I met Dave and we talked about all the aspects of work to be done. We met a few times and then the congregation met to discuss the options provided by Dave from the company.
He answered all our questions and even had a Sunday night phone call to answer more (now that's dedication and customer service).
Dave went above and beyond to get us the right roof for our needs, he also was on point with the estimated costs as well as the time frame for work to be done. We were expecting a month out for work to be completed but there was an opening and Dakota the field supervisor contacted me and was ready to begin work within a week.
Permits were pulled and the work began.
I (minister) asked questions and stated things that were concerns to me, and Dakota answered and if needed took care of those concerns of mine. Dakota even stated that if I wanted the crew to wear pink shirts (LoL), he would go buy them, that's how much he wanted to please us the customer.
I grew up in the construction field, and I know all the aspects of construction. The crew that Dakota sent out to do these roofs, did an excellent job! I was watching and they really preformed like a well-oiled machine. All three buildings needed wood repair and of course me watching (off and on), I knew this. I saw the problems and the crew ONLY replaced what was needed to be replaced.
I told Dakota some of my past credentials and said I do not want any frivolous repairs and that we as a congregation would not pay for that type of work (not saying the company would do that, but growing up in Florida and many hurricanes and dealing with roofing companies, well you know, some bad apples spoil the rest). Anyway, he assured me this would not happen and as I said earlier, I was watching (but not directing/going through Dakota etc) and Dakota held true to his word. Not one piece of wood was replaced that didn't need it!
On one building the old plywood was wavy and that was because truss blocks were not used where the ends of the plywood meet, thus causing no way to nail said plywood and the ends were just floating. I witnessed his crew remove the bad plywood and then access the attic to install wood blocking from truss to truss to support the new plywood. Now that is top notch work and going beyond to make the job right, and what some roofing companies in the past have neglected, hence, the blocks were needed.
All three roofs are now up to code and we can rest easy.
All three roofs were completed in three days and that is a lot of roofing material and a lot of work for two out buildings (1500sqft) and a big church building.
The crew also came back on Saturday and cleanup up every bit of trash and just did a excellent job!
Dakota came by to do a final once over and walk the roof, everything was fine. We then proceeded to write the checks, but before that, we requested a release of lien for the material and work done. Dakota showed me the release of liens and we wrote the check, then he sent the releases to us. It was a pleasure working with Matt, Dave, and Dakota on this job and the professionalism by all.
THEY DID IT RIGHT!
If I ever needed another roofing job, guess who I'm going to use, yep, "The Roofing Company," (Matt, Dave, and Dakota).
If you want to take a look at their work, then you can swing by the building here in Pam Harbor.
Thank you again for a great professional job, I couldn't have done it better, nor directed a crew better.
We really appreciate the peace of mind and the extended warranties to keep that peace of mind for years to come.👍
The crew began rolling in early. Jose and Chris kept us updated throughout the day. This crew worked their tales off! What impressed me the most was not only their work ethic but their workmanship! From start to finish, they worked like pros, in calculated steps, all in unison - each worker with an identifiable job at hand. It was pretty cool to watch.
In fact, as the trucks pulled out, workers were picking up any stray nails left behind under their vehicles to protect our vehicles from punctures. Chris’s crew (Jose and workers) definitely deserve a 5 star review as well! . #GoingTheExtraMile
We are extremely happy and highly recommend The Roofing Company!
I would and will recommend them to everyone!
I was very impressed by the cleanliness as they worked and when they were done there was not a single piece of debris anywhere. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Kimba answered the phone and took it from there. She had a technician scheduled and called back to inform me of the date of repair and followed up to verify service was completed correctly.
Regarding the technician, Shawn was outstanding. He did his due diligence and identified the problem with a leaky Lanai roof. He developed a resolution and solved the problem.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
You will receive a labor and manufacturer warranty for your new roof. Your labor warranty will be written on the contract and is dependent on the type of shingle you choose. In general, economical 6 years, preferred 7 years and premium 8 years unless stated otherwise on your contract.
Economical shingle has a 25 year manufacturer warranty and the preferred/premium shingle line offers a lifetime manufacturer warranty.
• $100 to $400 for minor roof repairs
• $400 to $1,000 for moderate roof repairs
• $1,000 to $2,000 for major roof repairs
This depends on the complexity of your roof and the materials used. However, on average, we can complete your roof in one day.
There’s an entire checklist we send our customers prior to installing a new roof. Some things that are often overlooked are satellite dishes, antennas, and solar panels. The original company who installed these products must be called to remove them properly prior to the roof installation. However, if you plan to dispose them afterwards, we can remove them for you.
Some other important things to consider are tarps to cover your pool and HVAC unit.
Florida weather can often be unpredictable so it’s not uncommon for an unexpected rain shower to occur during a roof installation. Your shingles attach to plywood, also known as roof decking. If it rains while this decking is exposed it will absorb the water and cause swelling. That’s why it’s important to cease all work if it begins to rain. We will then cover the decking with tarps to avoid water damage to your decking. We will only continue the project once the rain has completely stopped.
This question is hard to answer without a professional doing a proper roof inspection to determine the cause of the roof leak. If your roof was installed correctly, has no overhanging vegetation, and less than 15 years old then there’s a good chance all you’ll need is a repair. However, if your roof is over 20 years old and has multiple missing or curled shingles then there’s a good chance you’ll need a roof replacement.
The short answer is, yes. Architectural shingles offer a higher wind resistance than standard shingles. This premium feature is necessary in Florida where we often receive hurricane force winds. Furthermore, architectural shingles look better than standard 3-tab shingles due to added thickness and dimensions. This will increase the curb appeal of your home which will in turn, increase the value of your home.
There will only be a deviation in agreed price when there is unforeseen bad wood underneath your shingle or tile roof. We allocate a certain amount of plywood per contract. If we need to replace more bad wood than expected we will notify you of the situation before continuing so that you are not surprised by the added expenses.
In Florida, roofing contractors are required to complete a contractor’s examination along with passing financial and criminal background checks. Afterwards, the company must have workers’ compensation insurance, public liability insurance, and property damage insurance before they can legally work on your roof. It’s important to check these insurance forms to make sure the roofing company you hire is legitimate. If a company quotes you far lower than other roofers in your area that may be a sign they are not fully covered.
This can often be difficult to foresee unless you have a professional conduct a roofing estimate. There are however several clues that you spot yourself. The main one is age. If your roof is more than 20 years old then there’s a good chance it’s time for a roof replacement. This doesn’t mean that younger roofs are immune to problems. If an unqualified contractor didn’t follow proper procedure, used cheap materials, shingled over shingles, or didn’t replace rotted decking than there’s a chance a newer roof could need a replacement.
One thing you can do is inspect your roof with binoculars from curbside. Pay close attention to curled edges, lifted, cracked, or missing shingles. Furthermore, smooth dark areas indicate the granules have worn off the shingle. Those are just a few of the visible issues that often result in a roof replacement. It is also recommended to go in the attic on a sunny day and check the underside of the stack vents and chimney to make sure no light is bleeding through. If light is shining through than that is an indication the flashing has failed.
Also, while you’re in the attic it’s a good idea to inspect the underside of the roof board for any signs of water damage or staining. During a rainstorm is another time to check your attic to make sure there is no soft spots or moisture accumulating.
You can expect an average life expectancy of 20 years for architectural shingle roofing systems. However there’s no rule to this estimate. A lot of factors such as vegetation, location, weather, and humidity can create unforeseen conditions. Also, if you choose a cheaper 3-tab shingle than you can expect a life closer to 15 years. When your roof is approaching this age it’s recommend to check your attic monthly for roof leaks during the rainy season.
A tile roof on the other hand will have a higher initial cost but will give you a significantly longer life expectancy. A well maintained tile roof can last up to 50 years. However, they are a bit more fragile against hail and debris from extreme weather conditions.
The next option is a metal roofing system. Here you can expect to pay 2x more vs. a shingle roofing system. However, you can expect a life expectancy 2-3x longer than shingles. Some comments from metal roof owners: #1. Poor cell service due to the metal roof. #2. Better energy efficiency. #3. Hail storms may dent the roof. #4. Noisy during rainstorms.
This step requires you to use your research abilities. First, I would visit Google and type “roofing companies near me” and start recording the contractors in my area. Once I created a list, I would then check third party review websites. Places where the company is unable to delete bad reviews. These would include, Google, BBB, Facebook, and Yelp.
Take note of not only the review star rating but the amount of reviews. I would rather go with a company with 4 stars and 100 reviews than a company with 5 stars and 10 reviews. An established business shows it’s competent and qualified.
Next, read the bad reviews and see how the business reacted. No business is perfect. What matters is how the business responds to these bad reviews. Do they correct the problem or do they ignore their customer?
After this research has been conducted you will only be left with a couple contractors. At this point you should call to see how far they are out on estimates. During the rainy season it could be weeks before someone can make it out. If they can come out in a timely matter then finally ask if they are fully insured with workers’ compensation insurance, public liability insurance, and property damage insurance.
Standing seam metal roofing is the latest favorite in residential roofing in Clearwater, Florida. Formerly it was used more for commercial roofs, but recently more homeowners are opting for it. The standing seam metal panel, as the name denotes, has raised or vertically standing seams on its side. The portion in between is flat. The standing seam roof has several benefits compared to other roofs. 1. Hidden fasteners The...Read more
