Longview Voters Choose Stonewater As “Best Of East Texas”

The votes are in, and Longview News-Journal readers selected Stonewater Roofing as Best Roofing Company in the newspaper’s annual “Best of East Texas” competition. This marks the 30th year for the honor and the first time that Stonewater has taken the top prize.

The “Best of East Texas” competition recognizes local businesses across all industries including retail, dining, and home services. In order to even be considered for the contest, companies had to first be recommended by their customers during a month-long nomination phase. Then, the top three companies in each industry were put into another month-long vote. Winners were chosen for each category by the newspaper’s readers.

Best Of East Texas 2022

“It was an honor just to be nominated, and everyone at Stonewater is extremely grateful to now win,” stated COO and co-owner Jacob Law. “We certainly owe this award to our customers, both past and present, who cared enough to make their voices heard. It speaks to the quality of our work and the relationships that we build, that people actually want to spread the word.”

“We do things the right way,” continued Law. “We’re honest. We’re reliable. Our customers really want to recommend us to their friends and strangers alike.” In fact, Stonewater Roofing has more than 600 positive reviews across their locations in Longview, Tyler, and Bedford.

So, if you need someone to help with your roof, it makes sense to choose the one that your neighbors love — the only one that has been voted “Best of East Texas.” Contact the local experts at Stonewater Roofing for a free damage assessment, or request a free energy assessment to find out how you can save money by switching to solar.

Stonewater Receives GAF President’s Club Honor For 4th Year

Stonewater Roofing is proud to have won the GAF President’s Club honor for the fourth straight year. This is the highest award that a GAF contractor can receive and is reserved for only the best roofing companies in the industry. In fact, just 2 percent of all roofing contractors in the country are able to qualify.

GAF is the largest manufacturer of residential and commercial roofing materials in North America.

The road to the President’s Club begins with the GAF Master Elite program. To earn this distinction, companies must be licensed and insured, must have at least seven years of experience in the roofing industry, must remain committed to continuous training, and must have an exemplary customer satisfaction rating.

Upon reaching GAF Master Elite status, the President’s Club looks for contractors who have a history of offering their customers the very best service, reliability, and performance within the roofing industry. These are areas where Stonewater Roofing excels. Based on reviews, our customers agree.

“We know that we’re among the best of the best when it comes to providing roofing services,” said Stonewater Roofing founder and CEO Roland Browne. “We love it when our customers leave reviews online that tell us that, but we love it just as much when industry experts like GAF say it as well.”

Recognitions like GAF President’s Club are important for home and business owners who may find themselves overwhelmed by the prospect of getting a new roofing system, Browne added. “There are a lot of roofing companies out there. We know that,” he said. “But when you have someone like GAF helping identify which ones are trustworthy, which ones are reliable, which ones will do the best job, it really helps to simplify the process and put the property owner’s mind at ease.”

“When you work with a GAF President’s Club member like Stonewater Roofing,” Browne concluded, “you can feel confident that everything’s going to turn out great.”

#ClearTheList Returns To Help Teachers From Longview To DFW

The new school year has arrived, but Stonewater Roofing first helped nine lucky teachers get the supplies they needed for their classrooms. It was part of the East Texas company’s annual #ClearTheList campaign, a push to assist underpaid educators by fulfilling their Amazon wishlists.

This was Stonewater Roofing’s third year helping out teachers. It was also the company’s largest school supply drop ever, hand-delivering books, games, pens, stickers and much more. Instructors ranged from elementary to high school and stretched from the DFW area to Longview. Winners were chosen randomly, and this year just so happened to include two ladies from Owens Elementary School in Tyler.

  • Bonnie Carney, Holiday Heights Elementary School in North Richland Hills
  • Regina Cooper Ahn, Bridgemark Center For Learning in Tyler
  • Nicole Dickerson, Stanton-Smith Elementary School in Whitehouse
  • Tracy Dingler, Bullard Elementary School in Bullard
  • Sarah Galland, Velma Penny Elementary School in Lindale
  • Stephanie Pearce, Pine Tree Primary School in Longview
  • Amy Touchstone, Longview High School in Longview
  • Risa Wasik, Owens Elementary School in Tyler
  • Kayla Whiddon, Owens Elementary School in Tyler

The #ClearTheList movement started as a social media phenomenon. School districts simply cannot afford to buy all of the supplies needed for their classrooms. So, many educators started relying on the kindness of online strangers, posting their wishlists and sharing the registries on social media with the #ClearTheList hashtag. The campaign soon turned into a viral sensation.

“I’ve already spent a lot of money on my classroom, and there’s always more things to buy,” explained Dickerson as she learned that her list would be cleared. “There’s some things on there that we use every single day, like the paper and the markers, the things that get used up and we have to constantly buy.”

“I put so much into my classroom,” added Galland. “Not just money, but time and energy and just my whole heart.”

“If you teach with your heart first, more than anything, they’re going to remember that,” stated Touchstone about her Longview high schoolers. She said that many come from impoverished environments, and they deserve to have the same opportunities found elsewhere. “I feel like God put me in this position, at this school, for right now.”

Employees from Stonewater Roofing brought the overstuffed boxes of school supplies to the teachers before the new school year began. “We have come through probably the hardest year of our teaching careers,” said Carney, referencing the challenges that came about due to the COVID-19 pandemic. “This last group of kids made it, and I’m so looking forward to this new group of kids.”

Don’t Let Hidden Hail Damage Ruin Your Property’s Roof

You might think that your roof looks fine, but it could be the victim of hidden hail damage. After all, more than 30 severe storms dropped one-inch hail or larger across DFW and East Texas, and that’s just since the beginning of this year. This is large enough to cause some serious roofing problems, and your property likely got hit.

“Oftentimes, you can’t see damage from the ground,” explained Stonewater Roofing senior sales representative Anayo Onyi, “and if you do see anything that looks like a disturbance, you can’t really identify it without being up on the roof.” So, there is only one sure way to make sure that hidden hail damage doesn’t become a major problem.

“Your next step is to have a qualified professional — Stonewater Roofing — come up and inspect the damage for you,” Onyi said.

Stonewater Roofing’s experts provide a complete health check of your property. “We look for primary and collateral damage. So, primary damage would be to the shingles themselves. Collateral damage is to soft metals, window screens, gutters and things like that,” Onyi said. “All that kind of just helps to paint a picture of what actually occurred and the extent of the damage.”

Inspecting your roof yourself is not recommended. First, you are likely not trained in how to spot damage. But most importantly, it can be very dangerous if you were to slip and fall. “It’s kind of a waste of time, unnecessary risk,” Onyi stated. “It’s best to have somebody that does that day in, day out come and give you a professional inspection.”

In just 15 minutes, you get the peace of mind that comes with knowing the status of your roof, and you’ll know what the next step is to staying protected. “If you don’t have any storm damage, great,” Onyi added. “But if there’s a potential issue that might cause a leak later down the line, then I’m going to point that out to you.”

Warranty Options Can Extend The Life Of Your New Roof

Replacing your roof is an important purchase, so it’s equally important that you get an outstanding warranty to ensure that you stay protected for many years into the future. While the standard warranties that come with our GAF roofing products are good, there are even better options available to customers, ones that can help extend the life of your new roof.

Stonewater Roofing gladly offers the System Plus, Silver Pledge and Golden Pledge warranties. “They’re just enhanced warranties on top of the ones that we already have, that you already get,” explained Longview office manager Kelli Johnson. Each one can be transferred a single time with no fee.

“All three of them cover material defects for 50 years,” Johnson continued. The basic shingle and accessory warranty only covers materials for 10 years. That’s a huge difference in how much peace of mind you get from your newly installed roof, even from just upgrading to System Plus.

However, the System Plus warranty, like the standard one, does not cover any workmanship defects. “The Silver Pledge warranty covers workmanship defects for 10 years,” Johnson added, “and the Golden Pledge warranty covers workmanship defects for 25 years.”

The Golden Pledge plan also adds an additional one-year labor warranty through Stonewater Roofing. Combined, this makes the Golden Pledge warranty an amazing option for customers. “It’s just an all-around really good warranty,” said Johnson.

Few roofing companies can keep you this protected. “We can actually offer these warranties through Stonewater Roofing because we are Master Elite through GAF,” Johnson noted. “There’s only two percent of roofing companies in the United States that are able to offer these warranties.”

That is just one great reason to trust Stonewater Roofing with your roofing needs. Schedule a free roof damage assessment today!
