Norman Roofing Company Working Around The Clock After Hail Storm
Norman is still reeling from a violent hail storm earlier this week. A one-stop-shop roofing company said it works around the clock to serve different communities.
Brett Johnson is just one of many Norman homeowners with roof damage and broken windows.
“It was scary,” said Johnson. “I’ve lived here all my life. I am 44 and I have never experienced a storm like this. ”
In addition to roof damage and six broken windows, Johnson said the storm knocked down his fence.
“It was like there was a real explosion,” Johnson said. “It felt like an explosion, because I’ve never seen windows. Breaking double glazed windows. “
Johnson said he cleaned up as best he could that night. He then contacted Statewide Roofing, Inc.
“Most of our guys, we probably need three, four hours of sleep every night since it happened,” said Blaze Gray, the owner of Statewide Roofing, Inc. “We probably boarded up a few hundred windows, skylights, solar tubes.”
Since there was extensive damage throughout the city, Gray is encouraging people to welcome contractors, but make sure they have the proper permits. If you are unsure, you can get the number of the construction industry board to see if they are registered.
Gray said the company will likely work on hail storm repairs in the coming years.
