I just used Imperial Roofing to redo our roofs. This is the only time I ever had a roof done so limited experience. I think they did great. They showed up when planned, completed on time, kept everything clean, and we have no leaks. Mike was easy to get a hold of when I had any questions. Good luck!

Does anyone know an architect that has experience with roof decks?

Do you suppose these shills really think we're that stupid to take the "personal recommendation" of a 1st time poster, or are they idiots who just discovered the internet and think this ridiculous crap works?

Hi Everyone,

I can personally recommend " RSB Construction LLC "
http://www.rsbgeneralconstruction.com/

They happen to live right in front of me for the past 15 years, But i KID you not. These Guys are Proffesionals and can handle any job size.

I used them twice already. One time for personal emergencies at home & most recently had my small commercial place redone. They painted, installed new shelves, got rid of all the old furniture, completely renovated my place from the inside....

Prices were cheap, they did come out to me and give me an onsite estimate which was a bonus cause everyone else i called wanted a deposit over the phone ???

Keep in mind, i requested Newark Roofing Contractors & Rsb Construction showed up. They drove from Elizabeth and gave me my free estimate which i gladly accepted...

check them out....

they come to you everywhere in New jersey from what they told me... i personally had them service me in Elizabeth, new jersey & Newark, New Jersey...

OMG is this thread depressing, especially combined with the other threads with more recent inputs. There isn't a single roofer recommended by more than one person with only a few posts who hasn't pissed off another customer.

So far my takeaway is either Capital or S&S. They've pissed off some people, but seem to come through more often than not.

It's Capitol not Capital, the same company that the thread starter had problems with. Let's hope you don't suffer the same fate.

We just used Roof4Roof. Excellent work, great pricing. And they use a portion of all proceeds toward new roofs for deserving families.

I used a firm called Reliable Roofing twice on two different buildings for complete tearoffs and new rubber roofing with closed-cell foam insulation underneath. Price was lower than most others and work was perfect. No leaks, no hassles. Don't have contact info handy but you'll find them-

About a year ago I had capitol roofing replace my roof. Since then it's leaked quite a bit. They've made several visits back to my house with no results and no real suggestions or ideas.

I think I need to have another roofer look at the roof.

I will not use S&S. The came to check out my roof when I was first looking and they came across as incredibly incompetent.

Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Ummm. no.. I have done my own roofs in the past and have had other roofs done by contractors. I have a pretty good handle on what the cost should be. This was the last property of mine that hadn't yet a complete tear off / rebuild. I was hoping the roof would make it though one more year, but it was not to be.

Given that this was a 2 week+ long project and involved a fair amount of structural and excavation work, the price was good.

I could knocked the price down by a 1/4 or a 1/3rd using uninsured guy with day laborers. Roofers pay obscene liability and workman comp rates.

Sorry to have been out of touch. S&S did the roof perfectly. I do feel that you have to sometimes call Seymond a bit to get him to finish up the last elements of the job. He also installed multiple windows for us in the house, vented the kitchen externally and had one of his guys do some tiling work in the kitchen. If I remember correctly the total cost was 15k to 16k.

As noted, our roof was not just at the end of its life, it was actively falling down on our heads in the middle of winter. The culprit was flat pieces of glass posing as skylights on our flat roof. The cost of the roof replacement included 5 domed skylights.

Giving S&S Roofing a 'thumb-up' for the job they did on a rather difficult project.

The original scope of work was to replace about 1,100 sqft of flat roof, install a new catch basin on the drain (original was too small), repair & cap a chimney that was deteriorating, remove a skylight, and build a new roof hatch.

I picked S&S because the price was right and they did masonry work. The latter turned out to be fortunate as hidden damage to the masonry parapets was found when the roof was ripped off. S&S was able to repair the areas where the mortar and bricks had basically disintegrated from a 100+ years of leaks.

Turns out this building never had a tear-off done in its 120+ year history. Their were so many roof layers that the joist sagged in places. You couldn't notice the sag because more roofing material had been added to re-level the roof.

The roofing was modified bitumen installed on a new deck of pressure treated plywood. Due to the extra material cost of PVC and EPDM, I decided to stick with bitumen. A white roof coating will be added later after the bitumen has cured (probably add it next spring).

Since S&S did a good job on the main roof, I had them write up a change order for a roof extension in the rear. This roof has given me a lot of trouble over the years. It was an extension added sometime I think in the 1920s that was never done right when it came to integrating the roof into the main building. S&S came up with an innovative way to solve the leaking roof beneath the deck issue. They also managed to excavate through blue-stone to install a new drain pipe and replace an undersized drain in the ground floor patio (had flooding issues during heavy downpours).

I should also add that S&S used good materials. For example, they used copper flashing instead of aluminum, as copper resists corrosion better.

S&S also had a good plaster guy who has been repairing the water damage in the apartments.

Total cost: $22k. No more leaks.

All City Roofing did an excellent job at a reasonable price.

They were accommodating, friendly, reliable and they guarantee their work.

Decent people who did an excellent job using superior materials.

I am using S&S which so far has done a very good job on a really difficult roofing project.

The project is still in progress. I will give a more detailed review / report once the work is complete.

Lets put it this way, ultimately went badly enough that I don't want to slag him publicly for fear he might do something crazy.

I'll send you a PM.

Does anyone have a roofing company that they could recommend? My building is looking into potentially having the roof serviced, if not replaced altogether.

Thanks!

Has anyone used Imperial Roofing and Construction ?

I need a new roof installed and they were recommended to me, but there is scant information or reviews online.

Brewster, who are you using? I just read about an exterior building company in North Bergen called Hansen Brothers. They do roofs, windows and siding. They're PSE & G certified --whatever that means.

I'm going to hold off referring them until the job is done.


brewster,
How did the job go?

The electrical stuff was just stupid if you have a 5th grader's knowledge of electricity, but the bathtub through the floor is too close for comfort. I've taken down ceilings and looked up at very compromised joists holding up cast iron tubs.

Well there are many contractors that go out of business. I am interested in making accurate estimates/guesses . We all have to eat. Trust me I do not work cheap, if you want to call it pricey or any other term I accept that. I will not say anything about your contractor, I am sure they are good people. If you have a leak call me but as I have learned anyone up on the roof works hard and I wish you the best of luck and a long term roof.

Cheers Here is one for you
