Drake Roofing Co. was established in 1875 by Ken Drake, making Drake Roofing one of the oldest businesses in Polk County, Iowa.  In 1980, Bob Drake, grandson of the founder, incorporated Drake Roofing and named Dick Groom his partner in the business. Drake Roofing Inc.ís current owners are Dick Groom, retired, and Rod Schmidt, President, an employee since 1981. 

Drake Roofing has remained a small local company, providing Des Moines and the surrounding area business owners with individual attention to the roofing needs of their buildings.

We pride ourselves in working with business owners to obtain as much useful life from their roof as possible and yet knowing when to tell the owner that additional repairs will be fruitless and it is time to replace the roof.

Drake Roofing installs many different roof systems, tailoring the recommended roof system to the special conditions of each individual roof.

We install the following roofing systems:
