I'm glad I found KTM
It was time for a new roof so I decided to investigate the product manufactured by the Tapco Group. Their Inspire Synthetic Slate line was interesting so I contacted the Tapco rep here in Atlanta as to the availability and to obtain a list of companies that installed it. The Inspire line is a composite roof material made to look like slate but is a lot lighter than real slate.
The rep gave me the names of two companies in the Atlanta area that had experience with the product and had a good reputation for quality installations. KTM was one of the companies he recommended.
When the KTM rep showed up he was extremely familiar with the Inspire shingle and said his crews were qualified to put the roof down. We ended up agreeing on the composite shingle, ridge vents, an ice & rain underlay, three new (replacement) Velux skylights and a standing seam metal roof on one portion of our garage that has a low sloped roof.
I was pleased with the price, workmanship and the crew. The crew chief, Edwin, was an indispensable part of the team. He kept me advised of the work being done during each phase.
I was impressed with the work done last summer (2011) and have not had the first hint of a problem. Iím just sorry I didnít find out that KTM also installed gutters and gutter covers until the KTM rep arrived and I had already had had that work done. I now have a 50-year roof with 50-year flashing.
I will not hesitate to recommend KTM to neighbors.
