Who We Are
Since 1930, Homestead Roofing Company has been serving the roofing and exterior needs of New Jersey. We are a family-owned roofing business and have enjoyed being a trusted name in the local area for generations.
In 1930, Edward Homestead founded The Homestead Roofing Company in Ridgewood, NJ to provide residential and commercial roofing services to North Jersey homeowners and businesses. Gerald T. Cawley joined the team in 1963 after getting out of the US military, and took over the business in 1978. Following in his father’s footsteps, Gerald “Jerry” P Cawley began working at Homestead Roofing Company in 1982 and in 2007 became President of the company.
In 2023 Jeff Willner and his wife Tracy purchased Homestead Roofing Company from the Cawley family to continue its tradition of excellence in roofing for decades to come. Jeff has over a decade of experience in the residential and commercial construction industries as a licensed general contractor and builder. Additionally, as an entrepreneur Jeff has had several other successful home service businesses over the years.
We are proud to be celebrating over 90 years in business thanks, in part, to the quality of our workmanship and fair prices.
