Action Roofing - Our Story


Action Roofing was established in Santa Barbara in 1985 by Jack Martin, CEO and active general manager of the company. Through the years we have grown to 157 full-time employees, and many have been with us since the company started. We have worked hard to develop an excellent reputation in the local community.

We are fully insured, bonded, and licensed in the state of California.  We are affiliate companies with Beyond Heating and Air and also Action Energy.  Due to these relationships, we are able to perform work in the roofing, sheet metal, gutters, carpentry, solar panels and backup batteries, light electrical, and HVAC trades for any residential or commercial application. 

We are members of the Better Business Bureau, Western States Roofing Contractors Association, and the National Roofing Contractors Association. Since 2010 Jack Martin, along with other members of our executive staff, have been active board members of the Santa Barbara Contractors Association assisting in support to the community for local contractors. 

Our primary focus is re-roofing of single-family homes, condominiums, and commercial properties; additionally, we have recently developed an extensive roof maintenance division for both industrial and residential properties. We are certified applicators of most major materials manufacturers, including Certainteed Roofing Products, IB Roof Systems, and many more.  In 2006, I.B. Roof Systems named Action Roofing California Contractor of the Year.  We are proud to say that we have three full crews trained and dedicated to the installation of this product.  In 2022, DaVinci Roofscapes awarded Action Roofing with a National Award for installation of an amazing local Santa Barbara project with photographs of this project featured in their marketing brochures.  

Since we have a full sheet metal fabrication shop, two full-time carpentry crews, and four mobile seamless gutter machines to complete all phases of the roof-related work, we can eliminate the wait time for other trades necessary to keep your jobs moving.  

The bottom line is that our crews have years of experience and training in the installation of all types of roofing including tile, composition shingles, synthetic shake roofing, slate, and metal roofing so no matter what type of roofing you need, we can help you. 

We have crews available 24 hours a day for emergency calls during the rainy season and utilize a vehicle-based GPS tracking system to shorten our response time.

I'm sure you will find Action Roofing is a well-established company with an excellent customer relations history in Santa Barbara and you can trust us with your roofing needs.

Thank you,

Jack Martin
