What is your position within your company?
I am president of All American Roofing Inc., Bethany, Okla.

What is the most unusual roofing project of which you have been a part?
We replaced a No. 1 grade cedar shingle roof system on a house. The owner had called dozens of roofing contractors before us, and none of them knew how to replace the roof system because the wood shingles had to be bent over the rakes and eaves. It took us hundreds of man-hours to get the job done.

Why did you become involved in the roofing industry?
I was about to go to college, and a friend told me roofing work would be a good part-time job because it paid better than flipping hamburgers.
