5 out of 5 stars. We hired Ron to replace an asphalt shingle roof that was failing rapidly, with a new metal one. We needed quick work before damage worsened, and we are part time residents on the east side of the Island where contractors are hard to find. Ron and his crew returned our calls, answered our questions, arrived and did the work when promised, did a nice looking professional job, cleaned up very well after the job, and stayed on budget. We were off island during the job, but Ron kept in touch and sent photos. Contractors here typically need a large up-front payment to cover the cost of materials. Ron allowed us to pay the supplier directly to alleviate our worries about a large advance payment. Ron’s rates were not cheap, but it was worth it to us to have the peace of mind of a responsible and licensed contractor. Can’t say exactly how his bid compared with competitors as I couldn’t get more than “bubba bids” (well it’ll be around XX $) to compare to. On the mainland, Ron would be one of the better contractors in town. Here on the Big Island, he is way, way in front of the pack. Highly recommend him to anyone needing a new roof, especially if you aren’t a long-time resident with the connections to easily find a reliable local for the job.
