Lawson Roofing

Safety First Since 1907

About Us

History

After San Francisco’s disastrous 1906 earthquake, Frank Lawson opened up a small roofing company that has grown into The Lawson Roofing Company Inc., one of the leading roofing and waterproofing companies in the Bay Area and all of Northern California.

Since 1907, The Lawson Roofing Company Inc. has operated as a family owned business. After the passing of founder Frank Lawson, his son, Frank E. Lawson Sr., continued the operations. Today the third generation—Frank E. Lawson Jr. and Richard Lawson—are carrying on the family tradition.

Our motto is simple:

A commitment to a tradition of quality roofing and waterproofing services to satisfy customer needs.

We have been standing behind this motto for over one hundred years, and through diligence, professionalism, and experience, those commitments are met on a daily basis. Our promise to our employees is to provide them with skills, a safe work environment and benefits from being among the best at their trade. Our promise to our customers is to provide quality, durable work done in an affordable, respectful, timely and safe manner.

We pride ourselves in being a part of the community we serve and the industry in which we work. Our employees regularly demonstrate their commitment to our community through their participation in the annual donation of a roof for Rebuilding Together, during which the employees and management of The Lawson Roofing Company Inc. help a family in need put a good roof over their head.

The Lawson Roofing Company Inc. is a member in good standing of several local and national roofing and construction associations. This keeps us always on the leading edge of innovation and allows us to better serve our community and our customers. In addition, we support other local businesses whenever possible to help keep our community vibrant and economically healthy.
