Building Trust, Installing Pride
Vesel Contractors, southeastern Wisconsin’s experts in roofing and general contracting, brings passion and knowledge to the local construction industry
The first thing Eric Vesel, co-owner of Vesel Contractors, will tell you is that his is a “local” company. Since 2004, in fact, Eric and Vesel Contractors have been servicing his hometown region of southeastern Wisconsin. Along with his wife, Christina, Eric has built his company on passion, expertise and trust.
Eric, who has more than 25 years of experience in the industry, credits an intimate market knowledge with his company’s success. He says, “We are experts in roofing, siding, window installation, home remodeling, home construction and light commercial work. But we’re so much more. We are the neighbors you see walking the block, and we’re the friends you see in the carpool lane.”
With a team of fully trained and certified carpenters, installers and technicians, Vesel Contractors has earned the respect and loyalty of homeowners and commercial customers alike.
The Move Toward Metal
Recently, the company has seen an emerging trend of metal roofing projects in the region, thanks in part to the longevity and warranty advantages afforded by metal panels in addition to their modern, trendy aesthetic.
Eric shares, “We’re seeing more and more local homeowners and businesses looking to do metal roofs—and we’re ready to accommodate the demand. We’ve been installing a lot of metal standing seam roofs—the type you think of when you picture an old tin roof. This is a popular and clean looking choice where the seams can be finished in different styles and configurations, and the panels have many options for width.”
Vesel Contractors is also seeing an uptick in craftsman-style metal roof installations, where instead of using a bunch of accessories, they custom make and use accessories specific to the application.
Christina adds, “Metal roofing is more of a once-and-done project vs. doing it every 20 or 30 years. Installing a metal roof is a lifetime commitment to your home or business. Plus, the region where we are located is more rural so we’re seeing more farm owners going with steel on the roofs. And we’re installing it more in the city, too. It’s coming everywhere.”
Trust, Pride and Personal Service
As for the business philosophy that has allowed Vesel Contractors to thrive, Eric remarks that it’s all about the specific needs of the customer. He says, “We live by our motto: ‘Building trust, installing pride.’ I treat each person or company like an individual. Our customers have a one-on-one with me as the owner; they’re not getting a salesperson. I try to lead them in a good direction, what I would do for my own home. It’s not just to sell something. People are making decisions they’re not used to doing every day, so you need to have the knowledge and experience on how to help them make good choices for what they’re investing in for their home or business.”
