perhaps any other reason is our people.
First, all of our roofers are drug
tested. This alone makes us fairly
unique in the roofing industry. Beyond
drug testing, every one of our people
has gone through safety training. This
safety training takes place upon hiring
and once per year thereafter. Our
safety training consists of safety
films and a written test that each
individual must pass before they can
ever step foot on your roof. Our people
are career people. The majority are
married and have been with our firm for
years. Our people participate in
significant profit sharing as well as
know how to conduct themselves on your
property; they do not smoke on your
roof and they wear proper, modest
and each proposal is important to us.
We take the time to investigate your
roof, prepare roof drawings,
photographs, as well as energy studies,
and not just throw a bid together for
the cheapest roof. All of this is to
present you with what we feel is the
best possible investment - one that
meets the unique aspects of your roof.

insurance premium increases as a result
of our September 11th tragedy. Many
firms have cut back on insurance
coverage to conserve costs. We feel
your project is too important to take
such a risk.
manufacturers we use are substantial.
They produce their own products in
their own factories and are ones that
we feel you can depend upon.
roof we do is important to us and every
roof receives our full and undivided

but a good manufacturer and a good product
does not necessarily guarantee a good roof.
The difference is in the applicator that
you choose to install your new roof system.
