About Us

Blending an affinity for history with a passion for old-world craftsmanship—Tom Truelson founded Forest Roofing to serve the niche of historical and specialty roofing.

After working as a roofing contractor during his high school summers, Tom went on to college to earn a history degree and become a history teacher. And while history and roofing may seem unrelated, they form the foundation for what makes Forest Roofing so unique. The passion for history, education and the roofing trade presented a unique opportunity in the industry that very few could offer potential clients.

Distinguishing itself from other roofing companies, Forest Roofing employs highly seasoned and salaried craftsmen, artisans and coppersmiths who are skilled working with specialty roofing materials.

Named “Roofing Contractor Young Gun” by Roofing Contractor magazinea short list of contractors making their mark on the industry—Tom takes a team approach and leads a talented and dedicated staff who share a common goal.
