Diamond Rocker Companies
1•2•3 Roofing, Seamless & SolarTM is a division of Diamond Rocker, Inc. The company was started as a tribute to my grandfather and the years I spent on his ranch as a child and young man – the Diamond Rocker Ranch in Artesian, SD (northeast of Mitchell).
My grandpa and his ranch made a huge impact in my life. A strong work ethic is one of the first things you learn on a ranch. The days are long and there’s always something needing to be done, no matter the season, whether it’s 80 degrees outside or below zero. You learn a lot about life working on a ranch. It truly saddens me that kids today don’t have the opportunity to experience this lifestyle at least once.
Once the decision was made to start a construction company, I went through the process of trying to come up with a name and I just wasn’t “feeling” any of the choices I had been considering.
What’s in a name? Well, to me, it’s a lot. Your name and the quality and consistency by which you provide service to your customers say a lot about you. I wanted to take the necessary time to find a name that would hopefully last the rest of my life – and, given I have a son, perhaps even beyond.
So, in the middle of the night sometime in May 2005, from a deep sleep, I awoke, sat up in bed and Diamond Rocker Construction was born. I’ve often wondered if my grandfather didn’t “whisper” something in my ear that night. And, it is my hope that almost nine years later, if he’s watching me, he’s proud of what I’ve done.
The values I learned working for my grandfather are the same core values I bring to every roofing job 1•2•3 Roofing, Seamless & SolarTM does in the Black Hills. Those values will carry through, no matter if your project is a mansion in Carriage Hills in Rapid City or a tract home in Belle Fourche.
Thank you for your interest in the Diamond Rocker family of companies.
