He started his career in residential new construction and soon thereafter developed a passion for blueprint takeoffs and estimating. Wade served as an estimator, consultant, and project manager with a team that built hundreds of residential and commercial buildings in the early 2000s. Wade’s expertise at deciphering complex drawings transferred to increase his knowledge of on-site construction methods.

Wade spent the following eight years as a residential and commercial materials expert in fields like roofing, framing, and building envelope weatherization.

Wade began applying his construction expertise as the General Manager of one of the largest roofing companies in the Midwest. He oversaw a team of 40+ employees and in that time supervised the successful installation of over 3000 roofs. Wade’s particular specialty is in commercial roofing materials and applications. He has a unique mix of experience in roofing materials, applications and has a vast knowledge of insurance policy coverage applications. With those skills, Wade can accurately assess the damage that many buildings sustain and immediately understand the coverage that should be applied.
