Meet "Rod the Roofer"

Rod was originally from Pennsylvania, Philadelphia to be exact, the City of Brotherly Love. He moved to Southern California in August of 1977 and brought that brotherly love right along with him! He began in the roofing industry in September 1978.

Before launching Blue Shoe Roofing in 2002, he spent 22 years working for several large, corporate roofing contracting firms in both L.A. and Orange County gaining a wealth of valuable experience.

But when he began Blue Shoe Roofing, he decided that his business would be based on simple, old-fashioned customer service. He simply wanted to provide basic, no-nonsense service to homeowners, building owners, realtors and property management companies.

Now a lot of other companies will try to sell you services that you don’t need. Rod never did! Blue Shoe believes in fixing your roofing problems right the first time! You contact us to fix your roofing problem, and that’s what we’ll do.

When he started Blue Shoe Roofing, he didn’t have a lot of money for advertising. Yet slowly but surely, he built the business on referrals and word of mouth. For the first 10 years, all of our business was by word of mouth. Our mission is to make every effort to keep you satisfied and happy with our work so you can tell your friends, neighbors, family and business associates. We believe in the old saying, “A happy customer will tell his friends, an unhappy customer will tell the world.”

Rod’s legacy lives on.

Story Behind the Name

“From Mu Shu to Blue Shoe”
I was at a Panda Express Restaurant for lunch with a buddy of mine and asked him for ideas on a business name for my Roofing Company. As we were sitting at the table he was staring at the menu hanging from the ceiling behind the cashier. After several moments of silence he blurted out jokingly: "Mu Shu", from which I heard, Blue Shoe. I told Randy, "This is great, I can see my trucks, I can see T-shirts, this is great! He looked very surprised and asked me, "What did you hear me say ?" To which I said, "You said, 'Blue Shoe'". He replied, "No… look at the Menu!!" As I turned to see the Menu, I saw it listed, "Mu Shu Chicken or Pork". I said, "Randy, I really thought I heard you say, 'Blue Shoe'". For the next couple of days, everyone we told this story to, loved it!
And that's how Blue Shoe Roofing was born!
