    After posting on this app he got back to me right away with contact information. We had set up a time and date that we did have to reschedule but he still made it out the day after. The work he did was exceptional and the work that was done for the price i felt was good.

    I initially had a great experience with Donovan. I needed to rebuild a handicap ramp for my home. Donovan was responsive, built a great ramp, and his price was very reasonable. In May I asked him to replace several windows. I provided him a significant deposit with the expectations the windows were to be delivered in two to three weeks. It's now mid September, I have no windows and Donovan has stopped communications. Very disappointed with the man and would no longer recommend him.

    I had a great experience with Donovan. I needed to rebuild a handicap ramp for my home. Donovan was responsive, built a great ramp, and his price was very reasonable. I would recommend Donovan not only for his work but based on my experience I found him to be honest to deal with.

    We had issues coordinating the work several times and price was immediately more expensive as soon as he "saw" the job.

    It took a while to connect, but we hired Donovan based on good reviews. Like most roofers, he was very busy but he made time for us to come out and work on our roof. He came out late in the afternoon and stayed late to finish the job. He gave us an explanation of the work that he did and even took pictures before and after. He pointed out some follow up work that needs to be done, and gave us assurance that he stands by his work. I would definitely recommend Donovan if you are looking for roof repair. Very reasonable price and is easy to work with.

    Would highly recommend!
    Came out the day I called. Called me to let me know he was going to be a little late. Checked out the problem - was able to repair it on the spot! Reasonable cost! I saved $550 from an extimate I had gotten from someone the day before (not from Thumbtack!)

    Great work. Excellent price.
    Donovan came out right away to seal some vents on my roof. While he was on the roof, he let me know of a few other things that needed some work. He did the extra work at no extra charge. He was very friendly and professional. I would definitely recommend him for your roofing needs!

    Repaired Fascia and Soffits
    Donovan repaired some fascia and soffits. He did an excellent job and came in at half the cost of other bids. He wasn't able to complete the job as planned due to a delay in another job and the weather.

    Prompt and helpful
    Mr. White conducted a thorough inspection of the exhaust fans and venting, assisted in cleaning and evaluated the situation for short-term and long-term solutions. He was very helpful.

    Donovan made short work of a small project. Very pleased!
    I hired Donovan based on his fair bid and positive reviews. He removed a partial chimney surround and hip, and patched the roof, all of which went well, although I think it was a little more work than anticipated. He completed the job within days of his hiring, with some delay due to difficulty in obtaining the matching shingles. His work was timely, and appears well done. I am very satisfied with the job Donovan did, and would hire him again.

    Donovan was very nice, knowledgeable and showed a great pride in the work he did. He was very quick to follow-up and got the job done in a very timely manner. I would use him again based on his performance on this job. His pricing on the chimney/roof repair was very reasonable.

    He came looked and told what was the issue. It was something that I could. I was glad to pay him for his time and travels since it ultimately was cheaper. He offered to do it. But since I am low on money he gave good counseling on what to do. I would call him back for other projects.
