Bowling Roofing  |   Our Story

Joseph S. Bowling Company Inc. was started in 1933 by my Great Grandfather Joseph S. Bowling. Joseph died in 1937 and his sons, my Grandfather Bernard Bowling and Great Uncle Jim Bowling were thrust into the roofing business at the young ages of 17 and 15. Young men at the time, while attending St. Xavier High School Louisville (Jim`38 Bernard`40) and with the help of the Xaverian Brothers continued to grow the roofing business. Bernard went on to school at the University of Notre Dame`44 and later took over at Plehn’s Bakery in St. Matthews in which two of my uncles and cousin continue to operate today. Jim continued successfully at Joseph S. Bowling Company Inc. until his death in 1982 when my father Michael Bowling took over. Michael operated the company from 1982 until 2013. In 2014, after 12+ years in the roofing industry, myself and my cousin Eric Bowling are operating this company as fourth generation owners of this locally owned roofing business.
