It’s been quite a year for the roofing industry, and one filled with innovation, positive growth and productive ideas for a successful tomorrow. With record turnouts at big industry events like the International Roofing Expo, which experienced the largest attendance in the show’s 62-year history at more than 11,000 people, the industry is demonstrating a lot of positive momentum and promise moving forward.
This year's Top Contractor List:
Previous Top Contractor Lists
Despite continued challenges — including the shortage of skilled workers and increases in insurance, healthcare and regulatory costs — companies are adapting and operating better than ever before. Their overall revenue growth from 2016 speaks for itself and is the basis of our Top 100 list for 2017.
For the ninth consecutive year, the Roofing Contractor team collected 2016 annual sales revenue totals submitted independently by companies from all around the country and molded our 2017 list of the highest-earning roofing professionals industrywide. The revenue information provided was self-reported throughout the first half of 2017.
A great deal of companies project that their revenue will increase substantially from 2016-17. They credit such growth to factors like heavy expansion, improved financial procedures, operating efficiencies as well as an increase in storm-related roof damage. Many companies are also keen on investing in their marketing, website and social media efforts to help increase brand awareness and generate new leads.
Several companies admit to utilizing new forms of roofing technology within their businesses to increase efficiency, including Aspen Contracting, who ranks 13th on our list this year. According to the company’s marketing director Courtney Nussbeck, “We have spent a lot of time and energy streamlining our processes, implementing regular training and using the best technologies available to us to help us increase productivity in all aspects of our business.”
The annual list, which RC first began compiling in 2008 on the cusp of the economic downturn, has grown into a tradition, and one that many companies are consistently thrilled to be a part of.
“Being a Top 100 contractor has increased the confidence of our staff, which in turn increases the confidence of our consumers. It has definitely helped us in our recruiting efforts and gaining new customers,” said Ty Adams, president of Minneapolis-based Legacy Restoration, LLC, which is tied for 92nd on this year’s list.
Without further ado, let’s take a look at some standout companies from this year’s list.
