Tear off of old shake roof and installation of new concrete “shake” tiles.
I tried to get several estimates for this reroof project last May. Two companies took a look at my house and said they didn’t do roofs that steep. Scott Byrn, the Rep for Above It All Roofing, showed up and said the same thing. What set him apart was his next question: ” Since I’m already here, do you have any questions about roofing I can help you with?” He knew there was nothing in it for him, but he gave me a half hour (on a Friday afternoon, no less) to help me understand a bit more about the roofing process. Before he left he took some measurements and said he’d show the project to the company owner just in case. I went on to get two more estimates–both companies very professional, but not on par with Above It All Roofing. So I was happy when Above It All said they could do the job and gave me a very competitive estimate.
Everyone with the company was courteous and hardworking. I knew I had made the right decision when the foreman of the reroof crew (Ilio? or Elio?), in response to my statement that it must be miserable having to do so much extra work because of the steep roof, said, “No. I don’t mind. I like that the steep roof really shows off our work.” Itwas over one hundred degrees all week, the workers had to be roped in like mountain climbers, but it didn’t matter because of his pride in his craftsmanship.
The finished project exceeds our expectations. People we’ve never met have stopped to ask for information on the roofing product (a synthetic shake made by Boral Roofing called Cedarlite 600) and on the company that installed it.
From start to finish, Above It All Roofing was an exemplary company
