Fields Roof Service is the November R-Club Roofer of the Month

Fields Roof Service November Roofer of the Month
January 7, 2022 at 6:00 p.m.

By Colin Sheehan, RCS Reporter. 

From cold asphalt and torch downs to re-roofing and a modern maintenance program, Fields Roof Service continues to serve the evolving needs of the industry.  

RoofersCoffeeShop® is proud to present the honor of R-Club Roofer of the Month to Brittany Wimbish and Garry Gilmer of Fields Roof Service

Founded in 1957 by Larry Fields, Fields Roof Service was designed to provide customers with long-lasting roof systems, especially within the extreme temperature ranges of Washington state. In particular, the company focused on prolonging the lifespan of existing roofs for school districts and industrial facilities.  

In the late 1970s, Larry passed the business down to Scott Pepper and Tom Gilmer, educators from the Fife, Federal Way and Franklin Pierce school districts. Together they took the company into the 21st Century by expanding their services and developing a dedicated team.  

Garry Gilmer is the third-generation owner of Fields Roof Service and Brittany Wimbish is on track to be part of the fourth generation of ownership. Currently, Brittany oversees operations and administrative tasks for the company, which does a little bit of everything: re-roofing, maintenance systems, roof removals and even torch downs for both residential and commercial properties. 

"Over the past 5 or 10 years we have dedicated a team to doing residential, which has helped us keep more laborers in the summer when we're doing larger commercial projects and that type of thing,” said Garry. 

Garry and Brittany continued by discussing their company’s values, like open communication and a commitment to promoting within the organization. They want every employee to feel that they have a career they own and can cultivate alongside their personal and family life.  

"A lot of our core members and team members have been around anywhere from 10 to 20 years, up to 30 years. We have people that started off roofing in high school and college and now run operations or head up a sales department and work with really great property managers,” said Brittany. “It’s that whole career mindset that this is not just a job, and that we can grow in all aspects of life as well.” 

Listen to the entire podcast to hear more from Garry and Brittany and why Fields Roof Service was the R-Club November Roofer of the Month.
