Highly recommend. Reached out for roof inspection. Chad provided up to date info on time of arrival and even came early. He was extremely helpful and explained options for roof. I appreciated that he wasn’t trying to upsell me and I would definitely reach out them again. He was very thorough and cautious of my toddler when on the roof. I would recommend them to anyone in the area for an honest quote and assessment.

My experience with the Shake Guys and specifically Chad has been outstanding. After calling a different cedar shake roofing company and being put in a multi-month queue for service and inspection I called the Shake Guys. I had the opposite experience. Chad got back to me right away and we were able to schedule a visit within a week. It immediately became evident Chad is an expert in his field and he took the time to educate me on proper Cedar Shake installation, materials, maintenance and lifespan expectations. After Chad surveyed the roof and made a small repair, he provided a thorough explanation of recommended maintenance to maximize the lifespan of our 6 year old roof. We plan to continue our relationship with the Shake Guys for maintenance and repair thanks to Chad's helpfulness and professionalism.

These guys are the best! They sealed our cedar roof this summer-fair price, professional, easy to work with, trustworthy, great job. Then, we had some leaks -they happily came and inspected (totally took their time to find the problem, which wasn't straightforward). Turns out it was stucco timbers and not even the roof. Connor and Al were on their cell phones diagnosing with the hose, they found the problem after many years of roofers couldn't. Love these guys! Love this company! Refreshing to find a company so accessible, customer service oriented, pleasant to work with, honest-and their work is beautiful!

They were great. Only thing was the workers left a few tools and garbage behind in the yard. I called them and the supervisor came and picked it up.
