Contreras Roofing is a family-owned company serving South Florida for more than 25 years. Founder Roberto Contreras Sr. started the company with one truck and two assistants, building and repairing roofs in Coral Gables, Miami and Miami Beach.
Slowly, Contreras Roofing grew through word of mouth referrals due to the company’s well- maintained service, quick response time and immaculate credit with suppliers – three attributes that hold true today. In its first ten years of existence, Contreras Roofing repaired and built 2,000 to 3,000 residential, commercial and heavy industry roofs in Miami-Dade County.
In 1992, when Hurricane Andrew hit, the company grew from two trucks to a fleet of five crews, one specializing in repair, tear off and carpentry, another in hot mopping and built up roof systems, and tile installation, shingle installation. In a two-year span following the devastating storm, Contreras Roofing worked six days week, sometimes seven, to repair and replace roofs on 1,000 residential houses and 75 commercial buildings. The crew grew from 15 to 20 roofers.
In 1996, Contreras Roofing moved into its current base of operations in the heart of Midtown Miami. Four years later, Roberto Sr. relinquished control to his son, Roberto C. Contreras Jr. who has maintained the high level of standard Contreras Roofing built over the past three decades. Today Junior is the corporation’s president. He is assisted by family members and supervisors Francisco Contreras, Gilberto Contreras and Osvaldo Gonzalez.
The company grew again in 2005, after Hurricane Wilma hit the South Florida region, working with four crews, 11 pick-up trucks, four hot tar kettles, and state of the art equipment to perform any type of roof work. Contreras Roofing repaired and replaced 21 commercial buildings and over 50 residential houses damaged by Wilma. The company also opened a satellite office in Mississippi after Hurricane Katrina to help in the recovery there. Contreras Roofing has maintained a stellar reputation all our creditors, suppliers, jurisdictions and clients.
