Learn about what makes Vanguard great from the people who make it that way!

The first day on the job for me was a learning experience. Service to the customer is what the message passed along was. It was then and still is now. What the management taught and emphasized over and over was the strength of the relationship you build by focusing on the needs of the individual customers and what you, as a company, need to do to make sure your company is the one they call when a problem develops.Rodney Rouse, Senior Estimator
Working for Vanguard has been a lifetime of client satisfaction, integrity, and personal growth. The founding beliefs of family, commitment, and excellence remain in place today and are the cornerstone of our company. Over the years being promoted from bookkeeper to office manager to Operations Manager, I have seen these fundamental beliefs allow Vanguard to grow into the commercial, industrial, and institutional roofing company we are today.Jo-Ann Longobardi, Operations Manager
Never would I have imagined I would love this profession as much as I do. I wake up every morning, eager to face new challenges with fresh insight into solving our customer’s roofing problems. Thinking outside the box is a gratifying experience. We have achieved a role of leadership through our integration of new technology, including aerial imagery, Infra-Red Scans, and moisture analysis. The solution we bring to every roofing obstacle, plus the value we bring to each project, is highly regarded by our many customers.Frank Z. Algier, Quality Control Manager
My personal goal is to Be Deliberate in Every Moment, which I believe has enabled me to be successful and learn different operations of Vanguard. I believe that due to our founding beliefs remaining our top priority today, Vanguard remains viable, strong, and growing. Vanguard has achieved this milestone through the hard work and dedication of our associates and our culture of customer service that exists throughout the entire organization.
