“I had a very positive experience with the company. They really bailed me out of a problem back in December by responding quickly and doing a great repair job. I have a difficult Spanish tile roof. The owner, Michael was the only one who gave me a job quote. He personally came by multiple times to check on the work his crew was doing. Everyone I dealt with from O’Lyn was extremely professional. I would absolutely recommend O’Lyn, and wouldn’t hesitate to use them again.”

“O’Lyn’s did a wonderful job replacing the roof on my garage. The service was timely, and the staff was professional in every way. I especially appreciated the hard work of the two men who did the labor. I have one small complaint that doesn’t affect the star rating: there should have been better coordination between the sales executive who came out and took the order and said any of the roofing options online were available, and the project manager who arrived the day of the work to tell me very few options were actually available. Supply chain issues have affected the roofing industry just as they have all industries. So instead of getting the dark brown roof I wanted, I ended up with slate grey. It’s not a major issue but it’s a disappointment that didn’t need to happen. It would be nice if the sales executive had samples of all the available options in his (or her) van, so the client does not need to choose based on online samples, which never fully match the real-life roofing material. The owner is incredibly invested in running a top-quality company. He called to understand better what happened on my project. If all business owners were as concerned about running a tight ship as Mr. Olen, America would be consumer heaven! You will be in good hands at O’Lyn Roofing.”
