Your roof is not only something that protects your home, it also protects your family. As a long time, resident of Monmouth County and having grown up in Manalapan, NJ, this story is near and dear to my heart.
As it happens with most homeowners, my roof and roofing started to fail over a slow period until, one day, we had a large storm roll through. The harsh elements of winter months and the rain-soaked spring seasons are typical of Monmouth County, NJ and the Jersey Shore, and these large storms are not uncommon. It’s not long until the leaks start, and water begins to penetrate the home and it’s time for roof repairs or a roof replacement.
That is exactly what happened to me during a particularly nasty storm in the spring of 2017. The wind came and blew away a series of roof shingles on the rear of my home. I called a few places to see how much it would be to repair the roof, but the roofing material on my roof was too old. It was also a second roof, which meant the old roofing would need to be completely removed before a new roof could be put back into place.
My search began for a roofing company. I needed someone local and someone affordable. The first company sent a representative who was trying to sell me a roofing system; he was too high-pressure and very high priced. The second salesperson came and gave me a better price and toned down the sales talk once I explained how I was put off by the first roofing contractor.
Then it happened! When the third salesperson came to my front door, he actually knew my name. He told me he was the Owner of A-Top Roofing and we had attended Manalapan High School together. I invited Andrew Ferrara in and told him where I was in my roof shopping journey. Andy and I spoke, and he explained to me exactly what I needed and included the reasons why. He had a complete series of samples and showed my why it was important to choose a company that used the best roofing materials, was fully licensed and insured, and most importantly could get the job done in a single day.
Andy also carefully inspected the roof damage. He climbed into the attic, went up into the attic space above the garage area, and examined areas I didn’t think to look, like the flashing around the fireplace and the masonry that was failing on the chimney. His quote was much better than the others and was more thorough in covering (or uncovering) hidden damage as the project was in motion. Before I knew it I had a brand new roof, expertly installed and complete with the best warranties and guarantees in the industry.
I would recommend A-Top Roofing and Construction and their entire team of qualified experts and technicians to anyone. When I see the A-Top signs and trucks, I see a family owned, hard-working group of local hometown friends and neighbors who own a successful business, and are part of the community as well. I am proud to show off the work they did on my home! I love my new roof – it makes my home look great and, most importantly, protects my family too!
