Last year, I noticed a leak coming from the roof of my condo. Our HOA found a guy to come out for repairs. He was going to fix my leak, another leak over a different unit, and clean off the mold growing on the tiles. Long story, but my leak was never repaired and he disappeared without finishing the job. He even left without his ladder! Anyway, I didn't figure out that the leak was not fixed (since he left in the middle of power-washing the mold off the tiles) until this year when the rain came.
I called Mar Vista roofing after a random search online, and Patrick was able to come by the next morning for a quote. I decided to go with him immediately, since he seemed very knowledgeable and professional, and his quote was reasonable. His crew came out the following day and repaired my leak. I was happy with his work and thrilled that he was able to get the job done so soon after I called him.
I didn't write a review right away, since I wasn't completely sure that the repairs were good. I kept waiting for more rain, until finally, it rained yesterday! I'm happy to report that the leak is fixed!!

"I cannot say enough about this family run roofing company! I had a roof that needed to be repaired in Culver City and I called around for estimates. Patrick from Mar Vista Roofing was at the house the next morning, and I had an estimate before he left. Once I made a decision to use Mar Vista for the work, the permit was pulled the next morning and the demolition crew (complete with dumpster for old shingles) tore off the old roof before lunch! The job was completed the next day. Mar Vista is fully licensed and insured, including for workers' comp. The rates are reasonable and if you find a company that can do it for significantly less, they are likely not carrying the appropriate amount of insurance to protect you and your property. I would gladly use Mar Vista Roofing again."

"I referred my elderly mother to Mar Vista Roofing after seeing reviews here, checking state license and BBB rating - also A+. Mom is very happy with the prompt service and diagnosis to repair a leaking vent in the garage roof. Especially since she had responded previously to a cold call (yikes!) from another company that told her the roof needed to be replaced - that guy never got on a ladder to inspect the roof from the outside and made his assessment standing inside the garage with a flashlight. Mom said the kind gentleman from Mar Vista Roofing arrived in a nice truck with ample ladders, and he examined the vent thoroughly from outside atop the roof before determining the roof was fine and only the vent needed to be resealed - a minimal repair by comparison and cost. Yay Mar Vista Roofing - we need more honest business people like you to serve our community!"
"Had a small, but growing waterline on the ceiling in one of the bedrooms in my house, and rain was predicted for the coming weekend. I left a message with Patrick on a Monday, got him out for an estimate on Tuesday, and he fixed the leak with a silicone patch on Thursday morning for a very reasonable price. I wanted to wait for a few rains to pass before I wrote a review, and I'm happy to say that the repair has held up great since then! Not only that, I found out from a bunch of my neighbors that he has done good work all over our street - my next door neighbor told me he's had Patrick working on his house for over 10 years."

"Patrick is the roofer of choice in my neighborhood and now I know why. His estimate was sensible and below the two others I got. He recommended GAF brand shingles, which is in line with Consumer Reports as being the best buy. We chatted for a while and my impression was that he was experienced, personable and a man of integrity. His removal crew came the next week to remove the old roof and there were a lot of workers and the activity was amazing. They were fast and efficient. I was kind of blown away. The roofing crew came a few days later (there was a surprise threat of rain and they came early the next morning and tarped the roof for safety) . Again it was an experienced and really competent crew. The new roof looks great. They cleaned up so that the yard was immaculate and free of nails. It's a pleasure to recommend Mar Vista Roofing.
I just want to give Mar Vista Roofing a great review for work that they DIDN'T do. I had a leak and Patrick came the same day to check it out. It turned out a drain was backed up and no work was required. He was polite and professional.

Some 20 years ago I had a good experience with dealing Mr. Pat Farrell of Mar Vista Roofing Inc. We were fortunate, my wife and I, to find out that they were still in business, which indicates they must be doing something right. So, when we needed our rental house and garage roofed, we didn't hesitate to call on Pat again. Like before, he arrived on time and presented himself in a very professional manner as he introduced himself and offered his business card.
He promptly got on his ladder and proceeded to inspect the roofs very thoroughly. Upon completion, he gave what we thought was a very adequate price, along with a more than satisfactory warranty. Additionally, he said he would stand by the job no matter how long it was. We found him to be very genuine, patient, a good listener, and a perfect gentleman. We read some of the other reviews that weren't so positive. We found them hard to believe, unless they had an ulterior motive like being a competitor that deliberately wanted to discourage a potential customer.
Pat's crew arrived on time and made sure any and all left over debris was picked up to our complete satisfaction. Pat arrived shortly after his crew and went over all the facets of what had to be done. He also came by 3 more times to check on the job.
Before he left on the last visit, just before completion, we had no worries about paying him in full so he wouldn't have to return again. We were very happy and most satisfied with their work during the project. We had the time to talk to their employees. Most of them worked for Pat a lot of years, two of which had 20 years of service. We would most highly recommend Mar Vista Roofing for any and all roof repairs. We have given Pat permission to contact us to talk to anyone who may be considering hiring their services at anytime. We're the Goldsteins and our rental is on Milwood Ave in Venice. Pat can take you by there anytime to see our property. I'd be glad to oblige you to verify this text to your full satisfaction and answer all your questions.
Thanks again Pat. It's been a pleasure once again.
Patrick came out to address a water leak and within minutes told me the truth about the issue. He let me know that it wasn't a roofing issue but a siding that had no flashing and therefore before a roofer could relay the shingles over the flashing the siding had to be replaced. Par tick could have put some tar over the trouble area and gotten paid, however he was honest and told me what I really needed to do to get rid of the problem. If you need a roofer the FIRST call you should make is to Mar Vista Roofing if you want to get it done right the first time.
