How it all began

Brother and Sister team

Marathon = "Mar" and John

Like so many great things, Marathon Roofing began as a result of bad news. Siblings, Mary and Johnathon Hakes, were laid off from their jobs in the roofing industry when the company they worked for downsized.  John had always planned to start his own company so he went for it.  He asked his great friend and fellow roofer, Ryan Mohr, to join him and Marathon Roofing was born.

Of course, we cannot tell our story without including Savannah, John’s partner in all things. She may not work for the company but without her unending faith in Johnathon and support of his dreams, we wouldn’t be here.   

The team is made up of great people who care about their customers. Honesty, integrity, hard-work, love (yes, love) and doing what you say you’re going to do are the foundations on which this business is built.

"The Marathon way: Customer service, customer service, care, love, attention and doing what you say you're going to do!"

What Our customers say

Kevin F. ★★★★★
“We were very happy with Marathon, and John in particular. He worked tirelessly with our insurance coverage and ended up getting us a complete roof replacement even though our insurance company only wanted to cover half. The new roof is beautiful and seems to be holding up to the recent winds and rain very well.”
Ward M. ★★★★★
“I think this is the best contractor I have encountered in 8 years in the area. John runs an exceptionally responsive and professional operation.”
Linda W. ★★★★★
“We used Marathon Roofing to replace our roof in Leland and inspect and repair our roof at Carolina Beach. This is the best customer service we have experienced since we moved here in 2007. I would highly recommend Johnathan Hakes and Marathon Roofing!!”
Yelena & Bryan ★★★★★
“We would like to express our appreciation to John, with Marathon Roofing, for his fast response and a job well done on our chimney, which was damaged by strong winds. We would recommend him to anybody who need a quality job, or help with insurance clam, as Marathon is very reliable and knowledgeable company. We couldn’t have asked for better service and would definitely use this company again in the future.”
