Family First

Spencer 4 Hire Roofing Serves the Community

Nathan Spencer, owner of Spencer 4 Hire Roofing, believes in the power of treating customers like family.

“I treat every roofing job like it is a roof over my own family’s head,” he shares.

This philosophy has served the local, family-owned business well, as they have been offering quality roofing services in Ahwatukee and surrounding areas for 15 years. And, while they’ve been in the Valley since 2008, their roofing expertise spans across generations.

“I am a third-generation roofer; my grandpa owned a roofing company out of state for decades,” Spencer shares.

Together with his wife, Donna Spencer—who handles human resources for Spencer 4 Hire Roofing—they took their generations of roofing expertise and opened the company when their family moved to Ahwatukee from California.

“We started out small in 2008, but have kept growing, and we are so grateful for how the Ahwatukee community has supported us throughout the years,” Donna says.

Spencer 4 Hire offers residential and commercial roofing, roofing repair, and installation services.

“It's our goal as a company to be a local resource for comprehensive roofing coverage,” Spencer says.

In addition to Ahwatukee, the family-owned business serves cities across the East Valley.  

At Spencer 4 Hire Roofing, family is everything. The company has three generations of roofers—Spencer, the owner, his dad John, who is the superintendent, and his son Chris, who is following in their footsteps.

“Our team has over 40 years of experience and contains three generations of roofers who are all professionally licensed, insured, and bonded,” Spencer says. “Our vision is to better lives, to better families, and to better our community. We do this by treating each other and our clients with respect and integrity.”

Spencer emphasizes that quality service and a close family bond sets the company apart.

“What makes our business stand out is not only our years of expertise, but our integrity and the way we structure each job,” he says. “We have a supervisor on every job daily to make sure that everything is watched and kept to the highest standards. We clean every job site every single day and we protect customers’ air conditioners, swimming pools, and more. We keep customers informed every step of the way and are always open to customer feedback.”

“While Nathan is the company owner and does more business strategy and leadership tasks these days, it’s not uncommon to see him put on a tool belt and help wherever is needed,” Donna says.

“I am never afraid to get my hands dirty,” Spencer says. “It’s a team effort.”

Donna adds that Spencer 4 Hire Roofing focuses not only on each customer’s home but the community. For example, the company was the grand sponsor of the 47th Annual Ahwatukee Easter Parade—complete with one of their employees dressing up as the Easter Bunny. Through the years, they have supported multiple local nonprofits and community events, including Kiwanis of Ahwatukee, the Lupus Foundation of America, St. Mary’s Food Bank, Armer Foundation for Kids, the Festival of Lights, and many more.

“We have always given back to the community because, without them, we wouldn’t be here,” Donna says.

“Our word is our bond and community, and family is everything,” Spencer adds. “We just happen to use roofing as a platform to serve our community and neighbors.”

In the spirit of service, Spencer 4 Hire Roofing is giving away a new free roof for a veteran. Locals can find out more information and nominate a local veteran whose roof needs replacing or repair by visiting, where there’s an online submission form under the About Us tab.

“For locals who haven’t worked with us before and want to connect to see what we’re all about, we always welcome them to come visit our office. We love when customers come and see what we’re all about—our family is always excited to meet other local families.”

“Our vision is to better lives, to better families, and to better our community."
