About Us

Headquartered in Herndon, Virginia, Beacon is the largest publicly traded distributor of roofing materials and complementary building products in the United States and Canada. We are among the oldest and most established distributors in the industry.

Beacon is a leading provider of commercial and residential roofing, siding, windows, decking, insulation, specialty lumber, waterproofing, and air barrier systems to the North American building industry. We have supported contractors who rely on us to help them save time and build more for nearly 100 years.

Our team of more than 7,000 employees throughout North America works to ensure contractors have immediate, local access to the building supplies and roofing products they need, exactly when they need them. Through strategic investments in new technology and an ever-expanding network of locations throughout the United States and Canada, we help contractors save time, manage work more efficiently, and enhance their businesses. 

Empowering Builders to Build Better 

From the first quote to the final invoice, we are dedicated to the success of contractors. We maintain a massive network of more than 500 locations in the U.S. and Canada and a suite of construction supply digital resources in Beacon Pro+ to help contractors save time and work more efficiently with automated order workflows, live pricing, and material ordering, and mobile delivery tracking. 

The Key to Success 

Our employees are our greatest asset. We want them to be happy, healthy, and safe as partners in our success. We’re working with a new generation of employees to sustain the inclusive work environment that has been one of our core values for nearly a century. 

Safety Is One of Our Core Values

Safety is a core value of our organization. With a focus on employee health, incident prevention, and environmental sustainability, Beacon has a target of zero injuries. To do this, we continuously work with employees to ensure strong safety habits through on-the-job training, regular feedback, and wellness programs. 

Building Better Communities 

We recognize the lasting impact we can have on the communities in which we work and are committed to positive change. That means striving to do what is best for our customers, our employees, and the community around us through volunteer and fundraising efforts. 

As part of that commitment, Beacon supports the efforts of organizations like the Boys and Girls Club, Habitat for Humanity, and the Roofing Alliance for Progress’ Melvin Krugen Endowed Scholarship Program.
