About Roofsmith Restoration

Roofsmith Restoration was born in the summer of 2010, while the recession was on. High quality tradesmen were sitting home due to the collapse of the home building market here in North East Ohio. The idea of putting these master craftsmen back to work was the brainchild of Mike Farist. He saw the need these men had to apply their years of experience and tradecraft, and the need that homeowners had to find a company that they could trust employing people passionate about performing with excellence. From humble beginnings, Roofsmith has quietly grown into a small but thriving roofing and restoration company, servicing both residential homeowners and commercial property owners.

From the very first Amish crew that put on the very first roof; Roofsmith has adhered to a very old, simple, and powerful business model. Treat everyone in the loop of a project as important, and in fact as slightly more important than the company itself. This applies to the customer, the men performing the work, the estimators measuring and figuring out the job, and it even applies to the manufacturers and suppliers of the materials used. By putting all these folks higher than ourselves, we have created a family of employees, suppliers, and customers that have guaranteed success.

It is this commitment to others that has fueled our growth during the last 5 years. We really care about our property owners satisfaction from the estimator to the office staff to the crews performing the work.

In short, at Roofsmith Restoration, your project is our passion!

About the Owner

Owner Mike Farist

Mike Farist

Roofsmith Restoration began its journey in 1990 when Mike Farist installed his first shingles on his first roofing job in Charlottesville, VA. Mike began a journey that may of falling in love with construction and all things tools. He continued to frame and roof through college and after spending about 5 years in college and another 5 years in penance, he rejoined the roofing and construction business in 2008.

His hands-on experience led to amazing growth and construction from the moment he reengaged with roofing in 2008 and after a rough experiment in partnership, he launched his own roofing, exterior and remodeling business in the spring of 2010 and has never looked back since.

In a very blue collar industry (God bless us), Mike has taken a very white collar approach to the exteriors business. Training, certification, learning, improvement and technology: these, along with the craftsmen who lay their lives down every day to get the job done, are the bedrock foundation upon which Mike has built his business. Mike has blended old world craftsmanship with a commitment to state of the art materials and best in class technology to provide a second to none property renovation experience.
