New roof

Al's installed a new roof on our house around 1 1/2 years ago. We were extremely satisfied with the quote, the workmanship and efficiency of the crew, and the clean up afterwards. Just recently we had an eaves-trough problem. We called Al's and Jim was round the next day to fix it. We would recommend Al's to anyone needing roof work.

Replace shingles

Dave and team gave me a detailed, written quote, and delivered exactly what was expected, when they said they would. My home is a semi, and I wanted to match the new shingles to my neighbor's; while Al's could not guarantee an exact match, they came remarkably close, and I really appreciated that they made the effort. Will highly recommend Al's Roofing to friends and family.

Leaking roof

We live in a semi detached and our neighbour and I requested several quotes from different roofing companies and Al's Roofing was several thousand less than two of our quotes and less than half of a third. I reviewed the written estimate with my contractor who had recommended another company and he saw no difference in the offering other than a great price and said he would be interested in using them himself. The crew arrived on time, lay down tarps and plywood to protect our plants, were polite and completed the work in the day-and-a-half as stated. No problem recommending them at all.

Brand New Roof

I would like to say that I was most impressed with the service and final product I received from Al's Roofing. The quote I received was exactly what I paid which was several thousand dollars less than the other quotes I was given by other roofing companies. As my roof was leaking Jim made the roof his priority to be completed in one day. The roofers were here exactly at 8:00 in the morning as promised. They ensured that tarps were put down and began stripping the original shingles. They were most professional and extremely spotless in their clean up. I would most certainly reccommend this team! Great Job and Great Team of workers!

Flat Roof

I had a very poor experience with Al's Roofing. I had a leak on my flat roof. The new roof they installed had a leak as well. When I tried to contact them, they were slow to respond, despite leaving many messages. They initially denied responsibility. They did fix the roof but the job looked messy. I would not recommend them.

In reply to Al's Roofing, I am submitting a copy of the invoice. This is the right company.

Oh, yes, Ron, I certainly remember you.
Number One: I remember explicitly that upon completion of the job you informed us that you "do not pay taxes". We had to amend the bill and ended up paying the tax of $180.96 out of our own pocket.
Number Two: The roof was indeed installed on Dec. 22, 2009. At the time you were renovating the house and none of your workmen spoke English. We received eight separate calls from you on New Year's Day 2010 starting at eight o'clock in the evening and continuing until midnight informing us that the roof was leaking and you wanted immediate action. The following day you arrived at my home at 7:30 in the morning to insist on our crew showing up. We arrived at your home on the 2nd of January as we had indicated to you but could find no problem with the roof. You indicated that you were leaving on holiday but your wife would be available. At this time we were shown photos and corresponding documentation by your home inspector indicating that the roof above and adjacent to the one we had replaced also needed replacement. You again called in on January 15, 2010 and we again returned to your home. We entered the house and found that the steel supporting post inside the house was wet. We sent a crew up on the upper roof and indicated to you that this was where the problem was coming from. We did a repair which you DID NOT PAY FOR and also installed electrical cables for you AT NO CHARGE. At this point you had the adacity to ask us to price additional work for you. We informed you that we would honor the warranty on the roof we had installed but wished to have no further working arrangements with you.
Documentation that passed between yourself and our company is on file in our office and available to anyone who wishes to substantiate this information.

Roof leak

Approximately 7 years ago Al's roofing installed a roof on my bungalow in East York. This was the second roof they installed for me. In December 2011 water started to run down the wall in my bathroom. I called Al's roofing and they responded quickly. Because of the time of year with cold temperatures, snow and rain their investigations took longer. After finding nothing specific on the roof they went into the attic. That allowed them to trace the leak and they discovered that an animal had scratched at the shingles tried to pry away part of one to get underneath. It was enough to allow water to penetrate the roof when it rained.

I would have no hesitation recommending them for roof work. Their staff are also a pleasure to work with.

There was no charge for this service. The original work was approx $3,000

Replace Roof

Al's Roofing came highly recommended by a neighbour of ours. After speaking with several other contractors, we chose Al's to put on our new roof. Our new roof looks great and we were very pleased with the quality, service and price. The employees were very friendly and professional.

Roof Replacement

Al's Roofing gave us a quote that was competitive and detailed, and the price did not change during the roof installation. They completed everything in their estimate and more, on time and on budget. No surprises! I would highly recommend Al's Roofing to anyone in need of a new roof.
