Graham Dessert, Roofing101 Owner
Graham Dessert founded Roofing101 in 2008. Graham has an extensive background in construction. He started out painting houses in high school as a summer job, which steadily grew into a career for Graham as he went through college. Graham started his own business in 2001, growing his employee base from 1 to 31 employees. Graham closed his business down in 2004 to work for a national painting company as a franchise developer, where he gained the experience of hiring, training and developing hundreds of employees. During that time, he learned the importance of outstanding customer service and workmanship. Graham has also cultivated a background in roof replacement. Now, Graham has developed the brand Roofing101 with a different standard. His mission is to operate a company that changes the perception of contractors by any customer. Graham’s long term vision is to create a legendary reputation one customer at a time.
Graham is married with five children and resides in Carlsbad California. He enjoys outdoor activities, good music, ideas on how to make the world a better place, and loves a good story.
Giving Back To Our Community
Here at Roofing101, we believe it is our responsibility to give back the communities that support us and ultimately leave the world a better place. We actively seek out opportunities to give back.
We support many local youth sports teams and larger charities including Boys and Girls Club, Food For The Poor, and Special Operations Warrior Foundation.
We also have a non-profit As Many Peaks As Possible (AMPAP), where we complete roofing work for homeowners in need keeping them safe, dry, and happy. Roofing101 is proud of the work we have done so far, and we look forward to future opportunities for community involvement.
