On Thursday, Aug. 18, the Dawson County Chamber of Commerce held an official ribbon-cutting ceremony for North Georgia Roofing & Property Renovations, a local business specializing in roofing, exterior work, home remodeling, restoration and 203K renovations.
A family-run business co-owned and operated by Cody Freeman and his cousin Corwin Green, NGPR offers a variety of home services.
“We pretty much do everything from the ground up,” Freeman said. “If it’s a flooded house, the house catches fire, or a tree falls on the house…we do a lot.”
According to Freeman, he and Green have been in the home renovation business for many years and originally started the company out of their house over four years ago.

Since then, their business has doubled year-over-year and expanded to the point of offering services in all or parts of 18 counties across north Georgia.
One of their unique services is the 203K renovation, which is work related to a federal loan that allows homebuyers to finance the rehabilitation of homes that are foreclosed or in a state of disrepair.
“We are one of two contractors in the whole state of Georgia that is 203K certified,” Freeman's sister and NGPR Operations Manager Ashley Young said.
Freeman also said that NGPR operates as a parent company to NGPR Roofing & Exteriors and Lanier Home Builders.
According to the LHB website, the company offers services including home additions, basements, custom homes and light commercial work.
The wide range of work offered by NGPR allows them to quickly expand their customer base and get to know the regional community, Freeman said.
“We use a lot of local subcontractors to help us with the work as well,” Freeman said. “We’re trying to make sure we keep everything in the community as much as we can.”
NGPR is located at 2806 Dawson Forest Rd E and can be reached at 770-231-9049. The company can also be found on Facebook and Youtube at NGPR Roofing & Exteriors, where they have photos and videos of their services.
