About Us

In 1950, Mr. Clyde Nettles joined forces with Sabin Nettles and Neclause Porth to form a roofing, painting, and minor carpentry repair company. These men worked hard to establish a reputation of quality workmanship and excellent customer service. Today, Clyde Nettles Roofing and Painting is one of the most well-known and respected names in roofing, painting, and home improvements in the Columbia area.

When Mr. Nettles retired in 1983, the Porth family purchased the business, and they remain the owners to this day. When Tony Porth, the oldest son of Neclause Porth, took over, he promised Mr. Nettles he would never do anything to tarnish the Nettles name and reputation of excellence. Even after Tony's death in 1997, the Porth family has continued the same quality craftsmanship of the original Nettles and Porth families.

Clyde Nettles Roofing and Painting places a high value on the employees who share Mr. Nettles' passion for excellence. Some of our employees have been with us for over 30 years. We value the experience and dedication they show each and every day. According to Suzette Porth, "Our employees are talented individuals who are experienced in the industry and take pride in their projects. We don't cut corners. That's how we keep our reputation, our employees, and our customers."
