Kansas City Roofing Service History
BY: MIKE HALVERSON SR. | PRESIDENT/CEO
How many companies (let alone contractors) do you know that have been in business for over 78 years. The Halverson family has been in the roofing business since 1932. In 1932, Jesse Halverson Sr. (my grandfather) started out roofing new homes being built throughout the state of Iowa. When Jesse Halverson Jr. (my father) was old enough he was nailing on shingles right beside his dad.. My brother and I were raised up in the roofing business also roofing houses, churches, and big old barns in Iowa. My first experience was when I was about 12 years old I was carrying shingles up a 60 ft wooden ladder to my father as he roofed a church steeple in Lineville Ia. The last time I was up there that same roof was still there.
Grandfather passed away in 1969 and shortly after that, we moved to Kansas City and continued in the roofing business under the name of Halverson Roofing. Halverson Roofing continued to operate as a small roofing company until 1980 when my father retired and I took over the business. I wanted to grow the business from a small residential roofing company into a larger residential and commercial roofing company so I changed the name to its present name Kansas City Roofing.
The company has continued its longstanding tradition of providing the same outstanding service and quality to homeowners as well as businesses large and small. The company continues to be a family owned and operated business.
