History of Berwald Roofing in Minnesota
Berwald Roofing has a history of quality workmanship and top-notch service of over 80 years. Founded in 1936 by E.R. Berwald, the company primarily installed shingles and siding. In 1950, the company was incorporated to accommodate growing business. A solid reputation and satisfied repeat customers represented the growth of its early years, and allowed Berwald to expand its services to include hot tar roofs, sheet metal flashing, slate and clay tile. In 1954, E.R. Berwald brought his two sons, Gene and Ken, into the business, who remain active in the company today.
Berwald is one of the largest roofing, sheet metal, and wall panel companies in Minnesota. With the fourth generation now involved we have remained a family owned and operated company. While Berwald has added many services, including ornamental sheet metal, architectural panels, single-ply roofing, waterproofing, and a full maintenance program, they have retained a core set of values based in hard-work, dependable service, and client satisfaction. Berwald employs highly skilled laborers – the average employee has 20 years experience, while the average amount of experience for their management team is 36 years. Also, Berwald places value on continuing education, such as asbestos removal and safety training, keeping their employees abreast of new developments in the industry. While Berwald is rooted in the past, they understand the value of putting new technologies to work for them, using state-of-the-art materials and equipment in manufacturing and the field.
With over 80 years of experience, there’s no question that Berwald has learned the secrets of success, and continues to exceed the expectations of their clients in every undertaking.
