Community Roofing, Inc.|
Corporate Headquarters: 325 E. Euclid Ave., Milwaukee, WI 53207 (414) 332-1139 firstname.lastname@example.org
We have been privileged to serve Milwaukee's homeowners and businesses
since 1975. We hope to prove worthy of creating an institution that
will prosper well into the 21st Century.
In our early years, we focused on products and services that were
primarily "functional," i.e. stopping leaks and renewing roof systems
in the most cost-effective way possible. This includes reroofs with
asphalt and fiberglass shingles, "tear-offs," repairs, small and medium
sized flat roofs, and aluminum gutters. We have serviced about 4,000
clients along these lines.
Lately we have begun to branch out into restoration projects that are
as much "art" as function, e.g. slate, tile and copper work. I
personally am beginning to tell people that I am an "apprentice
restoration peddler" for my second adult life. This means that I am
seeking restoration masters to learn from and to promote.
At this point, Josh Fraundorf, Karl Ramirez, and Dan Mickelson are
handling the lion's share of residential roofing projects for Community
Roofing; my associates in related trades include David North, of David
North Roofing, for slate, tile, and copper; Norman Dunkelberger of
Centaur Restoration, for architectural art and masonry; Erik Lindberg,
of Community Building and Restoration, for carpentry and custom
architectural woodworking; Juanita Ellias, of Rivercity Woodworking,
for fine art, design and restoration; Al Bardin, for painting and
handyman work; Tom Price, for high end decorative work and remodeling;
Dan Vogel, of Heartwoods Furniture, for furniture restoration and
refinishing; Denis Kavanagh of Kavanagh Construction, for tile work,
remodeling and restoration.
We hope that Community Roofing, Inc. and its employees and our
partner companies may be an embryonic Milwaukee Guild, connecting
restoration roofers, carpenters, sheet metalers, masons, painters, and
architectural artists. It has been my pleasure and my honor to work
with my associates. I suspect you will share my sentiments if you sign
up with us for a project.
For the past quarter century, we have worked very hard in a very
dangerous and complex industry. We have been often humbled by the
subtlety and mystery of water and the challenge of restoring our
historic homes and buildings. We have made mistakes that, in
retrospect, seem outrageous. I personally have worked on several
hundred "callbacks", i.e. deviations from perfection noticed either by
our client or by the penetrating power of water.
We have, however, dug in and survived many challenges. We have been
very focused on learning from our mistakes and expanding our
information base regarding the most appropriate strategy for roof
system repair and restoration, specific to the particulars of each
building and each building owner's relationship with their property.
