“Atlanta Roofing Specialists fixed my roof. The roof looks perfect now. They just have great customer service. They come when they say. They get an A.”

“Atlanta Roofing Specialists replaced our roof. They were great. They came out. They did it really quickly. It was very efficient. They did a roof replacement. Everything is looking great and working fine. The roof looks great. I haven't been up there to inspect it myself because it's kind of high up there. It's a two-story house, but it looks great from the street, and we haven't had any leaks. I'd grade them A. They were great. I would recommend them to anybody.”

“Everybody was super nice. I was a little neurotic, and they were great. They just really took the time to make me feel better about what I was doing, and it was just a really positive experience. They replaced my roof. Everything is working good now. I'd give them an A.”

“I wasn't even at home when they did the repair, and the repair was done perfectly. They repaired my roof. Everything looks great. I'd give them an A.”

“I've been working with Atlanta Roofing Specialists for years. Their word is a bond. They do everything that they're supposed to. They do a complete follow-up. My customers are extremely happy with them. I've used them on commercial as well as residential. They do residential and commercial roofing. Everything looks fine. I don't have any problems at all. I've never had a difficulty with them. I'd give them an A. They've been excellent all the way through. I recommend them all the time—they're my first choice.”

“Atlanta Roofing Specialists did it as they said they would do it—a complete new roof. I think the roof is fine. I haven't noticed any problems. Their customer service was excellent. I'd give them an A.”

“I'm just happy with their service. No problems afterward. They put a new roof on a couple of properties I own. The work looks excellent—no problems. I'd give them an A.”

“It was good. I've worked with them for years. They're honest. They work hard. They don't leave a job while they're on it. They've done roofing for me. Everything looks excellent. The customer service is good. They're very responsive, easy to get a hold of. They're right up-front with you. Good people. They get an A.”

“They were great. They put my roof on my house. They got the job done and it was fine, no issues. They get an A.”

“They did a great job, and the roof looks great. They were very easy to work with. They also did some painting. They painted our exterior. They were just really great, and we'd recommend them to anyone and would use them again. I'd rate them A.”

“I think they did a good job. The timing was good. Just good, conscientious people. They did a roofing job. The quality of work of them met my expectations. I'd rate them A. I did not have a problem. I would recommend them.”

“I use them over and over. They did roofing work. I like the fact that the guys cleaned up behind themselves. I'm about to call them back out. It might be a warranty, but they may again tell me that it's something else. I trust them. They were recommended by my manager at work. I'd give the experience an A. I would recommend them.”

“It worked out real good with Atlanta Roofing Specialists. They did the roof. The builder of this house, when they put the water spouts, in they put them in backwards where the water shoots into the house, and it caused a leak. They had to repair the whole front part of the roof, where the porch area is and above the garage. They redid all of that and then a little bit of work inside of the garage. Everything's holding up fine. There's no problem with all the rain we've had. There's no problem, no issues. I'd give them an A for the overall experience because they came and they fixed it on time and they got everything done. They cleaned everything up real good, and then they departed. Their cleanliness and expertise were good. I was able to communicate with him, and we discussed everything. They took before pictures and after pictures. I was able to prepare the work. I would probably recommend them.”

“They did a good job. Quick. There was something on my roof, a little opening to the atmosphere, and it had a little leak on it. They get a nine out of ten. They get an A.”

“They did a good job. They replaced my roof. They did a good job with customer service. They get an A.”

“Everything was good. They did the job. They did my roofing job. I'll give them an A-.”

“I just thought that they were a very professional company. They were very down-to-earth. I liked the promise. They had come highly recommended, and I'm glad I chose them. They installed a roof, a brand-new roof. Overall, they get an A from me. They did a fantastic job, cleaned up perfectly, then came back a few days later after the rain and inspected my roof. They didn't just take the money and run once they were gone. They kept in touch with me and made sure I was satisfied. They came back. They waited a few weeks to let the roof get rained on some, and they came back and went on the roof and inspected it. They were here right when they said they'd be, and they obviously knew what they were doing. I was very satisfied. They had come highly recommended to me by a couple of people, and that's one of the reasons I chose them. I would recommend them. If anybody asked me if I recommend a roofer, that's the only one I'd give. Of course, that's the only roof I've ever bought. Roofs aren't really things you go around buying frequently, but I was very happy with them.”

“The insurance company screwed up things, and they sat around and waited until the insurance finally got their act together before they wanted the money to pay for it. They replaced the roof. Everything is working fine as far as I know. Nothing else stood out about their customer service. I'd give them an A. They were here when they said they'd be. I'd be likely to recommend them.”

“They were communicative and attentive. They were quick. They cleaned up after themselves. Did what they said. Price was what they said. They replaced the roof. Everything looks goods. I'd rate them A.”

“My experience was extremely positive. Atlanta Roofing did repair work as well as new coping for my flat roof. They are very professional and efficient, and the owner is very responsive. I'd give them an A for the overall experience. I have already recommended them to several people.”

“They were fantastic. They patched a small hole in my roof, and then they did an emergency fix where we had a leak. They came right out and got it done for us. They did a great job. Overall, I'd rate them as an A.”

“They replaced my roof. They seemed very professional. They were easy to work with, and I liked all of the people that came. The whole crew was wonderful. I'd give them an A for the work.”

“Atlanta Roofing replaced my roof and a good bit of decking. They were thorough and really professional. They get an A.”

“I had some work done. I had them coming out this week to look at another thing, so I'm happy with the work they did. I had had my roof replaced back in 2009 maybe, after a storm, and there was an area that had developed a leak so they came and checked it out. He found that originally when they replaced the roof, there was an area that maybe didn't use the best materials available. It'd degraded and needed to be replaced. So they fixed it and it doesn't leak anymore. They're an A+ company.”

“They've done my roof and I have an architect roof. Everything, everything was a five. Customer service, the work they've done—awesome. Excellent, A+. Highly recommend.”

“It was excellent work and I had no problems.”

“It was excellent work with no complaints. I would recommend them. It was good work, very good work. There were no real issues. I would recommend them.”

“They replaced the roof and the gutters. They gave me a full quote, called beforehand, and did the job very well. They cleaned up afterward. I'd give them an A+ rating for the overall experience.”

“They were very efficient, very clean, and they explained everything very well. They were pretty close to the quote that they had given me and they did extra work for me as well. Very, very nice people. They put a whole new roof on the house. They put the vents across the top of the roof and put new gutters, downspouts, gutter guards, and they replaced what's called a Mansard roof—a barn shaped roof. I have two windows in the front, and two windows in the back that are in the roof. They redid all the wood around those windows and painted. They found several rotten places around the house that needed work on. They fixed that, painted the trim on the entire house, and painted the shutters. I had a piece of sheet rock that fell in the garage that had a leak, so they fixed that and painted the ceiling in the garage. I think that's it. I would give them an A+ rating. I have already recommended them to my neighbor. She's trying to get some quotes to have some things done. Definitely, if anyone asked me, I would recommend them.”

“They were great. A portion of the roof was built incorrectly, so the flashing was done correctly. They did some framing and new flashing. They repaired the damage that was done. We had other people to come and the first two said nothing was wrong. They immediately told us it was built wrong. A pest control guy had told us the roof was built incorrectly. I told him what the other two said and he told us to get someone else because they were idiots. When he came he told us that was what was wrong. So A, he did it correctly and B, he walked around and showed me a bunch of other stuff about our house. Overall, I'd give them A+.”

“They did a roof repair. They replaced some shingles. I've used them before; they were prompt and timely. I would give them an A+ grade.”

“They were doing a PTO and a standing steam roof. I liked that they were a small company. The owner was really involved and made sure we were happy. I would rate my overall experience as A+.”

“They did my house, my mother's house, and our barn. I like that they're honest and do exactly what they say they're going to do. I'd give them an A+ rating for the overall experience. I have already recommended them.”

“They were replacing the entire roof. Mr. Bishop, who came out and did the estimate, was the kindest guy I've ever met. He was very professional and informative. When he came back out, I pointed out some issues that weren't addressed and he took care of that for me. It was the manner in the way he handled everything. I'm very pleased with him. Overall, I'd give them A+.”

“It was good. I liked their service, their professionalism, and when they made the promise, it came true. They replaced my whole roof. They earned an A+. I've already recommended them to about eight or nine people already.”

“I think they did our roof. They did good quality work and cleaned up after themselves. They actually did two roofs. They delivered what they said they were going to do. I chose them over a different company because they actually contacted us. They were doing sales on the street and came by. I'd give them an A.”

“They were easy to work with, honest, and they did good, fast work. I chose them over a different company because they were referred to me by someone I trust. I'd give them an A grade.”

“They actually repaired the roof. We had a leak and they fixed the leaking part. They had to fix the slope of a rooftop on our front deck also. We had used them before to do our entire roof and they were very good. We asked them to come again and they were professional and did a good job. I'd give them an A grade for our overall experience.”

“All of this was done long distance. They were very attentive, very informative, and they explained everything that they were going to do. I had my property manager go by the house afterward, and they said they did a really fine job on the house. They didn't do a lot of roofing stuff to be honest, mainly a lot of side work and facial board stuff. A lot of stuff that's adjoining to the roof. There was maybe one or two spots that were roofing based, but everything else was siding and gutter, parts around the house that were gutter. I'd rate them as an A.”

“I had a positive experience with Atlanta Roofing. It was a repair job with a leak in the roof and they applied some flashing around the skylight. The guy was very personable, professional, and honest. I'd give them an A for the overall experience.”

“They did a residential re-roof. They were very personable, straightforward, and honest. I'd give them an A for my overall experience.”

“They did a repair on some fascia board. They were responsive, on time, and did a good job. It was a positive experience. Overall, I'd give them an A rating.”

“They replaced the roof. They were efficient and did what they said they were going to do. Overall, I'd give them an A.”

“Overall, we had a good experience. They replaced the roof. My fiance mostly dealt with them, but it was very quick. Overall, I'd give them an A.”

“They patched a leak where an old satellite dish had been attached incorrectly. The guy that came was very personable and seemed really helpful. Overall, I'd give them an A grade. It's held up well. I would recommend them because they did a good job.”

“They took care of everything in my absence. I was working most of the time. They did the repairs and made my insurance company happy. They did some replacement of some shingles and some vent covers. Overall, I'd give them an A grade. I mean other than looking at the roof, I'd have never known they were there.”

“They did skylight replacement for me. It was efficient and I liked the product. The workmanship was to my standards. I would rate the overall experience as A.”

“They actually did a follow up for us. When we bought the house, there was a warranty on the roof and a roof leak; they took a look at it. They showed up when they said they would. They let us know what the problem was and how to fix it. It worked out great. Overall, I'd give them an A.”

“They replaced my whole roof. I liked having a new roof. Overall, I'd give them an A rating.”

“The problem was a leak. They fixed a leak in my roof. The roof doesn't leak anymore. I wasn't here any of the times they came and had no interactions. I'd recommend them based on the work I had done.”

“We had some work done with Atlanta Roofing. I'm not recording anything. Somebody missed it to start with, but he found it and fixed it. I'd use them again. I didn't say there was a few complaints, they took care of everything.”

“It was positive. They got it done.”

“They performed the work on time and did a good job. They built a membrane on our roofing system for drainage.”

“It was good. They were very efficient. Some of the shingles were missing and then they replaced it. I'm happy. They fixed some small problem for me and I like that I know the people. They are very nice and friendly. I would say A.”

“An entire replacement. They were, I don't know. They did a good job. They seemed to have pride in their craftsmanship. They do a good job. They also warrantied their work, that was another. I felt fairly confident with their warranty. They deserve an A.”

“They completed a flat roof without any leaking, and it was a very complicated job. Underneath this flat roof was my office—the roof was actually a deck with tile on top of the roof. The people who did it actually had to come out and take off an old roof someone else had just done. Because of how it needed to be sealed and put against the house to keep it from leaking, it was just extremely complicated—more complicated than the first contractor thought, which is why the roof leaked. It's been over a year, and there has not even been one sign of leaking even though people walk on that roof all day long. Their customer service was pretty awesome. Quite frankly, I interviewed a lot of people to fix this. This was a pretty important addition, and Atlanta Roofing Specialists was the only group that I could tell technically knew what had to happen in order to not just make a flat roof work, but also to put the stone on top of the tile in order for it to be weighed down. There was just a lot of stuff that went in it, and they were the only people that actually knew the mechanics of how this would have to happen in order to prevent it from leaking down into the room below. I would probably give them an A.”

“We were a previous customer. We moved to a new home that was just outside of their coverage territory, but they agreed to travel outside of their area to take a look at the roof because it was leaking and having problems. They quickly got their construction crew out to take care of some chimney reframing work that needed to be done, and they reshingled the area that needed to be shingled and repaired the problem. We used them years ago at a previous home to do an entire roof replacement, and we were extremely satisfied with their work. We'll go with an A+.”

“I used Atlanta Roofing Specialists for a roof replacement. They used GAF products. The customer service and quality of work were excellent. I'd rate them as an A.”

“Atlanta Roofing Specialists did my roofing work for me. It went really well. It went great. They nailed the shingles by hand, and that is what I liked. They're the only company that I got a quote from that did hand nailing. The rest use some kind of gun or something. They did a great job—A+.”

“They showed up promptly, detailed the work, and then did the work per the estimate. I've got a flat roof, so they had to go around and reseal a lot of areas, and then they put a metallic silver paint on. They cleaned up. The customer service was good. I would say they were A+.”

“They arrived on time, and they did the job they were supposed to do. They repaired my roof. The customer service was good. We've used them in the past. I'd give them an A+.”

“I had no problems with Atlanta Roofing Specialists. They did some patching. I guess we had a storm or something, and I had a couple of leaks, so they patched the roof for me. I haven't had any issues with it. They did the job and were in and out. The customer service was good. I think I chose them because they actually showed up. I would say it's an A+ for them.”

“It was fine—it was good. They were eager to make us happy and to work with our budget as far as I can remember. They repaired the roof. I think I chose them for their availability. The customer service was good. I would say I have no complaints. I'll give them an A+.”

“They did a great roofing job, and I had no complaints. It was what they said they would do, and there were no hang-ups on it. They did the entire roof. They left the roof in good shape. It was clean, and the customer service was great. I chose them based on their reputation. They're A+.”

“We used Atlanta Roofing Specialists, and they were great. They came out and fixed a leak we had, and then they actually ended up doing our entire roof. They were efficient—they had a large crew out here and did a lot of good work. They did a good job of communicating. They were, overall, very, very, very good. I'd give them an A.”

“They were very good, and I would recommend them. They were very thorough, and they explained everything beforehand so there weren't any surprises. It just felt like they were very thorough in measuring the roof. They gave exact measurements and talked me through potential problems or concerns that they had, and when I had any questions, they responded quickly. I would grade them as an A.”

“They patched a hole on my roof in a bad area. Their customer service was very good. They were referred to me. I would give them an A.”

“We had a skylight in the bathroom fixed. I remember that they were here when they were supposed to be here. The job was a difficult job because of the way the roof falls, but it's been fine ever since, so they must have done good work. We probably got three companies to talk to us, and Atlanta Roofing Specialists made the most sense as far as how they were approaching the problem. I would give them an A. It's a very difficult roof to work with, and the leak did not come back, which is great.”

“They were able to come out to our house after a heavy rainstorm and repair the roof. I think they replaced flashing on top of the house. The customer service was great, and they were very nice. I chose them because they answered the phone on Saturday morning. I would give them an A.”

“They did what they said they were going to do, and they fixed the problem. There was some damage around the pipes that come out of the roof, and they had to fix them. The customer service was fine. I know they had to come and do an assessment, and then they came back a couple of weeks later, I think. It was a one-day job. I'll go with an A for them.”

“I thought they did a good job on everything, and they were pretty up front with everything. I thought their customer service was good. The job took a couple of days. I had a referral, and I was more comfortable with them. I would give Atlanta Roofing Specialists an A, I guess. It's only been six months, but the roof still works.”

“They were timely, very professional, and very clean. They partially replaced my gutters and probably 20 percent of a condo roof. The job looked excellent, and their customer service was fantastic. The gentleman who came out to do the estimate was very good and very friendly—A+.”

“Atlanta Roofing Specialists replaced the roof, did the gutters, and put gutter guards on. They cleaned up after themselves, and they did an excellent job. Their customer service was wonderful—all of them were excellent. I'd rate them as an A+.”

“They've been out a couple of times to clean my gutters and fix some loose shingles, and I've been so impressed that I will definitely use them to do my roof. I would give them an A+.”

“Atlanta Roofing Specialists did a new roof, and it's beautiful. I'd say they earned an A grade.”

“Atlanta Roofing Specialists did the roofing, and they were super good. They knew what they were talking about, they knew exactly what to look for, and they explained the whole process, like why their stuff would be guaranteed and why we wouldn't have a problem with it. I felt really, really good about it. Getting them out of Best Pick Reports really helped—that's why I'm going back to that book every time I look for somebody. Atlanta Roofing did an excellent job; I can't say enough good things about them. I'll give them an A++.”

“They did a great job. It was a very big job; it was a bungalow, so it was specialty work, and it was in one of the more expensive neighborhoods in the city. That's why I went with them—I needed someone that knew how to do a high-end home. They followed up on one issue that I had—it was minor, but they came back and did what I asked them to do. I'd give them an A+, the highest rating I have.”

“They put on a new roof for me, and they did an A+ job. They did excellent work, and they did it on time.”

“This house is built with lots of gables, no gutters, and some other things that make it interesting—it has multiple fireplace stacks, and Atlanta Roofing Specialists was able to handle all of that. It's got some modern additions like skylights—all of which make roofing difficult—and they did a good job with all of it. They were on time, and they had an excellent crew. It was A+ work.”

“We've used them probably about three or four times over the years for leak repairs and two reroofs of two different houses. They've done a remarkably good job of showing up when they said they were going to, doing the work that they said they were going to do, and leaving the place cleaner than they found it. I didn't have any problems with customer service at the first house or this one; I thought they were fantastic. We first started using them 15 years ago because of a recommendation from a friend, and after the first time that we used them, their action and behavior earned them follow-up phone calls. I would give them an A—I'm very happy with their work.”

“They were very helpful. They did a new roof and gutters, and we have no regrets at all about using them. They came as soon as possible, and they just did an excellent job. It was A-rate work.”

“They did a roof replacement. They did a great job getting everything scheduled, and the crew was fabulous. They had done some work for my father, and they had done a really good job on that, so he referred me to Atlanta Roofing Specialists. They deserve an A.”

“I ended up using Atlanta Roofing Specialists out of Best Pick Reports, and the work went really well. I had a pretty bad roof, and he did a whole re-roof. The truth is, they really went out of their way. I had sprayed asbestos tile, and he was able to work with it and find an asbestos removal partner. He worked really hard to do a repair option—it was an asbestos roof in a weird situation—and it took a lot to get us straight. He did a good job. I'd call it A work.”

“They replaced my roof and my gutter. I chose them because after I looked at and got prices from a couple of others, they were the only company that was personally recommended by a couple of friends of mine who had used them—they came pretty highly regarded. It was A-grade work.”

“They were wonderful, and I've recommended them to other people. I'd rate them an A.”

“I had a roof put on by Atlanta Roofing Specialists—it's a very small, flat roof that we use as a deck. We had a tar and paper roof that kept leaking, and they came up and put a rubber roof on it. Then, they arranged to have someone come up and put a tile floating deck on top of that. They did a wonderful job with it. I had to call them back for scheduling a number of times, but that was my issue rather than theirs. They get an A from me.”

“They replaced the whole roof. Mark Rutherford, the owner, made sure to cover everything, even when we did have a little problem with the roof itself. He went above and beyond what he needed to do for us, which was really great, especially at that time. Their people were on time, and I would definitely recommend them. I chose them because we had a lot of companies tell us a lot of different things, and we said, 'Make sure to check that everybody is licensed, checked, and insured and that they are saying what they are really saying in giving you a fair quote.' We checked a lot of different people, and based on the description we were given, Mark came out the best. That was one of the main reasons we chose him. It's an A from us.”

“They're great—this is the third time we've used them. They repaired some damage to the roof; we had a limb land on it after a storm, and there was a small leak. They were referred to us by some friends about ten years ago. They're easy to deal with, they came out quick, and they did the work on time like they said they would. The customer service was great. It was just a good experience. I would give them an A+ for sure.”

“There was some rotting wood around a PVC pipe—maybe steam or something was coming out. It was getting around the edges, so they had to take out plywood, put it back, and replace a part of the roof. They put new shingles on in two different places. They came quickly, and they did everything that they could do, so they're who I would call if I needed something again. It was very, very good. I don't see how they could have done any better, so I'd give them an A+.”

“They redid our whole roof and gutters, and they did very good work. The guy who came to give the estimate was knowledgeable and amiable, and we didn't have any problems with them. I chose them because they hand-nail all of their stuff; they don't use the nail guns, and I thought they sounded like a good idea. They're A+.”

“I had a new roof put on. They got the job done in one day, they cleaned up after themselves, and it looks great. I chose them because they were the only ones that went up on the roof and inspected it before they did the job. I would have to give them an A+—they did a great job.”

“They replaced the whole roof, replaced some of the wood, and did gutters. They were here when they were supposed to be here, they did a good job, and they left. It was A+ work.”

“They did a good job with my replacement roof. I chose them because I had used them in the past, and I'd give them an A+.”

“They did the work when they said they would do it, got done with it when they said they would, and did a good job. I think they're A+.”

“They told me what they were doing, did it without making a fuss, and got through with it. I'd give them an A+.”

“They did a roof tune-up—that's what they called it. They did what they said they would do, and it was fine. They cleaned up after themselves, and it was all good. I found out about them when I asked my carpentry people for a referral. They're an A-grade company.”

“They installed my three skylights earlier this year. They showed up on time and did the work. The customer service was great—it's an A from me.”

“I had a whole new roof put on, and they did a very good job. They showed up when they said they were going to show up, they did what they said they were going to do, and they were timely. I would give them an A.”

“They had to replace the flashing around two chimneys, and I had them work on some other little things. The chimneys don't leak anymore. The service itself and the customer service were great, and they came on time; everything was fine. I chose them because I know where they're located. Their work's good work—it's A-rate work.”

“Their service was good. The roof itself is an architectural roof; the color and everything met or exceeded my expectations, and the project went really well. The first day, we kind of had our wires crossed about the day they were actually supposed to come out, but the work was professionally done in a timely manner, and the cleanup was good. Their customer service is good—they're very responsive, they're easy to reach, and their scheduling is good. It's a good company, an A company.”
