Estimates for our roof replacement were anywhere from 7200 to 9800 among the 8 or so contractors we talked to. Martino was toward the higher end of that range HOWEVER I wholeheartedly believe it was the best overall value. Let me explain why.
1) Martino offered higher quality materials in their estimate – A 30 year Owens Corning shingle, a synthetic underlayment, double length ice block along edges and put in every valley of the house and smart vents. ALL the other contractors offered basic materials like lower grade shingles, 15 pound underlayment, etc. 2) When looking over the roof, the gentlemen performing the estimation asked about concern spots (we had a couple leaks that we wanted to address) and identified the fact we had special venting needs because of the low overhang of our roof edges. Martino was one of two companies to identify those issues (something which I independently confirmed before getting estimates).
The roofing crew showed up promptly in the morning and left practically at dark. They worked very hard all day for two days (it was a crew of six or so). They put down tarps all around the house and were very careful not to damage plants or the landscaping. They also went over the perimeter of the house several times to check for debris, trash and nails. Once the work was done, a gentleman from the crew walked around the house with me to discuss specifics about the roof, the work that was done, and the methods employed. He was also eager to answer any questions I had. He was patient, respectful, and knowledgeable about the work performed. Several hours later, a supervisor showed up to perform his own inspection on the roof, going over it in detail. He was also eager to answer any questions and discuss the work performed.
To summarize: You may get a slight sticker shock from the initial estimate, but compared to many other contractors it’s a much higher value. Martino offered higher quality materials and offers a significant warranty for the work they perform. They paid keen attention to details about what was needed to do the job right and to do the job well.
