Rich Lopez, Vice President Of Operations & Co-Owner
I was born and raised in Kitsap County and am a proud husband and father of two amazing boys. My passion is coaching and I have volunteered many hours coaching youth sports, such as: basketball, football, and baseball. I’ve been with Affordable Roof Care since it started 4 years ago. I have watched it grow to now almost 20 employees. In March, I was presented the opportunity to buy the business from my cousin with my brother-in-law; we finalized the sale in March 2017.
Fun fact: As one of the players I coached observed, “I am taller than my future.” What the player meant by that is I have a lot of tasks I juggle every day and I handle it positively.
Jessica Lopez, Office Manager
I am a South Kitsap High School graduate. I moved to Seattle for school and moved back to good old Port Orchard and haven’t left since. I have a diverse background of Office Work, Marketing, and Sales. I worked for a local Title Company for 3 years as an Account Rep calling on Local Real Estate and Lending offices. I was also in Social Work as a Case Manager for the Workforce Investment Act where I ran my own program called SEED where local individuals were able to get training in energy efficiency programs at Olympic College. I then started working for Conservation Services Group as a Business Representative working the RePower Kitsap program that teamed up with Puget Sound Energy. After I got married I decided to leave my career and be a stay at home mom of two boys for a few years. I made the plunge to go back to work about 3 years ago, working for Affordable Roof Care.

What I love about Affordable Roof Care: I have been with this company since the beginning when we only had three employees and two vehicles on the road and worked from a home office. Now we have over 20 employees, seven vehicles on the road, and a beautiful local office that is fully staffed. Affordable Roof Care is a family owned and operated company and we take pride in our employees as well as the work we do for our customers.

What I love about Affordable Roof Care: It’s better to roof in the winter than in the summer because you can always put more clothes on but you can only take so many off.
