Founded in 1991, Kurt and Scott started their business on California Avenue SW in Seattle. This location was a half block away from where the brothers were born and raised on SW Findlay Street.
As the company grew they needed to expand and a new location was needed to help facilitate this growth. They also wanted to be able to offer better pricing to their customers by buying certain items in bulk, so they purchased a property that had both office space and a warehouse. This new location was still about a mile from their previous office and childhood home. That property is located on Airport Way S in Seattle, just south of Spokane Street. Unknown at the time, was that the adjacent property just east on the other side of the railroad tracks, was previously owned by their great-grandparents. This was discovered only after their grandmother visited their new office space. There is a picture of this farmhouse with their grandma in it, just a mere child. Click here to see it. The brothers were very excited at this discovery. Similar to their previous office it was again located near a previous home of the family. It was just like coming home again – their roofing company would conduct business adjacent to property associated with their family’s legacy. They felt it was destiny. They determined that this will be the new home of the company indefinitely.
