About our Roofing and Restoration Company in Colorado Springs

Empire Roofing and Restoration is different for several reasons! We are a locally owned family business that not only cares about our company and staff but also wants to make sure that our customers are 100% satisfied from start to finish!


We always make sure we are available for any and all questions that our customers may have during and after the roofing or restoration process. Our company has been in business since 1990 and we aren’t going anywhere anytime soon!  We know there are major concerns in our communities with “fly by night” roofing companies that just chase storms.  Empire Roofing and Restoration is and always has been based in Colorado Springs. We proudly serve all of Southern Colorado from Denver to Pueblo and the surrounding counties.

We are pleased to now offer 24/7 EMERGENCY service for Water, Fire, and Smoke Damage.  Call us immediately in a crisis at 719-591-9200.

Our roots:
We are a local, family-owned and operated business. The company was started in 1990 by Joe Apsey-Vaughn, a Colorado Springs native, who has lived in Black Forest since 1992.

In the early days, Joe was just looking to work every day to provide for his family. He did estimates in the morning, and roofs in the afternoon, making him a true “one man shop”! He prided himself on being straight-forward and  fair with his customers and earning a reputation for always doing the right thing. It did not take long until word spread and Empire Roofing started to grow. In 1998, the company earned their first Excellence in Customer Service award from the Better Business Bureau and we still maintain our A+ rating year after year.

In June 2013 like many families in the area, Joe and his family lost their home in the Black Forest Fire. Rather than taking the insurance money and moving on, they chose to rebuild from the ground up and maintain their connection to our community.

Empire Roofing and Restoration still operates using the same principals Joe established when he was a on man shop.  We always strive to give each customer the best experience possible during the challenging process of having their roof replaced or in an emergency restoration. We pride ourselves on the fact that 75% of our business comes from referrals and previous customers. That just proves that Joe’s “always doing the right thing” philosophy is the formula for success!
