Dear Tyler,

Thank you for the excellent job you did on my roof the summer of 2011. The workmanship is great and I have had a lot of compliments on the look of the roof. I have passed on your name to people who have said they need roof work as well. I saw your signs all around my neighbourhood and with the work you do it is not surprising. Keep up the great work and you will have continued success.

Re: Downing Roofing Tyler Downing

I have had the pleasure of knowing and dealing with Tyler Downing from Downing Roofing since November 2009.

He was referred to me by my contractor and asked to come and quote on a repair job for one of my properties in Barrie that required an 'emergency fix' back in November 2009. He attended to the problem immediately and fixed the issue.

In the Summer of 2010 Downing Roofing replaced the whole roof on that same building.

He work is excellent, his crew were courteous and they cleaned up the site at the end of each day. Tyler stayed in touch with me during the entire job and addressed any concerns I had.

Tyler takes pride in his work, and explains the process prior, during and after completion. We encountered some issues that were not visible during the quotation stage, which had to be dealt with, and he handled this in a very professional manner.

I have booked Tyler to come and attend to another property as soon as the snow melts in the spring.

I would have no hesitation recommending Downing Roofing for your next roofing job.

Please feel free to contact me should you require a verbal reference.

Dear Tyler,

Recently your company installed a new roof at my home in Bradford. I feel compelled to write this letter of appreciation as a result of the work done by yourself and your team. Your team exhibited a very high degree of professionalism and skill. You were helpful and informative to both me and my husband, and we both left the house in the morning on each day with a feeling of trust.

You were quickly available to us when my mother in law had a leak at her home, you took time out of your busy schedule to help her as soon as you could, and we are very appreciate of that.

The job at both homes were finished on time and not a scrap of evidence left behind. This was comforting as you took pride in your work and ensured that there was no debris left for our dog or children to get into. The cleanliness and professional demeanor of your employees indicates an attitude from the top that permeates throughout the company. For this I commend you.

Tyler, if there is ever a time you need a reference please feel free to call upon me. I would be honoured to speak to the quality of work, and the professionalism of you, your employees, and your company.

I have been happy with work that your company performed at my house and I am impressed with your service. I have already, and will continue to recommend Downing Roofing to friends and nieghbours.

I have been in business for myself for the last twenty three years. Over the last year I have gotten Tyler Downing / Downing Roofing LTD. to do two jobs for customers of mine. His level of professionalism and work ethic are above and beyond. He demonstrated a level of performance which seems to be lacking too frequently in services of this kind. Keep up the good work Tyler

Allan Mortier
I have known Tyler Downing for over ten years. Prior to starting his own business he worked in the roofing industry. He was a hard-working individual who had his mind made up at an early age that he would one day own and manage his own company. His years of experience in this field makes him one of the top roofers in the area.

Through his hard work and dedication Tyler not only learned his trade; he also realized the importance of excellent customer service. Anyone who hires Downing Roofing Ltd. not only benefits from the quality workmanship he brings to the job they can also rest easy that he stands behind his work and is committed to fair pricing and deadlines and he is always available to his clients.

As the worthy recipient of the 2009 Young Entrepreneur of the Year awarded by the Innisfil Chamber of Commerce, Downing Roofing continues to grow and strengthen its position in Simcoe County. I would not hesitate to recommend Downing Roofing for any work you may be considering.

Wanted to write to you and say FANTASTIC job you and your crew did!

Clean and organized to the last, and had the job done before we knew it.

You recommendations for style and colour of shingles were perfect. We have had compliments from everyone, and we will defiantly recommend you.

Tyler, I am writing to thank you for the spectacular job you and your crew did on shingling my house, from you recommending the color of the shingles which have the compliments pouring in from strangers to the way you guys completely covered the roof to make it water tight in minutes when a summer storm seemed to come out of nowhere!! I'm glad I chose your company, bravo Downing Roofing, fantastic work!!

sincerely, Steve Booth
Tyler and crew:

Thank you so much for the outstanding job you did on our roof.

We could not be happier with the quality of the workmanship and with the professionalism demonstrated by you and your employees.

We will highly recommend you to our friends and neighbours for the quality of your work, the fairness of your price and the great cleanup afterwards.

Fantastic job!

Thanks again,
Andrea Lummis and Scott Green (Innisfil)

Hi Tyler,

I just wanted to thank-you for the awesome experience that Darren & I received from you and your crew. I don't know if you are aware but we received several quotes from other local roofing companies, but we were just not satisfied with any of them. Running out of time as winter was approaching we had to make a decision, and then I heard your ad and I knew at that moment you were our guy. Tyler, from the moment I dialed your number we were never disappointed. It was so refreshing to meet you and realize that not only did you have our best interest at heart but your really enjoy your job and want to do the best job possible for your customers. Again, thank you so very much and we wish you the very best for the future, you deserve it, and you really do have old fashion values and work ethics.

Downing Roofing,

I just wanted to write and thank you for the fantastic job you did replacing the roof on our home.

After waiting three weeks for one of the big city roofing companies to get back to us , we wrote Downing Roofing and received a response the same day. The price we were quoted was excellent and the polite manner of the owner impressed us very much. The professionalism shown by the crew was first class and we could not be happier with the result.

Our new roof looks absolutely wonderful, and i would highly recommend this company to all my friends and neighbours.

Hello Tyler Downing of Downing Roofing,

I just wanted to comment on the work that you did on my house recently. I first wanted to thank you for an excellent job. You gave 110%, and got the work done quickly and professionally. The pricing was fair, and the work was exceptional, what more can one ask for. The roof looks great, and all of my worries, of leaks and problems are no longer. You came highly recommended, and you have demonstrated exactly why that is. Thank you for all of your hard work, and I will be sure to pass on your great reputation to others.

Take care,
Leigh Ryder
I was very pleased with the work that Tyler Downing did on the roof of my cottage. My neighbour had his roof done by Tyler, he recommended him, and I was glad he did because I got a good job done too. And he cleaned up when the job was finished.
