Flat Roof with mansard style shingles replacement

Recently, we had a significant leak in our 20yr flat roof. I researched various roofing companies, many wouldn't work on flat roofs and others didn't have timely follow-up. I was referred to Earl's family owned company, E.W. Smith Roofing by a friend who also had been referred to Earl's company and was very satisfied with their work. Earl is a professional roofer, a gentleman, responded immediately to any calls /concerns raised and was a pleasure to work with. His team were friendly, insured and trained; this is especially important, as flat roof replacement can result in fires due to the torquing of the rubber to the roof, if not done by knowledgeable roofers. The work included full replacement of flat roof and mansard wall/shingles, skylight, breather vents, and additional insulation to bring it up to R52 with a 5 year workmanship warranty. Good clean up and debris removal and no fires!!! I would highly recommend E.W.Smith Roofing to anyone looking for roof repair and/or replacement work. Thanks Earl!

New shingle roof

It was a pleasure dealing with E. Smith. The crew did a great job on a roof that is difficult to access, with minimal disruption to us, and left the place spotless.

Appreciated dealing directly with owner, Earl Smith. Prompt with estimate. Fair assessment and price. On site crew very neat and courteous. Kept us informed of any delays that were weather related.
Appreciated honesty in assessing what shingles needed replacing and which did not.
Have had roof replaced 3 times over many years. This was best experience.

Roofing Replacement

We were very impressed with the recent work done by E. W. Smith Roofing. Earl Smith was prompt with his estimates and his team (Brad & others) arrived on time and worked quickly and carefully to get the job done. They even took pictures of our roof at each stage of the work. They did not take shortcuts like other companies do. After each day, they cleaned up and left our property looking very clean and neat.
Trust is very important in the roofing business and we strongly recommend Earl Smith and his team on the basis of their honesty, reliability, quality of workmanship, courtesy and competitive pricing.

Flat roof repairs

Included this company as one of 3 for quote. None seemed to agree, so I was forced to hire an engineer for unbiased opinion of condition of building. 99% of what engineer said seemed to jive with what I was told by Harold Spritzenger? who works for E W Smith. His quote was the fairest and he did not exceed it. We were prepared for surprises once the work got underway, and even thought there were a couple, he just fixed them and carried on. Not even mentioning them until we asked.

Roofing

In April 2012 I did a review for E.W.Smith on a roof and garage done by them. Unfortunately a couple of months later there was a leak in the roof. I called a couple of times and the receptionist indicated she had passed my message on to Earl, however he never called back. I had to get another roofer to fix his job. So much for warranty. Unfortunately for him he lost a job on another property we have equally as large as this one and one for a neighbor.

Roofing and downspout repair

I highly recommend EW Smith for great roofing services. We have hired Earl Smith and his company over the years to replace a flat roof and to redo our shingles. We recently had him replace our damaged downspout and his workers cleaned up and were courteous.

Flat roofs replacement

E W Smith Roofing has provided excellent customer service and professional roof replacement service. They responded quickly to a roof emergency we had on the weekend before Christmas. They planned to do the roof after Christmas but only after making sure the situation had stabilized. the crew worked amazingly well, boarding up our property with plywood so the debris would not get on our neighbours' properties. they were polite and took pride in a job well done. i would recommend this company to anyone.

Replaced eavestrough and downspout

I contacted E W Smith Roofing based on positive reviews. Earl was great to work with and fully explained what he would do. His quote was competitive and thorough. The crew doing the work were great and did a very neat installation. They were very polite, worked tirelessly, did some extras and cleaned up very well before they left. A day after the work was done we had a torrential downpour and everything worked great.

Based on my experience I would highly recommend E W Smith Roofing.

Shingles and flat roof on 4th floor

This is a town house with four flours so it was very difficult to find a roofer who was interested in the job. This company not only competed well in price compared to the other companies who were willing to quote but they completed the job when scheduled and on budget. I would highly recommend E. W. Smith Roofing.
