Fairfax County, Virginia (November 28, 2022) – Earlier today, Governor Glenn Youngkin announced that SmartRoof, one of the East Coast’s leading roofing companies, will invest $350,000 to expand in Fairfax County. The company will relocate from its current location in McLean to occupy 25,000 square feet of office space at 11091 Sunset Hills Road in Reston. Fairfax County and Virginia successfully competed for the project, which creates 410 new jobs over five years.
“SmartRoof’s mission is to positively impact lives through roofing and solar,” said Joshua Jerge, CEO and Founder of SmartRoof. “This starts with our employees and ripples through the local communities where we work. We were founded in Virginia and are excited for the opportunity to keep our headquarters in Fairfax County and improve the lives of Virginians for years to come!”

“It’s great to see SmartRoof growing their presence in Fairfax County and adding hundreds of new jobs,” said Jeffrey C. McKay, Chairman of the Board of Supervisors. “Our climate change resilience will be powered by solar and other alternative forms of energy, and SmartRoof is helping to lead that effort in both residential and commercial locations. We’re proud to have their headquarters here and look forward to their continued innovation.”
“It is a privilege to witness the incredible growth of SmartRoof here in Fairfax County,” said Victor Hoskins, president, and CEO of Fairfax County Economic Development Authority (FCEDA). “SmartRoof’s commitment to community-conscious innovation has been a catalyst for change within their industry, and we are honored to have them continue to lead from their new headquarters in Reston.”
