  • The Green Roofer fixed our leaky roof after we first moved in with a temporary patch! He saved us! We called on him back again when it was time to replace the roof. Great work, very friendly and within my budget! Great price. Amazing people to deal with. I've recommended them
    to 6 people so far!

  • I had the Green Roofer replace the roof on both my house and separate garage. This was a large job; 122 bundles of shingles, 12 sheets if replaced plywood and the installation of additional roof venting. They were professional, and got the work done quickly. They clearly explained the performance differences of the different material options and recommended a number of changes to the roofing system including adding additional water shield and changing to closed valleys etc.. All recommendations made a lot of sense for my roof and it was clear that they have a lot of experience in the trade. Overall, I am extremely happy with the work they did.
