A native of Chicago and certified scuba diver, Bob came west to study at the University of Washington, with hopes of becoming the next Jacque Cousteau. He graduated with a BS in Biology and Psychology. After working for Alaska’s Department of Fish and Game and a stint on a crab boat on the Bering Sea, Bob came back to the UofW and got his teaching credentials. He taught Math and Science for several years and during summer breaks did some roofing and construction. During this time Bob married Barbara and with the arrival of their first daughter, Bob decided to pursue the roofing business full time. With some homemade signs and used equipment, Redmond Roofing was born. Just as the Hernacki family grew with the addition of two more daughters, so did the company. Now, besides running three reroofing crews and one repair crew, Bob stays busy with activities in his church, spending time with friends and family and of course cheering on the Seahawks!
