Most people wait until a storm hits to get a new roof, but Joe Hardy, Roofsmith Nashville project manager, says it's advantageous to repair or replace roofs before damage causes bigger predicaments.
"Torn or missing roof shingles could create extra, more expensive problems during storms. Our roofs undergo serious strain, and weather changes can cause significant damage to home exteriors," says Joe.
Roofsmith Restoration expanded into the Music City during April 2020 to handle both residential and commercial roof repairs and installations. Its Brentwood office is led by Joe, whose wife’s family has lived in the Nashville area for years. They serve customers in the 13 counties of Middle Tennessee, including the Nashville metro region. They hold a 95% rating in workmanship quality per a GuildQuality survey.
“Our mission is to help homeowners identify roofing damage, then get their claims properly settled by insurance companies. We take on the whole process, from A to Z," assures Joe.
Samantha Van de Kamp, a Roofsmith Nashville customer, can attest to this holistic approach. She says they moved into their Old Hickory home without knowing much about the house. "But, we had Roofsmith inspect the roof, and found it needed a full replacement. It was the easiest home improvement project I've ever been involved with. And, when it came time to sell that house, we received way over the asking price because everyone noticed and liked its new roof that came with a guarantee," she adds.
To identify potential roofing damage, this Nashville team offers free roof inspections. "If major damage is found, we assist customers in filing an insurance claim," Joe says. "If minor damage exists, we offer a cost-effective $299 roof tune-up."
The team specifically handles:
- common roofing problems/maintenance
- emergency roof repairs
- leaking roof repairs
- ridge vents/roof ventilation
- wood rot repair
- hail damage
- attic inspections
- seamless gutters and downspouts maintenance/repair, including inspections, measurements, custom gutter solutions, complete clean-up and debris removal, leaf protection systems.
Joe adds that Roofsmith Nashville work is done by salaried, licensed professionals. They are Haag Engineering-certified inspectors, meaning they know how wind, rain, hail and sunlight affect shingles—and insurance companies trust their judgment. In addition, Roofsmith is an Angie’s List super service award winner. Plus, the company is an Owens Corning Roofing Platinum Preferred Contractor, indicating they've earned the highest rating and can offer customers a 50-year warranty on new roofs and a 25-year warranty on workmanship installations.
"Using only quality materials from the best manufacturers puts us in the top tier of roofing companies. There are only 700 platinum contractors with Owens Corning, out of the 100,000 U.S. roofing companies. We were certified due to our project management, professional craftsmanship, reliability and dedication to service," explains Joe.
He adds they go to extra lengths beyond competitors in using tear-resistant underlayment, as well as ring-shank nails with double the holding power..
He's proud they received best customer service and top performer awards from Owens Corning, the world's largest manufacturer of fiberglass composites, including fire-resistant roof shingles.
Company culture is an important expectation at Roofsmith. Joe says crew members are hired based on work ethics and their ability to uphold the company's five core values: accountability, professionalism, servanthood, positivity and fun. "Our mission is to add value to every interaction," he adds.
Roofsmith Restoration offers in-house financing options for homeowners to cover work for roof repair/replacement and gutter services.
"Everyone knows the roof of their house is important, but it's easy to forget just how important until something goes wrong, like roof leaks that cause interior damage," Joe reminds.
