Local roofing contractor Guardian Roofing (www.guardianroofing.com) today announced the recent acquisition of Seattle-based roofing contractor competitor Jorve Roofing (www.Jorve.com). Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Founded in 2005, Guardian is a local, family-owned roofing contractor led by roofing industry veterans, and husband-and-wife team, Lori and Matt Swanson. The firm specializes in roof repairs, roof replacements, inspections, maintenance and moss proofing. Guardian employs 50 full-time technicians, sales professionals and staff, and gained 25 new full-time team members with the acquisition of Jorve. While the companies have been operating as separate brands, over time, the two businesses will begin to operate solely under the Guardian brand.
This is Guardian’s first acquisition and represents a shift for the company into a growth strategy that will focus on expanding its footprint across Washington State, as well as into Oregon and Idaho. The firm is also considering expanding Guardian’s line of services.
“As an iconic Pacific Northwest brand with a strong reputation, Jorve was a natural fit for acquisition to help us grow our local footprint,” said Guardian Roofing Founder and Co-Owner Matt Swanson. “We’ve always had a strong presence in Pierce County, and Jorve has the same strong brand awareness in King County—which made the acquisition a great fit.”
“We’ve been looking for the right opportunity to expand our business and when we learned that Jorve’s owner was thinking about transitioning out of the roofing industry, it seemed like the perfect fit,” continued Guardian Roofing Founder and Co-Owner Lori Swanson. “We’re committed to providing excellent ongoing care to Jorve’s customers and have welcomed their talented team members to ours.”
The Guardian founders have focused their fast-growing firm around the mission of helping customers solve their roofing problems holistically—focusing equally on both repairs and replacement. Guardian also places a strong emphasis on working hard to help homeowners understand the value of roof inspections and regular maintenance conducted by their highly-trained technical staff.
The Guardian team is actively hiring new members in the sales, service and replacement teams.
