  • What kind of roofs do you install?
    We do both metal roofing and asphalt shingle roof replacements. We also offer different products within each category, unlike many roofers in the area who can only install one roof type and use one manufacturer exclusively. We offer more because we know there is no such thing as a ‘one-size-fits-all’ replacement roof solution. Our team wants to help you find the right choice for you.
  • How does metal roofing compare with asphalt roofing?

    While metal roofing is a more sizeable investment than an asphalt roof, there’s no denying the many benefits homeowners get to enjoy.

    These advantages include:

    • Longer lifespan
    • Better warranty
    • More energy-efficient
    • Aesthetically pleasing

    Although metal roofs are becoming more popular as homeowners discover the advantages, asphalt roofs are still a good choice as long as you use great products and professional installers.

  • Why were you selected to be the exclusive dealer for Classic Metal Roofing in South Carolina?

    Classic Metal Roofing has built a reputation as the superior metal roofing manufacturer in the country. But no matter how good a product is, it must be installed correctly. And metal roof installation is not something that typical roofing companies can do.

    Because we are so experienced and have invested in special training for our installers, we are part of the very small percentage of roofers in Columbia, Charleston, and Greenville that have expertise in metal roofing. Classic Metal Roofing selected us as their exclusive partner in South Carolina because of our specialized installation expertise and our long-term stability as a company.

  • What kind of warranty will I get?
    The specifics of your warranty will vary depending on what kind of replacement roof you choose. We promise to be completely transparent about your warranty and to always provide the details to you in writing. We always install products from proven and reputable manufacturers that stand behind their products. For more information on warranties, please visit our Warranty page.
  • Will you have the lowest price?

    Let’s put it this way: You can always find someone willing to bid lower if you that’s what you want. There are, however, big problems that come with "bottom-of-the-barrel" pricing. First of all, something important will be sacrificed. Inferior materials, temporary labor, and rushed work are all likely. This means the roof can—and will—fail before it should.

    The other problem is that roofers who offer unrealistically cheap prices are also the ones who usually go out of business the quickest. They won’t be there when there’s a problem. We take a different approach. We always focus on what will be the best overall value for you, instead of only concentrating on the cheapest upfront price. We believe in selling the best roofs to Columbia homeowners for reasonable, fair prices.

  • I just want a quote—do I have to sit through a sales presentation?
    We do not use high-pressure sales tactics, and we don’t have long-winded sales presentations. Our consultation and quote process is a relaxed conversation with you. We are there to do a true needs assessment and give you our best recommendations. No pressure and no games.
  • Can you just repair my roof instead of replacing it?
    Yes, we do repairs! Believe it or not, this makes us different from many Columbia roofing companies who refuse to do repairs because it is not as profitable as roof replacement. As to whether your roof can be repaired instead of replaced, we can’t say until we see it, but you can rest assured we’ll give you a straightforward assessment based on our observations of the age and condition of the roof.
  • Do you offer payment plans?
    Yes, we do. We understand that investing in a new roof can be a strain if you have to pay for it all at once. We’re happy to help get you a monthly payment plan that fits comfortably in your budget.
