Shake guys are the most professional roofers I have ever come across. I talked to multiple companies and Connor at Shake guys was the most detailed oriented person I spoke with. He made me feel confident from our first conversation and my roof is now the best in the neighborhood. Highly recommend!

The Shake Guys Team, managed by Sal, was absolutely superb. In only three days, they replaced the entire roof of our 6000 sq ft house. The team worked seamlessly together, removing the shingles section by section, preparing the roof and then installing the new shingles. As a rule, there were 9-12 roofers working in almost military precision in 12 hour days to install the new roof. Great care was taken to prevent any of the old shingle debris from damaging the house or the grounds. 1-2 employees were constantly engaged in cleanup. Bottom Line, we were EXTREMELY IMPRESSED with Shake Guys and would recommend both Sal and his team without the slightest reservation. They worked very hard, were very conscientious, were very courteous, were very organized and very neat. No customer could possibly ask for more. Lou Hughes

We are very happy with our interaction with Shake Guys. We were abruptly dropped by our insurance company, specifically because we have a cedar roof. No matter that it was only 7 years old. Our new insurance company inspector thought he saw some loose shingles and requested an inspection. Enter Ethan at Shake Guys! We had them out to identify any issues and inform us about any maintenance needs. They provided us with a free comprehensive inspection fully complete with drone pictures to help us know of any concerns. Ethan helped us identify best next steps to keep our roof in great condition. In addition, he was super communicative and service oriented, something I highly value. I mentioned we were working with Shake Guys to a realtor friend and she said she always refers people to them for roofing needs. They have won my business going forward!

I could not be happier with either the Shake Guys or the work that they did for me. Originally, I contacted them to provide the yearly treatment for the cedar shake roof on my recently acquired house. Various issues arose and we agreed that replacing to the roof with more sustainable, fire resistant, fabricated materials would be the best choice for my needs. Their patience with the process, the HOA, and weather have been beyond expectations. Because we had numerous delays from my end, I worked with many of the staff at Shake Guys between my first calls in August 2023 & completion in April 2024. Josh and his team were amazing in their work & interactions with me.They did a beautiful job, left my property in pristine shape, and worked with numerous other trades to coordinate completion in less time than anticipated. I could not be happier. Each contact has been terrific

I would highly recommend The Shake Guys. Our insurance company dropped us because of our existing cedar shake roof. So to get reinsured we decided to go with a composite shake roofing material.This was not an inexpensive project. But Chris walked thru all the options of the various brands and gave us addresses of completed projects to go look at. We chose to go with the Brava Shake as it was the most realistic looking. Sal our PM on the job was also great as was the installation team. All the crew members were polite and VERY hard working. We are extremely pleased with the outcome and this we bevthe last roof the house will need.
