Roofing

Exel re roofed my home in August 2015. Their work was excellent. The crew was knowledgable, organized, efficient and took obvious pride in their workmanship. Each day after work the site was well cleaned and left tidy. The quote, including materials to be installed was well explained and the price was reasonable. I would give them a strong recommendation.

New roof

Excel did a first-class job of removing the old shingles and installing a new roof on our house in just 2 1/2 days. These young men are experienced, polite, friendly and ready to answer any questions on roofing and related issues. They cleaned up very carefully afterwards. Alex did a final inspection and made minor adjustments as requested. No deposit was required and payment was only required when we were totally satisfied. We were!

Roofing

Beyond the call of duty from the most honest, hard working professional crew I have ever had the luxury of interacting with. I could not express in enough in words how happy I am with the job and the way this group works and the interaction I had.
The dedication to work reminded me of the hard working farmers from the 1930's. They cleaned up the yard each night and greeted me after work with happy smiles with a sense of accomplishment each night.
I only wish I had more projects for them because I thoroughly enjoyed having them around. My career involves dealing with vendors on a daily basis for multi-million dollar projects and this crew exceeded all my expectations and gave extra to ensure they hold a good name.
They kept a positive attitude even when working in 40 degree weather, when all the other crews in the neighborhood quit for the day. I recommend you treat them with the respect they deserve as I can assure you that you will be happy with the final results. I left them a cooler outside each day and they were appreciative of this small jester which compared to the difficult task they had to perform, I wish I could have done more for this crew. I can truly say that I felt they took care of me like any opulent Las Vegas hotel host would.
Regarding honesty I would like to say that I personally witnessed them logging out of their electronic shift tracking system early which is a testament to the type of company and and members you are dealing with.
The cost was about half what other roofers were charging and don't fall into the oh well our shingles are better game. This crew will use whatever shingle manufacture you want and they do not play any up-selling games. Simply if you want a no nonsense no games company to complete your roof, this company is my recommendation. I only wish my experience was longer and hope they expand their business to other projects I can utilize them for. I will stand behind behind this crew over any other in the city and wish them all the success they deserve in the future.

Roof

Excel just completed our roof. The job was done on time and on budget. What impressed us most with Alex and his team is they all strive to go above and beyond. Just meeting the minimum standard is not what Excel is about; they went above and beyond normal roofing practices and our expectations. Also noted was all the workers were very friendly, easy to talk to and each would take the time to explain how the work was proceeding. The last point I would like to make is crew did a complete cleanup after the job was done and they did an excellent job. I would recommend Excel to anyone who wanted a job done well.

Roofing

Excel are a really great company. I was really happy with my new roof and how it was done, and then they did my neighbours house. They ended up breaking a stone on my sidewalk and offered me $100.00 as a result without me even asking. I couldn't possibly take that amount and told them $50.00 instead which is still far more than it will take to repair the job. Alex is #1.

Job was done in time just as promised, roof looks really nice. Unlike some other contractors Excel Building & Roofing did start and complete the job in one shot, without breaks and gaps, fast and accurate, no debris left, no garbage.

Great experience! They were really easy to work with and the estimator was awesome! Friendly knowledgeable and informative! Their crew was really fast (they even finished before I got home from work) and cleaned very well. I would recommend this company to others.
