Top Line Roofing Serves Customers with Integrity and Professionalism

When it comes to repairing a roof or installing a brand-new one, homeowners that hire Top Line Roofing can feel confident they are receiving an honest estimate and professional, courteous service. “Top Line Roofing works with customers to discover their true needs, to educate them on the roofing issues they face, and to present them with options that work best for their budget and their needs,” stated Wayne Sorenson, owner of Top Line Roofing. He’s proud to report that much of his business comes from the referrals of satisfied customers. Currently celebrating 25 years of business, Top Line Roofing is dedicated to serving the community’s long-term needs.


When Wayne first opened the business, his primary focus was on roof repairs. Since that time, Top Line has expanded into the re-roofing realm, applying lessons learned from the repair side of the business. “Fifty percent of Top Line’s work involves repairs that correct the mistakes of other roofers. We have learned how to install roofs correctly the first time and avoid these mistakes,” said Wayne. Top Line provides free estimates, and Wayne encourages homeowners to have their roofs evaluated every 18 to 24 months to prevent minor issues from becoming major problems.

Another way Top Line sets itself apart from the competition is through its use of the latest technology. Wayne’s truck is equipped with a computer and printer, and in most cases a typed estimate can be provided on-site. “We also use satellite technology to aid in measuring the size, area, and pitch of a roof,” explained Wayne.

According to Wayne, Top Line has earned a reputation for being quick, clean, and professional. “Our employees have spent years in the roofing industry, are well-trained in all types of roofing, and are able to analyze and assess the needs of our clients. We also continue to educate our roofing professionals on the newest materials and techniques, as well as safety procedures,” said Wayne. Employees train and review every week, he explained. “We review current jobs and discuss concerns, what happened, and how things can be improved, so all our crews are in unison and we can provide the same service throughout all of our jobs.” Top Line Roofing’s safety training and equipment surpasses OSHA requirements.

Top Line is also a member of the San Diego Roofing Contractors Association (SDRCA), and over the years, Wayne has served as president, treasurer, and chairman of the Roof Education committee and the Build-a-Roof committee, the charitable arm of the organization.
