We had our Hurricane Andrew vintage roof replaced by Earl W. Johnston, Roofing (EWJR), in September of 2014. We got three quotes from three vendors and selected EWJR based on reputation first and price as a secondary consideration. We were not unhappy with our decision. The rip-off and dry-in crew of around eight workers completed the first stage in a single day. We had selected a GAF dimensional roofing system with upgrades that included special starter row strips and extra waterproofing material in the valleys and around vent stacks. We also opted for the GAF Cobra ridge vent system with heavy-duty ridge caps. This latter upgrade allows our under-soffit vents to provide airflow to the high point (ridge) of the roof to lower the roof/attic temperatures and prolong the life of the roof materials. When a minor technical issue arose regarding the procedures (recently modified by Miami-Dade County) for the roof vent system, Earl worked diligently with the GAF engineers for clarification. Earl personally inspected the job (behind the county inspectors) and had corrections made where necessary. I felt that the personal attention and responsiveness shown by the company owner and all contacts with his office staff, sales representative, and workers on the job were illustrative of a dedication and work ethic seldom seen in the construction trades. Another vendor salesman was in our home when Earl came by and, based on our conversation and exchange, that salesman was impressed and asked for Earl?s business card. After the final county inspection the contractor had a person come by to do a final clean up of stray tin caps and nails that may have been missed by the initial crew. That person also went on the roof and painted all of the newly installed stacks and vents to match the roof. This last step isn't always completed by roofers as evidenced by other installations in my neighborhood. I also had a brief conversation with a county roofing inspector who commented on the quality of this installation saying that he too was impressed. In my sixty plus years, I have hired three roofers. My first experience was a horror story, my second was satisfactory, and this one was outstanding.
