"We were very worried about our roof as we’d never purchased one before. Kenny helped us to understand what needed to be done, had a very fair price and did the job exactly like he said it would be done. We even earn $100 from every referral we send his way. We’d recommend him to anyone who needs a roof."

"Our roof needed to be done quickly as there was pretty bad mold in our roof deck. Only Kenny caught it, no one else even inspected the wood in our attic. We were skeptical at first because no one else asked to see our attic. We’re glad we let him inspect it. They replaced our wood and got us a top notch roof for one of the best prices out of all the quotes. I’d use him again for sure!"
