I hired them in July 2020 to do a silver coat on my roof with a warranty. They were called out multiple times to complete the metalwork. It took them over a month to get that done. I just had chimney work done and the company informed me with pictures the roofers did not complete the silver coat on my roof. I cannot reach the company, as the phone number listed on their website is no longer in use. Thanks a lot! Stay away as they are not honest or reliable.

They were contracted to repair the soffit around my porch roof, to replace a down spout coming from my third floor. They replaced my porch roof and they wanted to replace shingles on my third floor b/c they were there. The roof was done, and still waiting for the down spout to be replaced and the soffit to be repaired. I have already sent them notification about my dissatisfaction. When they complete the job as contracted, I will update their rating


Very personable

4.5 Hazel G. Philadelphia, PA

The servicemen came on time, they did the work which they identified to be done and finished it cleanly and timely.


We have 3 projects on the roof in 3 houses for The first Response company. Mo and David are very professional and did a great job for the repairing shingle roof, repair gutter, and coating the flat roofs. They are very nice to explain the work when we do not understand. We re going to use this company for our other houses from now on.

On time and respectable

5.0 Robert G. Philadelphia, PA

I was really happy with the work that was done, they were on time and worked in a very professional manner and I believe they did a exceptional job.

5.0 Crystal B. Philadelphia, PA

I had a very good experience from start to finish. Even due to being caught up in the mix of a pandemic First Response was very dependable when it came to completing my skylight. I will definitely recommend this company to others and I will continue to use them for future projects.

HomeAdvisor allows Service Professionals to post information about themselves and their business on their profile. HomeAdvisor does not review or verify the information representations set forth in those profiles as they are self-reported by the Service Professional.

HomeAdvisor verifies state-level licensing where applicable - note: some states require local or county level licensing and you should verify whether or not your pro is properly licensed.
To find more licensing information for your state, visit our Licensing Requirements page.

Seal of Approval

What is the screening process that Service Professionals go through in order to become members of the HomeAdvisor network?

  1. Verify Trade License
    HomeAdvisor checks to see if the business carries the appropriate state-level license.
  2. Verify Insurance
    As a part of our screening process, we encourage professionals to carry general liability insurance. We require coverage for hundreds of services.
  3. Verification of State Business Filings
    For business types that require a Secretary of State filing, we confirm that the business is in good standing in the state in which it is located.
  4. Criminal Records Search
    HomeAdvisor uses 3rd party data sources to conduct a criminal search for any relevant criminal activity associated with the owner/principal of the business.
  5. Sex Offender Search
    We confirm that the owner/principal is not listed on the official state Sex Offender web site in the state in which the owner/principal of the company is located.
  6. Bankruptcy Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the history of the principal/owner of the business for bankruptcy filings by or against them.
  7. Legal Search for Civil Judgments
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for state level civil legal judgments entered against them.
  8. Liens Search
    We use 3rd party data sources to check the principal/owner of the business for liens placed against them.
  9. Identity Verification (SSN)
    HomeAdvisor verifies the social security number(s) of the owner/principal for identity check purposes. This check applies primarily to smaller business entities.
  10. Identity Verification (Reverse Phone Lookup)
    We conduct a reverse business phone lookup to identify records matching the phone number information provided by the business.
