Professional Service expertly completed job!, 3/10/2015

This is an outstanding contractor. I would highly recommend them to friends or neighbors. Mine was the 3rd roof they did on our street. Look no further, these guys are the real deal!


Solid Work, 1/27/2015

Academy patched my roof a few years ago after we discovered a leak. I also bid the work out to a couple other roofing companies. Academy saved me hundreds of dollars and my interaction with them... was positive. Haven't had a leak in that area since. I highly recommend their services.

Very Poor Customer Service

A sheet of shingles fell off our roof which was installed by Academy Roofing. When I called to ask them to come out to put them back on, and they said they would have to give a proposal to fix the roof since it was installed over 2 years ago! It is something that would take 3 minutes to fix. It obviously wasn't nailed down properly, but the customer service rep couldn't have cared less. She said it wasn't covered by the warranty and we could contact our insurance company if we wanted! This repair is so minor that a handyman could fix it with his eyes closed and the customer service rep was unwavering. When I told her I wasn't going to have anything more to do with the company considering how unreasonable they are, she didn't seem to care at all. Putting a roof on is one thing .. maintaining good relationships with customers is another. They are obviously very short-sighted and uninterested in repeat customers.

Academy Roofing replied on 03-30-2015

This review was published to the wrong company. Academy Roofing informed this homeowner we had no record of ever doing their roof. The homeowner stated the roof was installed 8 years ago by another roofer. We have excellent records within our CRM and accounting and have no record of doing this roof. We offered to give a free repair estimate.

Bad Experience

After reading a number of good reviews on Kudzu we chose Academy for our roof repair. BIG MISTAKE!!!!!!! Their repair was shoddy and we had to bring in another contractor to fix the problem. Do not hire them for a repair until you review their warranty! We learned the hard way a reputable contractor will offer a one year no leak warranty.

Academy Roofing replied on 01-29-2015

This review appears to be clearly posted by a competitor. Academy keeps excellent records and we have no record of a prospect or customer of this name on the date posted or within the last 90 days. Academy Roofing does offer a warranty on our repairs so whoever wrote this review clearly didn't call us or have a technician visit the property.

Exceptional Experience

I couldn't give a higher recommendation. Our experience was outstanding. They worked with our adjusters and steered us through the process. I met the owner years ago while working on a software project for Academy. I was immediately struck by his honesty and desire to do right by his customers. When I needed a new roof, he was my first call. I trust Academy Roofing and you can too!

I would not trust them again

After reading great reviews, I agreed to have Warren and Academy put on a new roof. I was in their office the week before the job, and Warren told me he would be out between 8:30 and 9am, right after the crew started to tear off the old roof. Materials were delivered Friday afternoon so they could start first thing Monday. I got a call at 10am telling me the crew was caught in traffic. I called at 11am and they "were on their way". They showed up about NOON = more than three hours late. Warren told me that "there was ice on the roof" and they had to delay the start. The TRUTH was that they were finishing a job somewhere else. They had to rush to even finish, and they finished nailing IN THE DARK. Warren kept insisting "they did an excellent job on your roof" but how could they tell? IT WAS DARK. Nails were left in the drive and on the sidewalk. Trash was left in the yard. As far as I know, they have not been back out to inspect the roof, and that was four days ago. They tried to rush the job I paid them to do, made excuses/lied about being late, and did a poor job of cleanup and follow up. There has been no apology. If you are looking for a roofer you can trust, you would be better served hiring a different company.

Academy Roofing replied on 12-19-2014

Thank you for choosing Academy Roofing to replace your roof. Since 1999, Academy exists to bring truth, professionalism, and reliability to the roofing industry. We are known as a leader in the Southeast. We are truly sorry that you feel we did not meet your expectations. Our crew wasn't finishing another job that morning and we make no guarantee on a specific time for starting as traffic can be brutal coming from Gwinnett County which was the case for our crew. This time of the year we start doing the roof later in the day especially if there is moisture or ice on the roof to protect the safety of our crews. This hasn't been a issue for homeowners as safety is a top priority. Warren was on the job the whole day and supervised the crew. They did finish nailing the last six ridge cap shingles while the sun was setting but didn't work in the dark as you can see from the photo that was posted. Ridge cap shingles require two nails and is the easiest part of a replacement which is why roofers do it last. We didn't rush the job but I can see how you would get that impression as we have a big crew and they work very efficiently with each person knowing their responsibility for the roof replacement. We have been told they mimic a military operation as they are swift and efficient. As far as an inspection, Warren was there the whole time and did multiple inspections throughout the roofing process. The crew rolled the yards with a magnet constantly while the roof was being replaced. Warren came back the very next day and left a note on the entry door that he had gone back over everything again. It is extremely rare to find a roofing company with the same name and phone number for over 15 years. We trust that your opinion will change over time. Please do not hesitate to call our office at 770.426.1131 anytime. Thanks again for your business.

Not a review of work quality; one of customer svc

After a big storm, we had a couple of leaks that we needed to have looked at. We scheduled with Academy 3 business days in advance for an estimate then waited at home during the 2 hour weekday window of time that was assigned. The window comes and goes with no sign of the roofer, so we called to check on the status. Turns out that he was "stuck in traffic" (even though there were still 2-3 hours left in the workday) and then wouldn't have been able to make it out until 5 business days later. Clearly, that is not an option as there are active leaks on our roof. Needless to say that we cancelled and opted to go with a more reliable company.

Academy Roofing replied on 11-19-2014

We thank you for acknowledging it wasn't our workmanship and we are very sorry that things did not work out. However, as you stated the Atlanta area received a big storm and qualified residential roofing repairmen are on short supply. Academy prides ourself in quality and we were booked up immediately when the big storm hit as we are known for our repair services. Our repairman was stuck in traffic multiple times throughout the day which caused schedules to conflict. Academy makes no guarantee of a time but we try to the best of our ability work with people's schedules. We are disappointed we didn't get to work with you and you experience the quality of service that you read here on Kudzu.com.

Ethical

After finding what I thought were holes in my shingles, I called on Academy to get a professional opinion. The consultant arrived on time and took the time to hear my concerns before getting to his evaluation. After a quick but thorough inspection of my entire roof, I was shocked to learn that, in his opinion, the roof still has 8 years of life in it! As a service industry worker myself, it is the exception to find a service provider who gives an honest opinion, especially when the consumer already thinks they have a problem. Kudos and thanks to Academy Roofing for being those kind of people. Highly recommended, and will gladly pass along their name to any I meet who are in need of roofing work.

Highest Degree of Competence and Ethics

Having received estimates of from $4.8k to $8.3k to replace my roof, I was pleasantly surprised that, in Warren's highly experienced judgement, there were years of life left in my current roof, and mere simple repairs were in order. He further advised us that our expensive new gutters were improperly installed, and advised us on getting the problems addressed. Needless to say, we are impressed and grateful that tradesmen like Warren still exist .

Knowledgeable and Courteous

Due to our concerns of a recent leak, we called Academy Roofing. John, who was prompt and courteous, came to inspect our roof and explained the options we had to resolve the situation. His knowledge made the explanations easy to understand and to help us select the best resolution. I would recommend Academy Roofing.

Wonderful Experience

These guys did a WONDERFUL job on our roof. They gave me a very reasonable quote, beating out most competitors. Warren really knows his stuff, especially when it comes to attic ventilation. We are already seeing an improvement on our cooling costs. He also really cares about making your house beautiful. I was concerned because we had some old siding that was beginning to look bad where it meets the roof line. I thought after they roof was replaced that I would be up there replacing all of that siding but Warren had a great Idea to use some black flashing along the roofline. Now it looks perfect. The whole process from Sales to install, was top notch.
