Century Roofing Inc
Recent Review: Century Roofing did a good job from giving estimates to doing the complete job. They provided multiple options for roofing. As we were waiting for home association approval, they were patient and giving us call backs to schedule the work. Work completed with no issues. The only thing our renters mentioned was that they were not cleaning up on a daily basis so there were nails and other debris on the deck and in the front area. It did not bother a lot but that was the only small feedback I got from my renters. I am happy with the job they did and it was the cheapest I found as I took quotes from many different roofing companies.

Cosmos Roofing
Recent Review: We have contacted three different roofers and decided to go with Cosmos roofing, even though they were not the lowest bid. Alex is definitely a no-nonsense guy who clearly explained what Cosmos would do for us without hard-selling. He saved us a lot of  trouble long term since he explained right away why tile roof wouldn't work for our house (BTW that would have been the most expensive options for us). We have received a list of local references which was very useful. With new shakes having arrived right around the holidays, and due to couple of rainy weeks, we have encountered a delay starting with the new roof, but were kept abreast of changes continuously. Cosmos crew did a great job on our new roof, which really looks beautiful! Everyone was very professional and courteous, we have not encountered any problems during the process. We would definitely recommend Cosmos roofing to our friends and neighbors.

Recent Review: Excellent job. After I called they were very helpful in scheduling and helping me pick out a shingle type. I advise that the homeowner is around when job is done. The company is very responsive to questions. Get a contact so if you have to call you know a phone and a person's name.

AGL Roof Co Inc
Recent Review: AGL conducted a thorough inspection of the old roof, laid out clearly what roof issues needed to be addressed, and provided us with some options with respect to their findings.  (Our options were somewhat limited because we had some homeowners' association roof rules to abide by, but AGL made the options and the pros and cons clear.)  AGL was also very clear about the process itself: duration of job, pulling permits, clean-up, inspections, etc.  We were made aware that there might be additional costs related to any necessary repairs depending on what was uncovered after the job was started (luckily these proved to be minimal--but we were glad to be prepared rather than surprised). Although AGL's bid was not the cheapest we received, it was certainly also not the most expensive, by some considerable margin. Overall, we think AGL hit the sweet spot on price. The work was started and completed exactly as promised (started Monday morning, completed Friday afternoon).  Nothing was damaged, everything was promptly and thoroughly cleaned (although had we known our garage was not covered by plywood under the shakes, we would have covered our stuff there more carefully--still finding old nails and other roof detritus in nooks and crannies). The job supervisor, Steve, came out frequently and kept us well-informed about progress.  The work crew was very professional, polite, and respectful of our needs in the home.  We've had several hard rain episodes since the job was finished and the new roof has passed the tests with flying colors to this point. The roof looks great and we now look forward to (rather than dread) the rain we badly need. Our experience with AGL was excellent.

Agate Beach Building Company
Recent Review: We pretty much knew we wanted to hire the crew at Agate Beach Building as soon as we started talking to owner Bob Hein about the new roof and repairs needed on the family's 80-year-old beach cottage. We collected 4 written bids for the work (2 others promised bids and never delivered). Agate Beach's quote for the roof was essentially the same price as  2 of the other 3 bids, but included much more detail about what would be done to remedy attic bird intrusion, how adequate ventilation would be provided given the conversion from cedar shake roof to asphalt shingle, and materials and techniques that would be used. The roof work was a typical fixed-price bid, but dry rot repairs were based on time and materials because the extent of damage under the floor and behind the walls of the porch was unknown. In the end, the total cost was slightly less than Bob's estimate of what total costs would run, despite the fact we had added 2 more items to the work order. Granted, this was due in part to the fact the hidden damage was less extensive than Bob feared it might be, but given some of our conversations with other contractors, I'd have to say his assessment of the work that would be required was the most accurate. Bob told us his experience included time working for a roofing manufacturer on warranty claims, which gave him a lot of first-hand knowledge about all the installation mistakes that can negatively affect the performance of a roof over time. We liked the fact that Bob personally works on the job -- doesn't just turn it over to employees -- but also that he works with a crew of about 5 guys, so the job goes much quicker than it would with someone working alone or with only one other person. Another thing I appreciated was Bob's ability to know what really needs fixing and what can be left alone. We had one contractor tell us, as part of his bid, that all siding needed to be replaced and underlying rot issues addressed at a cost of approximately $15,000 over and above the cost of a new roof. Bob concluded there was no rot under the siding that needed attention, and that replacement of siding in several areas, at a cost of several hundred dollars, would suffice when combined with a good caulking and painting job next season. In other words, we got the sense that Bob has a good feel for what is needed and what is not, that he will NOT "pad" the job with unnecessary work, but won't cut corners either. At some point we will need to replace framing around a couple of our windows where there is some decay, but elected not to do that work now because it would have added significant costs to the job. Bob supported that decision, telling us it was something that could be done at some time in the future without putting us as risk of a much bigger problem. The roof and repairs look good. The job was done in a little more than a week with everything cleaned up and hauled away. So we're quite happy with the work.

Alta Roofing & Waterproofing, Inc.
Recent Review: Alta Roofing was a pleasure to work with.  We had 6 roofing contractors provide us quotes and many were hand written with vague details.  We really appreciated how Alta utilized technology and provided everything in digital format.  We knew what we were getting, what the timeline was, and exactly how much it would cost.  This was a unique job as the house had 2 layers of cedar shake and was absolutely in terrible condition.  It was a lot of labor to just remove the layers and prep the roof.  I appreciated how many people Alta sent for the job and how they cleaned up at the end of each day.  During the removal of the old roof, massive number of nails flew off and they raked them all and even checked the neighbors houses to make sure it was clean.  Most importantly, the new roof looks great and we havent had any issues even with a few storms that came in.  We are very pleased and appreciate the professionalism and their adherence to the timeline.

Wright At Home Services Inc
Recent Review: Everything went pretty well. I was pleased with their work. We had a leak around our chimney afterwards, which caused some damage to our ceiling, and they followed up and repaired the leak as well as providing material to fix the ceiling in addition to a several hundred dollars back. They gave us an estimate for the labor only, which was a slightly unusual situation for them, and they did what they said they would do and got it done quickly.

Sierra Pacific Roofing
Recent Review: We found this company by accident while researching roofing materials. We chose installer based on material he was using, installation procedure and his professional interaction with us. Would recommend to anyone considering installing a metal roof. Competitive price, professional service. Our new roof looks great! BTW, we have experienced several severe rainstorms since installation of our new roof and 1) it is not noisy and 2) does not leak.

Modern Roofing Inc
Recent Review: After getting multiple bids on the new roofing job we contracted with Modern Roofing. Orville Witt was the Project Manager. He and his crew did an excellent job. They were right to their original schedule, even though I caused some extra work that needed to be done. The quality of workmanship and the crews courteousness was very much appreciated. They cleaned up every day before leaving and were very pleasant to have around. I would recommend Modern Roofing to anyone needing a new roof.

Century did an outstanding job. They were punctual and completed the job as stated in the bid. The representative was responsive to my questions. The final price matched what was quoted in the bid. They did a quality job installing the products we chose. Clean up was thorough and the debris was promptly removed once the job was completed. I would hire them again.

ACosmos Roofing
Cosmos did an outstanding job installing a new shake roof on our craftsman home. The cedar shake could not be more beautiful, and the quality of the workmanship is superb. Nor was it an easy job: Our entire 3600-square-foot roof has a relatively steep 33 degree pitch; the job was done during the winter, when frost made access more difficult; and the work had to be coordinated around installation of new solar panels. Everything was done professionally and courteously, and clean-up was never an issue. The 20-year guarantee is unmatched by any other roofer we contacted, and we could not have gotten a better value for the money. Highly recommend!

Bob came as scheduled; called before he arrived.  Really nice guy!  He patched the leak that concerned me and did not charge me because it was a small leak, and he said he could not be sure he found the right spot.    I have a cedar shake roof which he said is not his area of expertise so he suggested I call a shake expert to have the roof cleaned. Great guy;  super service;  so honest!

We found Mr. Caldwell to be professional, prompt, honest and courteous. He replaced 1/2 of our roof. Several layers of shingles, down to the original 1912 cedar shakes had to be removed. His crew worked quickly and the process was mostly painless save for the unavoidable noise. I highly recommend his services.
