How Do You Know If You Have Roof Damage?

Most roof damage goes undetected because:


You Can't See It

We can’t see every section of our roof from the ground. Split shingles, for example, can only be seen by looking at the backside of the shingles. It can be dangerous to get on the roof. We recommend calling a professional.


You Don't Recognize It

Roof damage isn’t always as obvious as missing shingles. Some damage looks minor or not like damage at all. It may look like debris or staining. A Marathon roof inspector knows how to tell the difference.

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!!”
