North Bay Entrepreneur Wins Female Roofer Award

Michelle Mulder, owner of Nailed It Roofing in North Bay, ON, is the winner of Beacon’s annual North American ‘Female Roofing Professional of the Year’ competition, which shines a spotlight on inspiring women in the roofing industry. Mulder enjoyed hands-on work since taking shop classes in high school, where she looked forward to a career in the trades. As a woman, she found it difficult to be hired in construction after high school, so she enrolled in the Renovation Techniques Construction Carpentry Program at Canadore College. Upon graduating in 2005, she was hired as a carpenter, framing houses and sheathing roofs. Learning more about the on-site trades, she grew a passion for roofing. In 2015, she started her own business, Nailed It Roofing, which has been one of the top roofing companies in North Bay for the past seven years.
