Meet Answer Me This! Winner Joseph Metrando

Construction Solutions Answer Me This! Joseph Metrando
October 22, 2020

By Karen L. Edwards, RCS Editor.

Each week someone wins a prize for answering a question; next week’s winner could be you!

One of the best things about our contests and giveaways is getting to meet the winners and sharing their stories on our site. This week’s winner of Answer Me This, a fun, single question quiz sponsored by Gibraltar Building Accessories as part of their ‘Construction Solutions’ campaign was Joseph Metrando of JAM Associates, Inc. in Poughkeepsie, New York.  

Typically, we call and interview our winners, but Joseph took it one step further by sending us his roofing story. He shared that he has been roofing for 35 years, having started right after high school at the age of 17. In 1991, he started his own company called JAM Home Improvements where he specialized in residential roofing and siding.

They joined Bird Roofing’s Professional Roofing Contractor Certification program and has been a member since 1995. After meeting Monroe Porter while attending a CertainTeed seminar, Joseph became part of Porter’s PROSULT™ networking program in 2001. This gave Joseph the opportunity to network with other contractor members throughout the United States.

“Through that networking we learned about Duro-Last® Roofing,” writes Joseph. “We became a Duro-Last contractor in 2003 and started transitioning our business from residential roofing to commercial flat and low-slope roofing.”

As part of the transition, Joseph changed the name of his business. “We incorporated our business in 2005 as JAM Associates, Inc,” writes Joseph. "We then joined the North East Roofing Contractors Assocation (NERCA) in 2013.  

To market his new commercial business, he created www.JoeTheRoofer.com and his daughter Tanya worked with a postcard company out of Florida to spread the word about JAM Associates, Inc.

“We joined the National Roofing Contractors Assocation (NRCA) in 2017. Today, we only market and install Duro-Last Roofing systems. We are an Elite Duro-Last Contractor, with multiple awards for sales and quality service, Joseph shared.

JAM Associates in a true family business. Joseph runs the business with his wife Michele and their son Joey manages the field operations. The business motto is "Above all your Roof."
