JP Witherow Roofing Company

A Rich History and a Bright Future

J.P. Witherow moved from Pennsylvania to San Diego in the late 1920's to take advantage of the city's growing opportunities. After working for a local painting and roofing contractor, J.P.'s entrepreneurial spirit kicked in and he took the courageous leap of starting his own company. This picture of the original location (circa 1935) is proudly displayed in our offices today.

J.P. operated the company until he passed away in 1986. His son, Richard took the helm and led further expansion of the company until a couple of years ago. It has continued to flourish in the expanding San Diego community for more than 80 years.

The legacy continues with new ownership and an eye on the future!

Richard Witherow passed the baton to his trusted business manager, Doug Barry and local businessman Mark Larson in 2015. They and their staff are proud to continue and expand on the great legacy of J.P. Witherow Roofing Company serving San Diego County homeowners and businesses.
