970 roofing was recommended to us by our lender. Adam was awesome and really took time to answer our questions Day or night, the whole process was totally stress free. The crew that came out to roof our home did a fantastic job. Excellent quality for a great price couldn’t be happier. Thanks guys!!!
I loved everything about working with 970 Services, and they really delivered a first-class experience. We contacted them for an estimate after our roof was totaled from a hail storm over the summer. After agreeing to the proposal, 970 Services was great about communication (scheduling, providing recommendations for other work we needed done, progress updates on the roof installation, etc.), and the crew that came out to work on our house was also super professional and cleaned up the area very well. Will recommend them and use them again in the future!
I was so happy I had the 970 team in my corner after the hail storm. Adam and Brian are wonderful individuals. I am glad I could count on them for professional services as well as I consider them wonderful friends. Love my new roof and Joe was GREAT!
Excellent experience from start to finish! Absolutely recommend for roof replacement as they do what they say and stand by their work! So grateful we chose them!!
Best customer service experience I've ever had! We had a difficult situation with our insurance company on our roof, and Adam went above and beyond to help us out. His crew did an amazing job in a very short amount of time. We also had 970 Services paint our house and that crew was amazingly polite and did a great job. We needed a little electrical work and plumbing work done as well, and the references Adam provided were also top notch. HIGHLY recommend 970 Services for roofing, painting, and restoration services. I don't think there's a thing they can't do!
