Recent Review: The crew worked hard every day, cleaned up every evening before they left, and did quality, professional work. The crew was friendly and courteous to a man, even the youngest guys, and the music was never played loud enough to disturb me or the neighbors. I was home much of the time, and can honestly say that this crew worked hard and kept at it, from 7 am until 4, 5, sometimes 6 at night. They spent nine days at our house and despite the noise and the mess, which they cleaned up every day before they left, we were a little sad to see them go. Several members of the crew, including Ricky, who was a calm confident leader who made sure "the homeowners" were always happy, safe, and kept well informed of progress and challenges they encountered, had been with Van Derhoof for years, and it showed. Ricky and Andy Baron, the roving supervisor who checked in with Ricky and me regularly, knew that the right way to do things was the only way to do them, and that this was the Van Derhoof way. They were and I hope still are great representatives of the company. Right from the get go I was impressed with the professionalism of the Van Derhoof staff, from Jack Everett, who sold us the roof and laid out specifically what we were paying for, to Ricky, Andy, and the other members of the roofing crew, who obviously took pride in their work and in doing a job right. They did their best not to damage my wife's extensive gardens, and aside from a stepped-on plant here and there, tore off and put on a roof on a house in an urban setting with very tight property lines. Even though the final cost came in at about $3,500 over the initial estimate, I am glad I hired Van Derhoof for the job. The work was done right, the additional costs seemed reasonable and were well explained by Andy -- I approved them as we went along, so while I may have winced a bit when it came time to pay the bill, there were no surprises. Communication between Ricky and Andy and my wife and myself was excellent. I recommended Van Derhoof and this crew in particular to a friend and neighbor, and he and his wife have hired them to do their roof this summer. I was similarly impressed with the company's gutter crew, who took the time, along with Jack Everett, to help me decide on the best gutter solution for our house and property. Now I know why Van Derhoof has been in business for 75 years. If you need a roof and you live in the Syracuse area, I recommend you give them a call. Oh, and the only reason I gave them a B on price is because I would rather have paid less. Still, their original estimate was several thousands less than two other local roofers who submitted bids. I'm glad I chose Van Derhoof.
