Member Comments:We had Joe and Steve from Mortenson Roofing Co. come out to our almost 100-year-old house in Muncie, Indiana, to make repairs to our tile roof. Their work was fast, quick and they went out of their way (several times) to complete the job perfectly. But it wasn't just Joe and Steve who impressed us; their office staff, Ken, the manager, and the people we dealt with via email, helped make the entire experience completely painless. We had searched and searched for a company that would repair our antique tile roof for something less than a fortune - but we didn't want to sacrifice quality work. We don't mind paying for quality work, but the quotes we had prior to contacting Mortenson were ridiculous. Mortenson quoted us a fair price and completed the job on budget and in less time than expected. If we ever need roof work again, or if we ever know anyone who needs quality roof work done, Mortenson Roofing Co. will be the first place we call.

Description of Work:Roof Replacement (cedar shingle to slate)
Member Comments:Mortenson Roofing - I appreciate everything you did for us. I know it was not the easiest project for you. Long story short:
Project: roof replacement
Reason: water in dining room and maids living quarters
First Step: Make appointments, collect proposals
Second Step: Decision, decision, decision...
Third Step: Find a good time to start the project
Then, time to start. The big project made me nervous. (Unnecessary) Ken, Jeff, Rick, and everyone who use to work for us - thank you so very much!! Thank you for your professionalism, excellent work, and great customer service.

Member Comments:We hired Mortenson Roofing to help repair our tile roof on our 1926 Spanish stucco style home in Park Ridge. Every time it rained, we would get water in our living room. I had called 3 roofers out before finding Mortenson and all of them said they couldn't/wouldn't work on a tile roof. So, when my neighbor gave me Mortenson's card, I was cautiously hopeful. After making the call, their salesman Ken Swart set up an appointment with me to come see the roof. He was very easy to communicate with and accommodated my schedule. He climbed up on the ladder, took pictures of the problem and confidently told me that they could fix my problem. He also gave me a copy of the Know Your Consumer Rights brochure which is required by law (a mark of a professional contractor). I received the invoice in the mail a few days later, it was detailed and broken out by option. After contemplating the work for a few weeks (maybe months), we decided to go for it. They take credit cards which is a huge perk for those of us who like to earn miles! I paid 25% down and scheduled my job. On the day of the job, the two roofers arrived before schedule but patiently waited in their van until the official "start time." Tony and his assistant were very polite and efficient. They were able to repair the roof without any major issues and ended up replacing the flashing. The job looks beautiful, I'm so happy we found Mortenson. I actually want it to rain to test it out! I will definitely be using them in the future if we have any roof issues.

Description of Work:Concrete tile roof maintenance. Provided and replaced a broken concrete hip tile, replaced 5 cracked concrete tiles (from our personal supply of spares), removed and replaced rotten lip board that holds a row of concrete tiles. Inspected the roof for maintenance issues.
Member Comments:Ken, our estimator, took a few days to contact us and make an appointment but once it was set up he was prompt, courteous and clearly knew how a concrete tile roof is constructed and how it should be maintained. He took several pictures and a video, explained the job, and was quick to turn around the estimate. Joe, our installer and his assistance were very prompt. (Joe called as he was coming to tell us when he would arrive, too.) Ken had met with Joe to show him the pictures and video and explain the job, so Joe knew just what needed to be done when he arrived. They were careful about walking on the tile roof (no additional cracks), very courteous, explained all that they did as they were doing it, and asked for confirmation of each step to be done. It was clear that they knew how to work on a tile roof. they were thorough, neat, and effective.

Description of Work:Repaired our 1916 clay tile roof. Repaired the gutters around it. Replaced 85 clay tiles with exactly the same color tiles dated 1925. Replaced a valley in between the clay tiles.
Member Comments:Two roofers came. They both were very polite and very knowledgeable. One had 20+ years experience with slate and clay tile roof. They worked steadily for 3 days, all day from 8 till 4, in blazing heat. They were on time every day. Every day they cleaned up and took all the garbage and debris. We had leaks in several locations of the roof, since the work was completed no problems whatsoever. Prior to the work Mortenson sent us a highly knowledgeable former roofer, also a specialist with slate and clay roofs, who assessed the work to be done, this was well coordinated with roofers and the front office who made the contract. I also had a competitor come and do the same thing, the result was a ridiculous $ estimate, and an arrogant attitude, and not being able to come for 3 months at least. So the choice was clear = Mortenson. BTW: On purpose I waited several months to write this review to make sure that we had a few good rains to determine the success of the work!

Member Comments:Mortenson inspects our tile/shingle roof every other year then makes repairs – 1929 roof. On time. Did a professional job. Very easy to talk too. Bought the house in 1995. They did an extensive repair, have maintained it since. Have never another roofing company, so I can not compare cost. We have been very happy with them.

Member Comments:They installed copper gutters and did repair/maintenance work on the slate roof of my previous house years ago. I like them so much that when I moved to Northwest IN I called them instead of a more local contractor. All work was done beautifully. They are very good about explaining what they are doing and keeping in contact with you about when they are coming out, etc. The City gave them some grief, and they handled it very professionally and did everything they needed to do to appease them and get the job completed. Definitely recommend them.
