At AMDG Exterior Contracting, a Personal Touch From a Local Team
Jason Campuzano has built a team with a family feel.
Jason Campuzano is a Delco guy: the kind of contractor who knows everyone, because he’s been here his whole life.
“I was born and raised here, and I love the Philadelphia area,” he said. “I’ve worked in most of the neighborhoods in Delaware and Montgomery counties and in the city. I know the neighborhoods, the homes, and the people.”
He got his start in the roofing business in high school, sweating through summers on West Philadelphia rooftops. After high school, he started doing commercial roofing, and then moved into siding and exterior renovations.
Campuzano founded AMDG Exterior Contracting in 2005 and has built a team based on quality and service. The company does everything for the outside of your home, including roofing and gutters, siding, windows, and doors.
“The principles that guide me really come from my Christian faith. First and foremost, I’m a Catholic husband and father. AMDG is an extension of my faith,” Campuzano said. “Honesty and trust are two of the values that we look for in employees. These are most important to me, because I feel we owe that to our customers and to each other.”
The company’s name comes from the Latin phrase “ad majorem dei gloriam,” which means “for the greater glory of God.” It’s attributed to St. Ignatius of Loyola, the founder of the Catholic order of Jesuits.
That mindset extends to the company’s community service efforts. Each year, AMDG gives a new roof to one local family in need, through the No Roof Left Behind giveaway. After nominations from the public and voting on the finalists, Campuzano and his employees donate their time to strip off the old roof and put on the new one.
On installation day, it’s not just the roofers who show up: the office staff comes, too, with their spouses and kids. Campuzano and his wife, Nicole, have five children, and so the event becomes a kind of community party.
It’s a point of great pride for Campuzano.
“I feel it’s a blessing to have a business with great employees and customers, and the No Roof Left Behind program is a chance for our company to come together and give back to the community where we live and work,” he said. “It’s the best time of the year for AMDG. We are able to make a real difference by providing a roof for a family that desperately needs one.”
The communal nature of the event is also a testimony to the team mentality at AMDG. From the sales consultants to the project managers to the field technicians, everyone works together to give customers a great experience. The work, Campuzano said, is the easy part.
“It’s meeting the individual needs of the customers that we try to focus on,” he said. “And that takes great employees — which, thankfully, we have!”
Campuzano, who has an open, friendly demeanor and greets even the newest acquaintance like an old friend, has built a loyal base of customers at AMDG. He tells a funny story as an example: a couple of years ago, hackers got into the company’s email list and send out a message saying Campuzano was in a Mexican hospital awaiting surgery. The email asked friends and family to send money right away.
“The phones in the office were ringing off the hook for about two days,” Campuzano said. “The office staff was putting everyone’s mind at ease and begging them not to send money. It was nice to know so many people cared enough to call and were willing to send money, but hopefully nobody did!”
He’s got a great team at home, too. Campuzano said his wife is a huge support and an amazing mom, and they both find fulfillment raising their kids. Watching them grow into their own personalities is his greatest thrill.
“My family is what motivates me,” he said. “The best part of the day is coming home and seeing how excited they are when I walk through the door.”
