"We would recommend
Son's Roofing. We had 5 roofing companies out to look at our roof/damage and
was the only one that suggested" fixing our roofing issue so we don't have more damage and not just sell us new shingles. It cost a bit more to add all the extra insulation and ice and water shield but it was correcting the problem and not just covering it up. Crews where very professional and clean. They are extremely busy so get on their schedule as soon as you can. We had to wait almost 2 months from contract to new roof but it was worth the wait. I would say they are one of the best in west Michigan.

"I contacted R&T in mid-summer to get their opinion on the best way to address some ice dam issues we have been having at our home over the past few years. They recommended a comprehensive" air sealing and insulation package for the attic and examination of a valley-area of our roof. Their bid was right about 8K to perform the work, and we agreed. It took a while to get scheduled since this is their busy season, but we finally got on the books and the work was performed yesterday (10/13/14). The crew arrived and were friendly and professional. They got to work and after about 6 hours the job was complete. They blew in cellulose insulation to an R50 value, air sealed what needed to be sealed, and installed baffles where needed. Our attic space is awkward and I am sure there were some challenges, but they banged it out without problems. Afterward they cleaned up so you never knew they were there. The roof work included ensuring no damage to the underlying roof structure, making some minor changes to the way the gutter intersected with the valley area of our roof line, and replacing a few square feet of shingles. As I watched them, I thought I probably could have done this myself and saved that part of the expense - but live and learn. Overall, I thought they did a great job - of course, we will not know the true effectiveness of the efforts until winter - but we are hopeful this will remedy the situation. Overall, I give R&T an "A" for their professionalism, their quality of work, and their customer service. I would recommend them.

New Kensington Ice Dam Removal Services Provider Name Locked
inspected our attic. Said we have plenty of insulation, and potential heat losses through fixtures. Ventilation a potential issue.
He said this could be fixed at the cost of thousands of dollars, but would also require attic to be reinulated. Suggested waiting to test for any ice dam issues this winter, and then reassess. Appreciated the honesty about costs and payback.

I had an significant ice dam with tiny watermark inside house. Originally called
New Kensington Ice Dam Removal Services Provider Name Locked
and discussed steam removal. However, since it was in a difficult spot above a flat roof (risky to have all the melt/water go onto the flat roof potentially causing another leakage problem there), we re-evaluated and instead
New Kensington Ice Dam Removal Services Provider Name Locked
and his two guys meticulously shoveled the roof...allowing the sun to melt the ice dam. This did the trick. He only charged me half the minimum charge since they ended up not steaming. Pleasure to deal with. Patient, collaborative problem-solving. Very sharp; knows his trade.
I also believe he was able to come the same day I called or next day; very responsive. Only regret is that when I called again several months later for another potential job; I never got a call back. I know he takes his own calls (at least at that time), so he may be tough to get a hold of sometimes.

Mr.
New Kensington Ice Dam Removal Services Provider Name Locked
seems very professional, knowledgable, earnest and honest. The roof looks beautiful and does not leak (we've had 3- storms since its installation). His crew were able to begin work within days of the signed contract, arrived on time, worked tirelessly, and finished ahead of schedule. They were pleasant and professional.
However, for $24,000, I expected my roof to look and act like new, AND the ceiling around my skylights to look like they did before the work was done. (When we had the roof replaced on our prior house, which was half the size of this one, it only cost $7,000).
Unfortunately, when they removed the old skylights, they damaged the
New Kensington Ice Dam Removal Services Provider Name Locked
of the ceiling that is in contact with the skylight framing such that we now have ugly, ragged edges. I am guessing they did not cut the caulking with a knife before they lifted off the old skylight, so some of the drywall got torn away. This is
New Kensington Ice Dam Removal Services Provider Name Locked
to taking your car in for a new bulb and getting it back with a chipped headlight cover -- it works better but looks ugly.
When we asked if they would fix this, they said that it would cost extra ($80/hr, which seems high for a relatively
New Kensington Ice Dam Removal Services Provider Name Locked
patch and paint job with flat white ceiling paint). So I am going to have to waste a couple hours hauling out my ladder, spackle and paint.
Also, one of their workers tracked something onto our bedroom carpet and we had to spend 15 minutes cleaning that up with carpet cleaner. They should wear shoe covers if they come inside the house with dirty shoes/boots.
Lastly, this may occur with all roofing jobs: we had a few nail pops appear in the ceilings, presumably from vibrations caused by the nail
New Kensington Ice Dam Removal Services Provider Name Locked
. So, yet another repair I have to make.
Bottom line:
New Kensington Ice Dam Removal Services Provider Name Locked
seems good at replacing roofs, but I would be cautious about having them replace skylights and would certainly ask how they respond to interior damage before hiring them.

1. I had a new asphalt shingle roof installed by
New Kensington Ice Dam Removal Services Provider Name Locked
in 2008. Bad roof. New shingles were installed over the old shingles.
New Kensington Ice Dam Removal Services Provider Name Locked
told me they no longer re-roof over old shingles as this method is prone to failure.
2. The roof developed a leak.
New Kensington Ice Dam Removal Services Provider Name Locked
charged me to fix it 3 times over 2 years but it continued to leak.
New Kensington Ice Dam Removal Services Provider Name Locked
acknowledged that the leak was caused by an improperly installed flashing.
3. Rather than attempt another repair
New Kensington Ice Dam Removal Services Provider Name Locked
sent a price for a whole new roof. They admitted the problems were due to their work BUT would not give any reduction in the price of a new roof or for any repairs for their errors.
4. I have lost all confidence in the company and had the repairs done by another contractor who did the repairs in a timely and workmanlike manner. The contractor also told me that the original shingles were in poor condition and new shingles should not have been installed over the old roof. The contractor confirmed that the leak was due to improperly installed flashing.

Excellent Job! I chose this company due to knowledge that my employer uses him for roof and gutter installation and repairwork and he always does an excellent job. I like to support Deaf-owned businesses like this one. I tcorresponded with him by text message (781-733-0095) and I briefly explained the problem. He arrived with all the right tools for the job, had plenty of ladders, and had flashing in the truck to make repairs. He solved a problem that 5 other contractors were not able to fix. He was smart enough to come on a rainy day to troubleshoot more effectively. I attempted to persuade him to install for me some add-on items (gutter covers) and he declined- stating that those devices do not usually work and would be a waste of money. That kind of honesty is pretty rare, so I will definitely hire him again in the future!

Went great. Took a little longer than expected and even cut a deal on the gutter screens because he forgot them on the original bid

He did an excellent job. His helpers were pleasant and they cleaned up after they were done. I would highly recommend this company to anyone looking for tree removal.
