Jonathan Raymond-President/Founder

Mr. Raymond started JnR Gutters, Inc. in 1987 with $10,000, a truck and the determination to grow his own business. With his newly purchased seamless gutter machine, Mr. Raymond began pounding the pavement to sell work while still holding down a fulltime job elsewhere. Within a couple of years, his hard work paid dividends when Sears came calling and made him a preferred contractor for all of their gutter work in the area. With a steadier stream of work now coming in, Mr. Raymond began slowly adding equipment and expertise to his business and branched out into all facets of roofing and exterior remodeling. Mr. Raymond has weathered all economic downturns by constantly reinvesting in his business and garnering a lengthy list of satisfied repeat customers. 30 years later, Mr. Raymond is still the first one in and the last one to leave, even though JnR is now a multi-million-dollar roofing and exterior remodeling company. Mr. Ramond is also an active member of the community organizations such as Habitat for Humanity, Team Haverhill and other civic organizations to donate contracting services in the community.

Regarding educational and professional certificates, Mr. Raymond is a graduate of Whittier Regional Vocational Technical High School, where he majored in HVAC technology. Since founding JnR Gutters, Inc., he has amassed numerous certifications and contractor awards:

  • Quality Master Certified with CertainTeed
  • GAF MasterElite Roofing Contractor
  • Englert Certified Metal Roofing Contractor
  • Golden Hammer Awarded Contractor
  • Mastic Preferred Contractor

In addition to the above, Mr. Raymond also holds his Sheet Metal Workers license (Lic #12294).
