Tons of Shingle Waste. And a Recycling Solution

In 2011 I was appointed to the newly formed National Shingle Recycling Committee. Its a collaboration of efforts and research from many different companies spanning many different industries to work on a solution for the ever growing amount of shingle waste going to landfills.

5 Misconceptions About Metal Roofs

Metal has been a popular choice for roofing for some time, but has been gaining even more interest in the recent decade.  Metal roofs have been proven to withstand many climates for centuries. They are more durable, resilient, and eco-friendly than most any other systems.  Installing a metal roof can also enhance the aesthetic appearance […]

No leaks!! For sure. But it should look good to!

Ive seen too many roofs lately that look, well, not that great. Just talking with a colleague yesterday about “proportions” on a metal roof.  Even though it is all the same color, gauge, part of the same system and all, the reveal lines and proportions should be consistent. For example: We are doing a 70 […]

The customer will create a perception, misguided or not, […]


When preparing quotes for customers I always have to explain that our ice and water shield is a different grade than most of our competitors.  They usually look at me as if to say,”Well I didn’t think about that. I didn’t know there were different grades!”   Just like there are different grades of washers […]

My office is going mobile!

Quality has always been a top priority at Empire.  And safety is a huge priority too, followed by employee retention and training.

How I saved Mr. Z over $6000 on his roof

A few years ago the local varsity basketball coach asked me to quote the roof on his house. This was a simple ranch style home with a fairly low slope.  From the outset he wanted a standing seam panel roof (concealed fastener system). He had heard that these roofs were the best a homeowner could […]
