The Roofing Advisor / Overcharged and not worth the labor

1 Castro Valley, CA, United States Review updated:
Contact information:

WARNING - DO NOT USE THE ROOFING ADVISOR - His ad states, "Have you ever been taken advantage of before because your lack of knowledge of a particular product or procedure? We all have at one time or another. What knowledge do you have about roofing? Exactly! (Do you really believe this? I did at first and later found out, WHAT A CROCK !!!). <br />
<br />
This is exactly what this guy did to me, he took advantage of an inexperienced unknowledgable person!!! Unfortunately, I used this service and was ripped off. I had ZERO experiece and knowledge about roofs. He commits you by having you sign a contract prior to the work and charges you a flat rate for advice even if little to no work is required. <br />
In the end, I paid a total of $800 for replacing two broken tiles, a few dollars worth of of aluminum flashing, and a half-assed power washed roof. He only power washed the roof and yet was paid in advance to wash the ENTIRE house and LIED about it when confronted. Unfortunately, I was bound legally by the contract and had to pay anyway. <br />
<br />
If you ever want to pay $800 for $20 dollars worth of materials and two hours worth of lazy labor and on top of that, BE LIED TO DIRECTLY, than use his service. <br />
Never again will I use this guy and his service. Save yourself the time, money and headaches. Go elsewhere for your roofing needs. <br />

    This complaint appears to be a bogus posting by a someone wanting to take business away from The Roofing Advisor. First, The Roofing Advisor does NOT require pre payment. Second The Roofing Advisor does NOT charge for advice. His consultations are FREE and with no obligation. These are just a couple examples of the numerous inaccuracies in this posting. The poster doesn't even identify himself/herself adding to the appearance that this is a bogus complaint!
