Hand Hammered Roofing Excellence

I posted my request on HomeStars and almost immediately got a response from Michel , the owner of The One Roofing. I checked his reviews which were consistently excellent. A quick and reasonable estimate followed, to replace the shingles on our A-Frame 4-season extension. Michel helped me find the best quality, matching shingles and he purchased and delivered the materials. His estimation was exact and very reasonable. I paid half up front to buy the materials and the second half after the job was completed to my satisfaction. He arrived sooner than expected and tarped the worksite well….the flowerbeds were protected, and we did not find a single nail or piece of debris after the job was finished. He transported the waste to the local dump. He showed me how the choice of shingle mattered if I wanted to avoid high wind blow-offs….a strong untearable fabric nailing strip. He showed me the evidence of a poorly-adjusted nail gun driving nails clean through the shingle and thus greatly increasing the chances of blow-off. He layered the ice-water shield and HAND HAMMERED quality nails into the shingles. We hardly heard him…. no noisy compressor , no work radio blaring, no gunshots. He took the initiative by checking and finding that our ridge vent had not allowed enough space between the sheathing to ventilate the cathedral ceiling properly. He enlarged the spacing and recycled our metal cap; this will lengthen the life of the shingles under our high sun Hand Hammered Roofing Excellence

He enlarged the spacing and recycled our metal cap; this will lengthen the life of the shingles under our high sun exposure. Michel single-handedly completed the job in a day. He also provided before, during and after pictures. Michel is a true craftsman. He is an experienced professional, honest and affable; a man I could really trust. He is also fluently bilingual. I therefore thoroughly recommend Michel and The One Roofing for roofing jobs such as garages, sheds, house extensions and repairs on full roofs. You will not be disappointed. Thanks Michel.
