Very hard workers that were able to put a brand new roof on our 2 bedroom home in one day. We now have a quality roof that's brand new. Bill Jackson is respectful and very ethical. This is why I like working with him too. This is the 2nd time we have had work done with weatherproof and they do quality work for roofing always. Bill Jackson is easy to talk with concerning all the work and details.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
