The Early Days of Metal Roofing Headquarters

The Wells/Boyer Family has been one of the most trusted names in residential metal roofing and siding since 1959, when Bob Wells decided to start a small metal siding company in Ocala, FL, after a career a world champion rodeo cowboy. The original name was Baywel Inc, which quickly grew into one of the top metal roofing & siding companies in the Gulf Coast region.

In 1963, the expanding company moved its headquarters to Birmingham, providing a central location from which they could manage metal roofing projects in Huntsville, Birmingham, and Mobile, AL.

Two of Mr. Well's sons, Robert & Robin, eventually followed in his footsteps and continued to focus on metal construction, eventually pioneering the residential metal roofing industry in Alabama, Mississippi, & Florida.

Mr.HQ. in 2020

We are one of the most recognized residential organizations in North America, with features on 2 different national t.v. shows and a cover story in Roofing Contractor Magazine in 2019 alone. MrHQ was recently ranked by Remodeling Magazine as 1 of America's "Top 100 Firms in Home Improvement". That's a lot of honors for just one busy year, but they're still just a small family business at heart, using the family's tried and true business philosophy that's worked for 60 years of metal roofing success...
