Build a Better Relationship


Since 1979, we have set ourselves apart from our competitors by installing exceptional quality, premium roof systems that last. Our commercial and industrial roofing company in Columbus, Ohio, was founded on the solid principles of serving our customers with integrity.

It all began in 1979,

when George Reiss was applying his expertise as a technical roof inspector, training and certifying roofing companies to do quality installations. He met Les Heinlen, the original founder, while training the Division 7 Roofing staff. They struck up a lifelong friendship that extended beyond business and led George to accept Jesus Christ as his personal Lord and Savior. George found himself at a crossroads and sought God’s direction for his life. He soon moved to the Columbus area and joined forces with Les as Superintendent. In 1982, George purchased the company and further advanced it’s vision to provide commercial roofing services with the highest level of excellence and integrity.

With George’s knowledge of emerging roofing system materials and products, Division 7 Roofing grew as a pioneer in the field of heat-welded single ply membrane roofing systems. This type of system has earned Division 7 Roofing its excellent reputation for providing high quality roof installations for over 30 years. In the mid 1980’s, we diversified into other roofing systems including E.P.D.M systems, multiple heat-welded systems, modified bitumen systems, conventional built-up roofing systems and metal roofing.

A New Era of the Highest Quality

Due to George’s knowledge of advanced roofing system materials and products, our company became a pioneer in the field of heat-welded, fully adhered and mechanically attached, single-ply membrane roofing systems. These types of roof systems have earned us an excellent reputation for providing premium roof installations for more than 30 years.

In the mid 1980’s, we diversified. Our company began to specialize in other roofing systems, such as the following:

  • EPDM Systems
  • Multiple Heat-Welded Systems
  • Modified Bitumen Systems
  • Conventional Built-Up Roofing Systems
  • Metal Roofing

Our commitment to using premium roofing products and providing exceptional installations is unmatched. In fact, it is the cornerstone of our business model. Our experienced and dedicated employees also work with this mentality. That is, they care about the work they do. George can often be heard saying, “Our associates are our most important assets.” This is what you get when you hire Division 7 Roofing: industry-leading products, reliable roofing, and a highly skilled team.
