We'd gotten quotes from other contractors that were either too pushy on their high price or only wanted to do quotes online without coming to talk to us. Steve came to the house, was down to earth, fully explained his product and our options, and worked a fair price into what we wanted. Other than the required hammering when putting down the new roof, we probably would never known the roofers were there. Steve also came by the house afterward for a quality check and to ensure we liked what we got - we did. Windows are our next project an K&S will be our first call.

We experienced severe hail damage to our siding and roof, requiring a complete replacement of both. K&S was professional every step of the way in helping restore our home. They worked with our insurance company, and delivered a quality product on time and on budget. TJ conducted a sound initial inspection and gave us a solid estimate with no surprises popping up along the way. The only chang orders that occurred were minimal and were either initiated by myself or presented as an optional add value for aesthetic reasons. TJ and his crew not only restored our home, but helped us update and modernize its aesthetic as well. The end product far exceeded my expectations and I couldn't be happier. I am an Architect, so I say this having experience with both exceptionally good and exceptionally bad contractors; K&S is a top notch company with professional and well trained crews, and one that I would happily hire again.

Very professional from the start. TJ was very helpful by offering ideas to get around potential issues. He also spent a good deal of time up front explaining why the product being used was first-rate. The crew cleaned thoroughly.

In addition to installing a new shingled rood, they also installed new gutters, vinyl siding, and window and door trim. All the work performed was on schedule and the work site was always cleaned at the end of the day. The quality of their work was exceptional! I have had many people come to by home to tell me I beautiful my home looks and requested the contact information of the contractor who did the work. My wife and I now feel that we live in a model home thanks to K&S. If your looking for a contractor who is very detailed oriented and who's quality of work is of the highest rating and at a fair market price, I would highly recommend K&S.

I cannot say enough about K&S, and especially TJ. From the day he came out to do the original estimate, through the final walk through he was always in contact and kept me updated. The wife and I had a little issue with our original color choice. When he came out with samples we realized it would not work with our current window colors. TJ spent a ton of time with us suggesting other color combos. He also was very patient while waiting for us (ok, me) to make a final decision. We trusted his suggestion, and could not be more happy. Our house looks great. The crews he had working on the house were friendly, professional, and did an awesome job. They even commented that that like to work with K&S, and being a small business owner myself I can appreciate knowing that they treat their employees well. I am very hands on when it comes to home remodel projects, K&S let me be involved in every step as much as I wanted. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

They took the time to explain the job and the materials to be used. They also did an excellent clean up.

K&S General Contracting were outstanding in every step of the process in replacing our old roof. In the quoting process ( 4 highly rated companies) Steve was professional, knowledgeable, and courteous as he listened to our questions and expectations. There was no pressure as he responded with facts and patience, With his 20 plus years as a roofer, Steve gave in depth answers that were easily understood. His concerns about customer needs to do the best roofing job possible were far more comprehensive than the other quotes that were received. No question went unanswered in our first meeting. Additional detail items concerning skylights were answered in telephone calls immediately even as we changed the size and type of skylights. No delays or the responses of getting back to you soon. Quotes were not greatly apart in costs but more important is getting the right professional to install the roof. Steve and his team were the right fit. K&S roofers supported our decision as they were punctual, hard working, knowledgeable, and courteous. All workers were aware of customer needs and willing to answer questions or explain roofing processes being done. Our roof was completed in 2 days even with 90 degree temperatures and high humidity. We now have a new updated roof with improved air flow as well as an added new skylight. Clean up process met every expectation as you could not tell that roofers were here. My wife is very pleased that none of her plants had any damage as all were covered and the workers were very careful as they did their jobs. All was just as Steve promised during the quoting process. If you read about K&S General Contracting on their website, I would support all that is stated through personal experience with our reroofing. Everyone representing the company, from Steve, Katie (Office and business), and Roofers were professional and customer driven. They are an outstanding group that works well together. If you need roof work, you should contact them.

K&S General Contracting is OUTSTANDING. We had a situation where squirrels chewed a hole thru our roof and made a home in our attic. We needed a new roof and needed it quickly. While we were evicting the squirrels we received three quotes. We felt the most confident choosing K&S. Steve sat down with us to explain the entire project. He assured us that our roof would be installed in a timely manner....he was true to his word. Between Steve and Katie they kept us informed from the time the first appointment was made for the quote until the completion of our roof. The installers went over and above protecting our property and shrubs. The cleanup after the project was completed was amazing. The roof was a tear-off...I never found a nail or other roofing material. K&S is a family run business that truly values their customers. We would not hesitate to recommend them to our family and friends. Job well done. THANKS K&S for making this so easy!
