As a decorated Vietnam Vet, I began my roofing career 1971. I learned that hard work pays well and with hard work advancement comes quickly. Within five years I was a licensed roofing contractor and the proud owner of Esser Roofing Company in San Clemente, California. Esser Roofing Co. was a full service roofing company sold for profit in 1980.
During a year of soul searching I formulated the business concept of “roof management”. The idea being that an experienced roofing tradesman could sell his experience by assuming responsibility for the proper care of a client’s roof or roof portfolio. The innovative concept took the roofing industry by storm and the significance of preventive roof maintenance became a sub-industry.
Over the next thirty-five years, Commercial Roof Management, Inc. (CRMI) evolved into the industry leader in roof management concepts and their implementation.
