Recent Review: For years we had postponed the hassle and cost of replacing the aging (and oft-leaking) tile roof on our single-family home, but this year we decided, not without some trepidation, that it was finally time. Affordable Roofing was one of several providers from which we obtained quotes (all of which were very highly rated on Angie's List, or we wouldn't have considered them in the first place), and while all of these companies were as professional and courteous as one would expect from an Angie's List award winner, none of them could match the complete package of expertise, selection, service and value which Affordable brought to the table. Throughout the quoting process Affordable was represented by Mr. Brett Bischof, a consummate professional whom we met when he came to our house to introduce himself and the product lines and services offered by Affordable. (Affordable carries the full lines of what my own research had suggested are the two largest and highest-quality roofing material manufacturers in the country, with the best product guarantees, as well.) After a brief introduction and review of options, Mr. Bischof ascended the roof to take measurements in order to be able to give an accurate quote. He then returned to give us a chance to ask any questions (we'd been perusing the brochures he'd left with us in the meantime), and we took him at his word when he said he'd be happy to answer as many questions as we might have -- and we did have a barrel full of questions, despite having already been through the quoting process with a couple of other roofers. Whether he expected such a litany of questions or not, he never let on otherwise, but gave patient and thorough answers throughout, and sometimes more than once (for example, when we didn't understand one of the finer points of roofing technology, warranties, or compatible option combinations). Though we were impressed with Mr. Bischof and with Affordable's warranties and service record, we weren't about to rush into such a big-ticket purchase. Over the course of the next several weeks we placed a number of follow-up calls to Mr. Bischof (as well as to a couple of his competitors) for verification or clarification of details on materials, warranties, options and pricing, and he continued to surpass with his technical and industry knowledge and his easy but polite and focused manner. When the time came for the final decision, not only did Affordable offer the best deal in terms of price and value, but we simply had no qualms about Affordable (while others left us with a small doubt here or there), and our general impression was that Affordable would go the final yard, when others might not. As it turned out, our confidence in Affordable and Mr. Bischof was never let down in the doing. They came to do the job during the dates they said they would come; they arrived to the house when they said they'd be here; they took all the care they had promised to protect our property and our pets and (most importantly) our selves during the inherently dangerous process of removing the existing roof; and they cleaned up as they'd promised at the end of each day (including sweeping up and using a magnet to pick up the many nails which inevitably fall about during the demolition phase). Their team was polite and courteous and focused on their job, and at the start of each day one or two of the supervisors introduced themselves, let us know of their goals for the day and expected progress, and encouraged us to approach them at any time with any questions or concerns. They finished the job on time and cleaned our lanai, driveway, landscaping and gutters (including a final pass with the magnet for any stray nails), so that the next day you would never have known they'd been there. The first-class service continued even after the job had been effectively completed, with calls from Affordable to let us know the expected time-frame for the county inspector to come to make the final sign-off on the permit, as well as to let us know when to expect the visit from the shingle manufacturer, who would inspect for quality of installation in order to make the warranty official. Finally, a few weeks after the job we noticed the kind of pleasant surprise one doesn't expect from any service provider these days: free of charge, Affordable had replaced some rotted boards near the soffits at one corner of our house (under the eaves so not part of the roof replacement process); I'd mentioned them only off-hand and in passing (asking whether they might have rotted as a result of a previous roof leak near that spot), and never with any expectation that Affordable would replace them (gratis or otherwise). Surprises like that never go out of style. We wholeheartedly and enthusiastically recommend Affordable Roofing, without reservation, and give them our highest rating.
