Premier Roofing and Exteriors requires all of our Grand Rapids Roofing team members to be licensed and trained. In addition they’re required to pass a full background check and drug screening to insure your family’s safety and trust. Once these qualifications are met, each employee then endures a minimum of 20 hours of in class and field training with Certified instructors with at least 10 years experience. As a family owned company in West Michigan, we take pride in knowing that your Premier estimator has the character and knowledge that we would trust around our own families and homes. Meet our Management Team:
Ryan Balcom – President
With over 14 years of experience in the West Michigan and Grand Rapids Roofing Industry, Ryan brings a unique perspective to both residential and commercial projects. What started out as a summer job to get through High School and College led to a lifelong career in construction. He’s managed thousands of Residential and Commercial roofing projects. Ryan spends the majority of his time now managing commercial projects and commercial accounts, but still enjoys the challenge of designing and managing residential projects.
“It’s been an honor to watch the growth of Premier and specifically the way the West Michigan community has embraced us over the years. We’ve always stood firm on our core principle which is “A Promise Made Is a Promise Kept.” From that belief we’ve implemented policies such as not accepting any money down and being as transparent as possible throughout the project. I truly believe we offer a unique service to homeowners that’s both affordable and rewarding.”
“The landscape of the West Michigan & Grand Rapids Home Improvement industry is one that changes quickly and challenges the most seasoned craftsman, but we’ve made a commitment to serving West Michigan with affordable pricing and quality workmanship.
From the estimate until the final nail is driven, I truly enjoy the process of each project and the unique challenges they present. No two homes in West Michigan are the same, designing and installing quality exterior solutions is where Premier and I exceed.
Please don’t hesitate to call or email me anytime regarding an existing or upcoming project!”
