I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him or use EZ Roof Repair for any future work!
We were recommended to Gino and the family from a friend. We lost some roof pieces and facia from the strong winds in March. They came by the next day to inspect the damage, told me it’s not worth calling my insurance because of my deductible and came 2 days after that to do the work. They did extra work without charge and I really appreciate that.
This is a team of professionals and they are very prompt in their response. They performed a good quality work ,on time, as they promised. They answer all your questions and offer you options. They take personal responsibility for the job. I wish them success.
