Emergency Tarping

Unpredictable Weather

With the weather being unpredictable, it is helpful to have a plan in place when an emergency strikes your roof. Strong winds, storms, and hail may cause severe damage to your roof. When you are hit with a weather-related disaster, the first step is to call a trusted local roofing company that is available 24/7.

JACO Contracting Solutions is your number one choice for all your roofing needs. We offer a wide variety of roofing materials and colors to compliment your home’s architectural design and age.  


Many of the older neighborhoods in and around Atlanta are a mixture of historical homes. For example, many neighborhoods like Grant Park, East Atlanta Village and Virginia Highlands are made up of beautifully restored historical homes including bungalows, shotguns and Victorians (to name a few) that are well over a century old. Covington where JACO is located, has many beautiful historical homes around the Square. Many owners of historic homes prefer to keep their roofs as close to the original appearance as possible, however, many roofing materials used a century ago are no longer available.        


Mid-century modern homes were built between the 1930’s and 1960’s.  There are many neighborhoods in and around Atlanta that contain these homes known for their clean lines and flatter roofs. Neighborhoods such as Collier Hills, Sandy Springs and Druid Hills in Decatur have many unique homes built during this era. However, some mid-century modern homes have flat roofs that are expensive to duplicate and others may no longer meet building codes. JACO can help you choose a roofing material that suits the aesthetics of your home. Metal and shingle roofs work well on some mid-century designs.       


The suburbs of Atlanta, such as Conyers, Lawrenceville and Marietta include many subdivisions built between the 1970’s and now that have what are sometimes referred to as “cookie-cutter” homes.  Most of these types of homes were affordable to middle-class families and often built using inexpensive 3 tab shingle roofing. JACO Contracting is an award-winning supplier of Owens-Corning shingles.  To give your home a more expensive appearance and better curb appeal, you may consider dimensional asphalt shingles or luxury asphalt shingles, rather than 3 tab shingles.  JACO can help you choose the best color shingles to complement your home’s paint pallet and help increase your home’s value.     

Regardless of the architectural design of your home, JACO has you covered with our wide selection of shingles, metal roofing, and specialty roofing to compliment every home.   Call JACO Contracting at (770) 385-5788 or visit our showroom today! 

Consider JACO for Your Next Project

At JACO, we understand the challenges that come with managing a large residential complex or commercial property. When it comes to projects, you are charged with getting the best bang for the buck. A wrong decision could negatively impact a large number of people and that is especially true when there is construction to be done.  When it comes to choosing the right contractor, there are hundreds vying for an opportunity to get your  business.  How do you choose?  It’s simple – you pay attention to the things that matter:       

Trusted Reputation.  

First and foremost, you should consider the reputation of the contractor.  JACO is a family-owned corporation that has operated in Georgia under the same name for 10 years.  Not many contractors can make that claim!  Indeed, many are fly-by-night companies that do shoddy work or take your money without doing any work.  They then close and reopen under a new name when they get too many complaints. At JACO, quality and service are our priorities and it shows!   

Quality Materials.

JACO uses only top quality building and roofing materials backed by the best manufacturer warranties in the business. For most residential applications, we offer a large selection of Owens-Corning roofing materials.  In business for over 66 years, Owens-Corning has an impeccable reputation as one of the best manufacturers of roofing shingle.  We also offer commercial roofing choices such as metal roofs, prefabricated roofs, asphalt roofs and specialty roofs at prices that will work with your budget.  

Award Winning.  

JACO holds Owens-Corning’s top-tier designation as a “Platinum Preferred Contractor.” A Platinum Preferred Contractor is one whose installations are inspected by Owens Corning and is of the highest quality. As a result, when JACO installs an Owens-Corning roof system, it can extend Owens-Corning’s life-time warranty on workmanship and materials.  In addition, JACO is proud to be a BBB Accredited Business, a CRD Preferred Contractor and HAAG Certified Inspector.

Experienced.  With over 10 years in the construction and roofing business, we have the expertise necessary to get the job done right and on time!  Indeed, the JACO family includes the most qualified employees in the business when it comes to knowledge, workmanship and customer service.   We did not earn our reputation as a top contractor by cutting corners or doing sub-par work. Only the very best is good enough for us!  

Budget Friendly without Compromising Quality. 

We do not believe that anyone should have to compromise quality workmanship in order to get a fair price. JACO’s delivers top quality work at a competitive price.    

We Make it Easy.  

If your project is covered by insurance, JACO can help make things easy when we work with your insurance company from start to finish to get all the money necessary to cover all of the work required. You should never be left with any out-of-pocket costs besides your deductible.  Our design team is available to help you choose from our large selection of beautiful colors and materials to help increase the curb appeal of your project, which can help increase the value of your complex.    

Customer Service. 

Our employees – from the owners to the installers – are respectful and professional at all times.  We show up on time with a friendly attitude and a smile, and if we are held up for any reason, we do our best to let you know.  Our employees are experienced and knowledgeable, so when you ask a question, you will get an answer.  Your satisfaction is our number one goal.  

Licensed and Insured.  

You can have peace of mind knowing that JACO is a licensed contractor in the State of Georgia.  Please beware that there is no licensing requirement in Georgia for roofers; therefore, there are many who are unethical and inexperienced.  Further, JACO carries adequate commercial liability insurance that would cover any negligence.  

Whether you have a construction project or a roofing project, JACO has the characteristics of a hallmark company you can trust. With years of experience, an exceptional reputation and competitive prices, we are the ONE to call for an estimate on your next project.  



A New Roof Can Save You Money in the Long-run

A New Roof Can Save You Money in the Long-run

Installing a new roof on your home can be an expensive investment.  However, it is an investment worth making. There are few things more important than your home’s structural integrity and the safety and security of your family. 

We understand that investing in a new roof can be costly, but the good news is that your new roof can actually help you save money in the long run.  

Heating and Cooling Bills

A new roof can help save you money on your heating and cooling costs by making your home more energy-efficient. Often, older roofs are less efficient because they were built using outdated materials with low solar reflectance, low emittance, and which can break down over time.  Roof color, energy rating, and type of material used all affect the efficiency of your roof. To learn more about improving your home’s energy efficiency, contact a JACO consultant today.    

Increase Home Value

A new roof may also help increase your home’s value.  If you want to make a good first impression with potential buyers, a new roof is the way to do it.  A home that has a damaged roof will likely scare away buyers. Indeed, sellers may be forced to reduce the sales price of their home when the roof is old or in poor condition. The condition of a roof is one of the top things that buyers consider when purchasing a home.  Often, buyers are more inclined to pay more for a home with a new roof than pay less for a home with a roof that needs to be replaced. 

Damages Savings

Third, a new roof offers better protection from damage.  The newer, high tech roofing materials available now can help keep your family and your home safe with the improved overall durability of your home.  Older roofs with loose shingles, holes, and rotting wood are more susceptible to storm, tree and other damage.

Cheaper to Maintain

Fourth, a new roof costs less to repair and maintain.  Indeed, often it is difficult to find roofing materials to match older roofs.  Repairs can be noticeable and reduce the curb appeal for your home.  Because the older materials are scarce, they may be more expensive.

Factors that Impact the Cost of a New Roof

Factors that Impact the Cost of a New Roof

Do you need a new roof, but think it’s unaffordable?  You might be surprised to learn that the cost is lower than you think!  Every roof is different.  The replacement cost of your roof will depend on several factors:  

Roof Size

Roof size is a huge factor in pricing. Generally speaking, the bigger your home, the bigger your roof and the bigger your roof, the more materials, and labor will be required. When determining the square footage of your roof, in addition to all covered living spaces, you must also include areas such as overhangs, covered walkways, and entryways.  If you have an outbuilding that matches your home, you may wish to re-roof that as well, for added curb appeal.

Slope and Shape of Roof

Second, your roof slope and shape play important roles in determining the cost of a new roof.  The more sloped the roof, the more materials required.  In addition, a steep roof requires the use of additional safety equipment, which may increase the cost.  Complex designs of a roof generally increase the work required to repair or replace them  Examples of complex designs are roofs with multiple dormers, steep slants, gables, and/or valleys.    

Type of Roofing Material

Roofing materials vary in price.  For example,  architectural shingles are more costly than three-tab shingles and synthetic underlayment is more expensive than felt.  Material, performance, quality, warranty, and style all impact the cost.  In addition, replacement of old or worn parts such as decking, underlayment, vents, or flashing often affects the cost of the roof.      

Extent of Repairs

The condition of your existing roof may impact the cost of replacement.  If your existing roof leaks or has mold or damage to the underlying decking, the cost may increase due to additional repairs/replacement to such damage, since extra labor and materials would likely be needed.  The more damage, the higher the cost.
