Founder & President

Michael Gray, Founder & President of AmeriPro Roofing, has a spirit of always wanting to have continuous improvements. He constantly preaches to his team to avoid expecting what they don’t inspect. “When you have the mentality to not assume processes and systems are going as you may have planned then you are on a path to continuous improvements,” says Michael. “In business from time to time you can expect obstacles and challenges to arise but constantly improving your processes makes those obstacles and challenges much easier to work through.”

As a leader, Michael’s best motivation is watching his team succeed. For the pioneering leader, it is very motivating to work with someone on forwarding their career path. . “Whenever we bring on a new team member, I make sure they know the #1 rule is to have fun! When being a leader if you can get your team to have fun first and foremost it feels like less of a job or “work,” it feels more like a lifestyle that is very motivating and enjoyable,” asserts Michael.

“This is how you gain success. But it is not easy, you have to keep trying until you do. For me I wouldn’t say I found success at a specific time, it was more a body of work.”

Michael believes one can find success when one realizes they never lose or fail but either succeed or learn. With this brilliant attitude, Michael has been taking his company to new heights and garnering numerous awards and accomplishments.

Unique Solutions

In today’s world, it is a common misconception that you replace your roof, which will last 20-30 years with no maintenance. That misconception couldn’t be further from the truth. If you read most roofing manufacturers’ warranties, they will regularly tell you to have your roof inspected and maintained as needed. Most insurance policies will also tell you that after wind or hailstorms, you should also have your roof inspected. Regular roof inspections are much more commonplace in multi-family and commercial markets. In those markets, the ownership will last for a much longer time, and it’s taken into consideration to have regular inspections and maintenance. In the residential market, the average homeowner moves every 5-7 years, so they often don’t see the adverse effects of neglecting their roof. Many residential roofers are looking to add inspection and maintenance programs to extend the life of their roofs. AmeriPro Roofing company currently offers annual roof inspections on every roof we replace.
