"Excellent!
, the owner, promptly called me back upon my first inquiry. He personally came the next day to inspect my roof and discuss his" assessment. He, unlike the two other companies contacted, actually took the time to discuss my options and inform me that I did not need a new roof, as the others had stated at a price of more than $16,000. I hired him on the spot. He returned the next day with the contract and began the work two days later, after a rainy weekend. He arrived promptly, along with his employee
, and completed the work that day.
took the time to keep me posted on the work being done and even suggested that I increase the size of the main roof's drain. I agreed and he ordered the part. It rained a few times following the roof work and there were no leaks at all. When the part arrived they returned to install it. This was not an easy task, but rather time intensive.
did an outstanding job. When the work was done, I was slightly concerned about the siding being discolored due to the new install.
did not hesitate to say they would take care of it. They returned a few days later and painted the siding so you could not notice the new drain installed. They also went above and beyond and repaired a loose drain pipe in the process.
kept in constant contact each and every step of the way and was an absolute professional. He and
worked diligently and showed great care when working on my home. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone needing roof maintenance and/or repair. If you are looking for trustworthy and honest company, look no further. Thank You
and
!

inspected our roof, arranged by our realtor as a pre-sale precaution. A few minor issues were found, nothing serious. Our buyer's" inspector found the same issues but our buyer did not require them to be fixed as a condition of the home sale. We decided to go ahead and fix the issues as a courtesy to the buyers. We had to ask Affordable twice for an estimate and waited almost a week to get the estimate. We called Affordable at least three times to schedule the service and the last time we were told they would call us back to schedule the work. I guess our $350 job was not big enough for them...they never called us back to schedule the service. The sadder part is we are a repeat customer of Affordable.

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 very friendly and professional. He came to my house couple times to make sure the measurements were accurate and would listen to our needs. He would also explain the details of the project and reassure the quality of their work. His price is reasonable. One thing I like the most is that he responds to email and phone call in a timely manner. I will recommend

(estimator) is very personable and his repairman competent, and has done minor repair work for us in the past which we were happy with, but concerned with it's high cost.
We had a stain from debris and the like running from a roof gutter that was visible from the rear yard.
Elmira Roofing Contractors Provider Name Locked
said that the job should cost $750 but he could do it for $450, no powerwashing involved, and that he'd barely be making a profit at that. So a week later, the "crew" (one repairman) arrived and departed within 45' for $450, with half of that time moving around hoses and small equipment. He used a powerwasher, which we could have done, and worse, was shot under a skylight away from the stain, that caused a minor leak that had to subsequently be repainted on the inside. This project was not worth more than $150. If you need a repair, they do it well, but clearly their pricing is way off.

New employee came out to do an estimate. Unfortunately he quoted a verbal range (900-1200) and it was not honored by the company (supervisor). The company came back with a written estimate that more than doubled the cost (over 2400) due to the fact that the new employee supposedly forgot to include the cost of materials in the verbal estimate?! The new employee originally mentioned that some firms would come by and quote me double the cost of his verbal estimate but not

. The supervisor (who did not return my calls) admitted that the company's prices were on the higher end. Ultimately I'm ending up getting the job done properly for more than 1000 dollars less.

He did a good job of identifying the probable source of a leak and also removed much debris from our roof and gutters. We plan to use him for gutter repair.
