On Friday December 13th, the Palm Beach County Roofing & Sheet Metal Contractors’ Association came together for their annual holiday party. Joe Hart, Vice President of Carpenter’s Roofing & Sheet Metal, was awarded for his years of dedication and experience with the Jim Carr Lifetime Achievement Award for the value he has brought to the Roofing Industry including honesty, integrity & service to the community.
Joe entered the roofing and architectural sheet metal industry at Boys, Inc., South Florida’s oldest roof contracting business originally established in 1923 where he gained his basic training from the founding Kinsey family. Joe strengthened his roofing experience when he joined the Carpenter family business in the spring of 1988. Since 1991 Joe has served as vice president of Carpenter’s Roofing & Sheet Metal Inc. He brings experience in every phase of the roofing and architectural sheet metal contracting including, design, estimating, sales, purchasing and field supervision.
Joe has well over thirty years of experience working with designers, builders and owners of custom homes and commercial buildings, including both new construction and replacement of existing roofs on some of the finest homes and buildings in America including many of the local coastal landmarked homes. Joe has experience in all types of roofing and has significant insight into the history and application process of clay tile, cement tile, natural slate and copper as it pertains to the local unique tropical conditions.
The Palm Beach County Roofing & Sheet Metal Contractors’ Association was established back in 1946. Their association motto is the belief that honesty, integrity, high ideals, and a concern for the welfare of the roofing industry and general public are both desirable and necessary, and will do all in our power to promote these goals.
