Crown Roofing has recently received recognition for being best three among Roofing Contractors in Sacramento. Three Best Rated uses a 50-point inspection system which includes everything from evaluating reputation, history, complaints, local reviews, customer satisfaction, trust and cost to establish ranking. Having served in the roofing business for more than 40 years, the Crown Roofing Team is extremely pleased to receive this recognition.
The Crown Roofing commitment to excellence has deep roots stemming from the late 1950's when Tommy Claunch held the position of Lead Superintendent for Crown Roofing, a large company for it's day with roofing operations spanning from San Francisco to San Diego. After leaving Crown Roofing in 1966 Tommy created Alpine Roofing with two partners which focused on tract housing in the greater Los Angeles basin, keeping him slightly closer to home and his family of five. Tommy struck out on his own in 1971 as Claunch Roofing Co. and incorporated in 1973 with his eldest son Woody joining the operation.
Tommy Claunch continued his focus in the tract housing industry while moving towards Ventura and Santa Barbara Counties with a number of established housing developers who respected his quickness, efficiency, and professionalism. Tommy’s operation reached heights of 150 employees, including four sons now, during the late 1970’s and yet another housing boom. As the economy waned by 1980, which significantly affected the housing industry, this allowed Claunch Roofing Inc. to downsize, reorganize, and adapt to the changing roofing materials being introduced.
The early 1980’s saw two of Tommy’s sons move on to college and the military creating successful careers for themselves, leaving Tommy, Woody, Jeff, and a workforce of approximately fifteen men. During the 1980’s the tract housing market was changing in many ways. For example, tract homes were now being built 25-50 at a time instead of 250-500, concrete tile and asphalt shingles were now dominating over wood shake roofing, and union employees were being replaced by nonunion workers. These factors contributed to our change in focus toward the residential re-roofing market by the early 1990’s.
Claunch Roofing Inc. experienced significant change in 2007 when Jeff Claunch relocated the operation to the greater Sacramento region in search of a new sustainable re-roofing market, where the “dba” of Crown Roofing was re-established, honoring his father’s roots. Through persistence, dedicated team work, and commitment to excellence Crown Roofing flourished over the next 10 years in Sacramento and continues today, establishing themselves as a leader in the local Sacramento re-roofing community and is honored in being recognized as a “Three Best” re-roofing contractor in the greater Sacramento region. Crown Roofing proudly continues to embody the qualities, traits, and values established by Tommy Claunch and strives daily to live up to his high standards of excellence.
Crown Roofing receives recognition for being rated best three among Roofing Contractors in Sacramento using an evaluation system which uses history, local reviews, customer satisfaction, trust and roofing cost as evaluation criteria.
