Hard working roofing crew. Site Foreman Curran was very diligent and professional.

Would recommend Balken




The roof looks great and no longer leaks. All the people I dealt with at Balken were easy to work with and professional. The cost was much more than I had planned for but I realize there were other repairs needed to the roof other than just shingles. The job was finished quickly and I would recommend Balken to my neighbors . Thanks, Lee Combs I

new roof




Very strong communication from start to finish. They were excellent in adjusting their schedule to assist in getting our new roof completed prior to the holidays. They have a first-rate team and are fun to work with. The quality of their work was great - as was their clean-up.

Great service, workmanship and price




Your team was excellent all the way around. From the estimate to the scheduling to the actual work. You did what you said you'd do, when and how you said you'd do it. That's too rare these days.

pricey but did the job quickly




The work was done promptly. I won't know if it was done well until it rains but it seemed like a good job. The office refused to put the job address separate from the payers address. They seemed offended that I would want the bill made out correctly for taxes. If your job is in an office, 5 seconds of typing doesn't seem like it would be that hard.
