Making roofs built to last in the Windy City, Champion Roofing Inc. serves residential and commercial clients.ROOFING – DONE WELL – can be a great business. It’s unlikely that roof repairs ever will become a thing of the past, and every new structure needs a solid and, hopefully, attractive roof overhead.

But it’s also rewarding, Champion Roofing Inc. owner Harry Friedman says.

“I enjoy roofing because you have a sense of satisfaction that you helped somebody in their time of need,” he says. Thank-you notes he receives from clients are a point of pride for the suburban Chicago contractor, a sign that their experience and dedication to getting a job done the right way are worthwhile.

Tackling major industrial and commercial projects in Springfield, Missouri, Queen City Roofing sets a high bar.THE ROOFING INDUSTRY can be a crowded place. Barriers to entry are relatively low – allowing for “marginal” contractors who work out of a single truck or do not carry proper insurance to get a start – but there’s good pro t to be made if a legitimate company can stand out.

And Queen City Roofng does.

With 86 years in business, it has an established reputation on its side, and – more importantly, owner Larry Stock says – the crews there have a dedication that Stock has worked hard to instill.

“The major difference from our competitors is that we’ve been able to create a culture here where the guys in the  eld genuinely care and take pride in what they do,” he says.
