to produce andmanufacture. I also recognized that a faster turnaround time and individual attention would provide great value tomy customers. I enjoy every part of my job—well, almost! I like to work, and I love what I do. Being there for people and helping themwith their projects gets me going in the morning. There is nothing more satisfying then burying in and tackling a job head-on with a customer. Getting out and fulfilling contractors’ needs is my absolute favorite. I love the clients I work with. They are wonderful people with an incredible sense for what they do. It’s extremely gratifying to knowwe can help them with that custompiece of trim they were looking for or to help find any solution to their roofing or pole- building project. I am literally putting a roof over someone’s head, and in turn, putting one over my family’s head. A big part of why I do what I do is my incredible family andmy four kids. I love takingmy three boys out and teaching them to fish. We have a perfect spot right outside our house where we can fish all day and night. I’mnot able to get out as much these days with business picking up, but when I do, there’s no better reward for hard work.

When I first started in the metal industry almost 15 years ago, I had no idea I’d be runningmy own roll forming and trim shop. Now that I do, I can’t imagine doing anything else. I started this business because I believe I have a product that this area of Michigan desperately needs. When the car industry crashed, buildings in this area were hit hard. Many roofs went unattended for years, causingmajor complications for business owners and contractors. I saw a great need for metal roofing because of its value to homeowners. I knew frommy time working in the industry that metal is better than traditional shingles. It’s better because it lasts longer, keeps your structure cooler in the summer, and is fire resistant. We all know it doesn’t get much better than that! With this great value, I expected there to be an abundance of options for contractors all over the area, but there wasn’t. The only real choices around were the big-box stores, which often took weeks to get contractors their items. It was obvious tome that there was a huge need for someone who could sell and produce roofing and metal trimproducts, so I startedmy own shop. I knewwhat took the bigger resale stores weeks to order and get in would only take me a matter of days

Second Prize

Speaking of rewards, we were incredibly excited to give away our prizes for 2017’s top three clients. For those who don’t know, every year we have an awards dinner and prizes for whomever does the most business with us. The prizes vary each year, but last year’s were especially awesome. First place was won by Miller Bro’s Roofing, second by Dutch Brothers Construction, and third by Basic Construction. Everyone who received a gift loved it, and we were thrilled to provide this for our top customers. Our clients have been amazing to work with, and they showcase our product better than anyone. They match our values of hard work and integrity, and we love working with them as often as we can. This year promises to have gifts just as great. If you want to be in the top three so you can win great prizes, you’ve got a big task ahead of you. The good news is Michigan always needs metal roofs, and we are here to provide them.
