A Shelter of Dreams: The Reliance Roofing and Siding Story

Building More Than Just Roofs

In the heart of Pennsylvania, where the changing seasons test the mettle of every home, a small company with big dreams began its journey. Reliance Roofing and Siding wasn’t just about installing shingles or fixing leaks; it was about building a legacy of trust and excellence.

The story begins with Mike, a third-generation roofer who learned the trade from his father and grandfather. Growing up in Ambler, PA, Mike witnessed firsthand the struggles of homeowners battling against the elements. He dreamed of a company that would do more than just repair roofs—it would provide peace of mind.

The Foundation of Trust

In 2005, Mike’s dream became a reality when he founded Reliance Roofing and Siding. Starting with just a small crew and a single truck, the company began serving communities like Lower Gwynedd and Radnor. Word of their exceptional craftsmanship and dedication spread quickly.

One of their first major projects was for the Johnsons in Wayne, PA. The family had been struggling with a leaky roof for years, enduring bucket-filled nights during rainstorms. When Reliance completed the new roof installation, Mrs. Johnson tearfully exclaimed, “For the first time in years, I can sleep peacefully when it rains!”

Growing Through Challenges

As the company grew, so did the challenges. The economic downturn of 2008 hit the construction industry hard. Many similar businesses in Huntington Valley and Bala Cynwyd were forced to close their doors. But Reliance stood firm, their commitment to quality and customer satisfaction becoming their lifeline.

During this time, they took on a project for a historic home in Radnor that other companies had deemed too complex. Through innovation and perseverance, they not only completed the job but also preserved the home’s architectural integrity, earning accolades from local historical societies.

A Community Partner

Reliance Roofing and Siding’s impact extended beyond residential roofing. They became active community partners, sponsoring local events and offering free roof inspections for low-income families. Their “Raise the Roof” program, which provided new roofs for deserving families in need, became an annual tradition in Lower Gwynedd.

Looking to the Future

Today, Reliance Roofing and Siding stands as a testament to the power of dedication and quality workmanship. From Ambler to Bala Cynwyd, their distinctive trucks are a common sight, bringing security and comfort to homes across Pennsylvania.

As Mike reflects on the journey, he says, “We’re not just in the business of roof replacement; we’re in the business of protecting dreams. Every home we work on is someone’s castle, and we treat it with the respect it deserves.”

The story of Reliance Roofing and Siding is more than a tale of business success. It’s a reminder that with passion, integrity, and a commitment to excellence, we can all build something that truly makes a difference in people’s lives.
