New Metal Barn Roof in Bolivar, Ohio

We were able to meet Mr. and Mrs. Zwick while working in the Bolivar area last summer.  They had storm damage on their home and barn and Ken was able to help walk them through the insurance process.  It can be difficult to navigate filing an insurance claim in a storm area to ensure that everyone is treated fairly.  We pride ourselves on being a local contractor, trusted to be around for a long time to come.  There are companies that will come in, do their jobs, and leave.. never to be heard from again.

Here are a few shots of the metal roof on this barn.  It was completed in our Classic Rib Panel, the color is Charcoal.

New Cedar Impression Shakes and Vinyl Siding in Mogadore, Ohio

We have had the pleasure of working with Bob through out the last year to improve the look of his home.  He first called us because he was looking for new exterior options for his home.  He had a Tudor style exterior and wanted to update the look to make it more modern and fresh.  We went over all our options and came up with a vinyl siding and shake combination.  Heartland Siding makes both the siding and the Cedar Impressions Shakes, which give us perfect color matching options.

Here’s Bob’s house before we completed any work on it:

New Charcoal GAF Timberline Roof in Dover, Ohio

“The roof looks very nice! Thank you!”

Mr. Thomas, Dover, Ohio

The simplest words can be appreciated so much! We met Mr. Thomas will we were working in the Dover and Strasburg area, helping homeowners with storm damage from a  storm in May of 2016.  We were able to walk Mr. Thomas through the whole process of filing his insurance claim, and in the end we replaced his roof.  Being in the middle of a storm area can be confusing for homeowners.  There are usually a lot of contractors around, and you’re not sure who to trust, or where to start.  We are very open and honest with our customers.  We are fully insured and can provide references for our work, and we truly try to make filing the insurance claim easier for you, the homeowner.

Here are few pictures of Mr. Thomas’ house after the work was completed:

New porch and standing seam roof

Porch Addition and Roof Completed in Bellevue, OH

When Mr. and Mrs. Baum came to us they knew they wanted to add a porch the front of their home, but they needed an experienced contractor who would know how to build on and make the transition smooth.  We finished the project this fall, and it turned out great! In the words of the Baum’s:

Tony was warm, friendly, and very knowledgeable. The quality of work was great! Clean up was excellent! Appreciate the professionalism!

We installed a standing seam metal roof and the color is Colonial Red.  Standing seam is an interlocking metal roof system that hides all of your fasteners, and it is for sure a roof that will last more than a lifetime.  We built the front porch on this home with Paldeck composite deck boards, and we framed a new roof over the porch so our homeowners will be rocking and enjoying the view for years to come.  Another great project, and a great remodel by our Amish roofing  crews.

Exterior Remodel in Dover, Ohio

We had the pleasure of working with a lovely couple, Rod & Sue Rothacher, from Dover, Ohio earlier this year.  We just recently received their review in the mail, and they are ecstatic.  In their words:

We are so impressed by the quality of the work and how helpful our contractor (Ken Troyer) was. He was prompt and was available to answer all questions. He dropped off samples for our opinion before we made decisions. We could not be more satisfied. The crew was always right on time and when they finished they cleaned up. They also took great care not to ruin our flowers around the house.

It is our goal to make every customer feel like they are a priority.  We go out with the intention of giving every person the best roof and siding workmanship we possibly can.  Here are a few pictures of the project after its completion.
