Here's what a recent customer had to say:
Take comfort in the Kanga Roof promise of quality, safety and understanding.
"I'd never had my roof replaced so when I noticed it started leaking I was a bit apprehensive - didn't quite know what to do, who to trust, how the process was going to work, etc.
I called Kanga Roof and they helped solve all my problems. A technician came out to my home, examined the roof, and patiently answered a zillion of my questions.
They started the project and before I knew it, they were done.
Now I have a new roof, and I'm very happy with the results (and the price I paid). Thanks Kanga Roof, you really did Hop To It!"
