tear down and replace section of roof above my kitchen

I hired this company to strip to bare and then replace a section of roof that was old, and starting to lose shingles. Company said they gave full 10 year warranty on their work. First winter after they did the job, ceiling below the new roof started leaking. That ceiling had NEVER leaked before. I looked carefully at the new roof and noticed that there was an open hole where there should have been a shingle. Called company to come back. They sent a team of father and son playing good cop / bad cop. Bad cop insisted that the leaking problem I was having had to nothing to do with the job they did - even after seeing that a shingle was totally missing, leaving a gaping hole in the roof. I asked for compensation so I could get the roof repaired and then get the ceiling below repaired. Bad cop kept insisting it was not their responsibility. Good cop said he'd be a "nice guy" and give me half of what it was going to cost me to repair the ceiling. Their approach to me was totally intimidating.

I've just had another company in, still trying to fix the leak. This company pointed out numerous problems with the job done by EW Smith, reflecting a serious lack of attention to workmanship;

Shingle and flat roof

We had E.W. Smith replace both our pitched roof with 30 yr shingles
and our flat roof with a premium flat roof. The work was carried
out exceptionally quickly, and both jobs were exceptionally well
done. Neighbors who chose to spend less with other roofing companies had leaks in their roofs in under a year.

All in all a great job, with total satisfaction.

First Review



A friend recommended E.W. Smith Roofing to us after they had a positive experience with their new roof and skylight installation. Earl came out to give us a quote and we were impressed by his courtesy, experience and the fact that he understood our budget limitations. His quote was very competitive and he explained that it would take 2 days to finish the whole job. His crew was due to begin on a Monday morning at 9am and they were already in full swing by 8:30!! Earl let me know they were going to try to power through the whole job because rain was in the schedule for that evening. They finished by 7:30 and we're very pleased with their work. I would highly recommend Earl and his team to anyone looking for a roofer.
