At Mays Contracting, we take great pride in the level of education and knowledge we have obtained through roofing industry training and involvement, manufacturer certification training, and continuing education through our many manufacturers. We believe that the only ethical and proper way to specify and install any roof for any homeowner is to have the appropriate training, skills, and factory trained Project Managers overseeing the entire installation. We clearly understand that a roof system is an intricate process of correct fastening, detailed flashing work, calculated and designed ventilation, proper sealants and adhesives, and following manufacturer installation specifications. Our employees are covered by both Worker’s Compensation and General Liability insurance so you as a residential (homeowner) customer can feel properly protected while our crew is on the job site. We believe by being efficiently staffed in all areas, we can provide the highest level of service before, during, and after the sale.

Knowing that the roofing industry is full of “Fly-by-night” contractors, we feel it is especially important that you see our company up close and meet the people you will be entrusting to work on your most valuable asset – YOUR HOME.

We wanted to share our experience after a hail storm (2014) caused a great deal of damage to our home. We had to replace the roof on our home, the siding, and the gutters. We chose to replace all windows and both doors. We were extremely pleased with Mays Contracting! Phillip was the contractor that we dealt with. He was very thorough and responded to all questions in a timely manner. His crew was exceptional. Chris and his guys were extremely willing to ensure our satisfaction with all work. We were extremely pleased with all of their work and would highly recommend this company, contractor, and crew to anyone!!!

Thanks to all of them for working on our home as if it were their own home!

Description Of Work: Asked for a quote to replace my roof, it's over 25 years old and storms have torn off shingles.

They came out and went up on the roof and ascessed the damage. Just to get us by they had some left over spare shingles on their truck and they patched the worst places to prevent water damage. That goes above and beyond the call of duty in my opinion!
They were polite, clean and very professional. The estimate was extremely reasonable, but, times being what they are, I am having to wait before having them do the work as their quote, while good, was for more than I could afford.
Once I have the money, I wont hesitate to do business with them, and plan on having it done when my tax refund comes in.

Mays Roofing provided an estimate for a reroof on our home in Spartanburg. The gentlemen who came was punctual, kind, professional and extremely knowledgeable. He quickly and pleasantly answered every question I had, and believe me I had a lot of questions while he was at our home and later by telephone after he left. It was a very difficult decision todetermine which roofe. In the end we elected to use the other contractor because they used shingles that we liked from another company that Mays did not use. However, I firmly believe that the shigles Mays uses are an excellent product and I believe that Mays would be an excellent choice for a reroof job.

Description Of Work:

We are in a 2400 sq ft two story patio home. We had a top quality roof installed. The upgrade from 25 year to 50 year was quite reasonable. The guarantee can be passed on to the next owner.

They put a dumpster in the front driveway ( It was not left there over night! ) and covered all shrubbery with tarps.They did run out of shingles for a portion of the garage and had to come back to finish the job, but it was done quickly and as they promised.

The clean-up was done professionally. I still find a few nails, but I was warned that they would not be able to get all them. The foreman came back after the job was finished and found about two pocket-fulls after the crew did an initial cleanup. The only damage was to the support for a stake for a solar light for the garden.

The small roof to the tool shed was not covered in the original bidby my oversight. They needed some extra shingles for that and it took several days to get to and finish that job, but I agreed to let them do it after other jobs in the area so that they could save gas and travel expenses. They volunteered to finish the job on the Sunday AM, but I suggested that they take their day off and do it later at their convenience.

The crew was polite and no one fell off the roof!

Several roofs have been recovered in our neighborhood. I think May's crew would stand up to any of the others for workmanship and professionalism.

Description Of Work:

This company was slightly higher than some estimates, but not the highest. We chose them due to the extras that they do. The use a "starter" edge and a heavier underlayment than most companies. They are also a certainteed master installer. By being this and doing the extras. They are able to offer a 50 year transferable warranty on architectural shingles. This is the main reason we chose them. After they removed all the old shingles, they found my plywood under the shingles was bad. I looked at it and had to agree. This unfortunatly added $4000 to my cost. However the company came when they said they would, and still finished in two days even with the extra work. They did an excellant job cleaning up and the work is top notch.
