  • Customer service is top notch. I had some wind damage to my roof and Denis came out to take a look and give me an estimate. He was prompt, engaging, attentive and answered all of the questions I had regarding insurance and financing. I opted to go the repair route for now (for insurance reasons only) but will be replacing my roof in the next few years and calling Lifetime Roof & Solar to do the job.

  • Lifetime Roof and Solar was a great company to repair my damage roof. I worked with a very professional, knowledgeable, and skilled crew that gave my house a fresh look. Very appreciative to find a hard working company and will definitely hire again for any future roofing needs! Thank you!

  • We had a new roof put on our house with Lifetime and we cannot say enough about how great this company was to work with. Alex was so very helpful. From the beginning we we filed a claim, all through the insurance process and to the end when it was finished. The crew came early and finished the entire project in one day. Everything was cleaned up at the end and the work was fabulous. We would highly recommend this company for any roofing needs.

  • I had such an incredible experience with Alex! He was my project manager from start to finish and went out of his way to explain every step of the process from beginning to end. He has such a nice, easy going attitude and you can tell that he is very experienced in the roofing industry. He always told me straight up whether he recommended something and made the process very smooth. I'm a person who has A LOT of questions and he was always very patient in answering all of them for me and was very thorough. I cannot recommend Lifetime enough and cannot praise Alex enough for his professionalism, kindness, and expertise!

  • I highly recommend Lifetime Roof & Solar. We are very happy with the work they did replacing our roof. Their workers are reliable, fast, efficient and friendly.
