where we come from

Before venturing out on his own, Jose learned all of the roofing fundamentals and gained valuable experience by working for one of El Paso’s most prominent roofing companies in the late 70’s. With very limited resources, a newborn child and an unending will to succeed, Jose and Rosa Escalante started Escalante Roofing in 1983.

Initially, the struggling young couple operated their startup roofing company from their home. Jose coordinated jobs with his small crew in their backyard while Rosa juggled phones, payroll and motherhood from the kitchen counter. In 1996, the Escalante’s moved to their current location on Ivey road. Jose and Rosa now operate Escalante Enterprises with the help of their three children.
