The Fortress Difference

Adam Cordon founded Fortress Roofing while still studying business in college. To help pay his way through college, he started replacing and repairing roofs, a skill his father taught him while in high school. While getting his business degree, he started applying what he learned in school to the foundations of a great company: hiring the right people, proper management and re-investing in the business. The application of these principals have helped to build the company that Fortress Roofing is today: a strong company that excels in the craftsmanship of its work and customer satisfaction.

In this industry, the focus is understandably on the ability of the man holding the hammer. But for a major project, such as a roof replacement, it is equally important to know that  behind the man with the hammer is an established, experienced and reputable company that is able to handle any problem that might arise. At Fortress Roofing, not only are our technicians fantastic at their trade, but  foreman and managers are experienced and knowledgeable. They stay up-to-date with current trends and practices in the roofing industry. They attend conferences, workshops and training to maintain certification from all required state and local agencies. We also stay current on training and certification which allows Fortress to maintain our status as a preferred contractor for the nation’s leading roofing material manufacturers, including GAF, Owens Corning, and CertainTeed.

When you are tasked with finding a reliable contractor, you might ask yourself: does the person have 30 years experience or 1 year of experience repeated 30 times?  Is he still a one-man show hiring his cousins and nephew when he needs them and operating out of his basement?  Or have they reinvested in the company over the years in improved equipment, trained and certified technicians, and teamed up with manufacturers to offer the best warranties? Have they kept up with the drastic changes in our industry in the last 10 years? When you see our commitment to continuing education, training and certification from all of our manufacturers, membership with organizations that teach our industry’s best practices, our fantastic customer relations, and estimators trained to give the best price possible, combined with our outstanding craftsmanship and efficient service, then you will understand the Fortress Difference!
