Roofing reviews in Long Pond

  • From START To FINISH EXCEPTIONAL!!! Was very professional, personable and patient. Had a few questions answered without hesitation. Knowledgeable and reasonably PRICED! His staff were efficient, hard working and punctual. Another SATISFIED customer! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
    - Lew W.
  • Excellent. He completed at the price promised. I was not even at house when he did the job. It came out perfect. Cleaned up 100%, roof shingles perfectly straight. Came on time and completed as promised. I would hire for any roofing needs in the Poconos. All the efforts were handled by the owner himself.

  • Business owner, Nick Widdoss, returned my initial call promptly and came over to give me an estimate the same day! While he was here, he gave me a great price, and set my roof in his calendar.
    The following week my roof was torn off and replaced. It looks beautiful!! The crew was professional and gave, in my opinion, a superior clean-up job.
    When the roof was complete, Nick reminded me that they also clean gutters in the fall. I will DEFINITELY be calling them again. Very professional.

  • John and his crew provided excellent service and craftsmanship, we had a new GAF Timberline roof installed and a leak fixed on one of our sliding doors, since the work has been performed the roof does not leak and the sliding door also has been corrected, I would recommend John based on the work he performed, his pricing was very competitive, and John is GAF Master Elite Certified with was a major plus for me using him, so overall I am very satisfied with the scope of work performed.

  • We received a bid after a walk through of the project  for the roof, siding and mud room and deck replacement.  He did make a few comments that would improve the project during the walk through  (replace the single panel basement windows with a insulated double panel windows, and spray foam the basement walls with Bayer spray insulation product).  Should have listened and added the suggestions into the bid.  
         They were able to tear out the original deck that was sinking due to not being on any supporting concrete piers but on bare ground with in a few hours.  They guys were able to quickly pour 4 foot deep footings that the deck would rest on.  The only delay was due to waiting for the concrete piers to cure before placing the support beams for the deck on them.  The mud room was rough framed in and the support frame for the deck was installed quite quickly and then the detail work of installing the composite decking material proceed.  The standard that Jeremy hold his guys to are high and it show in their work.
         The guys that did the roof also did the siding part of the job.  The difficulty of the material that they were  working with  explained for the price of the job (The metal roof was 26 gauge and the siding was 29 gauge which required powered metal cutting tools).  The roof was installed pretty quickly since it required less cutting and fitting of the material.  While Keith Overmyer and his crew were up there they pin pointed out some problems that they observed but would not have any control over due to the need for interior access to the roof which we did not have (The bath room vent was venting through a hose out the soffits vent instead of the roof vent).  The roof work went pretty quickly.  They removed the original roof and tar paper that was originally installed 25 years ago.  Instead of using tar paper a new type of Membrane barrier was used as well as ice and water shield on the edge areas of the roof to prevent ice or water from damming up under the new roof.  The most difficult part of the roof install was when he had to cut into the chimney and insert the flashing material to maintain the water resistance of the roof, and the cap that was required to be placed around the electric utilities pipe that allowed for the electric power to enter the house from the PPE pole.  Keith showed me how it was done and what might have to be done in the future to help maintain the roof.  Keith and his guys even sealed the ends of the roof cap by bending the ends of the caps even thou it was not required.  The roof caps has a filter mateial in it to keep insects and other foreign materials from entering the attic but this extra step would make it highly unlikely that this type of incident would happen.
    The work on the siding Keith Overmyer earned his pay.  The amount of hand fitting that was required was very unexpected.  Each corner required a corner cap as well as every window, door, electrical outlet and exterior light fixture required a custom "J" frame installed.  This frame is to prevent water from infiltrating under the siding.  Prior to even starting installing of the siding they placed a new type of flexible insulation that increased the R-Value by over a R-value of 5.  Which is better than the old closed cell foam type which a 1 inch thick sheet has IIRC about a increase of less than a 3.5 R-value.  The amount of time it took compared to using vinyl siding or T1 panels was about 3 to 4 times longer.  They were not goofing off taking their time it was just more time consuming due to the measuring and cutting using powered cutting tools for each piece of siding that was installed as well as verifying that each piece  was trued correctly.
         Jeremy guys did a great job with replacing the un-insulated single panel windows and sealing the  new insulated double panel  basement window and eliminate  an area that we were having a draft entering the house.  The original builder has installed and interior hollow core un-insulated door that connected our house to an unheated and un-insulated garage.  Replacing that door with a exterior insulated door eliminated a cold spot and will also reduce in the long run our heating bill.   These were additions to the original contract that was pointed out by Jeremy and I should have incorporated them at the time.
         The interior demo and ceiling  was handled by Fred and his crew that did the deck and mud room part.  They uncovered what appeared to be serious water damage to a roof support beam.  We were looking at possible several thousand in additional expense.  After letting the beam dry out and checking the beam for more damage they were able to  determine that it was not necessary and would not be a risk factor.  They were not looking to create extra work for them selves and un-necessary expense for the home owner.
         I was preparing to treat the cement block walls with  muric acid to remove the salt that was leaching thru the block walls prior to treating sealing the walls with Dry-lock cement paint, when Jeremy and Matt Bauman came to check with me on how the project was going.  Matt suggested that instead of using Dry-lock which was rated for 10 years but with the presence of the effervescence (salt leaching) the Dry-lock could peel off in short order and would have to be retreated after using muric acid to remove the salt first again.   The Dry-Lock paint by its self ran over $375.00 not considering the time it would have taken to paint 2 coats on the wall.  Instead Matt suggested the usage of closed cell Spray foam that not only prevent water infiltration thur the cement block walls but also provide an increased insulation value to the house.  The real reason that I had not considered prior to having this done earlier was that several year earlier this was looked into and the cost at the time was extremely obscene at the time.  The price I was quoted was quite reasonable and Matt helped fill out the paperwork with PP&E to receive a rebate that covered about a 1/4 of the cost of the spray foam insulation.  In the long run the savings in decreased of heating cost as well as not needing to run a dehumidify to keep the humidity level low will offset the cost of the Spray foam treatment.  The guys were there before lunch and were done by dinner time.  The temp has remained pretty constant and the humidity level has remained low as well in the basement in the two months since it has been done.
         I only rated Burke construction a "B" for cost and it was because he was not the cheapest nor was he the most expensive bid that I received.  He was in between, but you get what you pay for.   The quality and the professionalism that he displayed in his work was money well spent.  There was no surprise in his bid or sudden cost over-runs in this project.  The firm seems like a small family owned business but is actually a well run and managed company capable that is handling large commercial projects in the East Stroudsburg area (I visited  one of the commercial job site to see the quality of  work that they were doing).
         I have a rear deck that we will have done later this year.  We had removed the original rear deck due to it sinking and becoming unstable. We discovered that it was not supported by any concrete piers but resting on bare ground.  Burke Constructions is the 
    leading choice to complete this project for us,

  • John come out to our house on a Saturday and spent plenty of time teaching and explaining his service. He is very knowledgable, well spoken, and if you can believe it, passionate about his work. He gave us a verbal quote range while at the house and then e-mailed a firm quote shortly after. The e-mail quote was actually lower than his verbal range and we were very pleased. We had 3 other quotes, and his was in the lower range. We hired him and sent a deposit. We were away when he was supposed to do the work and due to weather restrictions he did not start when expected. A few days after he was supposed to have done the roof we recieved a phone call while on vacation and he apologized, but had noticed that his quote was too low. This was pretty upsetting to us as we thought that the roof was done, the price was set, and we were with our kids in a museum out of state and having this conversation. We really feel like it was an honest mistake and he did accept some of the responsibility in renegotiating the price. The roof and chimney cap are great and we would recommend using him. He cleaned up, he called to check on how we liked it, he sent pictures and helped with finding a gutter specialist. He's a friendly, nice person to do business with.

  • We called and got a quick response from Mr. Mahon; quote was less then we expected. Skylights were ordered right away, and job was completed within a few days. They were professional and efficient. We haven't had a problem since.
    - Eileen A.
  • It was lousy. I gave him half the money down when we signed the contract Sep.18 2008, I had to keep calling him because he wasn't showing up. He gave me nothing but excuses and lies, such as, they did not deliver the material to my office, why would you have it delivered there anyway to bring all that material here. This went on and on. He finally came and did half the roof and left the other half until I told him I was getting a different contractor. He showed up on Oct. 4th and finished it. I got a leak after the snow started to melt and called him back on several occasions and he didn't show up. I filed a complaint with the Better Business Bureau and he didn't respond to them. I am going to consult an attorney, because I had called three roofing companies to see if the could fix it. They all said the work on the whole roof was so bad you need a new roof.

  • Very attentive, I called just before the beginning of winter, they tried to squeeze me in prior to the first snow but mother nature had different plans. But the first semi warm day in March my roof was up. NO MORE LEAKS...lol. Thanks, Brian.
