Fall Letter from CEO 2017


Fall Letter from CEO 2017

A letter from Advanced Roofing’s founder and CEO, Robert “Rob” Kornahrens

As we close the books on one of the most active hurricane seasons we have seen in a while, we are reminded of how truly thankful we are to have a roof over our heads and a family that is safe and sound to make memories with this holiday season. We spent the second half of 2017 putting into action the groundwork we laid earlier in the year. A keen focus on sales and operations resulted in the 2nd most successful year since I founded Advanced Roofing in 1983. Our success is a direct result of the hard work our team members put forth every day, so thank you.

Mary Help of Christians Center Roof Replacement

Advanced Roofing replaces the roof at Mary Help of Christians Center in Tampa, Florida following Hurricane Irma damage

Mary Help of Christians Center, in Tampa FL, lost half of its roof during Hurricane Irma in September. With the school’s new gymnasium floor at risk of damage, Advanced Roofing’s Service crew installed a temporary roof dry-in with a 100’ x 100’ tarp. Next, our reroofing team got to work on a plan that would provide a high-wind resistant solution for a barrel roof with multiple slope changes. There were many design and safety challenges during this project, however, our experienced team was up to the task.
