I have been involved with the housing construction/remodeling business for over 50 years, with experience in carpentry, electrical, HVAC, and handyman services; I’m your typical jack-of-all-trades. However, roofing is not my forte.
Yet with all that, my home was long overdue for a re-roofing. Additionally, the fascia around the entire perimeter was badly deteriorated. Using the phone book and recommendations from friends, I was unable to find any roofing contractors who demonstrated the knowledge and sense of caring I required, especially when it came to replacing the fascia. Two more years passed. In May 2016, I read an ad in our local community newspaper for a roofing contractor who was described as having quality service and expert knowledge in roofing. There was something about that ad that caught my curiosity. Of course, it’s only an ad, so I took the risk. I called Tim Kline Roofing and set up a meeting.
You showed up and we talked and talked – and talked! We walked outside for inspections. It was obvious to me that you did have expert knowledge of roofing. You readily accepted the added task of replacing the fascia, and explained in detail how your crew would handle this. In our discussion, you have a business philosophy of slow down and do the job right the first time. This is a business strategy that creates success, but few apply it. After signing our contract, you asked “Are you ready to be impressed?” My thought was, you’d better know what you are doing if you want me to be impressed!
Now that the new roof is installed and fascia is replaced, I want to acknowledge that the quality of the work is exceptional. From the roof install, to the fascia replacement, to the installation of all ancillaries, to the painting of the fascia, and then the clean up; your crew, led by your partner Jair, displayed professionalism and courtesy to me and my wife. Jair is totally devoted to your firm and the industry. He would stop whatever he was doing to answer questions – and I had a lot of them. He walked the project with me many times to ensure I understood what was being done.
Anyone wanting a roofing contractor who is knowledgeable honest, reliable, caring and, most importantly, stands behind their work, we will recommend Tim Kline Roofing.
And to answer your question: Yes, we are impressed!
Tim Kline is a hands-on owner who values his reputation and is prepared to make his customers happy. His professionalism was exemplified by the way he made himself personally available to the Board of Directors for a presentation on his evaluation of our particular project. He took great care to photograph the existing roofs and to explain the nature of the issues our community was facing. This resulted in a bid that was detailed and clear. His willingness to take this time up front was a major factor in his being awarded our contract.
During the project, homeowners observed and commented on the quality and efficient pace of the work being performed. It was noted that Jair Hernandez, the Project Manager, managed very well in Tim’s absence as the job site was kept exceptionally clean and the safety procedures were well thought out and consistently adhered to. The work was often completed ahead of schedule and very little had to be resolved upon completion.
I recommend Tim Kline roofing without hesitation. You will get what you pay for: accountability, quality workmanship and attention to detail.
We would like to express how fortunate we feel that our new roof was installed by you and your roofing team. We knew you were more than qualified to do a project of this magnitude, especially since we changed the make and color of our original roof tiles, by your professionalism in showing us pictures of what needed to be done and what needed to be corrected by the original roofers. You impressed upon us that you would stand by your work and give us the roof that we would be happy with for the rest of our lives.
Your employees arrived everyday on time and left the job each day amazingly spotless clean. The entire project was very organized and went very well. We attribute this to the fact that you were on the job everyday overseeing everything. This meant a great deal to us as so many contractors do not do that anymore. We would not hesitate to recommend your company to anyone. Thank you again our beautiful roof.
Just wanted to write you a note about the new roof you just finished at my home.
After a year of some minor and then some major leaks at my home, I decided to put on a new roof on the house. The time had come to stop patching the roof and take care of the current problems and any future problems.
I bid the work out to three different roofing companies. The prices as I expected ranged different by some $3500.00. In today’s world of deciding on contractors of any kind, one must consider more than who is the least expensive. You must take in consideration, referrals, quality and reliability of the company.
I am so happy that I went with your company, Tim Kline Roofing. First, I must mention dealing with you personally, Tim, was a pleasure. You personally explained the entire job that your men were going to perform in detail. And about the crew that you sent to do the job, as professional as you are, so were all of your workers. Not only were they polite, and respectful, the quality of the work was amazing. Each morning I personally went on the roof to follow the progress and was very impressed of the detail that went into their work. This is a testament to you. At the end of each day they spent time going through the entire property to make sure all debris was picked up, especially the nails that might have fallen on the property.
Many of my neighbors came up to me to mention that they never had seen workmen, perform their work so professionally. They also mentioned that they noticed the detail and quality that they were performing. They arrived every day on time and left the job each day with the property looking neat and clean.
All of my neighbors are probably in the same position of needing a roof within the next 24 to 36 months, and all, not some of them, have said they would only consider you and your men, after seeing the quality and professionalism of your company.
In today’s world so many people like to complain and find fault with work that is performed for them, and never praise the company when the work is done in a professional manner and with the quality that should be expected. That is why I wanted to let you know how pleased I was with every aspect of the job that was performed on my home. Again, thank you so much and you have the permission to forward this letter to anyone that is considering have either roof repairs or an entire roof to be replaced.
When one has the opportunity to observe outstanding work by a contractor it is appropriate to recognize that effort. Your efforts in providing the planning, organization and project control as you worked to replace our roof was excellent. I was very impressed.
You provided a well written proposal that was understandable and equitable to both participating parties. Additionally, your effort in pictorially documenting the project from start to finish is beneficial to all parties.
I was also impressed with your crew lead by Jair. Their work effort was excellent. In a very short period of time, it was obvious that this was a well trained cohesive team in which each person new their specific responsibility and did it with minimum direction. Don’t hesitate to use me as a reference for future work should it be of assistance. Keep up the good work.
I am writing this letter to tell you how impressed I was once again with your performance and professionalism concerning my roof.
When I originally contacted you after going through six different roofers, I knew you were the best person and company for the job just by your professional attitude and actually showing me what, where and why I needed a new roof. I could tell you were more than qualified to do the job.
Your price was very competitive with local roofers, and in dealing with you throughout the estimating process and the actual work being done, you were able to respond to all my questions and concerns. It quickly became obvious there was no need to worry and I finally found an honest, professional roofer who stands by his work.
Just recently, after I had to re-plumb my home, we had a rain storm and my roof began leaking. I called you and explained what the plumbers did and you were happy to look at my roof. After careful review of the roof and seeing what they had done, you took it upon yourself to deal with the plumbers on my behalf.
Working with a person like you lifted a tremendous amount of stress off of me and saved me money. You not only fixed my roof once again, but actually went out of your way to help me! I have been in the property management field for 25 years and I must say I have never met such an honest and upfront person. Believe me when I say this is not common nowadays.
Finally, I want to thank you for following up and making sure everything was done to my satisfaction. The whole project went very smoothly, and the roof looks beautiful. You get an A++++ in my book!
I would like to let you know how impressed I am with the professionalism and care that your roofers took during my roofing project. They were careful to cover my entire pool and yard area where debris could fall. They cleaned up at the end of each day to ensure there were no nails lying on the ground or in my driveway. Not once did I need to worry whether they were doing the job the way it should be done. That alone was a huge relief for me. They came to work at the same time every day and worked diligently all day long. The roof looks fantastic and I am extremely pleased.
I would highly recommend you and your company to anyone. Thank you for taking such good care of your customer!
