I’ve had other roofers work on my roof as recent as last year and the fact that I needed a roofer this year says it all. Needless to say, I’ve been very skeptical about roofers. However, hiring American Brothers GC was the best roofing decision I’ve ever made. Give them a try – you can’t go wrong. I was very impressed by the roofing work they did for me. They were thorough, very professional and very accommodating. They went above and beyond to ensure the job was done right! I am so pleased that I’ve already decided to hire them for another job.

Initially Tom missed our first appointment because he messed his calendar. Then we rescheduled for next day. They showed up on time. They examed the roof carefully, took pictures n explained to me the repairing plan n the cost. Job well done.

Mr Roman has been one of the best contractors I've found on this app! After going through three plumbers he finally diagnosed the problem and completely fixed it so that the sewer ejector system is working and no more flooding problems. He did the work in a day, repaired any holes in the Sheetrock so that it looks brand new and cleaned up after his work. I hired him to solve some other problems that other plumbers had given up on and he tackled the jobs. I will consider him my go to call whenever I need help on my house from now on!

A1 fixed up a section of my roof that was damaged by a falling tree. They were prompt to show up and examine the work from both the roof top and as well as crawling through my attic space. Estimate provided was clear and, I thought, was very reasonable. The fix was completed on time and the work place was all cleaned-up. Very happy with the results. I will definitely use them agai.

Eduardo Manito arrived on time for all aspects of my reroofing job; he guaranteed his work, had 20 years in the business and was very knowledgeable about the serious leaking I had. He told me that the second course of Timberline shingles had been improperly installed resulting in very wet underlayment, which was rotting in some places. My roof was 38 years old. His crew of 6 men replaced 20 sheets of underlayment with new plywood, installed the 27squares of new roof after removing both courses of old shingles in one day.They replaced all flashing and installed it correctly. They cleaned up the yard and answered all my questions, were always PROFESSIONAL, and gave me a very good price for the job. (They beat all their competitors pricing) I called 5 references of five recent jobs they did and all praised their work. I really had no complaints and I will use them again when I do my siding.

Ariel team did a fantastic job crafting a custom solution for some phone booths that we installed in our office -- they had no roof, hence no sound control/quality, prior to Ariel taking on our project. Joe & team provided excellent service and were a breeze to work with. Hoping to re-engage on future projects.

I found Thomas and his son to be both friendly and professional. They arrived on-time and ready to work, as scheduled. Thomas took pictures of the work they did on the gutters (reinforced installation, sealed gutters, and installed gutter screens). In addition, he checked the roof and took pictures of that, as well. When he came down, Thomas physically showed me the damage and gave me my options. They were very fair and reasonable. I was so impressed with all aspects of their work, I've scheduled them to come back next week and do my roof. Two of my neighbors liked what they saw and hired them too. I would highly recommend their business based upon my First-Hand Experience - in addition to what I've read about them, to date. Thanks Very Much and Continued Success To You Both!

Elmar was very professional and nice throughout the whole experience. From beginning to end, he was very responsive, honest, and fair. He gave us a good price on custom-made gutters which we hope will last us a long time. He was very flexible with our schedule (we were dealing with overall roof renovations) and came to work in terrible heat. I really appreciate hard, solid work, and I got just that. I would highly recommend Elmar to anyone. Great job for a fair price, and a very nice, professional person! Thank you!

We had a new roof, gutters, a fence and some other small home maintenance work done. The craftsmanship of all of the work, especially the roof, was superbly done. It's a colonial with particular edges which required hand made solutions to bring it back to its natural glory and that is exactly what was done. We were clients and sometimes students, as time was taken to explain the process, materials being used, alternate solutions etc to ensure that we were comfortable with the job. We would and we have recommended All Remodeling and Construction to others.

New Image Roofing replace my roof last week. They were hard working, and very professional. Chris was always available to answer all my questions and kept me in the loop at all times. His roofers were on time and cleaned everything up at the end of each day. I would definitely recommend them to anyone considering replacing their roof.

I submitted a request for quotes last night. Several contractors indicated interest in our tree trimming job. We went with Lee partly because he indicated he was going to be in the area on another job. He and his coworker did a great job cleaning out an old tree that had significant overgrowth and dead branches. They mulched on the spot and did nice job of cleaning up. My wife and I are both pleased with the results. I would highly recommend Leon. Not only did he do a nice job, he was friendly and personable.

I have a flat roof of a 4 family house in Hoboken that keeps leaking ever since I purchased the house 6 years ago. I first found out about Wisebuild Construction from my neighbor and figured I would give them shot to fix my problem. David was the first person I got a quote from and I never looked back. He was by far the most professional and honest compared to any other guy who came for an estimate. He explained everything to me before the job started, and great communication throughout the process. Never shy about providing the full information of the material he used. David and his team did a GREAT job on a complete replacement of our roof. Have not had any leaks since, and the roof looks great. I would highly recommend Wisebuild Construction as your roofing contractor. My son-in-law also works in construction and I know what a professional crew works and looks like. Extremely satisfied and have recommended to my friends and family. We also got our 25 year warranty for our roof and could not be happier.

It's been a pleasure to work with Nick and his crew. We needed major exterior work done, new siding, roof repairs and more random work. I have worked with a lot of contractors, and so far Nick’s crew have been impressive. They have the experience and knowledge to give us good recommendations and helped us to save money by reducing the scope of unnecessary work. Their fee are also reasonable, we would have spent much more if not for their experienced inputs. Thank you, guys! Will definitely hire them again.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What is a standing seam metal roof?

A standing seam metal roof may be a strong, durable, safe choice when you’re considering metal roofing installation options. A standing seam refers to the raised seam where the sheet metal roofing panels join. Traditionally, shingles and roof panels lie flush to the roof, making them more prone to rust or penetration by water at their seams. In a standing seam metal roof, the raised (or standing) seams run vertically from the roof ridge to the eaves, with no horizontal seams. In addition, the fasteners joining the metal panels together are concealed, providing even fewer opportunities for water or moisture to build up. The cost to install a standing seam metal roof will depend on the type of metal you select, the size of your roof, and the cost of roofing labor in your region. Materials will play a major role in your metal roofing installation costs. If you select standard galvanized steel, the cost per square (100 square feet) might be in the $150-$300 range, while a high-end choice such as copper or zinc could be between $1,000 and $1,500 per square. Here is one example of cost:   

  • Standing seam metal roof: $300 per square to start, including materials and labor.
    • A 30-square roof could cost $9,000 or more.

Can a metal roof be installed over shingles?

Metal roofs are durable, environmentally friendly, safe and budget-friendly. If you’re considering an update, metal roofing installation doesn’t have to mean completely removing your old roof. In many cases, metal roofing can be installed over your existing shingles. Research building codes in your state, as many require that after two roofs have been installed, all roofing materials must be completely removed before a third roof can be put on. This protects your home’s structural integrity and your family’s safety. Carefully read contractor reviews and choose someone with extensive experience with metal roofing installation. One concern when installing metal over shingles is that over time, condensation can build on the shingles and cause the metal to rust. This will lead to rust around the panels, making them more likely to come loose in a storm. Nationally, the average cost for metal roofing installation ranges from $6,000 to $20,000. The wide price range represents different roof sizes, different types of metal, and the cost of labor in different parts of the country — and can also include the cost of removing an old shingle roof prior to installing the metal. As a line item, the average cost of removing an old roof to prepare for installing a new roof, plus adding new roof decking, costs on average about $45-$75 per square (the pro roofer’s term for 100 square feet), depending on the pitch of the roof. Always make sure you have a clearly written contract and a warranty on both the labor and the metal.

 

How much does it cost for a metal roof?

Metal roofing installation is an attractive option thanks to metal’s long lifespan, hardiness and fire-retardant properties. Nationally, the average cost for metal roofing installation ranges from $6,000 to $20,000.There are different types of metal roofs, each with their own installation needs and materials costs. Roof size also affects your metal roofing installation costs, as do regional labor rates. Roof size is measured in squares; one square equals 100 square feet. Here are some examples of the average cost for a metal roof:

  • Standard metal roof: $120-$150 per square to start, including materials and labor
    • A 30-square roof (a 3,000-square-foot roof) could cost between $3,600 and $4,500 for a typical three-bedroom home.
  • Snap-Loc metal roof: $200-$225 per square to start, including materials and labor.
    • A 30-square roof could cost $6,000-$6,750.
  • Standing seam metal roof: $300 per square to start, including materials and labor.
    • A 30-square roof could cost $9,000 or more.
  • Tuff-Rib metal roof: $250-$350 per square to start, including materials and labor.
    • A 30-square roof could cost $7,500-$10,500.
  • Mid-range metal roof package, including all accessories: $300-$500 per square.
    • A 30-square roof could cost $9,000-$15,000.
  • High-end metal roof package — such as zinc or copper — and all accessories: $1,000-$1,500 per square.
    • A 30-square roof could cost $30,000-$45,000.
