Job was completed in just two days in Sept 2017. In Feb 2018 ice damming built up on a low area of the roof that faced north, no sun hits that spot from about Dec to early March. I called JZ and they came out within 24 hours and got the ice off the roof. No charge. I offered them some cash for climbing up on our roof on a bitterly cold day and they politely declined and told us they'd be back by t...

JZ Roofing did an excellent job start to finish. They were very punctual arriving at the time that they stated. Everything went smoothly as they completed the full teardown and replacement of my house roof and garage roof in two days. They were very professional and had great communication in addressing any questions and concerns I had. They also were very thorough in cleaning up all nails and deb...

J Z responded quickly and performed needed services plus some extra work to ensure a quality job. I had written the check for the quoted amount. When asked how I heard about J Z, I mentioned Angie’s List. He reminded me that I got a 10% discount. How honest! I plan to hire them next year for some additional work I want done.

I manage some very old buildings. One of them is in need of a roof replacement soon, but we needed some options before we budget to do so. Peter from JZ was great in fixing things that needed immediate attention, while giving us much needed advise for the future. Whenever we have issues we call on him and he is very eager to help. Prices are very good and attention to detail is even better. I have...

This is a follow up to my initial review of JZ Roofing. This contractor was hired and overpaid by a deceased Angie's List member. I am the deceased executor and beneficiary. I am also a member of Angie's List. JZ Roofing has refused to pay me the refund. In retaliation for my writing a negative review I was threatened with legal action and the overpayment was issued to a debtor without authorizati...

The service went well. Peter came out and inspected both inside the house and up on the roof. He found there were several problems with how the roof was originally built, including areas with no flashing, where shingles were instead bent or curled to try to prevent water leaks. He took several photos to show me how those bent shingles are now cracking in the middle, which is letting water in. He r...

If you cannot do it just tell us so we can find somebody else. One of the worst experience of my life . Who is giving them the good reviews? Makes you wonder about Angie’s l...

They were on time. Took time to explain everything and answer my many questions. They completed the project on time and quicker than I thought. They also took great care to clean up and make sure my neighbors yards were also clean as well. Only thing is that I have not received roofing warranty. However I trust that should I have issue they will take care of it.
