Reviews for Boston for Shake Roof Repair

Neponset Valley Construction
The project went smoothly, and everything from the materials selected and the quality of the workmanship appear excellent. The crew cleaned up thoroughly and Brian the owner came by personally to check on the progress of the job.

RJ Talbot Roofing & Contracting Inc
We solicited a number of quotes from several companies and selected Talbot based on their commercial roof background. Some of the other quotes were from residential roofers that just didn't seem as professional. In addition, we wanted to use a cedar replacement composite material (Enviroshake) for its 50 year warranty instead of natural cedar where we would be lucky to get 15 years life. We were very pleased with our choice. Once the work was started (it was delayed about a week due to inclement weather), they stayed on task until the job was done (about one week, working over the weekend). The crew was professional and scheduled the roof tear off in sections so the plywood decking was never exposed to the elements. In addition, when rain was forecast for the next day, one workman repaired a section of the old roof to prevent any leaks even though they wound up stripping off those shakes the next day after the rain -- a little extra attention to customer service that wasn't expected. The new roof weathers nicely and as an added benefit sheds snow very easily, reducing ice dam formation. In short, we had a very good experience with Talbot and recommend them without reservation.

Winter Hill General Contractors
Cedar shake siding part was OK on the bid but tried to sell me a roofing job which wasn't needed. In their email "I always tell my costumers that the time to replace the roof is when it's leaking or when they don't like the looking. If it is not leaking don't replace it. Your case is different. You are getting a good deal combining siding and Roof. That's why I think you should replace it. You would end up replacing it within a few years anyways. It's all about cost-benefit. I think I provided you a good deal". The good deal was $300 off a $20,000 job. No way.

Morgan Halperin Home Improvement
Dave and Marshall's professionalism and workmanship exceeded any expectations that we had for our garage. The garage was basically a tar paper shack and now is a beautiful addition to our property, complementing the Cape Cod style look of our South Shore neighborhood. What was once an eyesore is now a focal point of our yard. Dave and Marshall work well as a team and are extremely detail oriented. Although based in Watertown, they ventured down to Plymouth for this job (never once mentioning the presumed horrendous traffic). I would recommend their services to anyone that needs home improvement work done. In addition to being superb workmen, their easy going, humorous and gracious personalities offset any awkwardness that a homeowner may feel for having strangers around their home.

Vista Home Improvement
I had 2 major jobs done by Vista with mixed results: 1) In early 2015, we sat down with Brian (the owner) and he gave us an estimate on replacing the roof and repairing portions of the cedar shakes on our house that had rotted. The estimate included removing our gutters and then putting the same gutters back up. It also included repairing the frame of an attic window that had started to rot and adding baffles to the attic for venting. The roofing was done in March 2015 and went relatively well other than the fact that the crew chief had forgotten his cell phone and didn't have the contract on him. He pulled down the front gutters and, rather than saving them to put them back up, he trashed them in the dumpster. A different crew came several days later to do the window, shakes, and baffles. Dave, the chief of this second crew, was short baffles and had to go out and find some more even though photos were taken of the attic prior to the job for just this reason. The shakes were done, but one section near the gutters looked awful. I had to call and complain, and the shakes were fixed during the second major job below. Finally, Dave came a different day to replace the gutters that had been thrown out. It quickly became very clear that the crew does not communicate well with whoever it is that draws up the contract/estimate and whatever was discussed during the estimate process is not well communicated to the crew. Lots of back and forth phone calls to get things right. In the end, though, Vista replaced the old gutters with new gutters for free since trashing them was their fault. They also found a replacement attic window for me for free. The roof / gutter / window job ended up lasting for close to a month, and the dumpster was in our driveway for this entire time. Dave was a very friendly crew chief and kept us informed as best he could, but he would have left the cedar shake repair in a condition that was not acceptable. Once we complained and sent pictures, a plan was put in place to fix this. So, the communication was pretty bad, and there were some decent-sized hiccups, but Vista worked hard to make things right in the long-run, and I feel like I got a good deal for (ultimately) pretty good quality. Tough to say whether I would hire them again -- they need to fix this communication issue so jobs go more smoothly. This work cost about $11,000. 2) The second major job was in June 2015, where Vista replaced an entire wall of cedar shakes. This time, Gladimir was the chief and he seemed to be the shake expert. He did a great job and repaired the spots near the gutter where the previous work had been sub-par. We supplied the shakes and painted them before Gladimir and his helper installed them. We were very happy with this job. This work cost about $1300.

On Top Roofing
Tim Wormer, On Top Roofing?professional, on time with estimates, follow up meetings, work is thorough, reasonably priced and easy to deal with. We decided in late fall to replace a shake roof. Tim provided a rapid quote, brochures, subsequent shingle samples, and discussed all options, noting that he could begin shortly after Thanksgiving. We decided on a thicker shingle to provide a more shake like appearance and also to replace a skylight. With weather permitting his crew completed the project in two long days, with another partial day to complete the chimney, some minor items and clean up. Crews were professional and polite. We had a slight snow, and then the roof was clear, and I noted that there minor debris and coloring on the roof. Called Tim and the next day he sent a crew over to brush off the roof and take another magnetic sweep on the driveway to double sweep for nails. After that there still appeared to be stains, (from chimney dust). Tim said that should wash off, but since he was going to send a crew back in the spring to detail the yard, as with the winter and snow there might be debris that they hadn?t cleaned, he would also address any coloration issues. The good news is that we had a good rain, and the stain washed away. When I told him, although he was already paid for the job, he repeated his plan to have crew back in the spring to make sure the yard detailing was completed, and double check the chimney dust. Nice to deal with a contractor that wants to insure the customer is totally satisfied with his work. I would definitely recommend Tim Wormer and On Top Roofing.

On Top Roofing
This job went extremely well. Tim Womer (the owner) is a true class act and consummate professional who takes a tremendous amount of pride in his business and workmanship. His crew was great and Tim appeared frequently during the week long job to inspect the work. Our house is 123 years old, and from all estimations, probably had the original cedar shake roof plus 3 additional asphalt layers. His crew stripped all of it, re-decked it with new plywood and laid down a new roof. It was not an easy job. They also arranged a mason to repair our chimney at the same time and they did some additional exterior work while they were there. They even roofed my shed at no extra charge (maybe I shouldn't have mentioned that???) From the very first telephone call and email to Tim, down to the last call, conversation and emails, Tim was courteous, responsive and accommodating. He never seemed like he was in a rush during our on site conversations and always made sure that we were satisfied. I have already referred On Top Roofing to a family member and will continue to send people his way.

Georgoulis Construction Inc
emoved two layers of shingles on gambrel style house and installed new roof with GAF quality materials, installed 4 soffit vents and even did an extra favor of touching up the paint on a few cedar shakes near the roofline! The job was done by a professional team of roofers in one day and all debris was picked up and disposed of. I highly recommend Georgoulis Roofing and construction!
