To Whom It May Concern,

Strickler Insurance Agency, Inc. is the owner of the Cornwall Lebanon Railroad building in Lebanon. The building was designed by a Philadelphia architect, George W. Hewitt for the iron-ore baron, Robert Coleman. It is a very special building with a lot of unique architectural features and a slate roof.

The building was suffering from water issues. Various contractors would try to resolve the water problems, but is persisted. Don Chocker of C & V Slate & Copper approached me to do some work on the building. I let him start with a small project, which helped me realize his abilities and his passion for old historic building. I soon realized his breath of knowledge and experience with old, historic building was far superior to anybody else prior to him. Through pictures, Don was able to show me that the prior contractors were only doing patch work and actually caused the building to sustain more damage. The box gutters had to be completely replaced, because the prior work was done wrong which ruined the wood underneath the metal.

Since the building is so tall, the pictures he took helped me understand the extent of the problems. He, also, gave me pictures of the completed work. Don has always acted in a professional manner and has taken pride in restoring this great building.. I would recommend him for your future projects.

Dear Mr. Chocker:

Many times during the process of making a decision on a building maintenance project, a large established firm is chosen over a small company. During our evaluation, and after reviewing proposals, we awarded the job to your company.

Bangor Episcopal Church is on the National Historic Register. Therefore, It must conform to a special set of rules. You were aware of the needs of our project and the conformity to the regulations and historical requirements.

The quality of your work was very impressive. The reconstruction was completed on schedule and you operated a very neat and clean job site. The finished project conformed to the original appearance. This was due to your desire to maintain a quality professional approach to our situation. You also made us aware of pending future problems with our structure. This situation to detail shows you are a knowledgeable professional with a desire to do a comprehensive overall evaluation and appraisal of the exterior of the church.

We are pleased with C & V Slate and Copper and will be using your expertise for future projects. We would not hesitate to recommend your company.

Very truly yours

Dear C & V Slate and Copper

My wife and I live in a duplex house in Lititz for the past 40 years. Our house dates back to 1878 so it is very old with the original slate roof still in use. Through the past 40 years we have done a lot of interior and exterior remodeling as well as changing the other half of the house into two apartments.

The main problem was always the slate roof and tin valleys. During the years i have had at least 3 different roofing companies working on the roof. I just did not think what they did was right. I could look up and see that if they replaced a pc. of slate  could see where they faced nailed the slate and put some pitch over the nail head. Donald Chocker came by the house last year and he asked if I was having any problem with my roof. Of course I was. He explained how he installs and replaces broken slate with no face nailing. I have been so impressed with Donald's knowledge and the work he has done for me that I have no problem recommending his work.

To the C&V Roofing Team,
I would like to take this opportunity to recommend C and V Slate and Copper as you consider roofing projects to preserve our Historical sites.
My home is located in Harrisburg's Academy Manor Historic District, an older section of the city. Many homes were built in the early part of the last century and most still have their slate roofs.
I and my insurance company found the work to be exemplary. The crew have both knowledge and respect for historically noteworthy homes and buildings. The attention to the small details of our home was very much appreciated and the extra effort clearly showed in the finished product.
If you have any questions about my experience with C and V Slate and Copper, I hope you will not hesitate to contact me at you convenience.

To Whom it May Concern:
C&V Slate and Copper's workmanship and advice in repairing the slate roof at First Church of Christ, Scientist, Jenkintown, was exemplary. The workmen were courteous, professional and neat. In addition to slate repair, C&V installed new snow guards and performed general maintenance, such as replacing soil pipe vents and repairing and painting the steeple.
C&V Slate and Copper honored its pricing and stayed in touch throughout the project, working collaboratively with us to solve any issues that arose. I would strongly recommended C&V for your roofing needs.

Dear C & V Slate and Copper,
My wife and I were so impressed with you and your employees that I felt compelled to inform you. We appreciated your thoroughness and honesty in evaluating our slate roof, gutter and water issues at our newly purchased home, as well as your plan of action to fix these problems quickly. Your crew was punctual, courteous, tidy, professional and they took great care to cover our shrubs and patio to prevent damage from the roof maintenance and ladders. You and your team turned this daunting project of maintaining a slate roof into a pleasant experience and the roof looks great. Please feel free to use us as a reference for future projects because we will highly recommend you. Thank you for taking pride in your work and treating our home with such great care.

To Whom it may concern:
May this letter serve as a reference for C & V Slate and Copper.
I was very pleased with the services of C & V Slate and Copper who are not your typical roofers; in fact I would not consider them roofers at all; they are craftsman, who are very skilled in their trade. In this day and age, care and dedication to the trade is seldom found but these qualities became fast apparent while working on my home. 
While on site they handcrafted custom chimney caps and collars out of sheets of copper and skillfully repaired terracotta roof tiles in addition to doing some masonry and iron work. My family and I reside in a 1930 Dutch Tutor Revival House of which the aesthetics are as equally important as a leak free roof. After completing my home they also worked on my neighbor's home and took care replacing slates and crafting a chimney cap appropriate to the style of their home ( nothing mass-produced here!).
The team was very professional, friendly and explained things very thoroughly and invited me to inspect each aspect of their work, although I felt very comfortable with them. They certainly have earned my trust and I was very pleased with the end results. In addition they went out of their way to ensure that the yard was thoroughly tidy at the end of each day. Although I am certain me roof will last for a very long time, I definitely plan on using C & V for other roofing projects. I am indeed please to sever as a reference.
