Description

Richard Farina started this roofing company in 1984 in Arlington, MA. Since that time it has grown in size but Farina Roofing is still a family-owned business, and Richard continues to provide experienced leadership. Our goal is to provide rapid response, timely assistance, and complete information about your roof problems. Finding and correcting "problem leaks" is our specialty and all of our work is guaranteed to perform as promised, in writing. If you need a new roof we will provide a free estimate with the entire job clearly outlined, point-by-point. References and Letters of Appreciation can also be provided from recent jobs we have done in your town or neighborhood. Our crews work quickly, and will leave the area neat and clean upon completion. Very often, we are contacted by a disappointed customer who wants to hire us to correct and repair the roof, or to re-roof the entire building that was recently done by another, less reputable roofer. Don't let that be you. The best price is only the BEST price.if the job is done correctly. 20 employees. No subs. Cost if determined by the job. No travel charges....

I cannot recommend this company. I wasted over 5 weeks trying to get them to fix a simple gutter problem. After one of there guys came out to review my project, I received a quote for 3 options. I chose the most expensive one which including fixing the placement of a 3 foot gutter, improving flashing, replacing damaged clapboards and rotted window sills. After agreeing to go forward, it took a few...

I had an excellent experience with RB Farina's work replacing old wooden gutters and old wooden fascia and soffits with new aluminum gutters and PVC soffit, fascia, and molding on my small house. I must have caught things at a good time, in late winter, because it was just 8 days between my posting my job description on Angies List, and the dumpster leaving my driveway after the work was completed...

Leo and Ricardo showed up to look at the job on time and they were very professional. They evaluated all the troubled spots and took pictures. They provided a comprehensive quote within a day or two complete with the photos they had taken. I had a few questions on the quote which May in the office tried to answer. Once she was unable to answer some of these questions she had Leo and Ricardo call m...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
We had 3 areas of our house that were leaking. The first job involved tearing off of existing shingles and the installing replacement shingles and a pre-painted metal drip edge along entire roofline. An Ice & Water Shield was installed along the entire roof to prevent leakage. The second job involved Copper Flashing and Slates repair around our chimney. A new ice water shield and slates were installed and silicone was applied over new flashing. Missing, cracked and broken slates were replaced. The third job involves welding a cracked gutter.

Fantastic! They called me back the Monday after my Saturday evening call, did an estimate on Tuesday (identified the reason for the leakage and offering two different options – we went for the more complete, ideally longer-lasting one), and squeezed this admittedly small job in between other jobs within a few weeks. We have already recommended them to our neighbors.

Ricardo, the crew leader, is friendly and knowledgeable. He came out to provide an estimate and then supervised the 2-day job. The team was on-time and professional, and they cleaned up thoroughly as well. Their work was immediately followed by several weeks with sustained and heavy rain, and there were no leaks! We were completely satisfied with the entire process: estimate, scheduling, job, clea...

I first called another roofer who never came inside to look at the stains or went up on the roof. That roofer said by visual inspection he could tell I did not need a new roof and his company only dealt with replacements. But, he hazarded a guess at what was wrong and said if anyone actually went up on the roof, it would cost around $800. I then called Farina who scheduled an estimate; they arrive...
