Not Recommended
Central Roofing & Siding Co. was hired to make three repairs to my home: replace the asphalt shingles on the house roof, replace the tar & gravel flat roof over the carport/walkway and replace the gutters/downspouts. Their cost estimate was in the mid-range of other bids received. [See additional comments under "Roofers"] Although Central Roofing & Siding Co. has strong points, their standards for workmanship quality were much lower than expected. I would not recommend this company to friends & neighbors. Here is an overall summary (covers roofing & gutter jobs):

POSITIVES: + This company will stand behind their work to satisfy the customer. The quality assurance rep (QA/Eric), contractor roofing team lead (Noe) and company owner/mgr (Terry) were responsive and offered reasonable options in correcting problems. + Installations of the flat roof "wood nailers" and the chimney & flat roof flashings were done well. + The company provided a written 10 yr warranty on their workmanship.

NEGATIVES: - The standards for workmanship quality were much lower than expected. From a distance, the work appeared to be well-done, but inspecting it more closely revealed unacceptable shortcuts that could lead to costly problems couple of years down the road.

DISCUSSION (Gutters) Two sections of the gutter were found to protrude an inch above the rake board exposing the roof decking to rain & snow. Despite the gutter contractor's opinion that these gutter protrusions above the rake board were "OK", I insisted that the gutters be repositioned to protect the roof decking. Sloppy repair workmanship -- attachment hanger screws drilled through the drip edges (instead of cutting tabs at the hangers); segments of the gutter are kinked such that it does not lie flat against the fascia board; and previously drilled holes in the fascia boards & gutter left uncaulked. I inspected the rest of the gutter & drip edges installation more closely. The drip edges on other sections of the roof either were not mounted correctly initially or were pushed out of position when the gutters were installed. I have lost all confidence in the workmanship quality of these contractors. I will either hire another company or make the repairs myself when the weather gets warmer.

A customer-focused company. A pleasure to work with, and had competitive pricing.
