Our Mission

We at Borntrager Roofing, Inc. have a simple philosophy for success. Employ experienced people, use the best materials available to the industry, provide service that is second to none, and keep prices competitive. This philosophy has made us successful, and we fully intend to keep it that way.

What We Do

Borntrager Enterprises, Inc. was founded in 1978 by its former president, Lee Borntrager, and transitioned to its current President and owners, Derick and Talia (Lee’s daughter) Yeoman, who took over in 2022.  The couple wanted to continue the family business that has been thriving for over 40 years.  Their passion to provide a valued service to a building/owner needing a new roof through exceptional products and quality workmanship will continue to carry on Borntrager’s legacy.

Borntrager specializes in marketing and installing high-quality single-ply flat roof systems, including custom-fabricated sheet metal for commercial and industrial clientele in Northern Indiana and Southern Michigan. The company also offers preventative maintenance programs for existing flat roof coverings, in-depth flat roof surveys, and assistance in budgeting for long and short-term flat roof replacement programs.

We believe that detailed planning results in a job well done. Every project is unique in itself – that is why, at Borntrager Inc., we painstakingly examine every square inch of roof we install. We search for any problem areas that may arise and prevent future problems. We, unlike many contractors, go above and beyond the norm by taking core samples, conducting pull tests, and checking for moisture content. These procedures allow us to design a flat roofing system for you that will not only meet but exceed the manufacturer’s specifications and any specified warranties. At Borntrager Inc., we believe that expertise in planning is one of the most important aspects of any project we undertake.

Borntrager Inc. has a solid reputation for producing top-quality work on time and within budget. We employ dependable staff that have decades of flat roofing experience. Our staff is continually trained and kept abreast of the latest technology. Borntrager Inc. uses only the highest grade, most energy-efficient roofing materials available to the industry. Staying on top of the latest techniques and installation methods and seeing that our staff is trained to apply and install expertly keeps us a leader in the industry. These things enable us to deliver the quality you expect for your investment.
