I have used JD Candler for almost 30 years, going back to when I was responsible for The Summit Mall. Their RoofLink Data Management System has helped me manage my budget projections and stay in informed on the realistic conditions on my three-plant campus. Several winters ago, we had overloaded roofs and had to have them out for some serious snow and Ice removal, their service department does a great job keeping us dry even after hours.
Ward Church has relied on JD Candler for over 10 years now. After they left a business card at our reception desk, we called the cell phone at 9am early the following week with a problem, and they had a service crew on site in less than four hours and solved the problem. Our previous commercial roofer, who was some distance away, would eventually show up, but then would have to leave to get another ladder or material and come back another time. They never took the time to pay attention to proper safety provisions, which you did, including recommending additional safety enhancements to our roofs and structures.
Using Candler’s RoofLink inspection feature was one of the best things we ever did to manage our facility roof. The reporting website is fast, easy and allow me to report a problem and receive timely reporting on the status of the repairs. The accuracy of the budgeting and setting up the priority of the roofs that need emergency or remedial repair has helped me give accurate information to our Budget Committee. JD Candler is always competitive on jobs that need multiple bids. I don’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone.

We were referred to JD Candler over 10 years ago. Our facilities have several additions resulting in older and newer sections with different roofs types including old-style Spanish tile, metal roofs, and different manufactured flat roofs. JD Candler introduced us to the RoofLink Data Management System’s inspection feature, which has allowed us to get all of our roofs under control through replacement or preventive maintenance. We are able to budget wisely for year to year maintenance along with longer range roofing projects. Over time they installed metal access ladders to our multi-level roof areas, eliminating the need for dangerous loose ladders laying on the roofs. We consider JD Candler as our partner because they have given us good, practical advice and it has paid off.
As facility director for 37 years, working for both Kmart and Sears in the Midwest, I have dealt with a number of national and local roofing contractors. The JD Candler team is made up of top shelve people, the service is great and the response time is amazing. Melisa and Aaron provide great customer communication, I couldn’t ask for better service. JD Candler recently finished a 130,000 square foot roofing project in Hamtramck that was complicated and challenging, and the job came out fantastic. Our final walk thru inspection showed a nice tight roof and sheet metal application, both Dan, Brad and the two crews did a fantastic job. I couldn’t ask for anything better than JD Candler commercial Roofing.
