Our Story


Marathon Eavestroughing, Decks & Rails leads the market in our community, but we didn’t start out that way.  Marathon was built through perseverance and determination from the ground up. In 1975, Bruce Fochler began going door-to-door with his children Cory and Greg in tow, seeking out customers who needed new eavestroughs.  Gradually building a positive reputation, and persisting through the ups and downs of the economy, Bruce and his wife Karen grew the business from these humble beginnings to the well-known local business that it has become. 

Today, Marathon has 7 trucks, 8 product lines, a show room, and over 16 employees. Karen and Bruce are now enjoying retired life, with the next generation running the family business. Greg and Cory, having spent their entire lives involved with Marathon, continue to operate with a dedication to exceptional customer service and community involvement.
