Very professional. Used pictures, etc. to help us understand what he was doing. Provided 2-year warranty in writing. Was a bit expensive, but worth it because of the professionalism (& compared to the other people who came for estimates or just disappeared). Always showed up when he said he would and was in constant contact until job was completed.
In our evaluations of area roofing companies, the nonprofit consumer group Washington Consumers’ Checkbook and Checkbook.org found big company-to-company differences in customer satisfaction. In our surveys of area homeowners, several of the companies Checkbook evaluated were rated “superior” overall by 90 percent or more of their surveyed customers. On the other hand, substantial numbers of some outfits’ customers regretted their choices: Several companies received favorable ratings from fewer than half of their surveyed customers.
Though moss is used by some homeowners to add aesthetic appeal to their roofs, it can lead to water leakage. Moss roots can penetrate the shingles, which will result in loss of granules. Granule loss will leave the shingles vulnerable as the protection against water, wind and extreme heat is reduced.
Our metal roofs are wonderful in that they may actually save you money on your homeowner’s insurance and also in energy costs. Metal roofing has high reflectivity which is energy-efficient — it helps insulate your home in colder weather and cool your home in the Texas heat. Metal roofing is also generally made from recycled material, so it has an even further positive impact on the environment!
Of course, excessive walking on the roof is one of the main causes of roof leak. Roofing projects make roofs better but not using roof jacks and ladders can cause the roof to leak due to the pressure of the foot or shoes on the shingles.

• Architectural shingles create a multi-dimensional effect. They feature laminated construction to make your new roof last longer. Traditional, three-tab flat asphalt shingles offer better performance than standard roof shingles.
Vent pipe collars are the sleeves attached to ventilation pipes on the roof. These are also a source of leak since these can be with strong winds and other elements. Spots on the ceiling, near the vent pipe, are an indication that the vent pipe is leaking. Homeowners should call for professional roof leak repair contractors to inspect the area and apply proper repair methods if necessary.
