Our story

In the early 2000’s, a twelve-year-old Richard Nelson was awoken early and told he’d be joining the family business — he was on a roof by the afternoon, thus becoming a third-generation roofer.

Richard spent his summers on job sites, hoisting bundles as a kid to eventually becoming an installer. Fast forward to his mid 20’s, Richard decided to take a position at a larger roofing company as a sales person. It was then when he realized the inefficiencies, and he understood the time and money it was costing contractors and homeowners and knew something needed to change.

With a vision of building the most trusted roofing platform in the world, he quit his job, partnered with CTO Kevin Redman and started Roofr in 2016.

By 2017, Roofr was admitted to Y Combinator, propelling Roofr into the tech-world spotlight and allowing Roofr to raise millions of dollars in venture capital funding from Crosslink Capital, Bullpen Capital and many other high-profile investors. Today, Roofr operates on a multinational level, serving thousands of roofing contractors across North America.
