Professional Roofing: What is the most unusual roofing project you've performed?
Wolkowitz: Almost every job is unusual and/or bizarre. We constantly are reroofing a wing of the Metropolitan Museum of Art, which has irreplaceable exhibits. The American Museum of Natural History is similar. Then, we have the Donald Trump jobs ... I'm not going into much detail here because we still have to work for these guys.
Why did you become a roofing contractor?
I'm fourth generation! Need I say more?
What was your first roofing experience?
Helping to load the company trucks when I was a teenager. We didn't have a forklift at the time. If something couldn't be lifted, then it was pushed and pulled up a ramp (with much commentary).
What are your favorite items on your desk?
There are no favorite items on my desk. However, if I include the credenza, then my favorites are all the pictures of my family (which I took).
