Meet Jim Bennington

With a background of over 30 years working in all aspects of the roofing industry – from contracting to distribution to manufacturing representation – Jim lives in Pittsburgh and covers the Western Pennsylvania area.

He also wears a kilt.

No kidding! Insert your favorite joke about what’s under the kilt here.

While most people have hobbies like golfing, fishing, or hunting, Jim is an accomplished drummer who has been playing professionally since an early age. From square dances to symphonies, he has played just about every style of music.

But it doesn’t end there. He also plays in a competitive Scottish bagpipe band that was undefeated in US competition in 2017 and even traveled to Scotland for the World Championships – hence the kilt.

Aside from having a unique hobby, Jim enjoys representing EcoStar as it provides him a way to “overcome the ordinary” and “involve my creative side” when working with designers, homeowners, and contractors to “create a roof that is not only high performance but aesthetically magnificent.”

Projects that are “anything out of the ordinary” tend to be his favorites.

Jim’s favorite project to date is a beautiful Feathered Driftwood job that was 50% Empire Shake and 50% Empire Shake Plus. “The homeowners love it, they had EcoStar Shakes installed on the house, the garage, a backyard gazebo, even their mailbox.”
