You can tell alot about a company by the employees they hire. TRC is a company of integrity. The project manager, Peter, came out and walked us through every detail of a new roof, siding and windows. He and His crew came out and completely transformed our home and when they were finished there wasn’t a trace that a total house facelift just happened except for the beauty they left behind. They are hard working, honest, dependable and always respectful.

Was totally impressed from the beginning visit to discuss replacing my roof to the final minute that the trucks left my property. Personnel were informative and caring in addition to giving me a good price that I could work with. The construction crew arrived ready to work and they sure did! Worked very hard for a day and a half and when they left, you couldn’t even tell they had replaced a roof because they were so thorough in their clean-up. Plus, the roof looks wonderful–matches the neighboring roofs in our community. Thank You, Total Roofing!

Thanks for working with me on getting my skylight removed from my townhome. I appreciate your flexibility with scheduling the work and the quality of the work your crew did.

Solar Removal

Residential and commercial solar systems have been getting installed for over 40 years. Maybe you are purchasing a property with an existing solar system or need a new roofing system installed. Our staff of professional installers of solar and roofing products can remove these systems in safe and proper ways. A key way to minimize costs and home improvement is with proactive maintenance.

The average solar system has a lifespan of 15 years, which means a variety of existing solar systems are either non-operational or have exceed their product lifecycle. Items to considers is that the more penetrations or flashings in a roofing system the potential issues (leaks). The sooner you correct these issues with either continual roofing maintenance or removal the faster you may prevent serious water damage. If you have questions or concerns, please set an appointment with our project manager and a member of team total will contact you.
