About Us

For 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 bulidings, 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.

all types of roofing, including specialty roofingErin and Matt also hold to practices others these days might call outdated: working hard and doing a job they can be proud of at the end of the day.  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.
