Their Work Was Phenomenal

Interstate Roofing put redid our roof recently with composition roofing and I have to say their work was phenomenal. The crew was excellent. They started their day at 7 AM and finished each day by 7 PM. Throughout the job, you couldn't even tell there was actual work being done because the clean up was so thorough and no debris was left on the side of the house. The workers were safely harnessed at all times during work on the roof, so as a home owner I wasn't concerned at all about safety issues because they clearly were using good safety practices.

The staff was attentive and they provided us with all the info we needed to prepare for the actual work itself. They talked to us about making sure that our attic was clear of any belongings and to prep the attic with drop cloths in case there was any debris that would come into the attic. As I already mentioned, it was their responsibility to take care of all the clean up outside the house, and they did a formidable job, but we were responsible for cleaning up the attic. In the end, there was very little debris that came through because they did such a good job keeping the debris from the roof tear off on the roof itself.

The administrative folks and the supervisors were all very attentive to our questions. Their sales person who came out to go over the materials and describe what would actually happen with the crew. They did a really good job letting us know what to expect and describing the composition roofing we were going to purchase. They talked about the type of felt that would be used to cover the plywood and about how they would vent the roof after the plywood was in place. They placed the drop-box right where we needed them to so we could still have access to the garage. We were very happy with everything and have already told a number of our neighbors about how pleased we were. The neighbors seem to think the roof looks good too.

We figured it was going to be a 3-4 day job, but they probably finished 90% of the work in the first 2 days and then they came back once more to complete the venting and some finishing touches. As far as the cost factor, it was very good. We had already gotten three bids from other roofing companies in the area and I think they were right in the middle of the pack in terms of cost. For us, it came down to a couple of things. For one, we have known the business and the principles involved in the business for probably about 20 years. The other is that we have seen their work throughout the area very often and have never heard anything negative about their work at all. Interstate Roofing has probably done work on about 75% of the housing in our neighborhood over the past year or so. Their reputation around here seems to be pretty good.
