Home Depot Compliment - Pleased - roofing installation
I have also recently had a roof installed by the home depot. I got five quotes before i chose a company to do my project. I had a couple local contractors give me some real low quotes, a larger local home imoprovement company that gave me a real large quote and Home Depot that was some what in the middle. Home Depot and the Capizzi Home improvements both went though the scope of work they do and why certain aspects of the roof need different materials. Home Depot explained they install and weathe stopper roofing system that has many components that are required for them to install ie. ventilation and rubber leak protection. Capizzi explained a similar system to me with out a fancy name, but they were overpriced. I then being a smart consumer as i do consider my self one, researched this "roofing system" and found it on GAF's website http://www.gaf.com/General/GafMain.asp?Silo=RES1&WS=GAF
. I was happy to see it really existed and saw the value in having it protect my home.
I decided to have home depot install my roof the original installation was scheduled for a friday but the day before the coordinator called to rescheduled because she was concerned about the weather the following day. At first i was upset but then realized she was just looking out for my home. The next day it rained all day. We rescheduled for the following week. The day of the installation the crew showed up early to get started. The Project manager was there in the morning although he did not stay for the whole project he assured me that i was in good hands. About an hour in to it one of the workers came to inform me that i had some rotten wood that needed replacing. I knew this was a possibility and asked if i could see. Because it was so high up on the roof he showed my pictures on his digital camera. They replaced 5 pieces of ply wood and informed me once again that it would be an additional cost. They finished the project in one day and cleaned up to perfection. I was expecting to have to clean up alot from what i had heard from friends after their roofs had been done. Not only did they rake my yard they used magnets to get all of the nails that ended up in my yard. All in all i was very happy with the project that was done. The project manager returned the next day to inspect my roof anc collect final payment, I informed him i was very satisfied with the prohect. After he collected the payment he told me that GaF the shingle manufacturer would be out in 6-8 months to do ANOTHER inspection of the installation. I realize i probably could have saved some money by going with one of the other guys but I am sure i would have not gotten the same quality roof or service.
