The History of Singleton Roofing & The Golden Rule of Roofing

Since 1969, Singleton Roofing has helped residents of Sarasota, Manatee, and Charlotte counties with all their roof repair and replacement needs. We are a fully licensed and insured family owned minority business with a history of timely service, courteous roofing contractors, and helpful customer service.

Our Heritage

In 1969, Orzel Singleton decided there was a great need in Sarasota. As a professional roofer, he installed most of the new roofs for the Amish builders in Sarasota County. However, he also saw many of his friends and neighbors being taken advantage of by dishonest “roof repair contractors.”

The sad part was that, for honest contractors like Orzel, he faced an uphill battle convincing people that he was different. That there really were honest contractors who believed in honest and integrity. That doing business meant doing right by others.

So, he decided to do something about it. He created a better way to treat customers by bringing expert roofing knowledge, honesty and integrity to his fellow Sarasotans. It’s that “Golden Rule of Roofing” that Singleton Roofing is founded upon. It’s also the same principle that Orzel passed onto his son, Alvin.

Our Present

When the time came for Alvin to take over the family business, he took the lessons of his father to heart. Now, more than 35 years later, the fairness and respect our roofing contractors give our customers is second nature. This sound moral foundation has helped Alvin expand Singleton Roofing into more than just a local roofing company. We’ve grown to become a positive influence in the Sarasota area. We support many local organizations such as the Miss Sarasota Softball, Sarasota High School, Booker High School , and Girls, Inc. Youth charities.

Our professional partnerships are also wide ranging. We are active members of roofing associations like SMRSA, FRSA, and NRCA. Alvin now serves as President of the FSRA and Amy is President of the SMRSA.

Our Future, Together

Just ask any homeowner in Sarasota who’s owned their home for a few years. Routine roof maintenance is a must. Since our humble beginnings, we’ve ensured that our roofing contractors stayed up to date with all the latest roofing technologies. In fact, Alvin strongly believes in constantly improving the service you receive. This is why we’re constantly updated our best practices through the knowledge gained through our memberships in the National Roofing Contractors Association and the Florida Roofing and Sheet Metal Contractors Association.

The Singleton Roofing tradition of helping Sarasota residents and property managers with their roof replacement and installation needs is now running three generations strong. Over the course of four decades and into the future, it will always be our pleasure to serve the people of Sarasota with quality, honest, and fair roofing services.
