Near Me Roofing & Contracting, “Our story” …

On this week’s edition of “Hitting the nail on the head”, I want to tell our story here at Near Me Roofing & Contracting. I want to share how we got into the business, what made us start a roofing company and what keeps us motivated every day to keep going. My name is Chad Bates, owner & operator at Near Me Roofing & Contracting. Ever since I was a kid, I had a creative mind; I always knew I would own a business one day. Now if you had told me I’d own a roofing business I might have laughed at you. But such is the way of life, opportunity comes and goes, and we eventually find what we were meant to do. I’m not new to entrepreneurship as I’ve owned a landscaping company since 2015. Some might call me a serial entrepreneur and honestly, I have all kinds of ideas for my future. But one thing that’s for certain roofing is in my blood. My twin brother Brad has owned a roofing company in Oklahoma City named “Icon Roofing & Construction “since 2018. In that time, they have installed roughly 900 roofs, so I’d say he has some experience in the industry. In October 2021 we both partnered up together to start “Near Me Roofing & Contracting”. We refer to it as the sister company! We just passed our 1-year anniversary in Texarkana Arkansas and Texarkana Texas installing roofs. To say it’s been a fun ride would be an understatement. We have really hit the ground running in 2022 letting everyone in our community know about our wonderful business. We specialize in Insurance replacement of residential roofing for asphalt shingle, metal and tile roofing. However, we have installed many retail roofs for local clients, it was just time for an upgrade or replacement. Our goal is to “bring professionalism to roofing”, we do this by providing over-the-top customer service, educating our clients and putting on the best products available on the market. We are “Malarkey certified pro installers”, and we really believe in their brand, quality and customer service. I could tell you about the product, but I would need an entire blog post to do that. Do your research and you’ll see why we decided to partner with this great company! We like to take the educational approach because without information, how can you make the best decision for roof replacement needs. Many companies install the cheapest products, cut corners and just don’t replace every item on the roof. We know your home or business is the biggest investment you will most likely ever have. Taking this into account we want to make sure your new roof will last you for many years to come. I believe my favorite part of the business is finding damage to a roof that a client would never know existed. I enjoy explaining the options of filing an Insurance claim and partnering with the client to be sure they get what is owed to them by their insurance. The industry is changing, technology advancements are on the rise and we at Near Me Roofing strive to stay current on every form of technology available to us. We can provide you a detailed roof report using a drone and AI (artificial intelligence) to pinpoint any storm related damages to your roof. We are also using products such as the” Catch-all system” to protect our clients landscaping from damage while their roof is being installed. We as a company have just touched the tip of the iceberg. Don’t take my word for it, just see what people are saying about us online. We are excited to see what the future holds, and who knows we may be able to help you soon. If we can be of any professional help to you, please give us a call at 903-949-3477. Or email us at , and visit our website at

Sincerely, Chad Bates
