Roof Menders, Inc, is located in Conshohocken, PA. The owner, Miriam Cunningham, and her crew headed by Lester Mobley of Charlotte, NC, work on projects in the areas represented on our Portfolio Page.
Over several decades, our work has evolved as liquid roofing products improved. At present, we are known for applying coating-style systems to the niche called old metal roofing. Originally we started with white acrylic reroofing systems in the commercial field.
Both owner and crew chief began working on commercial roofing projects using the white acrylics as an integral part of the system to create cool roofs. Commercial building owners quickly understood the economic value of a white roof over black surfaces.
After the turn of the century, urban centers with rowhouses began to appreciate the favorable impact of white roofing on “heat island” temperatures. For example, in 2003 in Baltimore, MD, Roof Menders applied the first cool roofs to rowhouses.
Just a decade later, as Baltimore searches for methods to achieve success with carbon imprint requirements, white roofs are automatically included in any plans.
Old Metal Roofing Projects
When This Old House introduced the concept of applying acrylics as a method to preserve old metal roofing, Lester’s artistic talent discovered an outlet for his abilities. And this owner happily combined roofing work with her interest in history. Since 2000, vintage metal restoration work has become our signature in six states.
At some point, embossed tin shingle owners started calling; work expanded into this new “old” field, a truly small niche populated with owners dedicated to preserving their historic gem.
Roof Menders vs R. Menders
As required by Pennsylvania law, the company of Roof Menders, Inc., based in Conshohocken, PA, operates under the required fictious name of R MENDERS INC within the commonwealth. All PA proposals, business cards, and stationery state this fictious name. To contact the owner, call 267-283-6929-a phone number dedicated to PA calls.
The reason for the fictious name is the following: my Conshohocken company is incorporated in Delaware, not Pennsylvania. Another PA roofing company, who advertises work different than this owner’s expertise, is entitled to the name of Roof Menders inside the commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
