Good contractor for roof repair?

roof line of a house with chimneyAnonymous says:

It looks like there's a leak in our home's roof, probably around where the vent for the plumbing sticks out of the roof. I have a feeling it's not a big or complicated repair, but I'm also not so confident about climbing out on the roof myself to fix it. So I was hoping people might have suggestions for good contractors for roof repair.

We looked through past questions and we've had one about slate roofers, and one about fixing the flat rubber roof on a historic home. But -- somewhat to our surprise -- it doesn't look like we've ever had a question about finding a roofing contractor for a "regular" shingle roof.

So, got a suggestion for Anonymous? Please share! And, as always, bonus points for sentence or two about why you're suggesting that company.

After trying to work with several independent roofers, we are now working exclusively with Star Roofing. They might be a little more expensive and it might take a while to get an appointment, but we've found that it is worth it because they are highly skilled, courteous, and very responsive.

We used Shear Roofing to do a whole roof job in Nisky. They were great. We also used Harpis Roofing on a property in Hudson, they too were fantastic, and that was a huge job in terms of complexity.

I use United Building and Remodeling. Rich Regels is the owner. Prices are reasonable and he and his team fixed a chronic problem in my slate roof that Star Roofing took 4 service calls to NOT fix. However, it does take quite awhile to get an appointment.

Really recommend Alex at Home Evolution. Shortly after I bought my house I had a few roofers come out and just to check out what the situation was up there. Knew no leaks by condition of attic etc, but also that the roof was def not new. He was the only honest one in the bunch! Everyone else was trying to sell me a new roof that day and he told me I had another 5 years. When it comes time to do our roof he will be my first call!

He is excellent and honest!
