When Bob and Dora decided to start their own business, they knew it wasn’t going to be easy. They started by knocking on doors and fixing leaky roofs in their hometown of Whitehall, Michigan. With the help of their five sons, they expanded the business to Manistee, Michigan, in 1981. Over the years, they established a reputation for honesty and reliability, for making—and keeping—strong promises, and for delivering excellent service, especially when their customers needed it most.
In 1996, Bob sold the company to his sons, who carried the business forward for the next two decades, until it was acquired by Jeremy Nowak in 2016. Jeremy brought new resources that are fueling new capabilities and growth; the truly important things aren’t changing. It’s still Bob’s Roofing and the name still stands for Quality, Service, and Integrity.
We’ve got the certifications.

The best work for us.
It’s tough to find and keep good roofing installers, which is why experienced installers can pretty much work for whomever they please. Many of the best choose to work for Bob’s Roofing.
While many roofers are forced to use unskilled and inexperienced labor, our 36 full-time installers have an average of 16 years experience. That adds up to over 570 years of combined roofing experience! Each of our foremen have over 25 years on the job, while two of them—Al Spitler and Wayne Lindeman—have each been roofers for over 30 years.
We’re honored that specialists like these have chosen to work with us. These are people you know you can rely on to do the best job possible. Their professionalism, courtesy, attention to detail, craftsmanship, and safety will ensure that your installation will go smoothly and the finished product will meet or exceed your expectations.
