American Roofing President Rick Steinrock and his son

They [The Harding Shymanski Team] demonstrate a genuine interest and caring approach to serving American Roofing and Metal and its family-owners. In addition, and perhaps most importantly, they have been of extraordinary help in developing and executing our company’s succession and transition plan including getting into the weeds of some of the relational issues we have been working through in our generational transfer of ownership.”
