Cash, principal of Simpson Gumpertz & Heger
Inc., Waltham, Mass.
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
