The roofing industry is always adapting. New technology, new methods, new devices, new strategies! The roofing industry is as diverse as they come.
A new development, in the more recent years has been… SOLAR. There are many buzzwords that come with this territory: solar panels, renewable energy, Tesla roofs, Tesla panels! It can be overwhelming at first glance. However, as Chuck Hunt says: “It’s only a matter of time before towns and cities are run by solar.”
Meet Chuck. Chuck is Wick’s Solar Roofing’s Project Coordinator. Chuck has been working at Wick’s Roofing for many years and loves his job! Check out his profile below.
Chuck, along with his coworkers at Wicks Solar Roofing, use CompanyCam. CompanyCam has been a game-changer — it’s helped them level up to new heights.
But before CompanyCam, documentation was rough at Wicks Solar Roofing. Chuck said, “Oh my gosh — before CompanyCam documentation was a mess.” They had paper spread everywhere, diagrams, sketches, hundreds of pictures across everyone’s phones. Talk about a disaster!
Whenever Chuck needed a photo of something, the guy with the photo never seemed to be around. It was a challenge getting access to photos when you needed them most!
Now with CompanyCam, all of Wick’s photos and videos are stored in the cloud. “Everyone can access the photos at any given time. It makes a big difference.”
We asked Chuck, would you recommend CompanyCam to anyone? This was his answer:
“I talk about CompanyCam with everybody who listens! I recommend you all big time — especially to other contractors who keep their photos on their phone and wanna show me something. I say, ‘Guys! You gotta upgrade’ all the time.”
Chuck believes CompanyCam is “…a much easier way to keep your photos organized.” The days of standing around and flipping through your photo albums are OVER!
“CompanyCam has absolutely exceeded my expectations with what it can do and how organized it is.”
At Wicks, they have hundreds of job files and projects going on at once. Because they use CompanyCam, lots of employees can be taking photos at once and everything still stays organized. “It tells you the date and time they took it — it’s impressive.”
CompanyCam is $19/month per user. But does it pay for itself? Chuck says, “CompanyCam pays for itself over and over again. From the perspective of having 10 roofers take 10 different pictures from 10 different job sites—CompanyCam is paying for itself in ONE day. Absolutely.”
In one word, Chuck described CompanyCam as “awesome.”

A key question:
How do you learn more about the roofing and solar industry?
Chuck highly recommends joining the National Roofing Contractor Association. NRCA is nation wide association that offers roofing educational courses and roofing safety seminars. Chuck has found them very helpful — might be worth looking into. 👀
Chuck has some passionate things to say about the next question, too:
What’s the future growth for Wicks and the solar roofing industry?
Chuck said, “Solar energy is the way of the future, any way you look at it. It’s clean, it’s non destructive. We are just barely scratching the surface of what the world can do with solar. It’s also amazing because the technology for it comes worldwide. It can be added in anywhere!”
