Holt Roofing Company is celebrating 70 years of roofing! Brother and Sister team Mark and Beth Holt are the third generation co-owners of Holt Roofing Co., a family owned and operated business established in 1947.
Holt Roofing Company provides residential and commercial roofing services throughout Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan.
“My grandfather, Floyd Holt, started the business 70 years ago as a residential roofing contractor,” Beth explains. “He began Holt Roofing while working out of his basement for builders and insurance companies.”
When Floyd passed away unexpectedly in 1969, Jack and Cynthia Holt along with their five children moved back to Toledo to run the business. “My parents, Jack and Cynthia, took over for my grandfather. My father expanded the business to include commercial roofing in the early 80’s.”
Although Jack and Cynthia have stepped away from the operational side of Holt, Beth says, “[Jack] is here every day. He’s been working the commercial side of the business and continues to bid new construction. He also has a drone that he flies to check out work in-progress. He’s very passionate about roofing.”
Today, the company, now run by Beth and Mark Holt, remains true to its original value-based mission. Beth puts in plain words, “We [Mark and I] started from the ground-up doing clean up, then working our way up the ladder to understand all aspects of roofing. As partners, customer service is what we strive for. We treat our customers just like we want to be treated. We stand behind our work and we’re very honest. We care.”
No roofing job is too big or too small for Holt Roofing Company’s team. Holt’s experts not only specialize in residential and commercial work but also repair work. “We do everything from the eaves on up,” Beth explains. Aside from full tear offs and replacements, Holt’s service offerings include gutter and skylight installation, chimney flashing, and custom metal work. “We have a sheet metal shop on the premises where we can custom-make flashing and metal edging.”
As Owens Corning™ Platinum Preferred Shingle Installers as well as CertainTeed™ Master Shingle Applicators, Holt’s residential team not only promises quality work, but also ensures that customers will receive the best warranties manufacturers have to offer as well as one of the best workmanship warranties in the area.
On the commercial side, Holt Roofing Company is a licensed Firestone™ Red Shield Contractor and a Carlisle SynTec™ Preferred Applicator. “We install and repair EPDM Rubber, Modified Bitumen, TPO, PVC, as well as some metal roofing,” Beth says. Additionally, Holt’s custom metal work allows them to stand out among other area contractors.
Licensed, Bonded and Insured, Holt Roofing Company employs approximately 20 individuals with separate crews for residential roofing, commercial roofing, and roof repairs. Mark Holt and Zach Jackson are the main residential contacts while Jack, Beth Holt, and Kelly Mayhugh handle everything commercial.
Offering free estimates, Holt Roofing continues to grow and also serve its loyal customer base. “We are not those high pressure sales people. We’re going to see if we can fix it first. If it can’t be fixed, then we go to [measuring and estimating for] a new roof,” Beth states. “The guys are very honest. If you don’t need something, they won’t try to sell it to you. They’ll tell you how many years you’ve got left before it needs replaced…Mark and I are trying to make our parents proud, and keep our grandfather’s legacy going. He also believed in treating people like you want to be treated.”
Both Beth and Mark reside with their families in Bedford.
