Review by William H. in Newton Center, MA
The short version is that they took my deposit to replace slates on my home, then didn't show up (without calling) or rescheduled 4 times over a two week period. I've cancelled the job and asked them to refund my deposit. Michelle in their office was extremely helpful and apologetic, but my experience is that the company cannot be relied upon.

Review by in Somerville, MA
The owner, Tom, is extremely knowledgeable about slate roofs and passionate about his company's service. I called them to assess a roof leak around a vent pipe. Another roofer had supposedly fixed it 6 months ago, but had begun leaking and staining the ceiling beneath the roof during heavy rains a few weeks ago. The former roofer had given a year guarantee on the seal, but refused to honor it. I called Raboin in desperation. Tom arrived on time to assess. He took time to show me photos and explain in detail the cause of the leak and how their company doesn't just seal around the existing pipe but creates a custom vent pipe cap and puts flashing around the pipe (nor tar sealant). I was impressed with Tom's thorough explanation and we hired them and had the work completed. The roof has withstood several recent heavy rains and we've had no more leaking into the ceiling. Tom no longer works on roofs himself, as I understand it, but his team was wonderful. They arrived promptly, were well-organized, completed the job within a day, and cleaned up meticulously. Their price was very reasonable--they charged the same price as the roofer who used tar sealant to fix the leak (which didn't last for 6 months) and they give a 20-year guarantee. I highly recommend this company!

Review by in Milton, MA
Tom, the owner is exceptionally knowledgeable about slate and copper roofs. From the time of initial assment to completion, Tom explains everything in precise detail. His crew was wonderful, very well organized and cleaned up after themselves. Slate and copper roofs are costly to maintain, but Tom helped me with prioritizing the work. I have completed 2 of 3 phases. Tom and his crew are amazing! I would highly recommend him if you are doing such specialized work.

Review by in Newton Center, MA
I had a lot of repair work done on my slate roof last year. I had to really keep on top of these guys to make sure they did the work according to standard slate roofing techniques. If you hire them, be sure to study up on the techniques and insist they do it right. My results ended up being okay, but I won't hire them again and wouldn't recommend them.

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.
