I first met with Cory Benoit when I started shopping around for a roofer. I live in a semi and I was responsible for gathering a few quotes; as was my neighbour who was also searching for quotes. Between the 2 of us we obtained approx 8-9 quotes for having our roof redone.
Cory was incredibly professional; of all the roofers who I called he spent the most time up on the roof. When he came down he spent a decent amount of time in my house talking to myself and my wife about our roof and the overall service they provide. Without me asking he gave an incredible amount of detail; references, BBB certificate, Insurance certificate. He was straight forward and honest about what to expect.
After I meet with my neighbor to discuss the various options we had I recommended using Cory, the price was right down the middle of all the quotes we had recieved. Also the fact that Unionized Contracting has a clip working with Mike Holmes really helped seal the deal. I asked Unionized Contracting to come back to my house so that they could meet my neighbor and based on that we signed the contract.
The job was started exactly when they stated it would. The job took 2 days to complete, when it was done there wasn't a spec of dust, nails or anything left around. The work looks awesome, even my other neighbors who had their roofs done earlier came out and complemented the work that Unionized Contracting did on my house. (My house looks so much better than theirs).
I'm hoping that some pics get uploaded to their company website to show the work they did. Its awesome.
A nice plus was the fact that our roof has a dual colour thing going. Didn't even know we would get that when we picked the colour. It looks awesome. If you're looking for someone who'll do exactly what they tell you then hire these guys. I slept very comfortably during the big thunder storm a few weeks back as the roof was completed 2 days before hand.
- Approximate cost of services:
- What could this company do to improve their services?
- Perhaps introduce payment via credit card so we can collect points.
- Any advice to offer fellow homeowners facing a similar project?
- Definitely shop around and take time to learn what needs to be done. Don't trust people who just give you a quote looking up at your roof from the street. Using Unionized Contracting will give you piece of mind.
