Tracy Roberts from Findlay roofing came out to give me an estimate and resealed the exposed nail heads (which is most likely causing my leak) free of charge! I appreciate someone who is willing to just be kind and do a simple fix that I am unable to do myself.

Customer Service was reminiscent of the old days. They communicated as necessary regarding rain delays. Their workers installed a beautiful, new roof, cleaned up after themselves, and left my roses in the same condition as they were before they arrived.
