More about Grove Roofing

Safety

Roofing is an exceptionally dangerous profession. Working from heights, with hazardous materials, in both the heat of summer and the snow and ice of winter, it’s not surprising that it consistently ranks as one of the most dangerous occupations.

Successfully avoiding these perils is a diligent undertaking. Our approach has been to move beyond policy and process to establishing an organizational culture of safety. The results have been definitive with an average EMR that ranks 75% better than the industry (EMR is the common standard for evaluating workplace safety). Our coverages are with A-rated, New York State licensed and admitted carriers with limits that far exceed the typical owner requirements. All employees are background checked and drug tested.

Despite all the training and precautions in the world, any contractor can have an accident. As part of our proposal process our staff will educate you on the many necessities to protect your interests no matter who you ultimately choose to complete your project.

Quality

Historic roofing materials such as slate, tile and copper has always required craftsmanship, and commercial roof systems are no different. The industry has evolved dramatically from the long-standing era of hot asphalt and coal tar. Today’s offerings include a complex array of single or multiple plies, insulation, underlayment and overlayment boards, and adhesives.

Whether it’s reviewing the basics or new system training, education is a fundamental part of our process. Trainings and job inspections are regularly conducted by manufacturer technical representatives and “best practices” are integrated in our everyday process. The results are tangible: a longer lasting roof, less money on repairs, and lesser life cycle cost.

A roof system is only as good as its installation. You can expect the best with Grove Roofing, proudly recognized with the following awards and achievements:

Customer Service

Contractors – as a whole – do not enjoy very good reputations. Everyone seems to have had a frustrating experience at one time or another, with complaints typically involving a lack of communication or not delivering what was expected.

At Grove Roofing we pride ourselves on our honest dealings with customers. We have built many long standing relationships over 14+ decades based on responsiveness to inquiries, candidness with scheduling, and accountability for our actions. Reputations are earned, and we are happy to provide references of satisfied clients and successful projects.

History

In the late 1800’s, John Grove returned to his native Buffalo after a myriad of work experiences, most recently having tried his luck (unsuccessfully) in the California Gold Rush. In 1870 he purchased “Excelsior Roofing”, changing the name to Grove Roofing and setup shop at 86 Main Street (current site of the parking lot in front of First Niagara Center).

In the subsequent 140 years, Grove Roofing’s tradition has spanned five generations and installed virtually every type of roof system on a countless number of western New York institutions. Located in South Buffalo, our organization ranks as one of the largest roofing & sheet metal contractors in the area, with current management having well over 100 years of combined industry experience.

 

 

History notwithstanding, we believe continuing education and constantly striving to improve are vital to a company’s success. Current management industry involvement includes the following:

 

  • Executive Committee, Board of Director & Committee Chair representation for the National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA)
  • Board of Director representation for National Roofing Partners (NRP)
  • Board of Governors representation for the WNY Construction Exchange
  • Authorized Trainers for NRCA’s Certified Torch Applicator (CERTA) Program
