​​Our Roots

Our roots:
First and most importantly, we are a locally owned and family operated business. The company was started in 1990 by Joe Apsey-Vaughn, a Colorado Springs native, who moved to Black Forest in 1992.

In the early days, Joe was just looking to work every day to provide for his family. He would do estimates in the morning, and do the roofs in the afternoon, he was a true “one man shop”! He always was fair with his customers and was known 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 the Excellence in Customer Service award from the Better Business Bureau and continue our A+ rating year after year.

Empire Roofing and Restoration still operates using the same principals.  Always striving to give each customer the best experience possible, during the challenging process of having their roof replaced or an emergency restoration. We pride ourselves on the fact that 75% of all of the work comes from referrals or previous customers. That proves that “always doing the right thing” is the formula for success!

In 2016 we expanded again with a new location on the east side of Colorado Springs at 1335 Valley Street.
