Over 40 years of Experience – Quality You Can Count on


In the 90’s, Jim Daech began a construction company with his friend, Mike Bauer. Jim had a college degree in finance and experience working for a major insurance company in claims and Mike had the knowledge necessary for building and remodeling homes working for various contractors while working his way through college. Soon, Jim and Mike began focusing on roofing as the market was severely lacking professional roofing companies.
Mike left in 2006 to become a police officer, leaving the business in Jim’s hands. Jim ran a successful business dedicated to customer service and “doing the job right” using high quality materials and installation.

In 2015, brothers Bud Jacob and Scott Jacob acquired Daech & Bauer. Bud and Scott run the day to day operation with over 40 years combined industry experience and Jim serves in an advisory role as a board member utilizing his 17 years in the roofing industry and financial expertise. They all three have ownership in the company. Daech & Bauer specializes in residential and commercial roofs, roof repairs and insulation. The combined strengths of the owners, employees and business partners make it one of the premier roofing companies in the St. Louis area.
