Otneil Alvarez and his entire crew were fantastic. They were professional, punctual, extremely fair and thorough. Otneil was responsive every time I called and either made himself available to talk to me or texted me right back to coordinate a time we could talk.
I received three quotes for a new roof on my 1926 bungalow and, although Alvarez was not the low bid, I made the decision to go with them based upon my discussions with the Owner - Otneil. I have been in the construction business for over 20 years as an architect and I have developed an ability to recognize an excellent contractor when I see one. Its not that the other guys were bad -- its just that Otneil went above and beyond in explaining the process. He was extremely passionate about his profession and I respected that from the beginning.
As I stated his quote was the second the lowest bid provided. However, he was the only one who stated that he didn't like to nickel and dime his customers at the end of the job for additional materials (such as wood). He included 150 linear feet of wood in his quote while others either included none or a minimal amount. Having a home built in 1926 with tons of exposed ratfters, I knew that wood replacement would be extensive on this job. Had I gone with the low bid, I would have paid more in the end for all of the additional wood. They actually ended up using more than the 150 linear feet included in the bid as 6 full sheets of plywood were required under the roof membrane. Otneil charged NOTHING for the additional plywood. Otneil estimated one day for the re-roofing of my house. Because of the additional work they had to do to replace the rotten wood, the work progressed into the afternoon of a second day. Otneil charged NOTHING for the additional 3/4 day to finish my roof.
On top of the great job they did, they also hauled away an old wooden play set that I had just taken down in my backyard.
My only problem is now my roof looks so great I need to get in gear and get the rest of the house looking better to match it! Call this guy -- he has his customer's best interests at heart, he knows what he is doing and better yet.... he loves what he is doing.
I had referred Otneil and Alvarez Roofing a few times prior for clients at the recommendation of another agent in my office. They were all satisfied with his service and so I contacted him when it was time to do a complete replacement of our own roof. He was very competitive, and encouraged me to get 2 more bids, which I did. Besides the fact that he was genuine, trustworthy and knowledgeable, and his presentation was excellent, neither of the other 2 bids even followed up with me to see if I had questions. We hired him. He and his crew were on time and professional, and they completed the roofing replacement within the days he told us. They were polite and cleaned up after themselves, and Otneil himself followed up with us after to make sure that we were satisfied. As a REALTOR, I am very particular with who I use on my own, as well as which service providers I refer to clients. Alvarez is top-notch, fair and quality. I RECOMMEND THEM. Excellent job, thank you!
I highly recommend ALVAREZ HOME REPAIRS. A truly professional company that stands by their work. I researched other roofing roofing companies on Angies list and other places and decided to go with ALVAREZ HOME REPAIRS due to their strong reputation. I almost went with another bid that initially came in lower but decided not to based on reviews that the other company had many surprise costs that would end up on the final bill. This seems to be the norm in this industry. Not with ALVAREZ HOME REPAIRS. They stood by their bid and assured me we would be made aware and provided proof of any additional cost. Much to my delight there were no hidden surprises and cost was right at the estimate.
I called several other companies for roofing work over the last few years and none of them matched the great service and attention I was shown by Otniel and the rest of his workers. It was so hard just to get a quote from the other companies. Otniel either answered the phone or called me back within a few minutes every time called him.They truly take pride in their work and it shows.
Job was finished in one day to my pleasure. Otniel explained the the different options I had clearly and didn't try to only direct me to the higher priced options.
I will recommend and use this company for all my roofing needs in the future.
Work Description: The entire roof was stripped, new wood precisely placed where needed, covered entire roof with "Peel and Stick", new Tar around all vents & the entire roof edge, new Drip Rail & Lead Vent covers, very precisely measured & marked chalk lines.
Comments: Having worked construction myself, all phases, from site-prep to exterior, interior, cabinetry & trim and even underwater (as a diver) I have seen all levels of very good to shoddy work. Alvarez Home Repair re-shingled my 42 squares roof (about 3,300 sq ft). I have seldom seen such care and attention to detail. Done far better than a major company (HD) planned to do. I believe in advertising the bad & good, whereby we customers can run the bad out of business & the good can survive and prosper, as they should. Alvarez Home Repair (and Roofing) is DEFiNITELY in the VERY BEST category. I heartily recommend this company with no reservations. And his PRICE was also THE BEST. The owner even came out to inspect the job DURING the 3/6/2014 DOWNPOUR even though I told him it was not necessary. His crew was polite, considerate & communicative, Cleanup very well done. FIVE STARS plus.
Setting up the appointment was a problem. Mr. Alvarez called right after I bought the Big Deal. I returned his call in about a week to set up an appointment. We played phone tag a bit, then set up an appointment. However, he did not show up for the appointment. I called him, and we delayed the appointment until later that day, but he didn't show up or call. I called him back; we set up an appointment for the next day. No show, no call. I called that night and we set up one more appointment for the next morning. Mr. Alvarez showed up on time, apologized for the previous missed appointments, explaining that some unexpected business difficulties. intervened. He did what appears to be a thorough job and explained what he did. We talked some about the cost and kind of roof I might plan to do. When I decide to take care of the roof, I will get an estimate from him.
The Alvarez crew was great! They made a quote on time, showed up on time, worked extremely hard, and finished up quickly with a quality job. The owner was easy to contact and communicate with. He gave me a lot of choices with colors and how to correct my roof problems. The company did exactly what they said they would do and even added some bonuses for me. Excellent job! They were to arrive and start at 7:30 AM. When I pulled up at 7:30, the team was already unloaded and working. They waste no time! They worked hard until job was done. The owners took their time explaining everything they were doing to make my roof last. Thank you so much!!!!! I recommend them confidently. They seem extremely busy, but once I scheduled the job, the team focused on my roof and were great!
I purchased a Deal from this company for wood rot repair and roof line restoration. In Florida, we have a lot of rain. I have a one-story home so the roof is right above the house. Along the edges of the roof there are soffits, which are very vulnerable to the rains that come down. Water got into the wood work and caused rot. They came down and looked over the edges of the house and looked for roof rot. In the places they found wood rot, they opened the places up, removed old wood and replaced with new wood. They got everything that was showing. They were able to repair my roof without having to redo the entire roof. I was very satisfied with the work. I'm very pleased. I cannot see any roof rot anymore. They were polite and helpful.
Mr. Alvarez was very thorough in explaining what all needed to be done and the processes involved when he gave me the estimate, which was less than I was expecting! Professional hard-working crew. Real pleased with how well they cleaned up when they finished. Very satisfied with my new roof. 2 thumbs up!!
I cannot express how pleased I am with the roof that was replaced by Otniel Alvarez and his professional team! Not only was the work completed in 2 days as promised but the area around my home was kept clean and clear of any debris the entire time the work was in progress! He came through as he promised with NO hidden charges! We got several bids and his was the best to say the least. The other roofers bids had too many "ifs" and "ands"! I highly recommend to anyone who is looking for a roofer to give him a call and compare for yourself! Thank you, Otniel and Orlando for you kindness, professionalism, and for treating my home as if it were your home! God Bless!!
Purchased an Angie's List special for roof repair for $299. They contacted me within a day or 2 via email. I requested they wait until after holidays. They were very accommodating. When I finally chose a date they came out right away. Very personable and polite. Took pictures of the damage. Recommended a new roof but was NOT at all pushy. I listed n/a for quality as it's only been a few days since the repair. Time will tell if the quality of the repair holds up. Not worried, however, I feel that the repairs will be fine.
Alvarez is really the best company to call for your roofing problems or needs. I looked into several companies but decided on this one. Good things come to those that wait and I'm happy with everything. Experienced engineers from what I saw and how they went about their work. They work carefully and the price was more than fair. They really care to do their best no matter how big or small the job is. You wont be disappointed I was told. And I wasn't.
Oneil and his son were both great. They showed up the next business day after I bought the Angies List deal. They were very professional and gave me some great advice on how to get the most out of our roof. I would recommend this service provider to anyone who asks. Thanks for the good work it is greatly appreciated!
I just did my roof with Alvarez Home Repairs, Llc, what an experience! They did such a wonderful job. I am impressed, no hidden fees, wow. Area so clean, better then before they did the roof. Super happy, owner was helpful and answered all my questions. Trust them, you can't go wrong. We are extremely pleased.
He returned my call within an hour. Showed up on the date we agreed to on time. Told me I did not need a new roof for 5 to 7 years. Showed me why my roof leaked. Offered a price for needed repairs. Completed the job within the hour. It stormed ..rain and wind.... hard the following day. No problems noted. Thanks !! Great all around experience.
I found out about Alvarez Home Repairs because they put a new roof on my neighbors house. My roof was getting to the point where it needed to be replaced. I called Otniel to get an estimate and after meeting with him I felt like he was knowledgeable and an honest guy. His estimate was very fair so I hired him to do the roof and they were able to get out there in a few days. The job went very well and they finished the entire roof in 2 days. The guys were well organized and did a nice clean job. Otniel and his brother made sure I was happy with every detail of the roof and even helped me with the process of getting an inspection for the insurance discount. Overall I am very happy with Otniel and Alvarez Home Repairs and will use them again in the future.
Excellent experience from start to finish. True professionals in every way ......I would highly recommend Alvarez LLC........
Alvarez roofing are truly the best roofers. they were professional, good spirited, and the hardest working team i’ve ever seen. They were funny and polite, plus they know Shakira, LOL. We kept in contact all the why from Buffalo, NY. When we arrived to Florida he was ready for us with his team. To everyone out there, these guys are not a nail in the dark team, they’re experienced and knowledgeable. I recommend Alvarez roofing for all youre roofing needs. Thank you guys and God bless.
The crew were very professional and prepared with ladders, tools, caulking, tar and know-how. They inspected my roof and gave me a thoroughgoing report of the roof. They took pictures for me to analyze with their cell phones and on the spot repairs were made. | My house did not have "roof crickets" installed. So, |this crew will be back in December or January to install this...crickets will divert the water from the chimney as it travels downward from the roof above. Without this flashing system inside water damage can occur. So, I will send a follow up report once this has been installed. Ask Otniel or his brother Orlando | Alvarez to check to see if you need a roof cricket. Good guys! An asset to Angie's list.
We needed to have our roof replaced. After some research, talking with friends and online, I called three roofing contractors. Otniel Alvarez came out the same day.
Otniel took the time to thoroughly examine our existing roof and made recommendations about both materials and methods that would provide us not only with a new roof, but one that would meet the new insurance reqirements for wind mitigation and secondary leak protection. The other contractors provided us with estimates for the very minimum to satisfy code and their prices were slightly higher than Alvarez Roofing
We had to have the work done very quickly to satisfy our homeowners insurance renewal. Alvarez Roofing complied with our tight schedule, they came completely prepared with a full crew and completed the job in a very timely and professional manner. The crew was not only experienced, but they worked as a real team. It was evident from the first hour of work that our job was in the hands of journeymen.
The day after the roof was complete, we were provided with a Florida downpour and our new roof performed flawlessly and continues to so. We are very satisfied with every aspect of our experience with Alvarez Roofing. We got a timely and complete estimate (no "hidden" charges), fast and professional workmanship, and a fair price.
We could not have asked for a better roofing contractor than Alvarez Roofing.
They got here on Thursday morning and went to work. They finished the roof by Friday afternoon! Fast! And well done. They picked up every scrap of trash and even fixed a small hole they had accidently put in my screen cage. A great job! Quite pleased with my new roof!
Mr Alvarez did an excellent job putting a new roof on my house in Port Richey. He returns phone calls promptly and was a very good roofer. I would highly recommend him
ALVAREZ HOME REPAIRS, LLC was extremely professional from start to finish. We found them to be honest, prompt and very informative. It was a sincere pleasure to have them review our issue and communicate our options including giving us an estimate on a new roof. Unfortunately we were not able to use the generous coupon that they offered, instead of the repair(s) we opted to invest in a NEW roof. We strongly recommend considering this company for any roofing needs.
Mr. Alvarez did an amazing job at a fair price. Not to mention the cleanliness afterwards was second to none. This company is truly as professional and hard working. My roof looked amazing after he finished. Thanks again Mr. Alvarez.
Fixed Aluminum roof in a pole barn and fixed hole in the eave of home. They did a very good job.
Punctual, professional and affordable. Owner Otniel Alvarez delivered repairs to my roof as promised. Also helped with gutter installation. I would recommend for sure.
Alvarez Home Repair was a blessing.I called on a Tuesday (9-30) and he was able to come out Thursday (10-2). Not only did he give me a honest estimate, but he was also able to repair the issue. I am 100% percent satisified and will definitely use them in the future.
We had our roof done with Alvarez Home Repairs. The job was done quickly, neat and tidy. He is honest, hardworking, dependable and well respected by his friends and associates. Otniel knowledge of roof systems and construction phases is outstanding. We are planning to use him again for our business. “If you want roof satisfaction call Alvarez Home Repairs and you will be completely satisfied.”
Otniel Alvarez and a coworker completed a roof repair/inspection which I purchased through Angies List. Otniel Alvarez (owner) advised the whole roof needed to be replace. I received my $150.00 for the roof repair/inspection and $200.00 senior citizen discount off of my total quoted price which I felt was a very fair price. Otniel and his entire crew were very professional and performed quality work. My last roof I had replaced many years ago, I found nails and debris in my yard for weeks afterwards. Otniel's crew did a fantastic job of cleaning up and the roof turned out great. My wife and I are very pleased with the work performed and would not hesitate to refer Alvarez Home Repair to anyone.
Otniel Alvarez installed our roof in Bradenton Beach, Fl, after numerous contractors bid. We chose Otniel as my husband is a retired contractor from NY & realized how knowledgeable Otniel was. Our experience with Alvarez's Company is as follows:
Integrity, Professional, Craftsmanship (that of a fine artist in roofing) also his crew was hardworking, professional, polite & pleasant. We can not express enough praise for his quality & care. We highly recommend Alvarez Home Repair as he puts in 110%, we believe he's one of the best in the business!
Mr. Alvarez inspected my roof and caulked the vents, skylights and a solar tube. Mr. Alvarez arrived on time, performed the inspection and caulking and informed me that my roof would probably be good for another seven years. I will definitely call on Mr. Alvarez to inspect and maintain my roof in the coming years.
Love the great customer service that they have. very nice and clean work. excellent work from start to finish. I heartily recommend this company. they really know what they are doing and Otniel have a lot of knowledge of the work. They will work on your roof like if is they own.
Purchased the roof repair and inspection deal through Angies List. Also received an estimate for a new roof. The owner, Otniel Alvarez and another employee showed up to do the inspection and repait work which I purchased via Angies List. Mr Alvarez was very thorough as to the problems with my roof and I received, in my opinion, a reasonable estimate for replacment of the entire roof including the flat roof in the backside. When my roof is replaced I will complete another survey in which I,m hoping for the same results as the first survey.
I recently bought a house that needed a roof. I'm new to the area so I wasn't sure who to use. My friend recomended these guys and I couldn't be happier with their work. They finished the job ahead of schedule and came in at 500$ under the estimate they gave me. Thanks Otneil for delivering on your promise
They are awesome! Very neat, clean and conscientious. I would highly recommend them. They installed a top of the line roof and it looks amazing!
Mr. Alvarez was on time for the estimate appointment. His price was very competitive with the two other bids I received. He and his help were on time on the scheduled day to perform the repair. He completed the roofing repair including replacing some decking in about 3 hours. He was able to get the same shingles and matched everything. He cleaned up all the old shingles, underlayment and wood decking. On time, good work and at the agreed upon price. Excellent
I was amazed at how fast he did my roof. Him and his crew are respectful, tidy and again very quick. They took a day to complete. Everyone that visits complements on my roof. I cant be anymore pleased than I already am. . I'm very pleased because the work is truly, truly outstanding. Thank you so much. I'm very proud. And I highly recommend Alvarez Home Repair! They sure are covering all my roofing needs.
