Simon Roofing & Construction

Still doing things right

A few years ago, When Our Town first spoke with Doug Simon, CEO of Simon Roofing & Construction, a recurring theme – and a company philosophy – emerged: “Do things right.”

That hasn’t changed, says company founder Terry Simon, Doug’s dad and mentor.

As its mission statement reflects, Simon Roofing is committed to providing top-quality products at the best price possible, and completing the job in a timely manner with knowledgeable, certified installation crews. Customer testimonials take it a step farther, consistently citing the Simon Roofing crew’s consideration and respect for homeowners and their property.

Perhaps that’s because, as a local company, Simon Roofing wants to do well by its neighbors throughout the greater Lansing area.

“We like to take care of local people,” says Terry. “When we do what we’re supposed to do, the referrals will come.”

Indeed they do. Referrals are really up, Terry says, even from the solid pace the company enjoyed just a few years ago. And it keeps the company’s crews hopping.

“We want guys that bring their A game,” he says. And both he and Doug know what an A game looks like.

“It’s been 41 years since I put my first roof on, back in the hand-nailing days,” Terry says. And Doug began following in his dad’s work boots as a teen. Hundreds of roofs later, they are still hands-on owners – although these days, Terry says, he’s much more likely to be found on a calculator doing estimates than on a roof.

From its start in 1990 as a residential roofing company, Simon Roofing & Construction has expanded its expertise to include windows, siding, gutters and insulation, and does some commercial work as well. Doug attributes this growth largely to demand from happy customers, who have found in Simon Roofing a trusted contractor.
