In 2020, third generation Floridian, Matt Criswell, the President/Owner of one of Central Florida’s most well-respected commercial roofing companies, WeatherShield Roofing Group, felt he had a calling to serve his community in a parallel way. He was frustrated when he was getting calls from friends and family about other residential roofers not doing what they were contracted or paid to do and making a bad name for other upstanding companies. WeatherShield had been successful in the commercial, industrial and retail sector since 1995, thus Marathon Roofing and Contracting, Inc. was created.
Unbeknownst to most, Marathon describes a lot about the company in one phrase. MRC is Matt’s births initials, Marathon is a place his family has enjoyed for countless years, and going the extra distance is what he wanted to establish in the company he was embarking to create.
With the mission of making a greater impact on the communities and families around him, Matt built this company to demonstrate how roofing can and should be done. He believes that any business is a family business if you treat everyone like family. When it comes to roofing, putting family first means seeing a house not just as a building that needs a roof or as a dollar amount to sell, but as a home that needs to be protected in order for a family to thrive. We want our business to thrive, just as we want our employees to thrive, just as we want your family to thrive, just as we want our communities to thrive. They are all intertwined and that is why we treat everyone like family. We serve you above the rest, so that everyone is uplifted.
