“…I want to thank you for making the whole process so pleasant, easy, and rewarding. You welcomed the myriad of questions with which we peppered you from start to finish and answered all of them with obvious concern that we would be completely satisfied.
As the point person for our POA, you made me feel as though I was part of the Enviroshake "family". Our roofer was also pleased with the individualized instructions you gave him and the easy access he had with your technical installation experts as he began installing his first couple of roofs. He felt very comfortable calling and getting quick responses to his questions.
And last, but not least, I want to thank you for introducing us to the most wonderful, Eco-friendly, structurally sound, and beautiful substitute for cedar shake shingles imaginable.
Not only do they look like (but better than) our old cedar shakes, but these
are the last roofs we will ever have to put on and our insurance rates have been favorably impacted. To sum it up, we love them! ” Thank you so much! - Susan Cook, Hotsprings, AK
