What Our Customers Say

“Watertight Roofing Services did a fabulous pain-free job in replacing our damaged roof with beautiful architectural shingles. John Hartsfield was very professional and kept us up-to-date every step of the way. In two days the old shingles were removed, replaced with a new roof and all the debris and nails were cleaned up. Love our new roof.”
