KS roofing professionals are proud of one of their own these days. Garen Armstrong, Executive Director of Shamrock Roofing and Construction, was highlighted in a profile piece in Roofing Contractor magazine recently, and we’re proud to say he made us look good!
Way Back When
Shamrock Roofing was started by Garen’s father Jim back in 1977. Since then, the business has grown exponentially, now operating in five major markets throughout the Midwest. It’s been named one of the top 10 Kansas City roofing companies by BloggerLocal. It also maintains an A+ rating and accreditation with the Better Business Bureau enjoys high rankings on multiple consumer review sites.
To what does the company owe this success? Armstrong says it’s a lot of hard work on everyone’s part. “The constant strive for excellence and to be the best pushes us to be successful in our industry,” he comments in the article. “There are 100,000 roofing contractors out there. If you want to be the best and grow, then you have to be focused on growing not only yourself but your production ability and your business acumen.”
Old-Fashioned Values are Still in Vogue
Armstrong took traits learned from his father as he was growing up and applied them to the business. These include integrity, a good work ethic, and the importance of investing in people — traits that never go out of style. At Shamrock Roofing, this has created a team of people who love what they do, go out and do it with enthusiasm every day, and always go out of their way to take care of the customer.
Shamrock handles all aspects of residential and commercial roofing. Whether customers need a roof replacement on a Kansas property or they need a roof inspection — which is free to residential customers — they’re here for them. No roofing job is too big or too small. All roofers are licensed, bonded, and insured. They’re also trained to be respectful and professional at all times. This is part of what sets Shamrock Roofing apart from other roofing contractors in Olathe and other areas of the city.
Investing in the Future
Shamrock employees are knowledgeable in all types of roofing materials on the market today. They stay up to date through a rigorous training program that combines all aspects of handling the business with everything employees need to know about the products and services they sell. It’s a lot to keep up with, but they’re ready to answer any question customers may have about anything roofing-related.
Armstrong also believes the company training program, affectionately called Shamrock University, plays a large role in its success. According to Armstrong in Roofing Contractor, “We use multiple training resources for different aspects of the multifaceted responsibilities of our employees.” All aspects of training are bundled together, including customer service and safety training. Armstrong says this has created a team mentality that’s pervasive throughout the company. “We also foster a great employee opportunity as we grow people into leaders both personally and professionally,” he says.
KS Roofing Done Right
Shamrock Roofing and Construction has grown into one of the best KS roofing contractors in the area. A large part of this growth can be attributed to Armstrong’s leadership, but he’ll be the first to tell you that it’s not just him. It’s the team spirit, the can-do attitude, and a willingness to put the customer first that really makes the difference.
