Title: Site Manager - Sales

James McDermott from Brown Roofing Company, Inc.
Hi I'm Jim McDermott
 
You'll see me in one of the Red --Brown Roofing --Pickup Trucks . The ones with the ladders on the racks in the back. We need the ladders so that we can inspect your roof, siding , and gutters. A quote for a roof replacement or repair often requires the need for us to inspect by walking and measuring the roof (it helps uncover underlying conditions.)
 
If you have  scheduled an appointment for a quote either  (Ed Griffin, or myself Jim McDermott)  will be out to meet with you.
Besides working on roofs I love to cook ask me about my favorites or my two daughters favorites.
 
Hope to see you soon
 
Jim

              We had our roof inspected and instead of telling us yes you need a new roof they advised us honestly that we had maybe another five years left the life of our roof. When it is time to get a new roof we will be sure to call them.

    Lote R. of Bridgeport, CT

    Customer Testimonial

              Jim the salesman was very helpful with his knowledge and suggestion for shingle color. The crew was professional and very hard working, when the work was completed and they left for the day you couldn't tell they had even come with the thorough cleaning job. Very pleased with the suggested color, it accents the colors of my house very well.
