Vinyl Siding Installation Review

Dear Jim, I want to thank you and your crew for the excellent job you did siding my house,as well as for your patience working through the many delays and difficulties caused for you by the other contractor who built the addition to our house. As you will remember,this job was started in March of 2010 and through no fault of yours finished only today. Through our long association, I have come to respect everyone in your company,and felt quite comfortable opening my home to all of you. I have found you all to be reliable,trustworthy,fair and honest,as well as competent and diligent in your workmanship. My property looks great,was cleaned up completely,and having your guys around was a pleasure. My request that no one smoke on my premises was honored strictly and everyone was always courteous and helpful. Please feel free to have perspective clients call me for a reference and I will be happy to have them visit to inspect your work on my house. Wishing you every success,Dottie Prudhomme 31 West Long Drive Lawrenceville, NJ 08648

Description Of Work: We have had Ameri-We-Can Roofing and Siding do a number of jobs for us. They completely rebuilt our barn roof, installed gutters on our house and barn, helped us with some carpentry projects and other things.
Member Comments: Things could not have gone better on any of the things that Ameri-We-Can did for us. We purchased an old, dilapidated farmhouse with a large barn and some outbuildings in 2012. It took us a lot of work to renovate the property. At each stage, we interviewed multiple contractors. Some contractors we hired were good, some were not. Ameri-We-Can stood out as exceptional, which is what prompted me to write this review.
When interviewing roofing contractors for the garage and barn roof, Ameri-We-Can had the best price by a significant margin. At first, we were wondering how they could be so much lower than the other quotes, so we interviewed Jim Novak on the details of the proposal. He had all the facts ready, down to the smallest details. Hired!
When it came time to do the work, Jim showed up on time with a highly skilled crew. They completed the work on-time and to a standard of perfection. There were no mistakes. The equipment he used ensured that the job was done quickly and safely.
There were two funny things that I remember about this job (Jim has done multiple jobs for us since). First, we had the roof done in October 2012. Given the large size of the roof, Jim suggested that it might be a good idea to use extra strong hurricane straps. Less than two weeks after the job was completed, Hurricane Sandy came through and destroyed many roofs – but not ours! I did not consider this in advance, but Jim did. Second, for a long time, our property had a lot of construction activity going on. On a regular basis, we would have to scan the ground for nails or other sharp objects that could damage a tire – or a foot. Jim’s crew did such a spectacular job on cleanup that his areas were cleaner after the job than before! I never found even one nail left behind.
I think Jim saw that we were struggling with the scope of the project that we had taken on, so he went out of his way to connect us with good resources for other parts of our project. He also followed up a few times after the work was completed to make sure that we were satisfied and that there were no issues that he could help us with.
I would, and do, recommend Ameri-We-Can very highly.

When installing chimney flashing it is a good idea to install a cricket behind the chimney to divert water away from the chimney.

Shingle & Color Match Roll Roof Replacement

 

New shingle and color match roll roofing by Ameri-We-Can Roofing & Siding Ewing N J .  Roofs really look great when you can match the color of the roll roof to the color of the shingles. When Installing a shingle roof the pitch of the roof must be a minimun 3/12 pitch what that means is that for every lineal foot you travel horizontally the roof must have a 3 inch vertical rise. I just won a contract in Chesterfield N J because the salesman told the customer he could roof a less than 3/12 pitch if they used ice shield on the complete low pitched roof area. Manufactures won’t cover the material warranty if the right material is not used for the right application,also its against the state building code to use shingles on a less than 3/12 pitch.  I was willing to bring  the roofing manufacture representative in to prove to homeowner that the sales representative  was not using the correct roofing application for the job. The homeowner at that point hired me for my knowledge and paid more to me than my competitor due to our expertise. Needless to say cheaper is not always better. Some companies get to big looking to make a profit that they lose sight of what really means the most ,and that’s giving the customer the best job possible. When searching for a contractor I strongly recommend using someone who has a good rating with the Better Business Bureau.

Roof Replacement Part 3

Shingle roof replacement Ewing Twp N J

Roof Replacement Part 2

When having a new roof installed its always a good idea to remove the old shingles or roll roofing. Here are a couple reasons why, check condition of exiting roof sheathing make repairs as needed,check condition of roof flashing make repairs as needed. When installing new roofing materials its a good idea to have a solid deck to prevent blow offs from strong gusts of wind. I was in Ewing Twp N J 08628 yesterday to check a leaky roof, what I found was  a patch of missing roof shingles . I believe its a wise decision to have your roof inspected  and gutters cleaned twice a year by a qualified roofing specialist,the reason I say this is you pay to have the gutters cleaned and while the roofer is up on the roof they can check the roof take pictures if they find problems. Problems can be repaired quickly before damage escalates .The home owner is getting the roof inspected for free,while the contractor is servicing the gutters win win situation for all.
