In his spare time, Sam enjoys spending time with his wonderful wife and beautiful children. He is an avid nature enthusiast. He enjoys taking the boat on the water, fishing, hunting, camping, and all things football.

    I have worked with Sam Smith multiple times. He came highly recommended and was able to repair a leak around my chimney that other roofers could not seem to get right. As a realtor I refer clients to Sam often. I know he will do a great job at a fair price.

    We had a hard time getting your competitors to come out and give us a bid estimate. The one company that did submit gave us an estimate from goggle earth, sent the estimate through the mail and we thought it was considerably over priced.
