A TRADITION OF FAMILY. A FAMILY OF VALUES.
When W.L. Ridout moved from Virginia to Washington State in 1905 he never knew he was landing in the heart of "wood cedar shingle" country. By the age of 16, he had mastered the skill of applying wood shingles and was soon traveling state-to-state, supervising the construction of large buildings. But when Bay Area contractors discovered that he could roof an 1800 square foot home in just three days instead of the usual eleven, W.L. became very popular with local builders. So popular that he settled in Alameda and started W.L. Ridout Roofing, Shingling Contractor. That was 1922. Four generations and over 80 years later, Ridout Roofing has installed more than 12 million "squares" of roofing material. When Steve Ridout comes to work each morning, he does so knowing that he’s managing the same company that his father, Al, and his grandfather, W.C., built-up over the course of eighty years and his great- grandfather, W.L., began in 1922. Since then, no other company has roofed as many homes as Ridout — over 600,000 in the Greater Bay Area.


OLD WORLD CRAFTSMANSHIP IS STILL ALIVE AT AT RIDOUT ROOFING.
"Working your way up the ladder" is nothing unusual at Ridout. Our trained employees, some of whom have been with the company over 30 years, are as familiar with 150 year old hand application methods and tools as they are with today’s state-of-the-art equipment. Ridout is the oldest wood applicator in the state (maybe in the country). We have developed unique methods such as rolling off old shake roofs in order to minimize debris on the ground, in the attic and in the air. We’re one of the few roofing companies that still apply imported slate roofs with the same efficiency and professionalism as other materials, and we have the equipment to do just about any job. From scissor trucks that raise the entire truck bed 16 feet into the air to forklifts that can reach 54 feet.

 

 

THE RIDOUT SIGNATURE
Just like a personal signature, you can spot a a roof by the custom cut ridge piece fitted on every home. It symbolizes the overriding reason for our success: our attention to detail, pride in workmanship, and the attitude that says we will do whatever it takes to do the best job, under the safest conditions, with the best people and equipment in the business.

    ResidentialRoofingImageNo COMMISSIONS, No PRESSURE.

    While other companies employ commissioned salespeople without any construction knowledge, every person on the Ridout sales staff is salaried and an experienced roofer first. You’ll never feel pressured into making a decision, but you will be advised about any potential roofing problems before they arise.

    SAFETY, SUPERVISION & SUPPLIES.
    Safety: Ridout Roofing prides itself in jobsite safety. For example, nearly every city inspector requires that ladders remain up and in front of a residence for various inspections. So Ridout developed a unique method of securing ladders with plywood to discourage children from mischief and possible injury. Painting the top three feet of the ladder also reminds our employees of OSHA regulations.

    Supervision: Besides local ordinances, every roof installed by Ridout must first pass Ridout’s own inspection by in-house inspectors. Only when the roof is certified does each homeowner, homebuilder or property owner receive a written copy of the inspection report.

    Supplies: In order to eliminate the need for filing costly liens with other material suppliers, Ridout started our own supply company, East Bay Supply. We save homeowners time and money by running our own freight trucks and negotiating large volume deals with national manufacturers.

    UNION ONLY.
    In order to attract and retain “career professionals” rather than temporary, non-union laborers, Ridout has offered medical, vacation, and retirement benefits to all of our union roofers since 1936. They not only do a better job, but they stay longer, work harder, and deliver a superior product toour customers.
