Recent Review: Very well. The roof looks great and performed great until about a year later. A small leak appeared at the skylight. He came and not only resealed between the skylight and the shingles, he also put new sealant on the skylight itself, though he had no obligation to do that. It's been perfect ever since.

Recent Review: Called them last night - they were here by 8:15 this morning and on the roof before I could answer the door. Jimmy explained what and where the shingles came off - and how they were replacing them to insure it wouldn't happen again. Also found out that they do all kinds of home improvements (they sub-contract out plumbing and electric). Have other things I am going to contact them for. I couldn't ask for better service.

Recent Review: Ron Jones came to do the estimate when he said he would, returned every phone call, brought the proposal exactly when he said he would, and came to do the job promptly. He kept his word! He had a good system for keeping the old roofing mess contained, and his workers picked up around the house despite some nuisance juniper bushes. The job was completed in three days (if that), and best of all the roof has done a perfect job of keeping out every bit of moisture--a huge relief during the rains this past year as well as all the snow. This was the first winter we didn't get huge icicles hanging off the eaves troughs! And, too, the roof looks great; Ron Jones was very patient with us early on in the process when we debated over colors and roof shingle companies. In our case he did excellent work at the most reasonable price. When he left, he said that he'd come back "anytime" to fix whatever might need fixing on the roof should there be a problem. He kept his word on that, too, returning to fix a tiny problem with one of the gutters. He's honest and trustworthy and a great roofer. If we had another roof to fix, we'd hire him in a minute.

Recent Review: He came in a timely manner and performed original roof replacement as expected, but needed to return to replace facia for A-frame front of roof. He gave a highly professional presentation of options, costs, materials and nature of service. The workers cleaned the property during and after the work. One dip in the roof could (possibly) have been repaired differently. Work is guaranteed.

Recent Review: A    Very pleased with work done. They were quick to come out to scope out job, and had a detailed proposal withing a week or so. unt of water to come though roof and discolored a smsll patch in ceiling which they repainted immediatelyBecause they are a sought after company they let me know it would be 2-3 months before they could do the roof work and that weather would be a factor in scheduling as rain delays them which it did that summer.Once they started they had a large group who worked steadily and competently to get it done. they also kept the work site clean and organized within reason for the nature of work involved tearing old shingles off which can make a mess. Had to do some carpentry work on siding and fixing some poor slopes for drainage from snow buildup whcih they took time doing it right to correct past problems for future. They assigned a large work force to do the work and kept at it for 3-4 days starting early and working late to get it done. had a heavy rain storm come though during job which allowed a minor amount of water to come though the roof in spite of tarps placed over roof which created a small discolored patch in kitchen ceiling. They repainted this immediately the next day after it dried out. I would recommend this company to others based on reasonable price for work and excellent quality of workmanship

Recent Review: Estimated time for project was one week. Actual time was 8 working days. Company used young inexperienced labor, resulting in damage to my home from falling shingles (old) during tear-off, torn window screens (6) and debris left on the ground. After my complaint on day 1, he nailed large blue tarps up (left the nails in). The work seems to have been done correctly (only time will tell?). However, expect to perform your own final clean-up and picking up of many (30+) nails.

Everything he said he would do he did.  When the job would start ,How quick it would be done.  That he would put a large crew on just to make sure everything would be done in one day because of the possibility  of  in-climate weather.  .He was punctual as to the time he was  coming to size up the job and give me a price. He explained in detail why he was going to be higher for the job then a previous roofers price as he was going to add additional things such as a way to stop ice buildup He accepted VISA which is important to me as it gives me travel points (and now that I am disabled the only way to earn vacations) as well as an additional 20 days before I had to come up with the cash to pay it off..Not only would I hire him again I would recommend him for others. As a  previous owner of a business it was very important to me to keep my word and that as far as I was concerned while I had to make a profit but I never did it off the back of one customer . I believe he acts the same way.    it was important to me that I kept my word and that as far as I was concerned the expression the customer was always right not just a saying  but the axiom of how to run a business. He obliviously feels the same way.

I am writing this review after originally giving Jimmy a very positive review. Unfortunately, about one month after installing my roof I noticed the shingles were bent and raised up off the roof. It did not look good or new.  My inspector came to look at the roof and noticed some faults in the construction of the roof.  Jimmy himself agreed that it did not look right but he was unsure as to why. After much talking he denied that he did anything wrong and said the roof looked as good as it could look and it wasn't leaking.  And if there was ever a problem he would come back and fix it.  Now, I do believe he would honor his warranty (that I have no doubt).  The problem is the roof was not leaking when he tore it apart and built me a new one either so that should not be the threshold for whether or not he did a good job. He went on to give me 5 different reasons for why the roof shingles were rising and falling and bending week by week.  The biggest one was this was an old house and this is the best it could look. And the heat from the sun would eventually "settle the roof".  None of these concerns were brought to my attention before the job started. In short shingles should not rise and fall on the roof and shingles on a BRAND NEW roof should lay flat.  These two facts are indisputable.  My inspector told me over time the shingles will crack from the movement and never last the 30 years Jimmy promised me.   Until the roof is fixed property I need to leave my low rating. UPDATE:  When the summer months came the roof finally settled as Jimmy predicted it would.  Everything looks fine now and I have upgraded my rating to a B.  It took longer than I expected but I was in constant contact with Jimmy the entire time.
