Glenn Martin – Service Manager

Glenn Martin Years in Business: 30 Years

Years in Florida: 50 Years

Hobbies: Fishing! Loves to fish in the many fishing tournaments around SW Florida!

Keys to Success: Continues to plug away and get things done quickly and efficiently!

Quote: “Good work ain’t cheap…Cheap work ain’t good!”

Background: Glenn’s stepfather was a property manager who asked if there were any positions open at Ad-Ler Roofing as Glenn was living on the east coast of Florida going to Vo-Tech and working part time roofing to make extra money. He interviewed with Eddie Currier and was hired to start working as a roofer!

Glenn was developed and home-grown with Ad-Ler. With Ad-Ler Glenn started out on the roof and with his willingness to listen, take responsibility and his knowledge, he quickly became a crew chief and then a supervisor.

Glenn is excellent of not only holding his people accountable but communicating with his service crews. You always know where you stand with Glenn.

While leading his service teams, Glenn also does the estimates and goes out to meet with the homeowners who are in need of repairs or a reroof. Even though Glenn is an excellent salesperson, he is out there to inform the customer of what their best options are for their home and family, not to sell them just any service.

What’s really great about the job he does as an estimator is the many years experience that he has had on the roof, he knows exactly what to look for, recognizes the true problems and offers the best solutions to take care of the customers roofing needs! As a matter of fact, when customers call in for repairs many of them ask for Glenn as they remembered him putting on their roof years ago!

Glenn is an integral part of the Ad-Ler team and our continued success. There is no one better in the industry to care for your roof!
