How did you get started in the roofing industry?
After returning home from the military, I met a very interesting young lady that I later married. Her Dad owned Armstrong Roofing and hired me in a starting position as a laborer (obviously to keep an eye on me) and we went from there. As positions opened up, I climbed the ladder and eventually ended up as owner and President. What a ride it’s been.
What’s your favorite part of the job?
I enjoy meeting new customers and creating relationships that will last through the next generation. I also enjoy being a problem solver, which never ends and can make or break a project or company. Read more.
