the work site perfectly clean - you could not even tell they were here. We were very impressed and would use them again.

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?

It went great! My wife and I could not be happier. We will use them again in the near future to do some more work on our house. When we were looking for a company to put a new roof on our house I wasn't looking for the cheapest guy in town. You usually get what you pay for has been my experience. What I wanted was a reputable company that I knew would do the job right. A company that really cared about our home and wasn't just another "job" to them.

I purchased an Angie's List Big Deal and it turned out okay. They recommended something different and that is what I did. I think it should have cost more, but they did not charge me more for it.

Chimney for the work they did. First of all, the day I received a phone call from a scheduler from the company within FIVE MINUTES of making an online request for chimney repair. They were always punctual and professional,

inspected our chimney and boiler in the basement, as well as the chimney coming outside He gave us a MUCH better quote than other people who had been by the quote us. The highest one was $3400! That particular company said our chimney was too short and would need an extra three layers of brick, which would add an extra $1000 to the total price.

could tell just by looking at the chimney from the outside that it was plenty tall enough, and was already up to code. The day they completed the work they showed up a little early (it was fine with us, we didn't want to spend a Saturday around the house waiting anyway!), and were done within three hours. And they cleaned up everything! Overall a great job done at a great price. Will definitely use them again if need be.

On the initial installation they forgot to put on the leafguards. I only knew this when my painter noticed a couple. Weeks later. If he had not been here it would have been sometime before I was aware of no leafguards. A huge oversight.

did a very professional estimate, and we sat down for a good discussion about how it would be done and what materials would be used. Their quote ended up being somewhat higher than another larger roofing company. We decided to go with the cheaper quote.

Mr.
Brewer Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
came out with his assistant and checked the roof, found the leak.
It was too large a job and too late in the day to complete right then & there, so they scheduled a return visit a couple days later.
They were a little late in getting there at the appointment time but I work from home so it didn't matter....More /> They had to stop at one point due to a quick downpour, but they got the hole covered up in time and waited in the garage til the rain stopped.
Job was completed by about 5pm, hasn't leaked since.
I'd recommend them to others, they were also very happy to walk the property with me and answer other roof-related questions.
