Describe what your organization provides for its customers:
We provide all types of low slope/flat roofing replacement, repair and restorations while specializing in commercial and industrial applications.
Give us a brief history of your business and what makes it unique:
Delta Roofing has been meeting customer’s roofing needs since 1970. We’ve been at the same location and with the same phone number since 1972 - and believe it or not, with the same owner, the one and only “Doctor of Roofology” Jim Spears.
Delta Roofing has employees year around to assist you with your roofing needs. Jim is proud to say that several of the employees have been with Delta for 25 plus years. Delta Roofing employees are required to complete the OSHA-10 Safety training as well as having a ZERO TOLERANCE drug and alcohol policy that guarantees the customer will not be “exposed” to impaired workers. Delta Roofing provides FULL benefits to their employees including 401-K retirement, health insurance, holiday and vacation pay. In essence, Delta Roofing employees are treated like family and not just employees, which equates to a better product for the customer.
Our purpose is to give the client the very most and best value for your dollar possible, and the best service regardless of cost. Our promise to you is to treat you the best you’ve ever been treated by any roofing company.
What’s the most exciting recent highlight for your business?
Even thru the Covid meltdown happening throughout the country, we have had our two largest growth years ever!
Where do you hope to see your business in 12 months?
I would like to see us have a few more good team members that can help us continue to support the growth that we’ve had. I would like for us to continue to have small growth and continue to strive to be the best in the business.
What advice would you offer to someone starting their own small business?
First thing is to ALWAYS do the right thing. Even if it costs you, do the right thing. I feel that is one thing that society has fallen away from and has moved from that main principle to “bottom line” only. Take care of the customer and they will take care of you.
Also, don’t try and “get everything” as no company can handle “everything,” but grow slowly to build a solid foundation for the company. Stay conservative with spending so you are more able to roll with the ups and downs.
