It couldn't have gone any better! I called Larry's service at like 7:30 AM because we noticed some water droplets in the master bath. By 9:00 AM the crew was here and on the roof shoveling off the snow and taking a sledge hammer to the ice. Problem solved! That's remarkable service and when he showed up to get his check, I hugged him for being such a good friend! One of the things I like about living here is that you can count on longtime friends when you're in a jam! Truly, Larry was there for us today!Kevin D.
We are writing to commend your crew on a roofing job well done. Mel, Steve, Chris, Joe, “A Wall”, and Seth were very professional, hard-working individuals who took great care to ensure that the job was done right, and with minimal impact on our property. Their attention to sealing the Skylights, where we had previously had some water infiltration, was especially appreciated. You should be very pleased to have these men representing you, as they give the homeowner confidence that quality is important to the company. We will not hesitate to recommend you to anyone interested in roofing work.Joe & Allison McCoy
Mindy and I are so pleased with the outcome of our roof. I really enjoyed the learning experience and I appreciate the patience the crew had with me to explain the process. They were very respectful of our presence and we enjoyed theirs as well. The skill exhibited, special requests, and cleanup each day were outstanding. Please leave your sign up for as long as you want and feel free to use us as references. Thank you!Dick & Mindy
Dear Dan & Larry, Thank you for doing our roof. Mary Jane said it’s a wonderful roof & she was up in the attic and everything looks clean & neat. Thanks for the pristine look. Thank you once again – we will be sure to recommend you to others.Ron & Val
We are very pleased with the roofing job on our garage by Pidgeon done this past February 2012. They provided a very competative price and an extremely professional crew of installlers to get the job done well and on time. The roof looks great. I would not hesitate to recommend them.E. Egert
Weather permitting, a common period from contract signing to job start is 2-6 weeks. This can vary a great deal depending on the time of year and the contractor’s backlog. Job start delays and postponements are a fact of life in a trade which is highly dependent on weather. However, the roofer also has a responsibility to you to be straightforward about his availability right from the start. He should also advise you on a timely basis about any changes in the schedule originally set.
Some New York Fingerlake region local ordinances require permits be obtained prior to the start of roofing work in both new and some reroofing jobs, depending on the locale. If a permit is required, discuss it with your roofing contractor who will obtain it and how it will be obtained. If your contractor agrees to obtain the permit, make sure your contract states this clearly.
Your roofing contractor should know if a permit is required in Auburn, Skaneateles, Syracuse, New York for reroofing jobs. You can also double-check with the Cayuga or Onondaga county building codes officer to be sure.
