“Dear Don, I want to thank you and your crew for the excellent work that was performed in replacing the roof on my home. I was impressed with the way your crew worked well together and completed the project in a very timely manner. They were also very polite and answered any questions that I asked of them. I will be happy to recommend your roofing company to any of my neighbors.”

“I write this letter on behalf of the Stauss family, to thank them for the splendid work that they recently completed on my home in Ocala, Florida. There is an old saying that the secret to success is to be pleasant, punctual and prepared. The Stauss family and their co-workers certainly offer proof in support of this statement. Because I live several hundred miles away, it meant more than I could have imagined to work with someone in the area who was trustworthy. That person was Don Stauss. When I first called Donnie Stauss, he made an appointment to meet with me that same day – and he kept his appointment. If you have an opportunity to meet the Stauss family, the first thing you will notice, aside from the fact that they are each intelligent and hard-working, is that the family is imbued with a spirit of gratitude. This is demonstrated by the warmth with which they greet and interact with the people they serve. To say that they were helpful to me throughout the time we worked together would be a vast understatement. The Stauss family is not only conscientious in business, but genuinely extended hospitality to me during my stay in Ocala. The work on my home was completed in a timely fashion and showed attention to detail. The roof installation was on a historic craftsman era bungalow, and some of the exterior woodwork had been destroyed during the hurricane activity which occasions Florida. Don Stauss’s master-carpenter, Ronnie Gay, matched the existing architectural elements with precision. I have no difficulty recommending Big “D” Roofing to anyone who is seeking to maintain, or improve, their property. Big “D” Roofing is a rare blend of talent, skill and ethical behavior, and I am blessed to have made acquaintance with the Stauss family and their associates.”

“Don – Just a short note to thank you and the Big “D” gang for the great work on my new roof. Everything went smooth and I can’t believe it was all completed in one day. For me that was outstanding. Needless to say, the stress and inconvenience of installing a new roof can be nerve raking. Big “D” made the whole experience go by quick and uneventful. Which is good! So Barbara and I are very happy with the results! And, it’s nice to know that we have a roofing contractor that will be with us in future if ever the occasion arises. Thanks again for your great work. Merry Christmas and all the best with the future.” –Bill & Barbara Luthin (2013) “Our roof started leaking just 2 weeks before our wedding. Guests were coming to stay at our house and it was raining in the guest room! Big D fixed our roof before our big day and before our guests arrived. The work they did was exactly what they estimated. They replaced rotten wood and shingles, stopped all the leaks and they closed holes where small animals were getting in. The roofers were on-time, worked hard, and cleaned up when finished. Big D Roofing (Don Stauss) was recommended to me by a friend and I will definitely recommend Big D Roofing, too. “

“Two Good Roofs… My wife and I chose Big D Roofing back in 1987 when the home we were buying needed a roof prior to everyone signing off. Big Donny came through for us, with the entire job done within 48 hours of request. Then, 23 years later, it was time for another roof, we called Big D. The job was done at a fair price, quickly, neat and tidy (meaning no clean up afterwards for the owner) and I can say this… “If you want roof satisfaction in Marion County, call Big D and you will be completely satisfied. ”

“After many rains it is apparent the roof is fixed! Even though you told me you were 99.9% sure it would be fixed. After 5 or 6 years of leaking and us trying to patch it and another roofer re-roofing and 5 or 6 trips after trying to fix it. I was still the Doubting Thomas. You cannot imagine the relief of knowing I do not have to put pots under the leaks in Doug’s room (just behind his bed). Your effort is really appreciated. Thanks very much from us all. ”

“The City of Ocala has been doing business with Big D Roofing Company and Don Stauss for the past thirteen years. The City has an annual contract with Big D Roofing for all re-roofs and roof repairs at all City buildings. In addition, if we have a problem with any of our roofs, Big D responds within two hours to take care of the problem; sooner if it is an emergency. Last year, Hurricanes Jeanne and Francis did damage to several of the City’s roofs. Big D responded during the storms to keep the water from damaging the interior of these facilities. Big D Roofing is a first class organization and does excellent work. It has been a pleasure doing business with them.”

“It has been my pleasure in working with Big D Roofing, Inc. for the last 10 to 12 years in a variety of minor to major roof situations. Don Stauss has always performed above and beyond what has been asked for in meeting our requests for roof maintenance and replacement. In 2004 Hurricane Charlie destroyed roofs on two of our large and critical buildings in the Polk County area and within one to two days they were on the site making repairs. These two buildings were major support centers for materials and transportation for the storm restoration in the center of the state for Progress Energy – Florida. During this same time one of our Combustion Turbine Power Units in Avon Park, Florida went down due to roof failure. Big D Roofing, Inc. made temporary repairs so that this unit could come back on line and provide power to approximately 30,000 customers in the Polk, Okeechobee, and Hardee County area. This was a job well done for Progress Energy – Florida. The employees worked long and hard hours under extreme weather conditions to make this happen. If my records are correct, Big D Roofing, Inc. has replaced approximately 59 roofs that range from about 500 square feet to about 12,000 square feet and untold number of roof maintenance repairs. I would highly recommend this roofing company based on the excellent service they have provided for Progress Energy – Florida. ”
