Thanks to you and your company Shingle Magic…
My mom remodeled her house with the money she saved from not replacing the entire roof. She was quoted $14000 to replace decking and shingles. As you can see in the attached invoices and information, the $10 k she saved went towards siding and paint as well as Iron Gates and new doors and fencing. She even got a new fountain in the atrium along with many other home enhancements. Cool Shield is an incredible product and my mom Joan Brennan is a happy and appreciative customer. - Allen L.
