About Us

Orlando’s Foremost Roofer For Over 30 Years.

Started in 1986 by Jay Rintelmann, our main priority was to provide secure, high-quality roofs for businesses across Central Florida. Over 30 years later and now owned and operated by second generation contractor, Peter Rintelmann, our priorities have not changed. We specialize in low slope, commercial roofing and sheet metal fabrication. This has been our passion and our bread and butter since the beginning. Our expertise and industry knowledge have earned us the reputation of being a high-quality Orlando roofing contractor.

We customize our solutions to fit nearly every roofing budget.

Hartford South, LLC takes pride in our extensively trained staff and dependable precision. We have completed many important, highly profile, and complicated roofing projects across Central Florida. Our clients take confidence in our attention to detail, and rest assure every space is safe, secure, and free of leaks.

We remain dedicated to providing top quality commercial roofing contracting. Our recently renovated and expanded facility was designed with our clients in mind. Our larger space ensures our rigorously trained staff remains committed to providing solutions for your business, and meeting or exceeding any project schedule.

Superior Materials for Long-Term Results

When certified roofing contractors use a manufacturer’s material, they must first become “licensed” through the manufacturer. Contractors are trained in the specificities, and an agreement is made between each manufacturer and contractor, to ensure the materials are installed according to their strict installation guidelines. Hartford South’s roofing contractors are licensed, insured and approved by a long list of high-quality roofing manufacturers.

We Believe in Serving Our Community.

We have been honored to call Orlando, FL our home for the past several decades.

We offer annual donations to several Central Florida charities including Give Hope, Give Kids the World, and Boys & Girls Club.

We are always looking for ways to help our community. If you are a charitable organization or know someone in need, please contact us to discuss possible partnership opportunities.
