Meet Chris Barwick – Answer Me This! Winner

Construction Solutions Chris Barwick
December 10, 2021 at 9:00 a.m.

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 our most popular giveaways is sponsored by Gibraltar Building Accessories as part of their ‘Construction Solutions’ campaign designed to supply feedback from contractors to help them continue to innovate. We think it’s popular because it is so easy to participate. Simply answer one simple question and you’ll be entered into a drawing for a prize. If selected as the winner, you’ll get your choice of a free pizza, an RCS Box of Love or a box of donuts.

Chris Barwick, a territory manager with SRS Distribution in Memphis, Tennessee, was a recent winner of an RCS Box of Love and we had the chance to chat and learn more about his roofing background. It turns out his roofing blood runs deep, having been in the industry for 30 years.  

“I was a roofing contractor for 28 years,” said Chris. “I started out roofing houses by myself for builders and then realized I could hire people to do it and I grew my company from there.”  

Chris decided to retire from his contracting business three years ago, but he didn’t retire completely and became a territory manage with SRS Distribution. He spends a lot of time not only selling materials to contractors but educating the younger, new roofing contractors who are just starting out.  

“I show people the differences in materials and what would work better for different jobs,” said Chris. 

He really enjoys his job as territory manager and doesn’t miss his contractor days of running crews or dealing with the little headaches that come with the job. His focus now is on making sure the materials get where they need to be when they are supposed to be there.   

He shared that he’s been a regular visitor to RoofersCoffeeShop® where he keeps up to date on what’s new in the industry and he also enjoys seeing what people are talking about in the forum.  

When he’s not working, Chris enjoys spending time with his three grandchildren and participating in shooting sports using shotguns, rifles and pistols.  

By participating in the Answer Me This! survey, you are elevating the industry by helping Construction Solutions provide the best products, programs and experiences to contractors.
