I'm singing a happy little thank-you song in my head! We are so pleased the price for building-up the roof foundation was much less than we were expecting. Wonderful news! Huzzah! And, thank you for leaving things so clean and nice. When another roofing company did work for us in the past our yard in the front and back was a mess for days. Even when you weren't finished yet you left such a small footprint. I especially appreciate it because it is hard to keep our 6 year old daughter away from the back yard and there was very little to watch-out for. And boy, there is nothing quite like the feeling that comes with knowing we have a safe, new roof over our heads! Look forward to getting your quote on tuck-pointing all the walls of our house.
We had a great experience working with R. Thomas Daniel Roofing. We were under a very tight timeline to make roof repairs and Tom moved very quickly to make those repairs. Tom communicated clearly on both price and timeline. We highly recommend R. Thomas Daniel Roofing.
Tom, the new flat roof looks great. The skylight looks good, the roof hatch lifts off nicely. The slate roof was completed today; looks amazing! I am not used to seeing tiles all neat in a row! Extra kudos to the clean up! Your crew did a fantastic job cleaning up the yard/stoop, sidewalk and neighbors' areas once completed. Many thanks!
Some 13 years after Tom and his father Robert Daniel had replaced our roof, we decided it was time for a new one, even though we had no issue with the current one, which had been guaranteed to last 12 years. Tom Daniel made the whole process super easy. I was not stuck at home waiting for his men to come and check out the work site - they did that while I was out. I got the contract via e-mail, another easy step. Mr. Daniel's crew arrived on time on the appointed day, and was well-organized. The old roof was promptly dismantled and evacuated, the new one set up efficiently and cleanly. Everyone worked tirelessly for some 12 hours straight, no one complained and by the end of the day, the roof was done. I'm very grateful that the crew took old TV antennas and dishes from the roof, without charge. The job site was left very clean and I did not have to worry about sweeping dirt, etc. The price of the roof was reasonable and there were no unexpected charges. Now I have to cross my fingers that Mr. Daniel will be around the next time I need my roof changed! Peace of mind is priceless and it's nice to be able to trust people to do a good job for you.
Tom Daniel meets all the qualities that one needs in a roofing contractor. Not only does the job start promptly, is finished on time, and the area is clean when they leave, but most importantly he is trustworthy. When he says a repair is needed, I know that is both necessary and the cost will be reasonable. I can recommend him without hesitation.
After years of assurances from General Contractors that this, that or the other repair would work, we got Tom Daniel to replace the whole roof with a new copper roof. It is so nice to feel snug during the last few weeks of rain! Had I known the price would be so reasonable, I would have done it long ago. And, it looks handsome, too!
"Just wanted to let you know you fixed our leaky roof! No leaks at all with all the rain we have been having. Thanks so much!"
"Thank you for the work you performed in installing our new copper roof. The roof is beautiful and, more importantly, free of leaks. I appreciated the way that you brought the sub roof back up to level to eliminate the pooling and installed a slanted area where the location of the chimney had created a corner that tended to trap water. Vicky and I particularly appreciated your explanation of alternative roofing materials and the discussion of your approach to dealing with specific issues, such as the old skylight, the roof-mounted air conditioning compressor and the area of the roof that sagged. While copper was the most expensive material, we now have a roof that should last for decades. Thanks again for the good work."
"The challenge in hiring a roofer is threefold: 1) Find someone who knows what they are doing, especially in dealing with historic homes, 2) Find someone who isn't going to oversell a product you don't need or overprice a job, and 3) Find someone who is going to respond quickly when you need him. We've owned and managed residential and commercial buildings in the Capitol Hill neighborhood for almost forty years... we have finally found a roofer who satisfies all three criteria. We highly recommend R. Thomas Daniels Roofing as a high quality, reasonably priced, and reliable roofing company."
"As members of Capitol Hill Village, we couldn't be more pleased with our overall experience dealing with you. The work is top quality, reasonably priced and was done in a timely manner. Thank you so much!"
Tom was terrific to deal with. Others on my street had recommended him highly. He was very responsive, came when he said he would and did what he said he would do in the time that he said it would take. We are completely satisfied.
"Thank you for responding so thoroughly and quickly. We are pleased to accept your quotation for the tuck-pointing of 4 chimneys. Your well written proposal with its careful attention to all the details of our diverse needs certainly impressed us."
"Tom’s service was excellent, reasonably priced and friendly. I’ve recommended him to friends and family. I like that it’s a long time Capitol Hill business."
"Just wanted to let you know your roof repairs have held up to the rains! We can't thank you enough, and have recommended you to Moms On The Hill and others."
"We were fortunate enough to discover Tom Daniel through a profile in “The Hill Rag”. He knows how to diagnose problems with smart, economical repairs. Thanks to him our roof is now in better shape than it was when we had it replaced years ago by another firm. We can’t imagine now that we would need his services any time within the next 15 years, but if any damages occur, he’s the only roofer we would think of calling."
Thanks again for the good work you and your team completed with my new roof, slate turret and copper built-in-gutter. I will rest much easier this year (for the first time in a long time!) during the rains and storms of the DC summer. And, thank you again for recommending the copper finial. It looks fantastic!
"Thank you so much for the fabulous roof! The modified bitumen was a good choice because it has a 12 year manufacturer warranty and white reflective granules to improve energy efficiency. We had received an estimate from another company and chose R Thomas Daniel Roofing because you provided the most cost effective estimate and were not trying to push us to buy products that we did not need. Thank you also for accommodating our request to change the date when we had an unexpected problem. We also love the new skylight. We will continue to use R Thomas Daniel Roofing in the future if we have any roofing needs, and we recommend them for all your roofing needs."
"I really appreciate that you fitted me into your schedule earlier than the first week June. These heavy storms this week are scary, but I have a comfort level knowing that you examined and patched my roof. Thank you so much. "
"We had a good test yesterday for your repairs around the skylight. We passed with flying colors - no water entry. Many Thanks!"
"I recently had a bitumen roof installed by R Thomas Daniel Roofing. I received four bids and chose Tom’s company after reading a complimentary article about his multi-decade business in a Capitol Hill newspaper and deciding that Tom’s recommendation from the many options fit my budget. I found Tom to be very responsive in returning my calls and emails and answering my questions prior to commencing the work. The work started on time, went according to plan and finished on time. Tom and his crew were very conscientious of my property as far as avoiding damage to the garden and in their clean-up. All in all, this was one of the biggest house projects I’ve undertaken and happily the easiest on my time and attention. Thanks to Tom and his crew."
As a property management company, we manage residential property primarily in the Capitol Hill area of Washington, D.C. We have used R. Thomas Daniel Roofing for all of our roofing needs including repair and replacement. Tom Daniel provides competitive priced estimates within a few days. He schedules the work in a timely manner and the roofing work is always excellent. Dealing with property management work is difficult because the roofer has to deal with our office, the tenants of the house, and in many cases, the owner of the property. Tom has been very professional in dealing with all of these individuals. I will continue to use R. Thomas Daniel Roofing in the future without any reservation and highly recommend them for all your roofing needs.
"The tuck-pointing work on the chimneys looks great and your guys were very professional. Thanks for doing a great job - I'll be sure to recommend you for future work."
"Thanks again for taking care of us. It's great to have our new roofer living on Capitol Hill."
"Just wanted to let you know you fixed our leaky roof! No leaks at all with all the rain we have been having. Thanks so much!”
"Thanks for making this home water-tight! We appreciate your help and professionalism, especially when it rains, but will recommend your roofing company rain or shine!"
"Tom, thank you. What a great relief to have the repairs on the chimney. For months I have worried about it falling down. You have given me the best holiday present ever."
"Thank you so very much Tom! I appreciate the work you did to fix the leaks and beautifully apply the roof coating. The dogleg roof is prettier now than when we bought the house in 2003. I am glad we contracted with you and will highly recommend you."
