"I called
and sheet metal on 8/20/2015 and spoke to
. He was very friendly and professional.
" came out next day to give me an estimate. He had the best price for what I needed to have done. He told me that his crew would be there Monday the 24th. They showed up on time the day promised and completed the job the same day. I would definitely recommend them to anyone.

"The original price on the contract we signed was $4,700.00. After they removed the old shingles, I was told that I have to pay an additional amount of $1,600.00," with the total of $ 6,300.00 because the person who did the estimate made a mistake in measuring the square footage. The roof leaked in 3 places staining my ceilings because they worked while raining. Out of my good heart, I paid the additional cost & did not make them pay for the damages. It was a nightmare. I asked them to come back & replace the 2 ridge vents that they removed instead of just covering the vent holes with shingles.

5 Questions to Ask Before Hiring a Roofer

Before signing a roofing contract to replace or repair your roof, ask potential contractors for this information.

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?

I called the owner of the company,

, and he was nice. He said to call the office and they would come out and give me an estimate. I told them that I wanted to be here so I could talk it over and discuss the job with them.

told me that he couldn't do it right away, which was ok with me, and he'd get back with me to set up a day/time. I didn't hear from him for a few working days, so I again called the office. The receptionist told me that she'd seen measurements and she thought

then was trying to remember the particular job (they're busy) and asked me what type of roof I was looking to put over the patio. There was never any mention of roof, and I have nothing out there that would suggest a roof. I told
Brewer Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
that I needed to set up an appt to be here and discuss the job with him. He told me he couldn't give me a time, but we could agree on a day and he'd call with 2 hours notice so we could leave work to meet him at the house. That worked out ok, but I'd asked for an appt after 3 because I'm home every day after that time and he stated he couldn't make appts after 3 because that "was his paperwork time". Really? So he came out and my husband and I left work to meet him here. We told him what we wanted, he took some measurements, and he said he'd get back with us in the next two days with an estimate. After 3 days with no call, I called

to let him know that

is not being punctual. His response was that

was busy, and he'd call sometime in the next week. I called back to the office a couple of days later, and
Brewer Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
said he'd not been in the office because he'd suffered a back injury and he'd get back with me in a few days with an estimate. Mind you, this is a job where they would simply buy approx 40 feet of flashing and cut it and bend it on site. We have a little bit of trim around the windows that makes the bending and cutting a little more difficult, but this is not rocket science. I never heard from either

When it comes to roof replacement, everyone wants the best price, quality & careful install and hopefully done on time with a smile.

is where they will meet all of these requirements. I had interviewed 4 other roofing companies before (through Angie's List) I was fortunate enough to meet

Brown and his team. These guys are the "real deal"; all of the above plus professional, respectful, tidy and friendly. Admittedly, we were nervous knowing what a huge investment we were committing to but now, on the backside, we were so glad we went with

I purchased the $99 roof check also knowing I had a roof leak at the gable down the side of the front porch rotting out the soffit. They came out and did the assessment and minor repairs that came with the package. They gave me a quote of $250 for the additional repairs. I scheduled the work and it was completed. The next rain it leaked. I called the technician and he came back out. Next rain it leaked. Technician came back out this time a long time till rain but it leaked. Contacted the technician and he never got back to me. By this point it had been almost six months so I never called the office and they may have taken care of it but I just felt like I would try someone else.

Mr.

was prompt and professional. After assessing the roof and doing the minor repairs, he gave me an estimate of the remaining life of my existing roof, which was very helpful, since another roofer who had checked after a previous leak around the fireplace just wanted to replace the roof. When my roof does need replacement or when any problems arise, I plan to call

They showed up on time and got the job done. The only reason for the b grades is they did have to come back the next week to fix some leaks, but they did so promptly and without question.

crew arrived and got to work immediately removing old gutters efficiently. Most of work was completed in about 3 to 4 hours. They were short about 8 ft of down spout so had to return a couple days later to complete the job. Materials used are good and attachment to house done well and appears secure. A needed improvement over the old gutters,that were nailed up. Was strange that work crew asked if I could provide cold bottled water - and fortunately I did have some bottles in fridge, but it was an unexpected request considering these guys had been at other job sites all day and could have made a stop to get their refreshments along the way. I didn't mind providing it but never had that request from a team of workers before at the time they arrived to start.

Tech came on time and found source of problem quickly. However, it was a backed up A/C drain and not the roof. Was very happy with the thoroughness of the inspection and would call
