Family-owned Excelsior Roofing Company has no less than 100 years of experience roofing San Francisco homes, and are known for their quality, honesty and reliability.
Founded in 1906, Excelsior is managed today by the founder's grandson, Mark Powers, who has acquired enormous expertise in his own right after roofing for over 30 years in the City.
Finding a good, reliable roofer in San Francisco isn't easy. Over the past few years, hundreds of new companies have sprung up, offering amazingly low prices and long guarantees. Unfortunately, the Department of Consumer Affairs reports that roofers have one of the highest complaint rates of any industry.
So how do you choose a roofer?
One way is to deal with long-established companies. Roofing is a high-overhead, low-margin business: only the well-run, reliable companies can survive.
With over 100 years of experience roofing San Francisco homes, Excelsior Roofing Company is known for its quality, honesty and reliability. Founded in 1906, Excelsior is managed today by the founder's grandson, Mark Powers, who has acquired enormous expertise in his own right after roofing for over 25 years in the City. Mark keeps Excelsior's prices competitive by buying materials in bulk, and warehousing them. Jobs are bid individually, and billed on completion.
Excelsior specializes in residential roofing: built-up (tar and gravel) roofs, shingles, tiles, slate and all roof-related sheet metal work. Each Excelsior employee has completed a full apprenticeship, and receives continuing education through the Roofers Union. Many have been with the company over 10 years.
All jobs are checked daily by crew supervisors. Customers are protected by nine million dollars of general liability and accident insurance, with Excelsior Roofing Company's workmanship guaranteed for five years.
