News and Views: Which Direction?
Newsletter – Tuesday, June 1, 2021
I’m guessing you and I have a lot in common. For one thing, we are in the Insurance Business! I was also an SOB (son of the boss). But when a decision had to be made about my career path, I had two family businesses to choose from. During school breaks, I had been working for the roofing company my older brothers had started. I was literally the gopher. Doing that kind of work, (long days in all types of weather), made the decision to follow in my father’s footsteps a little easier – roofing was hard! It has been over 40 years since I made the best decision of my life (well, next to marrying my wife)! I wasn’t at it for very long when I discovered the truth about insurance; all the best people work in this industry!
Don’t get me wrong. I love roofers! Aside from that and the winters off, I’m pretty glad I chose to insure roofers rather than be one!
Tuscano loves to write roofing companies and other contractors. We understand the business, the operations, and the exposures. We can talk shingles, hot tar, or torch down rubber, and we’ll help you navigate the right coverage and market options for your client. We’ve been writing roofing operations since the day we opened our doors. Of course we have; years ago we wrote the insurance on the fledgling family roofing company! So, whether you have a start-up operation or a well-established company, Tuscano has the insurance solution.
It’s good to see roofers on roofs and diners in restaurants, don’t you agree? As the dining and hospitality business picks up, remember to give our hospitality team a call for anything related to food or beverage service. This is a service-oriented business so be sure to call Tuscano, your customer service-oriented broker.
If you are wondering about the ‘other’ family business, well they are doing exceptionally well. They have grown to be one of the largest commercial roofers in western PA, but the funny thing is they too are a customer-centric operation. I guess Bill Tuscano knew a thing or two about building a business and raising sons!
Speaking of our business, this year we are bringing back the Summer Hummer event! Back in the day, Bill Tuscano used to throw an amazing event - the Summer Hummer. Well, we are reviving the past at Seven Springs this year! Save The Date - August 13th :)
