Roofing Company Recommendations
I already checked to see recommendations but all I got was from 2011. I want a professional who will follow through with the job. Our roof is leaking into our attic-the previous roofer came & patched up several spots but apparently did not get to the source. He will now not return my calls. I want someone who ONLY does roofs-when I checked Angie's list, most of those listed were gutter companies that also put on roofs.
Jeff Alte Jr Roofing.
They are local 908-850-8558 and they signs are all over. They've been in the area 20 years. They did our roof 10 years ago did a fantastic job and no leaks ever! www.alteroofing.com
Al's Roofing and Siding. They did our roof at a good price. Quality job.
Give Art at Dalmas Construction a call. His price was the best around and his crew does a great job. I had my house done in May and he did such a good job, he winded up doing my Mom's house as well.
This is his contact info:
George Keller, very helpful explaining everything, price very fair compared to several estimates we got, excellent work.
RJW contracting in Lake Hopatcong. They do a great job for a good price. They did my roof, windows and siding. Amazing work
Roff Roofing in Hackettstown. 908-914-1200. They came right away to give an estimate, then installed a new roof with top quality materials and workmanship. Clean up left our yard and deck cleaner than when they started. They were polite, friendly and showed up on time.
Another recommendation for Jeff Alte. Local guy, family business and reliable. They did our roof, the garage roof and some minor repairs after a storm. They call back promptly and they gave us accurate estimates of both time and cost.
Roff Roofing - we had damage to our roof and leaking, John came right away and gave us a very good price on Friday, on Monday he and his son and crew came, redid our roof with better shingles, all done in one day, cleaned up the ground surrounding the area all in one day - did a Fantastic job!!!! Would highly recommend.
Also recommend Farmers Ins - Allamuchy, this damage was from a storm and they could not get an agent out to inspect quickly, I said we have a roofing repair company coming on Monday - I need the roof fixed, can't wait for an agent. Farmers said to take pictures which we did and I was afraid they would not pay but the agent came on Wednesday and I am happy to report that they gave us a very good check to cover it.
As long as you were not looking for a completely new roof Buckeye fan the insurance companies are reasonable when you have good photos to support your claim. I have seen instances where someone replaces a roof and then someone tells them to submit a claim, usually gets denied. Insurance is for unpredictable events such as a windstorm blowing a few shingles off (may not be enough for deductible) or more damage from a tree falling on a roof, not normal wear and tear...
When attempting to book an estimate with Jeff Alte, the receptionist wanted to make the appointment based on my husband’s availability, not mine, so he could meet with the salesman and talk about supposed manly construction things a chick wouldn’t understand. Of course they’d let me pick the slate color though... Eyerolll.
Anyone have experience with O'Leary Construction based out of the Stroudsburg PA/Blairstown NJ area?? "GAF Master Elite" roofer.
Looking for a new roof install and so far reviews looks favorable from up in those areas. Looks as if they don't do much work here in central Warren county. Any feedback appreciated.
Another recommendation for Jeff Alte, very professional, excellent work, attention to detail. They took almost three days on my roof, other contractors doing my neighbors did it in under a day. IMHO, do it right, hopefully it's the last time you'll need to do it
pampurr - curious to hear why? We wanted them to come give us an estimate and they never showed up. Guess they don't need the business
Both he and his son did roof repairs on our house and my brother in laws house in Hackettstown . They did not fix the problem on both houses. The roofs were still leaking badly.
Subsequently we have contacted Keller and son to replace both roofs.Great pricing, very professional.
Al’s roofing right in hackettstown
We were recommended by friends and him and his staff did a quality job on our roof for a great price. Never heard of any complaints with them...
That would be even more insulting if your husband's education and career was decidedly non-technical in nature, but is stupid beyond words to begin with. I can see why you didn't choose them.
I also agree that Matute Roofing is a great choice, though I didn't know they came out this far. My Dad just had his roof done by them about 6 months ago and with the various estimates he got and choices of material and warranty, they offered what seemed to be the best deal of all. It was. They came to their house in Parsippany and had the old shingles stripped off and the new roof installed. They also noted that some guttering needed to be replaced and did an awesome job on that too. Everything was done in one day to a decently-sized house and its attached 2 car garage.
In fact, when my Dad and I were watching a crew for a bit that was putting a new roof on a house about 5 doors up from his about 2 months ago, another neighbor from around the corner stopped and was watching with us. We talked for a bit and he was convinced by my Dad that Matute Roofing was the way to go as well. His roof is now done and he was definitely pleased with the job itself and the professionalism and neatness of the crew itself.
Roff Roofing when they went to both houses saw that both roofs were done incorrectly. They tried there best to stop the leaks on multiple occassions. Homeowners were told to REPLACE roof but homeowners did not want to hear it. Customer tarped there roof for months. So, like Roff Roofing said, the roof needed to be replaced. Months later the homeowner finally replaced it.
PhilD, apologies for not seeing your reply until now. Glad you are able to second my recommendation for the forum! Matute was top notch and several family members have used them since we had our roof replaced.
Oh yes... and as for that other roofer’s marketing tactics: They really should get with the times!
I can vouch for the customer service of Roff Roofing. We had a roofing emergency and were scrambling to find a company who could help. They called us back promptly and appreciate their customer service.
Keller and sons from Flanders. They are a bit more expensive (at least they were for my roof) but, as with most things, you get what you pay for.
This may sound strange, but give Home Depot a call. We got a quote and it wasnt the lowest, but I liked the quality they offered and we could put it on our HD card. Especially check the ridge vent......head and shoulders above anything else that we looked at. And they cant just "disappear" like so many others.
Another vote for Keller as well. Roff couldn't return calls and Alte sent a kid with high pressure sales and also the highest price for GAF materials.
Been in the market for a new roof. Have gotten 5 estimates. What Don said...Alte was also the highest price out of my 5 quotes. He apparently wants to use exclusively top of the line GAF *ULTRA* HD $hingle$ and his sales kid associate would not budge on price for me wanting to go with the regular GAF HD shingle all the other roofers quoted to use. Having done my homework, "GAF Master Elite Roofer" O'Leary will be getting my business in the coming months once the weather warms. In all fairness Jeff Alte is also certified "GAF Master Elite Roofer" but his prices these days are literally through the roof!
Any information on..... four j's contracting & roofing
Any comments for Liberty Roofing was Rocky Roofing years back
Any comments for Deegan Brothers out of Phillipsburg??
Also how do most folks finance this project? Go with roofing company financing options? Personal 401K withdrawal? Any comments concerning Greensky financing company? I'm getting offers at 9.99% with them. Hard to find anything lower right now.
Personal long or home equity loan should be between 4 and 7 %. Don’t touch the 401k until retirement
I second to stay away from Roff Roofing. They never showed up to give us an estimate and we asked twice
Roff is very unreliable. I gave them multiple chances to come out and they didn’t show up every time. Either they are so busy they don’t care about the business or they just plain can’t get their sh*t together. Stay away.
Amen. Stay away from Roff Roofing. He took 400 bucks and did not fix the leak in my roof, subsequently I had to get a roofer to do the entire roof.
RJW Exteriors (973) 839-3824 is a top notch company. They did our roof last year and the crew was very professional and completed the job in one day.
They also do siding, doors and windows.
Still can't say enough good things about Keller. Our local guys are shadier than an apple orchard. Stay far away.
Roff Roofing is stating he never did work for us. I have a entire FB thread between him and myself.
I complained to him he never fixed the leak. When will you be back in the future to fix it?Crickets from then on in.
Roff Roofing prides itself on its customer service and the quality of its workmanship. Excellent customer service and quality of workmanship is especially important because our family name is included in our company name. Accordingly, the negative reviews posted require a proper response.
Roff Roofing is not stating they never repaired the Homeowner's roof. Roff Roofing tried their best to stop the Homeowner's leaks on multiple occasions. Roff Roofing informed the Homeowner that the roof needed REPLACEMENT on multiple occasions, and that the previous installation was incorrect. Unfortunately the Homeowner did not want to hear it. Roff Roofing even offered their assistance with the Homeowner’s insurance company, but again the Homeowner did not want assistance speaking with their insurance company to inform them of the problems that Roff Roofing discovered.
I am not sure how many times Roff Roofing needs to inform the Homeowner that it was an incorrect installation from the previous contractor and that Roff Roofing cannot keep fixing the Homeowner's preexisting problem. Repairs on roofs such as that cannot be guaranteed unfortunately. The true anger should be directed at the previous roofer who was not mentioned in this thread and who did the installation incorrectly previously.
It should also be noted the Homeowner did finally REPLACE their roof. The roof was obviously not installed by Roff Roofing but nonetheless, the Homeowner finally did REPLACE their roof just as Roff Roofing suggested on multiple occasions to the Homeowner.
While Roff Roofing would love to receive only positive reviews, an occasional negative online review may be expected to occur in the course of conducting a business. Roff Roofing accepts and learns from a negative review.
I am also in the market for roof prices... What ever you do, don’t call John Cash. His price was double of another estimate that I got.... I heard the same things about Roff Roofing, that they are very expensive and bad customer service.... The only ones saying good things about them, are THEM! Lol..
Our roof was done by Al's Roofing and Siding. They are very easy to work with, did an excellent job, and the price was the best we found. Highly recommend.
As Havaclue said, don't call John Cash. He's super expensive and he'll hit on your wife. Not very professional, don't use him for anything unless you're looking for a divorce.
Concerning brand of shingles...GAF, CertainTeed or Tamko? Any why?
Al's Roofing, the best value for the dollar!
Jeff Alte roofing is outrageous with his prices, had 3 estimates, some minor differences, all local companies around Hackettstown. Alte's price was over double of the other 2 companies.
Great reliable roof contractor in Long Valley.
Can anybody recommend a contractor that will fix a roof leak in a detatched garage?....none of the above will give me the time of day....needs to be part of bigger project before they will look at it
You can try Fania Roofing out of Dover. They have crews that take care of just these types of issues.
You can try to contact an independent contractor, Chris Chmielewski. He is located out of Flemington.
Any new recommendations since October? We are looking for a roofer to fix leaks and water damage, possibly replace shingles. It's probably from recent storms so will need an estimate for the insurer.
I'll still stick with my and NJITGrad's recommendation of Matute Roofing at
973 618 6489
Since my Dad was so pleased with the job they did on the roof of their house in Parsippany, he had them do the house in Hopatcong just a couple of months ago. In and out in a day, great job and great price.
George Keller, very professional, explains everything, price is fair and work is done correctly.
Green Valley, call Steve ...out of Roxbury these days .
Great work, very clean, detailed.
Roof leaks must be repaired from the outside to ensure the problem is corrected. However, when it is not practical to climb up on the roof to fix a leak, such as during the winter months, you can also repair a leaky roof temporarily, from the inside. First Locate the source of the leak by examining the underside of the roof from within your attic or crawl space. Mark the areas that appear to be leaks with chalk, so they will be easier to find later when making a permanent repair. Let the wet areas dry and then apply the patch to the underside of the roof with a putty knife. Use enough of the roof patch to liberally cover the leaky area. Also don’t forget to fix any leaks on the outside of the roof using EPDM Liquid Rubber.
9 times out of 10 the leak is coming from a skylight or some type of roof penetration like a pipe or fan. next place to check is the peak of the roof directly above your leak. could have a problem at the hip of the roof that's traveling down the roof and entering inside mid roof.
Wondering what roof replacement costs. Can anyone share what they paid .... I know it depends on the size of the house, but want to get a general idea for a moderate / average sized house.
2 weeks ago
Lots of variables of course such as size of roof, tear off or go over, damage found on sheathing, ice and water shield install, type of roofing material etc. However I have recently reviewed a few roof quotes locally and they seem to run anywhere from $400 - $600 a square based on a lifetime warranty asphalt shingle.
To calculate simply measure each roof area- length by width then use that square foot total(s) and multiply by100 to get the total number of square for the roof. For an example here in town, most homes in the Kenwood section of town are in the 13-15 square range.
Just used ProForm Gutters and Roofing for gutter replacement. Really nice guy. Local guy, went to HHS, fair pricing, with good results. 973.229.3907
