Our Team

The Advanced Roofing Team

In the commercial roofing industry, it’s not only how the job’s performed, it’s who the people are, doing it. Their skills, their involvement, their professional demeanor. Hundreds of dedicated individuals make up the team at Advanced Roofing, and not only do they want your respect, they want you to like them. “Nice” is important to us. As is “courteous, efficient, exacting, honest, ethical, flexible, accommodating, logistical, knowledgeable.” There’s not an “it’s-not-my-job” attitude in the bunch. In fact, every job is everyone’s job. So there’s always someone there with an answer or who knows how to get something resolved. We work smart and we work safe. We train and train more. With this group, anything and everything is humanly possible. No contest.
