Industry: Roof and building envelope consulting
Projected 2019 Revenue: $4 million
Interstate Roof Systems Consultants provides schools, offices, hospitality, manufacturing, and retail property owners and managers with roof and enclosure management services. Additionally, the company works alongside facility professionals to evaluate, consult, manage and protect commercial building roofs and building envelopes.
Beyond measuring its growth with the standard revenue and staff, IRSC views its success through its ability to respond to urgent roof and envelope needs within 24 hours, regardless of location.
Uncontrollable weather serves as the main obstacle for IRSC, according to CEO David Velcheck. “Her (mother nature’s) wrath makes scheduling a complete nightmare at times,” he said, adding IRSC’s clients understand those uncontrollable circumstances. Another challenge is finding new hires that will fit into the already established team dynamic.
Currently, IRSC is in the process of renovating its Waukesha office space and expanding its Illinois office. It is also participating in Scale Up Milwaukee, an initiative that supports companies’ growth aspirations. Another recent addition to IRSC is its new drone services, which provide clients with infrared thermography reports quickly.

“Early in my career, one of my first employers told me to find what you enjoy, work to be the very best at it and you’ll be very successful.”
