Comments: I had a person out here previously and it was 10 times more than what Kelbie quoted me!! He also did a few other things for me that I didn't even ask. I will definitely be using him again.

Comments: Edward was very responsive and fast at getting the repair done. He came back to patch the roof the day after the estimate, took pictures of the repair and promised a one year warranty which gave me the peace of mind. Would highly recommend!

Comments: We had 3 items that needed to be addressed: (1) a roof leak, (2) a window leak, and (3) caulking of a roof soffit. Another contractor came by and quoted us ~$1800 for the repairs, which included taking up a lot of shingles on the roof and popping the siding off the side of the house where the window was leaking. We contacted Ed by phone and he came by 30 minutes later. He quickly assessed that the roof leak was coming from the fireplace vent pipe where the wrong grout had been used to seal a joint (NOT the roof itself!) . For the window, he noticed some cracks in the wood joints near the corner of the house where water could be coming in and getting behind the siding. For $500, Ed caulked everything (including some nail pops and other cracks he noticed on the roof). Total elapsed time from our first call: 2 1/2 hours. AMAZING CUSTOMER SERVICE!!! HONEST PRICING!!! We'll definitely be calling Ed again when it's time for other home repairs!

Comments: great explanation of the repair process!

Review Date: 03/05/2016 | Author: Jerry D.

Comments: My opinion Ed is one of the good guys in the roofing business. He inspected the roof, identified the problem, presented a plan of action and a price to fix the problem. He was able to fix the problem immediately. Since we haven't had a good hard rain not sure if the whole leak has been fixed. Keeping my fingers crossed.

Review Date: 11/13/2015 | Author: Stan K.

Comments: I was very impressed with the work that Mr. Kelbie did for me. I hired him for 2 projects-(1) scraping and painting trim around windows and porch roof trim and (2) rebuilding and shingling porch roof.. He did an excellent job on both. He was very quick to return my call(s), honest about what needed to be done and the cost of each project, very thorough in his work, and used high quality materials that will last for a long, long time. He was also very courteous, listens to your questions and concerns, and answered with the patience and expertise of a true professional. I would definitely hire him again for future projects.

Comments: This contractor has great communication and is very responsive. They can get the job done. I think it was a little expensive, but I'm not that familiar with the cost of roof repair.

Comments: Ed was prompt when returning my phone call, gave an estimate the next day, scheduled the work for that week and delivered. He gave me options and helped educate me on the project. Hard to tell about the quality of the work right now, but I feel confident.

Review Date: 06/20/2014 | Author: Cheri B.

Comments: I had an excellent experience with Ed Kelbie and his team. They painted the exterior of my house. They arrived on time, paid attention to details and cleaned up after themselves. They even did additonal work I requested that was outside of the original scope of work. My house looks 100% better than before.

Review Date: 06/07/2014 | Author: Pamela B.

Comments: Excellent work and customer services.

Review Date: 06/02/2014 | Author: Tehran G.

Comments: I had a great experience with Mr. Kelbie so far, the only reason I say so far and I gave him 4.5 stars was because it hasn't rained hard yet, so its hard to judge the quality of work and if it does still leak what his response would be. But based on his timelyness, professionalism, price, and honesty, I would say Mr. Kelbie was well worth it. He could of came out and said I needed a brand new roof, but instead, he took a good look at it and gave me more options. If and when I need my roof replaced, please be sure it will be Mr. Kelbie

Review Date: 05/01/2014 | Author: Jie Y.

Comments: Edward and his crew arrived on time, power washed the cedar siding days before the staining, and did a thorough job restraining the house. Not only were they efficient, but also meticulous about the details. They made my house a dream home to come home to everyday. Thank you very much!

Comments: After submitting a form on the HomeAdvisor website, Edward contacted us immediately. He came to our house the next day to check out the scope of work and give us an estimate on the job. He came back within a week and completed our exterior paint job in a day. The entire experience was very easy, and stress free! The price was very reasonable, as well. We would definitely recommend Edward to our family, friends, and neighbors. In addition, we would have him back to work on future projects on our home.

Review Date: 03/14/2013 | Author: Craig W.

Comments: while presented with the decision to have leaking flat rooft repaired or replaced Ed Kelbie answered my contractor request within 15 minutes upon submission. He was evaluating the roof the very next day and two days later the roof was repaired based upon Mr. Kelbie assessment. He indicated that the the roof would eventually have to be replaced, but a repair would be sufficient for a few years. I would highly recommend Ed.

Review Date: 03/11/2013 | Author: Cheryl S.

Comments: Got an initial call within 15 minutes of Home Advisor request. He was out to property within 24 hours and gave me an immediate quote. Keep in contact every stage of the process. The quote was very reasonable. Gutter repair was made. He provided a before and after picture as well as receipt for work. I have encountered many contractors before but this company is one having customer service, reasonable pricing, and provides timely quality repair. You can definitely use this company either on rental home or your own home. How refreshing!!!!

Comments: I am completely satisfied with the appearance of my fence. I think Mr. Kelbie is an excellent contractor, and he is very nice also. I recommend him highly.

Review Date: 07/06/2012 | Author: Alex F.

Comments: Our experience with Ed Kelbie was fantastic from start to finish! He did everything he said he would exactly on time and the results were top notch. The most important criteria to us when choosing someone to work on our home is reliability and Ed was flawless in that department. His men were tireless workers who produced an outstanding finished product. Our only regret is that we don't have any other houses for them to paint!

Review Date: 06/26/2012 | Author: James J.

Comments: I was very pleased with Ed throughout the entire process from estimate to completion of work. He is a professional that completes everything he promises.

Review Date: 05/21/2012 | Author: Kinna C.

Comments: I'm thoroughly pleased with the job Ed and his guys completed for us. They were here when we expected, the house looks great, and all I had to do was write a check. They even picked up the old chips of paint that had fallen into the grass. A little more than others, I'm sure, but worth the money.

Review Date: 05/18/2012 | Author: a Neighbor

Comments: Ed and his crew were excellent. They were courteous and quick. The quality of work was very good and a great value. I had another quote that was double Ed's quote and it didn't even include all that Ed was going to do for us additionally.

Review Date: 05/10/2012 | Author: Debra M.

Comments: Outstanding paint job!!! Considering the house is about 50 years old, the paint job to all the wood and porch make it look wonderful. I'm looking forward to calling again on my next painting project.

Review Date: 04/06/2012 | Author: Maureen J.

Comments: Ed Kelbie and his crew did a tremendous job. Not the cheapest but worth the quality of work, came on time, completed job on time, did more than was contracted for. Will definitely use him again and highly recommend him to others.

Review Date: 02/28/2012 | Author: William B.

Comments: Edward Kelble is outstanding. He took pictures of my job; explained the problem and solution and performed the work when he said he would at a very reasonable price. Best contractor I have worked with to date. I highly recommend him.

Review Date: 01/17/2012 | Author: Earl E.

Comments: Ed of Edward Kelbie provided excellent customer service and quality work. He offered two options for the repair of my roof depending on my budget. One was a short term fix and the other a complete correction of problem. After calling several roofers and being told it would be 3-days to 1-week before someone could come see the roof to provide a repair estimate or from my description of the problem the repair was too small for them. I was greatly relieved to find a company that could response quickly between there scheduled repairs.

Review Date: 01/13/2012 | Author: Dionne E.

Comments: Mr. Kelbie was very professional, he was timely and the work was completed on the day that I scheduled it. Im not sure about prices, because the other companies never came out for an estimate.

Review Date: 01/08/2012 | Author: a Neighbor

Comments: Ed contacted me via phone same day I started the search. Ed arrived at the house on time. He solved the problem quickly and the cost of repair was fair. Other gutter repair companies had a price minimum, Ed's cost was based on the actual work/time.

Review Date: 01/05/2012 | Author: a Neighbor

Comments: He was very accommodating.

Review Date: 12/29/2011 | Author: Stacey T.

Comments: Very fast response, awesome and professional service! Temp patched my roof with rain pouring down giving us an immediate peace of mind as this huge storm entered the area. He also gave me an excellent price on a permanent repair which we are scheduling now. Certainly will use again for one or more of the several services offered.

Review Date: 12/19/2011 | Author: Barbara S.

Comments: Wonderful service! Was the only contractor that returned my call quickly (within a few minutes) and the only one that came the next day. We are still receiving quotes from other companies when the project has been completed. We already plan on using him again for our roof replacement when it comes time.

Review Date: 11/30/2011 | Author: Sabrina R.

Comments: Mr. Kelbie, Visited my property very soon after I after submitted my ServiceMajic request, evaluated the problem with water coming into the attic from the roof, provided me with an estimate then fixed the problem in a very timely manner. My roof is no longer leaking into the attic.

Review Date: 11/28/2011 | Author: Darlene H.

Comments: Mr Kelbie was prompt and clean. He kept his word and handled the job. Before I knew it he was done. He sent me before, during and after photos so I'd know everything that was going on. I did find his quote a little on the high side but I'm glad I got what I paid for and more. Thank you ED! Darlene Hairston

Comments: We have had leaky roof for almost 20 years. (many attempts have been made to fix the leak) The water comes in around my chimney. We contracted with Edward Kelbie to fix the problem. He provided me with an estimate of $700.00 to fix the roof. He came out, found a leak and fix it. He only charged me $500.00, stating this was not a $700.00 job. A few days later we had heavy rains and the roof still leaked. I called Mr. Kelbie, he returned, conducted some additional test and found another leak, he He spent about two to three hours looking for the leak. He returned a day or two later with his crew and fixed the leak, at no additioanl charge

Review Date: 09/23/2011 | Author: Jacqueline W.

Comments: Mr. Kelbie contacted me on 9/9 based on a request I entered at the Service Magic site for repair of a roof leak. When he arrived at my home he was very courteous and listened carefully as I explained the problem. He checked out the attic and then got up on the roof itself to assess the damage. He took pictures with a cellphone and showed me specific findings along with quoting me an estimate which I found reasonable. He made the repaifs on 9/10. Today 9/23 was the first day of heavy rain since the repair. I walked through the home to visually assess and also physically touched the previous trouble spots and every place is dry!

Review Date: 09/16/2011 | Author: Donna F.

Comments: Ed showed up very promptly; he was very professional; he assessed the problem of another contractor's work that was done poorly, and he corrected it. It rained yesterday and so far, no water was running down on the front of my house; it appears he has fixed it; I also asked Ed to correct the rusting on the top of my chimney and he painted it with a rust proof coating. His price was reasonable and the quality of work was good. I would recomment Ed to my everyone and I will surely use him again in the future.

Review Date: 09/14/2011 | Author: Hiller C.

Comments: Edward Kelbie explained what he was going to do. In a very timely manner he came and power washed and painted the trim of the house. Did more then he was expected to do.

Review Date: 08/07/2011 | Author: Patrick M.

Comments: Easy to work with. Ed is very focused on making sure you are satisfied. The paint they used on my house was of good quality and his team did an outstanding job of preping before they jumped into painting the house. Ed is on my list to use his painting service again when the time comes to paint the exterior of my home.

Review Date: 08/04/2011 | Author: Lauren D.

Comments: Mr. Kelbie and his team were professional and competent. He was flexible around my schedule. The team worked effectively and efficiently and did a FABULOUS job!

Mr. Kelbie is honest about what needs done and makes sure you are satisfied before he leaves. Thank you for the great work.

Review Date: 08/02/2011 | Author: Catherine C.

Comments: They weren't the cheapest painters we had gotten an estimate from (but they we still very reasonably priced) but Ed was very professional and he was the only painting contractor who agreed to replace some rotting wood. Hiis painters did a fantastic job scraping and painting the exterior of our house.

Review Date: 07/07/2011 | Author: D K.

Comments: Ed did called the day I submitted the request online, followed up via email and came out that same day to complete an estimate. He finished in a day, sent me pictures via email and explained to us exactly what he had done. I wouldn't choose anyone else and now have is info saved in my contacts for those times in the future when I may need to give a roofer a call.

Review Date: 05/02/2011 | Author: David W.

Comments: Edward Kelbie returned my call within a short period of time and was able to do the job on the same day. His price was very reasonable and he did a good job on accessing the problem and providing a solution to fix the problem. He also cleaned up the work area after the job was completed. Based on his professionalism I plan to hire him to do another job.

Review Date: 04/18/2011 | Author: Carolyn S.

Comments: Ed was great! He even found some other problems and fixed them as well. He was the first to call and come out and I hired him to fix my roof and attic vent, also my chimney. All my problems have been fixed and I couldn't be happier. I did pay a little more than I wanted but he did find other issues and fixed them and I'm glad he did. He was always on time and would call if he would be late. Cleaned up after himself. I will hire him again if I need him.

Review Date: 03/26/2011 | Author: Mary D.

Review Date: 01/25/2010 | Author: a Neighbor

Comments: He is quick, was here on time, took a 30 minute lunch and worked the rest of the day. Did all in the day and half. They are both very young, just really hard workers. I need the awnings done, he knotted on the door talking about his work, I decided to try him. He takes pride in his work, like it is his own house. There was an awning on the side of the house, he just painting it. It was the extra things he did, just did a great job.
