Safety

Without safe worksite practices, valuable employees are at risk, and customers lose trust.  Healthy employees and respecting clients are an unbeatable combination.  National Roof, collectively as a family, embraces a commitment to personal safety through education, prudent application and mandatory execution.

“Safety is a full-time job, don't make it a part-time practice”

Safety pays dividends!

Roofing companies in general are a high risk pool for insurance underwriters.  Whether general liability or workers compensation coverage is considered, these P & L expenses can be quite substantial when safety is a secondary focus, and employee injuries are tolerated.  National Roof success in safety, over the years, has translated directly into significant insurance cost savings.  These savings enable National Roof to continue to offer cost competitive projects to clients that are executed safely and with high quality.
