Kalkreuth Roofing rising to top

WHEELING-Kalkreuth Roofing & Sheet Metal is proud to announce it is now ranked the third largest roofing company in the nation, according to the October 2011 issue of Engineering News Record (ENR).

Each year, ENR publishes a list of the “Top 600 Specialty Contractors” which also includes lists of top 20 firms by industry. This year, Kalkreuth Roofing & Sheet Metal is enjoying a new position on the list of the nation’s “Top 20 Firms in Roofing for 2010,” up three places from its rank of sixth in 2009.

This jump was spurred by a growth of 18 percent, with 2010 revenue totaling $74.1 million. In the overall “Top 600 Specialty Contractors for 2010” list,

Kalkreuth ranked 207 in the nation, an impressive 46-place jump from 2009.

While it was a year of growth for Kalkreuth, not all contractors are finding the same success in the tumultuous economy. Of the 515 firms on this year’s Top 600 who also submitted surveys last year, fewer than half -41.6 percent- showed an increase in revenue from 2009-10.

“For us, there is no ‘secret’ to our success or growth. We can attribute it directly to the hard work and dedication exhibited by our employees in the office and in the field. We know our workers will give our customers the best experience and the highest quality of work possible,” said John Kalkreuth, president of Kalkreuth Roofing & Sheet Metal.

Kalkreuth Roofing & Sheet Metal serves the Eastern United States as an exterior envelope contractor and has done so since 1920. Kalkreuth’s corporate headquarters is located in Wheeling. The company also has branches in Frederick, Md., Columbus, Ohio, and Lexington, Ky.
