The GreatWay Roofing Story: It’s all in the Family

by Rod Menzel

After graduating with a degree in finance from California State University, Northridge in 1992, I went to work in the banking industry and by 1998, after my wife Michelle gave birth to our first son, Austin, I realized I could use my professional experience and education to start my own business. My hope was to have time to coach my kids in sports one day and to work in an industry that I could make a real difference. The construction industry was one I had my eye on and so I decided to start a roofing company in Ventura County.

It was Austin’s birth that prompted my parents to move from Oregon to be near their first grandchild. My dad, Bill, began a new job in Ventura where he met Linda, a coworker whose husband Tony worked in the roofing industry. Tony and his brothers came to work for GreatWay Roofing a few months later, followed by my dad who joined the company to help with production, along with my mom, LaVonne, who jumped in to run the office. We must have been doing something right because in 2000, I hired my brothers-in-law, Matt and Martin. Shortly thereafter, Tony’s brother-in-law Jose, along with his brother and two cousins, joined the team. In 2001, after the birth of our second son, Brandon, Michelle left her position at a Fortune 500 company to come on board part-time to develop and execute our marketing and public relations strategies. And in 2005, Dawn, who Michelle and I met in Lamaze class, came to work as our new office manager.

Fast forward to today, some of our original team has moved on, but we remain a proud family-owned and operated company with Matt overseeing sales, customer relations and estimating as the general manager, Tony overseeing production, and Dawn continues to run the front office. Furthermore, Tony’s son Ozzy has joined the GreatWay staff as an estimator and Tony’s brother Rene and nephew Marco have been with us for a number of years as foremen. Additionally, Michelle remains focused on marketing and public relations on a part-time basis, while our sons Austin and Brandon are involved in the business in various capacities–primarily during summer breaks and holidays as they continue their education. We are truly a family unit and we are blessed to have a strong, unified presence that ensures the care of our customers.

We have successfully completed thousands of residential and commercial roofs since 1999, and we never could have done this without our “family” and a great team! I’ll always remember the first job we earned when the customer asked me how long we had been in business to which I replied, “You will be my first customer and I can’t afford to blow it!” Today we have the same attitude as we had in the beginning, and we tell our customers, “Expect A Great Experience,” which is the company motto and tagline. It’s one thing to say it, it is another to demonstrate it. We are proud of how we started and what our company has become. You can always trust that the GreatWay Roofing family will take care of yours. We look forward to helping you with your next roofing project.

What Our Clients Are Saying

Hank ConverseSimi Valley, CA

“I recently installed a roof. The job was done by GreatWay Roofing. They did a great job just like the name says. It was done in record time to beat the rain. They were professional and neat, cleaning up after themselves. I highly recommend and endorse them as a top quality Ventura County roofing contractor.”

Max & Sandi LipskySimi Valley, CA

“If you want a great looking roof, we recommend GreatWay Roofing. They took off our two layers of roof, replaced our termite rafters, and replaced it with a beautiful looking neat roof. Also, their workers meticulously cleaned-up and took all the old roof materials away. Finally, they were prompt and courteous from the workers to the salesman. So if you want a new professional looking roof, contact GreatWay Roofing Company first.”
