We needed a new roof for our old Victorian after storm damage. Our roof is incredibly complex, with multiple turrets, gables, chimneys, etc. - a real old Queen Anne from the 1890's, with a steep multi-story drop in the back, as we are on a hill. We got five quotes from area vendors. Marine Home Improvement's bid was in the low end, and they had (by far) the most comprehensive, positive reviews, so we contracted with them to do the job. We also added in complete gutter replacement, new fascia, and a short list of other frame repairs, figuring we might as well get everything done while they were up there. We sent the contract & deposit on August 7. Work started on September 5th, in the middle of a horrendous heat wave - in the 90's with 90%-plus humidity. Despite this, the crew showed up and cranked out the job. In the course of it they discovered that our roof had up to 5 layers of shingles to be removed, instead of the 2 layers that all 5 vendors had expected based on aerial surveys. Mike at Marine Home delivered the job as promised, without any discussion of price adjustments despite the fact that the labor was much more intensive than expected. We ran into a couple of snags during the job - some of the yard plantings were damaged (none fatally) from the demolition of the 5 layers of shingles and, despite the fact that we had been told to expect some minor damage, one of our condo members was quite upset about it, and we weren't satisfied with the appearance of one of the minor frame repairs Mike did for us. In both cases, Mike was pleasant and professional, and made sure we were satisfied with the resolution of our complaints before signing off on the job. I would contract with him again, and wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to others.

Project: Install or Replace an Asphalt Shingle Roof
This company was very quick to schedule an appoint for me. They gave me a good price to have my skylight replaced.

Hired the company in sept. 2017 to completely reside 3 sides of the house with cedar shingles and replace rakes, sills, trim, etc. The wrong shingles were delivered to the house THREE times before the right ones were delivered. Marine said the supplier was at fault for 2 of the wrong deliveries, but it was obvious Marine had no clue what shingles they were supposed to be using even though it was very clearly included in the signed estimate. The installers even started the siding using the wrong color shingles and I had stop them and tell them to remove what they had already done. When they stripped the house of the old cedar shingles, no tarps or drop cloth were put down to catch the debris. It all landed on top and destroyed the landscaping on the side of the house, which they left there overnight. When I told them about this, they moved all the debris to the other side of the lawn, with no tarp or anything underneath. They also damaged the inside window sill and trim when stripping. Once the work was finally underway, it became very obvious the installers had little to no experience installing cedar shingles. The installers were using half inch, tiny staples to fasten the shingles to the house. Completely insane. The minimum size of staple required for installation is 1 ΒΌ inch. The entire house would have been sided like this if I did not notice it because there was never any supervision. I would like to post pictures of job, but apparently you can't do so in the review. Once again, the shingles they had installed had to be stripped from the house because of the staples being used. We are now 2 weeks into the job with not 1 new shingle on the house. After I met with Mike, the owner, and went through all the problems, he assured me the final product will be great and he fired the crew that was originally working on the house. The entire job process was a nightmare. Although no other major issues came about throughout the job, it was still a giant headache. I was constantly reminding them the correct way to install the cedar shingles (I have no construction experience, I was simply reading the short set of installation instructions very visible on EVERY box of cedar shingles). Very inconsistent work. There were countless days I would leave work early to check on things because I had zero confidence in them. Overall, the end product looks good, not great. They did an awful job cleaning up the small debris at the end, I did most of it myself. Throughout the whole project I was constantly reminding Ralph what needed to be done, even though everything was detailed in the signed contract. There was confusion the entire time. The whole job ended up taking around 6 weeks (several other quotes said it was around a 1-2 week job). I had a punch list of things at the end of the job I asked them to do, which they did, this was a small positive. The installers that worked on the house the remaining time were very nice and polite. They did everything we initially agreed upon. They also replaced 2 aluminum downspouts for free. I ended up doing some of the punch list myself because I could not wait for them to finally finish. I would never recommend this company or use them again. When you are spending over $25k on home improvements, you want things done properly. Not the case with this company. I was never offered a discount or anything for the regretful decision of choosing Marine Home improvement to do the work. Pros: Lowest cost out of 4 estimates Cons: Poor craftsmanship, lack of attention to detail, inconsistent work, very poor cleanup, do not follow instructions, do not live up to expectations, lack of experience and/or competence to do intended job, extremely long completion time.
Response by Marine Home Improvement, Inc.: I do agree with some of the facts. The salesman and material supplier couldn't get there act together and brought the wrong product to the house. We since replaced the sales representative and are no longer using this distributor for our material needs. I am the one who found out that the staples being used were not the appropriate. So I told the crew to strip what they had done and clean up the mess they made. That crew was then dismissed and another crew took place. No more headaches after that. The customer was never on the job, his daddy was, and we both had a good understanding of what needed to be done. The job was completed to th

Marine Home Improvement did a great job with our siding project - they removed the existing shingles and installed new siding - everything went smoothly and they were responsive to questions. I would recommend to others.

The guys from Marine Home Improvement did a great job, they arrived at 6:45 in the morning, removed the old roof, installed the new roof, and cleaned up the area by 1:00 in the afternoon. New roof looks great, I was very impressed.

Project: Install or Replace an Asphalt Shingle Roof
I was very pleased with the work of Marine Home Improvement. They had great customer service, reasonable prices and quality work. They replaced my roof in 1 day and did a great job. It was a pleasure working with Michel, he was professional, and always quick to respond to any questions I had. I highly recommend Marine Home Improvement.

Project: Install or Replace an Asphalt Shingle Roof
Great workers. No wind yet but have had heavy rain twice in the last week and I haven't spotted any leaks. When the job was completed, they did a through cleaning. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.
