The original roof, wooden shales deteriorated after 15 years. I used the Angie's List app to locate a roofer. Pond roofing responded and provided an estimate. The original roof only consisted of wooden shakes, and did not have roofing plywood or sheeting. I told the estimator I wanted these items with the new roof. Pond roofing provided an estimate and could complete work within two weeks of acceptance. Before the work started, my questions were answered by a very friendly and professional office staff. On the morning the work was to begin, a large truck arrived to off load the roofing supplies. The roofing crew arrived, on time, shortly thereafter. The estimator originally thought the replacement would take a full day to a day and a half. As it turned out, the work required two full days. There were two people the first day, and three for most of the second day. Pond roofing first removed the old roof in its entirety. Then used pressure treated wooden shakes, Winterguard ice & watershield, and felt strips, along with the CDX plywood decking. The resultant roof looked better that the original when new. I was impressed by the amount of work that was required. Placing the shakes was very labor intensive. Each shake had to be cut individually and properly aligned. The work was not only technical but required a designer's eye. I was at first concerned with what I perceived as a somewhat high price. However, after seeing the amount of work that was required, I think the cost was quite reasonable. The crew thoroughly cleaned all debris and left the area in pristine condition.
