The Excitement Continues – 2018 in Review

Over the last five years, the Choice Roof Contractor Group has continued to be a leader in helping commercial roofing contractors grow their operations. This past year has been no different. Throughout 2018, we continued to put the effort in to heighten brand recognition, increase contractor relationships, and promote superior training options which kept us on the upward trend of growth.

Highlights from 2018

The Added Credibility Makes a Big Impact

The 40,000 square foot roof lead was just one more perk to their endorsed membership this year!
