Great repair work!, 1/22/2016

I had a great experience with Academy Roofing. I had a leak that was creating brown spots in my bathroom's ceiling. I called up Academy Roofing and their customer service was very easy to work with... and I scheduled an appointment in no time. Thomas came out and was very thorough in explaining the situation and how water was making its way into the house. I appreciate that he took the time to not only inform me but also answer any questions that I would have. His work was quick and effective while also sending me pictures of his repairs since there's no way I'm going up on that roof. I will definitely be calling Academy if I ever need roof repair in the future.

Old fashion customer service!!, 1/12/2016

Academy was called to inspect a leaky roof. Tom called at the end of the day to advise that he wouldn't be able to make it but promised (bar his death) he would be at our home the very next day. ... And he was. It was dark and Tom still acted as if it was 10am in the morning to inspect and diagnose our problem. He was thorough and I could easily tell, he wanted to help in the best way he could. He found the problem and did more than what was required to not only fix, but advised on additional things we can do to make things better. He followed up the next few days after knowing it would be raining to ask if we had any leaks. AWESOME SERVICE.

Did more than we expected!

We had a great experience with Thomas. Our problem was that the roof was only leaking during heavy rains. Before calling Academy Roofing, we had a different company come take a look. They said it was "probably" a plumbing problem which we knew was incorrect. The 2nd company that came out said it was a piping problem and he would have to replace them. Thomas from Academy found out the real problem. It was the sealing around the pipes that was broken. He resealed 5 different areas around the pipes on our roof. We also had very ugly stains on the wall and ceiling from the leak. We didn't expect that to be fixed when the roof was fixed. However, without us even asking, Thomas told us a trick on how to get rid of them without painting and he even did it for us in just 5 minutes. The stains disappeared right before our eyes. Amazing! Highly recommend.

#1 Roofing Company in my book

I was experiencing a problem with my roof recently and had no idea what was causing it. John Tewelow of Academy Roofing came to my home and did an extremely thorough evaluation and identified the problem. John's knowledge and experience is so impressive. I would highly recommend Academy Roofing - and be sure to ask for John! I know you will be satisfied.

Incredible Service

I had just been cancelled on by another roofer and was in an emergency situation. I had 36 hours to get the roof fixed so I could close on a house I was selling. I googled and found Academy. My call was answered immediately, I was scheduled with a technician within 15 minutes of my call. The technician showed up 3 hours EARLY! Fixed the roof eventhough I could not be there! SEnt me pictures of the work WHILE HE WAS WORKING. Finished with confirmation pictures of the finished job and allowed me to go to the office to settle the bill. The owner came out of his office when I asked to see him (DIDN'T AVOID ME WITH "...TOO BUSY") What an awesome experience. I will refer business and use them again!!!

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 3/30/2015

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.

Solid Work

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.

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 1/29/2015

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.

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.
