Naperville Based Showalter Roofing Celebrating Four Decades of Customer Trust, Quality Work, and Philanthropy

The practice of giving back isn’t new to Showalter Roofing. For forty years, the employees and leadership of the company have prioritized the core value of giving generously. Since the beginning, the company has always placed emphasis on making a difference in the lives of their employees as well as the communities of the people that they serve. From sponsoring youth sports camps and founding their own 501(c)3 charity [A Roof Over Your Head — www.donatetoaroof.org], to being honored as the State’s largest pro bono service provider for Habitat For Humanity, Showalter makes a point of never forgetting what success and influence should truly be used for: helping others. In fact, Showalter was recently recognized for their philanthropic work, by receiving the 2019 Community Involvement Award presented by the National Roofing Contractor’s Association. The NRCA represents nearly 3,500 companies, in all 50 states and over 53 countries. Their Community Involvement Award is presented to the member business who has made community a priority and given back in an exemplary way.


A Trusted Local Fixture for 40 Years

Showalter Roofing has reached an exciting milestone as the company celebrates forty years providing the Chicagoland area with high quality roofing services and exceptional customer service. Through Showalter’s dedication to doing things the right way— the “Showalter Way,” and putting their customers first, the company has come a long way from their humble beginnings in 1979

Since then, Showalter has grown to nearly 60 employees in four departments (Low Slope, Steep Slope, Repairs/Maintenance, and Architectural Sheet Metal) servicing both residential and commercial markets. This ability to meet any and all of their customers’ roofing needs, is a rarity in the industry.
“The reason that we have four different departments is to be able to provide solutions to our customers that have a wide array of roofing needs so that they don’t have to call three different companies when they need work done,” President and CEO CJ Martin says. “Showalter Roofing can handle virtually all of a customer’s needs.”

Looking to the Future
So what do the next forty years have in store for Showalter? The company believes that its founding philosophy of “Rising to Great Heights to Serve You” will continue to ring true, and help drive growth and expansion into other markets, particularly the Knoxville, TN area.

Over the course of their forty year history, Showalter has consistently invested in their employees, their industry, and in their community, and they seek to continue to reap the benefits of a doing business the right way for years to come.
