2017 Commercial Roofing Contractor of the Year: KPost Roofing & Waterproofing

KPost Roofing & Waterproofing Continues to Thrive Working Almost Exclusively in the Dallas Market

If roofing is indeed a team sport, then few — if any — commercial roofing contractors around the United States embrace the philosophy quite like the team at KPost Roofing & Waterproofing in Dallas. It starts with President Steve Little, who prefers the title of head coach, and it trickles down through the company’s organizational structure, which he prefers to describe in football terms.

“We’re made of three separate units: the offense, which is our sales team; the defense, which is our field leadership and crew; and the special teams, which is our administration,” Little described. “We built the company up like a football team because we knew that if we operated like a football team, that within that team we could train, manage and excel in our skillsets.”

The process, which evolved since CEO Keith Post, Little and CFO Jayne Williams set out to mold their own company in one of the most robust construction markets in the country in 2003, is working. KPost’s 430 employees tallied a company-record $63 million in revenue last year, an increase of roughly 30 percent from the previous year and good for 19th on RC ’s Top 100 list for 2017.

That success, coupled with the scope, safety record and quality of KPost’s work, laid the groundwork for its selection as RC ’s Commercial Roofing Contractor of the Year for 2017.

The continued growth and industry accolades certainly exceeded the expectations the trio had when the doors opened. Little said the initial game plan was to build a company that could generate $10 million in revenue and sustain about 100 employees within the first three years. However, early success fueled their drive, and there seemed no sense in stopping any momentum the company was building.

In football terms, that meant protecting their home turf and clearing the field by proactively organizing a plan that challenged obstacles that could get in the way of reaching the goal line. Little said they did it by stepping out of the way and letting the offense, defense and special teams find their own ways to excel independently, while still keeping the team’s long-term success in mind. 

He left no doubt about his appreciation for all three ‘units’ upon accepting RC ’s 2017 Commercial Roofing Contractor of the Year award at the Best of Success conference in Tucson in September.

“We’re deeply honored to receive this reward and humbled,” he said. “We have tremendous people, and try to give back at every opportunity. This demonstrates that when you give, it comes back to you ten-fold.”

Solar Spray Foam Roof installed by San Francisco Bay Area Contractor, Wedge Roofing was selected as "Best in the Nation" by the Spray Polyurethane Foam Alliance (SPFA).  The SPFA announced the winners of the 2017 Spray Foam Industry Excellence Awards at their 12th annual Awards Gala in Palm Springs. For the third consecutive year, Wedge Roofing won the First Place Award for Best Spray Foam Roof Nationwide under 40,000 sq. ft.

In this national competition, industry leading spray foam roofing projects from across the country were judged independently by a panel of experts, based on Value for Money, Speed of Delivery, Environmental Sustainability, Innovation, Best Practices, Problem Solving, and Risk Mitigation.

The award-winning solar spray foam roof system converted reroofing capital outlay into income generation for The Mission, a non-denominational house of worship located in Vacaville, California.

Custom designed by Wedge Roofing, this roofing project combines the benefits of a High-Performance Insulating Spray Foam Roof with the cooling effect of a Reflective Roof Coating and the energy generation of a rooftop solar system, resulting in an energy-efficient roof system that will pay for itself in utility savings.

The high-end Accella Brand Premium Spray Foam Products Roof installed by Wedge was paired with an equally high-end 163kW Photovoltaic System from Westhaven Solar for a seamless roof installation and solar system integration. The pairing means both systems work at peak efficiency, the solar system safely and securely implemented over the energy-efficient SPF roofing system.

GREELEY ROOFING COMPANY DONATES ROOF TO CATHOLIC CHURCH

Posted By WSRCA, Thursday, October 12, 2017

Greeley Roofing Company Donates Roof To OUR LADY OF PEACE Catholic Church

Front Range Roofing Systems Replace Aging Roof At No Cost

by: Andrea North, Greeley Tribune

When Greg Farris told Aracely Garcia his roofing company would replace her church's roof for free, she thought her English had failed her.

"I wasn't sure if I was listening and understanding OK. because my first language is not English," Garcia said. " I thought to myself, 'Maybe I misunderstood.'

But indeed, Front Range Roofing Systems had offered to replace the aging roof of Our Lady of Peace Catholic Church, 1311 3rd St. Garcia, the church's finance director, noticed last winter the church's roof could not hold snow without leaking. Recently, Garcia visited Front Range Roofing Systems for a quote to replace it, bracing for the answer. Farris evaluated the flat commercial roof and estimated $45,000.

But Farris had a better idea.

Some of his employees attend the church, so he felt that donating the roof was a good way to give back to them and the community. Plus, he was celebrating the company's 30th year in business.

"It's in the lower income part of town, so we thought it would be something good to give back," Farris said. "They're our neighbors, so I feel like it's a good, neighborly thing to do." 

Front Range employees donated their labor, and the manufacturing company they work with, Carlisle SynTec Systems, donated the materials. Farris used the job as a training opportunity and had almost 50 employees install the church's roof. The job was complete in a few hours Thursday.

Garcia said she was very grateful.

"Without even asking them, they offered to do that for us and for our community," she said.
