When Watkins Construction and Roofing completes a job, the Fortune 500 company Owens Corning gives the work its seal of approval—which comes with a 50-year warranty.
The 50-year commitment begins with the company’s seven-step process, which encompasses everything from an initial free estimate to a final inspection by a project manager once the job is complete.

“During the seven-step process, I make sure everyone facilitates their portion (of the process),” owner and operator Michael Dier said. “Throughout the years, I’ve done just about everything, but now that I’m in a leadership position, I monitor quality and invest in people, working with their leadership qualities.”

Watkins offers roof repair and replacement services, along with cosmetic improvement options, such as skylights, gutters and siding.

For customers who take advantage of Watkins’ full array of services, a live operator is available for online assistance 24/7, along with on-site supervision during construction activity.

Given that many Jacksonians live in apartment-style housing and therefore do not make such home-improvement choices themselves, the company has long since learned to work closely with landlords and building managers to provide commercial roofing services and to keep existing roofs safe by repairing damage, checking vents and inspecting for molds and mildews.

The company also provides an elaborate blog for its clients, which walks customers through home-renovation decisions such as shingle selections and the ideal timing of roof replacements. Watkins even offers a checklist to help customers identify a suitable contractor for their home-improvement projects. —Taylor McKay Hathorn
