Restoration Roofing: Committed to Honoring Heroes and Securing the Future of the U.S. Air Force

Texas — Restoration Roofing, a leader in the roofing industry, is proud to play a vital role in the construction projects at Ellsworth Air Force Base, South Dakota, supporting the new strategic mission for the U.S. Air Force with a focus on the groundbreaking B-21 Raider bomber.

The B-21 Raider, recognized as the first bomber of the 21st century, stands as the cornerstone of the U.S. bomber fleet, shaping the future of U.S. air power. Named in honor of Lt. Col. James “Jimmy” Doolittle and his daring Doolittle Raid of World War II, the B-21 Raider represents a remarkable leap forward in the world of strategic aviation. Doolittle’s heroic mission, launching twin-engine B-25 Mitchell bombers from the aircraft carrier USS Hornet, showcased the resilience of innovation and teamwork during pivotal moments in history.

Restoration Roofing takes immense pride in participating in the construction of facilities that will house and maintain the B-21 Raider, as well as train the future generation of airmen who will operate the most technologically advanced aircraft in the world. We are deeply committed to honoring the legacy of the individuals who have significantly shaped our nation’s history.
