As part of a home remodel, we decided it was time to remove an unused chimney that was running up the middle of our 100 year old home. After reaching out to several roofing companies that were highly rated on Angie’s List, Giron was the only one who was willing to come look at this relatively small job to give me a bid.
I spoke with their receptionist on a Friday, and by Monday Jose - one of the owners of the company - was out to take a look at the chimney and give me a bid. He showed up on time and was able to quickly determine the scope of the job and gave me a bid on the spot, which was very fair - less than I was expecting it to be.
They were able to come out within a week of that to begin the project. During that time, a huge rainstorm revealed a small leak in the roof. When Jose came back to begin the project, I showed it to him and he offered to fix that while they were there for no additional charge.
Jose brought one of his employees, Ulysses, with him to do the work. He was very through in going over the details of the project with Ulysses before heading off to another appointment, which I really appreciated.
The removal of the chimney down to below the roof line (we did the rest of the demo ourselves) went relatively smoothly. One five-gallon bucket at a time, the debris was carefully taken off the roof and hauled away. During the demolition, there were a few stray bricks and some mortar that rolled off the roof onto the ground, but nothing was damaged as a result.
Once the bricks were gone, the hole was patched and shingled, and all the debris was cleaned up and loaded into his truck, Ulysses showed me some process photos he had taken so I could see how it was put back together because the area couldn’t easily be seen from the ground.
He started in the early afternoon, and despite taking a little bit longer than expected, he kept working after dark to get the hole patched up and then came by early the next morning to fix the leak.
Bottom line: Excellent service-oriented company. I’d hire Giron Construction again for any roofing project.
