History Meets The Modern Era

Today, the company is thriving and attributes its continued success to using the best grade of material, providing excellent craftsmanship and superb customer service. We cover Essex, Union, Morris, Hudson and Middlesex Counties in NJ. While the company’s prices are competitive, it’s Michael’s expertise in diagnosing the exact nature of a leak and finding the most cost-effective solution for it, that makes the outcome superior to others in the business.

Because of his in-depth knowledge, he is often called in to repair other roofer’s mistakes – which end up costing a homeowner twice as much than if they had worked with him from the beginning.

Michael Harris Expands Company's Services

In the early 2000s, Michael expanded the company’s services to include masonry. It is a very natural extension since chimneys are part of the overall roof system. Now masonry accounts for approximately 30% of the overall business.

Further expansion now includes basement waterproofing, installation of new windows, skylights, railings, and specialty siding. In addition to expanding services, Michael responded to customer demand for financing. Michael J Harris now offers interest-free financing – available on jobs over $5000.
