about us

Since 1968, Thomas Roofing has built a reputation for excellence by adhering to the highest standards of performance at every phase of the roofing process, whether installing a new roof or replacing an old one. That rich history continues to shape our future; and Thomas Roofing continues to evolve to meet the changing needs of a growing and more advanced customer base, primarily along the Gulf Coast.

We continually approach each project with the determination to go above and beyond and ensure our daily decisions are aligned with our vision and these guiding principles. As a result, we deliver superior, worry-free roofing and sheet metal services to commercial, institutional, industrial, healthcare and residential markets.

We believe what sets us apart is simple. The difference between mediocrity and excellence is attention to detail. And attention to detail is the foundation of our Quality Assurance program, which allows us to consistently execute projects for our customers that exceed their expectations. Our continued commitment to professionalism and industry standards is reflected in our active membership in the National Roofing Contractors Association (NRCA link / logo) since 1981.

Thomas Industries, which is headquartered in Mobile, actually began in the early 1960’s as Owen and Burnette Roofing.  Larry P. Thomas joined the company in 1968 and began to acquire ownership.  By 1971, the business name changed to Burnette and Thomas Roofing Company, Inc.

In 1980 Larry Thomas acquired the remaining interests of his partners.  He assumed the leadership role of what then became Thomas Roofing Company, Inc. Larry Thomas led the company and his wife, Jan, took on the roles of company accountant, comptroller and corporate secretary.

In the late 1980s, Larry began proudly welcoming a second generation of Thomas entrepreneurs, sons Derek, Kyle and Cory. The Thomas sons aggressively embraced advances in technology in order to enhance the responsiveness, accuracy and quality of service that is expected by our clients. As Cory came on board, the company opened a General Contracting division. In April of 2005, the family changed the company’s name to Thomas Industries, Inc. to reflect the expansion of its construction services.

Today, the company’s scope of work ranges from modern office complexes to award-winning historical structures. Thomas Industries remains the leader in commercial roofing, sheet metal and construction in the region.
