/ OUR founder

Daniel Wagenmaker

The people working on your home should feel like trusted friends. Daniel Wagenmaker is the founder of Reliance Roof Troop, a military man, a family man, and contributor to his community. 

Daniel comes from both a construction and military background. He uses both experiences to effectively run Reliance Roof Troop. His construction background began as a kid, shoveling dirt for his Grandpa - a General Contractor. He spent his summers learning anything from framing to concrete. He operated bulldozers and excavators for the Army Corps of Engineers while in college. He later worked for a roofing and siding company doing Repairs, Estimating, Project Managing, and assisting with upper level operations over several years.

Daniel enlisted in the Army National Guard at the age of 17 and commissioned as an Infantry Officer in 2013. He specialized in Reconnaissance & Surveillance and graduated from the United States Army Ranger School. The construction background has given Daniel the confidence to become the subject matter expert when it comes to Roofing & Siding. He is always up for a challenge and constantly finds ways to keep improving!

Though Reliance Roof Troop and the military shape his life, being a husband and father is his number one calling. He enjoys family bike rides, princess play dates, and reading to his adorable girls. Though company work can be demanding, he ensures every facet of his life gets the attention it deserves.

Ongoing Education for Employees

Though employees aren’t the “fresh meat” Daniel typically trains in the army, he’s keen to help the Reliance Roof Troop team be the absolute best. Daniel trains all of his employees personally. At Reliance Roof Troop, it’s about finding the right people with the right work ethic who uphold the company’s reputation as helpful, informative experts in the roofing and siding industry. The success of Reliance Roof Troop comes down to training employees who live up to the company’s reputation in every small interaction with customers. 

At Reliance Roof Troop, we are not your typical "roofer near me". We challenge the standards, even our own. Our employees are critical thinkers. They see the big picture and apply their critical thinking to make the right recommendations to our customers. We encourage our team to challenge our Standard Operating Procedures to give our customers the best possible outcomes.

The Importance of Educating Our Clients

We know we offer amazing service and premium results for our clients. We put in the effort to educate our clients and that really sets us apart from other companies.
In most cases, our customers are not roofing experts. We want our customers to know what they’re paying for and how we fix it. We want to earn your trust and give you peace of mind knowing that we have a good group with their best interests at heart. We want you to know we’re a top-notch roofing company, not just think we’re a good roofing company.

Many customers don’t know what to look for in a shingle and rely on the professional to tell them what’s best. Part of our education is showing you examples of shingles and explaining the differences between them. You’ll be versed in the qualities of a good shingle and get to hold the samples in your hands to see exactly what we’re talking about. For comparison’s sake, we’ll show you a sample of a standard shingle compared to a premium shingle. In the end, the product speaks for itself. 

Giving our clients more knowledge helps them make a better decision and feel more comfortable making that decision. When you call us out to your place for an estimate, we’ll outline all your options, answer your questions, and leave you with our informative brochures to review. You will be able to make an informed decision and feel confident about it after meeting with our representatives.
