Meet Mike and Genny Fontaine, owners of Commonwealth Roofing & Siding. Mike and Genny were both born and raised in Northern Virginia and are now balancing their time between Northern Virginia and the Northern Neck, while running the business in both areas and giving as much back to their communities as time and money allows.
Mike knew exactly what he wanted to do when he graduated High School; he wanted to jump out of airplanes. He went on to serve four exciting years in the army with the 82nd Airborne Infantry. After leaving the Army, Mike continued to be drawn to his love of heights.
Over the years, he worked in various aspects of construction, including owning his own flooring company, but never felt that he could marry his love for heights. That is, until a friend asked him to come and try out sales for his roofing company. After his first day climbing roofs, he told Genny that he had found his niche. Mike has never wavered from that sentiment for an instant.
Mike managed the sales division for a large, local roofing company for over 10 years before they closed the residential roofing division to focus strictly on commercial work. Immediately, Mike called Genny, a teacher at the time, and asked her to join him in starting a roofing company. Since the inception of Commonwealth Roofing & Siding LLC, Mike and Genny have insisted on running a business built on honesty and integrity; forthright estimates, quality products, warranties workmanship and unrivaled customer service.
Every aspect of our project with Commonwealth was exceptional… customer service, sales clarity, scheduling, workmanship, integrity and follow up. The team truly takes pride in their work and it shows. We love supporting local family owned companies that provide personal attention to their work, and Commonwealth does that in spades.
