About Us

Serving the Eugene-Springfield area with comprehensive, high-quality care for your roof

example image of roofing materialsAt Gruwell Roofing, we’re dedicated to everything your roof might need. We don’t just do the big jobs like new roofs and re-roofs, leaving you to find someone else to save you if your roof springs a leak or ends up with a condition that could shorten your roof’s useful life.

Skilled roofing contractors from Gruwell Roofing, up on the roofFor over 40 years, members of the Gruwell family have been climbing onto roofs to repair leaks, turn crumbling sections of roofing into smooth, neat rows of new shingles, or to strip away entire housetops of weather-beaten shakes and shingles and replace them with spreads of neat, secure, watertight new roofing.

Joel Gruwell began this tradition, gathering knowledge and experience as a roofing contractor from projects ranging from single story homes to high rise office buildings, below-grade water-proofing, patios, dog houses and even coconut palm frond roofing on tree houses in Hawaii. You might say he’s been around the roofing block. He also installed cedar shakes on Splash Mountain at Disneyland. And then there’s the yurt, which you can see in the photo below.

Joel’s sons Matt and Erin grew up around this sort of thing, and developed their dad’s love of roofing. In the process, they received something priceless that many of today’s roofers miss out on: one-on-one training in roofing techniques that are fast disappearing. Many of today’s roofers don’t know how to lay a fine shake roof, but Joel Gruwell’s sons do.

And taking a genuine interest in each and every roofing job they do… including each visit they make to give an estimate. Call them and you’ll notice the difference between the cursory examination and presentation you may get from other roofing contractors you call, and the interest Erin and Matt will show in the roof that protects your house and family. You’ll love the difference.

Give them a call today and discover the kind of workmanship and personal attention that have earned Gruwell Roofing so many fans here in the Eugene-Springfield area… and the Angie’s List Super Service Award more than five years in a row.

Waste Accountable

We recycle all leftover materials whenever possible.

“When I needed my roof re-roofed, I got bids from three companies, but you seemed the most interested of the three in doing my roof. Erin offered a lot of useful information the other estimators didn’t, and didn’t make it seem like my roof was just one of dozens he’d be looking at that day. His estimate also included more roof vents than the other estimators proposed installing. Once I accepted your bid, Erin called me back much more quickly than I’d expected to tell me you’d had some customers who needed to switch dates and if it was convenient for me, you could do my roof the following week. Your entire crew was very nice. You did the work quickly, cleaned up after yourselves and there was no blaring music or loud talking, etc. to put up with the way there often is with construction-type crews. Both of you were conscientious and very helpful, and it felt good to have my roof re-done by someone who really cared about providing good workmanship.”
