HOISINGTON — A roofing company based out of Topeka , Faith Roofing, has opened a location in Hoisington. They also have locations in St. Louis, Johnson County, Wichita, Kansas City and Lawrence.
“We’re very happy to be here,” said Erin Easum, marketing manager.
The business opened in 2003 when owner Brent Boman was attending Kansas State University. His father had owned a remodeling business, and Brent needed the business to provide for his family. Brent had worked with his father throughout his growing up years.
“I put my first roof on when I was 17-years-old,” said Boman.
By 2005, Boman was doing 1.5 million in annual volume and had to drop out of college with only nine hours left to complete. In 2006, Boman bought his Dad out. In 2013, the business did 13 million.
While one of his crews was out working in Larned, Hoisington was identified as an area that would provide a good opportunity to open a business.
“Specifically a supplier pushed us into this town,” said Boman. “We checked it out, and we did like it.”
Boman will be commuting for the time being.
“Small towns are kind of who we are,” said Boman. “We’re excited to have this as a satellite office.”
The company does work with both commercial and residential roofing systems made of stone coated steel, asphalt, synthetic slate and shake. In addition, they will install seamless guttering, gutter guards and vinyl siding. For commercial business, they provide elasotmeric coatings, standing seam, stone coated steel, synthetic shake/slate, TPO and EPDM membranes.
They also repair roof leaks and siding and have already done about nine roofs in Hoisington.
“We have a lot of experience will insurers,” said Boman. “We’ll do negotiations.”
Because it is a Christian-based company, a portion of the invoice will be donated to charity. “I devoted my life to walk in Christ,” said Boman. “Everything I do is to glorify him. It is who Iam.”
