The Founder: Sunny's Story

Master Roofing Company - Sunny Kwon

Humble beginnings inspire ordinary people to become masters in their area of passion.  Sunny Kwon shares his journey of being an immigrant who started from the bottom to operating his very own roofing company in Oakland, CA.  Master Roofing Company is his brainchild – created through decades of hard work, dedication and integrity.

Sunny has come a long way since then.  His passion for roofing made him a well-respected expert in the industry.  Thirty-eight years later, he is still the same hardworking roofer who pays attention to the smallest details, recommends accurate solutions, and shows a friendly and helpful attitude that endears him to numerous clients.  The longevity of his roofing venture can be credited to the genuine, fair and transparent professional relationships he creates and strengthens with clients and suppliers.  He is consistently learning and teaching through his craft, and imparting his extensive knowledge and proven roofing strategies to the entire MRC team.

“I came to America in 1980 as an immigrant from Korea.  My wife and I, with our 1-year old son, started a new life in this country.  We did not know the language, or the culture.  We had no other family, and no money.  Our past reminds me of the feeling of being alone and not having a way of securing a future for my family.  But it was this feeling of insecurity that woke me up each morning and gave me the drive to find a job.  It fueled me to work relentlessly to ensure a roof was over my family's head and food was on the table.” – Sunny Kwon
