A lot of people in town have had a new roof done because of the storm on July 1 that took the roof of the grade school. I have lots of hail damage and am looking for a good contractor that can get it done. I do not want to go with CertaSeal or K.Simon. I want to choose someone more local with better customer reviews. If anyone has had work done and can recommend or review any of the local roofers please share your experiences.

Maybe you should get some references from the contractors instead of getting on here and asking these idiots for their opinion. Just an idea.

The phone book has plenty of local contractors who would be happy to do the work for you. Get references from them before you hire.

If everyone on here are idiots then why would someone who thinks they are better-meaning you-be on here reading comments and responding? Your the idiot now.

AmieR, have you had an opportunity to have a consultant from Certaseal visit with you, review your home and provide you with a free estimate ?

I like Missmouthy had a roof done with CertaSeal I got quality work. The way I look at it, some people are never happy and just need to cry regardless. I to recommend them.

I live in Benton and we had our roof done 2 years ago by CertaSeal Construction and I couldn't be happier with the work. Their representative came out to our house and inspected our roof, explained everything to us, how to go about contacting our Insurance co. It went very well, setting everything up with the Insurance co. When the roofers showed up, they were very professional and had the roof torn off, redecked and reroofed in a matter of a few days. They even cleaned up all of the mess, which was a blessing to me since we have grand children that frequently come on the weekends. I would highly recommend this company, they are very professional and dedicated to their work!!

You responded again! Haha Dont turn this around on me. I'm not the one who initially called people on topix idiots. I know I'm not an idiot so no offense taken. I just like to call people out on their silly responses.

We all know that homeowners, businesses and professionals use this site regularly for advice and services. What the hell was I even talking about, my bad for being silly.

Thanks for all your input. I rarely use or visit Topix but thought I would see of anyone had roofing done and could give positive feedback about their experiences
When it comes to spending that much money references are a must. I have not dealt with certaseal or had a chance to call for an estimate but by the looks of things they have quite a few houses to get done still. Im still umdecided at this point but have an idea who I might go with as soon as I get references
Thanks to all

AmieR, w e have many happy clients in the Christopher area, and I wouldn’t mind earning your business also. We have a completely different construction process when it comes to installing roofing systems and we provide great value for the money you invest in your home. We don’t take any down payments and have hundreds of local references. We are also going to be installing the new roofing system on the St. Andrews Church. When you call for your free estimate, mention this forum. We will take $ 300.00 off of your estimate. Should you decide to enjoy the benefits of Certaseal, we will install your new roofing system at a date specified by you. Thanks you for time.

Probably the most professional company is Certaseal! They get the job done and the crews are friendly and extremely knowledgeable of the whole roofing process.

I cant see anyone professional using this site to promote their business. But, if someone is actually getting on here and trying to earn someone elses money and business, then make that call and see if they are going to honor their word. $300 off (and that means you arent hiking up the price to make up for the difference) and you are going to give her that discount for mentioning this website, lol, have at it. Honor your word, that is, if you have that authority in the first place and are on here promoting your business. Stand by your word. Make that call and make sure you get back with us on here.

I have also had my roof done by certaseal after the may 8th storm. My roof was done in good time and I have had no problems with the company or my roof. The company has also done several of my family and friends houses with no complaints. I would and have recommended them several times.

I'm surprised to see the thread still moving, but that's great. Like I said in my original post I was seeking other homeowners who had roofing work completed. I was merely looking for their testimonials to vouch for the contractors they decided to hire for the job. I have seen a lot of K.Simon signs and Certaseal signs throughout the neighborhood. The reason I decided against those is because of K.Simons reviews I was able to find online from customers and the B.B.B. Also when considering spending such a large amount of money I rather have a contractor who is local in case there is any trouble with the work. I was not able to verify Certaseal through the B.B.B. I am not saying they aren't. I was just unable to find verification. The only reviews from Certaseal I have seen are within this thread that I started. I have decided to hire someone more local that has done 3 roofs of people I know personally so I am feeling confident I have made the right decision. I can only pass on a word of advice to others and say make an informed decision when there is that much money involved. Thanks for all the comments..
