Community service is a cornerstone for Ferguson Roofing

Brackets for Good is proud to announce Ferguson Roofing as a divisional sponsor of the 2016 tournament in St. Louis.

Ferguson Roofing has a history of supporting community, customers and staff through various efforts.

“Our mission is to protect your residential or commercial property through high-quality workmanship, optimal product selection, industry leading warranties and excellent customer service while upholding the reputation and values we have built upon for 75 years.”

 
Ferguson Roofing is a proud member of the Northwest Chamber of Commerce, St. Charles Chamber of Commerce and the Fairview Heights Chamber of Commerce. We are very happy for the opportunity to support local businesses, schools and charities in the Greater St. Louis and metro East Illinois areas. Ferguson is also involved in many golf tournament, trivia, and gala sponsorships to support causes such diabetes, children’s dental care, education and shelter for disadvantaged children and numerous other foundations.

 

We are evolving our philanthropic strategy to better leverage our resources, both financially and with our team. We are applying the same acumen to our corporate philanthropy that we do to our general business strategy. Our entire staff is included in this process as philanthropy becomes a more actionable and personal piece of our team culture.

 

Innovation continues to thrive with the third generation now operating the business. For brothers Brett and Jason, green is not a color at Ferguson Roofing, it’s a focus and passion. The “Think Green” process is applied on every front. Ferguson investigates and tests the newest environmentally sound products and techniques, often before they even hit the market. Additionally, Ferguson is a devout recycler – from old shingles at the job site to copier paper in the office.

 

Customer service is and always has been a cornerstone in the success of Ferguson Roofing. Yet there is another “C” service that we hold important: Community service. After all, we live here in Greater St. Louis and metro east Illinois with our co-workers, friends and family. We like to help make it a better place.”

 

What is next on the horizon for Ferguson Roofing? There are projects being developed all of the time. Whatever it is, the safe bet is it will incorporate honorable business practices with innovative, cutting-edge technology and products and quite possibly a Shupp on-site skippering the project.
