“They are the best.”

“I wholeheartedly recommend Champion Roofing for the quality of their work and competitive pricing.”

Review by
09/28/2017

“Just had a roof replaced by Champion. They did a very professional job and it looks great. Very easy to work with throughout the proposal process. Aaron left several color samples for us until our homeowner association gave us approval. Most importantly, as it turned out was the area-by-area process they used to do the work. After the first day of the project, with about one-third of the roof replaced, we had record torrential downpours in our area. I nervously woke up at 4:30 am expecting to see water cascading through the house. However, to my relief, everything was completely dry, no leaking. I was so happy that they only tore off the sections of roof that they planned to replace that day. I was pleased with our Champion Roofing experience and highly recommend them.”

Review by
09/28/2017

“Champion Roofing provided one of the best competitive bids. More importantly, they performed to distinction. Their customer service, professionalism and responsiveness is unmatched. They installed a new roof with eight new skylights, gutters and spouts. No problems whatsoever. This is rare in the industry.”

Review by
06/15/2016

“They did some work for me about a year ago. They attached some flashing around the fire chimney. They were very responsive, they had a very good number. They came out, did the work, photographed it and sent me a photograph. I was very happy with their service. It was an A. I would recommend them.”

Review by
06/15/2016

“I liked the professionalism of the guys they sent out. They did the job right and were very up front and forward about everything. I thought they were comfortable. They took out a skylight, replaced the skylight, and capped the chimney. I would give them an A. I'm very likely to recommend them.”

Review by
06/15/2016

“This was at our old house, we've moved since then. They got the job done. We had issues with our roof popping up, but I can't exactly explain it. I don't know, my husband kind of secured it. It wasn’t like a hole that went totally through, but it was getting close to being a hole in the roof. They did a repair. I would say they deserve an A.”

Review by
06/15/2016

“It was good. I'm not going to be owning that house anymore so I'm not worried about it. They patched the roof where a storm had taken off shingles. They did the job, that's all I care about. I won't rate it other than that. They did the job. It was done, and they were clean. They didn't make a mess, they cleaned up, and they were gone.”

Review by
06/15/2016

“This is the third time I've worked with them. They've all been positive. Once they fixed the roof of my garage that was falling in. A couple of times they fixed tiles and shingles on the roof of my house. I would rate them an A-. The last time they had a backup, other than that, they came out right away. No problem at all.”

Review by
06/15/2016

“They replaced some of the roofing. I would give them an A. It's been a while ago, so I don't have a totally vivid memory of it. It's all fine, I don't have time now to go through the categories. The bottom line is I was pleased with the work, they were pleasant to work with, and I have no complaints.”

Review by
06/15/2016

“They  were professional and did everything. They were easy to work with, professional, and held up to the quote. They did a full replacement of our primary roof, our garage roof, and full gutter replacement as well. I would say they deserve an A+. I'm extremely likely to recommend them.”

Review by
06/15/2016

“They put a new roof in over my family room. They were very professional and did exactly what they said they were going to do. They were very prompt, timely, and they cleaned up everything when they should have. Overall, it was great. I'd definitely rate them an A.”

Review by
06/15/2016

“They did roof installation and roof repair. They were responsive and reasonably priced. They probably deserve a B. It's hard to tell the quality of work, you don't go up on the roof to check it. It's hard to tell punctuality because you don't really meet them.”

Review by
06/15/2016

“I remember Champion Roofing. They did the job on time and we've had no problems with it. We got a condominium, they rebuilt part of our chimney. They opened up a water blister on the roof and installed some flashing. I would say they deserve an A.”

Review by
06/15/2016

“They  put a roof on for me. They did the shingles and the gutters. As a matter of fact, I should have had them do the gutter at the back of the house. They deserve an A+. The quality of work was good. I'm very likely to recommend them.”

Review by
06/15/2016

“I always have a positive experience with them. I've known them for years. They've done the roof on my company and on my house. This time it was replacing shingles. They deserve an A+ rating. I'm very likely to recommend them.”

Review by
06/15/2016

“My shingles blew off my roof and they replaced them. There was some kind of a crack somewhere that they filled in for me. I'll say they deserve an A rating. I haven't been on my roof. I'll most likely recommend them.”

Review by
06/15/2016

“They did the work one-two-three. It was good work—no complaints. They put on the roof, there was a leak in the roof, and they took care of it right away. They were A+.”

Review by
06/15/2016

“It was good. They were prompt. They were clean about what they did. They were able to do a good job on the replacement roof or the gutters. I'd give them an A rating.”

Review by
06/15/2016

“It was nine months ago. They replaced my roof. I liked that they had a good product and they were efficient. They got it done quickly. They deserve an A grade.”

Review by
06/15/2016

“I liked their speed. They followed through. They put a new roof on my house and my garage. They deserve an A. I'll very likely recommend them.”

Review by
06/15/2016

“The experience wasn't really positive. I'm glad it's done, but I would not recommend them. They replaced my roof. But their communication is horrible. I waited two months for this and I only got it done because I had to really call and request a refund unless they didn't give me a date soon. I'm between a C or D. I would definitely not recommend them, and I'm not going to use them again either. I don't know about the quality of work yet, because it says in the little thing to not look at--the shingles are a little bit smooth. So I'm waiting and being patient to see if that will look better but if not, no it doesn't look that good either. The customer service was bad. Once I got the appointment they were there, but to get them there. They did clean, so that's fine.”

Review by
06/15/2016

“It was a positive experience at the end. In the beginning, they dropped the ball; they said they were waiting for materials. It turns out somebody dropped the ball in scheduling. I was trying to get it done before winter and it took about an extra six weeks to start the job because of mis-management on their end. Once they did it, they came out and blew through it in a day. They did a great job. They did a tear-off. We'll go with a B. On quality of work they did a really good job. There were scheduling problems with customer service. When they actually said they'd be out, they were. They did a good job with cleanliness. They really seemed like they knew what they were doing.”

Review by
06/15/2016

“We were very impressed. We liked everything about them. They did excellent work and the price was explained. We had to make some changes and additions as we went along, but they explained it very well. They cleaned up everything really well. We were really pleased with the whole process. They did the roof of the house in the separate garage. We end up having them do gutters and soffits. They even replaced a couple of little pieces of wood that had rotted out. I'd give them an A+ rating.”

Review by
06/15/2016

“We're still working on it. They're examining my problem and giving me estimates on how to fix it, but it comes with no guarantees. I asked them to give me an estimate on how to do the whole roof and that's where we stand right now. It's about an A right now because the person I'm dealing with—I trust him. I don't know yet how likely I am to recommend them.”

Review by
06/15/2016

“They kept their promises. They broke the window, but then they got it fixed right away. It wasn't a bad thing; it was a good thing. It was a natural thing, an accident when they were doing it, and they got it done. They put in a new roof. I would give them an A+. They were very good in every way, I'm very happy with them. I already recommended them.”

Review by
06/15/2016

“I liked the fact that they guided me in the right direction. I had gotten other estimates, and one was way higher. I liked that they didn't do extra work, they did what they needed to do, and they made some recommendations. They put some fans in and fixed some little shingles that were buckled. I give them an A grade. Everything was positive.”

Review by
06/15/2016

“I did have a positive experience and I would love to—but I'm running late to catch my train.”

Review by

Review by
06/15/2016

“It was done on time, it was done right, and that's about it. They did my whole roof, a tear-off and re-shingle. I'd rate them an A-.”

“They were fine. They did a good job overall. They replaced my shingles, and I think it took three days. I would give them an A+.”

Review by
06/03/2015

“They replaced our roof. They were just very on top of things, so I’ll give them an A.”

Review by
06/03/2015

“I don't remember what I liked about them. They did the work and it was just fine. It was a garage. They did the roof on the garage. I would say they're a B. We just had some issues but I can't remember what the issues were. There were a few things. In the end, they resolved them but we had a little back and forth on that and I can't remember the details.”

Review by
06/03/2015

“They were very punctual in answering my emergency calls. It was really needed in the wintertime, and they took the extra effort. They came out and completed the work, so it was fine. They repaired some issues on the roof. I've had previous experiences with them. I had other roofers. I didn't like their work very well, but Champion did come out and do quality work, and their price was reasonable. I would say they’re an A.”

Review by
06/03/2015

“They were pretty responsive to my request. They had to come out a couple of times to try and figure out where the leak was. They repaired the leak in the roof the last time. I think about three years ago or so, they put a whole new roof on my house. I would give them a B+. It took them a couple of times to figure out where the leak was and they got most of it but not all of it because they don't do repairs to my deck. I would absolutely recommend them.”

Review by
06/03/2015

“They came out right away. They gave me a fair estimate. They did the work on schedule, on time. There was no mess in the yard. The foreman came after the job was done to do a follow-up check to make sure everything was done correctly, and I was very happy with everything they did. I would recommend them to anybody. They did some kind of PVC type of material. They put it over my flat den in order to prevent leakage. They're an A+ for sure.”

Review by
06/03/2015

“They were awesome—small crew, very efficient. They took care of everything. The issues I had when they were done, they took care of them immediately after I paid them the final payment even though they wanted the money in there. They were efficient, they were clean, and they did a great job. They solved small stuff for me. It was gutter corners being on a down-angle so they would hold water. They chipped up the gutter corners so water wouldn't sit in the gutter corners. I had a leak in a gutter that I noticed, and they took care of that. I had a shed they did. They put edging on the shed. They had to use multiple pieces because they ran out of edging, and they came back and replaced that. Everything they did was awesome. Their price was great. I would recommend them to anyone. I would grade them as an A.”

Review by

“Champion Roofing put a new roof on my house. They did what they said they would do, and it didn't take a long time. It took a few days. They get an A.”

Review by
06/03/2015

“They did everything they were supposed to do on time. They did a regular roof. I chose them because of their reputation. I'd grade them as an A+. They did excellent work, and I had no complaints.”

Review by
06/03/2015

“They gave a good price, and they did excellent work. It was a brand new roof. It also included the garage, siding, and gutters. We had them in the past do repair work for us, and they also have a local office. I consider them to be an A.”

Review by
06/03/2015

“They did what they said they were going to do. They did some miscellaneous repairs on a commercial repair, and then when we had new equipment put on the roof, they flashed it and did a good job. They were competitive, and they were referred to me by somebody who I respect. I would grade them as an A+.”

Review by
06/03/2015

“They were responsive and gave me a quote quickly, and they were honest with me. Even though they couldn't do the work right away, they were at least honest and told me that they were busy, but that they would schedule it as soon as they could. It was just a minor repair. I would give them an A.”

Review by
05/29/2015

“I liked their timeliness, their promptness, and their work. I had some roof repairs done. They advised that I could either go for a complete roof replacement, or I could just get the roof repairs done. They quoted me for both options, and I preferred going with the repairs for now. I would give them an A rating.”

Review by
05/29/2015

“They were fast, thorough, neat, and tidy. They were polite, too. They put a new roof on my house. I chose Champion Roofing because I had several companies propose, but I liked the person who came out from Champion and did the proposal. I thought that they could do the best job. I thought they were very good. I would say they’re A+.”

Review by
05/29/2015

“They did a great job. I'm very happy with their work. They were fast, efficient, inexpensive and neat and they did good work. I think they just replaced the roof. My brother-in-law used them and had a very good experience. I would give them an A-.”

Review by
05/29/2015

“They were quick. They took care of everything really well actually, and any concerns that I tell them, they come out right away and look at everything so it was good. They replaced my roof. I chose them because of price. I would give them an A rating.”

Review by
05/29/2015

“I liked everything about them. They've done work on many office buildings. I chose them because of their better quality. They were easy to deal with, and they had good warranties. I would say they earned an A rating.”

Review by
05/29/2015

“They're fine. I'd give them very high marks. I liked their responsiveness, their understanding of the situation and good work was done. This was just gutters. There were two bids and I chose them. I'd give them an A.”

Review by
05/29/2015

“They did some mistakes. After speaking with them, they did make good on it. They did both roofing and gutters. I chose them because of a combination of having a referral and the estimates. I'd give them a B.”

Review by
05/29/2015

“It was wonderful working with them. They were honest and dependable, and they did what they said they were going to do. They repaired the roof. They're an A.”

Review by
05/29/2015

“They were on time and they did a decent job. It was a repair. I just chose them from reputation. I would give them a B. I would recommend them to friends.”

Review by
05/29/2015

“They're pretty good. They replaced the roof about six months ago. A friend referred me to them. Champion Roofing is excellent—they get an A. The guy who came over was a very nice guy.”

Review by
05/29/2015

“They're just great—very efficient and very professional. They did some repairs. I chose them because I've done work with them before. Everybody was very good. I'd say they're an A.”

Review by
05/29/2015

“They had a fair price, they did the job quickly, and they had a great clean up. They did a new roof. I chose them probably from pricing and reputation. I would give them an A rating.”

Review by
05/29/2015

“I was not real pleased. There was a problem with the chimney. The guy told me that I could arrange with my heating and air guy to repair the roof, and they were just totally uncooperative about coming back and finishing the job around the chimney. I couldn’t give them a very good rating. Actually, I was trying to get ahold of him, because I had had good reference from other people about them, and somehow it turned out that Champion and them were tied together somehow. I would give them a D. I was pretty unhappy with what they did to me. They promised that they were going to help me with this and come back and do it. When I tried to get ahold of them and talk to them, it was like I was and idiot and I was a jerk. I couldn’t recommendation them.”

Review by
05/29/2015

“They kind of gave me a hard time, so I’m not sure what I’m going to do when I get a roof done again. They didn’t want to do it after they said they started half of it. They turned around and they didn’t want to do it, so I started yelling and screaming, and they came back. It was crazy. It was repair. They quoted me something, and then they were like, ‘This is more money, so we’re not going to do it.’ I’m like, ‘This is what you quoted. This is what I signed. This is what we agreed, and this is what you’re going to do.’ They just wanted to leave me high and dry. That’s what people do in the roofing business. I wouldn’t use them again. I chose them over a different company because my HR director is friends with people who work for them. They came highly recommended and I felt screwed over.”

Review by
05/29/2015

“I’ve worked with them before, and the prior experience was great with outstanding customer service. Based on this last experience, I would probably grade them as average, meaning they won’t be my first option. Overall, I’d give them a C, because I’ve only used them twice. I first met with one of the reps, and he looked at what I need done and gave me the quote. He actually came in and did the work without even letting me know he was going to be here doing the work. Believe it or not, I have yet to go up on my roof to see what work he actually did, so I paid him for something I never saw completed. I really didn’t appreciate that. I had never heard of that, where someone would perform a service without letting you know, ‘I’m going to stop by and do the service.’ I didn’t think the guy even did the service. I ended up getting a bill, and that’s when I found out he showed up on a certain day. That is not a reflection of the entire organization but the gentleman who represented Champion Roofing. I’ve used them before, and that’s why I used them again. That’s probably the number-one reason why they will not be my first option, just based on my last experience. Eventually, I will get a ladder, and I will go look and see what work was done and cross my fingers and hope.”

Review by
05/29/2015

“I'm waiting right now for Champion Roofing. As far as I can tell, they do an excellent job. They were higher up and pricier than other quotes that we had gotten. I called them about a second job, and I'm still waiting to hear back from them. The work that they had done was give us a new chimney flashing, and that's what they did. The work was excellent. I wish they would be a little more timely. I guess I would call them an A-. The timeliness could use improvement. I chose them because they had an excellent reputation.”
