Ron put a new roof on my house and the installation itself went ok, but when a problem showed up afterwards his performance left a lot to be desired. At the end of the first rainy season an existing skylight showed signs of a water leak. Ron came out, looked at it and said that the workers had not trimmed the shingles properly around the flashing. He sent someone out and he cut some material away from the flashing. The next winter water got in again, this time worse, and caused serious damage to the sheet rock around the skylight. Ron came out again and upon closer examination we saw gaps between the flashing and the roof deck big enough to stick a finger into. Why no one saw this earlier is a mystery to me. So Ron sent a guy out to fix it and when I went up on the roof to inspect the repair I saw that he had basically caulked up one side, and the other side he replaced some flashing pieces and had to screw them into the skylight with Spax-type (wrong screw for this use) screws to get them to hold against the vertical surface. Very poor workmanship. I called Ron and told him I was not satisfied with the repair job and he needed to come out and inspect it which he eventually did and when we spoke about it on the phone we agreed that it was not done properly, was probably watertight for now but would not hold up long term. Then he told me to fix it properly it would cost me ninety dollars

Then he told me to fix it properly it would cost me ninety dollars ?? here he was telling me that I would have to pay extra for a job he did not do properly in the first place. At this point I told him that I was tired of going back and forth with him and will deal with it myself, I am pretty handy and I am sure that I can research it and fix it myself. Ron gets a failing grade for this problem and I also want to add that throughout this entire process he was not responsive. I had to make repeated calls to get him to act, he never called me on his own until the very end, after he had told me I had to pay to fix the leak, and he wanted to know when he could schedule the work. My advice ?? find another roofer, don't use RA Construction.

Great guys, they made our place look like a mansion. It is possible to buy those do it yourself puzzle pieces of flooring and just lay them out throughout your house on your own. But, the other good option (when you have the money to do so) is to have professionals do the job for me to make sure that everything is in its place and sturdy. The tiles were good quality and the worksmanship is thumbs up all the way. Very reliable service, too.
