About CIS Steeplejacks

Preserving the future from one generation to the next..


“Your crew was not only craftsmen, but workers who maintained the highest level of quality, efficiency, and professional standards..”

~ Robert H. Thurston, Columbus, GA Trustee

"Across the multiple weeks that you were on site, you were attentive to detail and went the extra mile in every area to bring our building back to its original design. In fact, you suggested ways to implement improvements on the original design based upon your work history"

~ First United Methodist Church Staff

"Every time I go by the church on a sunny day I admire how bright and clean the steeple appears. Before the restoration and repainting the steeple was a dull white outlined with brown places where the wood had rotted. Now it’s a glossy white that speaks to those who look up and see the beauty of your handy work. It’s as if it is saying as it sticks out in the sunlight,” look at my new coating, isn’t it beautiful!”

Ray Tucker FPC Raliegh, NC

Veteran steeplejack and company owner Michael A. Hardin Sr. has traveled much of the country providing proper and professional church steeple, dome and cupola restoration as well as an array of other historical preservation and repairs, also, pre-bid consultations as well as knowledgeable and thorough inspections. He has provided high quality, on-time and on-budget repair, restoration, roofing, painting, cladding and gilding projects for a countless number of churches, cathedrals, property owners, schools, municipal buildings, governmental facilities as well as professional stadiums, resorts and entertainment parks.

Michael graduated early in 1986 from vocational school and went directly into the field of historical restoration and commercial / industrial building repair. While working on radio towers, stadium lights and flag poles was daring and exciting, his real passion fell towards repairing, restoring and preserving steeples, domes and cupolas and other meaningful and beautiful architecture. When Michael is not busy during his travels and work, he is spending quality time with his family and friends. As a dedicated musician / recording artist, he spends some of his time working on various music projects.

His wife and most important business counterpart Magi, has 20 years experience in small business management and customer relations. She graduated in 1996 and went on to obtain degrees in small business law, management, accounting, as well as veterinary medicine. When Magi isn't busy trying to keep everything in line, she is also spending time with the family.
