What does $12k include? How many layers of roof are on there now? I think by code maximum of 3 layers is allowed, but I think better to tear it down to the wood. Do you know the price to replace rotted wood covering - the beams or the beams if needed?

When they tear off a roof there can be big surprises!

Christine: thank you so much for the personal recommendation, we are going to call them as well as Capitol and Simpson Bros. (already had S&S out there this weekend). They were really busy at the time the initial inspection/cost estimates were made and we only asked about the skylights, but I still wish they had been like "oh, you might need a whole new roof!" But who knows? Maybe they did tell the seller/our RE agents but it was never communicated over since everyone knew that our decision to buy the house was contingent on the roofing estimate. And maybe this awful last winter had something to do with the damage accelerating in an already not-optimal situation.

Like you, we now know that we have been completely screwed over on the roof but nothing can be done but to fix it and move on. At this point all I want is an honest roofing company that will do a good job so we're not looking at constantly calling up to honor the guarantee.

I'll come back and update on who we picked and the price so people know cost estimates for this type of job. I have Angie's List, but could not find ANY of the local contractors mentioned here on there so this thread has been a lifesaver.

For your do-it-yourselfers.......


http://spec-chem.com/

I have been using their products for years. Their roof system is pricey to put down (and takes some skill). Once you get it down, maintenance is easy. their products are all water based. Just roll down (with paint rollers) a new white reflective coat every 3 to 5 years.

The white reflective product works so well I can walk on the roof deck barefoot in 90 degree weather (full sun).

To Malorytowers:

All City Roofing truly stands behind their work. I know this firsthand. These guys are skilled as well as reliable. If you have an issue, you will get an immediate response. They take pride in their work and honor their guarantee without question.

We were in a desperate situation due to an unscrupulous contractor who charged us for a roof job that he didn't provide. The result was that our inside property was being damaged by leaks and mold. All City replaced the roof in inclement weather so that we didn't incur additional damages.

They use superior materials (above home depot standard) and they provide an extensive contract that spells out what they will do.

Best of luck to you...I know how frustrating and costly a faulty roof can be.

Bumping because our roof situation has come to a head. When we bought the house we were told that the skylights (all 6 on 2nd floor) were improperly flashed and the repair cost would be between $5500 to $6000 (All City Roofing).

I got S&S up there today and he told us that our whole roof is messed up, was probably improperly installed with the recent winter adding significant damage. Seymond quoted the cost of replacing the skylights + roof at 15K. The leak in our bedroom has already created a hole, we went and looked at the other rooms today and it looks like there is more water damage.

At this point we know we are in for a 10K to 20K replacement. My concern is quality of work and the strength of the guarantee-the home is only 9 years old and we're replacing a roof! Has anyone else done a whole roof replacement/fix and have a preferred contractor who hasn't played games on the guarantee? We have the additional workmanship issue related to skylights-they're in every room on the top floor.

I've read through this whole thread and I've narrowed my search down to Capitol, S&S (Seymond) and Simpson General Contractors. My husband wants to go back to All City Roofing as well but I'm concerned that they didn't tell us the roof was in as bad shape as it was when the initial post-inspection estimate was done.

It was a couple of years ago, and my house is roughly 800 and something sq ft. The cost was about $ 2,500.00 for the house.
Also it depends on how much tear down and repair they have to do.
The price was about in the middle of all the estimates I had.
Anyway, I'm very satisfied Capitol Roofing.

Out of curiosity, how much does a flat roof rubberized roof, call it around 1500 Sq feet cost to replace? Just ballpark it for me if you wouldn't mind, I have no frame of reference and feel like it is something i'll have to get into in a few years.

This is Mark Nejmeh 732-995-3914 www.realroofers.com. I do remember this woman. She insisted that the job was already given to another contractor when I showed up even though the owner called me.

Then she starts to tell me where the leak is. I have only been doing this for 35 years professionally, I know how to find a lea

As far as being late I admit that it was a Sunday and I had some things to do with my kids. I am not perfect. The truth behind this matter is that I found it odd that a person would have the fire department come for a roof leak. Secondly the woman was just nasty . Also please note we do not give prices to tenants , we only give prices to the owners of the property.

People with agendas you cannot win.

Thanks JC list for letting me have my say on this matter.

I just redid my roof the day AFTER the election, didn't cost much at all.
I used a bunch of them Fulop & Healy signs since they are free & available everywhere!
They are very lightweight & waterproof.

S&S is the best in my opinion. He redid my roof, with a 10 year guarantee and was the cheapest of the bunch. Here is my web review.

We just got a leak and have had some folks come out to quote - so far I can only say who I would never recommend and that's Mark Nejmeh at Real Roofers. He showed up 90 minutes late with no call - and no apology. Took a 3 second look and declared it was the pipe. I told him I'd had another roofer and the fire department over (the leak caused all my alarms to go off) and they both thought it was from another location and what did he think. Suffice it to say he insulted me, implied everyone else was an idiot and refused to give me a quote (I'm the tenant, not the homeowner) and said he would speak only to the homeowner. I called the homeowner after (who are my good friends) and while his price is lower you apparently pay extra for warranty, aka he doesn't guarantee his work. The calls not mine since I don't own the place but I can certainly say I wouldn't recommend him...

+1 for Capitol. Had the same problem of a small leak (tree fell) he inspected the roof and instructed me on how to fix it myself (it was easy).

Just wanted to see if anyone had any other good experiences with Capitol or any other roofer recently? Have a small leak and need to get someone to take a look.

anyone know a roofer who will come out on a emergency basis? I got a tear in my roof membrane in a spot that throwing flashing on it won't hold for long.

Should I go with Capitol Roofing or Simpson Contracting?

I have a bid from each to replace the drain on the roof and repair the area around it. Both came in with the same price of about $1000.

Capitol will only warrantee for 30 days. Simpson will give a longer warrantee.

THoughts?

Capitol is terrific. Roofing work should be done before it gets hot; I was told that roofers are not insured if they work when the temp. goes above 80 degrees. Maybe that's an urban legend, though.

Has anyone used S&S roofers to redo a roof? Were you satisified with their work?

Thanks

Need a suggestion for a local and reputable roofing contractor. I am am having issues with leakage in my skylights. The roofer doesn't need to be directly located in Jersey City, but definitely in the area and come highly recommended.

Has anyone else in the area been plagued with a persistant leak from their roof to top floor units? Our condo association has been attempting to fix it for almost 2 years now. Contractors have even water tested - and sealed a leak, and it has not been corrected. Any advice?

I highly recommend
S & S Roofing (201) 920-6525

This team redid my entire roof, replaced 2 extremely old skylights and crumbling vents.

They did an excellent job and were extremely professional. They worked during the rain, with bad weather and other acts of nature beyond their control.

I highly recommend Seymond and his team for your roofing job.

Since this job was completed, I've had snow and lots of rain and NO LEAKS, nothing.
