Schantz recycles many of the old materials removed from your home. Asphalt (roofing) and metals (gutters) are brought to the scrap yard to be recycled instead of dumped in crowded landfills. Also, our windows are certified green and our main siding product is made from recycled fly ash. In our office, we re-use files, and use scrap paper rather than new sheets when practical. It all adds up!
A man of integrity , honest and fair.Greg Schnoz has a great work ethic. He does beautiful work and can transform a space. He took a useless , hot screened porch, added new double paned windows,... drywall, and hardwood floors and made it a nice four season room. that added so much value to the home and it was finished perfectly. I trust him with my home.VIEW MORE »VIEW LESS »

Schantz found and stopped a roof leak quickly and permanently. They checked the source from the outside and from the attic and I've been dry for months. The others that came out probably would have solved my problem, but they wanted to replace the whole roof (at 9 years). I will definately call on them for future projects.

I suppose it doesn't surprise me that the others wanted to maximize profit. We like to assess the entire situation and suggest the best use of your money as if it was ours. Sure, we didn't get rich quick, but we would rather grow our faithful customer base for long term prosperity. Our repeat business keeps us in business. Thank you so much for taking the time to write this review!
I can't say enough good things about my experience with Schantz Home Improvement. My dealings with Greg, the company president, and Panida, the manager, were very professional and caring. The company replaced all of my double-paned windows in my home....outstanding workmanship and clean-up. I recommend them highly to you!!

Randy, we really enjoyed working with you too! We hope you will find some additional projects with your potential new home purchase. :)
I hired Schantz to re-roof two homes simultaneously this spring. Greg did thorough appraisals of the jobs beforehand, which separated him from the other companies I contacted. Admittedly, the price they offered was on the higher end of the quotes I received, but what sold me ultimately was the warranty they offered -- 20 years for each rental property. The work was completed on schedule and there was little trace left behind. I was very satisfied with the quality of the workmanship and the communication from his office throughout the projects.

I've used Schantz Home Improvement twice. They will be my go-to contractor for future projects. So far they've repaired my roof, replaced drywall, and wired in new lights. They won't lowball your bid - instead they will offer an entirely reasonable price for entirely professional work. The office manager, Panida, and the company president, Greg, returned my emails and phone calls promptly. Projects were scheduled in a reasonable time frame. Detailed written bids were provided in advance, and there were no "surprises" on the final bill. All of their subcontractors showed up on time (or even early!) on the right day carrying the right tools, did their job correctly, and left a clean workspace behind. The drywall guy did such a beautiful mud-and-tape job that he barely had to sand the finished project. I'm slowly fixing up an older house that suffered years of being "repaired" by the lowest bidders who did shoddy work. I trust Schantz and so far all of their work has held up beautifully (close to 2 years since the first project).

I had two doors replaced by Schantz earlier this year, and I couldn't be happier with the results. They showed up on time, provided quick and thorough installation, and even went the extra mile to fix some wood rot in the frame of my door that wasn't spotted until the install. We had a couple miscommunications about billing and the scope of the job, but Greg Schantz was always quick to step in and clear things up. I would definitely hire them again.

It has been a great experience working with Greg Shantz and his crews for my new roof and siding needs. They have exceeded all my expectations, earned my trust & all my future home improvement needs. Everyone was dedicated to meet my full satisfaction, very proficient in their work and simply a pleasure to work with. Absolutely top-notch performance and value. Give them the opportunity to show you what they can do. This job was our first undertaking and it will not be our last. There is simply no substitute for me or my greatest investment; my home. They are simply THE BEST!!

I had my roof replaced by Schantz in '94. Recently I noticed a water spot on my ceiling. I was informed that the workmanship warranty of 5 yrs was up but someone would come out to investigate the roof. Within a week of my initial call, Danny Wilson came out to investigate. I have a small house and roof line so he climbed up to the roof and quickly found the problem. He showed me the pictures he took of the culprit; pine straw needles and leaves that got under the shingles. Thankfully it's a manageable maintenance problem. Because it's a small job and their minimum would be more than the value of the job he told me exactly what needed to be done if I wanted to get someone else on my own. He also advised me on another potential issue and what to do about it. The best tip he gave me was to have the repairer to take pictures to show that the work was done correctly since I'm not climbing on top of the roof to look at it. Thank you Danny Wilson!

Were glad we could assist and sorry you had an issue although were glad is was not related to our work. We now offer a Lifetime Golden Pledge warranty through our GAF Master Elite certification.
Hired to replace an exterior (front) door and repair a rear door and window. The new front door looks and operates nicely and is very high quality. The installer was knowledgeable, and eased my concerns about my leaking window. A minor miscommunication about the door hardware was addressed quickly and adequately. The work was completed as scheduled.

I had to become the project manager of my siding and roof replacement to ensure the job went according to contract. Schantz installed wrong color roofing shingles, installed siding with excessive amount of face nails, broke an external gas line and didn't have the gas shut off to the house (just let it continue flowing), painted using inferior paint than in contract, pressured for payment prior to job completion, didn't tape house wrap to window frames as stated in the contract, left trash (beverage containers, fast food wrappers) in several locations across my property, never got promised case of matching roofing shingles for repairs. And, although there is a picture of using weather watch product at eaves and discussing the value of using it there, doesn't install it at the eves since Georgia code doesn't require it (and it isn't required since we don't average below 25 deg in January or experience hurricane winds). I wrongly assumed that the picture in the contract represented weather watch use in all vulnerable areas. The things done right were promptly returning my phone calls and ultimately reaching an agreement so we could finish the project. The end result was acceptable, but all of the issues were preventable and unacceptable. There are contractors in the Atlanta area that would have proactively prevented these mistakes in the first place.

Your job was completed 3 years ago. You may find this odd, but I thank you for posting this review. I've actually shared your project with many customers. First, you are correct that many items did not go well in your installation. No one is perfect and we are not an exception. However, when things go wrong, I would like to think this is where Schantz excels over other contractors. GAF had just introduced their new line of colors, and it took 5 days before anyone realized the wrong color was installed. The supplier had delivered the wrong color. I offered to replace the roof FREE of charge or credit you $2,332. You chose the credit. As for the leak barrier, we both know it is abundantly clear in the proposal (right next to the photo) where it is installed. We install in all required areas per GAF, not just the valleys as most roofers do. No one installs on the eaves as it is not required or necessary. This application is for ice dams (these don’t occur in the south). The siding in the rear of the home did have many “face” nails. Rather than make repairs, I had my crew remove and dispose of the siding on the entire rear of the home (1100 SF) and start over. My painter did in fact use the wrong paint, and we painted the entire home again at no charge. Your home was a bank foreclosure and in disrepair. The gas line was a small flexible copper line for the grill (against code) that was stepped on 50 times prior to us arriving. I guess we were #51. We fixed it (up to code) with a hard gas line along with the 10 other items (rusted lights, electric outlets, etc) that you "pinned" on us and I repaired at no charge. Unfortunately, no matter how hard one tries, sometimes things do not go smoothly. I personally project managed your job and take full responsibility. The end result of your project was of high quality and timely even with the mishaps. Thanks for allowing me to fill in the blanks.
Greg and his team did a fabulous job working with our condo association. We have a 1920s building that was in desperate need of new hallway windows. From start to finish, this company was professional, courteous, and accomodating to our needs. Anyone should feel good about hiring Schantz for their window replacements.

Schantz Home Improvement installed a new roof on my house 1˝ years ago. Their price was not the best, but I chose them because of their professional approach. They took time to thoroughly inspect my roof and took photographs to illustrate problem areas. Then they explained their recommendations, AND my options for each situation, AND answered all my questions. When they gave me their proposal it included photographs of the areas we discussed and described in detail what they would do for each situation. The roofing crew arrived on time, cleaned up thoroughly at the end of each day, and covered exposed sections of roof with a tarp between days. This week I discovered water dripping from my porch ceiling during a heavy rain storm. My house is 100 years old so I know stuff happens. What happened next is the reason I am writing this review. Greg Schantz came out the next day and quickly discovered the problem, took photographs, and showed me what the problem was. Later the SAME DAY a crew arrived and made repairs in less than an hour! All the work was covered by the warranty, and there was no charge for the repairs. We have now had 24 hours of heavy rain with no leaks. I am very happy to report that Schantz’ warranty service was just as thorough and courteous as their original work. If customer focus and prompt quality work are important to you, then Schantz gets my highest recommendation.

Thanks for the nice review Dave. We are sorry you experienced an issue at all.
My husband and I recently bought a house that needs quite a bit of work, including a new roof. I arranged to get estimates from 6 roofing companies, including Schantz. When they came out to provide the estimate, the gentleman who came out was punctual, courteous, and friendly. Out of all of the companies that came out, Schantz was the only one to bring written references, photos of their recent work, and they were the only company that wanted to get into the attic to inspect the roof decking. They weren't the cheapest estimate we got, but they weren't the most expensive, either, and they did an excellent job! They finished our entire roof in one day. I would definitely recommend Schantz Home Improvement to anyone who needs affordable quality work done and I will be keeping their number on file for any future work we may need.
