Walker contracting recently did our roof. They did a very thorough job in a timely manner and completely cleaned up after completing the work. They are experts at their job and if you want a job done perfectly, the Walkers are the way to go. I know that I will not have to even think about getting this job done again for another 40 years.

The work was somewhat delayed by the weather but they finished the job on the day they came. The person in charge of the job was very good at explaining the work to be done and followed up with me afterwards.

This is the second time we engaged Peter & Greg Walker to do work on our home. The first time was to replace eavestroughing and siding in 2014 and inspect our shingles/roof for potential replacement. We had several quotes done at that time and Walker was chosen because of price, scope of work and recommendations from our neighbours. They ended up doing only the eavestroughs, sliding and a roof tune-up. They felt we could get another few years on the shingles. The work at that time was great and improved the look of our 1950s bungalow.

When it came time to replace the shingles we didn't bother getting any other quotes because we trusted Peter & Greg Walker to do the job right. As we had some animal damage to our shingles, Walker fixed the damaged parts immediately, since doing the whole roof was not possible until several weeks later. The job is complete and the roof looks great. Once again the look of our 1950s bungalow is improved.

The roof on our home was challenging, with many steep peaks. My husband and I were confident that Peter and Greg Walker Contracting could handle the work and they did not disappoint. We could always trust they would show up when they said they would, get the job done right, and clean up afterwards. Smooth sailing every step of the way.

CURRENT REVIEW:
As noted below, my wife and I encountered a problem a few months after our roof was re-shingled and our chimney was rebuilt. The initial response from Peter & Greg Walker Contracting was disappointing.

With that said, after my previous review was posted, I received a call from Greg Walker. He listened to what I had to say and sincerely apologised for what had transpired. The mere fact that Greg Walker called me was impressive. To me, his call showed a commitment to customer service.

We can't change what happened earlier. However, the discussion I had with Greg Walker restored my confidence in his firm as a company I would not hesitate to use again and to recommend to my friends. From the tone of our conversation and from the things that were said, it is obvious that Mr. Walker takes customer satisfaction very seriously.

PREVIOUS REVIEW:
My wife and I received excellent service when the work was first done. A few months later, after the invoice was fully paid, I called about a problem. The President of the company could hardly have cared less.

Earlier this year, we used Peter & Greg Walker Contracting to re-shingle our roof and replace a portion of our chimney. At the time all seemed to go well. Then, as the heating season approached, we arranged for another firm to come in an re-brick our fireplace. The fireplace contractor noticed that the damper was jammed shut. When he took the fireplace apart, the contractor discovered a very large piece of masonry that had fallen down the flue and fallen on top of the damper. I called the President of Peter & Greg Walker Contracting to report this for his information, not as a potential claim. He did not return my original call but did return the follow up call that I placed a week later.

When we spoke on the phone, the President had no interest in finding out what happened. Although he had no difficulty coming to our house a few months earlier to pick up the cheque for our final payment, he scoffed at my suggestion that he come to the house to see for himself the size of the object that had dropped on top of the damper during the chimney replacement. He was content to let the matter go by saying he has had good experience in the past with the sub-contractor who did our chimney replacement. Although he said he was sorry we had a problem with the work that was done through his firm, the President was not interested in investigating the problem for himself.

Especially considering the attention that was paid while the work was in progress, I was disappointed at the indifference that was shown when a problem cropped up afterwards.

Used Walker Bros to replace roof a few years ago and the workmanship was excellent. Decided to have them install new windows and a door and again the workmansip was superior. Blaeron explained everything in detail and was meticulous in every aspect.
Very happy and highly recommend.

Roof project remove and replace require components associated to roof. Rebalanced roof intake and exhaust ventilation to improve roof longevity..Crew was very knowledgable, meticulous and detail oriiented to the project. Walker contracting should be proud of staff as they are very knowledgable and look after customer. Recommend and explain why component should be included in project.
Looked at other companies and compared what was included and not included, showed what a company really should include. A good company do not take short cuts for the longevity of a project.

They did exactly what they said they work going to do. They were accommodating with scheduling. They were fast, accurate, clean, with no issues to date now about a month later, and not worried as quite sure if any there warranty is solid.

I am very pleased with the roofing job done by Peter & Greg Walker Contracting. They explained in detail what they would do, what material they would use and when they would start. They were on schedule. Their employees were very hard working, pleasant and they were praised by my neighbours on their efficiency and cleanliness.
