Meet Shamrock Roofing Executive Director Garen Armstrong

Shamrock owner Garen Armstrong

If you’ve ever had a roof repaired or replaced by Shamrock Roofing and Construction, you’re already familiar with how we operate. With more than 40 years of experience in residential and commercial roofing in the area, we’re one of the most respected—and most trusted—roofing contractors in KC.

Expanding Our Reach

Now we’re branching out into Lawrence, Kansas. Our goal is to help as many homeowners as possible with their roofing needs, whether they need a minor roof repair, a roof inspection, or a whole new roof. 

Recently, the owner of Shamrock Roofing, Garen Armstrong, was profiled by Roofing Contractor magazine. We thought this would be a great opportunity to introduce Garen and Shamrock Roofing to homeowners in Lawrence who haven’t had a chance to work with us yet.

It’s All in the Family

Shamrock was started in 1977 by Garen’s father, Jim. Garen grew up around the business, so you might say roofing is in his blood. When his father passed away, he decided he wanted to grow Shamrock Roofing and branch into other Midwest markets. Shamrock Roofing now serves not only the Kansas City metro area but Omaha, Lincoln, St. Louis, and Des Moines, too.

Garen wouldn’t have been able to grow the business as a KC roofing contractor if it weren’t for his father’s old-fashioned values. “What I learned from him is the integrity part of the business itself…The work ethic is important, but the integrity part of it and taking care of the homeowner in the business owner aspect of it is the most crucial part of it,” according to the Roofing Contractor article.

Our Employees Rock!

Shamrock Roofing benefits from a strong team mentality that also benefits customers.  That’s because we invest in robust training programs that keep our team members up to date on the latest and greatest in roofing materials and processes. “We use multiple training resources for the different aspects of the multifaceted responsibilities of our employees,” Garen said in the article. Shamrock bundles all its employee training programs, including customer service training, into one comprehensive training class offered through a portal dubbed Shamrock University. It’s this training that many feel gives Shamrock Roofing its edge among KC roofing contractors.

Shamrock Roofing and Construction is a GAF MasterElite roofer, Certified Residential Contractor with Malarkey, Master Shingle Applicator with CertainTeed, an Owens Corning Platinum Preferred Contractor, and a DaVinci Roofscapes roofer. Whatever type of roof or roofing material you’re interested in, we can help!  

Earning Customers’ Business

Shamrock Roofing must be doing something right. We’ve earned a rating of 4.8 out of 5 on Google out of over 250 reviews and a 5 out of 5 on Facebook reviews. These reviews are a testament to our professionalism, quality, and customer service, and we don’t take that lightly. We value our customers and make it our mission to do what’s right, helping educate them about roofing materials and processes and working with them on insurance claims. We know that without our customers, we wouldn’t stay in business very long.

Giving Back

Garen is also instrumental in creating the Roof 4 a Hero program. This is a program that provides a free roof to a deserving veteran or first responder each quarter. Nominees for the program are submitted by friends and family members. Shamrock donates time and materials—in conjunction with some of its partners in the industry—to get the job done for these brave citizens.
