It was a pleasure to work with Chad and his crew. The Shake Guys are an honest, trustworthy and hard working group. Chad worked aggressively with our insurance adjuster and replaced our entire roof before the weather turned, as promised. He responded to every email or voice mail quickly and efficiently. The crew was responsive to any questions or concerns. They were polite and professional. I would definitely recommend them to all!

I was especially impressed with the supervision and organization of the work crew. They worked hard and and overtime when needed. I am most satisfied with the final product. The wood shakes and the copper work were professional installed and adds value to my home.

Wow wow wow... wowed me! What a fantastic company. Never in my 26 years as a homeowner have I dealt with and home service business with such a high level of customer service/care or anything close to the level they went beyond expectation. My house never looked better! Sadly we're moving but our real estate agent says we'll sell fast due to the added curb appeal. I'm going to miss the smell on  warm day.
