A Family Roofing Business for Three Generations
Our Story, Then & Now
Founded in 1958 by John B. “Jack” Colbert, Colbert Enterprises began as a restoration contractor for insurance companies into the 1960s. Then, the company was located in Alexandria, in downtown Del Ray,and concentrated on roofing and fencing. Later, Jack expanded his interests and opened a roofing supply house that could custom-cut roofing insulation.
In the early 1970s, the office and shop were moved a few blocks toward the city to E. Howell Avenue. The company ran a full-service sheet metal shop and roofing company out of what is now known as Potomac Yard.
Jack’s son, Jerry, joined the company in 1972 and began to grow the business. With its ongoing growth, the company needed more space. In 1980, Colbert Roofing left Alexandria and moved to its current location in Springfield. The offices and full-service mechanic and sheet metal shop allowed for more expansion. With the move, the company also wanted to solidify its brand and changed the name to Colbert Roofing Corporation.
From 1983 to 1990, Jerry had a successful run with his own full-service roof repair shop. In 1990, he returned and purchased the business from his father. A short period after, Jerry’s son, Chris, joined the company.
Since 1998, Chris has had a hands-on approach to the company and continues the success of this third-generation company. With an emphasis on personalized service, Colbert Roofing Corporation has been the area’s roofer of choice for decades and continues to dedicate its resources to serving the community.
