Father and son Tim and Kevan Burns emphasize giving back to the community at Power Roofing & Exteriors.
Last year, Power Roofing in Bixby held their first holiday canned food campaign and toy drive. “It was very successful. We raised over $10,000 in food and toys for Bixby and the surrounding communities,” says owner Tim Burns. The company’s goal is to go above and beyond that amount this year, when many people need help more than ever.
Power Roofing’s Big Unit motor coach will be making stops at local retailers throughout the area to collect non-perishable food items and unwrapped toys. “It’s important to us that do what we can for others during the holiday season,” says Tim. “Our emphasis is on keeping it local.” Power Roofing has supported a number of charitable organizations, including the Make-A-Wish Foundation Concept Home, American Cancer Society, Cattle Baron’s Golf Classic, Live the Dream Athletics and Calvary Christian Boarding Academy. They are also active in the Rotary Club of Tulsa. If you are with a charity in need of toys and food items, or would like to find out about when and where the Big Unit will be, call Power Roofing at (918) 394-7697.
Power Roofing is a real family affair. Tim and his son Kevan operate the business based on the foundations of quality work and integrity. Customers from Bixby, Tulsa, Broken Arrow, Jenks, Glenpool, Mannford, Sapulpa, Mounds and Kiefer praise the staff, and are especially pleased with their knowledge of the insurance aspect of roofing. All Power Roofing employees are insurance claims specialists. “Ninety-five percent of what we do is insurance claims work,” says Kevan. “We want people to know it’s still not too late to file claims for roof damage you’ve received. It’s important not to delay.”
The licensed, bonded and insured professionals at Power Roofing are experienced in replacing both residential and commercial roofs of all materials – flat roofs, architectural roofs, three-tab shingled roofs, and asphalt, cedar and shake shingles. They also contract for siding, gutters and interior damage caused by roof leaks. Tim says that now is a great time to get a new roof. “And it doesn’t take us months – we can get a roof up within two weeks.”
Power Roofing has over a million dollars worth of shingles in stock, including high impact shingles, which insurance companies are encouraging consumers to use. “We have a full selection of hail resistant shingles,” says Tim. “Unlike the high impact shingles of the past, the grains remain on the newer ones, meaning you won’t have an unsightly roof is there is a storm.” You can save 5 to 15 percent on premiums when you opt for high impact shingles. Call your insurance agent for more information.
Tim and Kevan are proud that Power Roofing has been approved as a State of Oklahoma Certified Contractor and is on the state’s list of first responders for reconstruction in disaster areas. They have a van equipped with tarps, generators, ladders and other materials that are critical to first responder duties. “We’re proud of this aspect of our business,” says Kevan. “We show up right alongside the fire and police.” This voluntary service is provided free of charge by the company, and is just one more way the Burns family is able to give back to the community.
Power Roofing provides platinum emergency service for every roof they install or repair, and staff is available 24/7 for leaks or other problems.
Estimates for repair damage are free. They work with all insurance companies, and employees are trained to assist the homeowner with filing their claims. This year Power Roofing was awarded by the Tulsa Better Business Bureau and placed on their "Honor Roll" for customer service satisfaction.Visit www.powerroofing.net for more information.
