Another really nice review from a homeowner in Virginia Beach :
After receiving multiple bids for my roof replacement, my wife and I felt the estimates were too costly. We continued to search and found J Montes on a home improvement referral site. J Montes was 10th and last bid for roof replacement. On our first meeting, Jon is very professional and courteous without pressuring me to sign the contract. The bid was very competitive. Of note, Jon was one three contractors who said we need a cricket. This is a small roof addition to prevent water running into our chimney.
We requested several references to evaluate his company. I drove past these homes and roofs looked great! I was able to speak with several home owners and all had the great praises for his company. When reviewing the contract I requested several statements modifying the contract. Building from past experiences, if it is not in the contract; it may not get done. Jon fully understood my approach and had zero problems with the statements.
When selecting the color and style of shingle, Jon gave his opinion and several choices. We kept the samples for a few days and finally decided our choice of shingle. We requested an upgrade due to the modest cost giving us a thicker shingle and five more years of antifungal look.
The day before installation we were told the crew would arrive after they finished their current job. I had no problem with this request. The materials arrived before the crew. When the crew did arrived they quickly went on the roof to prepare for material placement. Because of this, they did not put protective covers around the property. After a short period the work was stopped and the crew picked up all of the debris. When the property was then protected and the roofing continued. At the end of the first day, the crew meticulously cleaned the property.
At 0700 the next day, the crew started protecting our property before starting on the roof. By lunch time our roof was completed. It looks GREAT!!! All of the debris picked up.
I was very impressed on the team work of the roofing crew. They hustle with very efficient movements. During the job a trailer was parked in my driveway to collect all of the roofing trash. When the driver came to collect the trailer he pulled the trailer forward a few feet, got out and looked around and collected nails, roofing scraps, paper that did not make it in the trailer. Without one moment of hesitation, I recommend J Montes!
