Graduating from Bluffton University in 1986 with a degree in Communications, his entire career has been spent in the metal roofing industry. Todd has a passion for helping property owners achieve worry-free roofing futures and he believes that one of the greatest obstacles to that is the huge amount of misinformation that exists in the marketplace and is often provided by contractors who are ill-informed. He frequently can be found on the internet answering homeowner questions about roofing and ventilation as well as other construction and “healthy home” topics.
