our lifelong story
1987: Jan’s Roofing // When Russel was 13, he started working with his Uncle, Jan Overson, at Jan’s Roofing on weekends and summers. He worked over the next several years with his brother, Clinton Hyman, and other uncle, Guy Overson, working as a shingler’s assistant, tear-off foreman, shingler, and then tile repairman.
1994: JRC Roofing // Jan moved to Colorado leaving Russel and Clinton to run the new partnership, JRC Roofing, in Arizona while he opened the same company in Colorado Springs. Jan eventually returned to Arizona and the three continued to work together along with several other family members running the company.
1998: Gryphon Roofing // Russel became President and majority owner of the company as the family transformed their hard work into a corporation. Gryphon Companies, Inc. was born; the company was named Gryphon after the half lion, half eagle mythical creature who protects treasure.
2017: 30 Years in Business // 2017 marks 30 years in business for Russel. We have had some name changes over the years, however we are still offering the same professionalism today as in 1987.
