We’ve been tackling some long over due home improvements in the past few weeks. First on the agenda was the roof.
For several years we relied on our neighbor, a “home improvement contractor” to check the shingles and patch bad areas when necessary. After all, our townhouses shared a roof line and we had a mutual interest in maintaining the property. Right? WRONG!
Very simply, our neighbor/contractor took shortcuts, used inferior materials and was inept. (And yes, he is no longer our neighbor.)
Fortunately, through the reliable recommendations on our neighborhood list serv we found Glen Schrank of Falcon Roofing.
Glen has worked in the Beverley Hills/Rosemont/Del Ray area for over 30 years. No Web site, no blog, no ads – just good strong neighbor to neighbor recommendations year after year.
They took “before” pictures to accompany the estimate – an essential tip that I am passing on to all my clients.
- They started and finished when they said they would.
- They made excellent recommendations about materials and colors. Their price was right in line with other estimates.
- Their cleanup was impeccable.
Overall it was a terrific experience. Falcon Roofing takes great pride in their work and we are happy to recommend them.
It’s a good day in the neighborhood -
