Comments Off on Exciting Progress at the Cascade County Courthouse in Montana

Comments Off on We are Passionate About Our Safety Program, and Our Record Shows it
When choosing a roofing contractor, not every customer evaluates their safety record and training program. They should.
The lack of safety protocols and worker training on a roofing project can result in severe injury and/or other losses due to fire, building damage or loss of use. This leads to litigation that can go on for years, and expenses that could have been avoided if a culture of safety was instilled in every worker.
At Renaissance Roofing, we understand the inherent dangers of our business and are very proud of our safety record. We remind our customers that past performance is the best indicator of future results, and stand behind our 25-year history of safe roof restorations. We are committed to our training program, our use of personal protection equipment (PPE), fire prevention equipment, and fall protection gear.
