The owner, Vasilie, was prompt, polite, and gave me a solid estimate for the repair and replacement of my porch roof shingles after years of water damage and shoddy original construction work. Every scrap of shingle was removed from the grounds – all that’s left is my sharp-looking new roof. When it’s time to replace the main roof, I will be calling Vasilie to do the work.Update – 5/2019. So it was time to replace my main roof, and I gave Vasilie a call. Out of the three companies I called, he called back *immediately*, while the other two tooks weeks of chasing and phone tag to nail down an estimate. He showed up to my house 2 days after calling to give me an estimate. While it wasn’t the lowest quote, we were able to negotiate a price based on the quality of the shingles, the length of warranty, and the quality of Vasilie’s previous work on my porch roof. Work was completed in the estimated two days, all nails and scrap material was removed, and my roof looks great! Tae Kim Source: Google
Excellent work, beautiful finish. Salesman was clear and not pushy at all. We shopped around quite a bit and found Major Home Improvements to be the best work for the best price. Michael Braidman Source: Google
We have a colonial with 2 car attached garage that was badly in need of a new roof. I had obtained several high estimates, including one from a well-known box store and another from a local company that advertises heavily on television. In town, I noticed a large house having a roof and siding installed by Major Home Improvements. I contacted Vasilie Kukharchuk for an estimate for a new roof. Vasilie was honest and knowledgeable in assessing the condition of our roof. He explained the variables used to determine the price for a new roof, including: size and pitch, accessibility, and the cost of materials. He indicated that after the tear-off, he would assess the condition of the plywood and 2x4s. Vasilie discussed the required flashing methods and lumber options to use for fascia boards and cited details about the technology of a new roof. Lastly, Vasilie stated the warranty and gave me a fair, competitive estimate. Shingles and materials arrived the day before construction. The crew began work at 7:30 a.m. They are an experienced and cohesive crew who worked efficiently and quickly together throughout a very hot summer day with temperatures soaring to 93 and humidity of 96%. Before stripping off old shingles, the crew ensured that our windows were closed. They attached drop cloths over the gutters so the removal of old shingles did not damage clapboards, windows, or foundation plantings. Once the old roof was torn off, Vasilie determined that we needed numerous replacement sheets of plywood and 2x4s. Even after that determination was made, Vasilie continued to stop by and oversee the progress of the new roof. The crew was extremely hard-working. Throughout construction, one crewman was dedicated to clean-up. Gutters and downspouts were cleared with a leaf blower. After the roof was installed, the cleaner walked the perimeter of the house with a large magnet to attract stray nails. Despite needing replacement sheets of plywood and 2x4s, the roof was completed in 1.5 days. The professional installation of our solid, warrantied roof adds to our energy efficiency and curb appeal. More importantly, our new roof will keep our home dry and warm against the elements and hardships of Mother Nature in Western Mass. Thank you, Vasilie and crew, for a professional, expertly-constructed new roof! We heartily endorse Major Home Improvements for any roofing needs. w murr Source: Google

Your Roofing and Storm Damages to Watch For
Maintenance of your home’s roof goes far beyond having leaks fixed when you find water dripping into your home. You also need to be diligent when it comes to caring for your roof both before and after storms. If you don’t take precautions before a storm, then your roof may be more at-risk of excessive damage. If you don’t take care of damage caused by a storm after the storm, then what would have normally been minor repairs can end up being huge issues soon after. With any repairs, consider calling out roofing contractors Blandford MA.
How to Care for a Roof Before a Storm
When you get the news that a serious storm is approaching, you want to go out and look for potential threats that can leave your roof falling victim to the storm. Things like tree branches that hang over the roof and rain gutters that are full of leaves should be taken care of. Otherwise, the branches can break during the storm and cause damage to the roof when it crashes down on it. The gutters are there to catch water and allow it to be carried away down the downspout. When the gutters are full, the water gets trapped where it will weigh down the gutters and this can lead to damage of the gutters and even the eaves of the house.
How to Care for a Roof After a Storm
Once a harsh storm has hit and passed through your area, it’s time to go outside and check the roof for any damages. The first step to checking for roof damage from a storm can actually start by checking the yard for signs that shingles have flown off. You also want to look on the roof to see if there are bare spots where shingles once were. You can also check in the attic for signs of a leaky roof. If you do find any damage, then calling out roofing contractors blandford ma will help you to get the roofing issues taken care of.
