When I was about 13 years old, I started helping my dad with his construction company by knocking on doors and setting up appointments for his small siding and window company in Aurora, CO. Imagine, being a young kid and having multiple doors slammed in your face, people yelling at you to get off their property, and hearing the word “no” 50-100 times a day. Would have been tough for average kids, but not me. I’ve always been determined to succeed and become successful. When others would have given up, I became more encouraged. More determined. Someone out there needed my help and I was going to find them. If I didn’t, we wouldn’t eat.
But despite the struggles of the “door to door” salesmen, this wasn’t even the worst part. What got to me the most was hearing about my neighbor who had thousands of dollars stolen from them by a “CON”-tractor. Or about hearing about another neighbor whose insurance company wouldn’t pay for the storm damage their property suffered a few weeks before but was more than happy to collect a premium payment. Over the years, I heard story after story like these and finally said enough is enough!
From the ashes of an untrustworthy, discombobulated industry, myself and Jonathan Friesen created NexGen Roofing & Exteriors with the goal of effectively representing clients by ensuring they receive their full and fair benefits from their insurance carrier and to provide open, transparent, high quality construction. We needed to combat the greedy insurance companies and fend off the incompetent, untrustworthy roofing contractors who may or may not be in business next year. We started NexGen to not only even the playing field, but to change the game entirely.
Today, we’ve helped thousands of customers settle claims more efficiently and faster than anyone else in the industry. We don’t work WITH your insurance company; we tackle them head on. With NexGen, you get the biggest bang for your deductible and the roof replacement you deserve. For over 20 years, I’ve been committed to correcting the stigma in our industry and one day my children may or may not do the same, but at least I get to teach them to do what’s right, advocate for their customer 100%, and always fulfill a promise.
