Gregg Wallick, President of Best Roofing in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., has over three decades of experience in the roofing industry. And during those 33 years, Wallick has built quite a reputation.
The primary focus of Wallick’s company, Best Roofing, is diagnosing roofing problems, prescribing repairs, and maintaining and replacing roofing systems. “Our investigation methods enable our specialists to determine whether the roof is a candidate for repairs, restorations or replacement,” he said. “We have developed special techniques to enhance the quality of your roof and keep it in excellent shape, all of which saves you tens of thousands of dollars in roof replacements.”
Wallick prides himself on his ability to determine why roofs fail and what can be done to correct the situation. He also takes pride in conveying his knowledge, experience, strategies and tactics to a staff of dedicated professionals thoroughly trained in diagnosing roofs and offering a range of options for owners to consider.
Best Roofing performs almost all of its work in the commercial market, although a small part of the company’s work is large custom residential homes. “We focus on what we do well,” Wallick said. He had this advice for contractors: “Never cut corners. Understand what it really costs to do a project.”
During tough economic times, Wallick said his company has been forced to focus on helping its clients maintain their roofs until money loosens up for them to make the required investment in a long-term solution. “We’ve been servicing the short-term objectives of our client until they can afford to replace their roofs. As the commercial real estate market rebounds we will be in relationships with these clients as we assisted them during the difficult times.”
Best Roofing is most proud of the Keiser University project, in which a GAF TPO roof system was successfully installed over a holiday break. “Keiser University was closed between Christmas and New Year’s, and needed a 90,000-square-foot roof area completed prior to staff and students returning,” Wallick said. “Best Roofing was committed to getting the roof done.”
Wallick resides in Plantation, Fla., where he and his wife have raised six children, ranging in age from 12 to 24 years old.
“My hobbies are gardening, fine dining, bookstores, reading and church,” And don’t forget his main hobby: “training the next generation on how to solve roof problems for our clients.”
