Professional Roofing: What is the most difficult roofing project you've performed?
Gustafson: The guest house at a residence in Palm Beach, Fla. My six- to 10-member crew installed 225 squares (2025 m²) of Vermont slate on a roof with a 10-in-12 (40-degree) slope. The guest house features 25 large windows that were covered with lead-coated copper dormers we fabricated in our shop. In addition, the guest house has 75 squares (675 m²) of low-slope roof systems on which we mop- and torch-applied various modified bitumen roof systems. The main and guest houses now are on sale for $75 million.

Why did you become a roofing contractor?
My father, Tom Gustafson, was a painting contractor, and I went to work for him after college. Soon after, my father started a roofing division because it was an extension of what we already were doing.
