They have an amazing team and are well deserved to be certified as GAF Master Elite Installers. Right from the start Bill was a pleasure to work with. His knowledge of all the specifics and wise demeanor made me feel comfortable instantly. I met with other great roofers as well all of whom came highly rated. After digging into all the details I knew Weatherproof Roofing was the right choice and Bill was great through my lengthy decision process. Kyra in the office is a true delight as well and was key in helping my wife and I decide on the color that would look great on our house. Now I have an amazing new roof that looks absolutely beautiful on my house. Plus, I have the peace of mind knowing my loved ones, belongings, and house are safe and secure.

Enter Bill Jackson from Weatherproof Roofing and he confirmed that the previous roofer had tarred in the existing ridge vent which meant there was no way the hot air could escape. Within a week, his team replaced it with a new one and WOW...the attic was at least 15 degrees cooler! Great job. Fast and thorough!read less

He came out for two consultations, free of charge, because we were not sure whether we wanted to rehab our tile roof or put on a new shingle roof. In the end we elected to do a new shingle roof and we are so happy that we did. The house looks amazing! We also had Weatherproof's carpenter replace all of our water damaged soffiting and he did a great job. There was a small run of soffiting in an obscure area that was missed and I didn't even notice until a month after we had paid in full. I called Bill and his carpenter was back out the next day! During the removal of our previous roof, the guys covered all of our plants with tarps to keep them from getting covered in tile pieces. This is getting long, but I told you I couldn't say enough good things! We got three quotes and Weatherproof was not the cheapest but they also weren't the most expensive. I'm sure that the difference in price was easily covered by the return trip for the missed piece of soffiting, but I would pay a little more for the piece of mind that comes from knowing that the job will be done professionally by a company that stands behind their work. Thank you Bill and the whole Weatherproof crew!read less
