Meet the Owner

Tara Kramer started Ri Ky Roofing in 2007– a challenging time in the USA economy–as a single mom with two young boys, Riley and Kyle—whom the company is named after. Ri is for Riley and Ky is for Kyle, together, they make Ri Ky. Tara’s personal life is where she drew the inspiration, for not only the name of her business, but for the hard work and dedication that went into starting her own company.

Tara’s work experience started her on the path to creating Ri Ky Roofing; moreover, Tara worked her way up the ladder of a highly regarded large roofing company- from receptionist, marketer, roofer, to project manager. Later she was running both Operations and Sales for a new office that the company had opened in a new market.  She wanted to ensure she knew every part of the process, so that she could guarantee her customers would receive the best quality products and service.  In addition, she helped grow an HVAC mechanical company by showing clients how to extend the life of their HVAC commercial equipment.

Not only has she worked every aspect of the roofing industry, but she is highly regarded in her field. See a few of her awards below. Click here to read more about her.
