The last century can be summed up in two words – invention and innovation. Ettel & Franz has contributed to the previous century by doing what we do best – the roofs. Having been part of the roofing industry for over 100 years, we have learned the best techniques and methods to build and maintain roofs.
A.G. Ettel first started the company in 1905 and began a partnership with C.F Franz a few years later. They both were committed to making a company that would stand the test of time. Ettel & Franz has had a history of great employees who came to view the company as an extension of their families.
A major reason for Ettel & Franz scaling phenomenal heights can be attributed to its employees. They are dedicated to delivering the best service to all our clients. Several years ago, when a tornado hit Roseville and ripped the State Farm Insurance building roof, we were called to deal with the emergency.
We had a temporary roof in place within a day, and State Farm was back in business in no time. That was possible only because, as a team, we worked through the night to ensure the work gets done promptly. As a result, we were given the contract to install a permanent roof as well.
The legacy we have created is a steppingstone for the future. Our past provides a great heritage and depth of experience we can build on. We strive to serve our clients with the same dedication and excellence for another 100 years.
We strive to align ourselves with the most prominent roofing product manufacturers — those who offer a superior quality product and have the warranty to back it up. Then we push ourselves to stay at the cutting edge of applied knowledge. Our commitment to being a leader in craftsmanship has earned us distinctions such as GAF Master Roofing Contractor and the prestigious Hall Of Fame Award from Carlisle Syntec for installing over 250 perfect EPDM rubber roofs.
The foremen who have been in the industry for many years lead our crew. They and all our employees are the kind of people you can count on to get the job done and do it right. We've retained the best employees in the business by successfully creating a work environment that has made us known throughout the twin cities as a great place to work.
