Founded in 2001, the company’s initial start-up phase was called Abernathy Construction. A company that consisted of only one full time employee, Jon Abernathy. With the knowledge passed down from his father and grandfather he set out to make Abernathy a trusted, household name in the four states. Over the years Jon began to gain customer awareness due to his entrepreneurial drive and customer satisfaction! As word of mouth began to spread the news of Jon's exceptional business practices the company catapulted to new heights.
Fast forward to today, now Abernathy Roofing and Construction employs over 15 full time employees. Jon and Sarah are family oriented, devout Christians with incredible dedication and loyalty to customers and employees. Living locally their whole lives has only increased their love for the four states area and their commitment to serving and giving back to the community.
