We feel that the cleanup was not properly attended to. We had to pick up soda and water bottles, paper, pieces of metal and worst of all, metal nails in the driveway. Our roof is fine, but I wish I had chosen another company that was $3500 less. The roof does not leak and for that we care very grateful.

A-ABEL returned my call quickly. After a thorough inspection of my roof and an explanation of the scope of work a reasonable estimate was given. The roofing knowledge of Mr. Abel was outstanding. A-ABEL did a great job on my roof. From the estimate to the final clean-up I would highly recommend them. The office and field people were great to work with.

A-Abel returned the original call promptly, gave a competitive bid, used quality materials, and worked with us on some special requests. They showed up when promised and finished early. The roof looks great!

They had a large crew and worked very well together. They completed the project in less than a day. This was a complete tear off of the existing roof and they did an excellent job of cleaning up.

I live in New York and my parents live in Midlothian, Illinois. They are in their 80’s and when they needed a new roof on their home, I met with and received quotes from 8 local contractors on one of my trips back home.
The house is over 100 years old, and has many changes/additions through the years so the roof is a mix of pitch, areas, and joints. Every area is different. My father wanted a simple re-roof done over the job that was a Tear Off 18 years ago, so that is what I explained to the 8 bidders.
One of the Contractors said they would re-roof over the existing 1 layer (which would still be to code), but all 7 of the other contractors would only quote a complete Tear Off because they could not personally guarantee their work based the previous roofers work and the many angels and joints. Those 7 all would rather decline the job than compromise their Quality. Originally I was also thinking a re-roof would work, but after talking with each of the companies, I was convinced the Tear Off was required. This was not a “standard” Re-Roof job. Scratch 1 contractor from the list.
After completing the Reference checks and quote reviews on the 7 potential contractors, I met with the final 2 "contenders" and added some additional specifications for them to quote:
Removing no longer used chimneys on the house and garage
- Structurally, they were a risk of falling and causing roof damage, and,
- Are a potential leak point because of their age and condition.
Additionally, I let them know it was just them or someone else, and we would make our decision immediately after getting both revised quotes. We selected Jeff and A-Abel Roofing.
We coordinated with Jeff in advance for the work to be done during my scheduled trip back home last week. Rain caused a 1 day delay, and because of my limited time back home, Jeff had a crew of 6 guys on the job the next day. They finished on time, and I am very impressed with the Quality of their work and attention to detail. The extra effort to complete the job while I was in town, extra Ice and Water Shield, extra drip guards, the removal and new fascia work on the chimney, and attention to detail on the job and clean-up was outstanding.
As an Engineer, I appreciate Jeff and A-Abel taking the time to explain the details of the job to me, and his reasoning for specific recommendations. His personal attention to detail, customer service style, respect toward me and my parents, and the Quality of Work is impressive. No, he was not the lowest cost of the potential contractors, but I strongly believe he provided the best value.
I strongly recommend Jeff and A-Abel Roofing. I could not find a better Roofer. They do exceptional work, with outstanding service, at a Good price.
Now my Aunt and Cousins are also going to have them re-roof their house.
