The History of Authentic Roofing

5 Generations of Roofing

It all started in a heavy downpour on the streets on the streets of New York. There where many people in dire need of keeping their heads and their belongings dry. John Coyne sadly looking around was in despair when an inspiration arose from his heart. He wanted to help the people keep dry and be happy so from that time on the roofer was born. He then started 5 Star Roofing Company and the 5 stars symbolized his sons in military service during world war ll. After the war some of the sons returned to the roofing industry to continue to help the people keep dry and stay happy. In 1973 Bob Coyne was one of those sons and he continued the service with his sons, now in 2018 after successfully running the company his father started Pat Coyne Sr. Bobs oldest comes out of retirement with his son Patrick Coyne ll and his sons, and a new beginning emerges from a long time roofing family to continue serving the people with an Authentic experience that was once started from an inspiration in the 1930s so many generations ago…
