“A Third Generation Roofer with Over 34 years of Roofing and Roofing Only Experience.”


February 2011

To whom it may concern:

I have been involved in real estate development and investments for over 15 years. I was introduced to Ken Garmen, Owner of Legacy Roofing by a mutual friend, to whom I am grateful. I have known and used Ken for all my roofing needs for the last 12 years (and wish I had met him sooner). Over the years, Ken has been dependable, fair, exceptionally fast, clean and exceedingly professional.

For my new development projects, I always request bids from various roofing contractors. Legacy Roofing is consistently reasonable with competitive pricing. Better yet, Ken listens to my scheduling demands and puts forth his earnest effort to accommodate my needs. This never seizes to amaze me because someone so good is obviously in high demand and very busy. But, Ken always finds a way to fit my projects into his busy schedule. Ken always puts forth the extra effort to ensure my projects are done on time and on budget.

No job is too big or too small for Ken. Need new roofs for 30 new units in a subdivision? I call Ken. Need a roof overlay for one residential remodel project? I call Ken. Need a roof patch and repair for a leaky rental property situation? I call Ken. No matter the request, Ken has been reliable and trustworthy.

I am grateful to have Ken as part of my team. I strive to create a culture where all our sub-contractors work together to achieve a common goal. Ken and Legacy Roofing’s employees work well within our team oriented environment. From my honest perspective, any future potential client reading this reference who may be considering a roofing project would be a fool not to at least contact Legacy Roofing to request more information.

Please feel free to contact me for more information too. I’d be happy to share my experiences with Ken and Legacy Roofing.

Best of luck with you projects!

As a builder with over 20 years of experience, 15 of them working in Sonoma County, I’ve learned that selecting the best contractors my company works with is as important as maintaining the high quality work my own crew performs.

Legacy Roofing has provided me with the utmost work quality, Ken Garman having proved to be the easiest professional to work with and a straight up business man.

Even though Legacy Roofing was recommended by a friend who is a general contractor, I felt it would be wise to still get three bids since a new roof is a pretty substantial investment. The two other bids were from another local company and a home-improvement center. The other company’s bid was comparable to Legacy’s, except for the unknown cost of the permit, plus a $50 charge just to obtain the permit. The home-improvement center bid was literally twice as much and a waste of time.

The reason I chose Legacy Roofing was threefold: First, the friend’s recommendation; second, from the time of the initial bid to the actual commencement of work was 10 months, but Ken still honored the original price; and third, the proposal was straightforward, which was important because I knew exactly how much I had to spend for a new roof.

Ken and his crew were prompt, courteous, extremely diligent and professional. After the job was completed, except for a beautiful new roof, there were no remnants of an otherwise messy job having taken place at my home. When I wrote the check, I actually felt like I had gotten more than I paid for, which is unheard of in these ever-changing economic times. Without hesitation, I have and will continue to highly recommend Legacy Roofing to my friends, colleagues and neighbors.

Dear Ken,
I would like to thank you and your crew for the four new roofs which you completed for us in the past month as well as the repairs on roofs which did not need replacement. My property managers and I were extremely pleased with the quality of your work, your punctuality, your positive demeanor in relating to our tenants, and the fairness of your pricing.

Persons such as you are few and far between. Please know that you will be the first person we call with any roofing issues.
