Suggest a roofer for a metal roof?

I’m a Church Hill resident on 31st ST and was looking through the CHPN to try to find some recommendations for a good metal and copper roofer in the area — or, to post on the blog to see if I could get some recommendations. I didn’t have any luck with referrals in the CHA Newsletter.

Any thoughts on how I could get some roofer recommendations? I see a lot of copper and metal roofs in the neighborhood, so surely somebody must have had some good experiences. Could I put up a post on the CHPN? Or is there another/better forum for this type of thing?

We used Hermitage Roofing for maintenance/repairs on our metal roof. Minus a couple of office errors, we were happy with the quality of their work.

What was the problem with referrals in the CHA newsletter? They don’t list them in the paper anymore, but they are supposed to be online at their website.

I have used Ed Unser of City Tin and Copper – 804-366-5844 for two roofs. His work is excellent and he stands behind it 100%.

Jamie Ryland is a "old roof" specialist working in Church Hill. He did repairs to my box gutters on 27th St. I would ask him for an estimate. He’s very busy & hard to get hold of. 894-314-5372. My neighbor used RW Harper & Son.

I am not a roofer, so do your own research, but: The original terne metal (mixture of tin and lead) is not available anymore. Most of the replacement materials either won’t look like the original roof, are really expensive, or both. However, if it isn’t leaking, but is rusty/worn out looking, you can have it coated with “silver dollar”/fibered aluminum coating which generally looks pretty good if done properly. If it has really minor leaks, you might be able to just use this coating (even though it isn’t technically designed as a sealant). If you have leaks, you can patch… Read more »

^^^ Sorry. Forgot to mention – and this is important – once you start coating with fibered aluminum, you want to keep doing it periodically, ideally BEFORE it becomes a problem again.

@crd — The referrals on the newsletter are where I started, but having tried all of them, I found that 1) the number is no longer in service or 2) the person never responded.

Ed Unser w/ City Tin and Copper is awesome and did a great job on our new copper porch roof, although the picture above looks like a tin roof. Unless you have $$$$ you’re probably better off trying to repair it on a roof that large.

Saunders Roofing was easy to work with and they provided a decent warranty.
