In 1938, Jack Starnes founded Valley Roof and Insulation Co., of Chico, CA. After 12 years of running the business, he decided to partner with his two sons, Ted and Robert Starnes. They renamed the business Butte Roofing Company in March 1950, and a new era was born. In 1963, after Jack passed away, Ted and Robert took over the company. In 1964, Ted bought his brother's share to become the sole proprietor of Butte Roofing Company. Ted's son, Mike, began roofing with the company in 1972 after graduating high school. Ted ran a successful business and retired in 1997, leaving his son, Mike, to run the company. Having worked in the business for almost 40 years, Mike has a wealth of knowledge and experience in all facets of roofing. The grandson of Robert Starnes (Bobby) also works as an experienced roofer and project manager for Butte Roofing Co. Butte Roofing has always maintained a family-operated atmosphere, and currently employs 5 family members.
