Maxwell Roofing & Sheet Metal is much more than a commercial contractor. A legacy family business with nearly 70 years of history and experience, we're a modern roofing company founded on traditional values and work ethic.

In 1956, decorated B-17 Bomber Squadron Commander, Kenneth Maxwell, started the business as the Nashville branch of Tri-State Roofing. In 1963, it became Maxwell-Webster Roofing. About 20 years later, the business officially became Maxwell Roofing & Sheet Metal, Inc. More than half a century later, the business is still operated by members of the Maxwell family.

From a local business that originally served Middle Tennessee, Maxwell quickly expanded to Northern Alabama and Southern Kentucky. In 2010, Maxwell opened a satellite office in Huntsville to serve the demands of the northern Alabama region. Today, Maxwell enjoys a highly-regarded reputation across the Mid-South region as an honest and capable commercial roofing and sheet metal contractor.

As a modern roofing company founded on traditional values and work ethic, we take responsibility seriously. And, because Maxwell Roofing & Sheet Metal, Inc. is a family-run business, we trade on our reputation. Much more than just a roofing company, Maxwell is a market leader in quality, documentation and customer service. Our customers are often surprised at the thoroughness and level of depth found in our reporting, and we’ve developed a roof-management program that educates, adds value, and extends roof life.


Our success and reputation are based on our five core values:

  • Quality: Providing an excellent finished product that exceeds expectations.
  • Teamwork: Achieving common goals through open communication, mutual respect, and the support of one another.
  • Integrity: Doing what we say we will do, when we say we will do it.
  • Professionalism: Exercising our expertise and advancing through education and training.
  • Service: Facilitating relationships to understand client needs and provide an exceptional customer experience.


“Our goal is to become the most trusted name in commercial roofing and the recognized standard in quality and customer service. We work with manufacturers to get the most out of our customers’ warranties. We offer free design services to help them avoid mistakes in construction planning. We help them reduce costs and meet timelines by fabricating our own metal in-house.”
