Our crews are professionally trained and certified to install all major brands of commercial and industrial roofing systems.

Our other roofing services include: repairs; removal and replacement; recovery, retrofit, and restoration; 24-hour emergency service; disaster response; emergency roof snow removal; roof maintenance programs; inspection and evaluation reports; and authorized warranty repairs.
Through the use of state-of-the-art technology, we are better able to serve our customers. We recently upgraded our accounting software and streamlined our internal processes to add value to the customer relationship. The FCS-Connect Software application, which runs on iPads, allows us to build entire platforms with multiple facilities, giving our customers access to our database. Customers can see the project status and history firsthand.
This past year, we became a Small Business Enterprise with the Department of Administrative Services (DAS/CT) and a General Services Administration (GSA) approved contractor. In order to be approved we had to pass an extensive background verification which included a third-party customer survey conducted by D&B with a 94 percent success rating.
