A LETTER TO OUR CLIENTS: THANK YOU

A Letter To Our Clients

When growing a business, entrepreneurs are forewarned that it is going to be hard work. Late nights, sacrifice and less time with significant others. Fortunately at Four Twelve Roofing, we have built a team that takes pride in our work – whether it be laying a row of shingles, sweeping up a driveway or anything that concerns roofing, gutter, siding, skylights, and other property improvement services.

When you take pride in what you do, all the sacrifices fade into the background. And the thing that now brings us the most pride, is completing a project and shaking hands with a satisfied client.

There is a quote that comes to mind, “Far and away the best prize that life has to offer is the chance to work hard at work worth doing.” As we have built this business, we have seen that through our work, we can truly help people. To us, this is work worth doing.

We are writing this letter to let our clients know how much we appreciate them. Serving our clients is what keeps us up late into the night, drives us to deliver a quality product and what allows us to keep doing the thing that we feel most passionately about – being a part of quality construction projects that improve the city of Baltimore.

We look forward to continuing to serve you.

Sincerely,
Shea and Sam

1,000+ HOURS OF LIVING WAGE SALARIES, 2,000+ HOURS OF LOCAL LABOR | Four Twelve Roofing

As part of our project at 1600 Barclay, Four Twelve Roofing set a simple and seemingly attainable goal – to create one full time hire from within our community. Through the first quarter of this project, we have exceeded this goal and created 3, 30+ hour/week positions for young apprentices.

When entering the homebuilding industry, it is hard to find work if you don’t have experience. Under the tutelage of our experienced carpenters and foremen, we have been able to work with our apprentices for the better part of this year – teaching them all facets of homebuilding. Four Twelve self-performs most of our own work, which allowed us the opportunity to train our apprentices in roofing, siding, masonry, framing, interior carpentry and painting.

Four Twelve’s close relationship with the local community has been helpful in making this program succeed. Through our time in Greenmount West, we have gotten to know our neighbors, community leaders and workforce training programs – such as Project JumpStart, a local Baltimore Workforce Development program. These apprenticeship positions have been invaluable to date – providing quality on-the-job training in addition to good paying and reliable work. Here’s to 3 more homes and continuing to build the locally trained, locally sourced laborpool in Greenmount West and Baltimore.
