Charged me nearly $600 for a leak repair and did nothing. I had to call another roofer, who is now replacing the entire roof, and he showed me where Mears did exactly nothing other than stuff an 8 INCH X 12 piece of plastic in a small gulley. New roofer was disgusted at me being charged $600 for doing nothing. His first attempt, he apparently did nothing, second attempt, he apparently put in the small rectangle of plastic. Leak got worse and cost me hundreds in interior ceiling repair. I am having my roof replaced now, the new contractor pulled up the old one and showed me where Mears did exactly nothing other than put in that small piece of rubber/plastic in a gulley on the roof. Minimal effort to lift a few shingles clearly showed me, a non-roofer, exactly where the leak was. He didn't even do that. Unbelievable - avoid!Aug 6, 2015

- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I read a lot of articles, scour the web and talk to my suppliers about new products. I am always looking for new products that will save my customers time and money. Our company also participates in workshops put on by Contractor's Edge and some of the suppliers.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?I went through an apprenticeship program for several years after I turned 18. I later went on to become a Fireman/EMT and would still do roofing work on my days off for extra income and to help out friends and family. I took a corporate job with a healthcare company but when our economy claimed that job I went back to what I had always enjoyed.....taking care of customers one roof at a time! My wife and I decided to get licensed, bonded and insured to make an honest run at our own business. Being a family with two kids (one being a toddler!), running our own business and being part of our community is not always easy but it is always enjoyable.
