In June, Roofing & Exteriors—in partnership with the International Roofing Expo and sponsored by SRS Distribution—unveiled the 2022 Power Players. This honor recognizes 50 of the top roofing and exteriors contracting companies modeling business practices and company values that produce success.

But Power Players is much more than simply another industry recognition program. The companies selected as part of the inaugural Power Players group embody key business drivers—beyond annual income—that roofing and exterior executives have said time and again really matter. These include:

• Community engagement

• Social media

• Innovation and growth

• Diversity

• Technology

• Company culture

• Competitive advantage

Acknowledgement of the Power Players’ Accomplishments

To recognize this achievement at the 2023 IRE, the 2022 Power Players received complimentary Super Passes for attendees from their companies, VIP registration access and a special logo included on their attendee badges.

“We introduced this award program to provide a platform that brings added visibility to the industry’s highest achieving and emergent companies to watch within the roofing and exteriors sector,” said Rachel Williams, R&E special projects editor. “We could not be more excited to announce the 50 companies who demonstrate leadership that drives business and innovation forward.”

These Power Players serve as shining lights for other companies who may be seeking guidance and inspiration during turbulent times or who are looking to level up their own business.

How do you attract employees during the Great Resignation? How do you address ongoing supply chain and inflationary pressures? How do you innovate and grow amid an ever-changing technological landscape of apps and social media? This group of Power Players have found answers to those questions and more, and they’ve maintained top-notch customer service in the process.

As companies do need to make money to be successful, annual income was included as one factor of many used to select the Power Players. Because of this, you’ll see some familiar names on the list, including some of the industry’s highest-earning companies, such as Tecta America and CentiMark.

But whether a company takes in close to a billion in annual revenue or much less, the R&E team reviewed them using the same company drivers that truly distinguish Power Players from others in the industry.

Ultimately, the 2022 Power Players capture a variety of vital ingredients to success—elements that often have remained hidden behind the scenes until now. R&E was impressed by the creativity, savvy, generosity and tenacity of these top roofing and exterior companies—the very stuff that powers the best of this industry.
