The job was delayed a few weeks due to the weather but once they started, they worked till sundown several days, including Sunday. It's an 8000+ sqft flat industrial roof and it looks like an 8000... sqft skating rink. I got 4 completely diff. bids. ARS wasn't the lowest bid but the most sensible and I believe the best value.VIEW MORE »VIEW LESS »
I had ARS replace my roof and do small construction projects around my house. The quality of their work is very good and I recommend them. I interviewed 5 different roofers and 4 different... contractors and they stood out by explaining things well, doing quality work, and being willing to work with me.VIEW MORE »VIEW LESS »
Atlanta Roofing Specialists were knowledgeable in the steps required to ensure a good roof installation...especially the requirements for flashing of all kinds. They offer a good warranty on their work and were very professional. Good cleanup after the job was completed. My contact at Atlanta Roofing Specialists was Rictor Vipond. I highly recommend them.

This company did a fantastic job of replacing my roof. Their large crew removed the old shingles, replaced damaged plywood, installed the new roof and cleaned up throughly, all in one day. I've had problems with other contractors with small crews taking forever to finish a job. These guys are real pros who deliver on their promises. I recommend them highly!
We had our roof replaced by Atlanta Roofing Specialists in 2009 and they did a fantastic job. I recently contacted the company and spoke with Chris Hill to find out how to keep squirrels from getting in our attic. He came out to look at our roof and gave me professional advise and fixed the problem at no charge. Atlanta Roofing Specialists is the best!
I recently had my roof replaced by Atlanta Roofing Specialists, and dealt directly with Chris Hill. I would without reservation recommend ARS and Chris. Everyone you deal with is courteous and professional, including all the office staff and the roofing crew. You will get a competitive price, an excellent product, and a hardworking crew. Chris Hill is honest and ethical, and a pleasure to work with. I would not hesitate to refer others to Chris at Atlanta Roofing Specialists.
Chris Hill provided a solid proposal that targeted what should be done, rather than what he could try to sell me. Only addition was 7 feet of needed flashing. The crew completed the roof in one day, despite a rain delay. They quickly covered in tarps and dried off with a blower. They did a fine job around vents and fireplace, including an unexpected water diversion above the chimney. They cleaned up thoroughly and left no nails and only four quarter sized pieces of felt. The roof looked so good that a neighbor passing by stopped and got their card. Overall, I was very satisfied with the job.
We had Chris Hill out to our house this am to check out a spot where our home inspector claimed water was coming into the attic. Chris went up on the ladder, crawled through the attic, and determined that there was in fact NO reason for concern. He was kind, efficient, reassuring, and honest. That is a perfect combination of qualities and leaves me a very happy customer! Oh, and did I mention no charge? When we need a new roof put on our home, I know who I will call. Thank you, Chris!
Hands down a great experience! Mark Rutherford was very professional and took the time to educate me and address my concerns. The crew showed up on time as scheduled and after they stripped the roof the foreman told me I needed 7 sheets of new decking. which didnt concern me because I knew I would need some and had been given up front pricing on the contract. The crew did such a great job as to attention, detail, and cleanliness that I gave every member a cash tip! After the install Mark came over and inspected the job and took care of one small concern I had and I wrote him a check,(no money up front). I have and will reccomend this company!
I called for a second opinion after another company said I needed $$$ work. Atlanta Roofing said I didn't need any work. They checked my roof and made sure everything was in order and didn't charge me for it. Strong ethics and will definitely use them again!
This is how a company should do business. I am so pleased with every aspect of service from Atlanta Roofing Specialists. They did a wonderful job from start to finish. Mark is maticulous and it shows in his ethic, workers, product, timelyness and customer satisfaction. I cant thank them enough for doing their job properly.
The Estimate - Mark took his time and gave us a thorough estimate, providing available options. He told us which options he recommended and which he felt we did not need. He was helpful, but never pushy. The price was very competitive when compared with the other three bids we received. The Company - I research any company working on my house. ARS has excellent Kudzu ratings and an A+ rating with the BBB. Additionally, they are Master Elite certified with GAF, the shingle manufacturer. The Work - The crew showed up on time and put tarps over the shrubs around my house to avoid debris falling on/in them. They cleaned up the worksite as they went. All nailing (both the plywood that was needed and the shingles) were hand nailed. The finished product looks fantatic and I'm confident will hold up well. The wood on my roof was in poor shape and ten sheets of plywood were needed to get it in ready for shingles. The crew sent a guy out for the plywood and had replaced almost all of it when the supervisor came by and noticed is was three ply, not four ply. He made them take it all off and replace it with four ply. I would never have known the difference, but seeing that attention to detail and worksmanship left a huge impression on me. I have already recommended ARS to several people. The work they do is top notch and their prices are solid. In an industry with so many shady companies it was a pleasure to work with such professional people.
A few of my friends referred me to Atlanta Roofing Specialists after their own great experiences. Now that ARS has finished my roof, I can honestly say that there aren't many companies that are run like this one anymore! ARS takes pride in their work. They always keep contact with you if there happens to be any schedule changes, and let you know way in advance. I have had people stop and ask who put my roof on, and I've gotten tons of compliments. They really know what they're doing, and don't leave any mess behind. Their prices for quality are absolutely unmatched. I did the research. Trust me! Don't hesitate to trust this company with your home. They will do you right, every time. Thanks guys!
With all the new roofers that have come into town I did not know who to use. I was very happy when Kevin with Atlanta Roofing Specialists came out to bid my roof. After I did my homework and researched this company they were the best choice. They completed the work as schedule with great supervision and Kevin even did a final inspection. I would recommend them and am thankful to have a honest company work for me.

Although our roof was put on fine, when it came to the final inspection, Atlanta Roofing Specialists never followed up. I made the mistake of paying them the final 10% and then they never fixed the items they said they were going to fix during the inspection. They ignored my email, and unfortunately what could have been a good experience turned sour. I cannot recommend them due to their lack of follow-through.

I hired ARS to re-roof our home a few months ago. It still looks as good as the day they finished. They are a GAF certified roofer, something that is very important to me when comparing quotes from different companies. Rictor Vipond was my sales rep. His honesty and thoughtfulness was very helpful in making my decision. He took the time to explain the entire process and was always available when I had a question. The crew that came out did a fine job and I couldn't be happier with the final product. Thanks Rictor and thanks ARS! Notes: When comparing quotes, no two roofing materials are the same. Settle on what product you want to use and then ask all contractors to only quote you on it. Also, every company I talked to has an additional charge for decking materials. ARS also has an extra charge for flashing. Keep these differences in mind when comparing quotes. Always insist on 100% payment upon completion. No Exceptions! Every company you talk to should have at least a million dollar insurance. Don't let anyone inspect your roof without showing proof of insurance first! Finally, always ask for a lien waiver upon completion and final payment. ARS has a form letter that they will fill out and give to you if you ask. Remember, in Georgia you don't need a license to be a roofer. Doing your homework ahead of time will save you headaches later on.

Highly recommend these folks. The service was outstanding, the cost was within the range of its competitors, and the finished product looks great! The greatest part was the entire roof was replaced in one day and that included repairs, replacements, correcting "things" the builder never did that was supposed to have originally been done, and cleaning up the work site. What really made us go with these folks was that the roofing consultant didn't try to sell us on his company. He used his experience as a roofer and personal customer service skills to help us work through the whole process of the roof replacement. BALerch 4/16/10

I think whoever wrote the review for 're-repairs for their work' MUST have the wrong company. Atlanta Roofing Specialists repaired my home twice (both repairs were small-less than $700) and I received a one year money back guarantee and a one year warranty both times. I was so pleased with their work that I had them install a new roof on the home where I moved and referred them to my sister. Everyone I dealt with was very professional and nice-great company!
