"Purchased an Angie's List special for roof repair for $299. They contacted me within a day or 2 via email. I requested they wait until after holidays. They" were very accommodating. When I finally chose a date they came out right away. Very personable and polite. Took pictures of the damage. Recommended a new roof but was NOT at all pushy. I listed n/a for quality as it's only been a few days since the repair. Time will tell if the quality of the repair holds up. Not worried, however, I feel that the repairs will be fine.

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?

responded promptly to my request through the Angie’s List website, and then I received an e-mail with confirmation of the
appointment and contact information for the service manager. I sent an e-mail with a question about the repair job to

arrived as scheduled and performed the repair efficiently. It was great to have the broken roof tile finally replaced. (I had
obtained replacement roof tiles myself by visiting several roofing supply outlets, but decided not to do the work myself.) Because the repair went quickly and adjacent tiles didn't break,

did not charge me for his time and work. I appreciated the skill and care in his work, and I enjoyed meeting him. I would not hesitate to ask him back for a larger job, and I am very glad that I found a person that I could trust for roofing work.

From start to finish I couldn't ask for more. Received an estimate, called to schedule, I was told at least a month out which was no problem, then I get a phone call that they are going to do the work sooner. Workers showed up on time of first day, cleaned up after themselves and returned to finish the next day (Christmas Eve), cleaned up the best they could considering it was dark out. Entire crew pleasant to talk to and very polite. New roof looks great!!

Called company late last week/early this week to have them repair soffit that had been pushed up (looks like an animal is trying to get in). They said someone would be out yesterday (1/22/15) or today (1/23/15). About 1pm today (1/23), I hadn't received a phone call so I called them to find out what was going on. The person (Mrs.
Brewer Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
) who answered the phone said I wasn't on their daily board and had no record of me calling to schedule service. I explained the situation, how it was scheduled for one of two days, and I would like the service completed. She said she would find her workers and see where they were. She called back about an hour later to say they were finishing a job and then would head to complete the work. After that I never received another phone call from them. They never showed up either. I tried calling back about 5pm and no one picked up the phone. I used this company for new gutters a few months ago, and they did a great job. My parents had them do a ton of work this past summer too which turned out fantastic. That's why I called them again. I am truly disappointed in their service. With needing a new roof this year, it is hard for me to say I'd use them again in the future. Customer care is lacking.

, the sales consultant was very professional and detailed. She explained everything and was not in a rush nor pushy just to get the sale. The installers came and installed the windows and were very professional as well. Windows can create a lot of mess and they did not leave anything behind and cleaned everything that got dusty during the process. I did have one issue with the sealant around the inside of the windows come up that I did not notice on the day of installation. I reported it to the office and received a call back the same day to schedule a redo of the sealant. Every job is going to have a thing or two that might need adjustment however it's not always handled in the quick and professional manner like

did. I would hire them again if I had to do it all over. GOOD COMPANY!

Our house has had issues since we have lived here where during heavy rains the water will overflow in both the back and front of the house. This would occur even after we've cleaned the gutters. We called
Brewer Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
& Co to come out and take a look at the issue.
Brewer Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
came out the next day and showed us the issue was the design of the gutter system installed by the original builder. All of the water fed to one side of the house (both front and back) and the existing gutters just weren't large enough to handle them. We purchased new 6" gutters and scheduled the installation. On the day of installation, everything was quick and without issue. The color choice (of which they had many to choose from) was just perfect. In addition, they installed the hangars every two feet, as opposed to four feet as was done by the original builder. I highly recommend
Brewer Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
& Co for anyone looking to repair or install new gutters. They were great to work with.
