"In December of 2013 I hired someone to work in my attic and he found that I had water dripping through my roof. I checked it myself and my fingertips were wet. I" had another roofer come and they poored some water on the roof, it went right through it into the attic. In January 2014 we called
and they were not cooperative. We went through the complaint process with the BBB and an arbitrator also determined that he installed a poor roof on the house and he should pay us back. He is not longer a member in good standing with the BBB. He has not paid us back to this day. A leak came through our kitchen ceiling in January 2014 and we collected 2 cups of water from the leak but
stated it was not their fault.

"They were efficient and finished in about a week. They did exactly what they said they would and the cost came out to exactly what was expected. They were friendly, professional,and cleaned up well.

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?

We waited a few weeks to write this review to give us time to experience the new roof during some different weather challenges. We have experienced rain, snow flurries and heat. The roof has been wonderful and we are extremely pleased with it. Art and his crew were very professional. They did everything they had quoted and did an excellent job. This was a complicated roof due to it being a log home and not a typical roofing job. Art understood the complexities that roofing a log home requires and was up front about the extra costs associated with them in his initial consultation and quote. Scheduling was not as smooth as he/we had hoped, but this was due to a supply issue obtaining the insulation panels. He did keep us informed of the delays and why and was very on top of the project details. Excellent project management. His crew arrived on time and worked diligently until it was to dark to see. They were here when they said they would be and even when Art was not on site the crew was professional. The clean up could have been a little better, we are still finding nails two months later. This may be due to the fact that we live on a heavily wooded lot with leaves instead of lawn and have a gravel drive instead of pavement. This may have made finding nails more challenging then normal. They did try to find them with a large magnet. One thing they had to battle the entire time was many leaves falling on them, the roof, and decking as well as an unusual cold snap with temperatures in the 30's at night. Overall, we would rate them as excellent and would recommend Art and his crew to anyone.

They were very prompt in coming to do the job, professional, and they did the job very very quickly. There were no delays of any kind. We got several quotes from other roofers, and they were the best. The quality of work was excellent.

if I could rate a company A+++, this would be one of them. I found this company on Angie's List initially after having a few other contractors out to give me estimates on replacing my roof. When I contacted this company, their response time was great initially and I received a call from Rich himself, the owner. We discussed my needs over the phone and he gave me a ballpark estimate, sight unseen, but made a follow up appointment to come out and ensure the initial estimate was correct. He was on time, very personable and knowledgable and his estimate over the phone was exactly the amount of his final quote, which was $700 less than any other contractor. Obviously I chose his company for the job and the day they were scheduled to be here at 7:30 am to start, they were actually 15 minutes early!! Can you imagine? Most of the time I'm left sitting around waiting. The crew was respectful and did an awesome job on my roof. I couldn't be more pleased and I'm quite picky about work done on my home. The job was supposed to take a day and a half but really only took a day and about an hour to finish up the second day. The crew left my yard completely clean and my house with a beautiful new roof. Rich even stopped by after the job was completed. If you need any type of work done on your home, I would HIGHLY recommend

The quality of materials and workmanship were excellent. The job site supervisor (

They go the extra mile to create a quality job, all hand nailed, using 2 extra nails per single (2 more than the local code requires, but the ...More /> number recommended by the manufacturer to get the highest wind rating.
The job site was left clean, other than a new roof you'd never know they'd been there.

was very easy to work with, responded via email and phone. The new roof looks good, the installer guys were hard working and respected the rest of the house. I'm not an expert on roofs, but so far (2 weeks post install) everything looks good and no problems! Would reccomend and use them again!
