Repaired roof

We had a roof leak over our daughter's bedroom. DVR came to do a review and estimate on time compared to others. They provided a solid quote and came back to repair the roof when they said they could.

They did a quality job replacing all the shingles, the final price matched the quote, as well they cleaned everything up. And we had a same day guarantee that it was fixed as we had a storm right after they completed and no more leaks!

Asphalt roof reshingle

I had a 14 year old original shingled roof that was in need of replacement. I am in a middle of the row townhouse with neighbors on each side. I did extensive research on the shingling process, shingle brands, where installers typically cut corners, etc. I interviewed 8 companies in the process and received a wide range of quotes. I ultimately decided to go with DVR based on their feedback on this site, the shingle brand they were using (Certainteed Landmark, which based on general consensus in the roofing community and based on my own opinion is a superior product compared to comparable IKO, BP and GAF shingles), the fact that they quoted full roof underlayment in addition to ice and water shield, and the comfort I received in knowing that they would not use third party installers. All the quotes that came cheaper than DVR did not include full roof underlayment so it was easy to see where the 'apparent' savings were coming from. DVR's quote was in the middle of the range of quotes I received which gave me comfort. I was able to convince 4 out of the 6 neighbors in my row to go with DVR and each were satisfied with their work.

On the day of the installation, Dimitri and Victor showed up right on time. They are not rushed and took their time with the installation which finally produced a result which is far superior than the original builder-supplied roof I had.
I wish Dimitri and Victor all the best with their business.

What could this company do to improve their services?
A detailed customer information package telling the customer what to expect on the day of the installation. Even though DVR looked after the clean up and protected the landscaping from damage as much as they could, it would be nice to know definitively what precautions they would take and what they expect from the home owner, e.g. cover the bbq, close all windows to prevent dust from entering the house, etc.
Any advice to offer fellow homeowners facing a similar project?
Speak to the prospective installer about the shingle brand they are using. Don't be afraid to go with a different color shingle than what is installed. The color selection today is vastly superior to what it was 15 years ago. If you are in a town house, don't be afraid to take the initiative to talk to your neighbors. Ultimately, it is best if the entire townhouse (or semi) roof is done together and by the same company so that there is no finger pointing later in case of a leak with each company pointing the blame at the other.

Any advice to offer fellow homeowners facing a similar project?
Ask what shingle brand the installer is providing. Ask about full roof underpayment. Ask the roofer to assess the existing attec ventilation. If you are in a townhouse like me, don't be afraid to take the initiative in speaking to all of your neighbours and lead the discussions with roofing companies. Ultimately, it is best if the entire townhouse roof is replaced at the same time by the same installer so that you don't have finger pointing if there is ever a leak with each roofer blaming the other one.

Roof maintenance

The gentlemen from DVR Roofing where very professional. Considering it is a roof and you can't see what is going on, they took pictures of the problem and patched it up very well. They also told me about regular roof maintenance and when I would need to change the whole roof.

Roofing

DVR Roofing is very prompt and sharp to their schedule of work. Besides they are quite considerate and flexible too for providing little extra effort beyond their actual contractual obligations for a very reasonable price. Victor was very courteous, respectful and patience to answer all our questions. We have found them worth a bit more than what they have quoted in their estimate. I would be highly delighted to refer them without any hesitations, being a senior construction manager. DVR Roofing do earn their credentials. Date of roofing: April 1st, 2014.

Roofing

Called DVR roofing after finding them on the BBB site. The owners Dimitri and Victor, came to my home with a fair estimate, after noting several problem, with the previous contractors installation, (such as no ice/water membrane under the shingles, no drip edge, no proper ventilation in the attic - soffit).
My gut feeling told me these guys are excellent, and I am in good hands, so I went with them. Come work day, they arrived as promised at 7am and worked thru till 3pm. The workmanship was excellent, meticulous, with an eye for detail, and let you know upfront and give you their honest opinion.
DVR Roofing is a company that gives roofing trade a good name.
Keep up the good work Dimitry and Victor, and thank you very much..

repair slate roof

Some slates on my roof needed to be repaired or reset. After getting quotes and meeting other roofers, I gave the small but difficult job to DVR. They arrived on time and did an excellent job fixing the roof. In addition, they were kind, courteous and understanding. It's easy to recommend DVR. Thank you.

Full roof

There is a good reason that all of DVR's reviews have 10 stars, because there is not a way of selecting more than 10 stars! - This was our first experience replacing a roof - My Wife and I both have a professional customer service background, and it is obvious that DVR has this down pat from A-Z in a first class manner - everything was covered in the most professional form, including the roof :>) which looks beautiful and classy - Thank you DVR for a non-stressed fantastic experience

New shingles on sloped roof

As a new homeowner, this was my first experience with hiring a roofing contractor. I went through the process of contacting different roofing companies and ended up with nine quotes ranging from $2700 to $4900. I was shocked at the range.

DVR come in with a very competitive quote and were very professional in assessing the job and explaining the quote. I asked Dmitriy a lot of questions before making a decision. He was prompt and professional in his responses. Note that DVR recommended and quoted Certainteed Landmark shingles where all the other quotes, except one, were recommending IKO. From my research I believe that the Landmark Shingles are a better product, but I’m sure that’s debatable.

So, on paper DVR was similar to the other companies and their quote was less than most companies, and they were going to install a more expensive higher quality shingle. Was it too good to be true? I don’t think so. Sometimes you find a good company who charges a fair price.

We had a leak in our roof and after signing the agreement Dmitriy implemented a temporary fix until they were able to do the full job. That was not expected, nor did he charge me for it. It was just good customer service and was much appreciated. When the time came to do the roof, the crew showed up at 8:30am, worked in a professional manner, did the job as stated in the contract, and cleaned up afterward. They were done by 3:30pm. Overall, the experience was good and they did a good job from what I can tell. My neighbour, who’s been a home owner for over 25 years and is a handyman himself, also agreed that everything looked good.

Thanks guys,
Dave

Replace flat roof

I had my flat roof and evestrough replaced. The guys did a good job cleaning up the mess after completion. I called them back to fix a gutter that was not sloped properly and was full of water. I very plesantly surprised when they showed up the next day to do the repairs. I would recommend Dimitri and Victor to people I know.
