testimonials
Our company uses Mint Roofing (Formerly Dalbec) exclusively for all of our roof leak repair work for our comprehensive service customers. Their response and success rate on repairs is excellent and vital for our customer sites. Picture detail provided on repairs has been an essential tool for customer communication. I recommend their preventive maintenance plans to any owner/manager to extend the lifespan and prevent costly repairs and tenant disruption issues. The staff at Mint is responsive and they really care about great customer service. - Ed, Maintenance &Mechanical Contractor
I have been a very satisfied customer of Mint Roofing, the former Dalbec Roofing, for over 20 years. From the moment I contact the Service Coordinators, I know my service request is being immediately processed, with a follow-up call or e-mail of when I can expect to have someone on the job site. That follow-up is very important to me. Tim Comer has been a valuable asset to me, for his professional expertise, and advice on how best to solve the problem cost effectively. The service tech’s on the job are very thorough and leave the job site on a timely basis. While the name is changing to MINT Roofing, the staff is why I use their services.- Larry, Facility Manager
Mint Roofing – that is exactly what they are: “MINT”! Mint’s customer service is out of this world – they look out for their customer whether they are large or small, they are very responsive to your needs and bring the newest industry developments to your attention. The service techs are far superior to other companies that I have worked with. Their online system allows you to see current and past inspection reports, repair services that have been done which includes pictures of before and after along with the preventative maintenance report, which is fantastic for me since there are no more papers to keep. When asked who I would recommend, I tell them to call Mint. - Cindy, Facilities Director
Mint Roofing makes my life as a property manager so much easier. The annual inspections are done promptly every year and the reports provided to us are extremely well done and very informative. We are able to work with Mint Roofing to work around our budgets to do the work that needs to be done right away and plan for what needs to be done in the future. Service Calls are responded to at unbelievable speed and everyone that I deal with is so professional and pleasant to work with. We get comments from tenants about how professional the roofers are when they are on site at our buildings. We use Mint Roofing on our entire portfolio and would not think of changing. They seem more like a partner in business than a vendor. - Terri, Property Management Company
