Since his partnership, he has been able to grow the business to a nationally recognized commercial roofing enterprise, currently in the top 1% in the country. Paul has been acknowledged as a national expert in his field, winning the “Most Influential” award within the United States’ Restoration Industry in 2018 & 2019.

His values are simple; with God as your foundation and staying true to your principals, anything is possible.
