What is your position within your company?
I am president of J.L. Adler Roofing & Sheet Metal Inc., Joliet, Ill.

What is the most unusual roofing project of which you have been a part?
We reroofed a tile plant almost 20 years ago. Pipes, units and protrusions were everywhere. You could hardly stand up in most areas. The roof still is performing.

Why did you become involved in the roofing industry?
Every night, I watched my father work late, and I wanted to help him as soon as I could.
