Roofing & Waterproofing Systems

For over 10 decades the Barrett Company has had hands-on experience, professionally engineered products, and stems in the high-performance roofing and waterproofing markets.

We are a national leader in evolving Roofing Systems and Green Roofs with nearly 9 decades of experience. 

The Barrett Company was started in 1928 by Noah Barrett, an out of work blacksmith, and his son Emmett, who together began business as roofing contractors. As relatives of Col. Samual Barrett, the patent holder of built-up roofing, Noah and Emmett enjoyed success and steady growth in the built-up roofing contracting business. Their focus was on contracting residential and commercial roofs.


In 1975, the Barrett Company concentrated on the development of polymer-modified asphalt systems. Then in 1982, Barrett Company launched its most well-known, nationwide roofing line of products, Ram-Tough. For over ten decades, the Barrett Company has had hands-on experience, professionally engineered products, systems in the high-performance roofing, and waterproofing markets.


Today the Barrett Company continues its growth in the contracting business but has also become a national leader in evolving bitumen modification technology and design of high-performance waterproofing, built-up roofing systems, and vegetated roofs.


In August of 2019, Barrett Company was acquired by Keene Family of Companies with a renewed energy and commitment to the Roofing industry.
