A Job Exceedingly Well Done on this 1914 Beauty
I like older homes because they have character and a story to tell. That’s why I chose The Roofing Company to do the replacement on my turn of the century home. Knowing that this 1914 beauty has good, strong bones, I did not want to replace the roof structure with modern day, pressed wood chips and glue or plywood but the strength, integrity and longevity that comes with blank boards.
Like early times in the building trades you need to have a strong leader to overcome difficult challenges. A leader that can orchestrate a trained crew of craftsmen in a safe and organized workforce trusting each other and working as a team. That leader was Rick Mulligan.
Rick was the most organized Project Leader I have seen in a long time. He inspected each and every detail during the tear down phase, having all the exterior materials removed to the bare blanks of wood, inspecting each and every board. If he found something, he would let me know before disassembling further and if I wanted to, I had the opportunity to inspect within safety or call in the photo drone to see via remote camera.
Yep, I like old homes and this one did not disappointment me because the blanks were still strong with good integrity. Only a small few (less than 5) were replaced with plank boards before continuing.
The new roofing went into place and every step of the way was checked and inspected. Although I have not had a roof-leak in this 1914 beauty, I wanted to make certain, it would endure well into the future.
The photos below show the process and the finished roof and copper vents orchestrated by The Roofing Company.
The roof looks great, the company stayed on schedule and after the roofing job was completed, we had a couple real-hard-down-pours which was a great way to test my new roof—perfect.
I would like to express my deep satisfaction to The Roofing Company for sending me their best man for the job in Rick Mulligan; a job exceedingly well done, as well as a great clean-up of all debris which really made my wife very happy.
I would recommend anyone needing a roof to strongly consider The Roofing Company. You will be glad you did.
Ken showed up promptly for the appointment and was very informative on the leakage problem and how to fix it. He took the time to show photos of the affected areas before and after the repairs. I would highly recommend Ken and your company to anyone who needed roof work done.
It could not have gone better. Every pre-work interface with them (personal or via e-mail) was courteous and timely. Scheduling was prompt, and when they arrived on site, their work was efficient and flawless. We could not have asked for better, and in fact, they will be returning to complete more work on our roof in the new year.
I want to express my satisfaction with the work done by Kevin and James on my roof. They were on time and professional in their representation for your company.
Ken was extremely knowledgeable, professional, and detail oriented, and did an excellent job inspecting our roof. Despite misting rain, Ken made it a point to get up on the roof to do an in-depth inspection. Good thing, because he documented and photographed many infractions, such as no starter shingles on the eaves, poorly installed chimney flashing, and a broken vent pipe. Once his inspection was complete, he took the time to review each photo with me and answer all my questions.
When we received his report, we were very impressed, each photo came with a write-up and his overall assessment. For this reason, we would highly recommend Ken and The Roofing Company to all our friends and neighbors.
We had our roof replaced. The sales rep Chuck was very professional presenting us with different options and warranties. The workers who came out were great-done in one day and after they left you wouldn’t know they were there. Chris, the manager, came out and talked with both my husband the day of install and myself after. We walked around the house and he explained everything that was done as well as answering my questions about some other things I wanted to replace. Our roof looks great and we look forward to future projects with The Roofing Company.
