Women in Construction Week


The month of March is dedicated to celebrating women’s impact throughout history. This week in particular is Women in Construction Week (WIC) and focuses on women as a viable component of the construction industry. There’s no doubt that the Eberhard women bring an incredible amount of talent, knowledge and personality to our team and the industry as a whole. Sending a big THANK YOU to all of them for upholding and contributing to the high bar that Eberhard has set in the roofing and sheet metal industry.

This week our industry and affiliates work together to raise awareness of construction opportunities for women and the growing role they play in the industry. Check out a quick but impactful Q&A with one of our executive leaders, Laurie Garrett.



Q:What have been some of the highlights working in the industry?

A: It’s rewarding being involved with job cost accounting.  Analyzing the costs, revenues and profitability on each job from fruition through to completion.

Q: What’s your biggest construction vice?

A: Fixer Upper with Chip & Joanna Gaines.  It’s inspiring how they manage to run so many successful businesses while raising so many happy kids.



Q: Any words of wisdom that the past year inspires?

A: We are all ONE on this big ship together. There’s no leak big enough that a good waterproofing team can’t patch.
