Commercial Beginnings

Saint Louis Residential Roofing grew from Saint Louis Roofing Co., a commercial roofing company. With more than 170 years in commercial roofing replacement and repairs, we decided to put roofs over the heads of the city’s homeowners. Our Saint Louis roofing experts provide both consultancy and installation expertise to 13 metro areas in both Missouri and Illinois.

Meet Our Team

Chris Jones

Chris Jones

A self-starter and detail-oriented person, Chris Jones takes a hands-on approach to business. He was raised by a small business owner and a grade school principal, making him value both education and accountability. Chris has flipped the narrative of business practice, prioritizing customer satisfaction and open communication over growth. 

Chris jump started his experience by opening his own painting company, focusing on high-end, intricate projects. His business grew under the mentality of understanding customer needs and adapting to fit them. Soon after, he was tapped by a leading home builder to create and manage a new division. Chris led the division from inception and allowed it to grow exponentially. The parent company saw his success and promoted him to the homebuilding division. There, Chris worked in all aspects leading teams in sales, estimates, land development, land acquisition, brokerage and business management. His success eventually opened the door to new opportunities in construction. 

Saint Louis Roofing, a highly respected and perhaps the oldest roofing contractor in the region, was ready for new ownership and an adaptation to the modern world. Chris took on the opportunity and has never looked back. He grew the company on a foundation of overall quality and projects flooded in — power plants for Ameren, a General Motors assembly plant, multiple projects with the St. Louis Archdiocese and more. 

Chris became well-known throughout the Saint Louis region for being a roofer and was encouraged to begin residential roofing. Along with childhood friend Rob Eilermann, he created Saint Louis Residential Roofing. Partnered together, the two have spent years providing safety and security to both city and suburban homeowners.

Rob Eilermann

The son of a small business owner and an educator, Rob Eliermann was raised to understand the value of hard work and customer service. His childhood was filled with selling newspapers and mowing lawns, spurring his entrepreneurial spirit. Rob came to understand that communication should remain at the forefront of all business practices and made that his mission as he entered the working world. 

Early on in his career, Rob became the multi-hat wearer at a leading local homebuilder. He personally established the company in new regions, bringing a warm experience to all those he interacted with. Rob eventually took charge of sales and marketing in five different markets with a sales team of over 120. Though successful, he still held a fire for entrepreneurship in the back of his mind. 

With childhood friend Chris Jones, Rob formulated a plan to provide Saint Louis area homeowners with the best roofing products and an incredible experience to match. 

Together, they set off to create a “white glove” residential roofing company that values interpersonal interactions — now known as Saint Louis Residential Roofing. 

Rob strives to lead customers through every step of the roofing process and take away from the stigma of large investments being a hassle. He believes that people are drawn to Saint Louis Residential Roofing for not only the best product, but the experience that comes with it.

After a nasty storm, I was worried my insurance wouldn’t take my claim. The St. Louis Residential Roofing team put me at ease and quickly helped me through the insurance process. Thank you Chris and Rob — my new roof is beautiful!

St. Louis Residential Roofing changed my view on roofing companies. From start to finish, they made the process simple. I met with them once and they took it from there.
