Here at AWS Roofing, “we’ve all been roofers our whole lives,” said Rodney Powers, a second generation roofer from Edgewater. Rodney’s father, Cecil, and uncle, Hershel, ran H&C Roofing company in the area for 30 years. Today, Rodney, his three brothers, Marvin, Mitchell and Randy, all continue the tradition alongside Buddy Smith, who they partnered with in 1994 to form AWS Roofing.
“My father and his brother worked well together,” said Rodney. It’s not everyday that you see so many family members together in business. “We worked for them as kids and learned how to work together from them. We’ve always been a close family growing up.”
From its showroom, homeowners are able to see a wide array of shingle, metal, concrete tile or flat roofing materials that meet Florida Building Code and are Miami-Dade approved.
AWS walks homeowners through color selection and other aesthetic choices that might affect their bottom line. The knowledgeable staff helps customers also consider longevity of materials, warranty, environmental needs, value and energy efficiency.
“We try to be very open and address all concerns,” said Sandy Slack, who’s been with AWS for six years and works closely with homeowners beyond the estimation process.
AWS has been recognized with numerous community and business awards, including the Hometown News readers choice award and the news journal’s Star of the south award.
