Margaret Bach says: Two roofers that several agents in my office use– ependable and not the most expensive in town–are Frank Catanzaro & Calvin George. They do good work and very fair prices. Alternate phones: Home, 275-9574 and cell 335-1380.

Dewey fixed a small part of the roof that was leaking and fixed it right, and for a fraction of the cost that other roofers estimated. He charged $525 to just “fix” the leak (where my flat roof was meeting up with the regular roof) as opposed to others who said the only way to fix it was to reroof the whole thing for $2500!! Alternate phone: 268-3188. Also recommended by Arlyn Edmonson: DEWEY BOUDREAUX is a great roofer…specializes in old houses too. He was AWESOME and one of the only people I could find to work on asbestos shingles. He actually just got up on my roof, fixed the problem right then and said “That should probably hold you for awhile, but if you want me to come back and do it the “right” way and replace those shingles, I can.” I told him to come back and he only charged me $200….others would have charged ~$2000.\n\nPhone: (225) 926-6934\nRecommended by: Carolyn Schwarzhoff – 2340 Tulip St.
I had good luck with Cribbs. Their number is in the book. Last summer they re-did our valleys with metal flashing, so they will do smaller jobs. I really was very happy with their work and their service. Also recommended by Chip Coulter on Park: “They did a wonderful job replacing all of the shingles on our roof about two years ago, and were at our home just two days after Gustav to make temporary repairs. Their phone number is 344-0422 and their web site is http://www.cribbsinc.com/index.html.”\n\nPhone: (225) 344-0422\nRecommended by: Tania Nyman

Last roofer we used was Big Jim Construction. They were great, reasonable, thorough, cleaned the gutters. The address is 1810/1812 Olive St., if you want to look. -Frances & Frank\n\nRecommended by: Frances Davis
I use a guy named Carl from Ronnie Marino Plumbing. Extremely reliable and a very good plumber. Seems a little expensive like you have to pay for his helper even if his helper isn’t necessary. Hmmm.\n\nPhone: (225) 275-5890
Please withdraw our recommendation for Nathan Todora, the plumber. He is a VERY DISHONEST person and we are going to sue him. Thanks. ————— We used Nathan Todora Plumbing a couple of years ago. He got paid for half of the job and never showed up again. We had to sue him to get our money back. I definitely DO NOT recommend him!\n\nAddress: 6242 Antioch Blvd., Baton Rouge LA, 70817\nPhone: (225) 752-2819\nRecommended by: Anonymous
