Last week I called a roofer ( a Mississauga roofer ) to fix a portion of the roof gutter and a down pipe that became loose over winter.
The next day he showed up, I pointed to the gutter and the pipe that was loose and asked him to fix it.
He went on the roof and I went in the house believing that he is fixing the problem.
Half hour later he calls me outside to show me that he removed some shingles and that he thinks that I should replace the garage roof and the flashing and also install a roof heating cable.
I was surprised, because that was not what I asked him to do, but I asked how much will this cost ?
He said that he will send an estimate.
The next day the estimate arrived: $ 8450.00 plus tax. ( the gutter or the down pipe are not on the estimate ).
I did not call him back, but the next day he called and said that he can reduce the price to: $ 5950.00 plus tax.
Now I was really worried, because now I am thinking that he did damage the roof.
This is when I looked at www.baeumlerapproved.com and called All Stars Roofing Inc.
Andy ( the estimator ) came over the next day, looked at the roof from the ground, then, went up on the roof and examined the condition of the tiles and the installation.
The verdict was that the garage roof does not need to replaced for at least 2 years.
He said “ I am not going to sale you something you do not need “.
As he went up he noticed that the gutter was loose and before he left he fixed it.
An honest, caring man ( very rare, very few left this days ).
Now I know who to call when the roof needs to be replaced.
Thank you Andy ( All Stars Roofing Inc 647 808 4044 )
