  • "Just stopped at that big red truck and no I don't need a new roof" Read Full Testimonial

    Nicholas M. of New Haven, CT

    Customer Testimonial

              Thought I might need a new roof, I know some of my neighbors have had theirs replaced. I saw some Red Brown Roofing trucks near my home so I stopped to ask if they could take a look at my roof. I was thanked for my inquiry, talked briefly about my concerns and invited to call the office to set up an appointment for a free estimate. I called the office and was surprised to actually have a real live person on the other end of the phone that actually could set up an appointment for me. Edward Griffin, the owner, met with me during the time slot for my appointment, He put up a ladder walked all over my roof, went up in the attic and then the good news. He said your roof looks great, you probably have another five years left on this one and told me the trouble signs to watch for as the roof gets older. He said just give the office a call if you have any concerns, he gave me his card and that's when I found out they have been in business since 1972. My charge free, my worries gone and my roofers business card tucked away for future. Thanks Edward

    Steve G. of Middlebury, CT

    Customer Testimonial

              Brown Roofing Company of Naugatuck just completed tearing off my old roof and installing a new one. i would highly recommend Brown to anyone in the complex who is contemplating a new roof. Brown's bid was the second lowest I received, thousands below the high bidder. Of the four bidders, only the Brown representative (a roofer, not just an estimator) went up onto the roof to inspect it. (I considered that telling.) He was also the only one who volunteered the number of squares involved and the cost of each square. The contract was pretty specific, but when I asked the manager (Eddie Griffin) to alter it to include several things, he readily agreed. Brown was the only company that required no payment up front. "Full payment on satisfactory completion of the job" was written into the contract. This company has been in business for forty years and has confidence in the quality of its work. Brown started the job when they said they would and they finished on schedule, as well (3 days). I've experienced roof replacement before, and this was by far the ost professional job I've seen. The crew was fast, efficient, thorough, and friendly. And it was a crew (aprox. seven men) not just one guy and a helper (which would have meant a week or more to finish the job). Unlike the other bidders, Brown uses dump trucks to haul away debris, meaning homeowners don't have to tolerate a monstrous dumpster sitting in their driveways for 3-5 days. Brown's crew and their equipment arrived each day at 7:00 AM. When they left at the end of each day, everything went with around the house to indicate they'd even been there. I suspect more and more homeowners in Steeplechase will begin to ponder roof issues as the years roll on. When they come to you for recommendations, I suggest you put Brown Roofing in the mix. -Steve G
