I never thought that I would find such superior workmanship and service- true professionals !! Thank you AC REPAIR HOUSTON.

Our sales person was rather disorganized...forgot to write things down and showed up occasionally without calling before work started. However, he was quite experienced, very personable, and totally honest. Satellite imagery was used to get a highly accurate estimate of roof dimensions. About a week before the roof was replaced, a crew came out to repair all the rotted trim work. They cleaned up a small board so I could get a proper color match when obtaining the paint I had previously agreed to supply. A lot of the original trim was wood, which was replaced with Hardy board now that the manufacturer makes material of the required dimensions. GAF Timberline HD shingles and other roofing materials were delivered on time and positioned where requested. The driver took several photographs documenting the delivery. I later moved some of the loose items into the garage for safe keeping and when the crew arrived I received a call from the office asking about the "missing" materials. The roofers were a Mexican crew but their supervisor spoke English well enough to ensure that my concerns were properly addressed. They worked from sun up to sun down and even through some rain that would have been cause enough for a break. That unmistakable odor led me to believe that some of the crew had been urinating near the house. Although I expect work crews to supply their own drinking water (they did), I would have preferred that they knocked on the door to use the indoor facilities since I was always at home. As the job drew to a close, the crew did an excellent job of removing debris and used a strong bar magnet on wheels to remove loose nails from the property. I am in the habit of picking up yard debris before mowing my lawn each week and over the past month I have picked up around a dozen roofing nails and maybe two or three handfuls of quarter size shingle pieces, most of which was among the front yard bushes. Even so, I managed to drive one nail straight up through my sneaker! Their customer service representative came by about a week later to inspect the job, give me his business card, and let me know that he would handle all problems and concerns I might have. One month after the job I received the warranty certificate and an invitation for this review. I grew up in a family that operated a lumberyard and even worked there a few years. Thus, I know first hand what constitutes a quality roofing job. This crew corrected a number of deficiencies that the builder of our house had introduced, particularly the lack of adequate drip edging. Both power roof vents were replaced (15 years old) and a new ridge vent was introduced so that the shingle warranty would be valid. I was responsible for rewiring the fans. It is gratifying to know that this family owned business did not loose its vision when it was sold to a national, California based outfit, PetersenDean. Their price was the best of three or four solid bids. If you want to get names of responsible businesses, do as I did and contact you home insurer. Beware of roofers who try to get your business through false insurance claims. You will be committing a felony.

I spent over $8K for a new AC to be installed on my residential property. When Housepro first came for a quote, it seemed like they knew what they were doing and we went with them. Midway through installing our AC, they told us they are giving us a more efficient unit and it would still be under the same warranty and service as the one quoted to us at no additional cost. That's where we made our mistake. The unit that was installed failed on us 5-6 times during the first 6 months of operation. HousePro kept coming out (response times ranged anywhere from a couple of days to 2 weeks) and trying to fix it, but every month later, I would be calling back because the unit failed. One of the technicians complained and used alot of obscene language while on duty - although the last visit, the technician (Charlie or Chris - younger guy) was very nice, fixed the issue, explained it to me, and apologized profusely for the poor work. Overall, I would not recommend HousePro - they did a bait and switch on us, then couldn't fix the issue until 5-6 tries as well as charged us a couple of times, did not provide an extended maintenance service to us since the unit is a dud, nor did they help us try to get a replacement unit from the manufacturer (they told us to write a letter to the manufacturer and whatever happens, happens). Buyer beware.

I have been very pleased with the quality of the workmen and management at Brinkmann Roofing. They went above and beyond what was called for in the contract from the first meeting, through contract negotiations, and installation of the new roof and gutter.

The quality of the materials was excellent, the workman were on-site on time, and the work was completed in a timely and efficient manner. The work ethic of the crew, supervision, and management was above reproach. My questions were dealt with in a timely and fair manner. Clean up after the job was complete and to my satisfaction.

I would not hesitate to recommend this company to anyone at any time.
