Will Lampton Roof Crafters Team Leader
Lead Roof Crafters team member
With over two decades of experience in roofing and construction, Will Lampton has re-roofed thousands of homes in Louisiana and Mississippi. His high level of local knowledge has made both him and his roofing company, Roof Crafters, trusted experts in crafting quality roofs that are designed for this region’s particular needs and popular roof styles. With a specific focus on Baton Rouge and the surrounding communities of Hammond, Covington, Mandeville and Slidell, Will Lampton has completed roofing projects from Denham Springs, Louisiana to McComb, Mississippi.
As a roofing consultant, Will Lampton uses his personal experience and expert knowledge in the industry to assist clients with their roofing projects. The Roof Crafters website serves as a launching point for providing educational and practical content to Louisiana residents embarking on a new roof installation or the re-roofing of an existing building. Walking clients through the entire roofing process, he provides valuable insights on what to expect at the start of a new project, common problems that can occur during a new installation, and issues to look for when the roofing work is completed.
Will Lampton’s extensive local experience also makes him aware of issues that are unique to homes and roofs in the Baton Rouge area. From the particular challenges of Louisiana’s notably steep roofs to potential risks that come with air conditioners, pools and other structures that are near roofing projects, he knows exactly what to look out for — and what to avoid.
For 27 years Will worked as a land developer and bought and sold real estate. He has worked in Washington, DC to Louisville, KY and all over the great state of Texas. He will tell you that he loves what he does and that it makes a difference. He loves working with people and always wants the customer to be happy. Will is always looking for ways to improve any business that he is in – always looking for opportunities to help everyone be their best.
Mickey Thames, has over 3 decades in the industry; everything from remodeling, new construction, to management and development, he’s a proud leader of Roof Crafters team. He goes above and beyond to see that the projects get done professionally, anything from a simple situation to a complex situation, and that customers are completely satisfied and trust that the job is done in a professional manner. He’s worked all over the U.S ; from Key Largo, FL. all the way up to Washington state. Mickey absolutely loves what he does. He resides in Mccomb, MS. Mickey has been with Roof Crafters for over 7 plus years now and couldn’t be happier.
He called the main office number and was almost immediately contacted by one of the sales professionals. Long story short, Michael agreed to have Roof Crafters complete his roofing project. Once the job had finished, he and the salesperson, David, sat on his front porch. Eager to talk to someone about his woes at work, he confided in David about him feeling stuck at a dead-end job, that he didn’t like.
After hearing this, David kindly said to him that maybe he should consider a change of job. They shook hands, and that was that. About a week later, a job posting on LinkedIn showed that the same company, Roof Crafters, was looking for a field representative. Michael applied, but didn’t think anything of it, as he had no construction experience whatsoever. Well, two years and some change later, he is still here and doing some really great things.
Just A Few Happy Clients For Michael
Michael is always learning, and doing absolutely anything he can to make sure his clients are happy. He is a firm believer in adapting to change and is always willing to help out his team in any way he can. We look forward to many more years with Michael at Roof Crafters.
