Commercial Energy Systems

The right roof can cool a building that previously baked under the hot sun, power a house or a business with solar energy, or stop leaks and water issues. In 2014, Jim Wolff decided to bring his 30 years of experience in commercial construction to his own commercial roofing company, helping Florida business owners save money and avoid total roof replacement wherever possible. Their focus is in the liquid applied restoration market using spray polyurethane foam and silicone elastomeric.

My Successes: 

Manasota SCORE 2017-2018 Company of the Year!

Commercial Energy Systems has been featured on the front page of the Englewood Sun and Harbor Style magazine. The company routinely receives rave reviews from customers and Wolff says it is growing exponentially.

What's Great About My Mentor?: 

My biggest need was having someone like Pat hear my business situation and objectively provide the guidance necessary to refocus the business plan.  "I greatly appreciate the objective, professional experience and resources Pat shared with me throughout the year.  She helped me make difficult business decisions that definitely helped my business grow and prosper in a way that never would have happened without SCORE's assistance.  With Pat's help, we also improved our marketing by fine-tuning our direct marketing in our commercial roofing industry niche and integrating a robust web-based marketing strategy".
