Our History

The history of Pfister Roofing encompasses more than a century of quality service in roofing craftsmanship, two continents, and four generations of Pfisterer family management.

Ernst Pfisterer founded Pfister Roofing in Europe in 1889. A short five years later, Ernst received the gold medal for excellence in roofing craftsmanship. Management eventually passed to his son Herman. Dieter Pfisterer, the third generation in the roofing business, brought roofing craftsmanship to the United States.

Dieter began his apprenticeship in roofing, sheet metal and plumbing in 1953 while pursuing an engineering degree at night. Upon graduation as a master craftsman in roofing, Dieter emigrated to the United States to enhance his roofing knowledge.

While in the United States Dieter managed two mechanical contracting businesses and then became the maintenance engineer for a major pharmaceutical company. Subsequently, he joined a German roofing manufacturer, first as technical manager and finally, as national sales manager.

Combining his training, his practical experience in the roofing business, and the need in the US for roof restoration at historic sites and in the commercial sector, Dieter knew that the tradition of quality workmanship that began with his grandfather was needed in the United States.

In the 1980′s when Dieter acquired Koehler Roofing and Schmidt Roofing, Pfister Industries, USA, was born. Pfister Industries ultimately became Pfister Maintenance, Inc.

The experienced team, still led by Mr. Pfisterer, runs a full-service roofing company, which specializes in roof analysis, infrared moisture surveys, consultation, preventive maintenance programs, and the installation of single-ply and asphaltic roofing systems as well as metal and tile roofs. The Pfister name with 30 years in business and reputation remains among the finest in the industry.

Today, the tradition continues. Dieter’s son, Wayne, is actively involved in the Pfister Family of companies promoting renewable technologies that complement the roofing business.
