Huber Home Improvement
Purchased a home in Oct 2011 that had its roof replaced by Huber Home Improvement in late 2003/early 2004. Seller's disclosure indicated they had roof problems that had been repaired a few times by Specialty Roofing, but didn't indicate why they didn't resolve with Huber instead. Now I know! After a hard, wet spring I developed leaks in the same area of my house, in the closets of my master bedroom and one of my spare bedrooms to either side of the second story dormer. My walls, ceiling and subfloor in each closet are completely destroyed, and one roof joist is completely spongy and decrepit from long-term water damage. I had it inspected by an insurance adjuster as well as a local roofing contractor and found out that nearly EVERYTHING about the roof installed in 2004 was incorrect on the north side. No starter shingles, no boot installation (Specialty Roofing did the installation- poorly- in 2011), no tin shingles in the valley on either side of my dormer, incorrect spacing between the edges of each shingle layer (they are regulated to be at least 5" apart to cause a brick/overlap effect- my shingles are all within 1.5" of each other, which means any rain I get goes right down that same edge as if it were a trough), and no WinterGuard or even felting underneath the asphalt shingles (which became part of city code in 2004)! The whole thing is a complete mess, and there is no way to "patch" a whole north roof. The "customer service" is an oxymoron with this company-- After leaving several voicemails with the company since May 27, I finally got in contact with Julie around May 30 and explained the situation. She didn't come out to inspect the property until the following Wednesday, June 5, and when she did she didn't come with any sort of ladder to even get up and VIEW the roof. Thankfully, I had already contacted Ace Roofing and gotten several photos from Charlie to show her the problem areas and ask for resolution. She said she'd "get back to me" and would "talk with the guy who actually did the work," and for the next week I got nothing but her voicemail from all three numbers I had from the company. Finally got her on the phone again on the 10th, at which time she sounded exasperated even though it's ME who is dealing with over $6k in damages from her company's criminal neglect. I asked the SAME DAY she came to inspect the roof on the 5th for her to get in touch with her insurance company and file notice, and it doesn't appear that has happened. Instead I finally got a nasty e-mail from her today stating some garbage from the previous property owner and denying any responsibility since their "warranty" wasn't with me, it was with him. My claim has nothing to do with a PRODUCT warranty and EVERYTHING to do with their company BREAKING THE LAW. I will have to take them to court and pay even more out of pocket, but I want to make sure their online reputation is sore from here on out. DO NOT WORK WITH THIS COMPANY. They have no interest in taking care of their contracts, no matter how poorly completed. This is why Specialty Roofing had to be called to complete the poor patch work in 2011-- Huber Home Improvement never returned the seller's calls!

Nyberg's Ace Hardware
This place is a convenient find. I had to fix the roof of my apartment last weekend and I can’t find dome nails in the house, it is a good thing that this place is open.

The selection here is overwhelming! They have 5-10 different brands for a set of screws! I love the fact that the costumers are being valued and presented with options.
Tips & Advices
Basic screen-door fixes can be pretty cheap, and most can be DIY fixes. Replacing a door closer can cost less than $15. Door hinges and latches are usually less than $10, unless you are getting really fancy. You’ll probably only need a basic screwdriver and possibly some screws or shims. Replacing the mesh can be more difficult, so weigh the value of mesh replacement vs. full door replacement when considering the actual screen replacement.
Screen door installation, for a standard swinging door (not a sliding screen), is relatively inexpensive. Depending on your area, expect to pay $50-$100 for installation costs. The doors themselves are usually inexpensive and can be as low as $40 (beware of the quality). If you are handy around the house, installing a screen door can be a great DIY opportunity.
A screen-door closer, or a pneumatic cylinder, is a device connecting the screen door to the door jamb. It is usually located at the top of the door and is designed to close the screen door automatically after opening. They can be easily adjusted to quicken or slow the door’s closing speed.
To stop a screen door from slamming shut, adjust the door closer, usually located at the top of the door. There is a cylinder inside the door closer that controls how fast or slow the door closes, and it is usually adjustable with a simple screw driver. If adjusting makes no difference, the door closer might be faulty and need replacing – a low-cost DIY project that requires minimal time and tools.
The most common cause of a sagging screen door is loose or worn hinge screws that attach the screen to the door frame. If they are loose, you can tighten them yourself. A loose latch between the door and the door frame is also a common cause of sagging. Again, check the screws and tighten them up if they’re loose.
