I've had Richard Griego work on me roof two times. The first time, I was having no luck getting a roofer to come over to fix the tiles blown off by the winds. I don't know if the other roofers thought the job was too small?
When I called Richard Griego at Federal Building Roofing, he came over when he said he would. I worked long hours, so he scheduled his inspection around my work hours.
He emailed me pictures of the damage caused by the wind, along with an estimate for the work. I contacted him and got my roof fixed before the rains arrived.
Recently I had a leak in my garage. I called Federal Building Roofing again, Richard arrived when he said he would. The next day, he emailed me pictures of the slipped tiles, along with a very reasonable estimate for the work needed. He did a great job within a few days.

Overall

Richard at Federal Building Roofing was recommended by us to the real estate agent who helped us buy our house. We needed an entire re-roof. The old roof was one layer of asphalt shingles over the original wood shake, which meant they had to tear everything off and start with new sheeting.



We were very happy with the work that they did. Their quote was very reasonable and a few little add-ons we requested were done just at the cost of the parts itself. They cleaned up their mess at the end of each day which meant we didn't feel trapped in our house for the week. Any time I called Richard with a question or issue he responded quickly. They took care of all aspects, buying all the supplies they needed, setting up the inspections, etc. I will happily recommend Federal Building Roofing to any of my friends who need a roof job done.

Overall

My first experience with Federal Building & Roofing Inc. was when they were referred to me by the manufacture of a solar vent I bought at Costco. Once they arrived, I was greeted by the owner Richard, and his helper. He inspected the location where I wanted it installed, which happened to be where I had an existing vent. I didn’t want to add another hole in the roof but doing so required Richard to purchase shingles to match my existing one because the old vent was under multiple layers of roof. The additional cost was reasonable.



Richard and his worker were both in the attic and roof installing the solar vent. He made sure everything was working properly and explain the monitor it came with. Before he left, I ask for a quote to reroof my sister’s garage and storage area behind it. He followed me there and gave me a quote I felt was so reasonable, I agreed to the price. Within 2 weeks his crew was at my sister’s house, once to meet the company delivering the shingles on the roof and again the next morning to install it. Not only was I impressed with their speed but the quality at well. They finished within 3-4 hours and were gone by noon. I had agreed to a new layer of roofing and underlayment, which they did a fine job with but they also added a new drip edge to match the color of the roof. His crew also did a nice job of cleaning up before they left.



Richard came by about noon to check out and walk the roof. He wanted to make sure I was happy with the job before getting paid.



I will definitely call him for a quote when I need to have my home redone.

Highly recommended. Very professional. Gave a very clear assessment of the roof's condition. Richard's estimate of the age of the roof matched the city records when we pulled them. Only recommended what was needed to be done. Did not try to up-sell any work. Pulled permits and executed the work on time and on budget. Their cost is very reasonable. They answered all questions and concerns. I would highly recommend them for your roofing needs.

Federal Building & Roofing repaired our roof due to beehives damage in a prompt and timely manner. Richard was very faithful to show up on time on estimate appointment and scheduled repair day. I worried about the rain was coming and they applied the service fast to ease my worry. They gave me 5 photos for work details and provide 3 years warranty. I will definitely consider Federal Building & Roofing when my roof needs another jobs.

Richard was recommended from a close friend who has flipped a lot of houses and used his company before. I feel that I got a great roofing job at a fair price, and he didn't try to add on any extra ripoffs or pull any scams.It took four days to complete the job, and everything was completed to my satisfaction.



He was quick to respond to my request for a quote, and discussed all aspects of the job thoroughly, and messages were promptly returned. His crew started and ended the job at the agreed upon dates, and he had a big crew of company workers, not just laborers hired from a parking lot.



His workers were polite and friendly, they definitely knew roofing, and I didn't mind having them on my property. I appreciated that his crew left the worksite clean on a daily basis (we have little kids), and they swept the yard for nails before they left.



I have no regrets having this work done on my house, it looks great, and he even took care of all the permit hassle. My roofline is a little tricky and they took the effort to make it look right. I would highly recommend them.

I decided after living in my home for many years, and the recent windstorm in the Southern CA valleys, that my roof finally needed a makeover. I obtained 4 estimates, and was told by all of them that I needed the plywood base for the roof, as I guess roofs on older homes weren't necessarily built with them. Federal Building & Roofing actually came in with the lowest bid, so I decided to go with them, as I saw they had good ratings here.



The team started promptly on the scheduled start date and got a lot of work done the first day, tearing off and hauling away the old roof and clearing out the debris. Richard left me samples of the Timerline Natural Shadow shingles on the first day, and I had up until the afternoon of the 2nd day to decide on a color. The 2nd day was the sheeting inspection from the city, so not much happened that day. On the 3rd day, most of the shingling, the 2 dormer vents, and 2 attics fans were installed, with only 1 side of the house remaining. On the 4th day, the remainder of the roof was completed. And I write this on the 5th day, when the final inspection is to occur.



Richard Griego is the person who gave me the estimate, and he's also the person who I have contact with on any questions and progress on the job. He's very professional and extremely responsive. We exchange emails and phone calls daily. I had complete confidence that he would get the job done in a timely and high quality fashion.



The shingles he installed were the Timberline Natural Shadow 30-year life in Barkwood. I love the color! I am glad I went with this color as the darker contrast is nice against the cream color stucco of our house. The pictures in the brochures do not do it justice.

Federal Building & Roofing, Inc. - Fair pricing, Fast and Efficient Service





Richard knows the roofing business and does what he promises. He gave me an estimate and proposal within 24 hrs and started on the day agreed upon. He supervises his workers and made sure they cleaned up each day of the project. His crew is experienced and does not take short cuts. I was impressed with my new roof and would definitely use Federal for all my roofing needs

I was referred to Richard for my whole house fan by a colleague. His communication was great. He came out and did the estimate right away. I didn't feel like I was being pressured into buying something I didn't need. He was very honest about the pros & cons of any more expensive units or add-ons. I really felt like we got the right unit for our needs, without being bullied into spending any extra money for something I didn't need. The installation was quick and painless. The guys showed up on time, worked quickly with minimal disruption, and cleaned up nicely after themselves. As for the fan itself, I LOVE it!! In late spring, when it's hot during the day, we turn the fan on the minute the sun sets and the house gets cool so quickly. I have referred Federal Building & Roofing to many other people. I couldn't be happier.

I am extremely pleased with the service provided by Federal Building Roofing, Inc.



To begin, Richard took the time to thoroughly explain the service that he would be providing. He wanted to show me the damage on the roof and ensured that I understood the process.



About six months after the job was completed, I had a small leak. After calling him he immediately came by the house, located the source of the leak and fixed the problem. He asked that I call him with an update after the next rain storm to make sure that the problem was solved.



Not only am I satisfied with Richard Griego and his company, but I would absolutely recommend Federal Building Roofing Inc to a friend.

I requested quotes from several roofing companies for repairs to my leaking roof. Federal Building and Roofing (FBR) provided the most comprehensive quote which included photos which were overlaid with drawings/descriptions of exactly what/where the repairs were to be conducted. For myself who has limited knowledge of roofs and roofing repairs, this gave me a better idea of exactly what was going to be done.



Repairs were done in a timely and professional manner. Although some additional follow up work was required to completely fix the leak, this was also done in a timely manner and with no fuss. FBR also provided photos of the repairs upon completion which was also nice to have for my own records.



We have had no further issues with our roof. I recommend FBR for roof repairs.

Recently, after getting quotes from several contractors, I chose Federal Building and Roofing to replace my roof and install three skylights. Richard Griego oversaw the work and was very courteous. His crew was punctual, friendly, kept the area around the house clean, and did excellent work. The skylights turned out very nice and we have had no leaks around them. Overall they did an excellent job, and I would recommend them without reservation!

As a Realtor, it is hard to find quality vendors that take pride in their work and do it in a timely manner. Federal Building & Roofing is that company! They have always been on time, they are thorough with giving the estimate and I find them to be honest and trustworthy. I would definitely recommend them to my friends and family. Thank you!

During the summer heat, the temperatures in my home would get over 93 degrees, so I looked into installing solar attic fans. I wanted to make sure a roofer handled the installation. I found a few local roofing companies, including Federal Building and Roofing's information on different online review sites, and checked them all out at the BBB site. After looking at the ratings for the different companies, I called 3 highly rated roofing companies, and got quotes for the installation of 2 solar attic fans. At Federal Building &Roofing and I spoke with Richard Griego directly,and discussed the installation of the 2 solar attic fans. He quoted a price on the phone for installation( half of what one company was going to charge, and competitive with another company) and we set up a time for installation. He was prompt and during the consultation process, we discovered some issues with the construction of the roof. During the consultation, I observed that Richard was very thorough, and we discussed the fix for the issues he discovered. We then set up another time for the fix and installation. Everything went smoothly, and I am very happy with the decision for the roofing job. The home is much cooler, and I rarely used the AC, in LA! Overall, excellent job. Would definitely recommend ( and have done so already)

The Federal Building & Roofing Company was very responsive in getting me a quote on our home that was purchased in July 2011. Richard Griego was the person in charge in writing a proposal for our tiled roof home that needed some minor repairs around the chimney and some replacement of broken tiles around the entire roof. An appointment was made to take care of the job in a timely matter. A warranty was written for the job done. This roofing company was recommended by our REALTER at the time of the home inspection. I highly recommend using this company for your roofing needs.
