Frost Roofing has been a leader in the industry since 1928. The family's fourth generation acquired ownership in 2008. But, James J. Smithey wasn't born into ownership. He started his career as a laborer, and over the past 25 years his thirst for knowledge has made him the roofing expert he is today. The Company was built upon integrity and a constant drive to be cutting edge without losing old fashioned standards; a job well done is a job done right. And 85+ years later, our owner maintains this philosophy.

Your contractor should be experienced, and your roof should not be an experiment for them. When selecting a contractor be skeptical of the one who knows everything but is an industry infant. Roofing is a craft that requires experience outside of a manual and textbook. Is the contractor a member of the National Roofing Contractor's Association (NRCA)? The NRCA is one of the oldest trade associations. The knowledge and guidance they offer roofing professionals is immeasurable. Is the workmanship warranty longer than the number of years in business? Often we see contractors claim their project is bonded and has a 10 year workmanship warranty. Even with Warren Buffet's balance sheet, a performance bond that includes a 10 year workmanship warranty is not available from a reputable bonding company or agent.


It is wise to take time to get a contractor. Two major components of a facility is the roof and the foundation; the roof protects what is inside and the foundation supports it. Why take a chance on the building's top asset? Numerous team members at Frost Roofing have many years experience that is priceless. Call (419) 739-ROOF to see how Frost can assist you with selecting the roofing solution best for your individual needs.
