Your Roofing Team
Meet "Rod the Roofer"
My name is Rod Ford and I’m the Owner/Contractor of Blue Shoe Roofing Co.
I’d like to tell you a little about myself and my philosophy about why I started Blue Shoe Roofing.
I am originally from Pennsylvania, to be exact, Philadelphia, the City of Brotherly Love. I moved to Southern California in August of 1977 and brought that brotherly love right along with me! I began in the roofing industry in September 1978.
Before launching Blue Shoe Roofing in 2002 I spent 22 years working for several large, corporate roofing contracting firms in both L.A. and Orange County gaining a wealth of valuable experience.
Unfortunately, in working with large firms, I had very little control as to how the projects were completed with regard to my customers.
So when I began Blue Shoe Roofing, I decided that my business would be based on simple, old-fashioned customer service. I just simply wanted to provide basic, no-nonsense service to homeowners, building owners, realtor and property management companies.
Now a lot of other companies will try to sell you services that you don’t need. I won’t! Blue Shoe believes in fixing your roofing problems right the first time! You contact us to fix your roofing problem, and that’s what we’ll do.
When I started Blue Shoe Roofing, I didn’t have a lot of money for advertising. Yet slowly but surely, I built business on referral and word of mouth. For the first 10 years, all of our business was by word of mouth. My mission is to make every effort to keep you satisfied and happy with our work so you can tell your friends, neighbors, family and business associates. I believe in the old saying, “a happy customer will tell his friends, an unhappy customer will tell the world.”
