ROOFING SOUTHWEST is a leading contractor with 
a footprint in Arizona and throughout the country. 
But don’t be surprised if you don’t see its name on a 
billboard, television ad or on a flyer in your mailbox.

That’s because Roofing Southwest prefers to focus on the commercial and 
industrial industries and doesn’t want the company inundated by calls for 
residential services, says Founder Rick Radobenko.

 Rick entered the roofing 

business as a teenager looking for a summer job in Arizona and has grown 
along with the industry. As a mechanically minded person, he became intrigued 
by the equipment used in the industry and assembling equipment.

“It was a perfect choice – 

Take a nice hot summer and spend some time on a roof,” he laughs.
