Meet Brian: Our Project Manager
Brian Seabolt
Brian recommends the best way to get into his industry (and do well) is to stay in school and take care of your customers: “relationships are everything”.
His favorite part of the job is meeting different people and helping them solve their problems, and his favorite time to be on a roof? Spring!
We asked how his best friend would describe him?  He chuckled when he told us, “A workaholic!”
Magnum Roofing and Gutter are always accepting new clients, whether you speak with Brian or one of his associates, they’re an amazing, responsive and reliable team.

Brian Seabolt is a partner in Magnum Roofing and Gutter and is also currently working as our Project Manager on the
Environs Residential 400 7th Street development.


Brian has worked in the roofing/gutter industry for 22 years and completed work for the Environs organizations for well over 8 years; he has roofed or repaired countless homes for both real estate and home improvement clients.


What we like most about Brian is his honesty and integrity. He has come in after other roofing companies and repaired what others insisted needed replacing. He has helped other clients with insurance claims when they thought they only needed a repair.


Not only is Brian honest and reliable, he’s our kind of “people”. He recently spent the day volunteering with the real estate team to build a chicken coop for an elementary school!

Thank you for all that you do, Brian.

Atlanta Home Shoppers Don’t Mind Waiting
for the Perfect House
home owners can wait

According to a recent survey, Atlantans are more determined than the average American to get their asking price. But perhaps most interesting is that Atlantans are patient (
don’t judge us on how we drive!)… Atlanta sellers are more willing to keep their house on the market for 6 months to a year!
