Luke Berlet

Luke Berlet comes from Texas where he began roofing at the age of 14. He learned valuable skills during his time in Texas that he brought to Colorado in 1999 when he moved to Steamboat Springs. He immediately started his own roofing company putting those 7 years of experience to work. It was during his first winter that he began his education in snow removal and the issues it causes in mountain communities. He met his wife, Carissa, in the spring of 2000. They were married the next year and started their family. Luke has continued to pursue knowledge in the roofing and snow removal industries over the past 15 years. He has been an integral part in the starting of several successful roofing companies including: A and O Enterprises (1999-2006), Rusty Metal Systems (2006-2010), and Falcon Exterior Solutions (2011-2015). He has brought all these skills to his latest family based operation. He currently runs operations and job sites.

Tom Anderson

As the oldest member of the team, Tom brings over 40 years of experience in business management and customer service to the business. He graduated with degrees in Mechanical Engineering and Business Administration from The University of Michigan in 1977, and has enjoyed serving customers in many endeavors, including a marina he developed and helping clients with planning for their future as a Certified Financial Planner. In 1996 he and his family moved to Steamboat Springs to take over operation of a business they would enjoy for more than 20 years, Hot Stuff Hearth & Home. Meeting with thousands of homeowners and helping them add a beautiful and safe source of heat to their homes gave him a lasting feeling of accomplishment.

His wife, Kay, and he have been blessed with three fine sons and five much-loved grandchildren. He has a passion for hunting, especially with bow and arrow.

Tom is looking forward to helping people in the Steamboat area make their roofs “Great Again”!
