Active Roofing was established in 1965 it was a small family owned business run by my parents for almost 30 years. In 1996 I joined the team. My first week in sales, I took a day, and I walked from Wrigley Field to the Merchandise Mart knocking on doors. Right around Fullerton and Clark I realized that many of these buildings are managed by the same company, so I took the Yellow Pages, yes a real book, and wrote down property management companies. That night I went to the office and started emailing companies offering the Active Roofing services. That was the beginning, 20 years later I am still knocking on doors it’s just via email, text and face to face lunches and dinners. We have outgrown the small office in Hickory Hills and now have a main office in Chicago, with satellite offices in Milwaukee and Florida. Our sales have increased tenfold, and we have installed millions of square feet of roofing membrane across the country.
We are a larger company but we still have the same mentality now as we did then, just on a bigger scale. The entire staff is committed to fulfilling the customers roofing needs. We are a full service roofing contractor, maintenance, repairs, and full roof replacements. We have grown as a company but have kept the small family atmosphere combining humor, training, intelligence and knowledge along with a real team effort.
Without the Active Roofing team, we would not be where we are today. We continue to grow thanks to loyal friends, customers and clients who understand they can count on the Active Roofing team. I’m proud of who and what we have become and hope to continue to grow keeping the same old school values we learned growing up.
