Crescent Boat Club on Historic Boat House Row in Philadelphia
"....Feedback from club members and others on the Row have been extremely complimentary. As I like to say, the house "pops" now. The freshly painted, replaced, or repaired woodwork is offset very nicely now by the brightness of the replaced stucco. Adding the much needed gutters will provide the protection some of this woodwork has not had over the years and will certainly preserve the work you just completed. Power washing the old stone frontage and finally ridding the front of the tar stains from the roof work we did years ago really looks terrific....".
"It seems like most of the time that the "boss" receives a letter from a customer, it's about a complaint or some sort of dissatisfaction. However, let me be the exception and tell you how pleased I am with your firm and the people who are members of your team. I refer specifically to Tricia, your receptionist, Eric Kowalczyk, your estimator (a guy with so much selling talent he could sell you the Brooklyn Bridge), and Joe Magro, your General Manager who is among the best problem solvers I have ever met."
Mildred had a stubborn leak in her garage which took us a while to figure out ...
"...Here is the good news. I think it was around July 22 Bill came to our home. I don't know his last name. He found out where the leak was . :) He could explain it, to you, the why, where, etc. It is November now, which is 4 months laters and no more leaking. What a miracle!"
"Having never experienced a roof replacement or siding before, we were apprehensive going into this job. What seemed like an overwhelming task to us was handled with ease by your employees. Larry & I are delighted with the end result C.D. Kaller provided us with."

"Please send me a Customer Satisfaction Completion Certificate for completion. My thank you to you, the foreman, and the crew for a job well done. "
Victorian Slate Roof Repair
"I must tell you how pleased I am by the work you did on my roof. The roof is, as you know, a most daunting challenge. Besides being the original roof on my genuine Victorian house (built in 1885), the roof is incredibly steep and almost inaccessible, it's divided into dozens of different sections, each one aesthetically pleasing but because of that, full of angles, strange corners, and decorative touches that make every slate hard to reach, hard to work on without disturbing its fellow slates, and hard to get a stable footing from which to work....
...I must say I went all out, calling about 15 contractors for estimates. I was particularly ipnpressed with you and two others who impressed me as being particularly competent, intelligent,. and articulate. It took me quite a while to settle on a choice, but I finally chose you because your proposal was so very detailed, specific, and thorough, and you priced each item separately rather than just giving one price for all the different repairs and improvements. After we talked, you also helped me distinguish between really essential and non-essential improvements which brought the price down to my limit. I appreciated the fact that you were willing to work with me on helping me meet a price I could afford and also patiently having about four different conversations with me to discuss my questions, misgivings and problems affording so much work to be done.....
The work was done in just two days; all your workers were pleasant and incredibly hard-working; I didn't see anyone taking a break. Then, at my request, you came over today, walked around the house with me, pointing out and explaining all the work you had done and how each repair corrected a major problem in the roof so that I'm left with a tight, attractive, and servicable roof. ...
I'm so grateful for the excellent work you did and the pleasantness of working with an honorable, dependable, responsible, competent, intelligent and pleasant contractor. I'm truly thrilled with the relationship we had and the results of your magnificant craftsmanship. "
I had a great experience using C.D. Kaller Roofing. Mr. Kaller was prompt in providing an in-depth written proposal and answering all questions. The price was fair in comparison to other estimates. The work crew were very professional and pleasant, and took care not to damage landscape plants. Mr. Kaller was available during and after the job to answer all questions. I have no hesitation in recommending C.D. Kaller Roofing.
CD Kaller has worked with HPHA on the restoration of buildings at the c1721 Penrose Strawbridge Farm as well as the restoration of the c1750 Novotny House
"Curt - and CD Kaller Inc - have a great appreciation of older and historically significant buildings. This shows through in the work that they do. They repair what needs to be repaired and replace what needs to be replaced, without disturbing the character of what has been there for 200+ years. We have another pent roof here at the property that needs replacing and other buildings on the property that will need cedar shake roofs as soon as we can raise the funds. Due to our ten years of dependable restoration and maintenance experience with Curt Kaller, I'm sure we'll be working with him again. "
