      I dont mean to be so off topic but does anybody know of a tool to get back into an instagram account?
      I was dumb forgot my password. I would love any assistance you can give me

    This guy seems pretty cool. I think if you don’t try and get roofs where there’s no legit storm damage you waste less time and can make up the difference on actually damaged roofs. That of course requires sales guys that know their stuff not randos looking for another sales job pointing at blisters instead of hail.

    Hi Dmitry! I have been in Roofing Sales for a bit and I’ve watched and internalized a tremendous amount of your videos! There is Great admiration as well as appreciation from me to the fact that you are raising the standards for the construction industry. I am thinking about moving to Texas in the next year or so and wanted to research about 4-8 Roofing companies in Texas where there is integrity and longevity for a career. The location of Texas doesn’t matter so much I just wanted your opinion of the top companies to look into to potentially interview for? @roofinginsights
