Environmental Roofing Solutions | Contractor Spotlight
Our June Contractor in the Spotlight is Environmental Roofing Solutions from Ewa Beach, Hawaii.
Two years fresh into the roofing industry, Environmental Roofing Solutions sets themselves apart from their competitors by offering energy efficient products as the standard product. The company shares an extensive amount of experience throughout their employees, starting with the owner, Roni Yurong Jr.
It all began in 1987 when Roni started working for his uncle at Tory’s Roofing. Within the first year, he went from installing shingles to estimating and sales. Although he didn’t realize it at the time, Roni had found his true niche! He found his passion in being able to connect with people and help them in any way he can. When he talks about those first years of selling, he says he didn’t really know what he was doing and just “went for it, with confidence.” That confidence and a positive attitude helped him bond with people and most importantly, understand their needs.
Roni tested the waters of distribution sales in 2011, but it wasn’t long before he knew his heart was in Contracting. He had a long list of potential customers wanting him to work on their projects. It was then when he knew it was time to go back into contracting.
In July of 2013, Roni started Environmental Roofing Solutions LLC and his dream of being an entrepreneur began. He hired a crew with experience that also followed his philosophy. “Environment is in all of our surroundings and who we are,” Roni states. Therefore, he focuses on creating a positive environment at work and for his customers, as well as selling products that are good for the environment.
Roni advertises and leads his sales with PABCO® Roofing’s Premier Radiance® and Radiance® Elite roofing shingles. In Hawaii, where energy is a limited resource and cooling homes is a leading energy user, Roni focuses on the benefits of the Premier Radiance shingles as well as PABCO’s quality. He believes that our earth tone colors Pebble and Alder are the best options available.
Roni’s goals for ERS are set towards continued sustainable growth and maintaining a debt free business that grows at a pace he, his employees, and family are comfortable with. Additionally, he is determined to make sure his customers receive the best service possible.
Life outside of work for Roni is spent with his wife and three kids. He also spends his free time reading books and enjoying the music industry, which ultimately lead him to helping produce a Grammy winning song! If that doesn’t keep him busy enough, he also works as an inspirational coach motivating people to reach their goals.
It is inspiring to see Roni’s passion to help individuals pursue their aspirations, whether it is at work with his customers and employees, or outside of work with his family and clients. We are proud to feature Roni, his company, and employees as our featured Contractor in the Spotlight. They are clearly driven to providing exceptional customer service, which we greatly value here at PABCO® Roofing Products.
