Bill (William) Ball was born in Staten Island, NY and grew up in the small rural town of Kinnelon in northwest NJ. Bill attended the University of Maryland in College Park, Maryland. He graduated from the University of Maryland with a bachelor’s degree in Construction Management. Bill was also a member of Sigma Pi Fraternity where he developed close friendships and ties to the College Park, Maryland area. Bill worked as project manager for several corporate home builders in the Washington D.C. area before moving to South Carolina in 1995.
Upon moving to South Carolina, Bill worked for both a General Contractor and a Roofing Contractor. After gaining valuable experience and knowledge regarding the roofing business for three years, Bill was inspired to begin his own company. In 1998, he incorporated Cutting Edge of HHI (also known as BB Roofing) and began to work under his own name.
The original focus of BB Roofing was to specialize in pre-engineered buildings and designs. After several years of striving for that goal and doing many large commercial jobs throughout the coastal Southeast, the focus changed.
The Lowcountry area had a need for roofing services and Bill decided that staying closer to home and developing deep roots and local connections should be the new focus of BB Roofing. Since that time, Bill has been providing the Lowcountry with an honest opinion and quality roofing work.
On a personal note…. While attending the University of Maryland, Bill met Theresa Amadeo whom he later married. Bill and Theresa lived in Maryland for 5 years and had two children before moving to South Carolina in 1995. Theresa graduated from the University of Maryland with a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education. She currently works as a teacher at Red Cedar Elementary in Bluffton.
