Company Overview

In 1947, Lawrence E. Houck, had a simple vision and started a small masonry contracting business. In 1980, after having served in the US Army, graduating from Penn State University and working with Houck, Lawrence’s son, Gary L. Houck, bought the company. Under Gary’s leadership, the company first expanded their capabilities to include masonry restoration services. Then in 1982, he purchased Bader & Son Roofing and Flooring Company. Over the years, the Houck companies have been honored with numerous local and national awards in recognition of their craftsmanship and commitment to safety. What began as a two-man operation is now a growing company servicing the entire mid-Atlantic region.

Better known as the Houck Group, Inc., the organization consists of two subsidiaries working throughout PA, MD, VA, DC and the Mid-Atlantic region. Tradition, pride and experience best explains our approach to restoring the most intricate monuments, buildings and historical structures. Our skilled craftspeople understand historic methodology and the best way to seamlessly blend with new technology.

Houck & Company, Inc. handles masonry restoration, concrete rehabilitation, caulking/joint systems, waterproofing and protective coatings. Our restoration craftspeople are known for their extreme attention to detail – whether it’s restoring a religious structure, a historical monument or building or making repairs to a modern, 20-story high-rise building.

Houck Services, Inc. handles roofing, roof maintenance, industrial repair and flooring system installations. They install all types of resinous flooring, along with roofing systems that include green and garden systems, single-ply, hot and cold applied, built-up, modified, copper, slate, shingles and structural and architectural metal. In addition, they offer preventative roof maintenance programs – including 24/7/365 routine and emergency roof repair service.

What sets the Houck organization apart from others is our continued commitment to Safety, Quality and Performance. We believe in the importance of investing in the development, training and well-being of our employees, and we work hard to ensure the customers’ satisfaction on every project.

2017 marks Houck’s 70th year in business. With our focus on the future, implementing state-of-the-art technology, providing quality products and installation methods and maintaining our core values, we excitedly look forward to the next 70 years and beyond.
