July 09, 20241 min read

Ever wondered how two college buddies transformed weekend roofing gigs into a thriving business? Our guest, Tom Stratton, co-owner of Tom and Jerry's Roofing, shares his and his friend Jerry Jerbeck’s incredible 30-year journey. Learn how they've navigated the crowded roofing industry by prioritizing honesty over pushy sales tactics and leveraging their humorous brand. You'll hear all about how their recognizable and cheerful company identity, inspired by the famous cartoon duo, brings joy to their community and sets them apart from the faceless national conglomerates.

But that's not all – Tom also opens up about their heartfelt initiatives to support veterans in Cherokee County through the Mil Vet Community organization and meetup. Discover the themed events and charitable efforts that have made a significant impact, from taco nights to Memorial Day Road marches. Plus, Tom candidly discusses the challenges of dealing with insurance claims, predatory practices in the roofing business, and their advocacy for legislative changes to protect customers. 

And don't miss Tom's emotional recount of his trip to Normandy for the 80th anniversary of D-Day, offering a poignant reflection on patriotism and the enduring legacy of World War II. This episode is a blend of business wisdom, community spirit, and historical reverence you won't want to miss.
