It cost a great deal more than the estimate, though they did explain why.

7 June 2019 Wow! We just had a great experience with Kennedy Construction Group, LLC. From beginning to end, the salesman, the work crew, the scheduler and front office; the entire operation was professional and responsive. We had another project going on, window installers, and even that crew remarked how nice the roof looked and how efficient the crew was. We appreciate the roofing crew's dedication to completing the job as the rain interrupted them a few times over the three days they were here. They arrived early and stayed late and finished the job on time. I highly recommend Kennedy Construction Group, LLC for your roofing project. Mr. & Mrs. Perry

We picked Kennedy after receiving 8 estimates. They were competitive. Bob, our salesman, was great and gave us lots of insight into the roofing business and best practices. He was patient and listen to all our concerns and assured us of the quality and professionalism of his installers. They used top quality products (Owens Duration) with a 30 year warranty and 50 years on the labor. We needed a lot of additional decking due to the house's age and water damage over time. Robert, our foreman, showed us the extent of the damage before installing the new decking (extra $5000). The crew worked hard and was very respectful. They worked late into the evening to get the job done. Total time was 2 days. The roof looks great. We recommend them if you need a new roof.

Review by in Tampa, FL
Upon receiving a raving review from Home Advisor on Kennedy Construction Group LLC in January, 2019, I decided to have them replace my aging shingle roof. After an initial proposal of $9,600 dollars, Chip, the foreman of the team, notified me of several seriously problematic areas on the roof and said it would cost an additional $4,500 to complete the job. As much the old roof was torn off already, I figured I had no choice other than to pay the now exorbitant amount. In the end he failed to reattach the vinyl siding that had to be lifted in order to do the roofing. He never told me this when he did his final walk through on Jan 24, 2019. Only later when I climbed out an upstairs window in order to sweep leaves off the roof (which I have always done), did I notice that the siding was dangling and not fastened down. I sent several certified letters to Kennedy Construction alerting them of the problem and fully expecting a positive response. Chip had told me that the owner was handling the matter now. And, finally, Melvin Eugene (Gene) Kennedy did show up at my house trying to say that the problem was not theirs, and that the siding was already unattached. Of course this was not true, and even if it had been true, I would think Chip should have told me about it when he asked for my final payment and verified that the roof was secure. Mr. Kennedy finally seemed to agree and told me that I could use J and D Renovations and Repair (a company I had hired for another job) to finish and secure the siding, and that he would give me $350.00 of the $400.00 that the job would cost. We shook hands and Dan of J and D did an outstanding job of reattaching the siding. Dan also pointed out two small areas where the roofing did not quite reach the siding. This could not have been noticed before the siding was reinstalled. I figured I would wait until I received the $350.00 before telling Mr. Kennedy about the problem. But the $350.00 never came. After a week I messaged Gene Kennedy and he said there were bookkeeping problems and the check was in the mail. It wasnt and isnt. In the past couple of weeks I have sent the company pictures of the two problem areas and also reminded them about the promised $350.00 dollars: no response. Kennedy Roofing got their final check on January 24,2019, promptly after Chip s positive walk through. It is now May 30, 2019, and I am still waiting for answers to a roofing problem and the promised $350.00 dollars. I am a senior citizen and the $14,100 (plus $450 for the siding) dollars that I paid to have my very modest house re-shingled was a more than sufficient amount of money for me to now feel I should have no fears about my roof. That is far from the way I now feel. The *professionals* that Home Advisor recommended have not been very *professional*, and unless they contact me soon to address their shortcomings, I feel the worse possible review is the only one that I can provide.
Response by Kennedy Construction Groups, LLC: Dear David B, Very harsh and unfortunate that we have to respond in this manner. This roofing project permit number BTR-19-0493387 was done and and passed final inspection by the Hillsborough County Building Department on Jan. 24th 2019. Mr. K.[Consumer name withheld at their request] went out personally to look at the issue and try to rectify the situation for the customer and explained that the Roofing Installation has nothing to do with his loose siding and that there are other issues with siding and soffit and that it was existing before KCG did the roof and showed him why (the customer took the screen out of a large second story window and was able to clearly see!) However the customer was not not satisfied with the answer, and had already hired J and D Renovations which appears to be unlicensed Handyman to make Repairs to the siding and Soffit in several areas! No additional Permits were found for that work! We wanted to make sure at the end of the day that this customer was satisfied so Mr. K.[Consumer name withheld at their request] agreed to make a one time payment of $350.00 towards this repair just to make sure that the customer was satisfied. We asked that an invoice be sent to the office or our book keeper (Kathy@kcXXXX) we still have not received an invoice from the customer or J and D. please call or send invoice for payment? Please call the office directly the numbers are on the invoice 813-XXXX, if you have any questions, we truly want to make sure that you are satisfied. Please do not text cell phones, all communication needs to go through the office to make sure it gets received. respectfully...... All Permitting information and photos of this project are available upon request.

Review by in Punta Gorda, FL
Everyone associated with KCG was nothing less than top-notch from start to finish! Dan Tucker was straight up and honest, provided me with a detailed quote, and went over it thoroughly with me. Larry Kirsch and his crew were outstanding! They worked hard, fast, and professionally! Much attention to detail, and continually cleaning up around the work site. Larry kept me informed every step of the way Despite a "rain delay", they completed the job in one day. I have already recommended KCG to several of my co-workers. Re-roofing a home is a substantial expense, and dealing with the level of honesty, quality, and integrity that KCG exhibited gave me great peace of mind,and a feeling that I made an investment in my home, rather than just spending money on it!! If I could rate higher than 5 stars, I would!!
