    "We are 100% happy with the job that Metro roofing did on our outbuilding/ garage.Their cost was lower than two other bids, with a larger scope of work (Metro also did gutters and added vents, AND fixed some slipping shingles on our main house at no extra charge). Their cost was a little higher than the "one guy with a truck" from the neighborhood, and that guy wanted me to use my truck to get plywood... we went with the pros and are happy about that.Metro's crew was fantastic... Jose, Mauricio and all did the job in a day, communicated well and thoroughly, problem-solved a couple things mid-job (at no extra cost), and cleaned up everything to the last bit. I think they stayed late to avoid coming back too. Once the roof was on, Mike came and did the gutters, integrating our rain barrel and making everything work well, which we know because it rained today.The quality of the work will tell over time, but at first inspection everything looks great. The roofers cleared FOUR layers of old roof (the estimate said two, but we didn't get charged extra) and probably added another 10 years easy to the whole garage (the roof will outlast the rest of the structure). New fascia and gutters make the thing look really nice. Once we paint it next week, it'll be a major upgrade to our property.Administrative staff were also excellent... we'd contract with Sound Metro Roofing again."
