When my grandfather started roofing, his philosophy of business was grounded in the highest standards and "old time" values: honesty, integrity, and pride. This was a time when these core values where the backbone of America. He knew that a good reputation was much harder to gain than a bad one and the respect and trust of his customers must be earned and re-earned every day. My grandfather’s values upon which Roof Masters was founded have now passed through Three generations. We hope we remain blessed and are fortunate enough to pass them down to future generations. They are the building block of a proud family tradition, the source of our inspiration and the reason for our success.

I couldn't have hoped for anything or anyone better, unless of course they worked for free. We are still in the thick of it but can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Ben is a remarkable, personable professional who gets right back to me, call, text or email. He sends pics from the worksite. If you are looking for a contractor in the midcoast area, you'd be crazy not to talk to Ben.

Description of Work
These guys embarked on a HUGE renovation at my house built in the 40s as a camp with no foundation. They tore up the existing floor, dug down below frost by hand, engineered and poured new footings then reframed floor, rebuilt walls, rehung sheetrock...They have been so amazing, enthusiastic, skilled, accommodating, funny, intelligent and wide open to the adventure of it all...in the midst of crawling around in marine clay, rotten wood, dragging everything in and out of the house by hand with wheelbarrows, they greet me with smiles every time I see them. Can't recommend them highly enough, truly.

Went on vacation without notifying customer, went weeks at a time without showing up to the work, did work that wasn't even asked to do, smoked in the apartment building where they were renovation and left buckets of urine in the building. Walked off the job in December and did not complete the work.

During the process, communications were excellent by keeping me informed on progress. While replacing timber over door, he discovered a second timber that was rotted and needed to be replaced. The extra work ...

I cant imagine using anyone else for future projects. Although the cost was a little on the high side the care Ben and his crew took was excellent. Each task was performed with skill and dedication to detail. Moreover, unlike other contractors I have dealt with, communication with Ben was excellent: he was always responsive and always lived up to his commitments. I found Cairn on Angie's List and ...
