Thursday, August 11th, 2011

Angie’s List, a leading national provider of consumer reviews, polled some highly rated (according to Angie’s List) roofing contractors about the pros and cons of metal roofing. They follow that up with a list of tips for hiring a metal roofing company.

Covered Bridges to Trade Cedar-shingle Roofs for Metal Tops

Tuesday, July 26th, 2011

Some covered bridges in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania are going to take on a new look. Well, not a totally new look, but one from a different time in their histories. Plans are to replace the cedar-shingle roofs for six county-owned covered bridges with metal roofs.

Water leaked into our home as the ice dams melted.

Dear Classic Metal Roofs:

My husband and I purchased our first home in 2004. The shingle roof on the house was replaced in the spring of 2005. Although it was structurally sound, we had an ongoing problem. The heating/central air unit, which creates its own heat, is located in the attic. This heat would rise and melt the snow on the top of the house. As the snow dripped down the roof it would re-freeze and form multiple ice dams. My husband faithfully raked the snow off the roof with each new snow storm. Unfortunately, when the temperature when above 32 degrees, water leaked into our home as the ice dams melted.

We looked to friends, family and professionals for a solution. I also did some research online. A metal roof seemed to be our best option. There were several metal roofing companies available online. I was most impressed with Classic Metal Roofs, LLC. Their website is clear, informative, and easy to follow. I sent an e-mail with our situation. I promptly received an e-mail response followed by a phone call to schedule a free consult appointment in my home. Michael Gonet brought many photos of their work and samples of the roofing material. After a brief, very informative presentation, he answered all our questions in detail. We were also provided with a few addresses in our area of clients who purchases metal roofs through Classic Metal Roofs, LLC. I drove by them and was impressed with the quality and appearance of their homes. I also spoke with a customer who had similar heating system issues. We were sold.

Our roof was started and completed as per the contract. All the workers were personable, competent, and professional. I have not a single complaint. It is reassuring to know they stand behind their work. My home looks fabulous and will last a lifetime. I am very satisfied with our entire experience with Classic Metal Roofs, LLC.

Thank you,

Letter of appreciation

Friday, June 5th, 2009

Dear Classic Metal Roofs:

Just a letter of appreciation for the fine job you and your company did in providing me with a handsome new roof. Of course the “proof of the pudding is in the eating”, and this letter should probably be written in another few decades when the roof has met its promise by fending off the rain, snows, and wind that we get lots of here in New England.

Since I would have to be a centenarian to be around to see it, though, I will have to restrict my comments at this writing to the pleasure I’ve had in dealing with you and your company. This 100-year-old house presented many challenges, with its variety slopes, its many rotted siding boards, and its decaying chimney. The chimney man you connected me with did a great job on very short notice at a quite reasonable price.

The job was completed on time, your workmen were industrious and friendly, the choice of tiles was quite appropriate and has brought forth comments on good looks from friends and neighbors. A small amount of ceiling stains that resulted from some unexpectedly heavy rains at a critical point in the process was speedily corrected, leaving things actually better than they were initially.

On the whole, I’m very pleased and proud of my new roof, and I take comfort in the confidence that if any problems arise, you will be there to take care of it.

Best wishes,
Dan S. (Waban, MA 02468)

Thank you ClassicMetal Roofs!

Dear Classic Metal Roofs:

I want to thank you, your hard-working installation crew, and your sales and administration staff for an excellent job on my roof.

I realize very well that my roof was a challenge technically. That’s why I looked for a long time for the right company to do the work. I chose well when I decided to go with Classic.

I expected, based on past experience with other companies, that there would be damage to shrubs and all sorts of inconvenience. Your crew left without a trace and were highly motivated and professional.

Sincerely,
Michael S. (Pleasant Valley, CT 06063)
