Scudder Roofing: 40 Years of Success

After 40 years of business success, Scudder Roofing is still raising the roof and leading the way as the area’s go-to roofing replacement company.

Scudder Roofing is one of the oldest and most trusted roofing contractors in Monterey, Santa Cruz, and San Benito counties, and they are marking their 40th year of business success and teamwork starting this month. The company was founded by Pete and Karen Scudder out of a tiny Prunedale, CA garage in 1982. Today, Scudder Roofing is an award-winning operation with a world-class reputation for roofing craftsmanship, stellar customer care, and a tight-knit team dedicated to the company and its mission, vision, and values.

Under the direction of Pete Scudder, CEO, and founder, along with his COO daughter Jennifer Scudder, the roofing company has seen substantial growth over its 40 years on the Peninsula and is ranked as a Northern California powerhouse in the roofing industry. Pete also founded a sister company, Scudder Solar Electrical Energy Systems, in 2007. That move uniquely positioned Scudder as one of the few contractors in the state to offer a single, integrated, and highly experienced source for roofing and solar energy.

Pete Scudder grew up in Walnut Creek and started roofing during the mid-seventies for C.L. Frost, then Williams Roofing, and he has never looked back. Ask any entrepreneur, and they will undoubtedly tell you that they live and breathe their work; Pete Scudder is no different. After all, running a successful roofing company and staying in business through good times and bad, including recessions and a catastrophic pandemic, is certainly no small feat. Doing that with your doors open for 40 consecutive years is nearly impossible. But Pete will be the first to tell you that a roofing company – even one that’s been around this long – is only as good as those who work for it.

“We are celebrating 40 years of success together, including every member of the Scudder team and every customer we’ve served over the years,” said founder Pete Scudder. “The simplest way to say it is we’re still here 40 years later because of our people. It’s no secret we adore our employees, and I couldn’t be prouder of everything the team has accomplished. It’s just an incredible milestone for all of us.”

Scudder Roofing has served the tri-county area since its inception in 1982. Scudder is a staple in the Monterey region as a full-service residential and commercial roofing company with highly skilled, certified technicians and experience with all major brands and roofing application types, waterproofing, custom guttering, sheet metal fabrication, and more.

Forty years under the belt in the roofing industry doesn’t come without challenges. Still, the challenges ride side-by-side with what those 40 years mean: Tens of thousands of satisfied Scudder customers and projects completed, hundreds of passionate employees who give their all each day, years of giving back to the community and local charities, and a respected company that shows no sign of slowing down anytime soon.

“I couldn’t have done any of this without the support, sacrifice, and hard work of an incredible team that means the world to me,” Pete Scudder said. “Thank you to everyone, and here’s to our next 40 years together.”

Plans for an anniversary celebration are underway. Those who wish to learn more can contact Scudder Roofing at https://www.scudderroofing.com or call 831-373-7212.
