We were surprised to find out that we needed a complete roof replacement. E.J. and his team worked so hard everyday and even gave us a credit for plywood that wasn’t used. I never thought a roof could be so beautiful!

EJ and his team did an excellent job on our roof. He is very busy but worth the wait as EJ took the time once here to ensure the job was completed correctly. As mentioned in his description of services, EJ also corrected problems in the original roof design, such as ensuring air flow in soffit vents and correcting flashing problems.

EJ Purcell did a fantastic job! He listened to our concerns and patiently answered all questions. We received 3 quotes from different contractors and EJ's price was very fair.

EJ was very responsive. He arrived the day after I called him and gave me a quote. Initially, he planned on coming back to complete the job the following day, but he looked at the forecast and it called for a significant amount of rain the following two days. So he ran out to buy the replacement shingles and returned by late afternoon to do the job. He had finished the job by 8:30 in the evening. ...

Some shingles came off in a wind storm this spring. EJ replaced the shingles.

American Roofing & General Contractors was professional from the beginning. We felt we had all the knowledge to make an informed decision and the owner was involved in every step of the process. It is obvious that he is an expert and knows everything there is to know about roofing. We've since recommended them to friends and family and they've all been more than satisfied.
