NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Oct. 19, 2015) – Roofing Contractor Magazine has named Nashville-based Tim Leeper Roofing its 2015 Residential Roofing Contractor of the Year. The company was chosen out of 150 nominations nationwide.

Roofing Contractor’s annual award is highly coveted and reserved for top-tier contractors who achieve and deliver results for their customers above and beyond expectations.

“Our decision was difficult, but Tim Leeper stood out because of his integrity, entrepreneurial spirit and hard-earned reputation for quality work and valuing his customers,” said Roofing Contractor Publisher Jill Bloom. “Throughout the selection process, we were impressed by Tim’s innovative approach to marketing his business, his tireless drive to continuously improve and a strong commitment to give back to the greater Nashville community.”

The magazine’s team reviews each entry, narrows the field down to finalists and then selects winners, which are announced at the conclusion of its annual Best of Success Conference in Phoenix, Ariz.

IKO Roofing Products representative John DeRosa said he nominated Tim Leeper Roofing because of the company’s integrity, outside-the-box thinking and its community minded approach to business.

Founder Tim Leeper received the Residential Roofing Contractor of the Year award last month at the magazine’s 11th annual Best of Success

“It is an honor to be nominated, much less chosen, as the Residential Roofing Contractor of the Year,” Leeper said. “This award validates the hard work our team puts in year after year and the way we sincerely appreciate our customers. But what means the most to me is that this award was given by a group of peers who know great roofing companies from average ones.”

Tim Leeper Roofing has been endorsed by Dave Ramsey, Ralph Bristol and Bobby Bones, among others. Its community and charitable work include being an annual golf tournament sponsor for the Tennessee Baptist Children’s Home, where Leeper is a board member.
