The original company name was Kulp’s Coatings and specialized primarily in roof coatings. It was soon determined that roof coating would limit the scope of services that Kulp’s could perform. Shortly, general construction services and roofing membranes were added to the mix of products and services offered by Kulp’s. In 1987 the name was changed to Kulp’s Coatings and Construction to reflect the expanded services being performed.
As the formative years of the company passed, it was determined that the destiny of the company was more closely aligned with roofing and less aligned with general construction. The company’s name was finally changed to Kulp’s of Stratford in 1992. This name was chosen so as to never limit the product and service changes that might come over the years, and to serve as a premise for building a strong local brand.
In 2000, John Kulp joined his brother Bob in the business and has become the president of the company.
Kulp’s has been at the forefront of many industry changes since 1985. In 2001, seeing the need to offer better thermal and moisture protection services Kulp’s Of Stratford started to offer spray foam insulation as a way to build a superior building envelope and deliver even more value to clients. During that same year, Marathon Metals, LLC, was formed as a sister company to Kulp’s in order to provide specialty metal fabrications, trims, and roofing panels for other contractors and suppliers.
Kulp’s has always had the concept of hiring intelligent, motivated individuals. It is our belief that even difficult work like roofing and insulation can be a fulfilling way to provide for the needs of our employees and their families.
We look forward to the changes that are a part of the history yet to be made. We anticipate the future with an understanding that God has been the major part of building this company, and that He will be the foundation of our future success!
We display two types of written homeowner feedback on GuildQuality member profile pages: Comments and Reviews.
In response to our customer satisfaction surveys, homeowners share lots of comments about construction quality, communication, or any other question asked in the survey. Guildmembers can selectively publish these comments here on their profile page.
Reviews are different than comments. These are star ratings that homeowners ask us to publish, and they come with a written description of the type of experience they had working with their contractor. We publish all of the reviews we receive: positive and negative alike.Learn more about reviews and comments.
