HINKLE ROOFING & CONSTRUCTION, INC. is a licensed, family-owned, roofing company which was opened by Bob and Betty Hinkle in 1968. Initially, they operated their business out of their home. In 1978, they expanded to a warehouse on San Benito Avenue in Gerber. Then in 1981, they purchased the old Minch’s Feed lot, and with a lot of hard work, converted the large grain elevator building into an office where they have been operating ever since. In 1988, Mr. Hinkle partially retired and became a consultant to his sons-in-law, Todd Eklund and Bruce Peabody. They added residential construction to their list of services. Today, the company is still family owned and operated by Todd and his wife, Anja.
