Power Roofing’s Burns boys, (L to R) Ryan, Kevan, Tim and Tyler, believe in giving back to area communities.
Tim Burns was born and raised in Wisconsin and met his wife when they were in the eighth grade. The Burnses called Tulsa home in the ’70s while attending Oral Roberts University. After graduation, they moved to Florida and Tim began his career in commercial and residential contracting, specializing in hurricane storm shutters.
Burns and his oldest son, Kevan, combined their work experience and business ethics with the creation of T&K Contracting and Power Roofing & Exteriors. Kevan retired from a seven-year career as a professional baseball player to join his dad in business. According to Tim, “We’ve built a quality roofing business with a foundation of integrity.” Kevan adds, “Our entire family believes in quality, not quantity, and that’s how we run our business.” Two younger brothers, Ryan and Tyler, have recently joined their brother and dad in the roofing enterprise.
Rounding out the owner management team is Greg Olson, general manager. Greg is the son of the Hall of Fame Coach Lute Olson, retired head basketball coach for the University of Arizona.
Power Roofing employs quality inspectors to assist customers in the complete process of replacing their roofs, siding and gutters that have been damaged by hail or wind. After inspecting your home for damages, they will assist you with the steps you need to take, including contacting your insurance company. A company representative will even meet with the estimator assigned by your insurance company to evaluate suspected damages to your home. It’s really nice having a professional help direct you through the process from start to finish.
The Power Roofing & Exteriors team: (L to R): (Front Row) Kevan Burns and Rebal, Jenna Crabtree, Clarissa Marquez, Margrit Harris, Fran Queally, Zack Hendricks, Bill Hendricks, Bill Weber, (Back Row) Greg Olson, Tim Burns, Ryan Burns, Tyler Burns, Russell Harris, Tom Queally, Dane Olen, Bryan Joynt, Korey Wedemeyer, Gary VanRossum and Walker Whitely.
Tim reminds everyone that April 7, 2009, is the last day to file a hail damage claim for the April, 2008 hail storm, and June 1, 2009 is the last day to file a hail damage claim for the June 2008 hail storm.
Power Roofing maintains over $1 million of shingles in stock and can build within weeks, not months. The family owned and operated business has over 75 collective years of experience, their crews are fully insured, and they work with all insurance companies. The business is fully insured and bonded, and 24-hour emergency service is available.
The Power Roofing family of employees really makes a good impression when you have the opportunity to meet and visit with them. The quality of their individual character is immediately apparent, and you can tell that they respect one another and their patrons and truly appreciate those in the Tulsa metropolitan area who have used their services. The company has generously given back to the Tulsa area through sponsorships with the Make-A-Wish Foundation Concept Home, American Cancer Society, Cattle Baron’s Golf Classic, Live the Dream Athletics, and Calvary Boys Ranch. Power Roofing was also a sponsor of the Tulsa Drillers 4th of July fireworks exhibition and is active in the Rotary Club of Tulsa.
Clarissa Marquez, logistic manager of Power Roofing, is actively leading the organization in a company-driven toy and food collection project. “With the holidays rapidly approaching, it is important to remember those in need,” she says. Power Roofing’s Big Unit motor coach will be making stops throughout the area to collect non-perishable food items and unwrapped toys. If you or your business, church or other organization would like to be involved, or if you are with a charity in need of toys and food items, please call Clarissa at (918) 394-7697.
If you’re looking for a leader in storm restoration – residential or commercial – you have found it. If you want to get involved with them this holiday season by reaching out to others in our community who are less fortunate, give Power Roofing & Exteriors a call.
