Review by in Newton, MA
Jose the owner of the company is very pleasant, he is shy but extremely professional, responsible and competent. Besides doing a wonderful job with my roof, they left the outside very clean. I called Jose after the job was done to check on something in my roof and he came the same day. Their response and warranty of their job is real! they are not finished until the customer is fully happy and satisfied. I highly recommend this company!

The owner was very responsive and got a crew over quickly to remove ice from our roof. The crew themselves were fine.

Competent & professional. Was quick to identify the problem (others either didn't know or were wrong). I would have given all 5s except he missed an appointment with me without notice. He did complete the work as promised and was right on regarding the problem, He was on target with both the project and cost. Would hire him again for roof issues

JFO did an emergency repair of my roof where a windstorm had blown off a dozen shingles and rainwater was leaking into the attic and the rooms below. I contacted JFO on a Sunday afternoon, they called back Monday morning and had the roof repaired in the rain by noon the same day at an very reasonable price.

Review by Timna S. in Watertown, MA
I'm so disappointed with JFO Roofing. They really impressed me at first - they called within 30 minutes of my request online, and came out to assess my roof that very day! They gave me a quote, and said they would do the work (replace some trim & soffit) in the next 1-2 weeks. That was 7 WEEKS AGO. Not only has the work not been done, but I've called the office 2 or 3 times to find out what's going on. Every time the receptionist says someone will call me back, and no one ever has. Very disappointing, particularly since the price seemed reasonable for the project.

John and his crew were great. He was very responsive, showed up on time, did all the agreed upon work, and left the place clean when he finished. There were a couple minor hiccups along the way, but John took care of these things promptly and was communicative throughout the process. Would highly recommend.

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.

NOTE: Member service professional information confirmed as described above may change or expire over time; while HomeAdvisor attempts to maintain accurate and up-to-date information, and confirms changes when notified, we cannot guarantee that profile and screening information is accurate. Therefore, we recommend that before working with a service professional you verify that information presented is still current and/or acceptable to you.
