Our History

photocolumn2Since 1939, Ruff Roofers has achieved a solid reputation as a skilled and experienced contractor.

Using a philosophy provided by our founder Charles “Buck” Ruff of “creating the standard by which others are judged,” Ruff Roofers is respected among the industry by both colleagues and clients.

At Ruff Roofers Inc., we believe our success is primarily based on the service provided by our professionals. The educational and training levels attained by our key personnel are at the highest standards. We do as much development for our personnel as we do for our long term clients. Therefore, we apply construction management with an owner’s approach and maintain our clients trust by our service and years of proven quality workmanship.

Whatever the roofing need; built-up, single-ply, metal, slate, tile, or asphalt shingle, Ruff Roofers has the versatility in management and application capabilities to be competitive on all roofing projects. In fact, we base our success on cooperation and repeat business with the many satisfied clients that we continually produce.

For over 60 years, Ruff Roofers has crowned many of Maryland’s finest buildings including: The State House, Baltimore City Hall, Baltimore Arena, and various other universities, colleges, hospitals, churches, schools, and other commercial establishments.

Our experience with roofing systems of all types, on all types of buildings over many years, leads us to caution against relying too heavily on any warranty. A warranty is not a satisfactory substitute for good roofing design and a good roofing contractor. More important points to consider are a roofing system’s performance and a contractor’s track record.
