Roofing contractors have much more to worry about than just the build itself.
The past few years we’ve seen an onslaught of severe weather across the country. From floods to hurricanes, wildfires to tornados, construction across the country has suffered the wrath of mother nature.
If you’re in the roofing contracting industry, you’ve probably been frustrated by what seems like a lack of talent in the workforce. Finding a skilled team of workers seems almost impossible and if you’ve had this thought, you’re not alone.

Our Purpose

Rise Conference Workshops for Contractors

There is a great deal of “noise” in this industry. Vendor calls never stop and most are fronted by talented sales professionals who present a compelling story. Unfortunately, many of these vendors fall way short of the promises that sound so good on sales pitches, but amount to nothing but wasted time and money once a deal is signed. It is hard to tell the difference between a good vendor-partner and a pretender that is only interested in siphoning off your profits with weak and low-value services. Choosing good, trustworthy partners is challenging but incredibly important.
