WOW! I am so impressed! I called LaFever Roofing about a new roof. It was a Saturday and they were closed so I left a message letting them know I needed a new roof and wanted them to do it if they could. Monday morning, Terry called and said he was going to be in the area and could stop by. He was there wiin 10 minutes. He climbed up on our roof and measured everything then came down and talked to me and my husband. We were concerned about putting on a new roof this late in the year because of weather issues. Terry reassured us that there was not any problem with weather. So we picked our shingle color and Terry told us he would email me an estimate that afternoon and then contact me when he was ready to do the roof. About 2 weeks later Terry called and said they would be delivering the shingles the next day and they did, bright and early that next morning. A few days later Terry called and said they were ready to lay on the new roof. I couldn't believe they were going to do it as there were major rain showers predicted, but he said not to worry. After all, he said if they couldn't put roofs on in rain then places like Portland and Seattle would never get roofs done. That gave me a tickle as I had never thought about it that way before. The next morning Gabriel and Oscar showed up, in the pouring rain and procedded to go to work on the roof. Those poor guys had rain drizzling down their necks almost the whole time they were here but they still managed to get the whole roof on in about a day and a half. And what a beautiful job it is! Come to find out, the contractor who put on our original roof cut corners by not putting in enough vents and the vents they did install were all cheap plastic ones. In fact we had one break a few years back that caused all kinds of problems. LeFever remedied this error and other issues that came to light. Not only did they replace all the plastic vents with metal ones but they also installed 3 more new vents to bring everything up to spec. I was so pleased that they took the initiative to do this and didn't just stay with what was there. After all, I had no idea how things "were suppose to be". But Terry knew how things were suppose to be done and went ahead and corrected the sub-par original job, no detail was overlooked. I am very, very pleased with that! And what hard working installers! Nothing slowed them down, not even the cold rainy weather. Gabriel and Oscar were very professional and yet friendly, they answered all my stupid questions without laughing or rolling their eyes even once! I have personally been privy to 3 other roofing jobs (by 3 other contractors) in the last 6 months that I now know were not done to the standards that LaFever follows. The prices were all about the same too so I can't blame it on "you get what you pay for". I presumed those jobs were the norm, until I witnessed this job by LaFever. So if you are going to spend the same amount of money, definately go with Lafever. The quality, professionalism and expertise of LaFever have made those other jobs look second-rate. I originally found LaFever on Angies List when my mom needed a new roof and various other things done to a house she just purchased. LaFever was one of 3 contractors we called for estimates. My mom decided to go with another contractor for other reasons personal to her that had nothing to do with LaFever. But I was really impressed with Terry and LaFever so I kept his card because I knew when I was able to do my roof; I wanted only them to do it. So when I got the money this fall, I called LaFever, I didn't even consider anyone else and boy I am so glad! The difference in the quality of work and follow-up is astounding. They even removed the tape strips from the back of the shingles! NONE of the other roofers did that, even the original roofing job on my house didn't remove the tape backing and it has caused us problems in years past. LaFever also filed all the shingle warranty papers and sent me copies along with their own personal installation warranty, very nice! The other 3 jobs didn't do that either. LaFever handled EVERYTHING from start to finish with no hiccups or problems, VERY smooth, neat and tidy and professional. I can't stress enough what a wonderful, stress-free experience this whole thing was. My heartfelt thanks to Terry and the whole LaFever gang!
