About Our Roofing Company in Springfield, Illinois
Your local exterior remodeling company located in Springfield, Illinois
Sutton Roofing & Siding was started in 1946 by Edsel and Mayme Sutton in Springfield, Illinois. Edsel sold the work and Mayme ran the business. They had an installer and focused solely on roofing and siding. In those days, there were only a handful of colors to offer customers. The Sutton’s prided themselves on using the highest quality materials and installation available. Then, they put their name on it and offered a guarantee.
A handful of projects they did in those early days can still be seen on homes in the older areas of Springfield today. In the late 1970’s, Douglas Sutton moved back to Springfield and took over the family business for his parents, Edsel and Mayme. He changed the name to reflect the expanded remodeling services. The new name was Sutton Siding & Remodeling, Inc. A marketing partner of Doug’s was responsible for one of the most successful marketing campaigns in Springfield. Sutton Siding & Remodeling adopted the slogan, “You call us, we don’t call you.” That is because some key competitors at the time were dialing for dollars every evening and on weekends bothering people for appointments.
"The Sutton’s prided themselves on using the highest quality materials and installation available. Then, they put their name on it and offered a guarantee."
The slogan worked and separated Sutton’s from the vultures lurking on the phone. People still refer to that slogan today and refer to Sutton’s as Sutton Siding.
Fast forward to 1995 and Douglas Sutton Jr, along with his brother Michael Sutton, took over the family business. Eventually, the duo decided to change the name to Sutton’s. The pair added a property restoration division recognizing a need in the marketplace to help customers after a fire or storm damage.
Together, the brothers still operate the business in partnership and work in the business every day in the same office on Peoria Road on Springfield’s north side. Sutton’s has four distinct divisions: Exteriors, Remodeling, Insurance Restoration and Service. Sutton’s started as a roofing and siding company and is one of the larger roofing and siding companies in Central Illinois. “Our focus isn’t to be the biggest, its to be the best.” Doug Sutton Jr
