The Porter family started Porter Roofing & Restoration in 2019 to provide an experience that is about more than just the roof over your head – it is about the relationship that forms when you place trust in someone to work on your biggest personal investment. We vow to build and keep your trust by delivering distinctly professional service in every interaction starting with the initial inspection, advocating for your interests with your insurance carrier, selecting materials, scheduling, installation, and clean-up. The work is not done until you are 100% satisfied. Jesse Porter and his family stand behind this promise every time and are proud to put their name on their work and, ultimately, your home.
Our mission is to delight our customers by making every roof project genuinely enjoyable by delivering exceptional craftsmanship, service and communication on every project.
Porter Roofing seeks to raise homeowner expectations of what it should be like to work with any home improvement contractor. We are leading by example by thoughtfully educating customers about what to expect throughout the construction process and advocating for the best interests of the customer.
Meet Jesse Porter, Founder
Porter Roofing & Restoration
Jesse and his four siblings grew up in Kokomo, IN, where he graduated from Indiana University Kokomo with a B.S. in Accounting. Jesse knew from an early age that he wanted to own his own business and gained valuable customer service, leadership and management experience working for Quill, the nation’s leader in office supply services for more than 60 years. In 2014, he was recruited by a customer to join their organization, which happened to be a roofing company. Jesse realized he had a passion for the roofing and construction industry and, together with his family, launched Porter Roofing & Restoration in 2019.
Upon joining the roofing industry, Jesse devoted his energies to learning how insurance policies work and how adjusters evaluate damage and replacement costs. This expertise allows him to be a firm and successful advocate for his customers when they are faced with storm damage and uncertainty about how to restore their home’s roof. Jesse and his team recognize that many homeowners are unfamiliar with what happens leading up to getting a new roof. Educating customers about insurance policies, roofing materials, the construction process and what to expect at every step is a major component to Porter Roofing’s values and standard of service.
Jesse, Maria and their children live on the northside of Indianapolis and the family can often be found on jobsites watching construction, talking with homeowners, and learning about the family business.
