I have to say that I HATE having repairs. It seems like I have a huge sign on my forehead that screams "Helpless single woman - make sure you try to rip me off!". Every time I get a repair, the repairman tells me how doom and gloom things are. Then they proceed to tell me that I need this huge repair cost to be up to code or that we are all going to die because of this. I hate this rip off age. I just want a fix - like a husband would do... not a whole remodel / fix it / up to the latest code fix. Plus, I think the new frame of mind is to get as much money as you can out of every little fix.
When I find a good repair man who doesn't rip me off - they are are on my list forever. Usually I come across them accidentally and my most favorite repairmen are those who are retired and who have a good work ethic and are not out to rip me off.
Unfortunately, I have had many shingles blown off this side of my roof. I've had several repairs. They always tell me the doom and gloom of it all - that I need to re-shingle my whole roof for $3000+ dollars and I need to do it now. They tell me they can't match the shingle color and so it's better to just replace it all. It's always some big sad story. Luckily I've had extra shingles and was able to have those particular repairmen just fix the missing shingles.
Then I came across a wonderful retire man, Mel Wirz and the name of his company is Absolute Best. He is honest and does a great job. That is what I want "honesty and integrity". Mel came yesterday to fix my roof. Yeah!! It's repaired! There were no doom and gloom stories, just honest labor and my roof fixed. He even had the shingles - which is good because I don't have anymore. And the shingles match - imagine that!!
If you live in the Boise area and are in need of an honest man to fix any shingles you may have lost in a wind storm - he is the man to call. His number is 208-283-2932.
The cost for this repair was $100. By far the cheapest repair to date that I've had to replace blown off shingles.
