Residential Roof Installation
We searched all over Montana and eastern Idaho for a certified installer, but could find no one experienced in applying this roofing system. Kyle Walker of Walker Brothers Roofing was willing to write a contract that was very competitive with that of an experienced local company that was willing to “go to school” to learn the application. Kyle’s estimates were right on target. Deliveries were also right on target. We couldn’t have been more pleased with the installation, detailing and appearance. Every detail of our contract, including cleanup, was met to our satisfaction. We can certainly recommend Walker Brothers Roofing’s skill, commitment and quality service. It was a pleasure to see Kyle and his brother Ryan in action.
