Our Mission and Who We Are
Bonfe Exteriors comes from a long history of successful family-owned businesses. It started in 1951 when Sam Bonfe, an Italian immigrant began his automotive repair shop with a focus on quality service to his customers. He started with a ten stall mechanical shop and one employee. The shop is now run by the third generation, and is recognized as one of top automotive shops nationwide.
Inspired by his father, Joe Senior Bonfe started a business of his own in 1998 building custom residential homes. In 2017, Joe Bonfe II, joined his father after a successful career in playing minor league baseball for the New York Mets. Together they revamped Bonfe Builders, and just a few years later, started another business, Bonfe Exteriors in 2020.
Recently in 2022, Joe Bonfe II made the transition to partner with his wife, Kristina Bonfe to carry out their vision of a Kingdom Business. They married in 2018, and have been blessed with a daughter, Madisynn (2021), followed by their son, Joseph III (2023). Both are excited to raise their children in the business and hope they will be inspired to carry on the strong line of family owned businesses.

Co-Owner, Chief Operating and Technology Officer
With Joe’s keen eye for technological advances, Bonfe Exteriors continues to stay ahead of the curve with their use of drones. Drones help customers experience higher insurance approval rates and keep our salesmen safer.
Joe is passionate about serving the youth at Substance Church. He realized there was a need for youth to have an opportunity to develop their character alongside their athleticism. In just one year, the sports group has over 30 kids. “Incorporating God into your life doesn’t have to only happen on Sundays. Every day and activity is an opportunity to serve God and others.”
Co-Owner, Chief Culture Officer and Head of Design
Kristina has a sincere passion to reach the women who are struggling to find freedom from fear, shame, and addiction. She speaks at conferences, churches, organizations, and schools about her journey of overcoming an eating disorder while climbing 55 14,000 foot mountains in Colorado in 87 days.

“My hope is that people will see our company as so much more than just another ‘roofing company.’ We’re hoping people will be inspired to take part in our mission to empower the disadvantaged women in our community.”

Staff training and development has always been a passion of mine. Building relationships whether it be with customers, clients or coworkers is always rewarding. Isaiah 41:10
