Quality Workmanship!

Had a complete roof replacement done by CL. Heard about CL by word of mouth as one of the more well established and better roofers in the area. Found CL’s rates to be reasonable and the quality of workmanship to be excellent. The crew was fast, thorough, courteous and took care to protect landscaping.

Also went the extra mile on problem areas, to include the virtual rebuilding of a rotted “doghouse” window box on one corner of the roof. I am quite pleased with the results and highly recommend CL to anyone in need of roofing work of any kind.  – Hepburn Road, Hamden, CT
