Roof shingles replacement

It took a while to get the roof done but it took only 2 days to complete and from I see, it's pretty good. Before I bought into it Mark was kind enough to explain the different materials and how it helps with the roof ventilation. Danny came back to completely check off everything and even replaced one of the plastic rain spout. Overall, service was great.

Thank you for the kind words. You're quite right, it did take a while to get to your project. The positives were that the install was smooth and now you'll have the peace of mind that no matter what storm comes, you're safe and protected!

Thank you for choosing Markelangelo's!

My Roofing Project

If you are reading this it most likely means you're looking for a roofing company. Well I can tell you that working with Markelangelos was one of the best decisions I made. The owner Mark came to give me a quote and I really liked how upfront and honest he was with me. Clearly Mark wanted to help me and he took the time to listen to my needs first before offering any suggestions. He never pushed and this is definitely a person you can trust.

Once the project was underway there were a few items that needed to be sorted and Danny addressed all of them in a very timely manner and everything was taken care of. You are going to love working with Danny because hes friendly and gets the job done.

I highly recommend using this company, I can guarantee youll be satisfied with their prices and results.

Shingle replacement, very satisfied customer

We would like to share our great experience with Markelangelo's Inc who we used to replace our shingles on our townhouse. My wife and I chose Markelangelo's for many reasons. For years, we have paid close attention to neighbours when they had their shingles replaced, knowing ours would be due sooner than later. We were particularly impressed by the jobs that were done by Markelangelo's, noting their clean and organized worksites. When it came time to get quotes on our roof this year, we received several quotes from different companies, but were most impressed by Mark, the owner of Markelangelo's, and his professional and honest attitude therefore we were confident in our final decision to hire Markelangelo's for the job. On the day that our shingles were replaced, we were again impressed with this company's work and the professional attitudes of the workers. They paid close attention to protecting our property and addressed any of our needs in a timely and professional manner. They took time to discuss with us details to watch for in the future due to our home being a townhouse and sharing a roof. The shingles were delivered by a separate company and there was an issue that arose. When we brought it up to Danny, the operations manager for Markelangelo's, he was very timely in resolving the issue for us in a most satisfactory outcome. Our roof looks fantastic and we have peace of mind with the warranty included. Kudos to the entire team at Markelangelo's. You have all lived up to the many reasons we chose your company and we will not hesitate to recommend you. Sincerley, Marty and Debbie Gagne

Roof and attic insulation

We were in contact with Markelangelo in early May to fix the insulation problems in our attic. Mark who came to give us the quote also explained that the vents on our roof were mixmatched and could not circulate the air appropriately. After some research and multiple quotes from multiple vendors, we decided to go with Markelangelo as they were the only ones to mention that the roof vents were also a huge problem.
Before we got around to doing the attic/roof work, the derecho storm hit in May, and we noticed some roof shingles had lifted. I immediately called Mark back and he put me on the list for emergency repairs. Danny the roofing specialist came the next day and evaluated the damage, which was significant, because the roof shingles had been installed wrongly the last time they were replaced. He took multiple videos on the roof and showed us the wind damage, and explained the poor work of the previous contractor (hired by previous owners), and how the roof would be damaged at every following strong storm and that it was going to start leaking sooner than later.
We decided to replace the roof entirely and went with Markelangelo as they were the only ones to take the time to explain to us like real people what the problems were and how to fix them. Our new roof will be correctly installed and guaranteed to resist to high winds.
Fast forward a few months and the weather has cooled enough for them to do the roof and attic insulation. They did both at the same time, going through the roof to do the insulation, which meant less hassle and debris compared to going through the house. Danny supervised the roof replacement and insulation work and all the workers were professional. I especially enjoyed interacting with Andi at the head office. She is a gem.
We are highly satisfied and will be recommending Markelangelo to everyone we know.

roof replacement

Had the roof replaced (large, high roof with a steep pitch). The team was friendly and fast with the install and I really appreciated the talk prior to the beginning of the job and the overview after it was finished. I also appreciate the attention taken to clean up the site and care during the work. I would highly recommend this company for your roofing needs.

Roof Replacement

I am currently looking across at my neighbours roof where there are 2 workers removing shingles. There are only 2 pieces of tarp in the front yard and, as yet no waste bin. When Markelangelo's did our roof 2 weeks BEFORE the storm in May they arrived early with at least 6 workers who spent the first hour spreading heavy duty tarp around every side of the house. They also used 4 x 8 ft sheets of plywood tacked together as A frames over all of our garden. This was far beyond my expectations. They literally blocked sunlight front entering our
windows with all the protection and nail/waste protection they placed around the house.

The worked performed was continuous and professional. They answered our questions as to progress. They didn't curse and swear (at least not out loud) and they didn't blare music for the entire neighbourhood. By the end of the day there must have been 8 or 9 workers on site - our roof isn't large. They told us of two minor spots to be completed the next day which they did. They perform a thorough inspection and sweep both days after their work. Danny arrived a couple of days afterwards and did another thorough inspection of the work and a further so of the property for nails and debris. He then spent 15 minutes reviewing the warranty and telling us how to deal with any future issues that could arise.

For anyone reading this I'll recap from our beginning I had 7 companies give quotes. Only 2 actually recommended that we sit together and review the quote (MARKELANGELO'S was one). Some companies said I didn't even need to be there when they looked at the roof - I suggest people avoid these. Most quotes where similarity priced, but Mark's included all the premium materials from their shingle maker whereas some others were a mix of cheaper underlay, starter shingles, and caps. I had a couple a requests for additions which
Mark accommodated at no additional cost.

So from the beginning to the end I felt my business was valued and that I paid a fair price for high quality work. As mentioned this was completed 2 weeks before the May storm in Ottawa. Our roof is perfectly ok.

I must say Pete, it has been a while since we've received such a personal and detailed review. We really appreciate the time it took you to put your thoughts down for this review. We work hard to give our customers the roofing experience they deserve and, with your testimonial, our hope is that everyone who isn't sure about Markelangelo's reads this and chooses us! We really want people to think about roofers as hard working, polite and trustworthy tradespeople, and your review gets us closer to that goal. Thank you very much for choosing Markelangelo's. There isn't a storm out there that can go against a Markelangelo's Roof! Plus, we will still answer the phone in 10 years when you have a question or concern!
