Tennessee Roofer James Kenton Explains Why His Business Thrived During the Housing Crisis
The independent roofing contractor has credited retrofitting for getting him through difficult times.
Mt. Juliet, TN, 2nd June 2023, ZEX PR WIRE, James Kenton worked at a metal roofing company for 15 years before upping sticks and moving to Tennessee. He saw his former employer through the toughest times, which included the 2008 subprime mortgage crisis, during which many roofing businesses went under due to predatory lending, collapsing financial markets, and a global recession.
Kenton’s former employer didn’t make it through that tumultuous time relatively intact; it emerged as the industry leader in metal roofing solutions due to its cost-effective retrofitting solutions.
After winning several accolades and endless praise, Kenton moved to Nashville, Tennessee, and started working in a leadership role at yet another metal roofing firm. Many years later, a milder version of the 2008 housing crisis reoccurred, fueled by the global pandemic. Two years since that crisis, things appear the same for James Kenton Tennessee Metal Roofing, where others struggle.
“Recent events have proven that our current business model can survive any hardship,” said a spokesperson for the company. “As long as James is leading projects, we can do anything. His dedication to educating people about metal roofs despite their preference for traditional asphalt shingle roofs is unparalleled. Not only that, he has continued to stand by the practice of retrofitting metal roofs, giving his business access to customers and businesses catering to all kinds of residential properties.”
Roof retrofitting is an age-old practice of installing new roofs without removing the existing roof to save on costs. Instead of compromising the existing roof, retrofitting makes it stronger and extends its life span by an average of 50 years.
Kenton recommends retrofitting metal roofs because they can last 50 to 70 years with basic maintenance. The roofer has assumed a managerial role at his current place of employment, overseeing projects, providing estimates, managing accounts, and scheduling operations to ensure maximum customer satisfaction.
