Prior to coming out for a siding and decking job, Sherman ran through what I should expect and gave great suggestions for the job. Very reasonably priced especially considering the size of the job and was very accommodating even if there was a last minute change of plans. I plan on using Sherman and his team for other jobs in the future.Jun 27, 2017Verified
Roof Installation or Replacement
Sherman and crew seem to have done a very good job. They paid attention to detail and took the time necessary to do the work right. I never felt that they were in a rush to get the job done and get on to the next job, sacrificing quality in the process. Time will tell the true story on the roofing and skylights they installed but I feel the job was handled well by Sherman from the quotation process through loading the truck at the end of the job.May 4, 2018Verified
Gutter Installation or Replacement
Sherman installed some new gutter and downspouts on my front porch. I was very happy with the quality of his work. He used seamless gutters and the end result looked and functions great. Great pricing as well. Highly recommended.Jul 27, 2017Verified
Gutter Installation or Replacement
I had gutters installed on a newly purchased foreclosed home that probably hadn't seen a gutter on it since its earlier years. Sherman came out, gave me a reasonable quote and brought me swatches to match the color to the house. He came when he said he would, installed my gutters in the day we agreed upon, and cleaned up afterwards. I am very pleased with his work and work ethic. I will definitely refer him to family and friends. Thanks so much!Aug 24, 2016Verified
Roof Repair or Maintenance
Part of our sunlight crashed during the high winds of the nor'easter, and I asked for bids to repair it on Thumbtack. Sherman came the next day to look at the damage. He informed me that our sunlight had been installed backwards, and repaired the broken piece and turned the sunlight around, within 3 days. We were very happy with the work and the fair price.Jan 29, 2017Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?My ways of pricing vary from job to job, but at times on something smaller and more or less simple, I use a standard method of pricing the materials out individually and just adding a daily rate that my men will be on the job. Alot of contractors use a "per square" pricing system, but I've noticed in the 15 years of this industry that that price tends to come out to be very high. I'm a firm believer in a honest days pay for an honest days work, not out to get rich in a day or off one job, just to have my business name out there and generating continuous work.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I like to gain my information needed about the work to be done, and establish whether or not I feel qualified and comfortable to do the job at hand. When I know that the scope of the work is able to be done by my company I contact the homeowner /customer and schedual an appointment for an estimate, which is free. At that time I try and get on a personal level with my homeowner/customer and try and make them feel comfortable and reassured by going into depth about their issue at hand and go over various ways of accomplishing the problem the best, most efficient, and financially responsible way to complete it. I then take my information I have recorded and write up a formal estimate/proposal and then submit it to my homeowner/customer and go over every step of what is to be done very thoroughly untill there is no questions lingering in their mind, so hopefully after I leave that document with them they can think it over and choose me to do their work confidently.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have been doing roofing and siding as well as all phases of exterior home remodeling for just about 15 years, I have taken courses offered by manufacturers of the products I use on a daily basis and have taken and passed their installation tests. I am a certified master elite shingle applicator with 2 of the major manufacturers as well as Firestone certified for flat roofing Epdm materials.
