Leon Wipperfurth was born and raised on a farm outside of Lodi, Wisconsin. This is where he worked long hours helping his father on the family farm, and learned the valuable lessons of hard work. In 1978, he took a job working for a roofing and siding company and quickly became a foreman running his own crew. In the spring of 1983, Leon started his own business, Leon’s Roofing & Siding. He started out with one work truck, soon followed by one employee. He then took on challenges and learned how to replace windows and doors as well. Because Leon has always been honest and up front, strives to do the best job he can, and benefits from the longevity of his employees, area homeowners quickly started to pass his name around and business continued to improve. Thus in 1991, Leon’s Roofing & Siding became incorporated. The business has gone from one truck and two men, to a much larger and reputable business.
In February 2006, Leon’s son, Jason Wipperfurth, joined the business full time as Operations Manager. Jason started working for Leon’s Roofing & Siding Inc. at the age of 14, working summers all through high school and college. Jason received a degree in Business Economics and an additional degree in Business Management from Edgewood College in May of 2002, which has helped him serve the family business.
In March of 2007 another one of Leon’s son’s Adam joined the business full time as a Laborer. Adam starting working at the age of 14 working summers while in high school. Adam has achieved the skills to become a foreman on the jobsite, which he has been doing since spring of 2011.
Leon’s Roofing & Siding Inc. remains in Lodi, Wisconsin, where it continues to serve Madison and the surrounding areas. Leon, Jason, Adam and the hard working crews, take pride in what the business has become, as well as its humble beginnings.
