Family Business

It was 1934 – in the grip of the Great Depression-that Elmer W. Matthews started Matthews Roofing Company Inc. in Chicago. In such a difficult economic environment, Mr. Matthews realized full well that only through unflagging dedication to service, excellence of workmanship, quality materials, unwavering dependability and affordable pricing could his business thrive. Since that time, those cornerstones have guided the family’s business principles in every generation.

Today, Matthews Roofing stands alone as Chicagoland’s premier roofing contractor, specializing in commercial, industrial, institutional, and residential roofing. And though our commitment to excellence has been steadfast throughout our history, our methods and our capacities have advanced dramatically.
