About Us

Since 1985, Callis Roofing has been a small family owned business in Nashville, TN now including three generations who take pride in doing the work themselves and ensuring that you and your roof are provided with the very best care possible

The Beginnings

 

Callis Roofing was established by Robert Callis Sr. in 1985. With a background in landscaping since the 60’s, Bob decided to take a leap and venture into growing a new business. After dedicating himself to learning and researching the trade, it didn’t take long for Bob to get started with his trustworthy, dependable and customer satisfactory reputation. Founding his business on word of mouth, Bob set the Callis Roofing template for advertising and continued to earn jobs and generate company growth through satisfied customers who gave referrals to their neighbors, sometimes creating an entire street of roofing orders. Bob’s wife, Brenda took the reigns of handling the financial affairs and scheduling estimates and has essentially been the backbone of Callis Roofing as the secretary, playing a substantial role in their success. 

The Sons

​

In 2002, Callis Roofing became R.H. Callis & Sons, Inc. because Bob and Brenda’s three sons who had achieved a strong work ethic, good craftsmanship and learned the roofing trade at an early age from their father had grown up and decided to join the family business. Bob and Brenda’s oldest son, Bob Jr., who’s 14 years older 2002, Callis Roofing became R.H. Callis & Sons, Inc. because Bob and Brenda’s three sons who had achieved a strong work ethic, good craftsmanship and learned the roofing trade at an early age from their father had grown up and decided to join the family business. Bob and Brenda’s oldest son, Bob Jr., who’s 14 years older. than his youngest brother has remained faithful as their foreman. When Bob Jr. took apart a two foot tall robot Santa had given him for Christmas and put it back together, his parents knew he was talented! The same skills he demonstrated as a toddler have come in quite handy in his dual roles as VP, in charge of production and Master Mechanic, in charge of maintaining the company vehicles. Zack, the second oldest son who is wonderful with their customers acts as VP, in charge of sales. Bob and Brenda’s youngest son, Daniel who had been dedicated to the business through high school eventually went away to UT Knoxville where he graduated and is now a TV producer. The skills Daniel acquired have helped him in many ways including the renovations of his 1922 home, which his father would love to take credit for! And not to leave anyone out... Christy, Bob and Brenda’s second oldest child, and their only daughter has always been their biggest fan! Although she didn’t follow in her brothers’ footsteps she has made a successful career for herself in marketing and sales. Her two boys however, have had their fair share on the roof along with Bob’s two boys who all worked for their Paw-Paw to earn some extra spending money growing up.

Callis Beliefs

​

The Callis family take pride in their excellent standing with The Better Business Bureau and are listed without a single complaint. They credit this to doing the work themselves and not hiring out subcontractors. This way, the Callis’ have the ability to provide you with the best residential and commercial roofing services available in Metro Nashville, Sumner County, Williamson County and beyond with their three family generations of top quality craftsmen and workmanship. R.H. Callis & Sons Inc. is about quality versus quantity. For instance, most roofing companies spend just a couple days on a roof and the workers are compensated based on the number of roofs they complete in a week. If you’re looking for a roofing company offering a 24-hour turnaround, then Callis Roofing is not the right choice. Taking the time to ensure every detail is attended to during the installation process, including the daily clean up of your property such as your landscaping and yard, is important to Callis Roofing, guaranteeing your roof  is done the right way, the first time around. The Callis’ also believe that they have been blessed with such loyal customers because they can trust every man on the job and know them personally. Their clients have definitely been hospitable over the years. They’ve even gone as far as serving the boys lemonade and cake and telling them they will be missed by their family and their dogs! Not only does Callis Roofing provide you with friendly roofers and a job well done but a fair price. They are not the cheapest and not the most expensive either. The Callis’ base their estimates on the cost of materials, the number of hours/days it will take and the complexity of the job. They also believe their boys deserve a fair price as well since they do earn every penny. R.H. Callis & Sons Inc. stands behind every job and guarantees you’ll be able to find them years down the road since all three generations take great pride in the family business.
