If there is a good review of this company, it is from Helen Chmielinski, the owner.
We got no satisfaction on the improper roof installation from Chet's Roofing and Construction. For four years each time there was a rain storm water would run inside the home and cause water damage. Chet caulked the facia several times but then totally refused to try to determine the problem. A different roofer determined the problem after twelve minutes and has fixed it.
Chet's Roofing was found at fault for an improper installation in Small Claims Court and has since defaulted on the judgment. There is now a case number in Superior Court for the purpose of debt collection.
Chet's Roofing and Construction has a bad reputation, Chet Chmielinski gets belligerent and bullys elderly people into giving up on warranty work. Just not me.

I have recently been reminded of this forum, and right now I am too angry to make a wise and thoughtful response. I feel sorry for Helen since she has to make accusations against the company's customers based on the false information given to her by her husband Chet. Her sister was there and she knows everything.
It turns out that the court date is a couple weeks away. I am eager to see if they lose the attitude and behave like a reputable small business. This is one of those learning experiences where they get to choose how much tuition they are willing to spend.
I am working on creating one of those 3 minute youtube videos to tell the entirety of the story with all of the photographic evidence, as well as the sworn affidavits from the repair contractors and prescribed installation instructions from the metal materials provider. I will have to really work to keep it under 3 minutes. Chet's Roofing just might become the poster child for small companies that behave poorly toward their customers in the new age of the Internet.

Chet's Roofing takes pride in the work that it does and tries it's best to respond to any concerns of it's customers. On rare occasions, our efforts are not viewed as sufficient by a customer. In this case, the customer expressed concerns of dampness and leaks. We removed 15 panels of metal roofing to determine the cause dampness, only to find no evidence of dampness or leaks. Additional investigation found that the converted garage now an apartment lacked ventalation. With all the applicances, cooking and bathroom usage, moisture could not escape. This resulted in mosture pooling on the ceiling causeing what looked like a leak, but was actually condensation. We did recognixe that some minor damage to a gutter needed to be fixed, but the homowner requested oversized ridge cap rather then fixing the gutter. So we installed the oversized ridge cap, but the homeowner apparently forgot and requested the gutters to be fixed too. Then the homeowner decided he didn't wanted us to fix it and threatened litigation. Well Chet's Roofing will go above & beyond what is required to reslove an issue, it cannot solve problems that it did not cause. In this case, an independent roofing consultant confirmed the moisture problem was not due to work by Chet's Roofing. We anticipate that when the Fox's resolve the ventilation promble, the concerns their prolbem with moisture and leakage will cease. Chet's roofing installed a very good product that will suppy many years of protection. We are sorry that the homeowner continues to believe the roof was not properly intalled. We stand by our installation and know it meets or exceeds the manufacturers specifications.

Everywhere I go I keep hearing the phrase 'Quit Freakin', Call Beacon'. I didn't actually see myself calling these guys until the other day when my garbage disposal needed to be replaced. I called them and they were over within a few hours.

They came in and took a look at the disposal. From that they were able to give me an estimate. I went ahead and let them replace my disposal which was done within the hour.

They were clean, friendly and professional. Although I didn't want to dish the money out to replace the disposal they still did a great job. What I liked about their pricing system was that at the end of the job they only collect the quoted amount. Its kind of nice because it keeps me away from any surprise invoices.

Over all they are a decent plumber.

Jim Dandy sent a tech to look at my plugged drain field. They charged me $318.00 and didn't give me much more than a flag where they said the plug up was. Their snake determined this. They also charged me for a "Video Inspection". I later learned that a camera cannot project an image from under water. Their customer service is terrible. Don't use them. I called another plumber who did a great job.

Miguel was wonderful! He is our guy; he knows what he’s talking about and Dave was finished with the install of our new furnace and air conditioner at the exact time he said he would be. We couldn’t be happier.

Great fence, way lower than competitors. Did 100 sf of a 6' cedar fence in our backyard. Two day job, fence is still holding strong a year later.
