Each year, Roofing Contractor magazine honors the residential and commercial contractors that employ industry best practices, take care of their employees, and excel at quality workmanship and customer satisfaction.
The coveted industry awards for 2016 went to Able Roof/Mr. Roof, of Columbus, Ohio, in the residential category, and century-old Baker Roofing Co., of Raleigh, N.C., on the commercial side.
The announcement occurred before more than 400 roofing contractors and punctuated the first day of RC’s 12th annual Best of Success conference Sept. 26 in Marco Island, Fla. Watch the announcements recorded live on Roofing Contractor’s Facebook page.
“We’re honored to have this award and it goes to our employees. They’re the ones that make it happen,” said Mark Lee, president of Baker Roofing, upon accepting the award and commemorative trophy from RC Publisher Jill Bloom.
“We are very humbled by this,” Able/Mr. Roof President Jim Ziminski said. “It’s very humbling to be nominated and to win this award, and we do our best to try and uphold the best standards in the roofing industry.”

From the entire RC team, thank you to all the contractors, distributors, manufacturers and readers that submitted nominations. We look forward to hearing from you again when nominations for the 2017 award open in January.
