About Us

Our Story

Elite Roofing was started in 2012 by Scott & Laura Himler after several years working with another roofing company. The Himlers saw an opportunity to provide superior service to clients in the roofing industry. With roofing contractors historically not known for great service, the owners focused heavily on high-quality workmanship, honesty, and high levels of customer service while performing Roof Repairs, Roof Installations, and Gutter Replacements. This focus on serving the customer helped Elite Roofing succeed in becoming a GAF Master Elite Certified Contractor and achieved an A+ Better Business Bureau rating. It also allowed the company to grow and expand from the Lake Norman area to cover all of the Charlotte, Hickory, and Boone markets.

In 2019, Mick Koster and Ross Erickson joined forces to acquire Elite Roofing & Construction along with investor Don Miller.  Mick & Ross left behind two perfectly cromulent corporate America executive roles to leverage their experiences building and scaling businesses to help embiggen Elite Roofing to the next level. Mick, most recently an executive at Lowe’s and a Notre Dame graduate, and Ross, most recently COO at ETAK Systems and a West Point graduate, are focused on being the best possible stewards of the Elite brand.

They are committed to continuing to deliver the excellent workmanship Elite is known for, to bring new products and technologies to market to improve the customer experience, and to expand the brand to new market opportunities.  Don Miller is a Board member and is bringing more than 40 years of experience in alternative energy, including nuclear, wind, and solar, to help guide Elite and develop the right strategy. Combined, the ownership team is driven by a strong belief in the opportunity that solar energy will revolutionize the roofing industry and intend to guide Elite along that journey to be the leader in the Carolinas for solar and roofing solutions for many years to come.

Our Purpose

The Elite Way

The Elite Roofing team is driven by a singular purpose – to put a smile on our neighbors’ faces by protecting their families and homes with a safe, beautiful, and innovative roof over their heads.

It’s why we are excited each day to do what we do, and have pride in doing it.  It’s why we never cut corners with our installations or offer sub-standard products. It’s why we greet our customers with a smile and never pass up an opportunity to share a laugh. It’s what drives us to continuously improve – never being afraid to learn about or offer the most

innovative products, technologies, and services to our customers. And it’s through that improvement that we can make our neighbors’ lives better, help us lessen the impact we have on our environment and put a smile on their face and ours. It’s what we call “The Elite Way”.

Our award-winning team of roofing professionals is here to guide you and serve you every step of that journey – helping make your roofing experience as simple and easy as it can be. We hope you’ll trust us to be your roofing contractor and serve your needs.
