2017 was a busy and exciting year for Seawright Roofing. We accomplished a lot, and we made some changes. For the entirety of 2017 and beyond, our goal is to provide the best roofing and storm damage repairs for the residents of Columbia and the Midlands. Our accomplishments in 2017 have laid a great foundation for 2018 as we strive for continual improvement and growth. Here are our highlights from 2017.
In April 2017, Seawright Roofing moved its office from Devine Street to 647 Bluff Road, near the fairgrounds. Our new location is much bigger to better accommodate our vehicles and inventory, but even more exciting is the addition of a showroom full of Owens Corning demo products and literature. In our showroom you can see, touch and feel our quality Owens Corning products BEFORE we install them on your roof and home. Visits to our showroom are by appointment only so please contact us if you’re in the market for a new roof.
In 2017, Seawright Roofing was designated a Preferred Owens Corning Contractor. Not all roofers can obtain this designation. It requires a clean credit and background check, being in business for over 3 years under the same name, carrying over $1million in general liability and workers comp coverage, and demonstrating a high standard in craftsmanship. Our preferred contractors status now allows us to offer extended warranties on all Owens Corning products and installations, meaning you can have even more confidence in the work that Seawright Roofing performs and the products that we offer.
Throughout the years, our satisfied residential customers have asked us to bid and work on smaller commercial projects. In 2017 we took the step to obtain our commercial roofing license with the state of South Carolina. This now allows us to service commercial roofs and shingles and better serve our customers. We look forward to doing more commercial projects in 2018!
Last year we really took a look at our business’s and crews’ strengths and decided to shift our focus to roofing and storm damage only. Our crews are virtual roofing machines and we want to make sure we have them working at their highest capacity. Seawright Roofing still offers siding and windows to our roofing customers, but we no longer search for siding or windows stand-alone projects. If your roof has been damaged by storms, fallen trees, or it’s just time for a new roof, give us a call!
We are honored to have won Columbia Metropolitan Magazine’s Best of Columbia category for Best Roofing Company in 2018! Thank you to all of our customers, friends, and family who voted – we look forward to living up to these high expectations and continuing to please our customers. See a full list of winners here.
Thanks again to all of our customers who have made 2017 successful for Seawright Roofing. We’re kicking off 2018 with a bang! Come see us at the Columbia Home Building & Remodeling Expo, January 12-14, and the Carolina Classic Home & Gardening Show, March 9-11, 2018.
