Our History

How many companies (let alone contractors) do you know that have been in business for over 142 years? We can name at least one Winding Roofing Company, Inc. Winding Roofing Company is the oldest continuously operating roofing contractor in Wisconsin, having been established in 1873 by George Winding, a Danish immigrant. In 1892, George served as the president of the National Roofing Contractors Association. In more recent times, Fred Winding, Sr., grandson of George, led the company for many years. Fred was a member of the Rotary Club of Milwaukee for 64 years. He was past president of the Metropolitan Milwaukee Association of Commerce, a director of the Better Business Bureau and the Zoological Society of Milwaukee County. The Winding Family operated the company for nearly 100 years.

In 1972, Fred retired and sold the company to the Schaefer Family. Under the leadership of president, Donald W. Schaefer, the company has continued its longstanding tradition of providing the same outstanding service and quality to businesses large and small. The company continues to be family-owned and operated.

In 2005, Winding Roofing acquired W.J. Butzen Roofing & Sheet Metal, which was founded by William J. (Bill) Butzen in 1979. This merger has added the architectural sheet metal and panel expertise of the former Butzen Roofing to the Winding Roofing list of in-house capabilities.

Winding Roofing Company has survived and thrived during the economic ups and downs over our long history, by providing our customers with the highest quality products and most dependable service available. No project is too small or too large for our experienced roofing craftsmen or equipment capabilities. The best-designed roofing products and systems on the market are still only as good as the people installing them. Our installers are some of the best-trained and most experienced craftsmen in the industry, assuring you of a quality, hassle-free job.

Our sales, estimating, and project management team has numerous years of industry experience and a broad knowledge of the various types of roof systems available. They are uniquely qualified to assist you in determining what system will best fit your needs and budget.

"Deal with people you know" the professionals at Winding Roofing Company, the oldest and best commercial roofing contractor in Wisconsin.
