Recent Review: THE BEST GROUP I HAVE EVER DEALT WITH!!! I do not usually write reviews, but this Shamrock Contracting (Tom Patrick) was my best home repair and improvement experience I have ever had. Tom showed up the same day to evaluate and estimate my needs. He was extremely knowledgeable, and explained everything clearly. I had quite a few estimates from other companies and they just wanted to sell me a new roof without details and without addressing my other concerns. Shamrock Contracting was also able to produce proof of insurance and has been licensed for 20 years. I checked, and there are no complaints against them - which is rare. Unlike the other companies that could not even provide proof of insurance in many cases. Shamrock Contracting came into my life. We set up a day that worked with my schedule "Punctual Tom" showed up at 7AM as requested by me and after showing him around my home and discussing all my needs, not just my roof; he went to his van, made some calls, used his calculator and came back with a full plan. Tom was so professional and discussed every scenario so there were no hidden costs at the end of the job. His cost was very reasonable and worth every penny. I did do more than the roof. Thanks to this companies expertise, things were done right So fast and efficient. The job consisted of ice shielding / 12 feet up from the corner of the gutter to insure no leaks. It was then tested. Two new skylights were installed beautifully. My chimney was copper-flashed and the brick-pointing was done neat and professional. I also have a smaller flat roof in back that has leaked for 10 years and no-one could ever fix. Tom fixed it. It has since snowed, rained, HIGH winds, and it is still great! Then the main roof was fully replaced with a beautiful shingle that matched the sample. Tom Patrick came with their own dump truck (which the other companies tried to surprise me with additional cost) This was seamless. They worked so quickly and neat. Everything was done in less than a week. I highly recommend them. Speak to Tom directly. My neighbor has now used them as well and bought me a bottle of wine to thank me!

Recent Review: We recently had a full roof replacement and I must admit that the whole True Blue team from ownership through their professional installers were excellent. There was never a time that I felt that I wasn't their priority in providing quality service and workmanship. Our 65 year old home presented some unique challenges and the whole True Blue team were meticulous in preserving the look and feel of our style of home. We still are getting complements from friends and neighbors about our new roof. I certainly would recommend True Blue for the services that they provide. Professionalism, quality of workmanship, integrity and accountability.........these are all qualities of a successful company. Thank you.

It went perfect, they are great. I'm a fan of theirs on Facebook, they are terrific. Very professional, the roof is different from anyone else on the block which is a nice thing. We were looking for a metal roof and they came in with the best price and very professional workers. A really quality product.

AGlobal Home Improvement
After an exhaustive search for a company to put a new metal roof on our home we finally found Global Home Improvement. If you are in the market for a new roof I would strongly recommend going with a metal roof and would let no other company than Global do it. Don't even bother checking out the competition. I've already done that! Global gives you the highest quality product for the best value. One call brought the owner (Paul) to our home. Paul was not pushy at all. I liked that Global works with a financing company that offers very competitive financing for your project. The job began, and was finished on time. The craftsmen who completed the work were very knowledgeable and professional. I am beyond happy with Global Home Improvements and our new metal roof.

I don’t normally write reviews because most bad experiences I’ve had were due to mis-communication or basically honest errors however this roofing contractor knew from the moment we signed the contract that he had no intention of following through with the agreement. My contract states that I would give half the money down to purchase materials and the balance due upon completion. I gave him the first ½ required and then little by little I was given every excuse imaginable why he couldn’t start the job, why he didn’t feel he needed to do all the work he promised he would do and so on. I tried very hard to deal with his stories while still trying to get at least the amount of work out of him that I had paid for. He guaranteed me he had his own workers to complete the job and that was not true, he subcontracted out the job. He said he was purchasing Gaco roofing that gave me a 30 year warranty when purchased from the manufacturer. He ended up NOT purchasing it from the manufacturer but from other contractors who had extra left over from their jobs, thus negating my manufacturer’s warranty. He claimed he power-washed, scraped and primed the roof and I have since had to pay a new roofing company to analyze the part of the roof he claimed to be completed to find out that none of that was done. in actuality, he rolled the Gaco roofing product right over dirt and grime and rust. I have 2 new leaks where I never had leaks before. His subcontractors are angry with him because he did not pay them and have since pulled all their equipment down and no one has been back on the job or in contact with me. He has taken my money and left my roof in worse condition than before he started. My attorney has sent a letter to return my full payment and I have filed with the courts, placing a judgment against him. I am doing this to prevent him from STEALING anyone else’s money. I would not contract with anyone from W.W. Roofing, Roof Magnificent, Waterwitch roofing, Frank Mauro Construction, Supreme Class Roofing and 69 Waterwitch Roofing. As you can see he apparently keeps opening up under new business names, but they are all located at 69 Waterwitch Avenue, Highlands, NJ. BEWARE OF FRANK MAURO.

Although the metal roof was more expensive, it has a transferable lifetime warranty and it looks beautiful. The crew who did the job definitely knew what they were doing. We were disappointed that the job started 1 month later than it was contracted to begin. During the job, any issues or questions that came up were addressed. Overall we are very pleased with our new roof.

FHIGHWOOD ROOFING CO
Highwood installed the roof on our home with a 30 year warranty. Only, when it came time for them to honor that warranty, six months worth of phone calls went unreturned. Only once we left a voicemail message about a new roofing job did we miraculously hear from them. And just like that, once the woman on the phone learned this was a warranty repair and not a lucrative new roofing gig, she told us that someone else who "handled repairs" would get back to us in 24 hours. That was 4 days ago. We're done waiting. You should be too. DO NOT HIRE.

This project involved installing standing-seam metal roofing on an old house that has several little side roofs. One of the side roofs is flat and required a custom-made copper roof. Xterior Solutions performed almost all aspects of the job excellently. They repeatedly postponed starting the job for several months, but once the work began, the crew worked efficiently and carefully. About six men worked all day every day and finished in seven days. The foreman paid attention to all my concerns and addressed them. The workers were courteous and cleaned up the site. Jason, the owner of Xterior Solutions, and his staff were responsive whenever needed. I was worried about the siding, which is made of cedar clapboards. Installing the roof required removing sections of siding and then replacing them. Jason had told me that his company didn't normally deal with clapboard siding. So I wondered whether they would handle it properly. In the end, he sent a skilled carpenter who reinstalled the wood siding properly. Same story with the custom-made copper roof. This roof had to be tied into the walls at a corner -- not an easy task. Nevertheless, the installer did a fine job. Here is what sets Xterior Solutions apart as an excellent company. Some contractors will promise anything to get a job and then mess up the hard parts. But I got the sense that Jason is committed to doing a great job even on tough details that eat up time and money. Xterior Solutions’ pricing was in the middle of the bids I received and seemed fair. My only complaint involves the manufacturer’s warranty on the metal panels. Xterior Solutions said nothing about it. I contacted the manufacturer (ABC) and reached a sales manager who said that in case of a warranty claim, I only needed to cite the order number for the original sale from ABC to the contractor’s lumberyard. But there was no way for me to obtain this number: the lumberyard wouldn’t give it to me, and Xterior Solutions had different numbers. Finally the ABC sales manager looked it up for me. I think that when a job is finished Xterior Solutions should get this number and give it to the homeowner with guidance on the warranty.

AGeorge J Keller & Sons LLC
George J. Keller is a very professional company that stands by its work. We had leak the day we took over our new home. They sent someone out very quickly and did a repair to stop the leak. We later used them to install a new roof. They did a great job with the installation and all the trim work. They stand by their work making a small adjustment when needed and inspecting the roof for a leak that turned out to be masonry.

No job is without its problems, but whatever problems arose, they were prompt and took care of it right away. They kept working until the job was done to our complete satisfaction. Our roof is a beautiful addition to our house. The workers were polite and professional. They cleaned up everything when they were done.
