Customer Testimonials

We recently completed a re-roofing of our home, plus new gutters. It is hard to describe how well the entire job was completed. The roofing crew, headed by Martin, was outstanding. Everyone was considerate, polite, and very well qualified. Martin kept us up to date, and checked to be sure we were happy with what was being done.

The job took a week to complete, and the workers cleaned up everything each day. They were very careful of our landscaping. The final clean-up was very thorough. Best of all, the finished roof was expertly done and is simply beautiful.

In addition, the gutters were installed very professionally. The mitered corners are something to behold, and the finished job looks almost like crown molding rather than rain and storm gutters. It is fair to say that everything exceeded our expectations.

Obviously, we are very pleased that we used CRC for this project, and would recommend CRC to anyone we know. We should also mention that it was a pleasure to work with Dan Kunz. He was helpful and patient as we worked our way through our roofing decisions. His assistance was most appreciated.

  1. We are amazed and thrilled! Our old, 90 year roof was a disaster... The men worked so hard, always had a smile, and Cedar Roofing staff kept in close touch with us through the process of getting the gorgeous new roof on. We are so grateful, and cannot recommend your company more highly! Thank you.
  2. My new deck is much more gorgeous than I anticipated! I like the horizontal decking (as opposed to the previous diagonal), and I've never seen such a beautiful and complex railing. The aroma of the cedar--ah, I hope it continues throughout the season. Your crews--all of them throughout this project-- were very helpful and certainly cleaned up the construction site completely. Thank you for executing this project in such a professional manner. I have used your company a few times for minor roof repairs--I would not hesitate to recommend them to others.
  3. Just wanted to let you know we are very pleased and impressed with the work CRC did on our roof. We are still looking around to see all that you've done... but the quality, attention to detail and courtesy of the crew was terrific.

  4. The entire crew was polite, courteous, and VERY hard working... It seems they beat the schedule that you provided us!... Three firms were nearly the same cost but what separated you from the other two is that you made us feel like you really wanted to do our project. The amount of contact that we had during the proposal process and bringing Matt into the conversation helped me feel that I would get all the attention that I would need on the project. It was also nice to see a office representative here overlooking the work every other day.
  5. The new roof looks incredible and neighbors have been constantly stopping to comment. Mostly, I wanted to let you know how great your teams are. They worked steady and diligently with the care given to the work as well as always being courteous. We appreciate the good work your company does.

  6. We are very pleased with the job done by you - both the quality of the materials and work done. And pleased with our choice of CRC. We were impressed with the professionalism of your work crew; dedicated to getting the job done and cleaned up, moved scaffolding out of the way every evening. Thank you
  7. The roof looks fantastic! Great staff & workers, everyone worked hard to make me happy! A couple of deciding factors for us: your reference had positive comments, thoroughly answered all my questions and made me feel comfortable with the contract terms. Keith M, worked hard to find the color shingles I wanted.

  8. "Just wanted to let you know that your roofers went above and beyond on my re-roofing project. I asked for the dumpster to be filled from the back forward, and your guys happily complied. They also saw me digging cardboard (from other trades) out of the dumpster to recycle, and the next day, all the cardboard from the roofing job was broken down and in the recycle container.
  9. Roof on our house was 20 years old.  Many roofs in the neighborhood were being replaced as a result of age others from hail.  I reached out to a couple of companies that were putting roofs up for an estimate.  In addition I try to support local businesses as much as possible, thus I called Cedar Roofing Company.  From the beginning Keith was very attentive to our needs and knowledgeable and offered options which is important when you consider the magnitude and cost associated with a cedar roof. He also shared based on size, our roof did not have enough roof vents to get the appropriate circulation so his estimate included that.  Keith knew from the beginning we were getting other bids, what put him above the others (besides the warranty which I'll get to) is he educated us on questions to ask.  In the end based on what CRC was doing compared to the others was far and away better.  Again the cheapest prices may not necessarily be the best, they were very competitive and we got more for our money.  They also are one of the area suppliers to other roofers for cedar so we were able to go directly to the source for the better quality product. Keith even invited us to their business after hours to see the product he suggested, what he picked out for us for our particular job and what to look for.  We also wanted to stagger the cedar shingles vs simply straight across which does cost more but looks so much better, he even saved us some money on that part of the installation.  Lastly Keith filled out all the warranty information for the supplier of the cedar shake so all we had to do was sign it and send it in.  In the end we got a roof that will last for 25 years and looks fantastic.  If you want a grade "A" company that truly looks after your best interests and does excellent work, you will not be disappointed in Keith or Cedar Roofing Company.  There is a reason they have been around for over 20+  years.

  11. I struggle with every trade to get them to recycle cardboard, and use the dumpster efficiently. Kudos to your crew for playing along so well.
  12. I am extremely grateful that CRC could come out and take care of some of the damming. I think it made a huge difference in yesterday's rain.
  13. Thanks to Keith for helping us navigate our insurance claim and providing excellent information and quick responses. I appreciate that we were given the same attention even when our insurance company did not cover the roof.

  21. Cedar Roofing Company once again has done wonderful work and of course will remain at the top of our list to call on for future work. The roof looks wonderful, and there have already been compliments from the neighbors. The gutters and downspouts really fit the style of the house, and the attention to detail by the crew is greatly appreciated!
  22. Keith, Juan and everyone on the team has certainly done terrific work. Keith was always accessible and a pleasure to work with. Juan always answered my questions and explain things. Everyone was flexible because we do not have a standard installation and while also preparing to insulate to attic, learned some things as we went the affected decisions. Juan's team went above and beyond by adding some flashing along a steep roof line we have and touching up some molding ...nothing of much cost to you, I believe, but required to do the job right and very much appreciated so we're all confident the roof will last.
  23. Thank you so much for the work you guys did, the roof is terrific and your workers were extremely professional and on time. We look forward to working with you in the future.

  29. It was a pleasure working with CRC for both roof and gutter replacement. Dan Kunz was very helpful and patient as we worked our way through the process of roofing decisions. Both the roofing and gutter crews were considerate, polite and very well qualified. They were very careful of our landscaping and cleaned up everything each day. The final clean-up was very thorough and the finished roof and gutters were expertly done. Simply beautiful. We are very pleased that we used CRC and would recommend them to any person looking for high quality workmanship.
