Meet Our Management Team

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.
