About TarHeel

Who Are We?

TarHeel was founded in 1981 and has been providing clients with roofing and waterproofing services for over 37 years.

We are industry leaders in most segments of the commercial markets, including office centers, retail complexes/shopping centers, industrial and manufacturing facilities, hospitality/resorts, distribution/warehousing, medical/hospitals and private education facilities.

Since our inception in St. Petersburg, Florida as a family business our company has established itself as one of the most respected, innovative and reliable roofing and waterproofing companies in the United States.

Still headquartered in St. Petersburg (Tampa Bay), Florida, we perform work nationally throughout the United States and the Caribbean, serving national clients as well as individual owners. Our large portfolio of satisfied clients also includes work performed overseas for the Department of Defense.

We have grown to be one of the largest roofing and waterproofing contractors in the Southeast United States.

What Value Do We Provide?

Our many years of experience, having installed over 20 million sq. ft. of warrantable systems throughout the United States, provides us with an extensive knowledge base.

Utilizing our depth of experience we are able to investigate multiple options and scenarios, ultimately providing solutions that are often less costly than boiler plate options.

Selecting and utilizing the appropriate materials and providing employees with the proper skill set and knowledge ensures that are clients are receiving the top quality finished product that they expected and that we promised.

Our processes and best of class efficiencies typically allow us to provide our clients with solutions that work at lower costs than they have received from others.

Time and time again our clients have saved substantial amounts of money, seeing first-hand the value that we bring to their projects. 

What Do We Do?

From our beginnings as roofing and waterproofing contractors we have expanded our range of services.

Fast forward 37 years and we now offer general construction services, building envelope services, cladding/wall systems, damp proofing, exterior renovations, historical renovations, lightning protection and sheet metal.

As a licensed general contractor we are often able to view projects from a broader perspective and incorporate other trades and disciplines into our scope of work.

This comprehensive approach often benefits our clients by providing them with a more cost effective and single sourced solution.

How Do We Do It?

Our approach to each project is systematic and innovative.

We take the time needed and apply all of the resources required to fully understand and evaluate the problems or conditions that must be addressed.

We then investigate and research the available options to address these conditions, analyzing each option to assess the impact it may have on the project.

Once the problems and all possible solutions are identified we then evaluate and determine the solution that provides the best overall value for the client.

Our experience and first-hand knowledge of most manufacturers products, specifications and details allow us to pick and choose those that provide the most value while still providing a system that will comply with the criteria for issuance of the manufacturer’s warranty and fully satisfy our client’s needs.   

Lastly, our processes allow us to capture efficiencies on both the material and labor sides, benefiting the bottom line for our clients.

What Do Our Clients Think About Us?

The vast majority of our work is through repeat business and referrals. This means we must ensure that each and every one our clients are thoroughly satisfied with our performance and the value that we provide as it is essential for the continued success of our company.
