We believe you are one of the best roofing companies. We greatly appreciate that all testing and repairs were done professionally and in a very tight time frame. Hopefully, with your maintenance, our roof will serve for many years.
- We really enjoyed working with your company on our last project. Your staff is highly professional and pleasant to work with. Your expertise and attitude are exceptional. We hope to cooperate with you on many more projects.
Chris did not over sell but encouraged us to get a few more years out of our roof. He gave us the estimate ( the final price reflects the Angie's List disount). He gave us the website of Metal Mart who provide the material. Metal Mart has a local showroom and I was able to visit, get good information from the representative, and take away samples of the material. The work was swift and professional. Within a day, a crew of approx. 8 work people came to the house, stripped off the old roof and intalled the metal roof. They cleaned up beautifully and were very pleasant. For those considering metal, it does better than the shingles in NM winds, has a long guarantee and does not make noise in the rain. We are very satisfied with Alvarado roofing but would also suggest a homeowner follow up with the administrative details ie; scheduling and payment .
The service turned out great. When I spoke with Alvarado they told me they have worked with another company that I had contacted for insulation. The price was right in the ballpark of the other quotes that I had gotten. They did a good job, they came in and put on the new roof, and they worked well with the insulation company. They did not need a lot of supervision.
Working with Alvarado Roofing was great from start to finish.
I called and described the nature of the roof problems I was having, and they scheduled a time to come out and quote the job. The men who came out to quote the job were punctual, friendly, thorough, and professional, and we discussed various options for redecking and repairing damaged joists in the roof. I had the quote the next day, and when I signed the contract they were very accommodating about working around my schedule.
On the appointed day it was fun to watch them get started. They had a large crew to strip the old roof off the house, all of whom were polite and obviously hardworking. With three layers of shingles to remove it took some work, but by early afternoon they had all of the old roof off and had already started nailing down the new one. The deck and joist repairs were done neatly and properly, and the flashings for my new skylight and attic fan were mounted carefully so that everything lined up correctly. By the end of the first day, the new roof was over halfway on.
The second day they brought out a smaller crew since there wasn't the need for an army of people scraping off old shingles. The work continued as before, though, and by the time I got home from work I was greeted with the sight of a brand-new roof, without the sagging eaves and leaking porch roof of the old one.
What impressed me most about the job was the attention they put into the details. As I mentioned, I had some new roof penetrations, and these were mounted carefully and in accordance with my instructions. The cleanup was done extremely well - I saw the job in progress and wondered how they'd ever get all the old roof debris picked up, but they'd spread plastic to help make it easier, and they obviously put a lot of effort into getting it cleaned up.
I short, I couldn't be happier with the job that Alvarado did. This was a lot of money for me to spend, and I'm relieved to have had the job go so smoothly, and to have a contractor who I really believe installed everything correctly so that I'll get the maximum benefit from my investment. I don't expect to have to work on my roof again for a long time, but if and when I need work done again, I know exactly who I'll be calling.
Alvarado did a great job at fixing our flat roof back on June 25 2013. Out of the 7 companies that we called, they had the most competitive bid. They were on time for the estimate, which was free, they were also on time for work- 6:00 am. They were also done by 4:00 that afternoon. They did come back 2 days later to finish the flashing and then we had them replace 2 skylights that were pretty old. Everyone, including the work crew, was nice. We would call them back in 10 years to do it again!
This is the third time that we have used Alvarado Roofing in the last thirty years. We had all three roofs replaced because of hail damage. The work was done quickly, the workers very cordial, and the mess was cleaned as it was made.
