    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!

    Ben Mears Roofing was an all-day no-show for our appraisal appt. and did not call ahead to cancel, or reschedule. I consider this as being unprofessional & undependable and a good indicator of any services I would receive from their company. They do not appear to respect their customers, or value their customers time.

    Dan did an excellent job fixing our roof flashing and counterflashing. He was super prompt, and assessed the situation like a pro! He took care of the problem and honored his bid even after discovering some additional issues with another chimney. I'd hire him again with no reservations.


What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

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.
What types of customers have you worked with?
Mears Roofing specializes in laminate shingles for residential properties. It looks great, is affordable and lasts for 30, 40 or even 50 years. We also specialize in repairs of all sizes and types. We pride ourselves in getting repairs done quickly at an affordable cost because it isn't usually something that is planned and budgeted for so it can be a stressful undertaking for a homeowner.
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I was driving through an area with my wife and I looked over and said "can you see all those roofs on that street?". She replied "yes I see them". I told her "I roofed every one of them about 15 years ago". I take pride in every single roof that I install knowing that 15, 30 years from now the roof will still be protecting your home from the harsh elements season after season.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Be as detailed as possible by including all the information you can think of about your roof, issue, etc. Including your phone number and address in an email or voice message helps a provider like me help you sooner rather then later. Often times it is easiest for me to come to your house to see what the problem is or measure up the space that needs to be roofed. Other times I can determine what is needed by looking at pictures of your home online and the information you have provided me. I have been doing this a long time and understand that a professional and timely response is important.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
The work I do lasts for 30, 40 and even 50 years so everything I do must be in line with that. I have integrity when doing business; I have experience when installing and I have the knowledge to make your roofing materials withstand the sun, rain, sleet, snow year after year. I treat my customers like I want to be treated because replacing a roof can be a major decision for a homeowner.
