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 various communities.
Brett Johnson is just one of many Normandy homeowners with roof damage and broken windows.
“It was scary,” Johnson said. “I’ve lived here all my life. I’m 44 and I’ve never seen a storm like this before.”
In addition to roof damage and six broken windows, Johnson said the storm blew down his fence.
“It was like there was an actual explosion,” Johnson said. “It felt like an explosion because I’ve never seen windows. Break double glazed windows.”
Johnson said he cleaned up as best he could that night. He then contacted Statewide Roofing, Inc.
“Most of our guys have probably been sleeping on three, four hours of sleep every night since it happened,” said Blaze Gray, owner of Statewide Roofing, Inc. “We probably boarded up a few hundred windows, skylights, solar tubes.”
As there was extensive damage throughout the city, Gray encourages people to welcome contractors, but make sure they are properly licensed. If you’re not sure, you can ask for their construction board number to see if they’re registered.
Gray said the company will likely work on repairs from the hail storm in the coming years.
