Did you ever notice when you mention “Roofing Contractor” to someone, frequently their first comment is something less than complimentary? Often a short story follows detailing a bad experience with an unreliable contractor, a roof system failure, or both. If it hasn’t happened to you, chances are you know someone it has.

Unfortunately, this story happens all too often in the commercial roofing industry. There are hundreds of different roof systems and contractors to choose from, so how do you determine what’s best for your needs? To make matters worse, the typical building owner only occasionally deals with roofing, making it even tougher to sort out inferior contractors and products.

Premier Roof Systems, Inc. was established in 1987. Our management team has over 100 aggregate years experience in the commercial roofing industry. We’ve built our reputation on providing our customers with reliable service; on quality workmanship we’ll stand behind; and on recommending roof systems that are best suited to meet your needs, not ours.

We’ll take the guess work out of purchasing commercial roofing by proving Premier is a name you can trust.

Thank you,
Shane Vanderbilt.

Prudent management and conservative fiscal policy have enabled Premier to operate from our own working capital for decades. We stock more commercial roofing inventory than ten ordinary contractors combined and even some of the distributors in the area. Our long and successful history of financial stability insures that your project will be executed without issue. Our customers need not worry about potential material lien filings, nor do we ask for any sort of upfront money prior to starting your project. You should beware of any contractor that does.

Premier has never had a material lien filed against one of our projects.

Premier has never defaulted on a contract.

Premier has never failed to successfully complete a project.

Any contractor that does surely indicates the absence of adequate working capital to maintain stability.
