Description

Newton Roofing Residential was founded on two principles, treat our customers with respect and stand behind our work, and continues to function under those ideals; installing exceptional quality roofing systems at a competitive price. Our customer base grows daily due to our untiring commitment to quality, honesty and respect. This has allowed us to work with homeowners from Waterville Valley, NH, to Nantucket, and out to the Worcester Hills. We may have started with our eye on Newton, but we have truly become your go-to roofer for all of Eastern MA, RI, and Southern NH.

I highly recommend Newton Roofing Residential. In 2014, they replaced the entire roof on my home with high quality materials, in a safe and timely manner, and at a very competitive price. In 2020, I decided to address another need - my aging second floor porch, which serves as a roof to the first floor porch below. It was becoming increasingly unsafe due to wood rot, with a soft floor and loose ra...

I found Newton Roofing on a local list serve without knowing them at all. Recent wind storms created a lot of damage and I knew it was time to get a new roof. Tom and Rich returned phone calls immediately and gave me a very fair price. Their workers came quickly and completed the project in a very professional manner. In one full day of work, they were able to take off the old shingles, repair boa...

Excellently - Rich picked up my call right away (after I'd tried calling 3 other businesses) and took details as well as came over to provide an estimate the same day. He emailed an estimate that seemed reasonable which I accepted and told me he could have his folks get it done next day which is exactly what happened. Rich was very careful to match the exact single type/color. I'm extremely happy ...

Rich was very responsive to our request since we had evidence of leaking. He was very thorough and took time to explain the work and the pricing options. His price was competitive with another company but because of Rich's customer service we went with Newton Roofing Residential. The company took care of the city permit, had the dumpster onsite early in the morning, crew was there early and worked...

"Newton Roofing" had done work for me 25-30 years ago. I didn't know the name had been changed to "Newton Roofing Residential", and was under new management/ownership.I called and Mr. Melo answered right away. I explained the problem. He personally came to inspect the following day. I had feared a new roof might be needed, but he explained the damage was likely caused by a damaged (perforated) shi...

Newton Roofing responded quickly to my general roof repair request. Rich Mello came out and assessed the situation and suggested both a roof patch repair and/or a partial roof replacement. He was informative and helpful. Not a hard sell at all. Quickly emailed an estimate for both jobs. I thought the price was good on both. I went with the patch repair and a month later it was completed. They even...

I was extremely happy with their work. The background is that I hired another roofer for a whole roof replacement earlier in the year. He is a big name on Angie's List and very well reviewed. He did a good job but told me he didn't know how to fix a section of rubber roof that abutted a wooden gutter that had been covered with metal flashing in the past. He recommended a copper roofer, who never r...

The roof was done last summer and it looks nice but I paid for some additional roofing shingles for a kitchen expansion. The additional shingles were never delivered. I have called several times. I was told that the shingles would be delivered a few weeks ago. Still no shingles. I would like to give a better review but I have found this company difficult to deal with. Newton roofing did drop off t...

It is very true that there was a long delay in getting the client her extra shingles. We have no excuse for the long delay. The shingles were to be furnished for an eventual small addition project. The shingles were in fact delivered yesterday. From all accounts, including the client's, the project was completed on time to the client's satisfaction. A year later, the roof has held up well. It is d...
