It has been a pleasure working with Jamey, and his team to replace the roof on our bungalow. Every member of his team were unfailingly courteous and friendly during the six days they were working on our property. When decisions were needed, they explained things clearly, and reported on the results. They made every effort to ensure we were not inconvenienced while they worked and took great care every day to clean up our property and leave their materials out of our way and tidily arranged. Finally, the estimating process was fair and thoroughly explained with sufficient time given for us to consider colour and style choice. I unconditionally recommended Rikcar Roofing and Siding.

We had an incredible experience with Rikcar. We recently had them redo our roof and they were able to swing it while we were away on vacation. We left with an old roof and came home to a beautiful new one and we were shocked at how clean they had left our yard and the area around the house. There were barely any signs that they had even been there, other than the new roof of course! The neighbours all have complimented how nice it looks and the guy across the street immediately asked me for their card. Definitely a company I recommend!

Great job, good price, very happy with our new roof! Guys kept the property very tidy during and after completion. Also nice to see a boss so considerate of his employees and their well being. Will recommend your company to anyone needing your services.

The Rikcar crew did a great job. They were very professional and followed all the safety regulations. They took their time to make sure everything was done properly. What my wife really liked, was that the site was always clean and tidy. What I liked was the price, which I found very competitive. The crew were friendly & trustworthy and we would recommend Rikcar to everyone.

Jamey and his crew are safety conscience professionals. They were friendly and thoughtful when they ensured my neighbour was satisfied with their cleanup after the job was done. I am pleased with their high quality workmanship and have recommended them to my friends.

My wife and I are very pleased at the work that was done by Rikcar. From the preparation to cleanup was professional and competent. They consulted with us throughout the job if anything was unexpected. I would definitely recommend them.

Bob & Nancy H

We had a terrible leak in one of your bedrooms every time there was a significant downpour of rain and we were going to be away. We knew we needed the roof repaired in some way and we got Jamey’s name from a friend who had had her roof done. She was ecstatic about the work and we knew that if she had decided on Rikcar Roofing, she had over done her searching. So, we called Jamey and not only did he do a fantastic job, but he put a tarp on our roof so we wouldn’t have to worry while he caught up with his other jobs. In the end, he came and did a fantastic job, even using a magnet to ensure there were no nails on the driveway to puncture a tire or two. So, with such wonderful and friendly service, it gives us a pleasure to highly recommend this man and his crew to anyone else. We are definitely paying it forward.

Howard and Marlene S

We are very happy with the job done by Jamey, and his crew. Jamey kept in touch with us right from the beginning. Returned phone calls - came to house when time was made - kept us updated on any delays. Crew was friendly and polite. They did a great clean-up job and had respect for our property. Jamey is truly a great business man, we would recommend him to anyone we know.

I was impressed, the company used all their safety equipment all the time. All employee's were personable and polite. The yard was cleaned up at the end of every day. A thorough explanation of all products used and cost was given before the job started. The roof was finished in a timely manner, and met all my expectations.

Rikcar Roofing did our roof a couple of years ago...they did an awesome job! A reliable company that stands behind their work - they did a courtesy follow up to ensure everything was to our satisfaction. Now that's Customer Service!

Janet M

St. Catharines, ON

I was most impressed by your safety concerns - the yellow tape and danger signs. Also, by the efficiency and pleasantness of your workers - the respect they had for my property and the neatness in which the work was carried out. My only complaint would be that my back gate was left open, but fortunately I checked before I let my dogs out.

James G

St. Catharines, ON

I am very pleased with everything about the new roof installed by your company, Rikcar Roofing & Siding. From the time you gave me a quote, to patching the spot that was causing the leak until you could do the job, all was done in a timely manner. Your crew were very efficient & left my property without a trace of the job done except for the evidence on the roof of a great improvement to my home. I thank you again for a job well done & would not hesitate to recommend your company to anyone.

Jamey put anew roof n my home in the spring of 2010. Before the project started, I had several meetings with Jamey. Since it is difficult to choose roofing shingles based on a sample, he provided me with a list of homes that I could visit, to view roofs that he had installed. Due to our discussions, and these viewings, I was able to make an excellent choice for my own roof. Jamey's communication skills are excellent. Due to an unusually wet spring, this project could have been an exercise in frustration, instead, due to great communications, I was always kept "in the loop". Because of wet weather, when a good roofing day came along, Jamey wisely called in other roofers to move the project along, and get the job done. Everyone in Jamey's employ was courteous, neat, and easy to work with. Following my new roof installation, we had some days with extremely high winds. I noticed that roofing shingles had come off many dwellings in my area. Jamey was right there to check my roof, and found it was perfect. His timely follow-up was greatly appreciated. Cost is also a concern for any home owner, and Jamey's estimates were right in line, and fair with no hidden charges. I recommended Jamey's company to two other friends, who were also delighted with his company's work. I highly recommend Rikcar Roofing and Siding because I believe that any job that Jamey signs up for will be a job well done.

Thank you so much for the great job you did on our roof and for all your patience with my "colour questions". We really appreciated how soon you worked us into your schedule so we didn't have to worry about our old roof leaking anymore. All your crew were polite and respectful and we enjoyed meeting them. We will definitely recommend you to any of our friends who are looking for a new roof.

Jamey came to my house and gave me an estimate. He also gave me a date to which he would start and be finished. True to his word every day, the site was protected an clean at the end of the day. Roof looks great and would refer him to anyone.

Rikcar Roofing and Siding were hired to replace our eaves, fascia and soffits. Jamey and his team are very professional. I was impressed that before the job began, Jamey brought out his team to introduce us. Shane and Rick undertook first class work and did not quit until everything we asked for was complete to our satisfaction. Both men conducted themselves in a very professional manner and were extremely reliable. We would highly Rikcar Roofing and Siding to anyone considering replacing their eaves, fascia and soffits.

Brian & Kellie K

I had my roof repaired by Rikcar a couple of years ago. Jamey was very honest and his prices were very fair and reasonable and the work was good and lasted. So when I had to have my roof replaced, this year (2016) Rikcar was the only company I considered. The workers are very pleasant, very careful about safety, and my yard is always clean and tidy when they leave for the night. I strongly recommend Rikcar Roofing.

Pam W

A big thanks to Jamey Doan and his crew from Rikcar roofing. They were very professional and never left a mess. I highly recommend them to anyone needing a new roof, Jamey sat down and discussed our options and during the job corrected mistakes made on the roof from when it was built 50 years ago.

Several weeks ago after a very rainy weekend I noticed water leaks coming my roof into the second story of my house. I called several local roofing companies to begin the process of obtaining quotes for the repair of such. I settled on Rikcar Roofing & Siding to perform the work for several reasons. First of all, Jamey Doan, the owner of the company arrived a my house on time and explained in detail what he saw needed to be done - he then gave me a written proposal of costs. Secondly, he explained the type of quality product he would utilize and to be aware of others contractors who might use inferior products. Thirdly, he was open and honest about the time element he would need to start and complete the work. Lastly, his price was not the cheapest, nor the most expensive, but after speaking to several other contractors, I had a good idea of what the actual cost was going to be and his estimate was very reasonable. I also spoke to a local neighbour who had work completed by Rikcar and he was extremely satisfied. We agreed upon a day / date / time to begin work, and I was very pleased when the company arrived as scheduled. Rikcar's work crew was polite, courteous and professional of all aspects of the roof repair, and cleanup of the premises, and completed the work in an expeditious manner. In closing, I was very pleased with the professionalism of Jamey and his crew and would recommend them for any roofing job.

The crew was very professional, Jamey is a great communicator, and showed me the progression as he went through the job. He was very helpful with regard to the questions I asked and offered useful suggestions as needed. I was very comfortable leaving them to continue with the work when I had to go out. They were very thorough and methodical in their cleaning and up-keeping the areas around the house free of debris. I would highly recommend this company, as I have to others

Diane D

Niagara Falls, ON

Jamey was referred to me by the previous own of my house; as he had done the roof nearly 20 years earlier. I found Jamey very friendly, personable and professional from our first meeting. He answered all my questions and concerns. He was even available for consultation, when I need to have my satellite dish moved. He kept me apprised of timeline, for when he would be able to start the work. When the work was underway, he kept me posted on  their progress and any issues that occurred. At the end of each work day Jamey and his team, made sure that the driveway, garden and backyard were clear of material. Since I have two dogs, I really appreciated not having to be concerned about their safety. I am very satisfied with the work that was completed on both my roof and chimney. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Jamey to any of my friends and family.

Dawn C.

St. Catharines, ON

With the myriad of roofers out there, I was thankful to get a referral from a friend for Jamey Doan and Rikcar Roofing.  Jamey’s presentation involved no pressure or “fine print” surprises.  Subsequently, I got two other quotes, and because Jamey’s presentation was so informative, I could ask intelligent questions that exposed the deficiencies of other providers. Rikcar Roofing uses Canadian-made products; they also reused flashing from my existing roof that didn't need replacement, and the company owner works alongside the crew  -- all evidence of Jamey’s responsible workmanship and effort to set himself apart from the fly-by-nighters to meet customers’ needs.  I was impressed that he checked my attic for proper ventilation and fastened a tarp over the trouble spot until he could schedule the job.  Excellent pricing, super-clean site, and follow-up visit rounded out the experience to make it as pain-free as replacing a roof could be!

Jane C.

St. Catharines, ON

Just a short note of thanks for the excellent job on our roof. Jaquelyn and I appreciated your honesty in assessing our problem, your advice on correcting and your professional courtesy throughout the project. We were also reassured we were getting the best possible job when it was done by yourself and only one other worker. I have already recommended your services to a neighbour.

Dalton C.

St. Catharines, ON

Thanks again for a job well done. I quickly became self assured that I gave the job to the right roofing company. I have no regret and would recommend Rikcar Roofing and Siding to anyone looking for a reliable hard working team providing high quality work. Thanks again.

Craig W.

Would like to thank you for your excellent work you and your crew did installing my new roof. I appreciate the time you took discussing details of your work and laying it out so there was no surprises. You left my house as clean as it was when you arrived. Thanks again for the quality work and effort.

George M.

In choosing a company we had specific quality demands on both material and workmanship not just price. It was also important that we could work with a crew that would do the job not just whoever was available that week. After going to many job sites we saw that Rikcar was consistent in their quality as well as a site management for cleanliness and safety. From attending to the details in the estimate, answering our many questions and concerns during the job we felt Jamey cared that the job be completed totally to our satisfaction. Thank you for a job went smoothly, safely and was completed in excellent fashion.

Would like to say a HUGE thank you to Rikcar Roofing for sponsoring the St.Mary's Majors CYO Hockey teams. For the past 3 years Rikcar Roofing has stepped up and sponsored our local hockey teams with kids ranging in age from 4-17. Without sponsors like you, we just wouldn't be able to fund all the great things we do for the kids. Once again it's people like you that make our community one. Our parents, volunteers and most importantly our kids thank you!!!! We look forward to working with you in the future years to come!!!
