Did not install the drip guard that was included in Estimate. After contacting him for six weeks he tells me it was not included. I have to prove it was - he comes back and only does the front of the house when the major issue with water run off is the back.. After asking about 35 year Warranty I did not receive - he sends me a blank Warranty that I cannot submit because the materials he installed must be completed by him. i have no idea how many bundles of shingles what type of weatherguard he used etc. I never received a warranty for the workmanship either. So I spent over six thousand on a roof without warranties unless he finally gets back to me with the completed warranty form so I can submit it.
What an experience! Our roof replacement took 2 FULL days (16+ hours) - compared to 5 neighbors surrounding us which took 4-6 hours! Never would have imagined professional roofers needed to be watched constantly to ensure steps weren't skipped and the job was done properly. Shingle removal was beyond messy - nails and bits of shingle everywhere - spent over 2 hours sweeping after the crew "cleaned up". Underlayment was not put on the back half of our roof - this underlayment was required for the warranty on the shingles installed. When this mistake was noticed, informed the installer who tried to say it wasn't necessary because of the pitch of our roof, to which I then explained that Jeff (owner) had said it was to go on the entire roof. I was then told that Jeff would be called and asked about it - installer stood on the roof staring at me, making no attempt to contact Jeff. It took my calling Jeff, who then spoke to the "job site manager" and was told it needed to be fixed. We were having drip edge installed - this wasn't done until after we mentioned again that it was there and the crew had no clue it was being installed. A 5th roof vent was added to the rear of our roof - by a hole being hammered through the roof - they had a circular saw on site, just didn't use it until we let Jeff know how the hole was made. The crew took breaks more often than they actually worked, and one crew member urinated on our back patio and fence. Very lazy, extremely disrespectful crew. Would never recommend this company to anyone!
Anyone who stands outside for three days looking at roofers who are working there socks off in heat and constantly criticis the workers has no idea about roofing.
This is a person I should have realized was so lazy she and her husband found extreme pleasure in complaining constantly.
Maybe in future she should get to the gym and realize what hard work is. Then they might understandwhat hard work is.
I hired Jeff Harling from Redbear to replace the roof and upgrade the attic insulation from R20 to R60. Even though his price was higher than other competitors I preferred him because he impressed me with his responsiveness, knowledge and expertise. I thought that I will pay extra for better quality. I never check the job done on the roof and I never received the promised pictures showing every step was done correctly. I suppose it is ok. However later, as it didn’t feel right with the temperature in house I checked the insulation. I found that the old material was removed and added new material that is less than initial R20. I contacted Jeff and after several calls he accepted to come and check the work done by his employees. He agreed that is not properly done and he will fix it in 2 weeks. For more than a year I called him every month and the answer was always in 2 weeks he will fix it. 2 year passed since he did the work and it still not fixed.
