3 Ways Extreme Heat Can Damage Your Roof!

South Carolina Residents: It's HOT. As we approach Memorial Day Weekend, we are expected to hit high temperatures that will match or break records dating as far back as the inception of our own company, 1950. 

And it's only May. Let that sink in.

We’ve still got June, July, August and most of September to endure sweltering heat, humidity, and scorching sunshine.

The Best in Quality Roofing? We Nailed It.
At Clyde Nettles, we stand behind our craftsmanship. We believe if you pay for a roof for your home or business, you should be getting top quality – and piece of mind for years to come. Being a locally owned and family operated company since 1950, we take pride in treating our clients like family and provide them the work they deserve. In addition to our 68+ plus years of experience, here's one more way we make sure our roofs are BETTER:

The 2018 Home & Garden Show, sponsored by Clyde Nettles! The weekend was gorgeous – and we enjoyed visiting with everyone that stopped by our tent at the 2018 Home & Garden Show. In addition to giving away a FREE Yeti cooler (see winner below), we also had tons of Clyde Nettles merchandise to hand out, including balloons, mobile phone pop-sockets, cloth bags, pocket knives, pens and more. Plus we were extremely excited to show off our new shingle display, in addition to our new logo and branded image!
Thursday night (opening night for exhibitors), we featured live music from Trent Jeffcoat, who is always a crowd pleaser with his blend of classic rock and country music. On Saturday, the wonderful officers of LIVE PD were at the show, taking pictures with fans and answering all types of “unique” questions (if you haven't seen the show, we highly recommend it!) 
On the Monday after the show, we drew the winner of the Clyde Nettles Yeti Cooler – special congratulations to Dann…
