Residential | JOE HALL ROOFING Things Are A Looking Up JOE HALL ROOFING SAYS ITS EXPERIENCE AND DEDICATION MAKE IT A STRONG PRESENCE IN THE DALLAS AREA. BY CHRIS PETERSEN ccording to Joe Hall Roofing President Brett Hall, success in the roofing business has a lot to do with being in the right place at the right time – even if no one else would consider it to be that way. “What makes smaller companies into bigger companies is hailstorms, and massive hailstorms,” Hall says. In that respect, Joe Hall Roofing is fortunate to be based in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex, the nation’s second-best market for storm damage, behind only Oklahoma. However, there’s a lot more to the company’s formula for success than simply being there, and these are the reasons why the company has progressed from being a smaller company to a bigger company to one of the best in the country. The company was founded by Hall’s father, who has been involved in the roofing industry since 1979. According to Hall, his father started the company in 1989 after acquiring the labor side of the roofing supply company he was working for. Today, Joe Hall Roofing is one of the top roofing contractors in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, a market that Hall estimates is crowded with more than 3,000 contractors who either specialize in or offer roofing services. He says the company is one of only a few top-rated roofing contractors on independent evaluation website Angie’s List. Youth and Experience Joe Hall Roofing has risen to this position for a number of reasons, Hall says. Interestingly enough, the company has found a balance between experience and youth that has served it well so far. The experience comes from the large number of tenured employees within the company, including Hall’s father, who he says still puts in an average of 40 hours a week with the company. “He has never left the business, even says its staff brings a unique combination of enthusiasm »Joe Hall RoofingDallas-Fort Worth metroplex.
