The reason for my introduction to a roofer in Alpharetta, GA was not a pleasant one – my previous roofer turned out to be less than proper contractor. Roof which was replaced less than 10 years ago needed to be replaced again.
I was explained later that during previous re-roofing 10 years ago the tool (something like pneumatic hammer – sorry for my non-specialist vocabulary) wasn’t adjusted properly in order to hammer the nails down to exact depth for them to be able to hold shingles in place. The holding surface of a nail should be flash with upper surface of the shingle. Nails shouldn’t stick out but they also shouldn’t penetrate too deep as it would cause a crack around holding area of a nail.
That was exactly what happened to me. A couple of years go about 10 shingles were blown away one night. After painful arguing with the previous roofer I ended paying him for the repair he supposed to do as a part of the warranty. This winter the story repeated – one night more then 10 shingles were torn away. It could be repaired, but the problem would be still there, so it was decided that a new roof would be the solution.
I didn’t want to repeat my mistake and this spring I decided to make things proper way. I spend some time studying roofers’ reviews online and the roofing company named The Roof Clinic came to my attention. They have an office in Duluth but most valuable information I gathered not from the roofer but from actual client testimonials after contacting them.
One of the aspects of good roofing job is cleanliness and property protection. What I’ve read was really encouraging: “We have used The Roof Clinic to replace our roof. Arthur helped us pick the right shingles and he offered us a very competetive price. We had 5 quotes for the project and decided to go with The Roof Clinic and we are very glad we did so! They respected the scheduled date, protected our garden bushes, windows etc. They worked the whole day and finished on time. They cleaned perfectly around the house. I already recomended them to my collegues at work and they also used The Roof Clinic and they were happy they did. This is a great contractor.” -Marius
Almost all of testimonials mentioned clean job and fair estimate. But some also paid attention to unusual repairs I thought could be involved in my case. I read: “The project was well handled from the estimate (which was detailed) to completion and clean-up. The estimate was fair & competitive. The contractor repaired a small section of the roof-sheathing plywood (which was rotted due to a prior leak) at no extra cost. All my questions concerning shingle types and their projected durability were answered. The project was started and completed on time (as promised).”- John Balatinecz in Suwanee.
One of the aspect of good job was an ability to finish everything in one day as it could be necessary in late fall or early spring time. One of previous clients wrote: “Arthur Braguta explained before the start what and how his team is going to do on my roof. On company’s web site there is a video with all steps of work presented. On a day set for a start (early November 2010), they showed up at 8AM and worked until 10PM, using reflector lights. They wanted to finish the job same day, despite very complicated roof construction. Attention was paid to every detail. At the end, they did thorough cleaning around the property, using magnet sweeps to collect all loose nails. The whole process was exactly as shown on video presentation. The job was done very professionally and I can recommend these guys to everyone who needs re-roofing of the house.” – Zivan in Gwinnett.
So I decided to go for it and hired Eric and his company The Roof Clinic. He really did the great job with my roof and everything was as promised. I just wondered why it’s so that they reach this level of customer satisfaction and after a little research I found the points that separate him form the rest of Alpharetta roofers:
First: They do roofing and roofing only. There’s no point of asking to do any other work related to a property if it’s not roofing. They reach a level professionalism by specializing of one thing.
Second: They don’t use any subcontractors, which are interested in making job done fast rather then properly as it was the case with my previous roofer.
Third: All their foreman and installers factory-trained in best and most modern roofing techniques.
So, I found the Alpharetta roofing company The Roof Clinic. more than fulfilling their promises. It’s a leading company in quality and all the related aspects of their work.
