About Empire Roofing and Restoration

What makes Empire Roofing and Restoration different from other roofing companies in Colorado Springs? As a locally owned, family business, we’ve been in Colorado Springs since 1990 — and in that time we’ve earned the trust of over 12,000 clients. We make sure we’re available to answer questions before, during, and after the roofing or restoration process, and we want to ensure that our customers are 100% satisfied from start to finish!

Some common roofing repairs include: cracked or broken flashing, broken shingles, improperly sealed valleys, cracked vent booting, improperly installed skylights, ice dam buildup, and clogged gutters.  We’ll find the problem, give you a written estimate, and get it fixed right.


Our roots:

We’re a local, family-owned and operated business. Founded in 1990, our owner, Joe Apsey-Vaughn, is a Colorado Springs native and has lived in Black Forest since 1992.

In the early days, Joe was just looking to work and provide for his family. He did estimates in the morning and roofs in the afternoon, making him a true one-man shop! He took pride in being straightforward and fair with his customers, and he earned a reputation for always doing the right thing. It didn’t take long until word spread and Empire Roofing started to grow. In 1998, we earned our first Excellence in Customer Service award from the Better Business Bureau, and we continue to 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 out of the area, they chose to rebuild and maintain their connection to our community.


Our principles:​

Empire Roofing and Restoration still operates using the same principles Joe established when he was a one-man shop: we strive to give each customer the best experience possible, and we live by Joe’s “always do the right thing” philosophy. This approach has paid off, and we’re proud to know that 75% of our business comes from referrals and previous customers.

Sometimes the roofing repair is as simple as fixing a nail that has come loose. If that’s the case, our highly-trained estimators let you know.  Our name and reputation are our greatest assets, so the experts at Empire Roofing and Restoration will never try to sell you a service you don’t need.
