AJimmerson Roofing Co
Beautifully. And they cleaned up afterward very well, including all the debris that had filtered into the attic.

AJimmerson Roofing Co
John Jimmerson was extremely professional and the price was about the average of the high and low bids on the work. The work crew was extremely professional and hard working. They completed a complicated roof job in about two days and it looks great. We needed to have the roof done within a short time frame and Jimmerson was able to meet our deadline. The quality of work was very good and the crew did a great job cleaning up after the work was complete.

I would give them the highest marks. The fact that they work year round stands out a lot. I would absolutely use them in the future.

Andy Palmer was one of five people we called for a quote on our roof. Palmer and another well-established company gave detailed quotes. Because the roof project was complicated--and, as always with an house that is old and eccentric, unpredictable--guys from several other roofing companies looked puzzled and went away in search of easier jobs. Andy and the other established roofer gave similar quotes.  (We knew the roof would cost what we consider a huge amount, but the quotes were in the ballpark of what we had anticipated.) Andy's quote was very slightly less, but that did not really figure in our decision. We selected Palmer because of the excellent and detailed sales presentation Andy did, showing photographs of the details of the proposed work on his i-pad.  He showed problem spots on the roof and gave specific and detailed descriptions of the ways he would approach them, the specific materials he would use, the pros and cons of various options, etc.  Andy is very personable and professional--no hard sell, just good information. In addition, he gave us a firm quote, whereas his competition's specified that if they found X or Y, there would be an additional charge.  (It's an old house, of course they will find things they had not anticipated!) In addition, we liked Palmer's terms--25% on signing, 25% as work begins, and 50% on completion. This reinforced our sense of Palmer as a stable and well-run company.  He also gave us a long list of roofs they had done, and drove around and checked out the work, which looked good. My husband is a retired engineer, and both of us are are very interested in the mechanical details; Andy answered the questions to our satisfaction, and gave us confidence that he was a good problem solver, able to come up with solutions when the unplanned appeared. The consistently positive reviews and detailed comments on Angie's list were also crucial to our decision--particularly those of you who mentioned his follow-up, since with our old house, any project requires touching up after the fact.   The crew who worked on our house showed up on time, and was professional and efficient.  There was a minimum of disruption (considering that we had seven or eight people on our roof) and THEY CLEANED UP EVERY NIGHT!!!!  No tripping over piles of singles and rotting board.  The guys were polite and friendly, and worked efficiently. The crew foreman was not on site because he had twin babies the day before the job started.  I was quite concerned about this at the time--though certainly understood why he was not on the job--but the crew seemed very capable, and Andy stopped by often to check on the work, so this did not turn out to be a problem.  I had been concerned about the use of dimensional shingle on the roll at the edge of the roof, but the crew worked this out--after some experimentation.  They completed the main roof in the scheduled 4 or 5 days, even though they had to work around our pest control man when the crew found a huge bee hive in the eaves. Near the end of the main roof job, a sub-contractor--a flat roof specialist--came to work on the back part of the house.  This turned out to be the unanticipated problem area.  Water had been trapped between the previous membrane roof and the decking, so the decking was rotted.  Everything had to be ripped off and replaced.  In addition, the area around the sky light had to be redesigned and rebuilt.    The flat roof then had to be tied into the main roof; he also had to redesign and rebuilt this area. Good problem-solving and carry through.  The previous tie-in--there since we bought the house--was unsightly, and the sub-contractor came up with a much more sanitary and attractive solution. After completion and before final payment, I (fussy, fussy) went around the house with my binoculars, looking at all the rolled edges to make sure that the curve was consistent around the house and the edges were tucked the way I wanted them.  We were in and out of town, so I am not sure of the timing, but one of the guys came around to fix some areas that were not to my high specs.  This was taken care of professionally, and as a matter of course--as the reviews led us to anticipate. The roof looks great--better than it has in the past 30 years.  Andy took some "after" pictures so we know what it looks like on top--it's too steep for us to get up there--so we know what the fixes look like.  We spent a lot of money, and we are satisfied that it was well spent.  I am also confident that if we do encounter a problem, Palmer will make sure it is fixed.  We've worked with many contractors--good, bad and indifferent--and Palmer is definitely the most professional and efficient--Andy shows up when he says he'll show up and delivers what he promises.  The project also caused us the least amount of anxiety and inconvenience of any major project we've undertaken, which is priceless.  I did not have to rearrange my time, check up to see if the work was being done properly, worry about cost beyond the quote, lock up my dog or trip over debris. We would most definitely hire Palmer again.  Highly recommended.

My Roof is approximately 10 years old with architectural shingles and this spring I noticed a leak coming into my attic. I climbed onto the roof and did not see any obvious places where it could be leaking so I left a message with Jimmerson's roofing using Angies list explaining the problem and that their business was recommended by multiple friends. Mr Jimmerson came to the house and went into the attic to see where the roof had been leaking and then went onto the roof to see if he could find the problem. Unfortunately it was a sunny day and he could not find where the leak was coming in at but he did do some caulking while he was up there. So until we get another rain storm we will not know if the caulking fixed the problem. Mr Jimmerson told me to call and let him know if it was still leaking. Very professional, explained what he was doing and what the next step would be if it still leaked.

The five workers were timely, cleaned the area each day, and were polite. They did a very good job for the price, I just wish insurance would have covered 100% instead of 65%.

After a tornado damage my roof I hired Teachout Builders. During first inspection we found that the rafter tails were just box frames and damaged. He worked with the insurance to take care most of the expense and gave us a break on the remaining amount. Very satisfied with their work.

I contacted Palmer roofing after hearing positive feedback from a couple of friends. Andy came to our home within a couple of days, gave us a complete estimate and left samples of shingles. His work crew came to the site and completed the project very quickly and cleaned the site before leaving each evening, including picking up any nails in the landscaping with a special magnetic nail retrieval device. The roof looks beautiful and the price was very fair. We recently had Palmer Roofing repair a leaking valley in our large barn roof. He carefully examined the problem leak, gave us a reasonable estimate and completed the work swiftly and thoroughly. Voila! No more leaky barn roof. Andy and his staff are very respectable and wonderful to work with.

The job was done excellently and ahead of schedule. A crew of men were here for about three hours.. Then two men remained to complete the window job for another two hours.

Very professional, responsive and punctual.  Took pictures of everything and prepared a detailed report.  We live in a 2.5 story house with 12/12 pitched roof so this was not an easy access project.  There was an issue with a shingle coming loose from the ridge vent area where the work was completed.  I did not notice this until several months later but they came out and replaced it free of charge within a week.  We were pleasantly surprised.  We would highly recommend them to anyone with chimney/roof issues.

Recent Review: I hired Lianro back in December of 2000 to replace my old shake shingle roof with a new stone-coated steel one. Their estimate for the work was very reasonable, and they did the whole job in less than a week. I've had zero leaks or problems of any kind since. The material is now 17 years old, and is only showing a little wear around some of the bends where the stone coating has flaked off due to hail, wind, snow, and workmen walking around on it. I am thoroughly pleased with the work that Lianro did and the materials they sell.
