OUR PEOPLE: Peak Experience, Integrity and
Can-Do Responsiveness

Companies don’t install your roofs, people do. At E.D. Chase, we take pride in the caliber of our employees: the project managers, customer support teams, roofing technicians and crews who are professional, well-trained and highly responsive.

Many of our technicians and installers have worked with us for years, and have literally hundreds of years of roofing experience between them. Their support of critical safety protocols keeps our incident rates among the lowest in the roofing industry, and their professional site manners and work ethic are second to none.

E.D. Chase is a proud supporter of the communities and the causes our employees care about, including Habitat for Humanity, Parent Connection, Family Services and the Conservation Club.

E.D. Chase foremen have a combined experience of 240 years of roofing experience. Our foremen have been at E.D. Chase for an average of 18 years. Their motto?

“Work hard, stay safe and be proud of what you accomplish”!
