Professional Roofing: What is the most unusual roofing project of which you have been a part?
Cash: We designed a reroofing project for a 5,227-square (47,043-m²) shopping center. The two lowest bids by good roofing contractors had a difference of $100. We got the contract awarded to both contractors after conferring with them, as well as the owner. It was a great job.
Why did you become involved in the roofing industry?
A young lady and I agreed to get married shortly after I was discharged from the Army. I took the first job I was offered, with Ruberoid, about a week after I left the Army.
What was your first roofing experience?
My first roofing materials experience was learning about asphalt, felts, granules, coatings and sealants in Ruberoid's research laboratory in South Bound Brook, N.J.
What are your favorite items on your desk?
Some of my most valued items probably are my telephone, computer and a panoramic photo of a sunset over the Pacific Ocean taken from a San Diego condominium. The computer and telephone are my links to clients. The photograph reminds me of good times with friends and family.
