The service was for recovering a roof with twenty-four year 3 tab shingles, repair work to the porch due to past roof leakage (ceiling to soffitt), tear off and reroof porch with rubber, two turbines installed and two sheets of plywood replaced on porch and painting of them to match current paint job. There was a five year warranty included with this service. The cost of recovering the roof was 825.00, the porch repair was 200.00, the tear off and reroof of porch was 200. The turbine installation was 68.41, the two sheets of plywood were 39.46. Materials cost 2109.88.

Review of Service

The quality of the service was good. The work was done quickly and the clean up was thorough. There were some problems with the porch area after the work was completed, and we have had to have the roofer come back out twice to fix these problems. There hasn't been a problem getting him to come out, though. We had one pack of shingles left over that we kept in case they were needed for any future repairs.


We obtained quotes from three different service providers, and found that a local roofer was the best deal for our money. The best advice I have is that it is important to get several quotes, and to also check references on anyone you are considering choosing. We asked that the roofer provide us with three references, and we called all of them for details regarding previous work done by the roofer and any issues there may have been.
