So, you like to read, huh? Well, then we’ve got a story to tell.
Albert got started in the construction industry in high school with classes in building maintenance and technical drawing. One of his earliest projects involved building the baseball dugout during 11th and 12th grades, as well as a few of the outbuildings and storage buildings.
Like many other graduates in his school district he transitioned to a factory job for a local company, but eventually found it to be less than satisfactory for his personality and skills. When he found the opportunity to go to work for a local commercial roofing company he took it right away. It didn’t take long though until his entrepreneurial spirit kicked in and he decided to start focusing on having his own business.
“I looked at that opportunity as a sort of apprenticeship,” he says. “After five years I decided I had spent enough time learning under someone else, and I decided to go out on my own.”
Albert has been working as a self-employed contractor since 2001. His company history is quite fascinating. “I originally opened shop here in Golversville, NY. It wasn’t anything too big, but it was what I would call successful.”
In 2003 he had the opportunity to attend bible college in Pennsylvania, and so from 2003 until 2008 he operated his own company while attending classes at the same time.
“I built the company from the ground up, I got it booming! I had a total of twelve employees and I learned a lot.”
In 2008 his continuing education took him to Houston, and he took his entrepreneurial talents and desires along with him. Starting all over from scratch once again, Albert was able to build a thriving business from the ground up. Having completed his education in 2012 he returned home to Gloversville, NY – where he has been in business ever since.
He says, “So I have few employees, we work very efficiently, make sure to have modern equipment. I strive for perfection when it comes to customer service, which is why I think I have… is it 82 5 star reviews? It’s hard to keep track, because I do get so many, but I only have four 4 star reviews.”
What Makes Us Stand Out from the Competition?
Our customer service really is exceptional, and we know that every company says that… but if something isn’t right… we’re going to do everything we have to do to make it right. But it’s not just when we’re on the job site. Albert regularly follows up with his customers to make sure everything is going well.
“Okay, I’ll tell you what I just did about a month ago… I had a customer who I advised to coat the entire roof in order to fix this particular leak. She didn’t want to pay for that, she wanted to just focus on the area that was leaking. I advised that based on my this wouldn’t fix the issue… it would be like a ‘band-aid solution,’ because of the way the roof sloped.
“So I couldn’t offer her a guarantee with this particular repair… because it’s not going to be fixed properly if I do what she wants… but she couldn’t afford to do it the right way, and she also just couldn’t really understand why the whole roof needed to be coated. The repair wasn’t cheap, even the way she wanted it done… it included some soffit and fascia work…
“Since I knew that her desired approach wouldn’t fix the issue and that she couldn’t afford to have it done the right way, I worked with her on that – in I gave her a steeply discounted rate and promised that if she wants me to come back and do the full coating I’ll do everything I can to keep it within her budget.
“And that’s where we’re different. A lot of contractors won’t take the time to make it clear that the cheapest fix won’t work – they’ll just take the customers money and run. But I can’t do that, you know? I will always take the time to make sure you understand my recommendations and back them up with a good guarantee. And if I can’t do that, then sometimes I won’t do the work – but if, like with this lady, I knew another contractor would just come in and rip her off… so I did everything I could to come up with a solution that worked for her without putting either of us in a bad situation.”

Albert Adamkoski Roofing
Called him because I had a concern about a leak and he gave me some great advice on how to fix it myself. Very nice and pleasant I highly recommend!
Justin – Roof Repair Customer
Was concerned about my roof after finding a few shingles had blown out because of the wind. I contacted Adam and he quickly had the shingles repaired and inspected my roof and nailed down everything that was loose. For the same amount he quoted me he cleaned out my gutter and fixed and sealed everything that didn’t look right. I highly recommend this gentleman as he will remain my roofer.
