Review by in Linden, PA
Project: Install or Replace Metal Roofing
The salesman told me since my roof was in bad shape, that it would be 2-3 weeks when the job would be done. Estimated 2 day job. Garvin subcontracted the job, it was 7 weeks and took 6 days. In all fairness, three of the days was because of intermittent rain.

Review by Scottu P. in Watsontown, PA
The initial sales pitch sounded incredible and it sounded like the work was going to be done by Garvin Construction employees, so we hired them even though the price seemed a little high. We found out later it was higher because Garvin didn't do the work themselves, something that was NEVER mentioned until we found out ourselves after the workers showed up and started the job. Garvin subcontracted a "Chuck with a Truck" kind of business even though they specifically told us during the initial sales pitch that one of the reasons we could be confident in Garvin's work is because they weren't a Chuck with a Truck"- type business. In mid-May, we decided to hire them. In early June, we were told our roof work would begin at the end of July. At the beginning of July, we got a call from the finance company asking if the work was completed to our satisfaction because they would be releasing the funds to Garvin the next day. Garvin sent in their request for funds, claiming that the work was already done, when in fact it was not even begun yet! I received about 4-5 more calls like this throughout the month of July. The actual work started on July 20; keep in mind we were still under the impression it wasn't going to start until the end of the month. We received NO advanced notice otherwise. They just showed up the night before with a long flatbed trailer full of supplies. Then the issues began. First off, Garvin employees told us on several occasions it was a 2-day job. The "Chuck with a Truck" workers who showed up told us 3-4 days. It actually took a total of 2 weeks and 2 days from start to finish. The only time a Garvin employee showed up at the site was on the second day (oddly enough, no one from the work crew showed up or even called that day) only to put a Garvin Construction sign in the front yard. When I called Garvin to see if they knew why the roofers didn't show that day, they lied to me and said the subcontractor's truck broke down. However, the subcontractors later said there was a medical emergency which turned out to be the truth. The next time they worked ended up with a passer-by getting hurt (cannot say more about it as we are now being sued for this) by a sharp piece of roof debris. Garvin claims they are not responsible because the subcontractors have insurance and it is their problem, not Garvin's. Then why is it that WE are the ones getting sued when we did nothing wrong? Anyhow, the NEXT day after the injury, the subcontractors we're not being any more safety conscious. If someone got hurt around my worksite, you better be sure I'd triple check the safety protocols of my workers from there on out! Then as time slowly crept along and as the work was getting done a section at a time, we starting seeing that the quality of the workers wasn't as exemplary as the quality of work Garvin showed us on their initial sales pitch. Eventually (around day 11) I called them to ask why no one from Garvin had shown up to check their work since day 2 and to tell them there were concerns we had about the roof. Someone from Garvin did come out then but he acted like most of our concerns were not valid. Then before the work was finally finished, we made a list of issues. Thankfully a different representative from Garvin came back at that time and took ours concerns seriously. They fixed them for the most part. We were just happy to finally get our house back as well as stop worrying about any more safety hazards caused by the roofers (falling ladders, scraps of metal or wood left on roof that fell off, etc). At the end, even after all of the troubles we had with Garvin and their subcontractors, Garvin actually wanted us to take a picture of our new roof while holding a sign tat read something like "We love our new Garvin Metal Roof!" As if THAT was going to happen! We do not recommend this company.

Project: Install or Replace Metal Roofing
They were very professional. No high pressure. The job was done when they said it would be and they did the house and garage roof in one day. The installers reminded me of amish, no yelling back and forth. Each person knew their job and did not waste any time doing it. They cleaned up after themselves . nothing left laying around when they left. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

They were great. Sam explained the process, costs and time frames well; the cost wasn't much more than a complete tear off for a shingled roof. Keep in mind that production needs will increase the time frame (5-6 weeks from contract to install), and notice to install is generally the day before, but it is worth the wait and the expense.

Project: Install or Replace Metal Roofing
Workers worked like dogs from 8:30 to 6:30 on 2 days to get the job done no standing around doing nothing. VERY hard to communicate with the guys, even the one that spoke english was hard to communicate with. Roof Job looks excellent but they did a bad job of replacing lightning rods & wiring and lost some parts, they did correct that part of the job pretty good but for a while all I could see when I looked at the beautiful roof was the botched up job putting lightning rods & wiring back. Job was cleaned up very well. Overall I am pretty well satisfied with the job. I has not been thru a rain storm yet so don't know if there are any leaks.
