Schmidt Roofing Turns 30 Years Old!

A lot can happen in 30 years. Back in 1991, the average cost of a home was about $12,000, 30-year fixed mortgage rates were 9.25%, and the median U.S. household income was about $53,025. It was also the year Raiders of the Lost Ark was released in theaters, the first IBM PC was invented and, you guessed it, Schmidt Roofing officially opened its doors! 

On a side note, we’re happy that many people who took out 30-year mortgages in 1981 have finally paid off the balance on their home! 

Looking Back on Our History

30 years ago, we started our family-owned roofing and exteriors business to help make our community a better place to live. We wanted to improve the homes and businesses of our neighbors, one project at a time.  

More than 10,000 jobs later, we still hold true to our family values, and we are proud of what we have accomplished over the course of the past three decades. In this time, we have extended our service area all over the state of Minnesota and even service homes and businesses in Iowa, Wisconsin, Illinois, and South Dakota. From roofing to siding, windows gutters, and so much more, we have helped customers improve the value and appeal of the property they own, and we thank them for their business, support, and the many kind words they have left us over the years. 

Kind Words from Our Customers

“Exceptional 5-star service. Schmidt Roofing is a team that has proven you can trust to deliver in exceeding your expectations. After being late to inquire with my insurance company regarding a loss claim for storm damage, Schmidt was up against a strict timeline and challenged with dealing with a rigorous insurance company. Schmidt’s Senior Estimate Specialist, Chris Faber, was there to provide support at every turn. Much like a veteran quarterback, Chris had the experience, vision and communication prowess to make my wife and I feel at ease, all the while advancing the process by accounting for those complex issues that stood in the way. It’s clear that Schmidt has garnered one of the best Estimators in the business with Chris Faber! I recommend asking for him by name. A+ service! 

Jeff Haas was our Field Representative. Jeff was there to meet with our insurance adjuster at our home. His experience & rapport was obvious — he was there to provide helpful samples, explain the benefits of the products & materials, and helped us make informed and stylistic choices in materials that met our needs.  

All deadlines were met. Work was completed relatively seamlessly as expected with minimal disruption of our home. Pricing, options and invoicing was easy to understand. To top it off, our brand-new roof, matching gutters and windows look amazing and have provided a great boost to our home’s curb appeal. The quality of the craftsmanship, materials and color coordination have instantly added substantial value to our home. Schmidt Roofing team is like a helpful friend or neighbor. They come with strong recommendation. A+ Thank you, cheers to all at Team Schmidt!” – Andrew Owen 


“Wow! Wow! Wow! What a great company. The roofers showed up at 07:30, had the old roof off by 09:00 and were done by 5PM. That included several repairs to the decking and new install. The cleanup was amazing. They even cleaned under the rolloff. Ben Schmidt shows the honesty, integrity and workmanship that is seldom seen in business anymore. He made me feel like I was his only customer. He guided me through the process and made it easy. His corporate help even took care of all the insurance issues. I literally had to do nothing but cash the checks from the insurance. I would not only recommend Schmidt Roofing but would add, shame on you if you chose some else.” – Brant Baker 


I was connected with the estimator at Schmidt Roofing IMMEDIATELY. No nonsense, no upsell. They were thorough, and a good communicator. The estimate was spot on, reasonable, and MUCH less than anyone else’s. The work was done efficiently, on time, and the cleanup was awesome. We were selling the house and needed a total roof tear-off, which was a contingency on the pending sale. Time was a factor, and we felt like the Schmidt crew had our backs the whole time. We are very grateful! – Larry and Laura W
