We contacted two roofing companies to quote on our roof. The first company did not even take the time to visit our home with samples and to discuss the project, they just sent a quote.
Krista at Mint Roofing Limited came to our house, measured, inspected the roof, discussed our options for shingles, showed us samples, showed us the underlayment as well as ice and water shield. She also informed us about how they would be changing venting and flashing with new correctly sized/type vents.
I told Krista that I had gotten one other quote and when she finished with our quote, I showed the other higher priced quote to her to be sure that I was comparing fairly. Krista's quote was lower for the same roofing work but her quote also included caulking some leaks in the eavestroughs.
We agreed right away to go with Mint Roofing because of the time that Krista took with us to explain what would be done and because, Mint Roofing was going to do a complete and thorough job, unlike many neighbors have had done. Price was not the deciding factor for us, we wanted our roof done properly.
When David and his crew came to replace the shingles, they were amazing also. They tarped all around the house to catch debris while removing all of the old shingles. They even put up boards to protect our doors and windows. They all wore safety harnesses which is a huge relief because we wanted a safe job site also. At the end of the first day, they cleaned up all the debris, swept up and even used a magnetic broom to make sure there were no nails around the property. At the end of the second day, when the job was completed, they cleaned up and even used a leaf blower to make sure any debris was removed. When David and his crew left our house, it looked as though nobody had even been there, only we now have a beautiful new roof.
Throughout the two days, David answered any questions we had and he pointed out differences in the way that our roofing was being installed versus other roofs in the area. We could clearly see the differences.
The GAF Timberline HD shingles used are beautiful. You can see the difference between our shingles and those of our neighbors. Ours look much thicker and there is a great deal more detail on the shingles. The Pewter colour is a perfect compliment to our home. Our roof was completely covered in underlayment with ice and water shield which most homes in our area do not have.
We have no doubt that these shingles will last for many decades to come.
We would not hesitate to use Mint Roofing for any future needs we have and we will highly recommend them to absolutely everyone.
