IRE LogoEverything Roofing and Then Some

IRE offers a little bit of everything roofing. Featuring manufacturers and suppliers of various sizes, many of those in attendance are presenting the best of the best in terms of roofing materials and industry innovation.

IRE attendance continues to grow each year. Rob Haddock, CEO of S-5! has seen this firsthand in the numerous shows he has attended.

“I look forward to the IRE every year. I get to shake hands and say “hello and thanks” to our many valued customers and friends in trade and industry on a one-on-one personal level. That’s important to me because I worked in trade for many years myself and was always appreciative when a manufacturer really listened to what I had to say about his products.S-5!
