Testimonials

  • To Jim and the entire Horizon roofing crew ... thank you, Thank You, THANK YOU! The entire process - from estimate to completion - went flawlessly. I can't tell you how refreshing it is to deal with a company that delivers on what it promises, especially when it comes to both cost and timing. My roof looks fantastic, and they cleaned up so well that you can't even tell they were there!

  • When we decided to invest in windows, siding, and a new roof for our Ann Arbor home, my husband and I met with several other companies and contractors before deciding to go with Horizon Roofing Company. We wanted a local business that would meet our needs and budget and felt that Jim Edwards and Horizon would do just that. Jim was very knowledgeable and easy to work with. He took the time to understand our wants and the needs of our home. He then provided us with explanations and several options to make an informed decision. The products and materials he used to complete our multi-phase project were high quality and high value. We were very pleased with the crews who were knowledgeable, timely, and friendly. We highly recommend Horizon Roofing Company.

  • As a homeowner, the thing I despise the most is home improvement projects and process of interviewing potential companies to do the work. In the past I have limited my search for contractors to large, well established companies, feeling they were my best bet to get a fair price and a warranty I could rely on. After getting several quotes that all promised something different and who’s prices were all over the map I decided to give Horizon Roofing & Construction a chance. Being a new company I was a little nervous, but after meeting w Jim and having a brief discussion about what I wanted in product and price, it might of been the best decision I made. Jim was thorough and well educated in all areas of home improvement and his no non-sense approach to the project was refreshing. His crew showed up on time, got right to work and finished my roof before I was home from work, and to be honest, my house and landscaping never looked better. I have recommended Jim and Horizon Roofing & Construction to all my friends and family!!

  • Having a background in architecture, I know what it takes to replace a residential roof. Horizon did a fantastic job! Jim clearly explained the product and the process, and never tried to upsell the job. Horizon uses the best materials, the craftmanship on the metal trim shows the crew cares about the quality of their work. The crew was professional, polite, and they worked hard. The install on our 3,300 s.f. house was completed in 10 hours! They took extra measures to prevent possible damage to the house (boards over the windows, tarps to catch the tear off). We have not found any debris in the yard, and the deck was cleaner than before they started! I highly recommend Horizon, Jim and his crew are the best in the business.

  • My excursion into finding a replacement roof was challenging, to say the least. I had numerous roofing companies provide quotes with a wide delta in pricing. Comparing the quotes, I found many used the same materials, but the pricing was inconsistent. In addition that, I never felt that the quotes I received would be the actual amount I would owe due to uncertainty in findings once the shingles were removed. Many of the roofers that quoted wanted to retrofit an entire deck on a section of my home which has an unusual architecture. This alone drove up the quotes by thousands in materials and labor. I was about to sign with one roofing company that unfortunately quoted substantially higher than the cash I had saved to to replace my roof. I was mulling over the ridiculously high interest rate I was quoted for financing the remainder and receiving a lot of pressure from my wife to sign the deal. I tried one last roofing quote from Horizon Roofing in an attempt to find a better deal. Jim, the owner of Horizon came to my house in the early evening and spent quite a bit of time on my roof inspecting. It certainly was a lot longer than many of the others, but the presentation of my roofing issues by Jim was substantial. He provided me with documentation of every flaw, potential issue and a highly competitive quote. His explanation took into account my lack of knowledge of the roofing industry, but he didn’t hide anything. I received an exceptional education on roofing terms, what was going to be done, etc. In my questions, I asked why he didn’t quote the retrofit decking that others did, and he pointed out that it wasn’t necessary, then explained the structure underneath and how the extra decking would likely have caused severe leaking in other areas of the home. He expressed that his 25 years in construction has given him experience with older home construction techniques and how to apply modern materials and methods to ensure a proper fix is applied. I hired him immediately. Within a few days of signing the contract, I had a date that worked for both of us. Throughout the material ordering process and up until the day the work was to be done, I had excellent communication from him. Regular calls with progress reports, honesty about issues, and ownership of managing material shipment and dumpster deployment. Bright and early on construction day, the crew descended upon my home and hit the ground running. By time I left for work at 8:30am, they already had 1/3 of the roof stripped, with Jim working side by side with his crew - I was amazed. I came home around 2:30pm, to find them finishing up the roof and a few crew members making multiple laps around my home cleaning debris and hunting for nails. I spoke with the site foreman for a bit and found him to be exceptionally friendly and helpful. They were finished with my home by 4pm and left the yard in better condition than they found it. In the following weeks, we had some very heavy rainstorms, and each time, the day after, I would receive a follow up call from Jim making sure there weren’t any issues. Each time, I gladly reported we were dry as a bone and was left impressed that he cared enough to follow up after the check was cashed. I would highly recommend giving Horizon Roofing an opportunity to quote your roof. I was treated with respect, the work was exemplary, the price fair and the follow up was greatly appreciated. I have already recommended him to a couple family members and coworkers.
