Fichtner Services recently completed a project for a homeowner in Crofton who is retired US Navy. He selected GAF Timberline HD Shingles in Pewter Gray. The project included removal of existing shingles and underlayment and installation of a new, complete GAF architectural shingle roof system.

“Outstanding experience all around. Fichtner Services was responsive to the original bid request and all additional information exchanges. Crew was on time and extremely efficient. Management team was thoroughly professional–from sales rep to project supervisor to office staff manning the phones.

Impressive choreography…no other way to describe it. While a portion of the roof deck was exposed after removal of old shingles, pulled up a panel to insert hose (and person) for blown-in insulation to increase depth of fiberglass in the attic…all while additional striping of old shingles continued elsewhere on the roof. Timed the arrival of new roofing material (delivered by flatbed with crane) to match availability of the work area. Ensured deck was water tight (moisture barrier and most of the shingles) in place at the end of day 1; returned to finish the job on day 2 in a handful of hours. Conducted thorough clean up and timely repair of two window screens damaged in the roofing process.

Encountered a problem accessing the chimney fascia (positioning/height of chimney and odd design angles) and worked with me to remove some ladder approach hazards and brought a crew in separately to complete the job.” – Paul J., Crofton, Maryland

Annapolis roofing contractor, Fichtner Services has been working with the Wildewood community in California, Maryland. Wildewood is located in St. Mary’s county and is a neighborhood that is home for many military families. Fichtner Services created a unique program for residents in this neighborhood, extending multi-roof discounts for neighbors who sign up to have their roofs replaced together.

The roofs being replaced in Wildewood range in age from 19 to 22 years. Replacement roofs offer homeowners assurance that their home is well protected from weather and other elements. A new roof can make a dramatic improvement in the look of a house, giving it an instant “face lift”.

In addition to the multi-roof discount program from Fichtner Services, many Wildewood customers are eligible for a $300 rebate from GAF, North America’s largest manufacturer of shingles. Roofs For Troops is a rebate program created by GAF to say “Thank You” for the sacrifice and service of our active and retired military men and women.

All of this adds up to BIG savings for our customers in Wildewood! If your neighborhood has homes in need of roof replacement, contact us to find out if we can create a multiple replacement program for you!
