Chuck stopped by and offered to do a roof inspection. After I confirmed that the company was local in Appleton, I allowed him to go on the roof. He confirmed we had hail damage and provided a report to what he found. The insurance adjuster could see it from the ladder before going on the roof.
Chuck was great to work with and always professional, and very friendly. He helped us with our insurance claim, pick the right color shingle and gave us some job addresses that had our shingle choices installed that we coud see what the roof looks like completed.
The team of roofers arrived before 7 a.m. and were here to get the job done. Our 3 bedroom house with a 2 car attached garage and our 2 car garage in the back yard was completed by 12:45 pm. 5 3/4 hours to complete the job and do all of the cleanup. The roofing team did an awesome job. They new roof is perfect.
Brookens Construction is good company and I would absolutely recommend them to family and friends!

Brookens Construction did a roof replacement for me in June of 2022 . I met Barry who did a lengthy inspection of my roof then showed me the damage,Barry met with the insurance adjuster and got this project scheduled. A job well done from Barry to Don the project manager and his hard working roofing crew. Everything was done with Quality workmanship and materials. I was very pleased how the roof replacement went and hired them to do the roof on my mothers house. Thanks to Brookens

Brian McGuire was the salesman who came to our house the day after a hail storm. He was awesome and provided a detailed pdf report. The install crew was great. Cameron, the Project Manager, was on-site for the duration of the work and then performed a detailed review and walk-through of the finished work. Cameron was a great communicator abs kept us informed. Lastly, Ashley Cox was an office contact as we had questions leading up to the actual days the work was performed. Her responsiveness to our email questions went way above expectations (emailed back once at 8am on a Sunday morning). The entire experience with Brookens was terrific and would highly recommend them.

We initially met with Aaron and everyone we dealt with from that point on was very professional and timely. Tyler and Norman were amazing to work with, and I can’t say enough on how Norman’s crew did installing our new roof. They tore off and installed 50+ square of roofing on a complicated roof line in just under a full day because of rain in the early morning. Constant communications and follow up has been above and beyond what I typically see from businesses today.
I highly recommend Brookens construction.
