Roof repairs and eves trough replacement

It was an absolute pleasure dealing with this company , our contractor was Raeny Destefano and he is excellent. He kept us up to date every step of the way. He knew exactly what had to be done and it was completed when he said it would be done. We are very pleased with the work provided by this company.
Everyone who we came in contact with were efficient, prompt, and the clean up after the work was spotless . Would not hesitate to call upon them again . I highly recommend "Let it Rain."

Project

Had work done....very poor communication. Frequent delays. No one knew what was going on. Work eventually done not to satisfaction as promised. Very disappointed in this company. Have not had such an experience working with anyone on a PAID project.

Excellent result on Roofing Job

Everyone in our neighbourhood has had the roof done over the past couple of years. Fortunately, ours lasted a bit longer. That said, most of the companies I saw made me nervous. Only about 20% of them wore safety harnesses and several did not install the shingles correctly, even according to my basic understanding of the process. I also gathered that many companies are fly-by-night or otherwise unhelpful in the long term. I heard about Let It Rain (LIR) on the radio, and looked them up here and on Renomark. We had about five estimates done by various companies. LIR's estimator showed up on time and was the only one to park legally. That might seem like a small thing, but the attention to detail was consistent throughout the process. I was given accurate and honest information and advice based on my actual needs and desired price range. The estimator gave addresses of other, local homeowners who had work done by LIR. When I spoke to them, they remembered him and their experience with the company. They told me that their dealings with the company were professional and that months/years later, the workmanship had held up in every way, as expected.
The materials were delivered on time, and work began on time, as scheduled. The installers were extremely polite and responsive to any questions raised. They wore their safety harnesses and appeared to install the roof correctly, according to my understanding of the process. They installed an extra vent to ensure that the attic was properly ventilated, as explained by the estimator. At one point, it appeared to me that one small area was slightly uneven, and they redid it immediately. The completed the job on time. The clean-up was excellent. As we have small people and animals here, I went over the whole property with a rake, listening for nails. I only found six, which I consider remarkable considering the amount of material removed and cleaned up. Apart from that, there was one tiny shingle fragment and a strip of plastic wrap. They removed the bin the same day. (The bin was on tires, so it did not damage the driveway.) The swept the driveway and removed everything they could reasonably be expected to find. I point these little things out to contrast our experience when the neighbours on either side had their roofs done. In both cases, large chunks of shingles fell on our plants and damaged them. There was a bunch of plastic left on both lawns, several full shingles, nails, and handfuls of grit from the old shingles. I checked carefully and not a speck was left on our neighbours' lawns by LIR, and I was extremely pleased with the way our property was protected and respected.
One of my biggest concerns about having this work done was that the company would stand behind it and repair any damage that might occur in the process. It would appear that when our skid of roofing materials was delivered by a third party (not LIR), that company apparently accidentally broke a brick on our garage with the forklift prong. I didn't notice it until about two weeks after paying for the job, but it was quite clear what had happened. I called LIR, explained the issue, and sent a few pictures to show the damage. By this point, I shouldn't have been surprised, but they were extremely responsive. Again, I had paid and consequently had no real leverage, but they carefully noted my concerns and a supervisor responded within 48 hours with a plan. I can't say exactly, but the repair was done within about a week from my first contact with them about the damage. In fact, they not only fixed the brick, but patched a crack in the garage foundation, as well. The affected area literally now looks better than it did before the damage occurred.
I have rarely been treated as well by any company, and each person I interacted with at LIR gave me the same courteous and effective service. We have since had some very heavy rains during which I checked in the attic to be sure, and everything seems to be working properly. Given the way everything was done, I should not need a new roof for many years. However, in the process of having the brick repaired, I learned that LIR does other types of projects and renovations. While I'm not in the market for that right now, they will definitely be my first call in the future, should the need arise. I have told our family and friends about our exceedingly positive experience with LIR. In fact, some of our neighbours have asked about our experience and the price. As it turns out, they were quite angrily unsatisfied with their experience and results. We paid only very slightly more than they did for very similar roofing jobs. Money very well spent, in my opinion. If I'm not mistaken, they think so, too!

Attic insulation and bathroom ventilation fan.

Let It Rain installed attic insulation to help reduce condensation and provide energy savings last December (didn't get around to posting a review until now). In addition, although we have a window in our main bathroom, we wanted a ventilation fan installed in our bathroom to be utilized during the winter months. The price of the job was exactly as quoted with no hidden surprises. What a difference this has made! The condensation has greatly reduced and it has made a major difference in the overall temperature of our home.
The staff was extremely polite, friendly and very professional!
Great work!
Great work.

Raving about Let It Rain

'I could not be more pleased with my recent and past experiences with Let It Rain. Earlier this year I asked them to come to the house to repair some winter weather related damage to my eavestrough and gutter guards and to install snow guards on the east side of my house. During a recent rain storm, I called them back again to address some issues with my eavestroughs and downspouts. Their crew came promptly and identified and fixed the problem during some rather heavy downpours. They even took 'before' and 'after' pictures and videos to show me what the problem was and how they fixed it. I used Let It Rain many years ago to replace my roof, skylights, install snow guards on my west side roof and install new and adjust some old copper eavestroughs and downspouts. In my view, they do just what their customers need and then some, not what will make them the most money! Everyone in the company is professional and very customer focused. I can't speak highly enough of my experiences with Let It Rain and I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone!

Roofing

I hired Let It Rain to insulate my attic a few years ago and was so impressed that I chose them for my recent roofing job. Once again, I couldn't have made a better decision. The crew was prompt, polite, and professional in every way. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this company.

Front cedar canopy and stair railing project

I have never had an experience that actually motivated me to write a review....that is until my latest reno project led me to Let it Rain. I researched many companies and received numerous quotes for the job. I decided to go with Let it Rain because I was very impressed with the foreman Gary who took the time to answer my questions and provide different options; not to mention he was also competitively priced. He stuck to his word the whole way through the job and it was this trust that made entire experience rewarding and NOT stressful. Gary was very attentive throughout the job and always keep us up to date on how things were progressing. He delivered with flying colours...my wife and I are amazed at how much this improved the look of our home. I would most definitely recommend the folks at Let it Rain (especially Gary and Steve!) who were class acts and very professional. Thanks guys!

Roof replacement

Everything, from office interactions with friendly staff, estimate and completion of project was handled in a first class manner. I inspected the job site very carefully after completion and could not find one single piece of debris....a very good clue to the professionalism of the team.

Roof Analysis done well

Let It Rain did an analysis of our roof and attic, for the purposes of energy saving and renovation prioritization. Work was done well, on time and on budget. Report delivered was clear and helpful.

Shingle Roof: At Let It Rain, we install a wide range of roofing shingles, including cedar, slate and fiberglass asphalt shingles. In addition to protecting your roof, our shingles can also improve the aesthetic value of your home because we offer a wide range of shingle colours and profile options. Insulation & Attic Upgrades Attic or ceiling insulation and roof ventilation are often ignored but have a large impact on the comfort of your home and the life of your roof. Without proper attic insulation and balanced ventilation, your attic will allow heat to escape, creating damaging moisture and ice build up. Let It Rain knows that attic insulation is an important part of the roof system. With a reliable and functional attic, Let It Rain ensures that your roof installation lasts a lifetime.

SPECIALITIES
What you need to know: The Roofing System consists of three components that should be balanced to work efficiently. The Shingled Roof acts as an umbrella shedding water and snow off the building. Insulation separates the attic from the house interior creating a comfortable home environment and reducing energy consumption. Ventilation moves cool air into the attic and hot air out. It extends the life of the shingles and provides a comfortable living environment
