The Company Behind Roofers
The Company Behind Roofers
Roofers used to work for the federal government. They have been around since the turn of the 20th century and were originally called “Rigger’s,” but were then brought to the construction industry by Joseph Plumb. He was a Civil War veteran who established his own business in New York City.
It was in New York that Plumb met another veteran named Richard Paul. He was a railway employee and these two men would try to put up a railroad with a few roofers as assistants. During this time, Joseph Plumb’s name was first used and later changed to Roofers. He is also credited with making the name after the famous quote by Thomas Jefferson.
It was while working on the New York railroad that Plumb met and began talking to a businessman named J. G. Wentworth. They had the same interest in building railroad and P. H. Plumb agreed to work with him. They were both told they were going to meet in Detroit and if they didn’t like the location, they were free to go.
This meeting was set up for them to discuss the future of the company. They then took it upon themselves to put the plan into action. The guys went off on their own to find a location and the two became the founding fathers of the company.
The reason why Roofers was started was to build more and bigger buildings to make the company bigger. They realized they needed to move into commercial building and smaller homes and each group was also responsible for building their own roads. In today’s world, these same guys are still using the same technology to build one of the largest highway projects ever.
Using the same technique and utilizing the same suppliers as the railroad and the large commercial building, the company has become one of the largest companies in the country. Roofers can nowdo large projects such as ski runs and bridge decks. There are other projects available for the company that it will be growing for years to come.
As with any big guys out there, the company is also notorious for having to fight for subcontractors to build large projects. This is not unusual, though as many of the tradesmen that will do work for the company also have other large projects that they need to finish. The company knows that it has to be competitive and knows that it has to have the best possible crew working on their projects.
It is also important to know that there is no union with the roofers. They have been able to establish their reputation without going into the red and without paying out the labor unions. This makes the company one of the safest for you to work for, especially since there is no labor contract to worry about.
