I was impressed that they had 4 installers which included a supervisor working along with them awesome teamwork. They all worked like a symphony! I was so happy they placed canvases all around the perimeter of the house so that the nails would not go all over the yard. I did not have any junk to pick up or get rid off. They also fixed one suffix corner that was not properly installed by someone else. They were so friendly, I ended up cooking spaghetti and meatballs lunch for them! I recommended them to my friends. I called them yesterday 10/5/2020 about a water stain in the dining room's ceiling. Bill came this morning. It turned out it was from cracks in the chimney. Bill took pictures which showed the problem. It explains why I heard rain drops coming into the fireplace. Thank you again Bill!read less

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
