What about Bob?

Roofer in Sacramento AskARoofer.com website, is a place to learn some basics about your roof. I have had a chance to help many folks personally and online with their roofing questions.  Some are simple questions, some maybe a little harder.

Hey guys, wanted to give you an update on a heavy soaker day like today when it’s coming down in buckets.  We are dryer than the Sahara desert inside!!! I hope I don’t jinx it by telling you, I did a building walk today and all the issues have disappeared. You did an amazing job for us. Thanks again!!!  Jeff Hanrahan. General Manager / A&S Motorcycles

The roofing job went very well and the roofing company you introduced us to was great! Patty and I are very happy. Thank You.

Bill H. Gaithersburg, MD

Thank you for your suggestions.  They are indeed very helpful. We were particularly intrigued by your Owens Corning Duration Teak recommendation.  We will be looking closer at that over the next few days and will of course be happy to let you know which way we go on our reroofing journey and send you a picture of the finished product as well. Thank you again for your help.

Wow, thanks!

It definitely answered my question. I really wasn’t expecting such a detailed answer, and so fast. I’m going to India soon to learn their traditional roofing techniques, that’s why I had this question. I’m bookmarking your page for sure, it’s a great little place. Cheers! Ben

    Bob spent an 1hr and a half with me on the phone, trying to figure out my moisture problem in my attic. Who spends that much time with a total stranger? Thank you very much for all your help. I've gotten a lot farther in an hr and a half than I have with 3 other roofers and 4 insulation contractors. Thanks Again Bob!

    I had a concern about the material used on my roof. The material used was not the material they stated they would use on my contract. I emailed Bob and he called me and told me what I should say to my local contractor to get the issue resolved. I spoke to my roofer and with Bob's help the roofer resolved the matter. Without Bob's help I am sure the roofer would not have addressed the issue. I didn't pay Bob and Bob does not know me but he took the time to speak to someone and help them out. It is so refreshing to know there are still honest, kind, and helpful people out there. Thank you so much for your help and time.

    Hi Bob, I was reading through some of your roofing terms, trying to get familiar with them when I came across the Sidewall picture. I owned the Cedar Gables Inn in Napa for 13 years and recognize that corner and those shingles. Those triangles were all hand cut in 1892 when the house was built. And when I had a section on the back re-shingled, we had to cut them all by hand as well to make them match. Love the articles. Thanks for the memory.

      Yes Ken, The Cedar Gables Inn in Napa, is a great example of cedar sidewall craftsmanship, I have admired for many years. Your establishment is just as impressive inside as well. A few years back we enjoyed a few nights staying in the room with an opening round window and secret passage door. As I recall it was the after dinner smoking room. Great hospitality.
