Your Local Roofing Professional in Athens, GA
"It seems like I have been in the construction industry from the first day I could walk." I have worked in every facet of the building/construction industry. After working around other companies in the field and seeing a lot of installation that I felt was lacking in quality I decided to enter this industry. I set out to work for a company who valued the customer and quality practices. I found a home in the ever expanding roofing industry with Barrelle Roofing. At Barrelle Roofing we continue to train and learn new technologies and practices every day. We attend multiple conferences, bring in trainers, study updated manuals, and stay up to date on ever changing insurance practices. On top of company training I further my education by continuing to study new materials every day. I myself am a Georgia Licensed General Contractor as well as a Certified Owens Corning roofing expert. I have personally overseen the completion of hundreds of high quality roofs during my time at Barrelle Roofing. I have also personally overseen many complex roofing projects such as apartment complexes and town home communities that require much more planning. - David Mathis
Knowledge is Power
Your roof is a system of components that keeps your largest investment dry and protected.
I make sure every roof is a completed system with proper components. A residential roofing system takes a lot of steps to complete properly. Most people have seen a quick over view of what replacing a roof looks like. However most people do not know the specific details to look for to make sure it is correctly done. That is where a roofing expert such as myself comes in. Common mistakes untrained and/or unethical roofing companies make:
- Install shingles over a 1x decking house where gaps exceed 1/4in in spacing.
- Do not install drip edge on the home.
- Install drip edge on the rakes of the home under the roofing felt.
- Do not remove the existing felt and reuse.
- Suggest your home can sustain multiple layer of shingles
- Cut three tab shingles for hip and ridge on architectural shingle installs.
- Use static vent in conjunction with ridge vent on the same slope of the home.
- Nail to high or to low on the shingle.
These are just a few of the mistakes or misleading that companies make in regards to installing a new system on your home. All of these are specified in the manufacture specifications for installation and/or the International Residential Code.

When I needed gutters installed David with Barrelle Roofing was prompt in coming and examining my house to determine what was needed. David was honest in his recommendations and I had no hesitation in hiring his crew to do the installation. They had a cancellation and was able to get my house completed earlier than expected. The gutters look great and most importantly did not leak.
Months later my roof developed a leak during a heavy storm. David was quick to come and assess the situation. He was able to repair the roof promptly and inspected the entire roof while he was on the roof. While there was some expected wear and my roof will need replacement in a year or two, David did not use any high-pressure sales tactic to try and convince me to replace the roof immediately. That honesty is not found in all contractors but David and the guys at Barrelle are top notch.

Prompt, professional and a pleasure to work with.
A home inspector identified some issues with the roof on a house that we were trying to sell. After our first direct contact with our insurance company, we were told that they would not cover the necessary repairs. But, after we got David Mathis with Barrelle Roofing to take a look at the roof, he was able to contact our insurance company and show them why the damage was, in fact, covered under our policy.
We had a new roof on the house before we knew it and our insurance company covered the vast majority of the cost. I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs any type of roofing work done. Thanks, David!
