In June 2010, I had my house re-roofed by Papco Building
Supply using steel shingles manufactured by “ Future
My roof is large and complex with gables, changes of pitch
and an attached lean-to. The existing cedar
shingles were 25 years old and obviously needed
Replacement’ so I obtained two quotes from local roofers
and was considering them when I received a flyer from
Papco offering the Future Roof steel shingles.
I am cautious about mail offers and out-of-town contractors ,
But the actual product checked out on the web , so I asked
for a quote.
Surprisingly , the final price we agreed to , matched the
quotes for asphalt shingles while providing a much better
roof in a style and colour that were a perfect match for
our house; so I accepted the contract.
I am an engineer and have built two houses and am aware
of what can be hidden by a hastily installed roof, so I
watched the roofing crew closely during their first week
and asked questions about the installation.After this first
week I left them to it as I had confidence in both their
ability and their work standards.The initial estimate was to
do the job in about a week but it worked out to nearly a
month due to not only occasional bad weather, but also to
unforeseen problems and repairs with the structure of the
old roof .Despite this , the crew made no complaint , continued to work to standard and was very obliging in
doing several extra jobs on gutters and the like, at no charge.
To summarise; Papco provided a high quality and
affordable product with the “ Future Roof “ steel shingles
and their roofing crew did an excellent job in their
installation. They are a family affair who have worked for
Papco for nearly twenty years, I believe. I have worked
with many contractors over the years and this crew were
likely the easiest I have had to deal with.
From my experience with them , I would recommend
Papco Building Supply and their roofing crew to anyone
requiring a good roof at a great price, and wishing for a pleasant experience during the installation
