Labor Day Appreciation
From the roofer standing atop a house hammering in the hot sun, to the carpenter double checking her measurement before sawing the board, to the landscaper planting bushes in the yard, we pause this Labor Day to say thank you for all the hard work.
History and Celebration
Initially the different trade union all celebrated their worker on different days, so in 1894 the federal government consolidated the holiday and made it the first Monday in September. It marks the end of summer and begins the transition to autumn and for all the outdoor trades-workers in North Carolina the promise of cooler temperatures on the horizon. The Labor Day Weekend is often celebrated by fall festivals and runs for charity. It also signal final trips to the lake, beach, or camping as kids return to school.
Honoring the Hard Workers
Patriot Roofing appreciates the hard work of all the men and women who show up every day and work long hours in all kind of weather. As our owner Stephanie often says, “we can guarantee the high-quality of our work only because they focus on doing it right the first time”. Labor Day honors the contributions to the economic might and framework of America made by workers. Laborers and their families are a key part of America’s strength. It is through the reliability of an exceptional team of employees and subcontractors that Patriot Roofing has become one of North Carolina’s premier roofing and remodeling companies.
It’s the People For Us
Wener Navarro, the leader our Asphalt Roofing Team has a terrific perspective on the work we do at Patriot Roofing. “I love roofing! I feel blessed to wake up every day and be able to support my family… I immediately see the results of my team’s hard work.” The key to his success as our team leader is to “always bring a positive attitude with you.” And Wener’s attitude is incredible. After 5 days of 100º heat, he will still have a smile on is face and a funny story to tell. Safety, fun, and caring for the team are staples of his leadership.
The head of our Siding, Windows, and Doors crew, Michael Johnston is a true craftsman that loves what he does. Our work in the historic homes of Wilmington and across eastern North Carolina is bolstered by his craftsmanship and eye for detail.
Patriot is Quality Because of Quality People
The men and women who make up Patriot Roofing care about the quality of their work, just like the fabled craftsmen of a time gone by. They, like millions of others that we honor on Labor Day, make America the great country that it is. They build our houses, run our factories, and teach our children. America would be a different place without their contribution. Today, and on all of the other days of the year, our Patriot Roofing family honors the hard workers across our country!
