we are proud to share their thoughts with you.
Fast, well installed roof! Time frame for work getting done was identical to quoted time and so was the price. Scott was amazing, no project is without minor hiccups and he went above and beyond what I would have expected to make us happy. Siding and metal wrap around windows looks great too. I'm glad they use the Certainteed architectural stuff, it looks awesome!!!

After a storm damaged our roof, Defrancesco’s was the only roofing company out of ten who even bothered to call us back. We needed a new standing seam metal roof and they did an excellent, careful job. Jay and the crew came when they said they would, were very respectful and helpful when we had questions, and did an outstanding job. We had a last minute request for a vent and they did it without a problem. Our new roof is beautiful!! My elderly mother in law fell during their time working here and Jay even helped me get her back up—definitely beyond the call of duty. We would recommend this company to anyone.

I chose to have my roof replaced based upon the completeness of their quotation and the fact that they didn't require any down payment. They were not the lowest priced nor were they the highest, they were very competitive with quality material. This told me that they have financial strength and are in good stead with their suppliers. They removed and replace my roof in one day and left my property cleaned up. This is a good company that works out of a office and show room where you can actually visit and see exactly what you are buying and who you are dealing with.

My wife and I recently purchased our first home a 1930s colonial in Manchester. We knew the roof needed to be replaced but opted to wait until after a full gut renovation to address the roof. 2x4 rafters with a 1x6 ridge sagging like crazy under the weight of five layers of shingles. That is 10,000lbs. everyone I’ve told that to can’t believe it hadn’t collapsed. I had the pleasure of working with Steve’s guys over the past couple years on an ongoing commercial project and new well their capabilities. Steve came by the house and climbed up and sat on the ridge and said simply we need to tear this all off and start over, I said I know can you believe there is five layers of shingles? He said the rafters the ridge, it’s all compromised. I felt ashamed I didn’t go after the roof first before putting so much into the renovations below. We descended the ladder and went into the discussion of cost, he ended up writing up an estimate right there. I entertained 3 other estimates all came in significantly higher by noticeably less confident contractors. The crew showed up bright and early and took the roof right down to the sorry rafters in one day. The next day they reframed the roof up over the old rafters using them as a working platform to install a new ridge beam and 2x10 rafters and all new sheathing. After spending night two under a tarp the third day the crew installed all new architectural shingles over premium ice and water shield and underlayment. Day 4 the gable ends were re sided and the metal trim work and soffit installed. Day 5 consisted of re sheathing and roofing two small lower roofs and reassembling a fence they needed to take down to make clean up more efficient. Thorough, efficient, professional, patient, and over achieving are some of the ways Id describe the crew. We were blown away by the transformation our little house underwent. Couldn’t be happier to have chosen Defrancesco as our contractor. We wish to extend our sincere and heartfelt thanks to Steve and foreman John for straightening out our little house and for sticking to your estimate despite all the curveballs. We highly recommend this company.

Chris R., Manchester
We are very pleased with the service provided on our roof, Stephen and his team were here on time and they are very efficient, clean and polite. The Big Test came this week with the torrential rain, so far all is well and no leaks. We have already recommended their services to friends.

Dennis & Coleen St Pierre
Was impressed at how fast they got back to me with a very professional quote. I especially liked the warranty and found it be much better than other roofing companies. The roofers arrived early and were very considerate and were good at communicating what their daily plans were. The outcome was very good, and the recommended color was perfect. I won't need to have a new roof ever again but if I did I would have Defrancesco do the job.

Sally Dion
Our new siding is beautiful! Excellent craftsmanship! And, Steve and his team were easy to work with.

Chris Karina
Terrific job! We were very pleased with the quality of the work, the products used, and the workmanship.

Steve Monier

I Sat down with the owner Stephen DeFrancesco and worked out a plan and price, he gave me a few products to look through. A few weeks later after a little research I sat down again with Stephen and finalized a re-roofing contract. Within a few weeks I got a call from Stephen asking if he could have a crew start on my house the following Monday. The materials showed up the Saturday before and the dumpster that morning. The crew removed my existing roofing and systematically laid down my new roof in about 11 hours(almost 4000 square ft). The crew did a very good job and cleaned up the sight completely. The next day my wife noticed some shadowing on my garage roof. I notified Stephen and he showed up with the roofing Rep. the next day. It was described to me as a bad batch or different batch of shingles. The following Saturday they stripped and re-roofed the garage. All work done was completed as described in the contract and the sight was kept clean at days end. I would rate the work at 4-1/2 stars but did not have that choice. I did have to have them come back for minor touch-ups.

We just had a compete reshingle on our roof. We had a great crew who worked non stop and were very conscientious about our entire property. The roof looks better than new. Defrancesco's made this an easy process from quote to finish.

S Maida

SNH quality roofing put a new roof on in one day. Great job. Everything was cleaned up before the workers left. The roof looks great and makes our almost 100 year old house look new.

Stephen Brown

We had a new roof installed last week. Steve was very knowledgeable, and clearly laid out our roofing options. His pricing was very reasonable for the job being done. Our roof was completed in 3 days, with an extremely polite and hardworking crew. They cleaned up after themselves at the end of every day. Steve came up a couple times to supervise and make sure the job was being done to his satisfaction. It was very clear that he wanted us to be completely satisfied with the end result, and we are. Our new roof looks beautiful. I would absolutely recommend DeFransesco's Southern NH Quality Roofing.

Mary Craigie

What a great company to work with!! From our initial call to Steve and his personal visit to review options for our roof, we knew we made the right call. The DeFrancesco Team was professional and met our rigid time frame for completion. Thank you and our roof is a beautiful reflection of your great company.

The O'Briens
Derry NH

We had a very large roof re-shingled by DeFrancesco Southern New Hampshire Quality Roofing & General Contracting. Every member of the crew was professional and courteous, as is the owner Stephen DeFrancesco.

Stephen took the time with us to go over the roofing options available and explained all about the materials that would be used in the job, and answered all our questions. We were very impressed with him and that the crew got this roof done in just one day! The results are just gorgeous!

Additionally, we added a side job onto the project by having a staircase rebuilt in our garden. It was falling apart and we worried that someone would get hurt on it. Now we have no-maintenance material and a great looking new staircase that is the showpiece of the garden.

Finally, we have to attest to the excellent job Stephen’s crew did on re-building a good sized back deck last year, again with no-maintenance material. Our back yard looks great because of Stephen and his crew.

We have used Stephen and his crew for 3 jobs and will certainly be back when we need more work done. We recommend him highly and without reservation!

I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for the excellent job your company did
on our roof. I must say I was impressed from the beginning.

You made it easy to select your organization by providing the most professional and comprehensive estimate package of any of the other four vendors we interviewed.
And by the way you were substantially cheaper.

Your crew followed up the estimate by performing everything you said they would do
in the most difficult conditions. I just couldn’t imagine anyone working on a roof in the summer heat of July 2010, but they did.

They were careful of our plants and the things on our deck, they cleaned everything
up, and the work was superb. On top of everything else they were a pleasure to have around. For the time they were here, I felt like I made new friends.

We called you based on a neighbor’s recommendation, and I must admit I thought he was exaggerating. Not so, you exceeded every one of my expectations. It is good to know that in this day of hurry up and make money there are still trustworthy people.

Thank you and special thanks to each member of your crew. Please let them know
how much I appreciated their work.

Mr. Stephen DeFrancesco
Southern New Hampshire Quality Roofing
and General Contracting

Dear Steve,

Thank you for a job well done and in record time. When Fred and I met with you we were very comfortable with the explanations you gave for the problems we were
dealing with and the solutions you suggested. We were confident in your knowledge
and were pleased with the way you presented yourself and your company. We had 6 estimates and your price was very fair and you were far more thorough than the
others. Most importantly you were the best informed and experienced.

In addition, your crew deserves the highest praise. They conducted themselves in a professional manner throughout the entire process. They worked in 90+ degree
weather and never wasted a minute. The roof looks very nice, the shingles are
uniform in position, there are no ripples or anything other than perfection. The work they did is exceptional. They cleaned up each day and that also was done thoroughly.
(I still can not believe they were here only 2 days considering that they had to strip
the sheathing.) Regarding the energy saving shingles, I can attest that they do make
a difference. With my old roof, as soon as you put your head into the attic on a hot day there was no air at all. You could not breathe. With this new roof I can go into the attic on a 90 degree day and stand up and you could remain there if you wanted to.

After the completion of the roof and how satisfied we were with the overall job I am happy that we had your company replace the 2 sections of siding that had been damaged for years. That was done so perfectly that you can not tell where the pieces had been replaced. Also, the door that you reframed looks like it was the original.

I have recommended your company to a few people and will be happy to continue. You deserve the business and those who choose your company will be happy they did. I can’t thank you enough. I hate winter, but at least this year I won’t have to worry
about it.

Please extend my thanks to your crew. You are very fortunate to have such excellent workers and genuinely nice people to represent you.

Gail and Fred Melen
Hi Steve,

I just wanted to thank you and your team for the excellent work you did on my new roof. The roof looks great and I've had a number of compliments from the neighbors on the quality of work and the appearance of the house with the new roof. I was
impressed by how quickly the roof was completed and the cost was very reasonable as well. Your team was still working well after 5pm when I came home from work and
they were all very personable and professional. Thanks again for the great job.

When my family needed to replace our old roof, we shared similar concerns as others who have gone through the process of finding a good and reliable contractor.

We worried if our final cost would overrun our roofing estimate, the length of time needed to complete our job, and what kind of people would actually be doing the work.
I am happy to say that our worries were completely unfounded.

The crew that removed our old roof and installed the new one was very professional, hardworking, well coordinated and extremely polite. From start to completion, our roof only took two days to install. They did a very thorough job cleaning up debris at the
end of each work day. They paid attention to details and did a comprehensive, high quality job installing a new roof and 6 new skylights, new soffits and resealing the
area around our chimney.

We were pleased that our cost estimate was so detailed and accurate. There were no surprises when we paid them at the completion of our job. We really appreciated the time they took to answer questions and explain the complete process beforehand.

We HIGHLY recommend DeFrancesco’s Southern NH Quality Roofing. (The Better Business Bureau of NH gives them an A+.)

I wanted to thank you and your crew for an absolutely great job on the roof of our 150 year old colonial in East Derry. You guys exceeded my expectations and am very fortunate to have contracted with such a professional company.

Our old roof was very worn, probably close to 25-30 years old, with many shingles
falling apart. It leaked from all the flashing points of the chimneys and had no proper ventilation. Along with the roofing shingles, we knew we needed to have the roof sheathed with plywood and all the lead flashing replaced.

We got quotes from five contractors, including one which did my barn roof about
seven years ago. Besides you, none made me confident in their quote. Many used subcontractors, some mentioned possible additional charges and two wanted a significant portion of their quote paid before they started. In this economy, I didn't
want to take any chances. I felt that the others had the possibility not being able to complete the job or have some issue that would cost me more upon completion. You
on the other hand had everything in order, including up to date copies of your liability and workman's compensation insurance policies. You took no short cuts in the
materials used in my job; top quality shingles, real plywood and galvanized nails.

After presenting your quote, you noticed that the cupolas on our barn were in bad
shape and you offered to replace them as part of the quote for no additional fee if I provided new ones. Would have been nice if the guys that did my barn years earlier noticed that they were not going to last, but they turned a blind eye until the job was done.

It took your crew of six to eight men over four full days, with the temperatures about
95 degrees, to complete the job. The quality is exceptional. The sheathing, protective layer, shingles and flashing were installed very well. When it became clear that a ridge vent would not be able to be used due to the post and beam framing of my home, you installed roof vents and a couple of power blowers at cost.

There were no surprises with you and your crew. They did a great job and cleaned up after every day.

I can't thank you enough for your professionalism and quality.

Derry, NH 03038

We want to take this time to thank you and the crew of DeFrancesco's So. NH Quality Roofing for the impeccable job they did on replacing our roof.

The time you spent on your first visit to our home to provide us with an estimate and
to explain in detail the work that would be completed was truly appreciated. We were given a great understanding of the services we would receive and the quality of
products that would be used.

The DeFrancesco roofing crew should be commended. They were always professional and extremely pleasant to deal with. At the end of each work day, we were amazed by the amount of work they had completed and how they left the area around our home completely free of any type of roof debris. Their attention to detail is incredible.

We also have to thank you for suggesting the Aged Redwood shingles. They add a beautiful touch to our home. We never realized how a different color roof shingle could make such a wonderful difference.

Once again, thank you to you and the Defrancesco crew for the superior work and professionalism we were given. All your efforts are greatly appreciated.

Sometimes you just gotta have faith! That’s a tried and true belief of Stephen DeFrancesco’s, of DeFrancesco’s SNH Quality Roofing and General Contracting. Stephen recalls the prayer that was answered 25 years ago. He thinks back on when he had lacked a high school education or set skills, and had started working construction. He asked…“God give me the ability to help people in the community and keep me close to my faith”. He remembers being at Dunkin’ Donuts and seeing an ad for “Roofers, No experience needed.”

Well, he thought….That’s one way to be closer to the “Man upstairs”. He started roofing and claims it came naturally. It was the kind of work that he was interested in learning more about & working hard gave him purpose. His boss took notice and he quickly moved from laborer, to shingle applicator. There was no stopping Stephen as he continued to improve. However, as time went on, he began to realize with each job his customers weren’t getting the best quality products. These companies weren’t doing work in the best interest of the homeowner. He felt God had given him a path, an opportunity, and he began to follow it. He started saving for his first truck and went from there. Many developers & great builders at that time helped mentor him and help him understand the industry. They saw his passion to work hard & were also inspired by that. He recalls fondly “I learned a lot throughout the years and went home to my family with my head held high because I felt like I was doing the right thing. I just knew that my faith had everything to do with my growing business”.

25 years later he owns a prosperous business that he only imagined he’d have one day. He has recently opened a Home Improvement Showroom at 6 East Broadway in Derry to highlight the great quality of materials used for indoor & outdoor improvements. He says… “Thanking & giving the glory to God, there has been some negative feedback, but lots of compliments as well”. Stephen also speaks of his appreciation for his wife Pamela, whose love and support has provided him a rock and helped him get to where he is today. She is currently managing the Showroom & learning a lot about the business. He is also appreciative of his Cousin & lead foreman of 20 years Scott DeFrancesco. He refers to Scott as his backbone and is always there for him working hard since day one. He is also very proud of his Team, which shows the same passion for working hard and has played a vital role in the company and building the business.

Being a Derry, N.H. native, Stephen is pleased to announce the company had their grand opening of their showroom at 6 East Broadway on March 1st of this year. He takes great pride in the honesty and integrity he puts into every job. With a phenomenal customer satisfaction rate, DeFrancesco’s SNH Quality Roofing and General Contracting offers Harvey building products, Drexel, and CertainTeed. It’s an honor for him to see the homes he’s worked on and how he’s helped the same community he knew as a child. His estimates are free of charge & prices are competitive, but the quality is always first. His business is an A+ standing with the BBB & has been voted “the BEST of the best” roofing company for the last 6 years!! Stop in at the showroom at 6 E. Broadway Derry, N.H. & say “Hi”, have a look around, a coffee, & just see what we’re about. Our sincere Thanks to you all.
