Meet Craig Miller of RV Roof Extend in Cleburne

Today we’d like to introduce you to Craig Miller.

Craig, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I started a commercial roof restoration company several years ago. Some commercial roofs are EPDM rubber, and we have the product and process to restore those roofs and be able to offer a 10 year non – prorated warranty.

I got to thinking that there might be an opportunity to use commercial grade roof coatings on RV roofs. If it’s good enough for a 5 million dollar warehouse, I was pretty sure it would be good enough for an RV.

As we started experimenting with it, we found that we could restore RV roofs that were in pretty bad shape back into really great condition.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
Compared to commercial roof work, re-roofing an RV is much more like body work. We need to carefully tape plastic down over the sides to prevent over spray problems. So it ends up that a lot of the work is in getting the RV ready to spray.

We’d love to hear more about your business.
I think we’re pretty unique, in that we came to the industry not so much with extensive RV knowledge, as with extensive roof restoration knowledge. It allows us to source really high-quality coatings and apply them with excellence.

RV roof replacements often cost $5000 – $8000. Our restoration system allows us to complete most projects for well under $2000. That’s a pretty remarkable cost savings.

Additionally, our system leaves your RV roof a bright white color, which helps keep the interior of your RV more comfortable with less AC during the warm summer months.

What were you like growing up?
One of my earliest business experiences growing up involved green beans. We lived on a farm in Kansas, and each year my Mom had a garden. This particular year, my brothers and I “owned” several rows of green beans. On warm June mornings, we go out to the garden and pick beans. After we had finished picking them, we weighed them into clear plastic bags and marked the weight on the side with a black marker. My great Aunt Edna had a route in town, going around to different offices with her tempting baked goods. Fortunately, she was willing to add green beans to her list of product offerings.

That summer my brothers and I made a couple hundred dollars, and we were able to buy a high-quality trampoline (with a little help from my Dad). It was an early lesson in the value and reward of hard work.
