I called Gottschalk to bid replacing my roof on my home in Park City.  Jim had been there to do emergency repairs once or twice over the years due to storms and was very reasonable then, never charging me an arm and a leg when just a few replaced shingles would get me by.  Because of his professionalism I wanted him to quote replacing the roof when the time came.  I only got two quotes and Gottsha...

Do not trust Gottschalk Brothers Roofing with your home or property or anything else you value for that matter and do not believe a word they say. They refused to remedy anything pertaining to these problems with my roof or anything they were responsible for and did on my property. The way they treated me and behaved is an absolute outrage!

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Long story short, Gottschalk roofing replaced my roof in May of 2012 and within three months it leaked. The longer story is that they were unprofessional to say the least. They were rude, they lied to me and the Better Business Bureau, they did poor work, they left messes all over, they damaged my property and left a gate open that allowed my dogs to get out. After the initial job, I went over a few concerns I had and they dismissed all of my concerns stating that nothing was wrong with the roofing job and they would stand behind their work. I was unable to thoroughly check the roof right away because I had knee surgery. When I did, I found more flaws and poor quality work. I sent Gottschalk Roofing pictures and an email showing these flaws and stating my concerns. There were exposed nails, shingles were not adhered down, there were bubbles and gaps in the torch down roofing areas and gaps along the edge of the roof where rain could go right in. They showed up at my home to "fix" these problems without consulting me first. I had two phone calls from them but did not get them until later that day, after they had already been there and left. So, I was unable to get on the roof with them and show them what needed fixed. After the rude messages, one stating that they "want this out of their hair",  and after checking what they had worked on, i could not trust them again. I again found poor quality work, several messes and a gate was left open where my dogs are kept. The patch jobs looked even worse than before. There was tar hanging off of the roof and dripping onto my house, trim, my decking, my lawn furniture and my lawn mowers. They also left nails and trash. Furthermore, while working on the interior of my home, I found mold that should have been obvious to the roofers because it was in gaps in the roof decking. I was told there was no mold found. A flat out lie. They also did not remove the old decking, they simply covered it with new decking, there by covering up the mold. The receipt even states that the old decking was removed. Flat out lie. This so-called roofing company took my money and ran. To top it all off, my roof started leaking within three months. Exactly in an area i told and showed them!

Noticed leak under edge of roof in August and had several Roofter come for estimates and 3 said, the shingles were defective probally when they were put on. Had Gottschaulk out in May 2012, after hail storm Gottschaulk said the roof was fine then, Sept 2012 said oh this is hail damaged and said get a 2nd Ins. person ou...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
Had a new roof put on and new facica board. Now 3 yrs later defective shingles from Tamko were noted. Gottschaulk Brothers came out and said, "Oh this is hail damage" and ask for a second Adjuster which they Gottschaulk  didnot show up for they seem to have problems getting messages to one another there. The shingles didnot bond well and the granules loss is excess so said, the 2nd Adjuster from Insurance, my shingles looked like they were 15-16 yrs old, he said. Use are your own peril.

First of all the member has been misinformed. The member called us out in early May to check a sway in the roof over the front porch which we discussed as being in the structure of the property. At that time the roof was in excellent condition with no granual loss. She commented how happy her late husband was with the quality of the job and our workmanship. In September the member called for us to...

Company did not phone before coming as they said they would, so that I could adjust my job schedule and be here when they worked.  I could not communicate with the crew; only at times was there anyone who spoke English.  They worked super-fast, and I was afraid they might be careless.  Sure enough, the flashing around one of the pipes on the roof failed after a big rain the following year.  The co...

DESCRIPTION OF WORK
After hail damage, the company removed one or two layers of old roofing, on different sections of the house, and installed new roof with additional vents. Insurance covered most of it, another $6000.
